Laurel Burch Birthday Corners

Hello! This week, the Stampendous Design Team is featuring bright and colorful projects that feature Laurel Burch stamps. We are so lucky to get to work with Laurel's fun artwork, and I am excited to share a few projects with you this week. Today's card uses some images from the Birthday Corners set. I recommend using a stamp positioner if you have one if you'd like to duplicate this card, but it's not required. You may just need to take a little more time to line things up. My full instructions are below.


Supplies: 
Stampendous:
SSCL108: LB Birthday Corners
DCP1009: Spring Border Dies

Other:
My Colors Cardstock: Concord Jam, Atlantic Shore
Imagine: Memento Markers: Pistachio, New Sprout, Pear Tart, Bamboo Leaves, Dandelion, Cantaloupe, Rose Bud, Grape Jelly, Lady Bug, Summer Sky, Bahama Blue, Lilac Posies, Lulu Lavender. VersaFine Ink in Onyx Black. Rose Bud Memento Ink
Scrapbook Adhesives: EZ-Dots
Tonic: Time Holtz Stamp Platform
Canson: Mixed Media Paper
Pink Cardstock


Directions:
1. Cut a 4" x 4" square of Mixed Media Paper.

2. Use Stamp Platform to line the Floral corner stamp up at the 2" mark.

3. Ink the stamp with VersaFine ink and stamp on to the Mixed Media Paper square.

4. Rotate the square, reink the stamp and stamp the image.

5. Repeat step 4 two more times to get 4 stamped corners on the square.

6. Color the images using the Memento Markers listed. I colored the same part on each of the 4 stamped images at once, to keep myself from getting confused.

7. Trim 1/8" off of each side of the square.

8. Cut a 4" x 4" square of Atlantic Shore cardstock.

9. Create the card base out of Concord Jam cardstock, cut to the size of 4 1/4" x 11."

10. Die cut the floral Border Die out of pink cardstock.

11. Lightly tap the die cut border with Rose Bud Memento Ink to add color to the piece.

12. Glue all layers.

Please be sure to visit the rest of the Stampendous team over on the Stampendous Blog. I will be adding this to Imagine's Raspberry Color Challenge via Instagram. I just love color challenges! I am also entering this card into the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, which is "In My Garden." 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
