Monster Treat Bags

Greetings! I have a fun Halloween project today for Stampendous' 31 Days of Halloween. I was inspired by the Little Monsters stamp set, and thought they would look adorable on little treat bags.

I have a bunch of these little paper bags from Whisker Graphics. Since they are food safe, they are perfect for this quick project. I just stamped a few of the Little Monsters images on to each of the bags with VersaFine Clair ink in Nocturne and colored them all in with PITT pencils from Faber Castell.

The PITT pencils blend so nicely, that I was able to go for wild color choices and they still came out looking great! The pencils are nice and soft too, so I don't hurt my hands when I use them like I often do with regular colored pencils.

I love the polka dot bag! I thought that the eyeball balloon was perfect to coordinate with it.

I think it took me about 20 minutes to make both of these bags from start to finish. Nice and quick! Do you make treat bags for the kids of your neighborhood? Perhaps just for your own, or a few special children? I tend to only do something for my own kids, but these bags are so cute I may make a few more. Don't forget to visit the Stampendous Blog to see what other bloggers have created a spooktacular project today. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a fangtastic 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
