August 10th Stay Crafty@Home Blog Hop

 

Leigh's blog hops are stress free...you play when you want and how much you want!  All the details are HERE at LeighSBDesigns Inspiration Blog!  The linky party is there, too! 😉
This one hits close to home!  Bats in the Belfry!
The wonderful bat cage and swooping bat are from the Member Exclusive set for August by Oddball Art!  The little haunted house is stamped onto a piece of clay stamped with a stamp by Smeared Ink.  I found so many goodies while sorting out my work space!  The clay was gold and I put another coat of gold shimmer on top to freshen it up before stamping. I used Gelatos in greens to go over the bat cage then went over the bats with a Pitt black brush pen.  I used white acrylics for highlights on all of the bats.  I cut out the cage and glued to the designer paper and glued that to a cardboard fat page.  I fussy cut our the bat from the set and after highlighting I coated the image with Mod Podge.  The bat went on with foam dots and I attached the clay piece with some strong double sided tape.  I wrote the sentiment with a gold gel pen, added some white and gold dots and Mod Podged it when it was dry!  Stuck it on and was done!  See you tomorrow!

From Christmas to Halloween!  Yup, that's me!

This is a stamp that was given to me by Tracey years ago and I have lost track of my notes as to the brand.  I embossed the image on some foam board but the details were lost.  So I stamped on a piece of cardstock and painted the edges of the foam board with the same golden, white, all mixed up texture paint as the background.  Then I glued the stamped cardstock on top with Mod Podge and put two layers of the Mod Podge to shine it up.  I layered this up onto the painted background and a piece of black cardstock.  I stamped Hello? and popped it up on some tiny square beads.  Should we answer him?  I am not too sure about that!  I hope everyone is staying safe and wearing masks!  People are having problems with the face mask subject around here.  One good way to  stay in and safe is to craft away with us!

Repeat Notice and Stay Crafty @ Home Blog Hop August 8th

I am dealing with the new Blogger so bear with me or laugh with me cause I don't know what to do!  I am reblogging my little kitty Christmas ornament that I didn't get posted in time for Christmas in July with Leigh!  Lyneen came by and saw it so it will be a repeat for her! 
This is one of Leigh's and I love it!  Meowy Christmas ATCoin comes with a free ATCoin swap label and he is adorable!  I basically used the little Crayola glitter paint set and die cut the two circles.  I printed Meowy Christmas kitty on the top circle and painted it all up.  Then I colored and fussy cut another kitty and glued on to the top circle.  I used a white gel pen and white acrylic paint to texturize the hat, sparkle the eyes and nose, and accent the sentiment.  I attached the finished pieces to a cereal box circle and slipped in the lace for a hanger before gluing it all down.  I am finally getting set up downstairs again.  My back doesn't like the stairs and it has been very slow going!  So here's hoping my back holds out for this fabulous blog hop!  Thanks for hosting and sponsoring another hop for our sanity, Leigh!

Using the awesome Meowy Christmas ATCoin with free ATCoin Swap Label by LeighSBDesigns, I made a Christmas tree ornament!  I used the same Crayola glitter paint set that cost just 2 dollars!  I have had more than my money's worth in enjoyment playing with this set!  I fussy cut my colored kitty (Prismacolor) and then cut out the ATCoin with the sentiment.  I die cut the back circle using my brand new die set from Oozak using my gift card that I won at the Outlawz Challenges last month!  After painting the first copy of the ATCoin and adding the glitter I adhered the fussy cut image and added the white gel pen dots on the sentiment and the eyes.  I used white acrylic paint to fluff up the hat and then used Golden gloss medium to add sparkle to the eyes and hat!  Thanks for a wonderful hop by our fabulous Leigh and for tons of inspiration by the marvelous blog participants!  After totally missing the deadline for the Christmas in July Blog Hop I am so happy to link this little cat up to the Festive Friday Challenge at the Outlawz Challenges!  I am of course celebrating Christmas with my little Meowy Christmas ornament.  Join the Outlawz Challenges!  They are super awesome!

July 25th Outlaws Progressive Freebie Challenge and Christmas in July Blog Hop

I received this wonderfully cute image "Gingerbread Treat" by Twinkle Lane Designs for the July Progressive/Freebie Challenge at the awesome Outlaws Challenge!  This was a delight to color with my Prismacolor colored pencils.
I inked the edges with salty ocean Distress Ink and layered it on some canvas paper that I had plopped some acrylic paints from my palette on to keep from wasting them!  I added some acrylic silver paper towel tube circles with some old credit card to make some lines.  I added white acrylic paint to the snowflake and dots on the cup with a bit added on the fluffy pink marshmallows!   And there you have it a ready to send Christmas card in no time flat!  I am also playing along with Leigh's Christmas in July Blog Hop so of course this little guy is popping in there!

Ike's World Challenges S ...Show Us Xmas/Anything Goes

We are at the midway mark for Ike's World Challenges # 134 and S is for Show Us Xmas or you can play Anything Goes!  We love it all!  Don't forget to check out the awesome freebie Ike has shared with us and leave her some love for being the fantastic artist she is! 💖  Now here is my humble offering for this month's challenge!
I have been seeing so many great fold cards that I had to try it even though I am really not a card maker.  But off I went and folded and refolded to build a base for the Stable (this comes with a door also) and the 3 Kings ( I searched for this to link directly to it but I missed it somehow so linked to the store).  I colored everything up with Spectrum Noir markers and added some paper and the sentiment to the bottom base.  It ended up a little wonky but I still like how it turned out!  Now it's your turn to show us some Christmas fun or Anything you want!  We love visiting your blogs and seeing the fab projects!

I am also entering this in Leigh's Christmas in July Blog Hop and the details are right below!
