Love Flourishes

The Stampendous theme has been sharing all sorts of Valentine's Day projects with you this week, and today we are featuring Dreamweaver Stencils within that theme. 

Supplies:

Plus:Cardstock by Bazzill Basics Paper®, Prism, Core’dinations
Brown Memento Ink by Tsukineko
Zip Dry™ Paper Glue by Beacon Adhesives

Instructions:
  1. Take pale blue cardstock and tape Large Flourish stencil on all sides to keep it from moving and to keep your space clean. Apply a thick glob of Glossy White Embossing Paste to one side of paste spreader using the palette knife, and then hold the Paste Spreader at a 45 degree angle, and drag it across the paste and over the stencil. Remove the stencil carefully and let dry.
    2. Cut out a mat of chocolate brown cardstock. Sprinkle Shabby Blue embossing powder from the Blue encrusted Jewel Kit on to one of the short sides, and heat from underneath to melt. Repeat on the other short side.
    3. Cut out card base in a latte color to the dimensions of 6 1/2″ x 10.” Fold in half.
    4. Choose a sentiment from the Love Always Perfectly Clear Set and stamp using brown ink. Glue all layers together.

Below are the ladies that are posting along with me today. Enjoy! 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
