Day 6 of 31 Days of Halloween and World Card Making Day!

Today is a 3-fer with one all inclusive card. Not only is it World Card Making Day, plus day 6 of the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween, but it is also Mad Hatter Day. The Bombshell Gals decided it would be fun to celebrate World Card Making Day. This year, WCMD coincides with Mad Hatter Day so we thought it would be fun to make projects that contain at least 1 hat. And of course, I needed to make it Halloweenie! I decided to go with the Calaveras Fiesta set.


The Calaveras Fiesta set comes with 4 different hats. And I couldn't decide which of those hats to use...so I decided to use them all! Plus I added the pirate's hat from Pirate's Life.


I constructed this card, by starting off with cutting out the wheel and attaching it to the card base with a brad. I made sure to keep the wheel sticking out past the card, so that it's easy to spin.



When I figured out where I wanted my skeleton to be, I punched out a hole where the hats should be on the green paper. I attached the green paper with foam, so that it's raised above the wheel.


I colored all of my images with watercolor markers and Copics. And I kept the rest of the card pretty simple. But I did add one of the plain banners from the Banner Sayings set. The letters were stamped from an Inkadinkado set I had.


This was a lot of fun to create! And I was surprised at how easy it was to construct. Wouldn't this make a great invite for a Halloween party? I hope you enjoy World Card Making Day, Mad Hatter Day and of course Day 6 of 31 Days! Please be sure to visit the Bombshell Blog to see what the rest of the Design Team made. And of course, the entire Wicked Blogger hop list is listed on my sidebar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a creep-tatsic day!

***I had gotten a few questions about my tile from yesterday. The image was printed on to tissue paper. You need to tape the tissue paper to regular paper, so that your printer won't jam. Print on the matte side. I sealed the tile with 3 coats of Matte Mod Podge and 3 coats of Krylon Matte Acrylic Sealer. Yes, it is a totally useable coaster. It takes the condensation from glasses with no problem. Let me know if you have any other questions. I'm so happy you liked my tile!

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
