Day 13 of 31 Days: Simple Kraft Card

Hello hello! It's Saturday the 13th! Yeah, not as exciting as Friday the 13th, but it's Saturday, so who cares? Today I am bringing you a card that took me literally less than 5 minutes to make. And sometimes, don't we all just need to bang out a card really quickly? So, here's my offering for the day.

This is very similar to a series I did last year for the 31 Days. But I had used cream colored cardstock and different stamps. I also didn't add in the little details like I did here.

I simply smudged some orange ink where the pumpkin was going to be, then stamped (my image is from Inkadinkado) on top of it. I took a Sakura Stardust pen (can you see the shimmer?), and a white pen and highlighted some of the negative space in the image. Then I just drew in a border. Easy! But elegant.

I may do another couple of card like this and make a complete set. Even though it's easy, it's a lot of fun to make. Now it's time for you to hop along to the rest of the Wicked Bloggers! They are all listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a fang-tastic day!

This card is so pretty - 5 minutes, no way. I never thought of putting colour down before stamping but will have to try that.

Maybe a quickie but you are definitely on the right track with ideas! I have a theory that I totally believe that only great designers can knock off something this good that fast!!

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…
