Sweet of You Frond and Vase

Hello out there! This week, the Stampendous team has been sharing projects for "A Season of Thanks." Today, we all wanted to thank YOU, the Stampendous customer! To show our appreciation, we have created many different thank you cards. My full instructions are below.

Supplies:
Stampendous:
RS-H328- Sweet of You Stamp
DWLM2006- Small Fern Frond Metal Stencil
DWLM196- Tall Vase Metal Stencil
DWDGP- Gold Embossing Paste
DWLM2010- Paste Spreader
DWDPK- Palette Knife
DWNHB-9- 3/8" Stencil Brush
DCP1006- Fitted Frames Set B
MPW811- Mixed Media White Paper

Other:
My Colors Cardstock- Madras Blue
Imagine- Memento Ink in Summer Sky, Ink Blushers, StazOn in Spiced Chai, Kalediacolor in Fresh Greens, Memento Marker in Potter's Clay, Delicata Ink in Golden Glitz
Beacon Adhesieves- Zip Dry Glue
Eyelets
Vellum


Directions:
1. On Mixed Media White Paper, tape down the vase stencil and emboss with Gold Embossing Paste using the Palette Knife and the Paste Spreader.

2. Once the paste has dried, tape the fern to the top of the vase and add color with the Stencil Brush using the middle color in the Fresh Greens Kaleidacolor ink set. Use the darker tones as you work your way out on to the fern's tips.

3. Flip the stencil to the other side (be sure to clean the stencil first!) to have the image face the other direction and to create more visual interest. Repeat the coloring process.

4. Add a third fern leaf to the vase.

5. Crop the image.

6. Dip an Ink Blusher into Summer Sky Memento Ink and buff the color around the edge of the cardstock.

7. Using Spiced Chai StazOn, stamp the Sweet of You stamp on to a piece of vellum.

8. Die cut the image with the small "H" Fitted Frame.

9. Attach the vellum to the vase with eyelets as shown in the photo.

10. Create the card base out of Madras Blue cardstock, cut to 6 1/2" x 10."

11. Using Potter's Clay Memento Marker, color in just the 'thank you" of the Sweet of You stamp.

12. Stamp the "thank you" up each side of the card base, recoloring the words after each impression.

13. Ink the edges of the card base with Golden Glitz Delicata ink.

14. Glue the layer with the vase to the card base.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Your stenciling and stamping are beautiful in those fabulously jewel-like earth tones! Love the shading in your ferns, and the border around your masterpiece. Gorgeous card, right down to the vellum sentiment.
Thank you another great inspirational card.
Great card! I love the way you stamped "thank you" on each side like a border.

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
