You Creep Me Out…Day 7 of 31 Days of Halloween

Gasp! I am sharing only one project with you today! I know! It’s crazy! But don’t worry (snicker) I’ll be doubling up again soon, I assure you. ;) Fridays have been named Smeared Ink Days, for the 31 Days of Halloween. We have been challenged to use only Smeared Ink stamps on our Friday creations. This isn’t mandatory, but since I have a new set to play with, I just couldn’t resist! My kids and I have been wanting the Creepy Lil Grumpies set for quite some time now, and it finally arrived the other day. The kids are itching to color up the sets I stamped out for them, but I got a chance to color a bit, and this is what I came up with.


Before I get into the care, I just have to say “Finally!” My purples look purple! I wonder if this means I need to steal my sis’ Nikon every time I use purple on a project?!

Anywho…this little Grumpie doesn’t like you. In fact…you creep him out. I don’t know what you did to make him feel this way, but I think you need to figure out how to make him feel better, quick!


Look at him! He’s so scared! Poor guy. I hope he cleaned out that pumpkin really good before he jumped into it. Pumpkin guts…ewwww!


So of course my Grumpie and sentiment are both from Smeared Ink. I used my Tattered Angels Glimmer Screen in the background to give it some pizazz, and a really cool EK Success border punch. I kept it pretty simple here. Probably because I am battling a nasty cold and haven’t been sleeping well (thanks to my children)…so my brain is on the fritz right now.

That’s all for now. Remember, the rest of the Wicked Bloggers are listed in my side bar.  Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a spook-tacualr day!!!

ADORABLE, and the sentiment (and your post) cracked me up. Except the part about you being sick. Feel better fast, girly! xxD

Such a brightly colored little gumpie - don't know why he doesn't like me 'cept I'm here to make that pumpkin into a pie (evil giggles)! So nice that your children enjoy your stamping too.

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!
