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.

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!

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.

Christmas in July with Imagine Crafts & Stencil Girl!

Hello! Have you heard? The Imagine AIRs have been hopping with Stencil Girl! If you have been here before, you know I loooove me some stencils, so this collaboration was very exciting for me! The teams are hopping for 3 consecutive Saturdays, and this is week 2. I have the entire list of hop links at the bottom of the post. Be sure you don't miss anyone! I decided to to create an extra large gift tag with my new stencils. Using red cardstock, I taped down the Journal Texture #8 Stencil  and inked it up with Golden Glitz Delicata ink . I promise you, this is the BEST gold ink you will ever use! The Journal stamp only has 2 diamonds on it (it's a 4x4" stencil), so after I inked up the first pair, I moved over the stencil, lined it up, and inked again. Next I wanted to do something textural with the Urban Insiders Star . So I took some evergreen cardstock, taped down the star, and slathered on some yummy Iridescent Green Creative Medium . After the medium dried, I ga

Remembering Aletha

Greetings, Friends. This post today is part of a very special blog hop. We are celebrating the life of an amazingly talented artist and friend. The crafting community lost Aletha Jane Williams on May 5, 2019. Those of us that worked with her on Design Teams or on Challenge Blogs all agree that she was one of the sweetest and most talented women we knew. We are not here to mourn her loss though. This hop is happening in conjunction with a very special celebration of her life and her art that her husband Bob is holding in her home city of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Please join us in honoring our incredibly creative friend Aletha . My card features the "Remembering Aletha" Sprite, which Mitzi (owner and artist of Aurora Wings ) created specifically for this hop. She is generously giving the digi away to all, over on her blog. This sweet Sprite looks so much like Aletha, and I know she would have been honored. If you download this digi for yourself, please be sure to give a huge "

Dream Big: Imagine Collaboration with Joy Clair

Hello! The Artists in Residence for Imagine had the wonderful opportunity to collaborate with Joy Clair. They sent us some fabulous stamps, and I really love them. The stamps have such beautiful details, and there are many many options within each set. I chose to work with the Dream Big Clear Stamp Set. It features a big dream catcher with feathers and beads that you can place as you wish.  It's linework is so fine, that I knew that VersaFine ink would be the perfect ink for these stamps. But first, I chose to spritz some Fireworks! on to my watercolor paper. I focused on keeping the color up where I would place the dream catcher later. After the Fireworks! dried, I inked up the hoop of the dream catcher and stamped it out. Then I "built" the rest of the dream catcher using the beads and feathers that are also in the set. It was so much fun to create the rest of the piece. After I was happy with the beads and feathers, I drew a "string" with a PITT pen
