We’ve got 6 brand new blends to share with you this month: Cozy, Storm Cloud, Good Luck Charm, Mardi Gras Parade, Birthstone Collection: February - Amethyst and Birthstone Collection: March - Aquamarine. we just know you’re going to find some sparkle to love! To see detailed descriptions of each of the February Sparkle Blends release, check out our release blog post!
This release has a variety of beautiful blends to choose from! Do you have a favorite? In honor of Valentine’s Day, comment with your favorite blend on the original Doodles Paper Playground post, for a chance to win a package of Conversation Hearts from our December release.
For my card, I chose to work with the We're Turning One Sparkle Blend. I love the bright colors in this mix. From the blues and greens, to the hot pink and purples. I adore the wide range of sizes and shapes too. This Sparkle Blend is just beautiful. And you can only get it (for free!) with a purchase of $10 or more at White Rose Crafts, while supplies last.
My focal layer was created with Stampendous' Flutters & Flowers stamp set. This is one big stamp, and it fits perfectly on a standard sized card. I colored it in with Zig Clean Color Markers. I don't usually make shakers that are basically the size of my card, but this stamp was too pretty to trim, and I really wanted to show off the "We're Turning One" Sparkle Blend. I used an Elizabeth Crafts Designs die cut to make my border around my shaker, and I used foam tape to seal it. I used a simple sentiment from Simon Says Stamp's Tiny Words stamps, just to finish the card off. The sentiment is perfect for almost any occasion, which is why I chose it. Now, read on to find out all of the prize info and full hop list.

This card is the most beautiful shaker. I adore the whole look of the card. Such a lovely card!
This lovely floral card is perfect for any occasion by just changing the sentiment on it. By making it a shaker card just adds that extra special touch that makes it outstanding.

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
