Smeared & Smudged Meets The Greeting Farm for a Super Cool Blog Hop!

Quite a title huh? I am super stoked for this post today!!! One company that I totally love-The Greeting Farm- is hooking up with Smeared & Smudged today for an awesome Blog Hop!

This is the very first stop in the hop! You will be traveling to almost the entire S&S Design Team, and I promise you…you will be inspired!!! I have TWO cards to share with you…so let’s get started!

TGF-Hop1

Say “Hello!” to Thursday! She is one of TGF’s Creepers and I gotta say, I love that whole collection! I am so pleased to get to work some magic on Ms. Thursday here…and I will need to add to my Creeper collection!

TGF-Hop2

Here’s a close up. You can click on any of my photos to see them bigger. I colored her in with my fabulous colored pencils. I had a grand ole time picking out the colors with Nix for this one! I think we rocked the colors out, don’t you???

TGF-Hop3

I used a mess of different papers… I love to combine wacky patterns together and come out with something unexpected and cool. Check out the purple paper with the rain dots! It actually comes that way!

So I was so inspired by Thursday, that I just had to make another card for this Hop. Here’s my second card, using Mojo Monday’s latest sketch: #142.

TGF-Hop4

I love this one! It’s a little bit darker…more in the realm of goth, which is so very me! There’s a lot going on with this card so you may just wanna see it bigger!

TGF-Hop5

Coloring this chick is so much fun! I would totally wear this get-up! Yes, even the hat! I would rock it! ;}

TGF-Hop6

You can see more of the elements I used in this pic. Staples, ribbon, border punch, etc. Do ya think it’s rad???

Now let’s get down to business. Over at Smeared & Smudged, you can win Thursday for yourself! how??? It’s really quite simple! Join our little group if you haven’t already, and play along with this month’s Rock N Rolla and/or Oh! The Horror Challenges. One person from each category will be randomly selected to win Thursday, courtesy of the super fabulous The Greeting Farm!!!

There’s another way to play along to…and it’s just for this hop! The Greeting Farm decided they wanted to do even more, so they are hosting their own little contest. Go through this entire blog hop, and leave a comment for our wonderful Design Team members. Once you’re done, leave a comment at The Greeting Farm’s bloggy. The addy is HERE. Once you do that, you have a chance to win there too! So many prizes, so little time! So let’s get hopping!!!

Your next stop is to my awesome-tastic friend and S&S Co-Captain, Kelli. And, just in case you need it, I have the entire hop list below. Happy Hopping! Have an inspiring day! BIG thanks to Jessica at The Greeting Farm for setting this hop up with me! It’s been a pleasure working with you!!!

Christmas Package

Hello! This week, the Stampendous Design Team will be sharing projects that fit the theme, "Dear Santa, I've Been Good!" I used the sweet Christmas Package stencil (which frankly, can be used for plenty of other occasions too!), and a scrap I had leftover from the Chevron Stencil. Check out the full tutorial below.



Supplies:
Stampendous: 
DWLL466: Christmas Package
DWLX7026: Chevron Stencil
MGK01: Fall Micro Glitter Kit
MGK02: Christmas Micro Glitter Kit
DWDGP: Gold Embossing Paste
DWDGWP: Glossy White Embossing Paste
DWDPK: Palette Knife

Other: 
My Colors Cardstock: Dare Devil, Parrot
Molotow: 2mm Round Pen in Signal White
EK Success: Corner Rounder
Beacon Adhesives: Zip Dry

Directions:
1. Tape Christmas Package stencil to Dare Devil cardstock. Tape off the bow so that you don't get paste on it. Paste the box with your Palette Knife and Glossy White Embossing Paste. Remove stencil to wash. While the paste is still wet, sprinkle Lime Micro Glitter from the Hal…

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!
