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!

I would frame this one and leave it up year round. Pretty and macabre-what a perfect combination. I need to check out some of your other supplies-your background technique has me fascinated.

Holiday Spirit: Aurora Wings Challenge #73

Seasons Greetings! Today I have a project for the latest Aurora Wings Challenge which is "Holiday Spirit." I decided to take the theme as a two-fer. Not only is this a holiday card, but the "spirits" are flowing too.

I used the Wine Sprite for my card, and gave her a Merlot look. I colored her with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. Here's a closeup.

I found a lovely paper in my stash from Wild Rose Studio from their Holly Lane collection. For my sentiment, I had some pretty red glitter cardstock from DCWV that I die cut with an old alphabet set from QuicKutz. I also added some sequins from a few different Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground. The sequins and the sentiment were all glued on with On Point Glue from Imagine.

On my card base, I inked the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink, and then Peeled Paint Distress Ink. After I adhered my background to my base, I added Rock Candy Stickles to the edges. This gave just a touch of sparkle.

Arnold Grummer and Stampendous Collaboration Part 1

Hello! This is an exciting post for me because I am part of a 2 week "Earth Day" blog hop between Stampendous and Arnold Grummer. If you have visited my blog before, you know how much I already love Stampendous. But Arnold Grummer was new to me. They make paper making supplies. This is something I have never done before. And truthfully, I was never interested in doing. I thought it was so much work to make one sheet of paper, it would take all day, etc. But, when I was asked if I wanted to be a part of this hop, I thought about it and decided that I love trying new crafts, so I should give it a shot. And guess what? I had a blast! My daughter (who is 10) and I decided to tackle this project together, and we came up with 4 beautiful sheets of paper in just over an hour.
 I think that once we play with the process a little more, and organize the flow of our work space, we could probably make the sheets a little faster, but I was really happy with what we accomplished in a pret…
