New DICC and "Lei Day"

Hello! Today I am sharing the latest DICC challenge with you, a day late, but hopefully not a buck short! Our newest Design Team member, Trudie, came up with the latest itinerary.


1. Shaped Card (no squares or rectangles)
2- Die cut shapes
3- Punched shapes
4- Bright colours 
5- Twine
6- Buttons
7- 2 images
8- One word sentiment
9- Tree
10- Clouds

For my card, I used item #'s 4, 7, 8, 9, and 10. This card also works for the latest Raise the Bar challenge, Lei Day.
 

I worked with Bombshell Stamps' Hula Girl for this card. I used a number of elements from this set on the card. I colored the items up with ink, Distress Inks, watercolor markers, and Copics. 


I love this set because of the little scenes that you can create. And let's face it, that Hula Girl is super cool! Or rather, hot. 

I used a mess of foam dots to give the card some dimension. You can see some of the foam peeking out from behind some of the images. I thought that you could really see the dimension from this angle. And speaking of Bombshells, I announced the May Hump Day Hop over on the Bombshell Blog today. Go take a peek! And don't forget to visit the DICC Blog to check out what the rest of the Design Team has cooked up for this latest Itinerary. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Christmas in July with Imagine Crafts & Stencil Girl!

Hello! Have you heard? The Imagine AIRs have been hopping with Stencil Girl! If you have been here before, you know I loooove me some stencils, so this collaboration was very exciting for me! The teams are hopping for 3 consecutive Saturdays, and this is week 2. I have the entire list of hop links at the bottom of the post. Be sure you don't miss anyone! I decided to to create an extra large gift tag with my new stencils. Using red cardstock, I taped down the Journal Texture #8 Stencil  and inked it up with Golden Glitz Delicata ink . I promise you, this is the BEST gold ink you will ever use! The Journal stamp only has 2 diamonds on it (it's a 4x4" stencil), so after I inked up the first pair, I moved over the stencil, lined it up, and inked again. Next I wanted to do something textural with the Urban Insiders Star . So I took some evergreen cardstock, taped down the star, and slathered on some yummy Iridescent Green Creative Medium . After the medium dried, I ga

Remembering Aletha

Greetings, Friends. This post today is part of a very special blog hop. We are celebrating the life of an amazingly talented artist and friend. The crafting community lost Aletha Jane Williams on May 5, 2019. Those of us that worked with her on Design Teams or on Challenge Blogs all agree that she was one of the sweetest and most talented women we knew. We are not here to mourn her loss though. This hop is happening in conjunction with a very special celebration of her life and her art that her husband Bob is holding in her home city of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Please join us in honoring our incredibly creative friend Aletha . My card features the "Remembering Aletha" Sprite, which Mitzi (owner and artist of Aurora Wings ) created specifically for this hop. She is generously giving the digi away to all, over on her blog. This sweet Sprite looks so much like Aletha, and I know she would have been honored. If you download this digi for yourself, please be sure to give a huge "

Changes

Greetings! I don't have a project to share with you today, but rather, an announcement. I have decided to completely revamp my blog, and move it to a new site. I've been blogging at 21st Century Pillow Book for over 10 years now, and it's been wonderful. But the "Pillow Book" aspect got lost somewhere along the way. If you don't know what that is, read my description in the blog header, or do a quick search. They are really very cool. Anyway, I thought it was due time for me to work on a new blog, more of a brand, etc. So, I invite you to now join me over at alisonheikkila.com . I've still got some polishing up to do, and a whole lot of learning, as WordPress is completely different from Blogger, but I am really excited for this new site. I've wanted to do this for a long time, and I am happy to finally be getting it done. Bear with me as I figure out the best way to make it all look and flow. I thankfully have some help with that. But I think you
