Go Climb a Tree with Stampendous!

Hello! The Stampendous team has been inspiring you all week to go out and climb trees...or at least to craft with trees as the subject. I have a really fun card to share with you today.


I started off with the inside of the card for this piece...but I'll share the outside with you first. I made the sentiment using 3 different stamps from the Discover Today Perfectly Clear set. Then I added the little icons from the Charmed Art set. I inked the edges and added it to some leftover scraps I had distressed and added to my card base. Now for the inside.....

How fun is this?! I used the super cool Pop Up Die set along with the Cling Pop Up Forest Stamp set and the coordinating Dies. I also used a grass stamp from the brand new Cling Create Fall set on the bottom half of the card.

I stamped out all of my images on watercolor paper and started to watercolor them in. After I was done, I used the die set to quickly and (really!) easily cut out all of the pieces. I was grateful that I didn't have to fussy cut all of these parts. Then I started to assemble my tree.

You can see here why the Pop Up Die set is so cool. It creates tabs for you to easily make your cards have fantastic dimension. There's also an extra little nifty gadget that I added to my card. I made a short video to show you...because pictures don't do it justice.


HERE is my video.

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 "
