Moonlit Night: Day 23 of 31

Greetings! It's time for Day 23 of the 31 Days of Halloween. Today, I am sharing a card that uses a beautiful moon stamp from Altenew, and a fabulous tree stencil from Stampendous.

I started off by stamping the layers of the moon on to my white cardstock. I used Cement VersaColor, London Fog Memento, and Gray Flannel Memento; all from Imagine. I then cut out a mask of the moon and temporarily adhered it directly on top of the stamped moon.

Using Faded Jeans, Salty Ocean, Wilted Violet, and Seedless Preserves Distress Oxides, I inked the entire background with my Ink Blending Tools. Next I took the Bare Trees Stencil and I sprayed it thoroughly with Sheer Shimmer Frost. I felt that it didn't have quite the effect that I wanted because it was light, so I then sprayed the stencil again with Tuxedo Black Fireworks! Spray. I verrrrrry carefully placed the stencil back down on to my cardstock and let it sit for a minute. I really liked the end result this time, as some of the Sheer Shimmer Spritz peeks through in spots, but the overall look of the tress is darker. It especially looks better in front of the moon.

Here you can see how pretty the spays are on top of the Distress Oxides. I adhered the piece on to black cardstock, and added a couple of punched out tombstones from Martha Stewart. That punch is pretty old, so I don't think it is available anymore.

This is gorgeous and so full of atmosphere. I love the combination of inks and sprays. What a wonderful scene with the headstones and those trees overlapping the moon. Thanks for the inspiration. Bonnie (LeighSBDesigns DT)

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…

Winged Heart Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Collaboration

Hello! It is he final day for the Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L collaboration. Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L is such a wonderful company with lots of great products. They generously supply the Stampendous Design team with 3D adhesive foam squares and other kits so we can pop up the elements on our cards and bring our projects to life. On my other card for this collaboration, I used the foiling kit (called the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit) and I decided I wanted to use it again today.

I really enjoyed foiling the "merry" on my other card, so I wanted to do that technique again. But I added a bit of a twist this time. I took the heart from the new Wings Die Set and die cut a piece of foam from the Embellishment Kit. I only ran it through my Big Shot machine once, so that the pieces wouldn't fall out of the heart. I carefully pulled off the main part of the heart's front protective paper and applied blue foil to it. Then, while keeping all of the small bi…
