Day 26 of 31: Smile, you Trickster!

Hello! So after the nonsense that occurred (or didn't, as it were), hopefully this post will save and post at midnight. I apologize for yesterday. I hadn't had a problem all month, so I never checked to make sure yesterday's post actually went live. Foolish me. But enough of that. Today I have an ATC. I wanted to join in with the newest Wicked Wednesday challenge, which is Cute Halloween. I found a cute kitty that I wanted to use.

This guy and his sentiment are both from Inkadinkado. I stamped them in black and added the white highlights with a gel pen.

I added some Glitz Stickles around the edge. I love the vintage-y feel of this ATC. How are you feeling about your projecs? I wish I had more time to do the 3D and altered pieces like I had hoped to do. Bottles, caskets, I have a drawer full of fun things that I wanted to play with. But the month is almost up! Ah well. Maybe next year! At least I made some cool paper projects. Please be sure to visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a fang-tastic day!

Classically wicked!

Mercury has been in retrograde. Let's blame the non posting on that. Lots of malfunctions happening.

I thought maybe this year I would take more photos before I pack all the Halloween things away. So far that has not happened. Just can't keep up but don't want to be left out.

You did vintage wonderfully. That is a great cat image. I had a list of stuff I wanted to make, but wasn't able to finish. We need to start working on this in July;)

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…
