Day 5 of the 12 Days of Creepmas: Smile and Joy

Hello and welcome to Day 5 of the Smeared & Smudged 12 Days of Creepmas! Today I have another tag to share with you. I recently received a few Stampotique stamps (you saw me use Noelle this month already), and "Smile" is one of them. I love him! And so do my kids. He's just so cute! So I needed to use him this month.

I colored him with watercolors, and cut him out really roughly...sort of child-like. I let him borrow the Santa hat from my Bombshell Stamps Holiday Accessory set. That I colored with markers.

The "Joy" is from Inkadinkado, and my Christmas Balls are from the Great American Stamp Company. I watercolored the balls too. I also used some Stickles for a bit o' glitter.

I could probably fill up all 12 Days using "Smile," but I will try to pull out something new for Day 6. ;) I will of course be entering my tag into the Stampotique Designers Challenge 128: Anything Goes. Please be sure to visit the rest of the Jolly Bloggers, all listed in my sidebar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a creeptastic day!

I would like to see 12 different projects with this cute little guy. What a challenge that would be for me. Great card and coloring. I like how you didn't fussy cut, just cut around him.
Really great tag..cute image.

What a great tag Alison. I only have a dozen Stampotique stamps and "smile" is among them. Love him! Like you you created and arranged your tag. Lots of fun elements!
Yep - that Smile guy is adorable. I love the look of those Christmas balls too - perfect addition.

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
