Christmas Bunny Shaker

Greetings! Today I have a new shaker card to share that uses several of the Add-On products for the White Rose Crafts December Subscription Kit.

I started out with the sweet Christmas Bunny stamp from Wild Rose Studio. I colored her in Wintry colors with my Zig Clean Color markers. Then I had to figure out a way to make a shaker window, without cutting off her ear. I used a heart die from Lawn Fawn's Magic Slider Die set and taped it into place. Then, I put my top plate on top (I use a Sizzix Big Shot machine), but only to the top of her ear. This way, the die wouldn't cut beyond the plate. Then, I turned the paper and die sideways, and repeated the process to cut to the side of her ear. I wound up with what's shown in the photo below.

You can see that her ear hasn't been cut because of how I placed the top plate. Then, I just used an X-Acto Knife to cut around the ear and remove the inner portion of the heart.

For my background, I applied some Tumbled Glass Distress Ink with a cosmetic sponge to the outer portion of the piece. I made sure the ink was dry, then I used VersaMark Ink to apply snowflakes from the Dovecraft "Magic and Sparkle Snowflakes" stamp set. Then I heat embossed Ranger's Holographic powder. It's hard to photograph them, but they are really lovely in person.

Inside my shaker window I used the "Frozen" Sparkle Blend from Doodles Paper Playground and I backed the area with Blue Shimmer Paper from Craft Creations, which is actually in the December Kit.

I love the overall soft look of this card. And I think it is very sweet. It was fun to experiment with how to get the die to work around the bunny too! Please be sure to visit White Rose Crafts to see not only the December Kit, but the Add-Ons as well. 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

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


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 . 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
