Poe Poetry: Day 19 of 31

Greetings, my ghoulish friends! Today is Day 19 of the 31 Days of Halloween. Many of us Halloween fanatics are also big fans of Edgar Allan Poe. For my project today, I am using a Stampendous stamp called Poe Poetry, so many of you will probably really dig it. Below is my full tutorial on how to create this card.

R294: Poe Poetry Stamp
EP215: Hematite Embossing Powder

Imagine: VersaFine Ink in Onyx Black, irRESISTable Spray in Love Letter and Wedding Dress, VersaMark Ink
Beacon Adhesives: Zip Dry Glue
Red & Kraft Colored Cardstock

1. Stamp Poe Poetry with VersaFine ink on to Kraft colored cardstock.

2. Crop the image.

3. Unscrew the spritzer of the Love Letter irRESISTable bottle and use the straw to apply some of the liquid across the top of the image. Allow it to drip down a little and let dry.

4. Open the Wedding Dress irRESISTable in the same way and use the straw to apply dots of white all over the card. Be sure to shake the bottle first.

5. Create the card base while the white is drying. Make it out of red cardstock cut to 5 1/2" x 8."

6. Apply VersaMark ink to2 adjoining sides of the card base, sprinkle with Hematite Embossig Powder and heat set.

7. repeat Step 6 on the other 2 sides.

8. Glue the stamped layer to the card base with Zip Dry glue.

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 "thank…

April Sparkle Blends Release Hop

Hello! Welcome back! And if you're new here, my name is Alison, and I appreciate you visiting me. Today is a big day, because Doodles Paper Playground is having their April Sparkle Blends Release Hop. This month, 6 brand new Sparkle Blends have come out to join the party, and the Doodles Paper Playground Divas are joined by several very special Guest Designers. So sit back and enjoy all of the wonderful projects we have to share with you. There are prizes to be won along the way too!
My card today features the beautiful new "Diamond" Sparkle Blend which is filled with lovely clear, opalescent clear, and moonshine sequins. There are different sizes, shapes, and styles in the Blend, so even thought it is all technically "clear," it is full of interest. This mix is perfect for the style of shaker I did today, which has a colored focal image in the background. The clear sequins sparkles, but doesn't hide the background. It just adds some magic. I used, what ver…

Arnold Grummer and Stampendous Collaboration Part 1

Hello! This is an exciting post for me because I am part of a 2 week "Earth Day" blog hop between Stampendous and Arnold Grummer. If you have visited my blog before, you know how much I already love Stampendous. But Arnold Grummer was new to me. They make paper making supplies. This is something I have never done before. And truthfully, I was never interested in doing. I thought it was so much work to make one sheet of paper, it would take all day, etc. But, when I was asked if I wanted to be a part of this hop, I thought about it and decided that I love trying new crafts, so I should give it a shot. And guess what? I had a blast! My daughter (who is 10) and I decided to tackle this project together, and we came up with 4 beautiful sheets of paper in just over an hour.
 I think that once we play with the process a little more, and organize the flow of our work space, we could probably make the sheets a little faster, but I was really happy with what we accomplished in a pret…
