Majestic Unicorn

Greetings! Today I am sharing a card that uses one of the newest Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground. It's called "Majestic," and if you love shades of pink, gold and unicorns, then you've got to get this Blend!

The Sparkle Blends helped me to choose my color palette for the rest of the card. I used the Unicorn Rose stamp from Stampendous, and I colored her in with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I also added some gold Stickles to her mane for added sparkle.

My top layer was created with watercolor paper. I applied Delicata Re-inkers from Imagine in Golden Glitz and Pink Shimmer directly on to my brayer, and then I spritzed the brayer with Ink Potion No. 9. Then, I just rolled it on to my watercolor paper. I did add a few more spritzes of Ink Potion No. 9 directly to the paper as well. After the ink was dry, I used the Moroccan Mesh stencil with Rose Bud Memento ink and a sponge dauber, and inked a few areas on the paper. I didn't want to cover the whole thing. Then I die cut my window with an older Sizzix die.

You can see in the photo above all of the wonderful little bits that are inside this Sparkle Blend. I've got to be honest, I'm not much of a pink girl, and I didn't know how much I'd like this Blend in person, but it is absolutely beautiful! I adore the little unicorn heads that are in it! Do you see them?

I especially love the fully glittered sequins like the large pink one you can see on the photo above. Many of the new Sparkle Blends this month have different colored glittered sequins, and they are really fantastic! My sentiment is from one of my favorite sentiment stamp sets. It's from Hero Arts and it's called You Are Loved. Jennifer McGuire helped to create this set, and part of the proceeds go to the Kind Campaign to help end bullying. I stamped the sentiment with StazOn on to vellum, and I adhered it with On Point Glue, where I attached the extra little sequins. The inside of my shaker, by the way, has an older piece of DCWV cardstock.

It was fun to design the whole card based on the colors and what's inside this Majestic Sparkle Blend. I have always loved unicorns, so this card was a joy to make. Remember you can only get Doodles Paper Playground's Sparkle Blends at White Rose Crafts LLC. Thanks so much 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
