Friends Remain in Our Hearts

Hello! I have a card about friendship to share with you today. It uses a small stamp to create a background, and a large sentiment stamp for the focal point. All of my instructions are below.

SSC1254: Safe Travels Perfectly Clear Stamp Set
DCP1006: Fitted Frames Set B
STF082: Onyx Black VersaFine

Imagine: VersaMagic: Aspen Mist, Night Sky, Sheer Shimmer Spritz: Sparkle
Zig Clean Color Markers: 028, 082, 230, 260, 302
My Colors Cardstock: Ocean Side
Beacon Adhesives: Zip Dry Glue
Canson: Mixed Media Paper
Piece of scrap Watercolor Paper with inks, sprays, etc. on it

1. Take a scrap piece of watercolor paper that has overspray, inks, etc on it (mine had Color Burst) and die cut it with the small "H" Fitted Frame.

2. Ink the sentiment with VersaFine ink and stamp on to the die cut.

3. Ink the edges of the die cut with Night Sky VersaMagic.

4. Using Canson Mixed Media Paper, cut a piece to 5 1/4" x 3 3/4."

5. Stamp the flying hearts stamp all over the Mixed Media Paper with VersaFine.

6. Color the hearts and wings using Zig Clean Color Markers using the colors listed above.

7. Spray with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Sparkle.

8. Ink the edges with Aspen Mist VersaMagic.

9. Create the card base out of Ocean Side cardstock. Cut to the size of 5 1/2" x 8."

10. Glue all pieces together using Zip Dry Glue.

Cards that are just about appreciating friendship are so special in my opinion. They go beyond the average birthday or holiday card. It's a special token of how you feel about someone, and is often unexpected, which is the best part. 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

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Hop

This is a very exciting week for the Stampendous team! We are hanging out with the ultra cool Deco Art Mixed Media team, each using each other's products to share some incredible creations with you. These companies go hand in hand, so using each other's products is easy. And the results are amazing. We are of course featuring Andy Skinner's stamps, who is the DecoArt International Education Coordinator.  And yup, there are prizes! But I want you to go to the Stampendous Blog for all of that info. The link is at the bottom of the post. Now, on to my project. I made a cool wall hanging today. I started off with a piece of MDF and I drilled 2 holes, and covered it with DecoArt's white Gesso. After it dried, I used Andy's Alcohol and Media fluid Acrylics Layering Technique. You can check out his how-to video HERE . Needless to say, it's a great technique, and I loved doing it. Once I finished with the aforementioned technique, I sealed the piece w

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 "
