Frankenstein Tag: Day 25 of 31 Days of Halloween

I am sharing another tag today. I really enjoy making them. I hope to eventually use this one on a layout. I colored up Frankenstein, from Strange Skin’s Monster Buffs collection (did you know they now have two more famous monster sets???). Check it.

Frankenstein-Tag-1

I didn’t use any paper on this tag, aside from that which I used to print Frankenstein out. I used some raw cardboard, 3 Glimmer Mists (Jack O Lantern, Haunted Shadows, and Lily Pad), a Glimmer Screen (the spider web), my stitch stamp (Stampers Anonymous), a bit of white and black ink, Amazing Glaze, and some fibers. Oh. There’s an eyelet too. Not a lot of stuff to make a pretty cool tag!

Frankenstein-Tag-2

Here’s a close up of Frankenstein. He’s colored with my colored pencils. Isn’t he totally creepy?

Frankenstein-Tag-3

Here I’m trying to show you the lovely Glimmer Mist. If you click on this (or any other) picture), you can see it bigger. You can really see the Amazing Glaze along the edge here.

Frankenstein-Tag-4

You can see a lot of Glimmer in this shot. I love how the colors always blend so nicely together. You can also see just how big the tag is.

I cannot believe that Halloween is less then one week away!!! I have to say, that aside from being amazed at the talent we’ve seen over the past month, I am really going to miss hoping to the fabulous Wicked Bloggers (posted on my sidebar) everyday. I love to leave them all comments…and let’s face it, I love to read some love too! ;} I’m just glad that we can all still view each other’s work not only on the blogs, but on Smeared & Smudged too! Have an inspiring day!

Winged Heart Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Collaboration

Hello! It is he final day for the Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L collaboration. Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L is such a wonderful company with lots of great products. They generously supply the Stampendous Design team with 3D adhesive foam squares and other kits so we can pop up the elements on our cards and bring our projects to life. On my other card for this collaboration, I used the foiling kit (called the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit) and I decided I wanted to use it again today.

I really enjoyed foiling the "merry" on my other card, so I wanted to do that technique again. But I added a bit of a twist this time. I took the heart from the new Wings Die Set and die cut a piece of foam from the Embellishment Kit. I only ran it through my Big Shot machine once, so that the pieces wouldn't fall out of the heart. I carefully pulled off the main part of the heart's front protective paper and applied blue foil to it. Then, while keeping all of the small bi…
