12 Days of Creepmas: Day 1 and DICC

Happy December 1st! I can hardly believe it is the last month of the year. Today officially marks Day 1 of the Smeared & Smudged 12 Days of Creepmas. Hopefully, you already know what that is.But if for some crazy reason you don't, please visit Terra's Blog to get the full run down. Also, since it's the 1st of the month, I have a new Desert Islands Crafters Challenge to share with you. This time, we are sponsored by Saturated Canary. I'm warning you, Creepmas fans...this was is gonna be cah-yute!!! ;) But first, my Creepmas card.

I used Noelle from Stampotique for this card. And look! I made a single layer card! And it's (fairly) clean and simple! 2 things I don't usually do.

I did a rough coloring job on Noelle, to go with the style she was drawn in. Plus, since there is so little negative space, I thought that coloring outside the lines would be good so that more color would show.

I did my border with a stencil and Distress Inks. My sentiment is from Inkadinkado. I will be entering this card into the Stampotique Designers Challenge, SDC 127. Now, on to DICC!

As a reminder, we at DICC have a list of 10 items in our Itinerary. Now. You need to use at least 3 of those items. What could you come up with? Well, here's the latest itinerary, along with what I've come up with.

1. Cupcakes
2. Speckles and Splatters
3. Recycle Something
4. Add a Charm
5. Lace
6. Distress It
7. Polka Dots
8. Make it a Gift
9. Feathers
10. Add a Bow

I used numbers 1, 3, 6, 7, and 10. I used the image Queenie and Princess. When I first saw this image, I immediately thought of my daughter. She loves to play dress up, and I really enjoy dressing her up! ;)

I colored these lovely little ladies with a combination of watercolor markers and alcohol markers. I intend to give this card to my little girl for her birthday, which is in 2 weeks.

Any guesses about my "recycled" portion of the card? See the shiny gold paper in the corner? It's part of a Twix wrapper, which I was happily enjoying as I was putting the card together. I needed something in that corner, and then I saw the wrapper.
So there you have it! Please be sure to visit the rest of the Jolly Bloggers, all listed in my sidebar. Also, the DICC gals, via the DICC blog. Thanks for stopping by. Have a creeptastic day!


Mornin' I really like the fist image and yes...your colouring style goes perfectly with the image. The second card has such cute images, lovely colours.

How cute your Creepmas card is! I think it was a good choice to colour a little outside of the lines.
I love your creepmas card, what a fab senti on it too :D
Awwww....that Got Mistletoe card is very sweet. Nice job on the simple layout - that is not my strong suit either.

Coloring outside the lines was a great choice. Sometimes we all need to just color outside the lines. I love both of your projects for today. What a great way to start the hop.
LOL such a contrast between the 1st card and the 2nd ;o) Totally love that border you have used for your creepmas creation and that you have done a one layer!!! I can't seem to do those!
Matney said…
Stenciling is such a great idea for a frame. Love the one layer and she is awesome. Great card for Day 1 of Creepmas.
Cute and wonderfully colored second project.

Well, I think both cards are cute. I especially like the tree type hairstyle Noelle has going on.

Your use of the twix foil wrapper has me smiling. I have a stash of Hershey mini candy foils.
