Secret Sister Pendant Day 29 of 31 Days of Halloween

It’s my 7 Year Anniversary!!! It’s been wonderful…and has gone by so fast. I’m thinking we may need to watch our wedding video with the kidlings later. It’s pretty awesome.

A few posts ago, I shared a Beatrix the Witch card from Simply Betty Stamps. I mentioned it was for my Secret Sister in a gift exchange. Today I am going to show you the gift I made her.

I made this pendant by using a fancy Halloween corner stamp from Inkadinkado, and pressing it into translucent clay by Sculpy. After baking, I colored it with Alcohol Inks.

I added a cool star and some pretty beads, and then created the necklace. See the spider in the upper middle of the pendant?

I like how it came out. It’s definitely an unusual piece…but I prefer that, of course! Happily, my Secret Sister loved it! These are so much fun to make, I really encourage you to give these clay pendants a go.

I am off to celebrate my Anniversary now! I promised a couple of pics…here they are. Then and now.

This (above) is one of my favorite pictures from the entire day.


This was just a couple of weeks ago. This is where we got married….the same spot as in the first picture. We had not been back there since our wedding day…we were so happy to return.

February Smeared & Smudged Sketch Challenge

The new Smeared & Smudged challenges are up and ready for you to participate in! I got instantly inspired by Kelli’s card sketch for the month, as I have been working with different ideas for my next “Tarot Card.” Haha! That’s actually pretty funny! If you’ve been checking in over the past couple of weeks, you may have seen my Misty Benson Tarot Set 1 ( Smeared Ink ) cards. I’ve used The World and The Fool so far. Today, I bring you Death. Don’t worry…it’s actually a joyful image…one that I intend to use a lot! First, here’s the sketch. I flipped it and changed the ribbon and embellishment a bit. Can I just start off by saying that it is quite nerve wracking to slice your image??? I have done it a few times in the past, but I always get butterflies when I attempt it again. I colored the image and the card itself using nothing but Distress Inks and my Cut-n-Dry Nibs. My skull button at the top has been colored with Alcohol Inks.   The colors look a little off to m

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
