Windowrama and Helebore

Hello! The January 2019 catalog from Stampendous is officially out! You are going to love the new products, especially the new die set that the team is featuring this week. It's called the Windorama Die Set and it is so versatile and fun! I will be suing this die set quite a bit! I am also using some of the newest stamps, including the Small Hellebore. I love hellebore flowers... I have some growing in my garden. I love their deep and unusual colors, which I tried to capture in my project for today. My full instructions are below.

Lavender and green cardstock
Scrapbook Adhesives: EZ Runner
Posca Pen: White

Directions:
1. Stamp the Hellebore image on to Canson Mixed Media paper with Nocturne ink.

2. Color the Hellebore with the Zig markers listed.

3. Fussy cut the image.

4. Die cut the Windowrama with Parakeet and Parakeet cardstock.

5. Die cut 2 sets of leaves from a coordinating green cardstock.

6. Add detail to the leaves with Zig's May Green (047).

7. Stamp the sentiment on to the right side of the inside of the green panel with VersaMark Ink.

8. Sprinkle with Detail Black Embossing Powder and heat set.

9. Stamp the outside of the lavender panel with the Dahlia Collage stamp in Sweet Plum Memento Ink.

10. Glue the Windowrama closed.

11. Adhere the Hellebore and the leaves to the Windowrama.

I am excited to explore more ideas with the Windowrama. I really think it could be a game changer for dimensional cards because it is so easy to work with. Please be sure to visit the Stampendous Blog to see more ideas. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

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…

April Sparkle Blends Release Hop

Hello! Welcome back! And if you're new here, my name is Alison, and I appreciate you visiting me. Today is a big day, because Doodles Paper Playground is having their April Sparkle Blends Release Hop. This month, 6 brand new Sparkle Blends have come out to join the party, and the Doodles Paper Playground Divas are joined by several very special Guest Designers. So sit back and enjoy all of the wonderful projects we have to share with you. There are prizes to be won along the way too!
My card today features the beautiful new "Diamond" Sparkle Blend which is filled with lovely clear, opalescent clear, and moonshine sequins. There are different sizes, shapes, and styles in the Blend, so even thought it is all technically "clear," it is full of interest. This mix is perfect for the style of shaker I did today, which has a colored focal image in the background. The clear sequins sparkles, but doesn't hide the background. It just adds some magic. I used, what ver…

Holiday Spirit: Aurora Wings Challenge #73

Seasons Greetings! Today I have a project for the latest Aurora Wings Challenge which is "Holiday Spirit." I decided to take the theme as a two-fer. Not only is this a holiday card, but the "spirits" are flowing too.

I used the Wine Sprite for my card, and gave her a Merlot look. I colored her with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. Here's a closeup.

I found a lovely paper in my stash from Wild Rose Studio from their Holly Lane collection. For my sentiment, I had some pretty red glitter cardstock from DCWV that I die cut with an old alphabet set from QuicKutz. I also added some sequins from a few different Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground. The sequins and the sentiment were all glued on with On Point Glue from Imagine.

On my card base, I inked the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink, and then Peeled Paint Distress Ink. After I adhered my background to my base, I added Rock Candy Stickles to the edges. This gave just a touch of sparkle.

So &quo…
