Snowglobe Grumpie: Day 2 of 12 Days of Christmas

Greetings on this lovely Friday! I still cannot believe that is the last month of the year! Today I bring you my second card for the Smeared & Smudged 12 Days of Christmas. And not only is is Smeared Ink Day (where we are challenged to use only Smeared Ink Stamps on your projects), but Friday is also my day to show off some of the sick and twisted goodness that is Smeared Ink.  So, on to the goods…


Ok, I didn’t use only Smeared Ink stamps…but I used two! The adorable Grumpie and sentiment is from the Lil Grumpies set, and the snowglobe is from Inkadinkado. I have had it forever, and I love putting all sorts of things in it. You may just see it again this month!


I stamped the snowglobe first, then tried to get the Grumpie to sit on the base of the globe. It’s not easy! But, I think he’s fine where he is. I then embossed the globe with glitter powder for the globe itself, and gold for the base. Then I colored the Grumpie in with colored pencils. Phoenix told me to make him blue…so blue it is!


I used my Martha Stewart cracked edge border and corner punches for the side and I embossed more glitter powder on to the blue cardstock.


Here you can see the glitter better, as well as the pretty sheen on the metallic gold cardstock that I used. Oh! And I inked the edge of my card with grey ink, which really added a lot to the final look of the card.

Please be sure to visit the rest of the Jolly Bloggers, posted on my sidebar. I am so looking forward to what everyone has been cooking up! Especially Alex, who has teased us that her project for today is gonna be rad! I’m off to go and see!!! Have an inspiring day!!!

Love is Love with Nathalie Kalbach and Friends

The Stampendous team is showcasing the fabulous stamps and stencils from Nathalie Kalbach this week, and some of Nathalie's friends have been joining us. There are 3 prize packaages up for grabs, and anyone can win! Visit the Stampendous Blog for full details. I have been thinking a lot about the recent tragedy to the LGBT community in Orlando, and I decided to use Nathalie's Urban Scribble set for today's project. I started off with the foam stamp (the blank side) and colored a rainbow on it using my Tombow Dual Brush markers. I sprayed the foam stamp with a little water to re-wet the colors, and get some nice splotches. I applied the stamp, then I went back with the detail stamp and inked it up with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then, using the stencil that comes in the Urban Scribble set, plus the Picasso tool, I stenciled some pixelated clouds in the background. I hand wrote "Love is Love." I decided to not make this a card..but rather some
