Catnap Christmas Q-Set

Hello! Have you heard about the new Qsets from Stampendous? I'm going to share some information about them with you today. Qsets are a new kind of cling rubber stamp. They don't have the picture printed on them. Rather, the picture of the image is printed on the acetate sheet the stamps are attached to for storing. There are coordinating dies, but they are a limited quantity. The stamps are all made in the USA, and you'll find lots of fun Christmas and Halloween stamps to choose from! HERE is a video explaining the Qsets even further. Here's my card, featuring the Catnap Christmas Stamps and Dies.

I colored this kitty with Memento Markers. I used the coordinating die to cut him out, and then I created my background. I cut down a piece of white cardstock to 4" x 5 1/4." I applied some Twisted Citron and Peeled Paint Distress Oxide ink to my craft mat and sprayed it with water. I dragged the piece of cardstock through it, heat set it and reinked it a few times until I was happy with the results. Then I made sure it dried completely before I went on to my next step. I also inked up the oval that I would be using for the sentiment.

After the Oxides were dry, I used Festive Berries Distress Ink (not the Oxide) on a retro squares stencil (from Dreamweaver/Stampendous) with a small ink dauber. I allowed this to dry while I made my card base. I inked up the edge of my sentiment with Cottage Ivy Memento Ink and adhered it and the kitty to the background, and then to the card base.

Please be sure to visit the Stampendous Blog to see more fun creations using the new Qsets. I'll be back very soon with another project. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Day 1 of 31 Days: Come as You Aren't

Greetings! It's officially the most wonderful time of the year! Today is Day 1 of the 31 Days of Halloween. I have participated in every 31 Days (what are we at? Year 5?) and I am so excited to be doing it again. For my first project. I use a bunch of Stampendous' newest Halloween images.


I started off with the fantastic witch label from the Halloween Labels Cling and Die Set and colored it with Zig Clean Color Markers. I then stamped the spiderweb and a spider from the Spider Fear set and embossed with with Star Dust embossing powder.

I created my card base out of Sweet Potato cardstock and stenciled the Swirls Stencil with Gray Flannel Memento ink. I didn't make it solid, rather I wanted the stenciled image to fade in and out of the background. Then I inked up the bottom edge of the card base with VersaMark ink and then heat embossed Marcastie Embossing Powder on top. The card needed a little something further, so I stamped a sentiment from the Spooky Wishes set on to ve…

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 "thank…

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'…
