Drawer Pulls: Day 23 of 31

Greetings! It's Day 23 of the 31 Days of Halloween. Today, I am sharing a project for my kids' room. Last year, we decided to deck the room out in sugar skulls. In a never-ending quest to add more to the room, I decided to change out a few of the drawer pulls on their dressers. Just a few here and there.

The pulls are just like the ones that came on the drawers, so they will look nice when I switch them out. These handles are from Home Depot, and they were pretty inexpensive. I painted them in a pearly white paint. Then, I used the largest sugar skull from the Sugar Skulls Bombshell stamp set, and stamped it with StazOn ink on too tissue paper. Then, I colored them with Sharpies. The Sharpie ink bled a bit on the tissue paper, so I had to re-stamp a few of them.

I sealed them off with a gloss varnish, and the tissue paper doesn't show at all. Using that made it very simple, as opposed to trying to stamp the image over the curve of the drawer pulls. My kids are really happy with them, and  I think they look good. I can't wait for the varnish to cure so that I can add them to the room. I think I will be making a few more. Please be sure to visit the rest of the Wicked Blogger. They are all listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

I was wondering how you got
the stamp around the curve
until I read the description.
Good idea.
The knobs look fantastic..
Happy kids, happy life.
thanks for sharing.
These are wonderful! I can imagine putting these
in every room of the house. Wouldn't match the d├ęcor,
but who cares!?! They're so fun!

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…
