Day 14 of the 31 Days of Halloween

Hello! Can you believe that we are halfway through the month already? I can't. It's Day 14 of the 31 Days of Halloween, and today I am sharing a card that is chock full of Stampendous goodies, and a few from Imagine as well!

I started off by rolling out Vineyard Kaleidacolor from Imagine with my brayer and a few spritzes of Ink Potion No. 9 to get the ink to flow better. Once I was happy with the background, I hit it with my heat tool to speed up drying time. Then I stamped Skeleton Lady from Stampendous with VersaMark ink, sprinkled some Detail Black embossing powder on top and heat set it.

After that, I stamped the Scrollwork Leaves around the edges. Then I embossed them with Twilight embossing powder. That powder really sparkles beautifully! Last on this layer, I spritzed some Desert Sand irRESISTable Spay. It adds some great texture and a bit of shine. On my card base, I sprinkled Aged Black embossing powder on the horizontal sides, and Seasonings powder on the vertical.

I love all the different colors and textures that are on this card. And the Skeleton Lady makes the whole thing super creepy. Tomorrow, I'll have another card using this Vineyard Kaleidacolor, but it will look totally different. Don't forget to visit the rest of the wicked Bloggers, they're all listed on my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a creeptastic day!

I would frame this one and leave it up year round. Pretty and macabre-what a perfect combination. I need to check out some of your other supplies-your background technique has me fascinated.

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
