Fright Night

All month the Stampendous Design Team is playing along with "31 Days Of Halloween."  Each day at least one Designer will be sharing a Halloween card, but don't expect anything cute and sweet!  You will want to go to the Stampendous Blog (link at the bottom) for links to other Designers playing along today.

1. Stamp Twisted Tree on acetate with Jet Black StazOn ink and let dry.
2.  Turn acetate over and apply Glossy Accents to the tree and sprinkle with Purple Micro Glitter.  Let completely dry, then brush off the excess glitter with a Swiffer cloth.  I tried a micro fiber cloth but it didn't remove all of the glitter, too much static electricity. Repeat using Orange Micro Glitter on the cats and owl.  This is really sparkly in person!
3.  Spritz a lime green panel with black metallic spray and sponge the edges with Onyx Black Versafine ink. On the back side of the acetate, apply small amounts of Glossy Accents to the dried glitter sections and glue to a black card with an orange strip on the left side.
4.  Stamp words from the Life Words Perfectly Clear Set with Onyx Black Versafine on white cardstock, cut out and sponge edges with violet ink.  Glue to card on top of pieces of black May Arts ribbon.

Fall Friendship

Today I was going through my photo gallery and found this card, that I had made a while ago that didn't get posted.  It is perfect for Fall and these little House-Mouse mice are sure to brighten anyone's day!  The stamp is call Grape Snack from Stampendous and is colored with Prisma pencils.  Stampendous has made a cute set of sayings to go along with the House-Mouse images.  The sentiment is from the Beary Mice Perfectly Clear Stamp Set.

Have a great weekend and thank you for stopping by!

Time To Distress

This weeks theme at Stampendous is "Feeling Distressed?"  Here is my take on the theme, a distressed country look for my background and flowers.

1.  Stamp flowers from the StampendousBuild a Bouquet Set on violet paper, leaves on light green paper, vase on white paper and cut out using Build A Bouquet Die Cut Set
2.  Sponge the edges of the flowers with purple ink, the leaves with green ink and the vase with light blue ink.
3.  Spritz the flowers with purple spray and when dry add self adhesive pearls to the center of the flowers. Set aside.
4.  Sponge a tan panel with mushroom, rust and butterscotch inks then stamp with the peeled paint stamp from the Industrial set with black ink.
5.  Sprinkle panel with Spoonful of Rust Embossing Powder & Stamp Elements, heat from underneath so the embossing powder doesn't blow off.  Glue to a violet card.
6.  Wrap the vase with May Arts ribbon and cord and pop up on the card.  Arrange flowers and leaves and also pop up.
7.  Stamp sentiment from the Life Words Perfectly Clear Set on a cream oval with violet ink and layer onto a rust oval. Pop up on card.

Take a look and see what the other Stampendous Designers have for you this week!
