Bunny Splash!

Greetings! I have a card to share with you today that features Bunny Splash! and a couple of wonderful Dreamweaver Stencils. 


Supplies:

Stampendous:
Q220 Bunny Splash
SSH34 Medium Perfectly Clear™ Acrylic Handle
DWNHB12 1/2″ Brush #12
MPW811 Mixed Media Paper
MEM01 Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink by Tsukineko®
Dreamweaver:
DWLJ908 Umbrella Background Stencil
DWLJ905 Rain Stencil
Plus:
Cardstock by Bazzill Basics Paper®
Chameleon™ Markers (RD4, GR3, BL3, CG8, PK3)
Labels 4 Dies by Spellbinder™ Paper Arts
Acrylic Paint by DecoArt®
Ribbon by May ArtsZip Dry™ Paper Glue by Beacon Adhesives

Instructions:
  1. The image was stamped on to Mixed Media Paper using Memento Ink. One of the Labels 4 die was used to cut the image out. It was then inked around the edges with turquoise ink.
  2. Die cut the next size up of the Labels 4 die in red.
  3. Temporarily mount the Umbrella Background stencil on to Mixed Media paper. Load your stencil brush with yellow acrylic paint, then rub most of it out on to a paper towel. This will allow you to do a dry brush technique on your paper, and will prevent the paint from seeping under the stencil. It is really important to remove most of the paint from the brush. You can always layer more, but you can’t remove what you’ve put down. When you are happy with the yellow layer, apply some green to only some areas using the same dry brush technique. Once the paint has dried, round the corners.
  4. Create your card base using a dark green cardstock. Cut to 6 1/2″ x 10″ and fold in half.
  5. Cut a mat out of turquoise cardstock. Use dark turquoise paint to apply the Rain Stencil in a similar manner as you did the Umbrella Background.
  6. Glue all layers and add a small piece of chevron ribbon.

So sweet! This adorable card reminds me of a fun day with my granddaughter a few weeks ago. We have puddles in our driveway that rival most ponds when it rains and Jenna always wants to jump in them. One day I had her wear her rubber boots when we went to get mail and on the way back up the driveway I walked right through a puddle. She looked at me like I was crazy but when I told her SHE could also walk through the puddle her face lit up so bright that I needed sunglasses! She still talks about it! So glad I made the time to create this memory for her!
LOVE your card! TFS!

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
