Rainbow Greetings Galore

Greetings! Really big greetings, that is. This week, the Stampendous Design Team is showcasing projects using the new Great Big Thanks and Great Big Happy stamp sets. I decided to create a rainbow on my card today, and it was really simple to do. My full instructions are below.
Supplies:
Stampendous:
SSC1281: Greetings Galore
SSC1283: Big Words Thanks
MPW811: Mixed Media Paper

Other:
Imagine: Memento Inks in- Lady Bug, Tangelo, Dandelion, Cottage Ivy, Bahama Blue, Grape Jelly, Tuxedo Black
My Colors Cardstock: Fireflies
Kaiser: Silver Rhinestones
Scrapbook Adhesives: E-Z Runner
Stamp Positioner (Not required, but helpful)

Directions:
1. Cut a piece of MixedMedia Paper to 4" x 5."

2. Stick the brushstroke stamp from the Greetings Galore set to a stamp positioner or to an acrylic block. The stamp positioner isn't required, but it will certainly make creating this card easier. Stick the stamp where you would like the red brushstroke to be. This will allow you to move your card up to restamp the image with each color properly.

3. Place the Mixed Media Paper in the corner and stamp the image with Lady Bug Memento ink.

4. Move the Mixed Media Paper up 1/2."

5. Ink up the stamp with Tangelo Memento ink and stamp the paper again.

6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 with each of the colors mentioned, in rainbow order.

7. Remove the brushstroke stamp, and adhere the sentiment (from the Big Words Thanks set) to the stamp positioner. Remember to move the Mixed Media Paper back down into the corner of the positioner.

8. Ink the sentiment up with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and stamp the image.

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

10. Adhere the stamped layer to the card base.

11. Apply 2 sizes of silver rhinestones to the stamped layer.

The new Big Happy Words and Thanks sets are going to be perfect for so many of the cards folks like us make every day. Please be sure to visit the Stampendous Blog to see more made with these extremely useful sets. 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
