Marcy Mummy and Moses- Spunky Spooks

Did you hear??? The Spunky Spooks have escaped! They are on the loose before our regular Friday release day! What does that mean? That you could be the proud owner of this new collection from Simply B Stamps right now!!! No need to wait until Friday this time! But, the Design team is still sharing our latest creations with you. And tomorrow, we will have a blog hop! So who's up today? Marcy Mummy and her scorpion pet, Moses. Normally, I don't like scorpions at all, but wait until you see this guy! He's such a cutie!

This is my favorite image in this collection. I love all things Egyptian. And Marcy is so pretty! I colored her completely with Distress Inks, except for her hair, which was done with watercolor markers.

The ink around Marcy is from Color Box. For this challenge, I used the April Smeared and Smudged card sketch. I liked this sketch a lot. It was really easy to work with.

I was super excited to make this card, because I got to break out my Judi Kins hieroglyphics stamp. I don't get to use it often enough! My sentiment is from SBS. And see that small piece with the spots? Phoenix has taken a liking to decorating white pieces of paper for me, so that I can use them on my projects. And this piece worked perfectly, I thought. He was very happy to see it on my card.

Now it's time for you to see the rest of Marcy and Moses' incarnations. So hop on over to the SBS Blog. And tomorrow, please be sure to join us for a hop using the last image in this collection. But remember, you can snag the Spunky Spooks right now! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring 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. 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

Remembering Aletha

Greetings, Friends. This post today is part of a very special blog hop. We are celebrating the life of an amazingly talented artist and friend. The crafting community lost Aletha Jane Williams on May 5, 2019. Those of us that worked with her on Design Teams or on Challenge Blogs all agree that she was one of the sweetest and most talented women we knew. We are not here to mourn her loss though. This hop is happening in conjunction with a very special celebration of her life and her art that her husband Bob is holding in her home city of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Please join us in honoring our incredibly creative friend Aletha . My card features the "Remembering Aletha" Sprite, which Mitzi (owner and artist of Aurora Wings ) created specifically for this hop. She is generously giving the digi away to all, over on her blog. This sweet Sprite looks so much like Aletha, and I know she would have been honored. If you download this digi for yourself, please be sure to give a huge "
