Owl Hugs for my Son

Greetings! Earlier in the month, I shared THIS card that I made with the Unicorn Sparkle Blend from Doodles Paper Playground and 2 of the Give a Hoot stamps from Elizabeth Crafts. Today, I am sharing a card I made from my son using the same stamp set, but for the shaker I used a combination of Sparkle Blends.

I adore the sweetness of these owl stamps, and I knew my son would love a card with them just as much as my daughter. I had previously colored the "Momma" owl, so that helped me choose the directions for the baby and the rest of the card.

After I colored the owls, I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. Next I chose a couple of fun patterned papers from DCWV, and I cut a window in one of them using Elizabeth Craft Designs' Stitched Rectangles.

Then I moved on to choosing the Sparkle Blends for the card. It turned out that there wasn't one that was quite right for the card, so I decided to create my own! That's the beauty of playing with Sparkle Blends....you can always mix them together to create a custom look. For this shaker, I used Flaming Sunset (one of my son's favorites), But First, Coffee, and Limonade.

When all was said and done, I had the perfect combination of Sparkle Blends for my card, and I am happy to report that he adored his card. My sentiment is the same that I used for my daughter's card, which is from the You Are Loved stamp set from Hero Arts, and my card base is gray. So why not pop on over to White Rose Crafts LLC to see what beautiful combinations of Sparkle Blends you can come up with for yourself? You just can't make a wrong decision! White Rose Crafts is the only place you can buy Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground. I'll be back soon with a new project. 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 "

Dream Big: Imagine Collaboration with Joy Clair

Hello! The Artists in Residence for Imagine had the wonderful opportunity to collaborate with Joy Clair. They sent us some fabulous stamps, and I really love them. The stamps have such beautiful details, and there are many many options within each set. I chose to work with the Dream Big Clear Stamp Set. It features a big dream catcher with feathers and beads that you can place as you wish.  It's linework is so fine, that I knew that VersaFine ink would be the perfect ink for these stamps. But first, I chose to spritz some Fireworks! on to my watercolor paper. I focused on keeping the color up where I would place the dream catcher later. After the Fireworks! dried, I inked up the hoop of the dream catcher and stamped it out. Then I "built" the rest of the dream catcher using the beads and feathers that are also in the set. It was so much fun to create the rest of the piece. After I was happy with the beads and feathers, I drew a "string" with a PITT pen
