Day 14 of the 31 Days of Halloween

Hello! Can you believe that we are halfway through the month already? I can't. It's Day 14 of the 31 Days of Halloween, and today I am sharing a card that is chock full of Stampendous goodies, and a few from Imagine as well!

I started off by rolling out Vineyard Kaleidacolor from Imagine with my brayer and a few spritzes of Ink Potion No. 9 to get the ink to flow better. Once I was happy with the background, I hit it with my heat tool to speed up drying time. Then I stamped Skeleton Lady from Stampendous with VersaMark ink, sprinkled some Detail Black embossing powder on top and heat set it.

After that, I stamped the Scrollwork Leaves around the edges. Then I embossed them with Twilight embossing powder. That powder really sparkles beautifully! Last on this layer, I spritzed some Desert Sand irRESISTable Spay. It adds some great texture and a bit of shine. On my card base, I sprinkled Aged Black embossing powder on the horizontal sides, and Seasonings powder on the vertical.

I love all the different colors and textures that are on this card. And the Skeleton Lady makes the whole thing super creepy. Tomorrow, I'll have another card using this Vineyard Kaleidacolor, but it will look totally different. Don't forget to visit the rest of the wicked Bloggers, they're all listed on my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a creeptastic 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…
