Day 11 of 31: Pop Up Halloween Card

Hello out there! It's already Day 11 of the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween. I have a really fun (albeit not so creepy) card to share with you today. I used some really fun and versatile stamps and dies from Stampendous. Unfortunately, I only have 2 photos, and I no longer have the card, so I couldn't take any more.


Here's the front of the card. I used the brooms from the Cling Create Winter set. Yup. Winter. The rest of the set has snowman parts. It's really cute....but the broom is just what I needed for this Halloween card. I used the Create Winter Die set to cut the broom out quickly and easily. I use this set for the inside too.....let's see if you can figure out where!


Here's the inside of the card. Isn't it fun? I wish you could see the dimension. Stampendous has this fantastic Pop Up Die set that makes this card possible. Most of the inside elements were stamped with the Cling Create Fall set, and then cut out with the Create Fall Die set. I colored the cat, pumpkin, hat and exterior broom with my Tombow watercolor markers.

I used some fun tricks to create some of the elements. For starters, I used the large oval die in the Create Fall Die set to make the cauldron bowl. I cut the oval, then I placed the die back on part of it to cut the top. For the legs.....I simply used the cat's body (the head is a separate die), and tucked it under the cauldron bowl. Same idea to create the moon, I just removed more of the original oval. The funky border on the bottom was made with the grass die also in the Create Fall Die set. The bubbling mixture in the cauldron was made with........the snow bank dies from the Create Winter Die set. And some green double sided cardstock. See? Super versatile! My sentiment is from the Spooky House stamp set and I cut it out with one of the dies from the Pop Up Die set. This card was a lot of fun to make, and it was fun to find unusual ways to use each of the components. Please be sure to visit the Wicked Bloggers that are all listed in my sidebar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a creeptastic day!

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

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Hop

This is a very exciting week for the Stampendous team! We are hanging out with the ultra cool Deco Art Mixed Media team, each using each other's products to share some incredible creations with you. These companies go hand in hand, so using each other's products is easy. And the results are amazing. We are of course featuring Andy Skinner's stamps, who is the DecoArt International Education Coordinator.  And yup, there are prizes! But I want you to go to the Stampendous Blog for all of that info. The link is at the bottom of the post. Now, on to my project. I made a cool wall hanging today. I started off with a piece of MDF and I drilled 2 holes, and covered it with DecoArt's white Gesso. After it dried, I used Andy's Alcohol and Media fluid Acrylics Layering Technique. You can check out his how-to video HERE . Needless to say, it's a great technique, and I loved doing it. Once I finished with the aforementioned technique, I sealed the piece w

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 "
