Day 2 of 31 with Stampendous & Imagine

Greetings! It's Day 2 of the 31 Days of Halloween, and I have a project that is chock full of Stampendous and Imagine today.

This is a 6x6" Mini Page. I think I'll have a bunch of these this month. I like the size and the fact that I can just pop them into an album once they're done. For this one, I started off with Desert Sand Memento and Wheat Versa Magic from Imagine, and I streaked it across my cream colored cardstock. Then I stamped and embossed the Raven Skull stamp from Stampendous. 

Next, I played with one of my all-time favorite stencils, Houndstooth. I used the stunning Black Shimmer Delicata Ink from Imagine and a stencil brush. I applied it semi-random, with a varying coverage. Then I used an older stamp set from Nat Kalbach (via Stampendous) and Brown Shimmer Delicata to ink the brown splotches. I also used the Brown Shimmer on the die cuts I made using Stampendous' Build a Wreath Die set. This set is fan-freaking-tastic, and is going to be used a whole lot around here. As you can see, I cut the 2 pine boughs, and the scalloped circles. I cute the pieces with black cardstock, flipped them into the ink pad and pressed random areas into the ink with my fingernail. 

Then, there's my absolute favorite new inky-thing that I've gotten this year (and I thought it was going to be the Delicata inks! Those are my second fave). Check out those finger-licking-good drops of blood. Those were created with Imagine's irRESISTable Spray in Love Letter. You NEED this stuff. In lots of colors, but especially Love Letter. It seriously looks like someone bled all over my project. I may go through a whole bottle of it this month!

That's it for me today. Thanks for hanging through and making it to the end of this post. I hope you go and try some of these products. You won't be disappointed! Thanks for stopping by. Have a creep-tastic 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 "
