Wisteria Circle

Hello there! I am really excited to share my project with you today. My card features the brand new Wisteria Circle stamp from Stampendous. I love this stamp, and all imagery of wisteria. I have thriving wisteria plant at the front of my house, and it makes me smile whenever I look at it, especially when it is in bloom. It's just a lovely plant. So this week, the Stampendous team and I are featuring this stamp, as well as the new Tree Circle stamp, which I'll be sharing later in the week.  I tried to make my stamped image look like cloisonne, which is beautiful metal and enamel work. My full instructions are below.
Supplies:
Stampendous:
W202: Wisteria Circle
SSC1281: Greetings Galore
DP102: Detail Gold Embossing Powder

Other:
My Colors Cardstock: Sky, Winter Lake, Wildflower
Imagine: VersaMark Ink
Artist's Loft: Watercolor Paper, Watercolors
Scrapbook Adhesives: E-Z Runner


Directions:
1. On a piece of watercolor paper, stamp the Wisteria Circle with VersaMark Ink.

2. Sprinkle the stamped image with Detail Gold embossing powder and heat set.

3. Watercolor the embossed image. I used shades of purples, blues and greens, plus 1 brown for mine.

4. After the watercolored image is dried, cut it out.

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

6. Create a mat using Wildflower cardstock, cut to 3 3/4" x 4 3/4."

7. Cut a strip of Winter Lake to the size of 4 1/4" x 1."

8. Stamp a sentiment from the Greetings Galore set with VersaMark ink on to the strip of Winter Lake.

9. Sprinkle Detail Gold Embossing Powder on to the sentiment and heat set.

10. Tear the bottom of the sentiment strip for texture.

11. Glue all layers to the card base.

Please don't forget to visit the rest of the Stampendous team that is playing along to day over on the Blog. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

I think the Wisteria stamp is my favorite of the 2. This is yet another completely different look. Soft & pretty.

Your wisteria looks just like cloisonné! It is beautiful. Don't have wisteria in my yard, but there are some vines in the neighborhood so get to see it-- so lovely.

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
