Fleur de Lis Hello

Hello! This week, the Stampendous team is sharing projects featuring some of the new Parisian themed stamps and dies. Before I get to my card, I wanted to let you know that I am participating in the very first Doodles Paper Playground Blog Hop, and i would love it if you could check out my other post HERE. I promise, it's worth it! On to Stampendous... For my project, I decided to work with the Fleur de Lis die that is in the Paris Bonjour die set. There is no accompanying stamp for it, so I decided to use alcohol inks to create interesting patterns for my die cuts. Also, I really wanted to use the new "hello" stamp, and have it look as though it had been die cut. I simply traced the full stamp on to my piece of vellum and fussy cut it out. Now it looks like it has been die cut! My full instructions are below.

DCS5105: Paris Bonjour Die Cut Set
SSC1283: Big Words Thanks
DCP1006: Fitted Frames Set B

My Colors Cardstock: Sky
Bo Bunny: 12BV807- Blueberry Vintage Double Dot Cardstock
Ranger: Alcohol Ink in Eggplant, Stonewashed, Sailboat Blue. Ink Blending Tool
Imagine: StazOn Ink in Royal Purple, On Point Glue
HP Glossy Photo Paper
Scrapbook Adhesives: E-Z Runner
Lavender Cardstock

1. Apply a few drops of each alcohol ink to a piece of foam/felt on an Ink Blending Tool.

2. On a piece of Glossy Photo Paper, apply alcohol inks using a tapping or swirling motion. Do not over blend.

3. After the paper has dried, die cut 4 Fleur de Lis.

4. Die cut a piece of lavender cardstock using the Large "P" Fitted Frame.

5. Create the card base out of Sky Cardstock, cut to 4 1/4" x 11."

6. Cut a mat out of Blueberry Vintage cardstock (I used the Double Dot side), cut to 3 3/4" x 5 1/4."

7. On a piece of vellum, stamp the "Hello" with Royal Purple Staz On.

8. After the ink has dried on the sentiment, place the (uninked) stamp back on top of the image.

9. Trace around the stamp itself with a pencil. This will give you a nice border.

10. Fussy cut around the traced line.

11. Glue all layers, except the vellum, with the E-Z Runner.

12. Adhere the vellum sentiment with On Point Glue. Try to only add adhesive where the stamped image is, to prevent the glue from showing.

I hope you have enjoyed all of the projects you've seen this week. If you've missed any days, please be sure to head over to the Stampendous Blog to see more. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

The fleur de lis is also a symbol
of St. Louis, MO. We don't have
the Eiffel Tower but it will still
feature on our greeting cards.
The card is great.
thanks for sharing

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 "
