It's Halloween!!!!!!

Oh gosh what a month! I have enjoyed it but boy am I glad it's over I really don't think I have another piece in me LOL

Today I am sharing a page from my mini album, I actually started this album last year and I had totally forgot about it until I was getting my foam pumpkin out for later and it was in the bottom of the box.

The stamps I used are from the Creepy L'il Grumpies rubber set from smeared ink

Day 30 of 31 days of Halloween

Today I have made a digi card using this fab image from smeared ink. Keeping it short and sweet, feeling a it yacky and want to go back to sleep now.

day 29 of 31 days of halloween

As much as I have loved doing this month I am glad there are only 2 more to go now as I am exhausted! LOL

I am a bit later posting today as my memory card decided to go for a fly as I was taking it out of the camera and I can't find it, luckily I have another so was able to take my photo again.

I have made an ATC today using one of the awesome little grumpies from the creepy lil grumpies rubber set from smeared ink.

Day 28 and week 2 of the Smudgy Antics Colour Challenge

Today I am  sharing with you a card I made for the 2nd week of our challenge at Smudgy Antics.

The challenge is to use at least 3 of  these colours in your make.

I have used a rubber stamp from Haunted Places 2 set which is a Smeared Ink rubber club set designed by Rick St Dennis.

The image has been coloured with pencils. I used another stamp from that set on the inside of the card too.

Don't forget that today is the last day for the 25% off offer on the 25 stamp sets from Stampin Up. The mystery hostess code for this month is XBT97YDZ

Day 26 of 31 days of halloween

I am really starting to flag now, my piece today has been made this morning in between the laundry, shopping, cleaning and all those other yucky jobs that have to be done on a Saturday.

I have made a cute little card today using a fab image from Ike's art, I coloured the image in with pencils and made up the card with some scraps of halloween paper as I am starting to run out and really don't want to have to buy any more this year LOL

Day 25 of 31 days of Halloween

Today I have 2 pieces to share with you all. The first piece is my piece for the new Delicious Doodles challenge which is a scary Halloween. I have used several images of Teri's so I will pop a list with links under the picture. I made a box with a bit of a scary treat inside of it!

Stamps and papers used: Pile o' Bones PaperAngel of Death Gravestone Scene Evil Carnival Clown Rose + Thistle Papers

The other piece I have made is a journal page. I can't remember where the paper came from but the image I have used is from the creepy Lil' Grumpies rubber set from Smeared ink

The poem that is written on the page is called spooks and is written by Sandra Liatos
There’s a goblin at my window, A monster by my door. The pumpkin on my table Keeps on smiling more and more. There’s a ghost who haunts my bedroom, A witch whose face is green. They used to be my family, Till they dressed for Halloween.

Day 24 of 31 days of Halloween

Got another quick one to share today again. I have been out at a mad hatters tea party this evening, the cub scouts that 2 of my boys go to ran the tea party in aid of Meningitis trust which is a charity close to my heart.

As I am limited with time tonight I have just made another digi page. As always the page has been made up in Craft Artist and the 2 stamps I have used on it are both from Smeared ink.

Day 23 of 31 Days of Halloween

How are we all doing? I'm just about hanging in there with my pieces, still have quite a few to make for the remaining days but at least the pieces are made in my head LOL
Today I am sharing a little lantern I have made. I used plain black card stock, a little bit of ribbon from my stash and a fab image from Stampin Up the stamp is from the Dark and Dreary set which is available in digital form as well as rubber. I have got the set in it's digital form so printed the image onto a piece of Vellum. When I had scored my sheet of black card stock I ran it through the grand caliber with the square label die. I stuck the image on the inside behind the cut out then put the box together. To finish it off I just added a little bit of ribbon to the top and bottom.

Ike's World Challenges Anything Goes

Hello Lovelies! It's team B's turn to show off Ike's images this week for our anything goes challenge.

I have used the beautiful Autumn Nymph which I coloured with promarkers and used zentangles to colour in the hair, it's the first time I have used that technique and I found it very relaxing although it did take ages :)

I do hope you will come and see all the wonderful DT work and join in with our challenge.

day 22 of 31 days of Halloween

Today my piece has been made using a fabulous image from one of the sponsors Simply Betty.
I coloured the image in with promarkers then made the hanging with a piece of cardboard and some acrylic paints.

Day 21 of 31 days of Halloween and Colour Challenge at Smudgy Antics.

It is the start of a new challenge over at Smudgy Antics and the theme is a colour challenge. the colours you need to use for this challenge are:
You will need to use at least 3 of these colours in your piece.
I used some of the yummy paper, the gorgeous dead dancer stamp, the cross stamp and the sentiment all from smeared ink for this piece.

Day 20 of 31 days of halloween

How fast is this month going?!? My piece today is one I had to make last night when I was just going to go up to bed and realised I'd not made anything for today!

I decided to go with a digi page made up in craft artist. I used some of the elements from the program and then added the tombstone 1 and pile o' bones backing paper both from Delicious Doodles.

Day 19 of 31 days of Halloween

Today I have made a cute little treat bag. I made up the bag in craft artist using paper and a stamp from smeared ink and adding the sentiment from Altered pages. The image was coloured in craft artist too. Once I printed it out I cut it and stuck it all together before adding a bit of homemade washi tape to the bottom.

I do hope you will have a look at all the other pieces that everyone has made today, as ever the blop hop list is just there>>> so you can start at the top and work your way through. Thank you to everyone that has stopped by this far and left me some lovely comments.
For those of you that don't know I am on the Mixed Media University Design team over at the smeared and smudged forum, there will be new tutorials posted every week. If you fancy learning something new then head over to the group and get started :D

Day 18 of 31 days of halloween

Today I am sharing a scrap page I have made. I have used the smeared ink image from the Freaky Freebie Challenge over on the smeared and smudged forum.  I only used the head and hands from the image then added this rather glamorous glittery dress all ready to hit the town now! Of course not everyone shares the opinion of Frankie in thinking that he looks fabulous LOL.
The other images that I have used are all from Altered pages who are sponsoring some of the days.

Day 17 of 31 days of Halloween

It is so lovely to see so many people still hopping along and leaving such lovely comments, I thank you all very much for that :) 
The piece I am sharing today is a tag I have made using the fabulous Virgo digi stamp from Delicious Doodles. The image was coloured with promarkers and then layered on the tag onto the fabby background called Pile ' O' Bones also from Delicious Doodles.

Day 16 of 31 days of Halloween

Today I am going to share a mixed media page. I used up some scraps of card to cover the background then added some bits of pattern paper, some Christmas background stamps and different sprays. Yes I did say Christmas and yes I do know this is a halloween hop :) The stamps that I have used are part of the November rubber set and it's called Dark Holidaze by Rick St Dennis. I used distress inks to colour in the images, I didn't want to colour them perfectly more just smudge colours into them to give a more grungy look.  The writing on there I just did with a fine liner and yes in the past have kept my halloween decs up until Christmas...infact most of the time there are halloween dec's of some kind still out :D

This is the full set and if you want to get your hands on it then head to the rubber club page which can be found here
The other set that is on offer for November is the chicks dig guns set.
Here are a couple of things I have made in the past with this set.

Day 15 of 31 days of Halloween

Oops I am running late today! I have been out all day and forgot to do this before I left. Today I am sharing a very quick card I made. I stamped out a background stamp from the Urban Decay stamp set from smeared ink, I then heat embossed it with some copper powder. the other stamp is from the creepy L'il Grumpies rubber set also from smeared ink, both of them can be found here.

I'd like to enter this into the Following Challenges - Twine and Charm from my stash

Week 2 of smudgy antics challenge and day 14 of 31 days of halloween

I'm having laptop issues so I annoy sure how well this will work from my phone. Today I have got 2 pieces to share, the first is a page digi page, although there is nothing scary about Poe Halloween just wouldn't be Halloween with some Poe.
As the challenge is to use smeared ink only that is sall I have used. The next piece is a journal page I made last night and again only has a smeared ink stamp on it. I will have to come back later when I have got my laptop fixed alto add the links and image details.

Yay I got the laptop fixed here are all the links I couldn't (probably could have if I had the patience to figure it all out) do earlier.
The link to the Smudgy Antics challenge is here The pieces I used for the Poe piece are these papers the images I used are from the Quoth the Raven set which is no longer available as a digi stamp but can be found here as a rubber set.
For the second piece I used acrylic paints and molding paste, I decided not to use my paint brushes on…
