Day 15 of 31- Just Some Lines with DICC

Hey there! It's is the 15th of the month, (Yikes! How can that be already?!) so if you are a regular follower of my blog, you will know that this is one of 2 days in the month that the Desert Islands Crafters Challenge posts our challenges. For these challenges, we give you a 10 item itinerary. To play along, you need to use at least 3 items on the given itinerary on your project. Here's the itinerary for this round...and we are sponsored by Just Some Lines. Here's the itinerary.
1. Witches/Broomsticks
2. Black Cats
3. Cauldrons
4. Use Stripes
5. Sentiment on Front
6. Lots of black
7. Glitter and Sparkle
8. At least 2 ribbons
9. Use Kraft Cardstock/Paper
10. Die Cuts or Punches

I used #'s 1, 2, 4, 5, 9, and 10. Isn't this a cute image? I've gotta say, it's cuter than I typically use, but I like it! 

I used my Spectrum Noir markers to color this image. My sentiment is from Cosmo Cricket.

I kept this pretty clean and simple, and just used some scraps to finish the piece off. Oh, and some fabby Orange Peel Stickles. I love the little flashes of green that this color has. So that's about it for today! Please visit the DICC Blog to see what the rest of the team has come up with. And of course, there's the Wicked Bloggers, all listed in my sidebar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a skulla-riffic day! ;)


***Maureen, yes, I use the Cut-N-Dry nibs like a pen. I swirl the ink colors on to the nib and then apply it to the paper. A simple rinse of water cleans them off. Love those little nibs!

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…
