Succulent Pitcher and Houndstooth

Hello! This week, the Stampendous team is sharing project that "Contain Spring!" Meaning, flowers and succulents in all types of containers. I happen to love succulents, so I was really into this Succulent Pitcher stamp from the October catalog. And I paired it with my favorite stencil...the Houndstooth. Below are the directions on making this card. 
Supplies:
Stampendous:
V330: Succulent Pitcher
DWLJ913: Houndstooth Stencil
SSC1263: Campground Stamp Set
DCP1005: Fitted Frames Set A
DWDGWP: Glossy White Embossing Paste
DWDPK: Palette Knife
DWLM2010: Paste Spreader
MPW811: Mixed Media Paper
STF082: VersaFine- Onyx Black

Other:
My Colors Cardstock: Winter Lake
Imagine: Denim Kaleidacolor, Ink Potion No. 9, London Fog Memento Ink, Night Sky VersaMagic Ink
Zig Clean Color Markers: 038, 047, 048, 068, 072
Beacon Adhesives: Zip Dry Glue
Recollections: Brayer


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

2. Color the image using the above mentioned Zig Clean Color Markers and fussy cut the image.

3. Click Denim Kaleideacolor ink pads together, roll on to a brayer, and spritz the brayer with Ink Potion No. 9 to encourage the migration of colors and to keep them wet longer.

4. Roll brayer on to Mixed Media Paper to slightly larger than the Houndstooth stencil. Let dry.

5. Tape Housndtooth stencil on to dried paper and apply Glossy White Embossing Paste using the Palette Knife and Paste Spreader. Let dry.

6. Using the large "L" Fitted Frame, cut another piece of Mixed Media Paper. Stamp the "enjoy life" sentiment from the Campground stamp set using Onyx Black VersaFine.

7. Lightly stencil the Houndstooth stencil on to the sentiment die cut using London Fog Memento.

8. Create the card base out of Winter Lake cardstock. Cut to 5 1/2" x 8."

9. Apply Night Sky VersaMagic ink around the edges of the card base.

10. Glue the layers using Zip Dry Glue.

Thanks for checking out my tutorial today. 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
