Blooming Globe

Hello! This week, the Stampendous Design Team has been sharing projects from the brand new October Catalog. I am loving so many of these stamps, and I hope that you do too! Today's project features the Blooming Globe stamp, coincidentally, with another type of rainbow background (did you see my post on Monday?). I guess I'm getting all of these bright, cheery colors out of my system before the 31 Days of Halloween begins in a few days! Check out my directions on how to recreate this card yourself below.


Supplies:
Stampendous:
P314: Blooming Globe
SSC1272: Brushed Wishes
DP100: Detail White Embossing Powder

Other:
My Colors Cardstock: Yellow Corn
Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers: 022, 023, 026, 027, 029, 030, 032, 040, 041, 045, 047, 050, 051, 052, 081, 082, 083, 084, 090, 099, 200, 202, 220, 222, 302, 803
Imagine: VersaFine Ink: Onyx Black, VersaMark Ink
Ranger: Distress Oxide Inks in: Picked Raspberry, Wild Honey, Lucky Clover, Salty Ocean, Wilted Violet, Ink Blending Tools
Canson: Mixed Media Paper
Strathmore: Smooth Bristol Paper
Scrapbook Adhesives: Tape Runner
Water Spritzer Bottle


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

2. Color the image with the Zig Clean Color Markers indicated.

3. Cut the image out. I chose to leave a white border around it.

4. Cut a piece of Smooth Bristol Paper to the size of 5 1/4" x 3 3/4."

5. Using Ink Blending Tools, swipe each of the Distress Oxides across the Bristol Paper in a horizontal line, in rainbow order.

6. Blend the colors as necessary to get a fully blended rainbow.

7. Spritz the Distress Oxides with water to get them to react. Blot off excess water after letting it sit for a minute or two to get lighter colors. Let dry completely.

8. Create the card base out of Yellow Corn cardstock, cut to the size of 5 1/2" x 8."

9. Temporarily place the Blooming Globe on the Oxide background to figure out placement for the sentiment.

10. Stamp the sentiment with VersaMark ink and heat emboss with Detail White Embossing Powder.

11. Attach the Blooming Globe to the background, and the background to the card base.

I hope you enjoyed the previews this week. If you missed any posts, please visit the Stampendous Blog for all of the links. Thanks so much 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
