Day 6 of 12, Wicked Wednesday & A Day for Daisies

Hello! It's Day 6 of the Smeared & Smudged 12 Days of Creepmas. I made another card for it. I am also sharing a project that I made for a couple of challenges. Let's start with Creepmas. But I tell you...the creep factor for this card is going to vary depending on who is looking at it.

Have you every been outside at dusk, when it's recently snowed? It's soooooo quiet. And the landscape looks so very different with all that snow. Then, you hear a rustle coming from somewhere. And you see a bright splotch of red against a white and black backdrop. It's a lone cardinal in a birch tree. Not too creepy right? Except for that instant when you didn't know what made the rustling sound.......

I made this card for a friend of  mine. She posted a photo very similar to this one on my Facebook wall. She knows how special cardinals are to me, so I decided to replicate the image for her as a little thank you.

 Now it's time for my second project. I made an ATC for the Wicked Wednesday Challenge as well as the latest A Day For Daises challenge. The Wicked Wednesday challenge is "Things with Wings," and the A Day For Daisies challenge is "Shades of Blue."

I used the Free Hand Bird with Music Notes, which is of course from A Day For Daisies. . I watercolored the image, and added some beautiful Ice Stickles around the edge. The little heart shaped button is a soft blue, but I'm not sure how easy it is to see in the photo.

Is't this a lovely image? I love the style of all the images from this company. It's never creepy or scary, but something about them really draws me in. They are for sure one of my favorite digi companies.

My simple sentiment was created using an alphabet stamp from Just Rite Stampers. My blue paper has a pretty, pale spotted pattern on it, but again, it's a little tough to see in the photos.
I hope you have enjoyed my offerings for today. Please be sure to stop by the rest of the Jolly Bloggers, they are all listed in my sidebar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a creep-tastic day!

Your 1st ATC is just a tad bit creepy...not knowing where a sound came from always sends a chill up my spine.
Love the ATC, so perfectly blue and winged!
Thanks for playing along with us this week at Wicked Wednesday.

How beautiful these are. Luv the scare factor of the 1st one - yep I would be looking over my shoulder all the time coz the snow definitely makes everything quiet and eerie doesn't it.
Very cool little ADFD creation - that birdie is soooo cute :-) x

Love is Love with Nathalie Kalbach and Friends

The Stampendous team is showcasing the fabulous stamps and stencils from Nathalie Kalbach this week, and some of Nathalie's friends have been joining us. There are 3 prize packaages up for grabs, and anyone can win! Visit the Stampendous Blog for full details. I have been thinking a lot about the recent tragedy to the LGBT community in Orlando, and I decided to use Nathalie's Urban Scribble set for today's project. I started off with the foam stamp (the blank side) and colored a rainbow on it using my Tombow Dual Brush markers. I sprayed the foam stamp with a little water to re-wet the colors, and get some nice splotches. I applied the stamp, then I went back with the detail stamp and inked it up with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then, using the stencil that comes in the Urban Scribble set, plus the Picasso tool, I stenciled some pixelated clouds in the background. I hand wrote "Love is Love." I decided to not make this a card..but rather some

Day 1 of 31 Days: Come as You Aren't

Greetings! It's officially the most wonderful time of the year! Today is Day 1 of the 31 Days of Halloween. I have participated in every 31 Days (what are we at? Year 5?) and I am so excited to be doing it again. For my first project. I use a bunch of Stampendous' newest Halloween images. I started off with the fantastic witch label from the Halloween Labels Cling and Die Set  and colored it with Zig Clean Color Markers. I then stamped the spiderweb and a spider from the Spider Fear set and embossed with with Star Dust embossing powder. I created my card base out of Sweet Potato cardstock and stenciled the Swirls Stencil with Gray Flannel Memento ink. I didn't make it solid, rather I wanted the stenciled image to fade in and out of the background. Then I inked up the bottom edge of the card base with VersaMark ink and then heat embossed Marcastie Embossing Powder on top. The card needed a little something further, so I stamped a sentiment from the Spooky Wishes
