Blog Hop by Smeared Ink

Good morning to all my Smeared Ink loving friends,

It’s going to be an awesome day! A lot of Smeared Ink goodness!

The 2 T’s decided it’s time for another Blog Hop. The Theme for this one is to use any stamp from Smeared Ink. If your wondering, no they are not re-opening. Sad I know 😦

The Blog Roll is on my side bar.

If you are following the Blog Roll then you arrived here from Susan Salyer at: Lily and the Lotus. I do hope you enjoyed her project. Now onto what I have created for this Hop.

I really wanted to use the Grumpie red rubber stamp set, and so I did. I created 2 cards and one art journal page.

Card one:

July-Blog-Hop-2017-2-fall

For this card I stamped my Grumpie image onto X-Press It CS using Tuxedo Black Memento. I then colored this with Copic Sketch markers.

The back ground was created using TH’s Distress Oxide Inks, and a stencil from “The Crafters Workshop.” I first sponged on London Fog onto some Whip Cream CS from FSJ. Then I sponged on the Distress Oxide Ink in Fired Brick. I then flicked water on it to create that distressed oxide look.

I also used the Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink on the vine die cut and the grass, in Pistachio. Followed by more water flicking. The grass, vine, and fall die cuts are from Fun Stampers Journey.

Card two:

July-Blog-Hop-2017-1

 

For this card I stamped my Grumpie Witch image onto X-Press It CS using Tuxedo Black Memento. I then colored this with Copic Sketch markers. I used Copic marker re-inkers for the back ground. The Moon stamp, card stock, black twine, and the “Clear Silk” I flicked on there is from Fun Stampers Journey.

Art Journal Page:

July-Blog-Hop-2017-3-AJ

This is a Black Art Journal Book by Dylusions. I used several different Dylusion paints and stencils fro the back ground. I added some washi tape and stickers from stash. The words that are in Type Set are apart of the Grumpies stamp set. These Grumpies were also stamped onto X-Press It CS using Tuxedo Black Memento. I then colored this with Copic Sketch markers. I flicked “Silver Silk” from Fun Stampers Journey on here.

I really do hope you enjoyed your visit to my blog. I personally really did enjoy playing and creating with these mischievous Grumpies!

Thank you for your visit, thank you for your comments. Stay Crafty my Friends!

Peace,

KristyLee

LOC’s Challenge #155 Fairy Tales with A Day For Daisies

Hello friends,

Time for a new challenge here at: LOC- Left of Center Creative challenges. This week it’s all about “Fairy Tales.” Tell us about your favorite Fairy Tale, and create a project using that as inspiration. If it’s not clear from your project, make sure you let us know what the fairy tale is about in your post. Of course link your project up to the LOC challenge blog.

Our sponsor this week is “A Day for Daises.” Or theme is “Fairy Tales.”

I was able to choose my image from the ADFD store. I picked the digital image called “Pretty Apple.” (Follow the link to get yours.)  “Pretty Apple” shows the Evil Queen in disguise giving the poisoned apple to Snow White. The first ever, Disney animated full length movie “Snow White.” is truly one of my all time favorites. Wich has now been brought back to life in the made for TV series “Once Upon a Time.” I adore this show, and mostly I adore the Evil Queen in this. I look forward to each week, seeing the Evil Queen’s outfits, her costumes are so magnificently beautiful!

For my DT project this week I created an Art Journal page:

155-adfd-fairytales-full-aj

 

I colored my “Pretty Apple” digital stamp from ADFD with Copic Sketch markers. I then glued it on top of my AJ page.

For the background first I used a stencil with Dylusions Paint in Vibrant Turquoise. Followed by a spider web rubber stamp, a caution stamp, and a crackle stamp.

The big skull is a ‘Rub-on’ from Recollections. I found some shiny apple stickers in my stash. The yellow flower an vine is a Spellbinders die.

With an anatomical heart mould, and a skeleton hand mould, and clear resin I created the pieces above the image.

The butterfly is a thick die from “Fun Stampers Journey.” I added a metal mushroom charm on the grass.

LOC #153 Halloween with Bugaboo Stamps

Good evening,

New challenge this week posted for LOC- Left of Center Creative challenges.

Our theme this week is “Halloween.”

Our sponsor this week is “Bugaboo Digital Stamps”

bugaboo-sponsor

 

Here is my DT card:

153

For this challenge I was provided with the digital stamp called “halloween silhouette,” (Follow the link to get yours.)

What I used to create this card:

The image comes to me as a jpeg file. I sized it on a word doc. then printed it with my Laser printer. Because the foil reacts to the toner. I then used purple foil and laid it on top of the image, then ran it through my mini “Minc” machine.

purple-foil mini-minc-de-heidi-swapp

For the background I used “Rich Sorbets” Pan Pastels from “Fun Stampers Journey.”

The die cut is from Spellbinders Card Creator called “5×7 Heirloom.”

The sentiment is from the rubber stamp co. Unity.
