DICC: Day 15 of 31 Days

Hello again! Today I have not one, but 2 projects for Day 15 of the 31 Days of Halloween. Not only is there a new Desert Islands Crafters Challenge, but there is also a new Left of Center Challenge. Let's start off with DICC, shall we?


You'll have to check out the latest itinerary on the DICC Blog, but I'll tell you that I used #'s 1, 2, 3, 4, and 7. I colored this image from Oddball Art Co. with my Zig Clean Color Markers. I created the clouds with my Dreamweaver Stencils' Picasso Tool, along with some London Fog Memento Ink. 

My sentiment is from Stampendous, it's called Shadows, and I heat embossed it with VersaMark and Carnelian embossing powder. I also used 2 Fitted Frames to cut out the sentiment and mat it.


Now, on to Left of Center! We are sponsored by Sami Stamps, and the theme is Halloween. Perfect!

I used Web Veil for this card, and she was also colored with my Zig Clean Color Markers. My sentiment is from Tiddly Inks.

My background uses the exact same Kaleidacolor set from Imagine called Vineyard. A few of you asked me about how I had done it, so check out this video from the Imagine web site HERE. On top of my colored background, I stenciled the Spider Web with London Fog Memento. I sprinkled some Aged Wine Frantage embossing enamel.

That's it for me today. I'm off to have our 12th Annual Potluck. It's always a great time, so I'm really looking forward to it. Please be sure to visit the Desert Islands Crafters Challenge, Left of Center, and all of the Wicked Bloggers, listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a creeptastic day!

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…
