Creepy Cool Cards

Halloween is in one week! It is such a fun holiday and gives us a chance to get super creative with how we decorate or craft. I have a couple unique Halloween cards to share with y'all today...

The creepy unique Stampotique stamps are a match made in Heaven with Design Memory Craft Gelatos and Texture Accents. There are a lot of textural elements happening on this card, but it was still quick to make and has a big impact.

I stamped my Dweeze stamp on watercolor paper and colored him with Faber Castell ArtGRIP Aquarelle watercolor pencils. Then I fussy cut him and accented his jacket with a thick coat of Glass Bead Glitter Gel.

I Gesso'd my card front so I could easily blend the Aqua Dolce Gelatos across the entire base. Then I mixed some Mango Gelatos with Design Memory Craft Glaze and did a thick coat of the Glaze across the card. Once it dried I used a stencil with my black Stampers' Big Brush Pen.

My second card follows a similar design and also uses a Stampotique stamp. You can get all the details about my 'BOO!' card on the Design Memory Craft blog here!

Thanks for stopping in! I'll have more Halloween fun posted throughout the week :)

White Rabbit Mixed Media Tag

I can't believe I went the entire month of September without a new blog post! September was a pretty busy and big month around here... it had it's fair share of ups and down, but mostly ups so I'm grateful for it! 

I'm hoping to make October a little busier here in blog land! Today I'm sharing an Alice in Wonderland mixed media tag, complete with a process video wooohooo!

I originally started this tag for the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge which had a movie theme. Well that was three weeks ago so I'm a little overdue for that one! Lucky for me there is an Anything Goes theme for the SSS Wednesday Challenge, so I'll be entering this tag for that!

The fantastic vintage White Rabbit stamp and quote is from IndigoBlu "Alice II" rubber stamp set. I colored the rabbit with Design Memory Craft Aquarelle Watercolor Penicls and fussy cut him. The background of the tag is filled with Gelatos and Texture Luxe pastes and stencils all from Design Memory Craft. 
The products are listed in the video as I use them, so be sure to watch!

MMMC October Mood Board

The most beautiful month of the year is here! Happy October everyone! This post is very bittersweet for me. This is my last project as a designer on the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge team. It's been so much fun to watch the challenge grow ever since Donna and I created it 29 months ago!  Without further ado, let's get to the spooky Halloween October Project...

This month we are sponsored by Stampotique Originals, who specialize in unique quirky rubber stamps. I just adore Stampotique! 

Here's the mood board for the challenge this month! Perfect for all things Halloween.

I had fun putting together this little coffin of creepy people. I painted the base of the coffin with matte paint from Paper Artsy. The stamps are colored in with Faber Castell Design Memory Craft Aquarelle watercolor pencils. I kept the coffin pretty simple; just added some black spider webs, a skull, and some spiders I coated in glitter.

I covered the 'Boo' chipboard in Design Memory Craft Texture Luxe paste in silver and gold. I also added some Texture Luxe to the little angel so help her shine.

Thanks for stopping in and have a beautiful October!
