If you're looking for my Delightful Challenges post, it is here.

Welcome to Day 23 of the 31 Days of Halloween hop with SmearedInk.com! Today I have a bit of news...since I so publicly shared my fears over the biopsy last week, I am pleased t share the news artfully and publicly as well.I got the call from the doctor's assistant today that my results came back and my nodule is benign--or BEE-nign! :)  Yes, I'm pleased beyond words...and relieved...and EXHAUSTED. Worrying is tiresome. So I go back in 6 months to monitor the lumpy lump and see how it goes. Thank you all for your concerns. I appreciate each and everyone of you!
SO...today I use my favorite BEE Afraid digital image pre-colored from Digital Delights by Louby Loo and create another fat book tile announcing my results. To create this tile I printed my bee with sentiment onto transparency with my way-cool color laser printer--have I told you how much I LOVE this printer?!?!? For the "dark night" I used some of the resist Kraft from Tim Holtz's collection and misted black Dylusians and Pewter Perfect Pearls Mist. I dried it completely and then sprayed white to "shadow" my clear image using a mask I had cut from a cardstock image of the same size. When I was happy with the whiteness of my "shadow" I dried the tile again and affixed my clear overlay  to the tile with brads! 

I hope you enjoyed my fat book tile! Please come back tomorrow!!

Welcome to Day 22 of the 31 Days of Halloween hop with SmearedInk.com! Today I'm sharing this quick "Poe" ATC with my raven and the sentiment "nevermore." The pattern paper has a bit of distressing and misting through some Tiny Circles Mesh which is also echoed as the actual mesh under the sentiment. The edges are distressed with a pattern marker, some brown chalk, some brown distress ink and some pen scribbles :) The whole front is then mounted on a piece of Black ATC card stock and the Raven receives a bit of black bling for his eye!

I hope you enjoyed my card! Please come back tomorrow!!

Pop Up Box!


 Happy Tuesday everyone! Today on the Cheery Lynn Blog I share this fun Pop Up box with the match box dies! To create these you need the matchbox, a spring (I borrowed mine from a dried up click pen), something to "spring up", and some embellishments.


You create your matchbox and embellish with some dies or a bow and a bead pull for the drawer.

You will need to "adhere" your spring into your drawer and to your popup image. I embedded my spring into some molten emboss enamel.This worked to hold it in place. A thick bodied glue like E6000 would also work. Once the spring is in place, add the image to the spring.

To create your popup surprise, fold the spring down and position your popup in place. For added festivity, you can place glitter or confetti inside to pop out when the box is opened.


I hope you enjoyed my project! It's a fun favor for Halloween parties!

The Midway!

if you are looking for my 31 Days of Halloween post it is here.


Happy Monday everyone! On the Globecraft&Piccolo Blog today I share a layout using the midway rides chipboard. My husband and daughter recently attended the State Fair of Texas and took some fabulous photos at the midway that I knew would be perfect with the midway chipboard. I created an 8×8" layout and layered the "rides" along the bottom. Deep Blue and Ruby Red Slippers EP were the perfect powders to coordinate with the red and blue neon of the midway! I hope you enjoy my layout!

31 Days of Halloween | Day 20


During the month of October I am participating in a month-long blog hop with some amazing artists. Everyday you will find a new Halloween project on all of the blogs listed below. Each project must have stamping on it, be it digi or ink. There are prizes to win, be sure to check out all the rules HERE and information on the daily scavenger hunt is posted there! You must go HERE to find the item/s you are looking for the scavenger hunt.


Welcome to Day 20 of the 31 Days of Halloween hop with SmearedInk.com! Today I've created this little square card with a mummy with stamped "cloth". I stamped on a piece of white card stock with the Halloween ad page from the "seasonal catalog" from Stampers Anonymous. I embossed it with White Detail EP. Next I cut the ad into ½" strips, distressed the edges and inked the strips. I then misted the strips with white dylusions, blotting up the excess, and then with Pearl Mist again blotting up the excess.
Once dry I created my mummy focal piece and trimmed him up to size with my trimmer. I mounted him on some black card stock and the layered base. A bit of burlap string and some black bling finish off the card! I hope you enjoyed my card! Please come back tomorrow!!
