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:


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:



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:


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!
