Hellebore

Hello! This week, the Stampendous Team is sharing projects with "Flowers for Spring." I don't know about you, but I am not a fan of the winter. I much prefer the warmth and beauty of the spring. Today's card has the new Hellebore stamp. This is a BIG stamp, and it is just beautiful. I wanted to make this card very dynamic and bright, to sort of chase away those winter blues. And I think I succeeded. My full instructions are below so that you can make this card yourself.
Supplies:
Stampendous:
W207: Hellebore
DWLJ806: Honeycomb Stencil
SSC1272: Brushed Wishes Stamps

Other:
My Colors Cardstock: Sweetie Pie
Imagine: VersaFine Clair Ink in Nocturne, Twilight, On Point Glue
Tombow Dual Brush Markers: 025, 055, 703, 725, 755, 757
Distress Oxide Inks: Worn Lipstick, Twisted Citron, Peacock Feathers
Dylusions: Ink Spray in Vibrant Turquoise
Scrapbook Adhesives: EZ Runner
Canson: Mixed Media Paper
Recollections: Watercolor Paper
Craft Foam

Directions:
1. Stamp the Hellebore on to Mixed Media Paper with VersaFine Clair Ink in Nocturne

2. Color the stamped image in with the Tombow markers listed.

3. Fussy cut the image out.

4. Create the background on watercolor paper with Distress Oxides by swiping the color on to a glass or media mat, spritzing with water, and swiping the paper through until the desired look is achieved.

5. Let the background dry fully.

6. Spray the Honeycomb stencil with Vibrant Turquoise Ink Spray and lay it on to the dried background.

7. Carefully lift up the stencil and allow background to dry again.

8. Trim the background to your desired size.

9. Create the card base out of Sweetie Pie cardstock, cut to 5 1/2" x 8."

10. Adhere the flower to a piece of craft foam using On Point Glue.

11. Stamp the sentiment to the lower right corner of the background with VersaFine Clair Ink in Twilight.

12. Adhere the background to the card base with EZ Runner.

13. Adhere the flower to the background with On Point Glue.

I love the bold colors of this card. They just make me smile! Please be sure to visit the Stampendous Blog to see more "Flowers for Spring." 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

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
