Day 11 of 31 Days: XOXO

Halloween is in 20 days!!! I can't believe it! I really need to get working on my family's costumes. But for now, allow me to share with you my latest creation featuring Dilly Beans images.

For this card, I used Mrs. Skellington Framed and Mr. Skellington Framed. Don''t they look happy together?

I used watercolor markers and Copics for this duo. I spent a lot of time on their heads...I really loved mixing the greens together and playing with the shades.

I found some fun paper from Prima that I thought looked really great with The Skellingtons. The "XOXO" is from the same Prima pack. It's a fun and kooky Halloween card, that shows a little bit of love. Which, yeah, I think is totally appropriate since my Anniversary is 2 days before Halloween.
Now it's time for you to keep hopping! You can head over to Christine's Blog to see what she's created for today. The entire Wicked Blogger Hop List is on my side bar.

Your images are coloured beautifully, I don't think I've seen watercolour markers. Are they hard to use?

I love Mr. and Mrs. Skellington! They are made for each other! LOL I guess that was sort of an unintentional pun. Love the colors you used... very fun piece!
Yes, they do look happy together in a ghoulish sort of way. Very cute.

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Blog Hop Finale

Hello! It's time for the finale of the DecoArt and Stampendous blog hop. Have you enjoyed yourself this week? I bet you've got some new techniques that you want to try. I know I do! I am super stoked about my project for today. And it solves a dilemma that we've had in my kids' room for a while.

What you see above is 2 pieces of PVC. And some fab DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics! So, what am I doing with PVC, you ask? Well, my mom bought my son a light saber(Darth Vader's) for Christmas, and he wanted to display it, but we weren't really sure where in his room, and how. I wanted something cooler than hooks, and we thought it would be neat to have the light saber vertical, instead of horizontal. Plus, there was a fab spot for it if it hung in that direction. So, my husband came up with the PVC pip idea, and I altered the pieces.



The end cap holds the base, and the small piece of pipe holds up near the end. And the 2 pieces are spaced out enough so that it's easy…

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…
