Day 12 of 31: Stampotique- Handles, Hinges, Buckles, Fasteners, Pulls

Hello and welcome back! Today I have a card that I created with a Stampotique image that just so happens to fit in with their latest challenge "Handles, Hinges, Buckles, Fasteners, Pulls." I used Prom Queen for this. She's awesome.

I love the style of these stamps so much. They are so scratchy and amazing. I need to add to my (small) collection someday.

She was colored up with my alcohol markers. I actually broke out some Copics for this one. I love her hair. I didn't do anything fancy or fabulous. But the way it's drawn is just rad.

 I added a bunch of buttons...not for the challenge...just because I thought they looked cute. Ugh. I said the "C" word. But they do...right? And then it just so happens that it fit the challenge, so....there ya go. By the way, the punch is from Martha Stewart. That chic always has the best punches. I won't keep you any longer.

I think you did a great job! Cute works for her. I really like how you added the orange and green around her hair and feet.

Happy Wicked Weekend!
Yes, it was her hair that first caught my eye. After looking at her for a bit she could be the Zombie version of Peanuts' PigPen.

Holiday Spirit: Aurora Wings Challenge #73

Seasons Greetings! Today I have a project for the latest Aurora Wings Challenge which is "Holiday Spirit." I decided to take the theme as a two-fer. Not only is this a holiday card, but the "spirits" are flowing too.

I used the Wine Sprite for my card, and gave her a Merlot look. I colored her with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. Here's a closeup.

I found a lovely paper in my stash from Wild Rose Studio from their Holly Lane collection. For my sentiment, I had some pretty red glitter cardstock from DCWV that I die cut with an old alphabet set from QuicKutz. I also added some sequins from a few different Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground. The sequins and the sentiment were all glued on with On Point Glue from Imagine.

On my card base, I inked the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink, and then Peeled Paint Distress Ink. After I adhered my background to my base, I added Rock Candy Stickles to the edges. This gave just a touch of sparkle.

Arnold Grummer and Stampendous Collaboration Part 1

Hello! This is an exciting post for me because I am part of a 2 week "Earth Day" blog hop between Stampendous and Arnold Grummer. If you have visited my blog before, you know how much I already love Stampendous. But Arnold Grummer was new to me. They make paper making supplies. This is something I have never done before. And truthfully, I was never interested in doing. I thought it was so much work to make one sheet of paper, it would take all day, etc. But, when I was asked if I wanted to be a part of this hop, I thought about it and decided that I love trying new crafts, so I should give it a shot. And guess what? I had a blast! My daughter (who is 10) and I decided to tackle this project together, and we came up with 4 beautiful sheets of paper in just over an hour.
 I think that once we play with the process a little more, and organize the flow of our work space, we could probably make the sheets a little faster, but I was really happy with what we accomplished in a pret…
