Patty PopOns and Stampendous!


Hello! This week, the Stampendous team has been stamping and stenciling on Patty PopOns Puzzle pieces. I have a sheet of these fun little, velcro backed pieces. 4 rows of 3 pieces. So I decided to make each row a different season. Today I am sharing a piece from the Fall row. But I decided to include my kids in this project, so my daughter created a Winter piece, and my son created one for Spring. Here's mine.

I used 3 alcohol markers and the Hexagons stencil to create my background. Then I used Glossy Black Embossing Paste for my Spider.

After it dried, I used the Peeled Paint stamp from Andy Skinner's Industrial set with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I then inked the 2 outer edges of the puzzle piece.

Here is my little girl working hard on her puzzle. She's stamping snowflakes with VersaCraft ink.

She used the adorable Build a Snowman set. The present is from the Holiday Expressions set. She colored the whole thing using Prismacolor markers and one Copic (the background color).

And of course, since she is my child...she used lots of glitter. All from Stampendous. Pretty darn good for an almost 7 year old, huh?

Here's my son, creating his masterpiece. Haha! Master Piece! See what I did there?

He fell in love with the Lotus flower, and immediately wanted it to be pink with a green center. He opted to add some purple to add a bit more interest. He applied various Memento ink colors with sponge daubers. The Dandelion yellow he applied directly from the pad, because he used the Dew Drop pad. He was able to get right in between the petals because of the fabulous shape of the ink pad.

And, because he is also my child, lots more glitter was used. He applied Versamark all over the puzzle piece, then Stamp 'N Bond, and then Crystal Glitter on top of the heated Stamp 'N Bond. Talk about sparkle! Below are all of the ladies that are posting today. Please be sure to check out all of their amazing projects! 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

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Hop

This is a very exciting week for the Stampendous team! We are hanging out with the ultra cool Deco Art Mixed Media team, each using each other's products to share some incredible creations with you. These companies go hand in hand, so using each other's products is easy. And the results are amazing. We are of course featuring Andy Skinner's stamps, who is the DecoArt International Education Coordinator.  And yup, there are prizes! But I want you to go to the Stampendous Blog for all of that info. The link is at the bottom of the post. Now, on to my project. I made a cool wall hanging today. I started off with a piece of MDF and I drilled 2 holes, and covered it with DecoArt's white Gesso. After it dried, I used Andy's Alcohol and Media fluid Acrylics Layering Technique. You can check out his how-to video HERE . Needless to say, it's a great technique, and I loved doing it. Once I finished with the aforementioned technique, I sealed the piece w

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 "
