Bewitching Pumpkins: Day 23 of 31 Days of Halloween

Today I bring you a sweet card. Really sweet. One of those things that will probably make you say “Awwwww!” I can hear it already…

Bewitching-Pumpkins-1

So yeah. I don’t  normally do sweet…but who could resist these adorable mice? When I owned my scrapbooking & stamp store, I ordered so many of these mice stamps from Stampabilities. I just love the whole series of them. This, of course, is one of my absolute favorites though!

Bewitching-Pumpkins-2

I have to to my own horn for a minute and say that I really LOVE how this card turned out. The coloring is exactly what I wanted, and I think I was able to blend my colored pencils really well to get a nice smooth finish with a lot of depth. You can click on either of the photos to see it bigger.

I didn’t do anything else to the orange card but ink the edges with a purple chalk ink. This image speaks for itself! I hope you like it…even though it’s not macabre or creepy…it is perfect for Halloweenie!  Please be sure to visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, posted on my sidebar. Have an inspiring day!!!

Christmas in July with Imagine Crafts & Stencil Girl!

Hello! Have you heard? The Imagine AIRs have been hopping with Stencil Girl! If you have been here before, you know I loooove me some stencils, so this collaboration was very exciting for me! The teams are hopping for 3 consecutive Saturdays, and this is week 2. I have the entire list of hop links at the bottom of the post. Be sure you don't miss anyone! I decided to to create an extra large gift tag with my new stencils. Using red cardstock, I taped down the Journal Texture #8 Stencil  and inked it up with Golden Glitz Delicata ink . I promise you, this is the BEST gold ink you will ever use! The Journal stamp only has 2 diamonds on it (it's a 4x4" stencil), so after I inked up the first pair, I moved over the stencil, lined it up, and inked again. Next I wanted to do something textural with the Urban Insiders Star . So I took some evergreen cardstock, taped down the star, and slathered on some yummy Iridescent Green Creative Medium . After the medium dried, I ga

Two Huge Valentine’s Day Hops!

I am in not one, but two Valentine’s Day hops! Not bad for someone that doesn’t even like Valentine’s Day… The first is via Smeared & Smudged . It’s time for our monthly Member Blog Hop! The second was started by Taylor Usry . Please bear with me…this post is long because I am sharing 2 projects and the hop lists are huge. Let’s stat with Smeared & Smudged, shall we? My dear friend Alex and I collaborated on the theme for this month’s S&S Member Hop. Instead of making it a free-for –all, we decided to challenge our members a little…create something Valentine’s Day / love themed, but there is a catch.  Because we are Smeared and Smudged you can not use any of the following: No hearts No red or pink Nothing ‘cute’ unless you make it uncute of course :) Ok, so it’s not dark and scary…but it’s definitely not cute either. I used my colored pencils for the focal image.  It’s from Smeared Ink’s Smitten collection. The “pretty fly” is from the teir teen Style Sa
