Smeared and Smudged 31 DAYS OF HALLOWEEN 2013 Blog Hop - Day 29

I am so excited to be participating this year in Smeared and Smudged 31 DAYS OF HALLOWEEN 2013!
Did you know that this is their 5th annual Halloween/Day of The Dead celebration? How exciting is that!!


Here is my next project --- a card, but not just a regular card. It is an interactive “magic card”. Have you seen those “wallets” that hold cards and when you flip them your debit/credit cards are on the other side? This card is made with the same concept. As you open and close it the tag and the card move from one side to the other. 


On the card I used:  Close To My Heart Stamp Set “ Frightenin’ Phrases; Smeared Ink Stamp Sets “Creepy Li'l Grumpies” and “Quoth the Raven”; Close to My Heart Black Archival Ink; Stampin Up Cardstock in Black and green (unsure of the color name); The Paper Studio Happy Haunting Paper Stack; The Paper Studio “unknown” Paper Stack; Stampin Up Designer Paper (unsure the name); Creative Memories Tag Punch; Doodlebug Design Inc. Crushed Velvet Brad in Beetle Black; Stampin Up Label Punch; Miscellaneous-Black Tulle, orange buttons

Back Up and Running

YAY!!! 
I think everything has been resolved. Looking forward to continuing on with the blog hop. 
I look forward to sharing once again tomorrow morning! 

GLITCH!!!!

I have just realized that the past few days my 31 Days of Halloween posts never automatically posted as they were set up to do. I knew I would be unavailable until today and ought I had everything good to go. Apparently ... not so much... I am so upset. Off to try and figure out the problem and post todays project.

Smeared and Smudged 31 DAYS OF HALLOWEEN 2013 Blog Hop - Day 8


Here is my next project --- a book mark. Another idea using the tag idea that was shown by Lindsay on The Frugal Crafter blog. I kept the concept simple as I made these for one of my book club group. I needed something that could be made on a whim (I had a 2 day notice to make them), in bulk quantity and flat, very flat to be able to run through my laminator. The other twist to the challenge was you had to use what you have and they all have to look the same. No buying anything! Whew! To make 20 bookmarks under those rules was a challenge in the ribbon/fiber department. I have a LOT of fibers and ribbon, but not 18-20 feet of the same thing…I only had this ribbon. So here it is. Kinda plain looking to me, but as a flat bookmark you can only get so blingy!

On the bookmark I used:  Smeared Ink Stamp Set “Quoth the Raven”; Close to My Heart Black Archival Ink; Stampin UP Pastels; Miscellaneous Cream Cardstock, Orange Ribbon

Smeared and Smudged 31 DAYS OF HALLOWEEN 2013 Blog Hop - Day 6

I am so excited to be participating this year in Smeared and Smudged 31 DAYS OF HALLOWEEN 2013!
Did you know that this is their 5th annual Halloween/Day of The Dead celebration? How exciting is that!!

Here is my next project --- a standard size card and a smaller (shipping) tag. The tag idea came from a recent video that was shown by Lindsay on The Frugal Crafter blog. I really try and focus on using recycled and repurposed materials. A lot of what she does is the same way…making your own stencils, using different products to look like you have used something else, etc. Her website is great for the beginner or budget conscience crafter. She also has a tendency to make the “hoarding crafter” pull out supplies they may have forgotten about!! 

Yesterday was also World Card Making Day 2013 and I always particapte. I made 40 of these cards and tags to send out to friends and family for Halloween, so I tried to keep them light weight for mailing purposes and simple enough to make a bunch! 

On the tag I used:  Smeared Ink Stamp Set “Creepy Li'l Grumpies;  Close To My Heart Stamp Set  S558 “Halloween Friends”; Close to My Heart Black Archival Ink; Stampin UP Ink Pad in Whisper White; Martha Stewart punch; Stampin UP Pastels; Miscellaneous Shipping Tag, Black Tulle

On the card I used: Close To My Heart Stamp Set D1180 “Happy Haunting”; Close to My Heart Black Archival Ink; Bazzill Cardstock in: Black, Purple and White; Stampin UP Pastels; 3-D Pop Dots; Paper Studio Notecard in White;  Miscellaneous ribbon
