Birdie Trio with Stencils

Greetings! This week, the Stampendous team has been sharing some of our favorite new projects from the July 2016 catalog. The card I'm sharing with you today took a lot of time because it has many layers, but I love it. It features the new Birdie Trio stamp, and lots of fabulous Dreamweaver Stencils.

Beacon Adhesives: Zip Dry


Directions:
1. Stamp the Birdie Trio on to Mixed Media Paper using Onyx Black Versafine Ink. Color, using the Memento Markers listed above. Cut out, leaving a thin white border around the image.

2. Using Lilac Mist cardstock, tape the small Cathedral Windows stencil down and apply Pearlescent Embossing Paste with a palette knife. Let this dry completely, and then use the small "P" Fitted frame to die cut the stenciled background. Apply Sparkle Puff to the bottom to create a small snow bank the that birds will sit on. Heat set.

3. Create the card base out of Winter Lake cardstock, and make the dimensions 5 1/2" x 8." Tape the Brick Stencil to one side of the card base, and using a stencil brush, apply some Tea Leaves Versa Magic sporadically on the card base. Don't go for complete coverage. Move the stencil over to do the rest of the card. Repeat until the card has bricks randomly all over it. Sprinkle Clear Lime Embossing Powder from the Summer Shine Kit too the inked bricks. Heat set. Leave off to the side.

4. Cut a 2" x 4" strip of Coral Rose cardstock. Using the Graduated Dot stencil, ink the strip with Versamark ink. Heat emboss with Clear Pink powder from the Summer Shine Kit.

5. Cut a piece of Ocean Side cardstock that is 1 3/4" wide to fit the Large "P" Fitted Frame and die cut. Glue to the right side of the Lilac Mist Layer.

6. Assemble the rest of the card using Zip Dry glue.

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
