Dreamweaver Extra Week of Posts: Day 30 of 31 Days of Halloween

Greetings! I have a super quick card to share today, using a Dilly Beans skull and Dreamweaver Stencils' Nesting Frames. All month long, the Dream Team has been serving up all sorts of holiday goodness. Not just Halloween, but Thanksgiving and Christmas too. I of course, had to stick with Halloween.


I colored her up with colored pencils, and used two of the Nesting Frames dies from Dreamweaver Stencils. Have you been keeping track with who has won this month over at Dreamweaver? Did you win? What stencil did you choose? Are you hooked???


How great is my base card? Scored a pack of them (with different designs) at Michaels. $2.99 for 40! I may need to get anther pack. My fab-u-lous velvet ribbon is from May Arts. That's about it for me today! Please be sure to visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, all listed in my side bar. Plus, the whole Dream Team is posting today as well!

Skull Charm: Day 29 of 31 Days of Halloween

Ack! It is SO close to the end! Today is Day 29 of the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween. Today I have a super quick pendant that I made, using one of the Tim Holtz stamps that I won from last year's 31 Days. I used this image once before this month, but it's so cool that I just had to use it again.

Here's a photo of the stamp on my block, and the charm next to it. Yup...I used Shrinky Dinks! I LOVE using them, and it's been a couple of months since I have, so I thought this was a good time to break them out.

Keep in mind, that since this stamp has writing, I'll only be able to wear it with the matte side showing. I like the look, though I prefer the glossy side. If you make these yourself, try to avoid using an image with writing. I stamped the image with Staz-On, and I used just 2 colored pencils. Super quick. Just for fun, here's how cool the glossy side is....it didn't flatten out perfectly, but I'm totally col with that.

Happy Halloween: Day 28 of 31 Days of Halloween

Hello there!I have a fun card to share with you today using the Aurora Wings image, "Happy Halloween."

I colored this cutie with a combo of alcohol markers and watercolor markers. I made it for the Aurora Wings challenge of creating a project using Halloween colors.

He's got quite a lot of candy in that Jack O Lantern! I used some fun papers from DCWV and Core'dinations. My 2 oval Long Oval Nesting Dies are from Dreamweaver Stencils. I also used some orange Stickles to add a bit of sparkle.

Thanks for checking out my project today! Please be sure to visit the ret of the Wicked Bloggers, all listed in my side bar. Have a fang-tastic day!

Ravens Waiting: Day 27 of 31 Days of Halloween

Hello! It's time for Day 27 of the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween. Where has this month gone??? Today I made a project for the latest challenge from A Day for Daisies. The theme is Anything Halloween, and  used their Ravens Waiting digi. I LOVE this company. It's certainly one of my favorites.

Isn't this a fantastic image??? I colored the image itself with Spectrum Noir markers, and the background was done with watercolors.

You don't need many colors for this image...but I look forward to experimenting a bit with it with some unusual colors.

I used my favorite punch (Drippy Goo), and 2 dies from Dreamweaver Stencils, called Nesting Frames. My sentiment is from Smeared Ink's Quoth the Raven set. Please be sure to visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, all listed in my sidebar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a creep-tastic day!

Eye See You: Day 26 of 31 Days

We are SO close to the end of the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween. I have so many more projects that I want to make, and very few days left to make/showcase them. Well, with all of the chaos of the month, I didn't post my latest card for the Dilly Beans challenge. Thankfully, my project has been doe for a while, so it is on the Dilly Beans Blog. The newest challenge is to make a round card or use lots of circles. I went with the latter.

I always use this fantastic eyeball for the 31 Days. It's too cool to leave out. It's from Inkadinkado, and it's one of my favorite stamps. I paired it up with one of Megan's fantastic Big Eye Girls, and I colored her with my Spectrum Noir markers.

I love coloring these Big Eye Girls. Playing with colors and shadows is so fun with them.

I used a sentiment also from Inkadinkado, and irRESISTables spray from Imagine Crafts. It's glossy and has a great texture to it. Love that stuff! I hope you'll play along with Dilly Beans for this challenge. Please be sure to visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, all listed in my sidebar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a spooktacular day!

H is for Heikkila: Day 25 of 31 Days of Halloween

Welcome to Day 25 of the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween! Today I have something other than a paper craft. Hooray!!! I have been working on this piece for a while, because I had to allow for drying in between laying down the patterns. You'll see what I mean....


This pressed board "H" I found at Michaels for about a quarter on clearance. It's about 14" long. I think I may hang it on my front door or attach it to a wreath and then hang it to my door.

I used a bunch of Dreamweaver Stencils and a couple of stamps too. There's the Bats, the Owl on Oak, Damask, Houndstooth, Spider, and the Spider Web. The rest are stamps.

I used a little glossy black Embossing Paste, some black ink, and some fabulous black glittery embossing powder.

I would work on opposite sides of the H so that I wouldn't touch the wet spots. Please be sure to visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, all listed in my sidebar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a creep-tastic day!

Halloween Chevron: Day 24 of 31 Days of Halloween

Greetings! I have some glittery goodness to share with you today! I used one of Dreamweaver Stencils' newest stencils- Chevron Background. I used the Double Glitter technique. Have you seen it before? Feast your eyes on this.......

If you love glitter like I do, then you need to try this technique! HERE is a great video tutorial by Wendy Jordan.

I wish my orange glitter was a little brighter, so that you'd see more of a contrast, but I still think it looks ok. I highly recommend using as fine a glitter as possible when doing this technique, to be sure that you get into all of the teeny places and you get better coverage. My purple glitter is much finer than the orange, and hopefully you can see that it has much nicer coverage.

I kept the rest of the card pretty simple. A sentiment from Recollections (Michaels' own brand), and a cool trim I had, all mounted on to black cardstock. Please be sure to check out the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, all listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a spooktacular day!
