Party Peeking

Hello! Today I wanted to share a card that I made quite some time ago, but never got around to posting. Does that happen to you too? You get a bunch of posts pre-written, but some of them just never go live? This is one of them, and shame on me for it, because this Party Peeking House Mouse stamp is so adorable! And that bright background? Super easy to make. Check out my full instructions below. 
Supplies:
Stampendous:
HMP74: Party Peeking

Other:
My Colors Cardstock: Mint Julep, Banana Pepper
Zig Clean Color Markers: 022, 026, 029, 032, 038, 041, 045, 050, 051, 052, 060, 061, 064, 067, 070, 071, 080, 090, 091, 094, 302, 803, 901

Canson: Mixed Media Paper
Recollections: Brayer
Beacon Adhesieves: Zip Dry Glue
EK Success: Medium Corner Rounder
Blue Flat Sequins


Directions:
1. Stamp the image on to Canson's Mixed Media Paper with Onyx Black VersaFine ink.

2. Color the image using the colors listed.

3. Trim image and use Medium Corner Rounder in all 4 corners.

4. Cut another piece of Mixed Media Paper to 5 1/4" x 4."

5. Click the Kaleidacolor inks together, and roll your brayer on to the inks. Spritz the brayer with Ink Potion No. 9 to get the colors to blend and migrate better.

6. Roll the brayer on to the Mixed Media Paper in an up and down motion, being careful to not roll the colors diagonally. Let dry.

7. Create the card base with Banana Pepper cardstock cut to 5 1/2" x 8."

8. Create a mat of Mint Julep, cut to 3 1/2" x 4 1/4." Round the corners.

9. Adhere the Kaleidacolor background to the card base.

10. Tilt the Mint Julep mat and adhere on a diagonal.

11. Tilt the House Mouse image in the opposite direction of the Mint Julep mat, and adhere.

12. Glue 5 flat cobalt blue sequins to the card using On Point Glue.

The coloring of the stamped image took a bit of time, but the rest of the card came together nice and fast, which is great. 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
