Rainbow Hello

Hello there! I have a bright and cheery Stampendous card to share with you today. This week, the Design Team has been sharing projects that feature the various Brushed Greetings that Stampendous has to offer. My card uses the "Hello" from the Brushed Wishes set, as well as one of the pretty borders from the Spring Borders dies set. My full instructions are below.

Supplies:
Stampendous:
DCP1009: Border Die Set
SSC1272: Brushed Wishes Perfectly Clear Stamp Set
DP100: Detail White Embossing Powder

Other:
My Colors Cardstock: Plum, Ocean Side, Parrot, Banana Pepper, Mandarin, Firecracker
Imagine: VersaMark Ink
Scrapbook Adhesives: EZ Runner


Directions:
1. Create the card base out of Plum cardstock, cut to 7 1/2" x 5 1/4."

2. Die cut the bottom front flap of the card base with the scallop border die.

3. Trim down all other cardstocks to be 5 1/4" wide by approximately 1."

4. Die cut each of the cardstocks with the same scallop border die.

5. Adhere the Ocean Side layer to the card base, approximately 1/2" from the bottom.

6. Continue this process in reverse rainbow order (except for Firecracker), adhering each layer about 1/2" above the last.

7. Stamp the sentiment and the circle with VersaMark ink repeatedly on to the Firecracker cardstock.

8. Emboss with Detail White Embossing Powder.

9. Attach the Firecracker layer to the card base.

Please be sure to visit the rest of the Stampendous team over on the blog. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

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…

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'…

Day 1 of 31 Days: Come as You Aren't

Greetings! It's officially the most wonderful time of the year! Today is Day 1 of the 31 Days of Halloween. I have participated in every 31 Days (what are we at? Year 5?) and I am so excited to be doing it again. For my first project. I use a bunch of Stampendous' newest Halloween images.


I started off with the fantastic witch label from the Halloween Labels Cling and Die Set and colored it with Zig Clean Color Markers. I then stamped the spiderweb and a spider from the Spider Fear set and embossed with with Star Dust embossing powder.

I created my card base out of Sweet Potato cardstock and stenciled the Swirls Stencil with Gray Flannel Memento ink. I didn't make it solid, rather I wanted the stenciled image to fade in and out of the background. Then I inked up the bottom edge of the card base with VersaMark ink and then heat embossed Marcastie Embossing Powder on top. The card needed a little something further, so I stamped a sentiment from the Spooky Wishes set on to ve…
