Pumpkin Pie with Dreamweaver & Spellbinders

Hello! Welcome to Day 3 of the Smeared Ink 31 Days of Halloween. It's also time for the Stampendous Quarterly Hop with Spellbinders. Our theme this week has been Pumpkin Pie so I'll be following that theme while incorporating Dreamweaver Stencils and Spellbinders dies.

I started off by cutting my focal piece out of black cardstock using one of my many Spellbinders dies. Then, using black embossing paste with the Jack O Lanterns stencil. While it was wet, I sprinkled Metallic F/X powder on to the image with a brush. I used Nouveau Orange, Amber Glow, Eye of the Tiger, and Kimono Red. I then heated it with my embossing gun to speed up the drying process. This causes the paste to bubble in a wonderful way. It gives the stenciled image great texture. It really looks like metal now!

Next, I used a VersaMarker watermark pen around the edges of my die cut image. The I heat embossed Seasonings Chunky Metallic Embossing Powder. I LOVE that stuff! I did one side at a time. For my bigger layer, I did the same thing with the edges, and I also stamped some teeny spiders from the Spooky House set.


I had some punchinella that I added to the background, and that added even more metallic goodness to the card. Here are the folks from the Stampendous DT that are sharing projects today. And don't forget! All of the links to the fantastical 31 Days of Halloween are listed in my side bar. 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
