Poinsettia Pattern

Seasons Greetings! This week, the Stampendous Design Team is sharing project with a "Merry and Bright" theme. Think lots of glitter, holiday cheer, and lots of red & green.  My card for today is pretty encrusted with the beautiful Twinkle Glitter from Stampendous. The shine in real life is holographic and beautiful! My full instructions to recreate this card is below.


Supplies:
Stampendous:
FMS4081: Poinsettia Pattern Stencil
SSC1267: Poinsettia Wishes
FRGL02: Twinkle Glitter
DWDGWP: Glossy White Embossing Paste
DWDPK: Palette Knife
DWLM2010: Paste Spreader
DP100: Detail White Embossing Powder
DCP1006: Fitted Frames Set B
MPW811: Mixed Media White Paper

Other:
My Colors Cardstock: Evergreen
DecoArt Media: Cadmium Red Hue
Imagine: VersaMark Ink, On Point Glue, Tear It Tape, Craft Mat
Scotch ATG Gun

Directions:
1. Tape the Poinsettia Pattern Stencil to a piece of Mixed Media White Paper.

2. On a Craft Mat, scoop out a small amount Glossy White Embossing Paste and 1-2 drops of Cadmium Red Hue.

3. Using the Palette Knife, mix the paste and paint together, but not completely. Leave it marbleized.

4. Apply the tinted paste to the stencil and paper by spreading it across the top at a 45 degree angle with the Paste Spreader.

5. Remove and clean the stencil. Let paste dry and trim the image, leaving a border.

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

7. Using a scrap piece of Evergreen cardstock, stamp the Christmas sentiment on the BACK of the textured cardstock using VersaMark ink.

8. Sprinkle on Detail White Embossing Powder and heat set.

9. Using the Large "H" Fitted Frame, die cut the sentiment.

10. On the stenciled layer, apply a line of On Point Glue all around the perimeter. Sprinkle with Twinkle Glitter.

11. On the card base, apply a line of Tear It Tape across the bottom of the card and across the right side.

12. Sprinkle with Twinkle Glitter.

13. Apply a line of On Point Glue around the edge of the die cut sentiment and apply Twinkle Glitter.

14. Glue all layers together.

I love that you tinted your embossing paste, and flowed it so carefully on your background, Alison - it made a beautiful texture and sheen to complement the amazing sparkle of your glitter! Beautiful sentiment, too.

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
