Rainbow Fur

Hello! This week, the Stampendous team is sharing "Jungle Jive" projects. There are a lot of stamps that shout the jungle theme, and my card today uses the Wild Texture 6"x 6" stamp. I decided to go with rainbow fur, because I thought it would be a fun way to show off all the different styles of fur that are on this stamp. What do you think? My full instructions are below. 
Supplies:
Stampendous:
6CR014: Wild Texture
SSC1316: Smile Sentiments
MPW811: Mixed Media White Paper

Other:
My Colors Cardstock: Atlantic Shore
Imagine: Kaleidacolor Inks in Bouquet, VersaFine Clair Ink in Nocturne
Tonic: Stamp Platform
Scrapbook Adhesives: EZ Runner
Directions:
1. Lay the Wild Texture Stamp (stamp side up) on to your work surface.

2. Ink entire stamp with Kaleidacolor Ink in Bouquet.

3. Lay Mixed Media White Paper on top of inked image and carefully rub your hands over it to get the stamp impression on to the paper.

4. Trim image down to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2." This leaves you some "wiggle room" for trimming later, if necessary.

5. Position the sentiment stamp in the stamp positioner. The positioner makes it much easier to stamp the image at equal distances from each other.

6. Stamp the sentiment repeatedly on the background with Nocturne VersaFine Clair ink.

7. Trim down background as necessary. I trimmed mine to 4" x 5 1/4."

8. Create the card base out of Atlantic Shore cardstock, cut to 5 1/2" x 8 1/2."

9. Adhere inked background to card base with EZ Runner.
As much as I love spending a long time coloring flowers or critters, it is also really great to bang out a quick, but graphic, card here and there. This was a pretty quick one to make, and I can see that by just changing out the sentiment, or even the Kaleidacolor Inks used, you can get completely different looks. It would be great to make a set of these with different repeated sentiments to give as a gift. So, would you like to see more "Jungle Jive" projects? Head on over to the Stampendous Blog if you do. I'll be back soon with another projects. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

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 "thank…

April Sparkle Blends Release Hop

Hello! Welcome back! And if you're new here, my name is Alison, and I appreciate you visiting me. Today is a big day, because Doodles Paper Playground is having their April Sparkle Blends Release Hop. This month, 6 brand new Sparkle Blends have come out to join the party, and the Doodles Paper Playground Divas are joined by several very special Guest Designers. So sit back and enjoy all of the wonderful projects we have to share with you. There are prizes to be won along the way too!
My card today features the beautiful new "Diamond" Sparkle Blend which is filled with lovely clear, opalescent clear, and moonshine sequins. There are different sizes, shapes, and styles in the Blend, so even thought it is all technically "clear," it is full of interest. This mix is perfect for the style of shaker I did today, which has a colored focal image in the background. The clear sequins sparkles, but doesn't hide the background. It just adds some magic. I used, what ver…

Holiday Spirit: Aurora Wings Challenge #73

Seasons Greetings! Today I have a project for the latest Aurora Wings Challenge which is "Holiday Spirit." I decided to take the theme as a two-fer. Not only is this a holiday card, but the "spirits" are flowing too.

I used the Wine Sprite for my card, and gave her a Merlot look. I colored her with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. Here's a closeup.

I found a lovely paper in my stash from Wild Rose Studio from their Holly Lane collection. For my sentiment, I had some pretty red glitter cardstock from DCWV that I die cut with an old alphabet set from QuicKutz. I also added some sequins from a few different Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground. The sequins and the sentiment were all glued on with On Point Glue from Imagine.

On my card base, I inked the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink, and then Peeled Paint Distress Ink. After I adhered my background to my base, I added Rock Candy Stickles to the edges. This gave just a touch of sparkle.

So &quo…
