Simple Halloween: Day 16 of 31 Days of Halloween

Hello again! If you’ve been following along with my posts for this month, you’d know that I have had a LOT of projects to share. My posts often contain 2 or 3 projects. And those projects take me a long time to make. Today is different. I went to the opposite end of the spectrum. Something super simple, yet still “screams” Halloween.

I have a beautiful stamp set from Inkadinkado with many beautiful pumpkins. This is one of them. On this single layered, cream card, I smudged some Ripe Persimmon Distress Ink where the pumpkin would be, with a cosmetic sponge. Then I stamped the image on top of that with Staz-On. I made a simple border with a black marker, then I added some Diamond Stickles to the swirls coming out of the pumpkin.

Simple, yet effective. It’s nice to make quick cards like this. It’s a different way of thinking. Making sure there is just enough happening to make sure the card is still interesting.

Please be sure to stop by the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, all listed in my side bar. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a spook-tacular day!

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.

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
