Poppy Fields and Window Panes

Hello! This week, the Stampendous team is going to be sharing some great projects featuring florals and foliage. It's easy to make a greeting card for any occasion (or lack thereof) if you have some pretty flowers and perhaps a good sentiment. Today, I didn't use a sentiment, but my card doesn't really need one. 


Supplies:
Stampendous:
R262: Poppy Fields
DWLJ811: Jumbo Tile Stencil
DWDGWP: Glossy White Embossing Paste
FRGL01: Multi Crystal Glitter Mix
DWDPK: Palette Knife
Acrylic Stamp HandleVM001: VersaMark Watermark Ink PadDP111: Detail Black Embossing Powder

Others:
My Colors Cardstock: Banana Pepper, Tropical Splash
Deco Art: Media Fluid Acrylics in Prussian Blue
Artist's Loft: Watercolor Paints, Watercolor Paper
Beacon Adhesives: Zip Dry
Craft Mat



Directions:
1. Stamp image on to watercolor paper using VersaMark Ink, and heat emboss with Detail Black Embossing Powder. Paint with watercolor paints, let dry, and trim. 

2. Make a mat for the image using Banana Pepper cardstock and glue with Zip Dry.

3. Make the card base with Tropical Splash cardstock, and cut to 10" x 6 1/2." 

4. Attach the Jumbo Tile Stencil to the card base with some tape. Spread some Glossy White Embossing Paste on to a craft mat and add 1 drop of Pussian Blue Fluid Acrylic paint and mix, but do not over mix.Keep the color marbleized. Spread the colored paste on to the stencil and card base, but keep it slightly messy. Have some texture and and incomplete coverage. Sprinkle Multi Crystal Glitter Mix into the wet paste and let dry.

5. Attach the image and mat layers to the card base.

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
