Vintage Christmas Card

Greetings! This week, the White Rose Crafts Design Team is sharing cards with a Christmas theme. I took this opportunity to use the Craft Creations Decoupage Pop-Out Die Sheet in "Christmas Visit."

I really enjoyed working with this die sheet because I was able to put together a great card in no time. Plus, I have lots of extra pieces so that I can make at least 2 more cards. You can layer up all of the pieces to make one project, but I wanted to get a few out of the single sheet. And the price points on these pop-out sheets is fantastic!

You can see in the photo above the dimension I got from using just a few of the die cuts. They pop out very easily and you don't need to color anything. After I layered my pieces together, I opted to add some Stampendous Multi Crystal Glitter Mix to the snow using On Point Glue. It was the extra little something that I needed.

Next, I created my sky. I blended Antique Linen, Iced Spruce, and Faded Jeans Distress Oxide Inks to create a wintry sky. It's an unusual color combination, but I think it really makes it look like there is a chill in the air. For a bit more sparkle, I added a few sequins from assorted Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground. They sequins I chose has just enough shine to show up, but not overpower the rest of the card. I mounted everything on to a blue card base and considered this card to be complete. It came together very quickly, and I love the dimension and shine. I will absolutely be getting more of these pop-out die cut sheets from Craft Creations. There are so many to choose from!

I hope you liked my card for today. All of my supplies minus my card base and On Point Glue are from White Rose Crafts LLC. I'll be back very soon with another 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 "

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
