Arabesque and Moroccan Mesh

Hello! This week,the Stampendous DT is sharing projects that use the new Moroccan Tile 6x6 stamp. Well, I had realized that I hadn't shared a card I had made with the Moroccan Mesh stencil that came out in January, so I thought it was a good time to share that with you.
Supplies:
Stampendous:
W197: Arabesque Stamp
FMS4084: Moroccan Mesh Stencil
EP222: Carnelian Pearlustre Embossing Powder
SSC1272: Brushed Wishes Perfectly Clear Stamp Set
DWNHB-9: 3/8" Stencil Brush
MPW811: Mixed Media White Paper

Other:
Neenah: Desert Storm Cardstock
Imagine: VersaMark Ink, VersaMagic in Turquoise Gem, Memento Ink in Potter's Clay, Tear It! Tape
Scrapbook Adhesives: EZ Dot, White Foam Squares
Teal Satin Ribbon

Directions:
1. On a piece of 5 1/4" x 3 3/4" Mixed Media White paper, tape down the Moroccan Mesh Stencil.

2. Using the Stencil Brush, apply Turquoise Gem VersaMagic to the entire piece. Remove Stencil.

3. On another piece of Mixed Media White Paper, stamp the Arabesque image with VersaMark Ink.

4. Sprinkle Carnelian Embossing Powder on top of the stamped image, shake off excess, and heat set.

5. Cut around the shape of the Arabesque stamp.

6. Create the card base out of Neenah Desert Storm cardstock, cut to the size of 4 1/4 x 11."

7. Adhere a piece of turquoise satin ribbon to the bottom of the stenciled layer using Tear It! Tape.

8. Stamp the brushed "Hello" stamp on to a small piece Mixed Media White Paper using Potter's Clay Memento ink.

9. On the card base, apply VersaMark ink to the 2 vertical sides.

10. Sprinkle Carnelian Embossing Powder on to the sides, shake off excess and heat set.

11. Apply white foam squares to the bottom of the Arabesque image and adhere to the stenciled layer.

12. Attach stenciled layer to the card base with EZ Dots.

This is a pretty quick card to pull together, and the color possibilities are endless. It would be fun to make a stationary set as a gift with each card featuring a different stenciled color. I may need to do that myself! Please be sure to visit the Stampendous Blog to see what the rest of the team is sharing 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
