Desert Islands Crafter’s Challenge #9 Cyndi’s Itinerary

It’s the first of June (Wow! Can you believe it?), so that means it’s time for another Desert Island’s Crafter’s Challenge! This time around, we went to one of our very own DT Members, Cyndi, for an itinerary.

Cyndi's Itinerary:
1. Use glimmer Mist or similar
2. Orange
3. Something recycled
4. Pull out your scraps!
5. Chipboard
6. Anything but a card
7. 2+ images
8. Glitter or Bling
9. Pull out those chalks
10. A hand-made embellishment

So what does all this mean? Easy! You have now been challenged to create a project using at least 3 of the items listed above. Then you can upload your creation to the DICC Blog. Now you have a chance at creating your very own itinerary for us to create with!

I loved Cyndi’s list. It was thought provoking and unique. And, I am very happy with my finished project! I used items 1, 2, 4, 7, 8 & 9 for my card.


As soon as I saw this list, I knew I needed to break out my pumpkin Glimmer Screen and Clear Stamps from Tattered Angels. And of course, I had to use Jack O’ Lantern Glimmer Mist with them! I also added that creepy ass spider (also from Tattered Angels) too. Ew. But, it totally works on this card!


I added some chalk to the stem, leaves and ripped edge of the top layer.  Then, I brushed on some Haunted Shadows Glimmer Mist to the outer edge of the main card. And, I added (with Diamond Stickles) some gold chunky glitter that I had gotten from Terra a while ago.

I purposely left the upper right corner of the card empty. As someone that often likes to fill in space (just ask my husband!), I found that empty area a little unsettling. And perfect for a wicked little Halloween card. What do you think?


I hope you will play along with us at DICC. For some more inspiration, please visit the rest of the gals; links below.

Also, I am entering this in the latest Macabre Monday Challenge. The challenge is E.M.O. You need to create something with items thatstart with those 3 letters. So… E is for Edges (torn). M is for Mist, and O is for Orange. Fun challenge!

Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Looks awesome Alison! I really like the effect on the pumpkin. I like the mists, but have trouble with my misters. They like to drop instead of mist. Yours looks marvelous!
Oh Wow! Awesome. And to quote the kid who just wandered by "Awesome tarantual!"
Gorgeous work Alison! Thanks so much for playing along with our EMO challenge at HDH :D

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

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Hop

This is a very exciting week for the Stampendous team! We are hanging out with the ultra cool Deco Art Mixed Media team, each using each other's products to share some incredible creations with you. These companies go hand in hand, so using each other's products is easy. And the results are amazing. We are of course featuring Andy Skinner's stamps, who is the DecoArt International Education Coordinator.  And yup, there are prizes! But I want you to go to the Stampendous Blog for all of that info. The link is at the bottom of the post. Now, on to my project. I made a cool wall hanging today. I started off with a piece of MDF and I drilled 2 holes, and covered it with DecoArt's white Gesso. After it dried, I used Andy's Alcohol and Media fluid Acrylics Layering Technique. You can check out his how-to video HERE . Needless to say, it's a great technique, and I loved doing it. Once I finished with the aforementioned technique, I sealed the piece w
