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!

Winged Heart Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Collaboration

Hello! It is he final day for the Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L collaboration. Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L is such a wonderful company with lots of great products. They generously supply the Stampendous Design team with 3D adhesive foam squares and other kits so we can pop up the elements on our cards and bring our projects to life. On my other card for this collaboration, I used the foiling kit (called the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit) and I decided I wanted to use it again today.

I really enjoyed foiling the "merry" on my other card, so I wanted to do that technique again. But I added a bit of a twist this time. I took the heart from the new Wings Die Set and die cut a piece of foam from the Embellishment Kit. I only ran it through my Big Shot machine once, so that the pieces wouldn't fall out of the heart. I carefully pulled off the main part of the heart's front protective paper and applied blue foil to it. Then, while keeping all of the small bi…
