No Probllama

Greetings! This week, the Stampendous Team has been featuring projects made with their special Q-Sets. I decided to work with the set called, "No Probllama," as I love llamas. I also incorporated some stenciling, which if you've visited me before, you know how much I enjoy doing that. Check out my full instructions on how to make this card below.
QS5015: No Probllama
DCP1005: Fitted Frame Set A
DWLJ813: Fan Pattern Metal Stencil
MPW811: Mixed Media White Paper
DWNHB-9: 3/8" Stencil Brush

Bazzill: Chocolate cardstock, light brown cardstock
Imagine: VersaMagic in Wheat, Sage, Pumpkin Spice, & Red Brick, VersaFine Clair Ink in Nocturne, On Point Glue
Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens: 050, 051, 052, 064, 065, 075, 230, 260, 302, 303, 901
Faber-Castell: Brush Tip PITT Pen in black
Canson: Mixed Media Paper
Scrapbook Adhesives: EZ Runner
Craft Foam

1. Stamp the llamas and sentiments on Canson's Mixed Media Paper with VersaFine Clair Ink.

2. Color the images using the Zig Clean Color Markers listed.

3. The "No Probllama" stamp does not have the defined speech bubble around it, so I drew it in myself with a black PITT pen.

4. Die cut or fussy cut all 4 colored images. I did not have the dies, so I fussy cut them.

5. On a piece of 4" x 5 1/4" Mixed Media White Paper, tape down the Fan Pattern metal stencil.

6. Apply the VersaMagic ink listed from lightest to darkest. I used the Sage to help me blend the colors.

7. Using the Large "L" Fitted Frame, die cut 2 windows vertically in the stenciled background.

8. Create the card base out of light brown cardstock, cut to 4 1/4" x 11."

9. Cut 2 pieces of Bazzill Chocolate cardstock to fit behind the windows, and adhere them to the card base.

10. Cut craft foam and adhere to the back of the stenciled background using On Point Glue.

11. Adhere the stenciled background to the card base with On Point Glue.

12. Adhere the llamas inside the die cut windows, using EZ Runner on their necks, and craft foam to their heads. This makes is look as though they are coming out of the window.

13. Adhere the speech bubbles to the background using the EZ Runner.

These llamas crack me up! And I think it's fun to have them peeking out of the die cut windows. Please be sure to visit the Stampendous Blog to see some of the other Q-Sets that are featured this week. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

I love the way the card looks like it has so much texture with the stenciling. The llamas are adorable and so is the card. I love that one llama has beautifully long eyelashes and the other has a great bow tie. [Bunny]`

I have to say that the llama with glasses is a favorite and I love how you have them peeking through the die cut windows. It makes them look like they're neighbors who are having a chat!

Day 1 of 31 Days: Come as You Aren't

Greetings! It's officially the most wonderful time of the year! Today is Day 1 of the 31 Days of Halloween. I have participated in every 31 Days (what are we at? Year 5?) and I am so excited to be doing it again. For my first project. I use a bunch of Stampendous' newest Halloween images.

I started off with the fantastic witch label from the Halloween Labels Cling and Die Set and colored it with Zig Clean Color Markers. I then stamped the spiderweb and a spider from the Spider Fear set and embossed with with Star Dust embossing powder.

I created my card base out of Sweet Potato cardstock and stenciled the Swirls Stencil with Gray Flannel Memento ink. I didn't make it solid, rather I wanted the stenciled image to fade in and out of the background. Then I inked up the bottom edge of the card base with VersaMark ink and then heat embossed Marcastie Embossing Powder on top. The card needed a little something further, so I stamped a sentiment from the Spooky Wishes set on to ve…

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 "thank…


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'…
