Day 1 of 12 Days of Creepmas, and DICC #43

Hello! Can you believe it's December 1st? I sure can't! Not only do I have a brand new Desert Island Crafters Challenge, but it's is officially Day 1 of the Smeared & Smudged 12 Days of Creepmas! I participated in this last year, and now it's gotten even bigger and better! For full details, please visit the Smeared & Smudged Blog. I am combining my Day 1 project with my DICC project. Especially since Smeared Ink is our sponsor this time around! You could win a $15 gift certificate! Here's the Itinerary.


  1. Creepy Christmas
  2. Anything But A Card
  3. Black & White
  4. Blood Red
  5. Gems
  6. Ribbon
  7. Glitter
  8. Bah Humbug
  9. One Layer Card
  10. Let it Snow!!

For my card, I used one of the Occasions Grumpies. 

Isn't this guy cute? I love the Grumpies. Off of the Itinerary, I used #'s 1, 4, 5, 6, and 7. 


I used watercolor markers and Copics to color him in. And check out my 3 gems. I love how they magnify the Stickles I used to adhere them to the card.


My sentiment is from The Occasions Grumpies set too. I hope you will play along with us at DICC. And, please be sure to give some love to all of the Jolly Bloggers, listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a creep-tastic day!

I understand why he is so grumpie trying to find that one dead lightbulb on the 100 string light. The sentiment is terrific.

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!
