Foxy Neons with Stampendous and Imagine Crafts

Hello! This is going to be an exciting week in Bloggy Land. The Stampendous team is collaborating with Imagine Crafts! I am stoke about this because now, I am on both of those teams...so I hope that I do both companies justice. Today's project features the fox from the new Woodland Creatures stamp set, the Chevron stencil from Dreamweaver, and Radiant Neon reinkers.


Directions: 
1. Stamp fox with Memento Ink. Use Chameleon Pens in the colors Listed above to color in the image. Use coordinating dies to cut out the fox.  
2. Create a monoprinted background using the reinkers from Imagine Crafts and the Creative Palette. Squirt the 3 colors of reinkers  on to the Creative Palette and roll out with a brayer. Press the inked palette on to Mixed Media Paper. You can make several impressions, or monoprints, by rolling the brayer over the ink each time. More information on this is available here: http://www.stampendous.com/tips-techniques/creative-palette-tips-tricks/ 
3. Tape the Chevron Background stencil to the monoprint, and use a stencil brush to apply the Electric Purple ink to the monoprint. Remove the stencil, and emboss the inked areas with Clear Lavender embossing powder from the Summer Shine kit. Trim the monoprint. 
4. Create the card base from Winter Lake and cut to 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and fold. 
5. Cut the 2" x 1/2" Fitted Frame out of Mixed Media Paper and stamp "Hello Sunshine" sentiment from the Spring Sentiments set. Ink the edges with the Electric Purple ink. 
6. Die cut the Bobbler from the POP'cessories set out of Mixed Media Paper and attach to the fox with Craft Glue Dots. Glue the rest of the card together using the Glue Dots.  

Here you can see the batch of monoprints that I made. I used the second print (on the left) for today's card. 


This shot shows you the shine from the embossing powder on my Chevron design. You can also sort of see the dimension of the head popping away from the body.


Here's a shot of what the coil looks like from the POP'cessories. This new die set helps you create 3D projects so easily!

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 "thank…

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'…

Day 1 of 31 Days: Come as You Aren't

Greetings! It's officially the most wonderful time of the year! Today is Day 1 of the 31 Days of Halloween. I have participated in every 31 Days (what are we at? Year 5?) and I am so excited to be doing it again. For my first project. I use a bunch of Stampendous' newest Halloween images.


I started off with the fantastic witch label from the Halloween Labels Cling and Die Set and colored it with Zig Clean Color Markers. I then stamped the spiderweb and a spider from the Spider Fear set and embossed with with Star Dust embossing powder.

I created my card base out of Sweet Potato cardstock and stenciled the Swirls Stencil with Gray Flannel Memento ink. I didn't make it solid, rather I wanted the stenciled image to fade in and out of the background. Then I inked up the bottom edge of the card base with VersaMark ink and then heat embossed Marcastie Embossing Powder on top. The card needed a little something further, so I stamped a sentiment from the Spooky Wishes set on to ve…
