DICC #18 & Day 15 of 31 Days of Halloween

Hello fellow Crafters (interpret how you like!). I have only 1 project for you today! Such a slacker, I know! ;) Today is the newest Desert Islands Crafters Challenge, and I am combining it with my latest 31 Days project. If you were here yesterday, you saw that I had previewed 2 more cards with the new Teen Scene Christmas collection from Simply Betty Stamps. But I was missing one. Christian (as Jack Skellington) on his own. Well, he worked perfectly for the new DICC challenge, so I decided to save him for today. Here’s this run’s itinerary.

The Itinerary

1 Halloween

2 SBS Image

3 Favourite Colour

4 Found Object

5 Candy colours

6 Not Square

7 Stripes

8 Shades of Grey

9 Bats & Spiders

10 The UnDead

I managed to use #’s 1, 2, 3, (purple), 6, 7, 9 (spiders), and 10.

I loved the part in Nightmare Before Christmas when Jack is trying to cut out snowflakes and he makes a spider instead! Poor Jack! And can I just say, that I am SO happy that Zero has made an appearance, as he is by far one of my favorite characters in the flick!

I used my markers for this. I’m not sure if you noticed, but I also used the latest Deconstructed Sketch for my layout. Jen’s sketches are always so inspiring!

The “Doh!” is from SBS’ Zombie Teen phrases. I thought it was really funny here.

And now, I bid you adieu. It’s time for you to visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers and the DICC gals. All are listed in my side bar. I’m off to make some more pendants! ;) Thanks for stopping by. Have an spook-tacular day!

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.

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!
