A Tri-fecta of Cards

Happy Friday! Today, I have 3 cards to share with you. Two of them are for the new Desert Islands Crafters Challenge, and the other is for the new Dilly Beans Challenge. Let's begin with DICC. I am happy to announce that Smeared Ink is our sponsor for the week, and you could win their awesome Heart Wings digi set! I've used a few images from that set in my cards.
Here's the Itinerary that I came up with for this latest challenge.

1. Heart(s)
2. Wings
3. Glitter
4. Doilie
5. Loving Sentiment
6. At Least 3 Patterned Papers
7. Smeared Ink Stamps
8. Lots of Texture
9. Metal Accents
10. Distressing


I made this card for Phoenix for Valentine's Day. I used #'s 1, 2, 3, 7, 8, 9, and 10. The Heart Wings set is really a blast to play with.

I hope you can see the glitter on the wings. I also popped up the image with foam.

He loved his card! The next one I made was for Rhiannon. I used the same numbers off of the itinerary.

Lots of hearts on her card! My girl does love hearts!

Here you can really see the glitter on the wings.

This week over at Dilly Beans, we needed to create something with Red and Black.

I love these little penguins! I thought they would look really "cool" in just these colors.

I love red, black and white together, o this was a fun challenge too!

I hope you will play along with both of these challenges. And please be sure to visit both of the challenge blogs to see what the rest of the DT's have come up with. 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
