Umbrella Ride with House Mouse


Hello! Are you enjoying all of the fabulous House Mouse and Friends posts that have been going up this week? What wonderful, happy projects! For full details on the hop, plus the fabulous prizes that are up for grabs, please visit the House Mouse & Friends blog.

Directions:
1. Stamp Umbrella Ride House Mouse with Versafine ink in Onyx Black. Color with Tombow Dual Brush Markers as listed above. Fussy cut. 
2. Die cut Winter Lake cardstock from My Colors with the 4 1/2" x 3" Fitted Frame. Take the Picasso tool and place it near the top of the die cut. Apply a small amount of acrylic paint to your stencil brush, and rub off excess on to a paper towel. In a circular motion, apply the paint to the cloud portion of the stencil to the die cut. Move the tool around the entire die cut to complete the cloud background. 
3. Die cut the 1 1/2" x 1" Fitted Frame in Loveable cardstock. Stamp with sentiment from the Spring Sentiments set and emboss with Detail Black embossing powder. Edge the die cut with Versamark and emboss with Sparkle Blue from the Spring Sparkle Embossing Kit. 
4. For the card base, cut Pollen from Bazzil to 5 1/2" x 8" and fold in half. Tape Quatrefoil stencil to the card base, and with a sponge dauber, apply Dandelion Memento Ink to the outer edges of the card. You don't need to do the center because the large Fitted Frame will be there. Work quicky so that the ink doesn't dry completely, and apply Clear Lemon from the Summer Shine Kit. You do not need to have full coverage.
5. Attach all pieces except for the House Mouse with a flat adhesive. Use foam tape from Tombow to attach the mouse.

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 "
