First Look: April Club Kit with ADfD

Hello! Happy April! I am really excited to share a first look at the new April Club Kit with A Day for Daises. Wedding season is almost upon us, (in fact, I have a wedding to go to this month!) so what is more fitting than a beautiful set of bride images? These ladies are all so lovely, I'm sure you'll love them. Today, I used Vintage Bride Veil.

I colored this image with my Tombow Dual Brush markers. I think she looks so regal that I didn't want to add too much "fluff" to the rest of the card. Here's a close up.

I did think the card needed some sparkle and shine, so I broke out Imagine Crafts' irRESISTables Pico Embellisher in Wedding Dress and Shimmer. I added Shimmer Dots on the image layer, and Wedding Dress on the metallic cardstock. I also added some of each in the corners of the right side of the card. I also spritzed some Sheer Shimmer spray on my card base. The photo below shows some of the sparkle.

You can click on the photo to see it bigger. It's always so tough to capture sparkle on camera. I added some pretty damask washi tape as well. Please be sure to visit the rest of the A Day for Daisies team to see what they created with the new April Club it. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

I love that image! Just beautiful, and I love the taupey-metallic color you used for the background. Very elegant and vintage.

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 "
