Floral Trumpet

Hello! This week, the Stampendous team is sharing projects using images from the adorable House Mouse collection. These images have been featured in our October and January catalogs. My card today is packed with lots of sparkle and shine. I used Floral Trumpet as my focal image.

Supplies:
Stampendous:
HMV32: Floral Trumpet
SSCM5003: House Mouse Friend Wishes
FMS4057: Lace Metal Stencil
TP121: Vintage Pink Tinsel
TP11: Vintage Plum Tinsel
MPW811: Mixed Media White Paper
STF082- VersaFine Onyx Black Ink
VM001: VersaMark Watermark Ink
HT400: Embossing Heat Tool

Other:
Tombow Dual Brush Markers: 158, 192, 723, 725, 757, 850, 947, 977, 990, 992
My Colors Cardstock: Pink, Pink Delight
Imagine: Rose Bud Memento, Sponge Dauber
K & Co.: Chalk
Adorn It!: Ribbon
Staples: Tag

Directions:
1. Stamp the image on to Mixed Media Paper with VersaFine ink.

2. Color using the markers listed above. Crop and color the background with blue chalk.

3. Make a mat of Pink Delight cardstock to go around the cropped House Mouse.

4. Create the card base from Pink cardstock and cut to the size of 5 1/2" x 8."

5. Sprinkle Vintage Pink Tinsel around the edges of the card (cover most of the card), and heat from underneath.

6. Tape the Lace stencil to the tag, and using a sponge dauber, apply VersaMark ink all over. Remove and wash stencil.

7. Sprinkle Vintage Plum on top. Remove excess, and heat from underneath.

8. Tie ribbon to the tag.

9. Stamp a sentiment from the Friend Wishes set with VersaFine ink on to Pink Delight cardstock.

10. Crop and tear the top edge. Ink the ripped edge with Rose Bud Memento ink.

11. Adhere all pieces to the card base using Zip Dry Glue. I kept my Pink Delight mat at an angle from the colored image. I also tacked the ribbon down so that it didn't hang off of the card.

Hey, Alison. I thought I'd come back and tell you how cute this House Mouse card is. I am ordering this image and this gives me great inspiration. I don't own many and I really wished I had some of the older ones. I won 20.00 from Stampendous so I am getting several of the cling rubber stamps. They are so cute.

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
