You’re Standing on My Tail

I am totally stoked to bring you my very first card featuring Lil’ Grumpies from Smeared Ink. I love this set! I have a feeling that this will definitely become one of my “go to” sets! Here’s my card:

Tail1

How great are these guys??? And they come with some of the funniest sentiments. Like this one here…”You’re standing on my tail.” How great is that??? And if you remember my Damon card from last week (and I am quite certain many of you do!), the “Suck it up” was from this set as well.

Tail2

Here’s a close up of my coloring. Done with my colored pencils by Spectracolor! I pop dotted the purple Grumpie. I really think these guys are hilarious!

I also love that the sentiments are done in a typewriter font. So cool! If you haven’t checked out the Smeared Ink line, please do! They are all on 8.5x11 unmounted rubber sheets. Let me just say this…this is the thickest rubber I have ever come across! You will LOVE the quality of these sets!

Wanna see more of the Lil’ Grumpies? Well, I’ll have some more to show you shortly (I already made 2 other cards with them!), and there are a ton of amazing examples on the Smeared and Smudged group. Go and see! Have an inspiring day!!!

Dude. For real. I left a freakin' comment last night, like 10 30. I also left one for another pal. NEITHER OF YOU HAVE YOUR COMMENTS. WTF??? It's a freakin conspiracy. someone is hacking into my computer.
Anyway, I love this!!! I told you, you color like IDK what. And the paper makes the grumpies and the coloring POP.
Awesome x1000. Bitchin' for sure!!

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Blog Hop Finale

Hello! It's time for the finale of the DecoArt and Stampendous blog hop. Have you enjoyed yourself this week? I bet you've got some new techniques that you want to try. I know I do! I am super stoked about my project for today. And it solves a dilemma that we've had in my kids' room for a while.

What you see above is 2 pieces of PVC. And some fab DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics! So, what am I doing with PVC, you ask? Well, my mom bought my son a light saber(Darth Vader's) for Christmas, and he wanted to display it, but we weren't really sure where in his room, and how. I wanted something cooler than hooks, and we thought it would be neat to have the light saber vertical, instead of horizontal. Plus, there was a fab spot for it if it hung in that direction. So, my husband came up with the PVC pip idea, and I altered the pieces.



The end cap holds the base, and the small piece of pipe holds up near the end. And the 2 pieces are spaced out enough so that it's easy…
