Friends are Like Flowers

Hello! This week, the Stampendous team is sharing, "Flowers for Spring" projects. We stampers all have plenty of smaller images in our stash that can be used repetitively to create a custom background. That's just what I did on this card. Stamping only took a couple of minutes with an acrylic block, and then I kept my coloring simple too. My instructions are below.
Supplies:
Stampendous:
POPST03AFR: Flower Stamp Set
RS-F245: Friends add Color
DP111: Detail Black Embossing Powder
DCP1005: Fitted Frames Set A

Other:
My Colors Cardstock: Pink Delight
Imagine: VersaMark Ink, VersaFine Ink in Onyx Black
Zig Clean Color Markers: Sweet Almond Pink (200), Emerald Green (048), Green (040)
Scrapbook Adhesives: EZ Runner, Foam Squares
Smooth pink cardstock, green cardstock
Directions:
1. Create the card base with smooth pink cardstock, cut to 4 1/4" x 11."

2. Stamp the whimsical flower all over the front of the base with VersaFine Ink.

3. Loosely color the flowers with the Zig markers listed.

4. Die cut the Large "D" Fitted Frame out of green cardstock.

5. Stamp the sentiment with VersaMark Ink on to Pink Delight cardstock. You may want to stamp it twice because the cardstock is textured.

6. Sprinkle Detail Black Embossing Powder on to the stamped sentiment and heat set.

7. Die cut the sentiment with the Small "D" Fitted Frame.

8. Adhere the green fitted frame with the EZ Runner.

9. Adhere the sentiment layer with foam squares.

I'd love to make a set of this card in several colors to give as a gift to a teacher. Imagine getting a rainbow set of this cheerful card! It wouldn't take very long to make either. If you'd like to see more "Flowers for Spring," head on over to the Stampendous Blog. 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

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 "

Changes

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 alisonheikkila.com . 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
