Too Cute to Spook: Day 4 of 31 Days of Halloween

I have a kind of cute card for today. Don't worry, tomorrow will be creepier. I promise. I used an image from Dilly Beans. Love this little monster!

I colored him with watercolors. Same with my pumpkin punch. And my sentiment is from Tiddly Inks.

My background was done with a Cuttlebug embossing folder. Dreamweaver Stencils is now starting to create embossing folders, but as of right now they only have Christmas folders, so I thought it'd be ok to use this one here.

I'll be dual posting tomorrow, as I'll have another project over at the Dreamweaver Stencils blog. So I'll see ya on the flip side! Thanks for stopping by. Have a creeptastic day!

I love it!!!! Dilly Beans are some of my favourite halloween images and you've coloured this guy so well! I am jealous of your embossing folder - I have a few bug ones but not this batty one - love it in the purple!!! :) Mo x

Creepy cute!

I do like that embossed background.
I might pick up a cuddlebug just for that image alone.

Love that Dilly Beans image and the embossing as well! Darn you, now I "need" to have both image and embossing folder! Seriously, I think Dilly Beans images are the perfect cross between creepy and cute.

This little monster can come trick or treating at our house anytime - so cute.
The colours are my favourites for Halloween - purple, orange and green - background embossing folder is very cool.

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

Two Huge Valentine’s Day Hops!

I am in not one, but two Valentine’s Day hops! Not bad for someone that doesn’t even like Valentine’s Day… The first is via Smeared & Smudged . It’s time for our monthly Member Blog Hop! The second was started by Taylor Usry . Please bear with me…this post is long because I am sharing 2 projects and the hop lists are huge. Let’s stat with Smeared & Smudged, shall we? My dear friend Alex and I collaborated on the theme for this month’s S&S Member Hop. Instead of making it a free-for –all, we decided to challenge our members a little…create something Valentine’s Day / love themed, but there is a catch.  Because we are Smeared and Smudged you can not use any of the following: No hearts No red or pink Nothing ‘cute’ unless you make it uncute of course :) Ok, so it’s not dark and scary…but it’s definitely not cute either. I used my colored pencils for the focal image.  It’s from Smeared Ink’s Smitten collection. The “pretty fly” is from the teir teen Style Sa
