Festive Elegance Blog Hop

Welcome Rosies to the December Festive Elegance Blog Hop. This month's hop will Run from today, December 15th- Friday, December 21st at 12pm. There is a chance for you to win a $15 WRC Gift Card just for hoping along with us and leaving a comment at each stop along the way!
Have you seen our December Festive Elegance Subscription Kit? There are only a few left in stock, so don't miss out on a chance to own your own bit of Festive Winter Elegance. But did you know that with each of our kits, there is always an Kit Add-On section of the Store that compliments your Monthly Subscription Kit? And did you know you can get anything in that Kit Add-On section for 10% off!!!
The design team is playing around with the vast array of crafting supplies you can find in the December Kit Add-Ons for this hop. So prepare yourself for all the fun and the very cool line up of projects we've created.
The Heffy Doodle stamp set called "Warm Hugs" was my starting point for this card. I thought the characters and all of their accessories were very cute, and I love that they have an igloo. I colored all of the images with Zig Clean Color Markers, and then I fussy cut them out. There are a lot more images than what I have used here, but I didn't think that this particular card needed more.

I wanted to have the characters standing on snow. But not just flat white snow. Beautiful, glittery mounds of snow. So I used Lawn Fawn's Sparkle Cardstock in Pixie Dust. I love the texture of not only the front of this cardstock, but the back as well. And it cuts like butter. For my sky, I applied Tumbled Glass and Chipped Sapphire Distress Inks with a cosmetic sponge. My sentiment is from the Warm Hugs stamp set, and I inked that Tumbled Glass Distress Ink as well. I added a few stars from the Bubblegum Ice Sparkle Blend. Everything was glued down with Glossy Accents, as it's tough to use regular dry adhesive on glitter paper. My card base is made out of gray 110 lb. cardstock.

Almost all of the products that I used on my card today are on sale in the December Kit Add-Ons section. You can get 10% off anything in that category, and there are over 25 pages of products! Please be sure to visit the rest of the team; their blogs are all listed below. 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
