Spooky with Imagine: Day 21 of 31

Greetings! Welcome to Day 21 of the 31 Days of Halloween. It's no secret that Halloween is my absolute favorite time of the year, and when I'm crafting or decorating for this very special season (a day is just not long enough!), I like to make things that are creepy. I don't do the full on gore, and I try not to go super cutsie. I prefer to be a little off-putting and eerie, and I think my card today shows that. Here's a full tutorial.

Supplies:
Imagine:
Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Sparkle
Vertigo in Tilted
StazOn in Claret & Jet Black
irRESISTable in Love Letter
Memento in Tuxedo Black

Other:
EK Success Jack O Lantern layer punch
Stampendous Fitted Frames Set B
Xyron: Creative Station
Scrapbook Adhesieves: Foam Squares
May Arts Ribbon
Inkadinkado Halloween sentiment stamp
Gray and orange cardstock
White card base

Directions:

1. Punch 2 layers of the pumpkin. I did a reverse on the colors to add some additional visual interest, so my base pumpkin is orange, and the top layer is black. Spritz the orange layer with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Sparkle.

2. Die cut Tilted Vertigo using the large "M" Fitted Frame. Die cut a mat in gray using the small "P" Fitted Frame. Ink the edges of the Vertigo with Claret StazOn.

3. Trim a light gray mat to fit on your card base. Spray the outer edges of the mat with Love Letter irRESISTable and let dry. I love how this looks like drops of blood!

4. Place all of the pieces o your card base to determine where you'd like your sentiment to go. Once you've determined the placement, stamp the sentiment with StazOn in Jet Black.

5. Ink the gray die cut mat and the card base with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.

6. Glue all of the pieces except the pumpkin with your favorite glue. I used Xyron's Creative Station for most of it. Use black foam squares to pop up the pumpkin. Slide the ribbon underneath and add more black foam squares (trimmed down) to adhere the ribbon in a wavy, 3D design.


There you have it! A kinda creepy Halloween card using lots of fabulous Imagine products.

Skill Level: Easy
Time to Create: 20 Minutes, plus drying time

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
