Pucker Up: It’s Halloween!!!

It’s here! It’s here! My favorite day of the year! I can’t believe that the month is over! I am so not ready to stop making Halloweenie projects! Luckily, I don’t have to! But I do hope that many of you will keep checking back with me to see some of the things that I come up with! I had so many things that I still wanted to make for the month…And I really wanted to end it with a bang today. Unfortunately, unforeseen things happened (as they always do), and time slipped away. But again, no one’s sayin’ I can’t make them in December! ;}

So for my 31st offering of the 31 Days of Halloween (sniff!), I bring you a card featuring an image from Strange Skin, and a sentiment from Smeared Ink…who just happen to be 2 of the 3 (yup, 3!) sponsors we have today! The third is Wild Flower Kids.


It’s a pretty simple card, but that fang-tastic Strange Skin image makes it awesome!


I think he turned out rad! He looks so snarky! I thought that the “Pucker up” sentiment was perfect for him! And as you can see, I sprayed bloody drips all over the card using Candy Apple Red Glimmer Mist and my Martha Stewart cupcake stencils. Have I mentioned that my sister Pam and I are actually going to see the devil herself for a taping of her show??? Wicked right? ;}


Here you can see the glimmery goodness of the mist. I just love that stuff! I pop dotted my Drac off the card to for some much needed dimension.

Please be sure to visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers…hopefully not for the last time! I have been so inspired by everyone, and I look forward to seeing what else they create! I am so glad that I got to be a part of this. And don’t forget about our final treats…Kelli’s Blog has all of the info.  Have an inspiring and spooky day! Happy Halloween!!!  )O(

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
