Greetings! This week the Stampendous team is sharing some of our newest stamps! More specifically, our newest Christmas stamps! You'll see some stencils and other goodies thrown in too, but wait until you get a load of how great these new items are. You are going to want to start making holiday cards right away!

Directions:
1. Stamp the Snowman Tree stamp on to Mixed Media Paper with Onyx Black VersaFine Ink. Using watercolors, paint the snowman, tree, and snow. Apply Red Class-A-Peels to the tree where the ornaments are. Cut out.

2. Using the small "N" from the Fitted Frames Set A, cut out a piece of Deep Indigo. Create a pattern using the circle stamps from the Mushrooms set and VersaMark ink. Emboss with Sparkle Puff.

3. Cut the large "N" from the Fitted Frames Set A out of a green cardstock and ink the edges with Golden Glitz Delicata Ink.

4. Make the card base out of Sky cardstock and cut to 5 1/2" x 8." Ink the edges with VersaMark ink and emboss with Shabby Blue. I recommend doing no more than 2 sides at a time. Heat from underneath.

5. Cut a piece of ribbon to fit across the top of the card, and cut a separate piece to make a bow. Glue down with Zip Dry glue. Stamp sentiment directly on to the card base with Onyx Black.

6. Adhere all layers with Zip Dry.

Here are the other Stampendous gals posting today. 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
