Yoga Flamingo

Hello! This week, the Stampendous Design Team has been sharing projects with animals doing yoga, or "Balance Buddies." There is a new flamingo trying yoga, so I had to use it. As you may know, I love all things flamingo! I also incorporated one of the older 6" x 6" stamps into the background. My full instructions are below.
P331: Yoga Flamingo
F246: This Body
6CR005: Cling Mixed Mesh
DP111: Detail Black Embossing Powder
DP100: Detail White Embossing Powder
DCP1006: Fitted Frame Set B

Imagine: VersaMark Ink, VersaFine Ink in Onyx Black
My Colors Cardstock: Atlantic Shore
Zig Clean Color Markers: 021, 024, 220, 222, 302, 900
Canson Mixed Media Paper
Scrapbook Adhesives: EZ Runner
1. Stamp the Yoga Flamingo on to Mixed Media Paper with VersaFine Ink.

2. Color the stamp with the markers listed above.

3. Die cut the colored image with the Large "P" Fitted Frame.

4. Stamp "This Body" with VersaMark ink on the stamped image.

5. Emboss the sentiment with Detail Black Embossing Powder and heat set.

6. Create the card base out of Atlantic Shore cardstock, cut to 4 1/4" x 11."

7. Stamp the Mixed Mesh stamp on the front of the card base with VersaMark ink.

8. Sprinkle Detail White Embossing Powder on the stamped image and heat set.

9. Glue the flamingo to the card base.

That's it for me today. Please be sure to visit the Stampendous Blog for more animals doing yoga! 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 "


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
