Dewlet Hello

Hello! Today, I've got a new shaker card to share featuring several beautiful Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground.  I recently purchased the new Dewlet dies from Imagine. They're meant to perfectly die cut around their Dew Drop Inks. But I knew they would also be great for shaker cards.
 I started off by laying out all 5 Dewlets in a pattern. I temporarily taped them down and die cut them in my Big Shot. Then, I added foam tape. Then I realized I forgot to add acetate to seal the windows! So I carefully pulled off the foam tape and added acetate. Luckily, I realized my goof up before I got too far with the tape. After I added all of the tape, I chose my Sparkle Blends.

I used (from top to bottom) Love Potion, Pretty in Pink, Garnet, Lilac Luster, and I combined Rosy Gold with Strawberry Fields. I really like the pink, purple, and red color combination these Blends gave the card.
 For my sentiment, I die cut the Sugar Script "Big Hello" from Birch Press. I love the Sugar Scrip font. It works really well with some many styles. I die cut the top layer out of hot pink, and the bottom layer out of lavender cardstock.

For a 5 window shaker, it's a pretty clean and simple card. I like that it didn't need inks or stamps to complete, as it's sometimes nice to step away from your usual go-to products. You can check out all of these, plus many other Sparkle Blends over at White Rose Crafts. They are the exclusive retailer, and all Sparkle Blends are limited edition. So take a look at your shape dies and see how you can use them for fun shaker cards! 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

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

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 "
