Creating Fall and ADFD August Club Kit

Hello! I have a 2-fer for you today. My first project is for the Fall theme that we Stampendous gals have been sharing with you all week. The second is for the new August Club Kit from A Day for Daisies.

Let me start by saying that I LOVE House Mouse stamps! If you've been following me for a while, you know that I prefer creepy stuff...but when it comes to House Mouse images, I just melt! For today's card, I used Trick or Tweet. I colored the stamp with a combination of Tombow watercolor markers and Copics. I also used watercolor paints for my sky.

If you look really close, you'll see that the bird has a teeny seed that he's giving to the trick or tweeters.

For my background, I used the negative background that I had created for yesterday's card....scroll down to my next post to see! It was made with Pale Ale Memory Mist and the stencil that comes with the Wired stamp set. On top of that, I inked the Oak Leaf in random areas to add more oomph to the background. I inked my card base a bit, and I added the Copper Lux Mix to 2 corners. I also added a wee bit of rik rak from May Arts. Here are the rest of the folks posting today from Stampendous.


For A Day for Daisies, we are sharing the August Club Kit. I worked with Vintage Lip Color. And, I went very "Alison-Style." I made it kinda goth, and I love it.

Isn't she lovely? I colored her with my Tombow markers. I wanted to make her kinda creepy-chic. Is that a thing? I'd like to make it a thing. I want to BE creepy-chic myself. There. I'm coining it. Creepy-Chic. You saw it here first. ;) But I digress.....

For my background, I started with the Fleur de lis Dreamweaver Stencil and I inked it with a deep purple ink. I added a couple cool pieces of scrap paper, and super sparkly ribbon, plus some micro beads.

I looooove this image, and I can't wait to color her up again. I'll even try a softer more straight laced version. She's just gorgeous. And wait until you see the rest of the images in the August Club Kit. You're going to love them. Please be sure to visit the A Day for Daisies blog to see more! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Blog Hop Finale

Hello! It's time for the finale of the DecoArt and Stampendous blog hop. Have you enjoyed yourself this week? I bet you've got some new techniques that you want to try. I know I do! I am super stoked about my project for today. And it solves a dilemma that we've had in my kids' room for a while.

What you see above is 2 pieces of PVC. And some fab DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics! So, what am I doing with PVC, you ask? Well, my mom bought my son a light saber(Darth Vader's) for Christmas, and he wanted to display it, but we weren't really sure where in his room, and how. I wanted something cooler than hooks, and we thought it would be neat to have the light saber vertical, instead of horizontal. Plus, there was a fab spot for it if it hung in that direction. So, my husband came up with the PVC pip idea, and I altered the pieces.



The end cap holds the base, and the small piece of pipe holds up near the end. And the 2 pieces are spaced out enough so that it's easy…
