Best Witches...

I'm super excited to be joining the Crafters Companion Inspiration Team! I pulled out one of my favorite Halloween stamps by Crafters Companion for today's post! 

That witch is so fun to color up! I added a bit of purple hues to the skin area. Something I've never tried before but I'm loving the effect! 

To create the sentiment panel, after stamping the sentiment in Memento I inked the paper with HB3. Next I spritzed alcohol on my craft sheet and pressed the Hessian Texture embossing folder into the alcohol. Immediately press it onto the colored paper to remove some of the marker ink in a texture pattern. 

Crafters Companion Supplies Used:
Spectrum Noir Markers (CG2, DG1, HB1, HB2, HB3, IG7, IG4)

Trick or Treat...

Today' s layout features Clear Scraps new 12 inch Pumpkin Faces Mascil, Trick Or Treat Expressions amd Stampendous Create Fall stamp set! 

I airbrushed the Pumpkin Faces Mascil using Spectrum Noir and the Ebrush  to create the background for my layout. 

To create the Trick or Treat title, I airbrushed the front of the acrylic with Spectrum Noir IG7, True Black and CT4. I spritzed a piece of burlap and pressed it across the inked acrylic to lift off some of the ink and create a distressed effect. I inked the back of the acrylic with yellow marker and painted it with white paint.

Stampendous and Spellbinders Hop

I'm really excited to be joining Stampendous today in the Spellbinders Whimsical Woodland Blog Fest! 

Today I have a layout and card to share using Stampendous Pen Pattern Leaves and Spellbinders Wreath and Phrase sets! 

For a tutorial on how I created the background scroll down the post. 

The Spellbinders Wreath set is perfect for tucking behind a photo! I die cut a few to give the wreath that extra touch. 


1. Stamp Pen Pattern Leaves in Versamark and emboss with White Embossing Powder on watercolor paper. 

2. Press Distress Inks on a non stick mat, spritz with water and use as watercolors. Randomly add colors of ink over your entire paper. While its still wet you can pick tilt the paper to allow the colors to mix and blend into each other some. Allow to dry and go back and add more colors as desired. 

3. Die cut "thanks" four times from white cardstock. Glue each die cut together with glue. 

4. Apply a wet glue to the top of the die cut stack and immediately sprinkle with Micro Glitter. Tap off extra. Allow to dry. 

5. Stamp owl from Pop Up Forest, color with Spectrum Noir markers and cut out. 

6. Adhere watercolor leaf paper to card base. 

7. Wrap ribbon around card and tie in bow. 

8. Adhere die cuts and stamped image to card front. 

Supplies Used:
Stampendous (Pen Pattern Leaves, Pop Up Forest, Sunflower Microglitter)
Spellbinders (S4-572 Wreath and S4-563 Phrase Set One)
Spectrum Noir Markers (CT2, CT4, OR1, OR2, TN3, TN4, LG3, LG4)

Eleven years...

Today's layout is one I created for Clear Scrap featuring the 12 x 12 Blank Acrylic Sheets and 12 inch Dragonfly Mascil. 

I spread Dreamweavers embossing paste through the Dragonfly Mascil and after removing the Mascil, immediately sprinkled fine glitter on it while the paste was still wet. After it was dry, I gave it I brushed off some of the glitter. It wasn't the intended effect, but because I took SO long working my way through the colors of glitter during application, some of the edges of the paste dried and didn't provide a good adhesion of glitter. It wasn't my intention but I LOVE the distressed effect and will do it again. Sometimes those mistakes turn into the perfect touches! 

On the back of the layout I used Nathalie Kalbach's Stampendous sets.. Mish Mash and Wired

1. Apply embossing paste to the front of the Blank Acrylic Sheet using the Dragonfly Mascil as a stencil. 
2. While the paste was still wet, I sprinkled glitter over the paste alternating colors. Tap off the extra glitter and allow paste to dry.
3. Apply glue dots to acrylic sheet. Sprinkle with glitter. Brush off extra glitter. 
4. On the back side of acrylic stamp images in white StazOn. 
5. Mat photo with colored vellum and adhere to acrylic sheet. 
5. Embellish layout.

Feeling Distressed...

For today's project, I combined Stampendous Andy Skinner Steampunk stamps, Deco Arts Media and Metallic Lustre lines and Clear Scraps new chipboard to create a faux metallic layout.

I stamped the electrical image from the Steampunk set repeatedly in Versamark and heat embossed in silver. 

To create the bottom panel, I cut a piece of chipboard to size, adhered pieces of dry wall mesh, chipboard and metal embellishments to the piece. Next I painted everything with gesso. After the gesso was dry, I added layers of Deco Art Media paint. I finished it off by wiping Metallic Lustre over the surface to give it a silver effect. 

Be sure to hop on over to the rest of the Stampendous team and see what they've whipped up...
