Margarita Shaker

Hello! This week, the White Rose Crafts Design Team is sharing projects that feature Jillibean Soup products. They have such fun items like sweet stamps, coordinating dies, and shaker windows. My card today is a shaker, but it doesn't use their pre-made windows.
 I use Jillibean Soup's Lemonade stamps and coordinating dies, which by the way, have an amazing price point! On a piece of white cardstock, I stamped out a ton of the fruit slices and wedges in assorted citrus colors of Memento and VersaMagic inks from Imagine. I thought that doing a whole bunch at once would save me time in the future when I use the rest of the pieces. For this card, I used only a couple of lemons and an orange. I inked the lid up with 2 London Fog and Gray Flannel Memento, to make it look more interesting than using one, flat color. I also stamped the straw, but I used Scrapberry's Stains Ink in Blue . The straw doesn't have a die, so I fussy cut it.
I didn't need to use the jar stamp itself, just the die to begin my shaker. I wanted it to look as though the straw was actually inside the mason jar, so I cut it apart and put part of it under the shaker window, and some of it above the lid. I filled the shaker with my lemon and orange wedges, as well as the "Citrus Twist" Sparkle Blend from Doodles Paper Playground. Then I backed the shaker with light blue cardstock. I thought this helped to add to the "glassy" look.
I stamped my sentiments in Gray Flannel Memento Ink, and I added just a few additional sequins to the top of the card. I put the shaker panel on to a gray card base and considered it done. I think it's adorable and fun, I really do love how the straw looks inside and out of the jar. And who could resist using this perfect Sparkle Blend. I am crazy about all of the teeny tiny fruits!
Be sure to head over to White Rose Crafts LLC to check out the rest of the products from Jillibean Soup. They are all adorable and versatile. I will definitely be using this stamp and die set a lot. 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

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

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 "
