Mum Blossoms

Hello! Today I am sharing a card that features the Mum Blossoms stamp from Stampendous, as well as one of their stencils and a 6x6 stamp. This card is bright and cheery, and feels very much like Spring.

Supplies:
Stampendous:
W198: Mum Blossoms
6CR003: 6x6 Blossom Scroll Stamp
DCP1005: Fitted Frames Set A
FMS4066: Thicket Stencil
MPW811: Mixed Media White Paper
DWNHB-P: 3/8" Stencil Brush
DWDEPT: Translucent Embossing Paste
DWDPK: Palette Knife
MG01: Crystal Micro Glitter

Other:
My Colors Cardstock: Parrot, Winter Lake, Pimento, Fireflies
Imagine: Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black, Dandelion,  Brillance Ink in Pearlescent Sky Blue and Sunflower, Fireworks! Spray in Tuxedo Black
Tombow Dual Brush Markers: 025, 055, 126, 173, 177, 533, 553, 723, 815, 837, 985
Scrapbook Adhesives: EZ-Dots
Beacon Adhesives: Zip Dry Glue

Directions:
1. Stamp the Mum Blossoms with Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black on to Mixed Media White Paper.

2. Color the stamped image in with the Tombow markers listed.

3. Fussy cut the image out; I left a thin white border because of how delicate some of the areas are.

4. Die cut a piece of Parrot cardstock with the Large "Q" Fitted Frame.

5. Temporarily tape down the Thicket Stencil on top of the Parrot die cut.

6. With a stencil brush, apply Sunflower Brilliance Ink to the stencil.

7. Remove stencil, and heat set the wet ink.

8. Replace stencil, and using the Palette Knife, Apply a layer of Translucent Embossing Paste right on top of the inked layer.

9. Remove and wash the stencil.

10. Sprinkle Crystal Micro Glitter into the wet paste, shake off excess, and let dry.

11. Die cut a piece of Pimento cardstock with the Small "W" Fitted Frame.

12. Create the card base out of Winter Lake Cardstock, cut to the size of 4 1/4" x 11."

13. Using Pearlescent Sky Blue Brillance Ink, apply the scrolled portions of the Blossom Scroll Stamp to the card base. Repeat this section to cover the base.

14. Cut a strip of Fireflies Cardtsock to the size of 2" x 5 1/2."

15. Using Dandelion Memento Ink, stamp the Blossom Scroll stamp on to it.

16. From about 12" above, spritz the colored Mum Blossoms image with Tuxedo Black Fireworks! Spray. This will leave a very fine mist. Do not overdo it.

17. Adhere all layers with EZ-Dots, except the Mum Blossom layer.

18. Attach Mum Blossom layer with Zip Dry Glue.

That's it for me today. 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

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
