Pumpkin Pie with Dreamweaver & Spellbinders

Hello! Welcome to Day 3 of the Smeared Ink 31 Days of Halloween. It's also time for the Stampendous Quarterly Hop with Spellbinders. Our theme this week has been Pumpkin Pie so I'll be following that theme while incorporating Dreamweaver Stencils and Spellbinders dies.

I started off by cutting my focal piece out of black cardstock using one of my many Spellbinders dies. Then, using black embossing paste with the Jack O Lanterns stencil. While it was wet, I sprinkled Metallic F/X powder on to the image with a brush. I used Nouveau Orange, Amber Glow, Eye of the Tiger, and Kimono Red. I then heated it with my embossing gun to speed up the drying process. This causes the paste to bubble in a wonderful way. It gives the stenciled image great texture. It really looks like metal now!

Next, I used a VersaMarker watermark pen around the edges of my die cut image. The I heat embossed Seasonings Chunky Metallic Embossing Powder. I LOVE that stuff! I did one side at a time. For my bigger layer, I did the same thing with the edges, and I also stamped some teeny spiders from the Spooky House set.


I had some punchinella that I added to the background, and that added even more metallic goodness to the card. Here are the folks from the Stampendous DT that are sharing projects today. And don't forget! All of the links to the fantastical 31 Days of Halloween are listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a creeptastic day!

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!
