My Heart and Christmas!

It’s Day 13 of the 31 Days of Halloween!  It’s almost halfway over! Already??? So I have a new Halloween project to share, of course, but in addition, I have 2 more previews for the new Simply Betty Stamps Teen Scene Christmas release.

I am super duper stoked about the Halloween project. I have wanted to start doing this literally, during the last 31 Days of Halloween. And I never found time! Well, now I am hooked, and you may just be seeing a ton more of these. So, I hope you like what I’ve done… I give you…My Heart.

What do you think??? I used the heat from Smeared Ink’s Quoth the Raven, and stamped it in clay (the color is called Translucent…which it is. The light goes thought it beautifully!). I baked it, and then colored it with alcohol inks.

The color is more saturated than it looks here, the other 2 photos are much more true to life, but I wanted you to see that all of the detail in the stamp shows.

Of course, having a plain old heart would never do for me…so I broke out my beading supplies and started to play! I even dug up an “A” and a “G” for my husband and…colored them with alcohol ink too (because the white they were wild have been awful here!) . Ooh, this was fun! Thinking I may need to make some for my Etsy shop. Personalized hearts! This is my type of heart…

On to the Simply Betty Stamps preview! 

 

Here’s Miller as Scrooge. I chose to go pretty traditional with the colors (surprise!). My paper is all from DCWV.

I colored Miller in with my watercolor markers. He’s very handsome, even though he looks a bit sad.

My sentiment is from Inkadinkado, and I embossed it with Seafoam White powder from Ranger.

Who doesn’t love snowmen?  I think this is a sweet image! Rio has done such a great job with her wintry friend, right? And look, Edgar has come to say hello!

My sentiment here is from StampInsanity. I thought it worked perfectly with this image.

I added some pops of pink, just for that little bit of unexpected that I always go for. The rest of the SBS gals (and GDT Kelli!) have come up with some great projects. Please visit the SBS Blog to see them all!

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!
