Polar Bear Play

Hello! I have found recently that I truly misses playing along with challenges, and since then I am so happy to have found the Simon Says Stamp Monday and Wednesday challenges. The Design Teams are so incredibly talented, and the challenges are always super inspiring. The current Wednesday challenge is "Snow White."  I immediately thought of this sweet little polar bear family from Stampendous. My full instructions are below.

Q233: Polar Bear Play
DCP1005: Fitted Frame Set A
FRG10C: Shaved Ice
FRGL01: Multi Crystal Glitter Mix
EP231: Lapis PEARLustre Embossing Powder
FX71: Sticky Panels
MPW811: Mixed Media White Paper

My Colors Cardstock: Velvet Night
Creative Impressions: 1/4" Pastel Blue Glimmer Ribbon- #70263
Imagine: VersaFine Ink in Onyx Black, VersaMark Ink Pad
Zig Clean Color Markers: 034,035, 099, 302
Kukoyo: Adhesive Dot Runner
Canson: Mixed Media Paper

1. Stamp Polar Bear Play on to Canson Mixed Media Paper with VersaFine Ink.

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

3. Die cut the image out with the Large "Q" die from the Fitted Frames Set A.

4. Apply Sticky Panels to Stampendous Mixed Media Paper and die cut using the Small "W" Fitted Frame.

5. Peel top of the Sticky Panels, center and apply polar bear image.

6. Pour Shaved Ice on top of the exposed Sticky Panel. Shake off excess.

7. Pour Multi Crystal Glitter Mix to the same area, to fill in the gaps of the Shaved Ice.

8. Create the card base with Velvet Night cardstock, cut to the size of 5 1/2" x 8."

9. Apply VersaMark ink to the edges of the card base.

10. Sprinkle Lapis embossing powder on to the perimeter of the card and heat set.

11. Adhere the Polar Bears to the top of the card, leaving plenty of room for ribbon.

12. Apply 2 rows of Pastel Blue Glimmer Ribbon to the bottom of the card.

That's it for me today. Tomorrow I have a fun tutorial I created with my daughter. So if you've got kids, please come back to see it. Thanks 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

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Hop

This is a very exciting week for the Stampendous team! We are hanging out with the ultra cool Deco Art Mixed Media team, each using each other's products to share some incredible creations with you. These companies go hand in hand, so using each other's products is easy. And the results are amazing. We are of course featuring Andy Skinner's stamps, who is the DecoArt International Education Coordinator.  And yup, there are prizes! But I want you to go to the Stampendous Blog for all of that info. The link is at the bottom of the post. Now, on to my project. I made a cool wall hanging today. I started off with a piece of MDF and I drilled 2 holes, and covered it with DecoArt's white Gesso. After it dried, I used Andy's Alcohol and Media fluid Acrylics Layering Technique. You can check out his how-to video HERE . Needless to say, it's a great technique, and I loved doing it. Once I finished with the aforementioned technique, I sealed the piece w


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 . 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
