12 Days of Creepmas - Day 12

Welcome to the final day of the Creepmas Hop Smeared & Smudged style. Thank you for all the comments you've left along the way, I truly appreciate you taking the time to comment :)  I hope you have enjoyed visiting all the blogs along the way, there have been so many amazing projects.
For the last day of the hop it's another Smeared Ink day!  I've printed out so many images during the hop and have changed my mind so many times on what I want to post that I already have a jump on next years hop :)
For today tho I have used Tease from the Zombies Pin Up set.

She's ready to meet Mr. Right under the mistletoe. I've colored her with pencils and wrote the sentiment with gel pen.

Wishing you all a very Merry Creepmas and Creeptastic New Year!

Next stop Susan S.

12 Days of Creepmas - Day 11

We are getting closer to the final day of Creepmas Smeared & Smudged Style :(  I must say I will be sad as participating in a hop really makes me get off my duff and create.  For today's project I have made another lil fat page.

I have used this lil grumpie from Smeared Ink. He's not too happy because someone put glitter in his hair and on his toes.

Next stop on the jolly hop is Susan S.

12 Days of Creepmas - Day 10

It's already day 10 of the Creepmas hop Smeared & Smudged style.  For today I have a simple tag.

The image is from Josie from Simply B Stamps. I've colored her with pencils. I wanted to use more browns and greens than the traditional Christmas colors and I really liked how she turned out until I tried to coordinate her with the papers I have on hand. Bummer, couldn't find anything I really really loved so I settled on a kraft tag and stamps some dark green snowflakes.
Sorry about the bad photo too, we had a storm roll in last night and I'm stuck with clouds this morning :(  boo.

Don't forget to hop on over to visit Susan S.

12 Days of Creepmas - Day 7

Can you believe how the month is just flying by??  We are up to day 7 of the Smeared and Smudged 12 Days of Creepmas Hop. I've got a real quick post for you today as I've got so much to do and not enough time to do it.  It's a Smeared Ink day of the hop which means you will be seeing a lot of images from Smeared Ink.  I've used this lovely skull from the Quoth the Raven Set.  I actually have a rubber set from when they first came out.  This set is now in digi format, however Smeared Ink just started a Rubber Club so you might want to check that out.

Happy hopping! Next stop is Susan S.

12 Days of Creepmas - Day 6

Welcome back to the Smeared a & Smudged 12 Days of Creepmas Hop. For all the details on the hop visit the S & S blog, there is a complete list of Jolly Bloggers there as well as on my side bar, just in case you get lost along the way.
For today's project I have made another fat page (love this size).  I've used a Smeared Ink stamp called Riding Hood. I got her a while back for participating in a challenge so I don't think she's in the store currently but I could be wrong. There's another good reason to join in the fun every month at the S & S forum - you get an image just for playing!
Anywho, back to my project. Red know's how difficult Creepmas shopping can be, sometimes it's hard to figure out the perfect gift for that special someone. So she's opened up shop and is offering fabulous gifts at fairly decent prices.  Check out what's on sale today........

I hope you are remembering to leave some love along all the stops on the hop. I'd hate to send Red after you.  Next stop is Susan S. hop on over and see what Creep-masy goodness she has to share with  you today

12 Days of Creepmas Day 5

Hello Friends!  
It's another fabulously creepy day on the 12 Days of Creepmas with Smeared & Smudged. For day 5 I have used this handsome yet creepy image of Poe from Ike's Art.  
This is a fat book page which are sized as 4" x 4" little works of art.  I'm getting quite the collection of these fat pages and have to make a cover for my book one of these days :)  I've colored Poe with pencils and then stamped some snowflakes and the sentiment. I had to add a creepy glitter spider for some bling :)

Thanks for stopping by, the next stop on the hop is Susan S. 

I would also like to enter this into the following challenges:

12 Days of Creepmas Day 4

 Good Morning Friends! This will be a quick post since I'm running late for work this morning :)
My first project is an ATC for the 12 Days of Creepmas Hop with Smeared and Smudged. I've used this lovely sugar plum fairy from Smeared Ink.
She was crying out for lots of sparkle so I've added lots of glitter to her dress.

My second project is my DT card for Forever Night Challenge # 57 this week. Our sponsor is the fabulous Sassy Studio Designs, the theme is add lace/anything goes.
I didn't have any lace in my stash but I thought the background paper looked rather lacey :)  I hope you find the time to join us at Forever Night Challenges this week.

Next stop for the Creepmas hop is Susan.

12 Days of Creepmas - Day 3

Welcome back to day 3 of the Creepfest! Visit the Smeared & Smudged blog for all the deets.  Today I made a tag in Christmas colors :)

The skeleton butterfly image is from Paula Best.  I've embossed the background and used direct to paper technique to ink it up in lovely green.  The black swirl is a die cut from MFT.  I'm still deciding on the ribbon or fibers to add.... might need to make a run to the craft store for the perfect one :)
Next stop on the hop is Susan.  If you get lost along the way all the blogs are listed on my sidebar.

Freaky Friday (a few days late)

Hello Friends!
 This week's challenge over at Forever Night Challenges is anything goes.  Our sponsor is Limited Runs and I was able to play with this wonderful image of Igor.  The winner this week will be able to choose 3 digis from the Limited Runs store, how cool is that!

 I started with black CS then layers a piece of glossy CS that I had done the waxed paper technique.  I figured it gave it a dungeon or bell tower texture :) Then I colored and fussy cut Igor, and I colored and cut his handsome face a second time.  I popped each image with foam tape for dimension.
Now hurry on over to Forever Night Challenges to join in the fun!

PS Limited Runs has a cute Chirstmas ornament freebie from last Friday too, so go over and check that out.

QKDs 13 Days of Halloween Blog Hop Day 10

Welcome back! Todays theme for the QKD Blog Hop is Labels.  I've chosen this fab Elixir label. I stamped in cocoa ink on kraft paper, then cut out.  I mounted onto black CS and cut that out to shape also.  The testure paper may look familiar, I used it a couple of days ago on an ATC.  I mounted that onto black CS also and then onto the kraft CS base.

I added a shimmery brown ribbon and a pin I made with beads from my stash.   Please make sure to visit all the blogs on the hop and leave everyone a bit of love, we all appreciate comments.
This is the last day I'm participating in the QKD Blog Hop and I've had a blast. I hope you've enjoyed visiting my blog and come back to see me in the future. There are still a few days left of the hop so make sure to visit the QKD Blog everyday for the hop list.

QKD 13 Days of Halloween Blog Hop Day 7

Welcome to Day 7 of the QKD Halloween Blog Hop.  Today's theme is flowers.  I've used this lovely image from Monica N Galvan's Visions Collection called Masquerade Fairy, you can find her at the QKD Store.

I've colored her with pencils and added a little bit of everything else.  I made the flowers from patterned paper and a die from MFT.  I used black glitter glue in each of the flowers and regular glitter glue on her wings. Also some gel pen on her mask and trim of her dress.  The background was spritzed with purple glimmer mist and the flowers with white glimmer mist.  I made the stick pin with beads from my stash.  I had a lot of fun with this creation.

QKD 13 Days of Halloween Blog Hop Day 4

Hello friends and welcome back to the 13 Days of Halloween QKD Blog Hop.  Today's theme is spooky.  I used an image Isabella from Kathy Cyr.  I got her a while back because she looked so sweet but sad.  As I was pulling my idea together for my project I had a flash of brilliance (I think) I planned on making an ATC and this image is the perfect size, but with a theme of spooky how was I going to make this sweet little fairy work?  Well at first I thought maybe she got stuck in the web and was so sad and needed help, but then I decided she didn't really get stuck.  It's all a trick! She's luring you into helping her and then her spider friends attack!  Pretty spooky eh?

I have really bad lighting in my house :( So I've been scanning my projects, well this one with so much lighter colors really gets blown out. I also took one with my camera but because of the bad lighting I have to be careful or the flash goes off and then it really gets blown!
So I've included both.  The scan so you can get an idea of the layout/design and the second camera shot which is a bit blurry but you can tell she actually has some color to her.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving such sweet comments along the way.  I'm so happy to be joining in the fun with QKD's wonderful DT.  Make sure to visit all the blogs and leave them some love.  I will be back for day 6 but don't miss out on all the day 5 entries, stop at QKD's blog for each days participants! And stop by the QKD store to pick up some of the fabulous images she carries!

QKD 13 Days of Halloween Blog Hop Day 3

Welcome back to day 3 of QKD's 13 Days of Halloween Blog Hop.  The theme for today is purple. I've used this lovely image Orchid designed by Kathy Cyr. She can be found at the QKD store along with many other fabulous images.

I've colored her in various shades of purple with my pencils and used foam tape to layer her on some purple paper from my stash.  All on a black CS base.  I wanted to add glitter to the wings but knew she would never dry in time to be scanned for the hop.   So check back I may go ahead and do that and take another photo to add :) In the meantime make sure to visit all the blogs on the hop and leave all the artists some love, plus there is a special message on the QKD Blog that you won't want to miss.

This weeks theme is creepy tags / anything goes.  Make sure you head over to check out what the design team has created  using images from this weeks sponsor - Dilly Beans.

I chose image #385 - sugar skull & flowers framed to work with.

Just For You

Here's a sweet little card I made for a new challenge blog I've found, The Cupboard Trilogy.  This is Challenge #2 - embossing.  I used my Cuttlebug folder to create the background and then used the direct to paper technique to color it.  I figured it looks like tall grass for my cute lil bug.  The image is a freebie from SK Digis.

Believe in Who you are!

This is my ATC I'd like to enter into the Wicked Wednesday ATC Challenge.  The theme this week is owls.

What a crazy week, it's been one thing after another and I haven't had any craftin' time at all :(  I feel like I've been neglecting my blog after posting everyday while playing in the smudgefest.  I have images printed out and ready to color this weekend, I WILL find the time :)
In the meantime here's a card I did a while back that I don't think I ever shared.
Isn't she a cutie, she's Emo Elenora's Sunflower from Just Some Lines.  I colored her with pencils and layered her onto some older CTMH paper from my stash.
