You Creep Me Out…Day 7 of 31 Days of Halloween

Gasp! I am sharing only one project with you today! I know! It’s crazy! But don’t worry (snicker) I’ll be doubling up again soon, I assure you. ;) Fridays have been named Smeared Ink Days, for the 31 Days of Halloween. We have been challenged to use only Smeared Ink stamps on our Friday creations. This isn’t mandatory, but since I have a new set to play with, I just couldn’t resist! My kids and I have been wanting the Creepy Lil Grumpies set for quite some time now, and it finally arrived the other day. The kids are itching to color up the sets I stamped out for them, but I got a chance to color a bit, and this is what I came up with.


Before I get into the care, I just have to say “Finally!” My purples look purple! I wonder if this means I need to steal my sis’ Nikon every time I use purple on a project?!

Anywho…this little Grumpie doesn’t like you. In fact…you creep him out. I don’t know what you did to make him feel this way, but I think you need to figure out how to make him feel better, quick!


Look at him! He’s so scared! Poor guy. I hope he cleaned out that pumpkin really good before he jumped into it. Pumpkin guts…ewwww!


So of course my Grumpie and sentiment are both from Smeared Ink. I used my Tattered Angels Glimmer Screen in the background to give it some pizazz, and a really cool EK Success border punch. I kept it pretty simple here. Probably because I am battling a nasty cold and haven’t been sleeping well (thanks to my children)…so my brain is on the fritz right now.

That’s all for now. Remember, the rest of the Wicked Bloggers are listed in my side bar.  Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a spook-tacualr day!!!

ADORABLE, and the sentiment (and your post) cracked me up. Except the part about you being sick. Feel better fast, girly! xxD

Such a brightly colored little gumpie - don't know why he doesn't like me 'cept I'm here to make that pumpkin into a pie (evil giggles)! So nice that your children enjoy your stamping too.

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

Two Huge Valentine’s Day Hops!

I am in not one, but two Valentine’s Day hops! Not bad for someone that doesn’t even like Valentine’s Day… The first is via Smeared & Smudged . It’s time for our monthly Member Blog Hop! The second was started by Taylor Usry . Please bear with me…this post is long because I am sharing 2 projects and the hop lists are huge. Let’s stat with Smeared & Smudged, shall we? My dear friend Alex and I collaborated on the theme for this month’s S&S Member Hop. Instead of making it a free-for –all, we decided to challenge our members a little…create something Valentine’s Day / love themed, but there is a catch.  Because we are Smeared and Smudged you can not use any of the following: No hearts No red or pink Nothing ‘cute’ unless you make it uncute of course :) Ok, so it’s not dark and scary…but it’s definitely not cute either. I used my colored pencils for the focal image.  It’s from Smeared Ink’s Smitten collection. The “pretty fly” is from the teir teen Style Sa
