Day 4 of 12 Days of Creepmas: With Dilly Beans

Greetings! Welcome to Day 4 of the Smeared & Smudged 12 Days of Creepmas. Yesterday, I should have posted a project for Dilly Beans, but I am so behind schedule, that I couldn't until today. But, it works out as I can use my project for Creepmas! This week's challenge over at Dilly Beans is "Non-Traditional Christmas Colors." Check out my tag.

I used Mimi's Candy Cane for my tag. As you can see....there's no red or green in sight. My tree used to be these colors....plus hot pink and lime green. We've changed it up a bit over the years though.

I colored Mimi with my Spectrum Noir markers. My snowflake is a border punch from Martha Stewart. I used some Stickles to glitter them up. The sentiment is from Bombshell Stamps' Holiday Accessory set.

Thank you so much for all of the input for my wreath card. I loved Steph's idea to use the skull as holly. Maureen, the spider web punch is from Martha Stewart. She really has some of the best punches.

Please be sure to visit the rest of the Jolly Bloggers, all listed in my sidebar. Also,, please be sure to stop by the Dilly Beans challenge blog to see what the rest of my teamies came up with yesterday. Thanks for stopping by. Have a creeptastic day!

Love is Love with Nathalie Kalbach and Friends

The Stampendous team is showcasing the fabulous stamps and stencils from Nathalie Kalbach this week, and some of Nathalie's friends have been joining us. There are 3 prize packaages up for grabs, and anyone can win! Visit the Stampendous Blog for full details. I have been thinking a lot about the recent tragedy to the LGBT community in Orlando, and I decided to use Nathalie's Urban Scribble set for today's project. I started off with the foam stamp (the blank side) and colored a rainbow on it using my Tombow Dual Brush markers. I sprayed the foam stamp with a little water to re-wet the colors, and get some nice splotches. I applied the stamp, then I went back with the detail stamp and inked it up with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then, using the stencil that comes in the Urban Scribble set, plus the Picasso tool, I stenciled some pixelated clouds in the background. I hand wrote "Love is Love." I decided to not make this a card..but rather some

Day 1 of 31 Days: Come as You Aren't

Greetings! It's officially the most wonderful time of the year! Today is Day 1 of the 31 Days of Halloween. I have participated in every 31 Days (what are we at? Year 5?) and I am so excited to be doing it again. For my first project. I use a bunch of Stampendous' newest Halloween images. I started off with the fantastic witch label from the Halloween Labels Cling and Die Set  and colored it with Zig Clean Color Markers. I then stamped the spiderweb and a spider from the Spider Fear set and embossed with with Star Dust embossing powder. I created my card base out of Sweet Potato cardstock and stenciled the Swirls Stencil with Gray Flannel Memento ink. I didn't make it solid, rather I wanted the stenciled image to fade in and out of the background. Then I inked up the bottom edge of the card base with VersaMark ink and then heat embossed Marcastie Embossing Powder on top. The card needed a little something further, so I stamped a sentiment from the Spooky Wishes
