SISC78, S&S Day 20 of 31, & SBS Day 4 of 12

That’s a lot of numbers in my title! Today I have 2 projects for you. The first is the latest StampInsanity Challenge, and the second is a combo for the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween and the Simply Betty Stamps 12 Days of Halloween.

The StampInsanity Challenge is Halloween Treats. More specifically…how do you trick out a treat? Here’s what I came up with.

I used Witch Morgan, and made her a decoration for a lollypop!

I colored her in with my watercolor markers, and cut her our in a circle, to mimic the lollypop.

I attached straps to the back using scraps of paper, and slid on the pop. Easy peasy and totally cute!

For the 4th Day of SBS’ 12 Days of Halloween, we are to use 4 skeletons. I chose to work with Draco the Ghost Gentleman (who looks like a skeleton), and the dancing skeletons from my Bombshell Stamps Retro Cowgirl set.

Look ma! No kitties! ;) I colored Draco in with my pencils. I like that I kept the whole card in the gray family.

Have I mentioned how the collection that Draco is from (Steampunk Halloween), is my all time favorite Simply Betty Stamps set? Just look at how cool he is!

The little skeletons look like minions to me…about to do Draco’s bidding. Hmmm…wonder what that could be? The “Halloween” is from Basic Grey.

Please drop by the StampInsanity Blog for more treats that have been tricked out. I am sure they will inspire you! And be sure to hop by the SBS blog, and the rest of the Wicked Bloggers. All players in these 3 groups are listed in my sidebar. Thanks for stopping by! Have a spook-tacular day!

Fab projects, Alison! I think Draco looks like a skellie too but when I asked my DH, he said no so I added another skllie on my card. Now I wish I hadn't because the underlining is confusing. Yours ROCKS! xxD

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!
