The final day of Smeared and Smudged 12 days of Creepmas has arrived. And I’m just warming up!! It has been fun to join in on this bloghop, even if I didn’t make it for all of the days. I hope to play a heap more now I’ve got this blog.
Today I have made two Creepmas cards for two of my besties. Now just to choose which is for which?!
I used Rick St Dennis (from Smeared Ink) ‘Dark Holidaze’ stamps on both cards. I also used ‘Words and Alphabet’ stamps by Creativ. I used H2Os by Luminarte for the background of the following card, and added my favourite crafting item – CHIPBOARD! The pieces used are: bat from Halloween Set 1, Icicle Borders (from the start made me think of dripping blood), and Gooey Alphabet (more dripping blood), all from Creative Embellishments.
Thankyou so much for visiting my new baby (the blog) for this special Creepmas bloghop!! You’re nearly finished. Next on the list is Lady Brayton, and the final stop is Alison. Enjoy! Linky >>>>>
I lost my motivation for crafting the past coupla days. I was up for it today! Yay! Had to share the space with kids though.
Here’s a card I’ve made for Miss 16. I haven’t as yet mastered the art of stamping, as you can see by the smudgeyness of the tree by Rick St Dennis. I used H2Os by LuminArte for the background. I love my H2Os! They’re so pretty when used together like this. The bats are wooden embellishments from ‘Creative Embellishments’ that I painted black.
I won’t be posting a project for today. I have nothing made 😦
It’s currently 40˚c\104˚F in Melbourne Australia. It was 35˚c \95˚F yesterday, and only 25˚c\77˚F two days before that! Bloody confusing Melbourne weather! We’re all boiling and exhausted here! I’ve decided it’s an evening for drinking vodka instead 🙂
Hope you have a great hop today\tonight and I’ll have something up ASAP. Lady Brayton is your next stop. Linky >>>>>>>>
Here we are at Day 9 of Smeared and Smudged ’12 days of Creepmas’. I didn’t think I’d make it for this one, coz today I got a migraine. My first ever delivery of Smeared Ink stamps had just arrived & I really wanted to play with them!! They are so beautiful. I don’t think my stamping project or my photos today have done them justice. I have used the ‘Dark Holidaze’ set by Rick St Dennis on plain brown paper to create my own wrapping paper.

Firstly, I’d like to inform you that my last creation’s theme was ‘The night before Christmas’. There was no mousey creeping on my card because the owl got ‘im. Now onto day 8 of Smeared and Smudged 12 days of Creepmas. I wasn’t really in the mood today, so I simply threw this together. I painted a blank coaster from Kaisercraft and then stuck the bits on top. I’m feeling a bit Bah Humbuggy myself.
Digi stamp – Smeared Ink ‘As Death’

Here is my offering for day 6 of Smeared and Smudged ’12 days of Creepmas’. The digi stamp from Smeared Ink ‘As Death’ reminded me of Scrooge in his jammies being harassed by one of the ghosts. So, I painted a box (a few times, coz I was being colour fussy and indecisive) and searched for some quotes from A Christmas Carol. The chain one was just perfect, so I searched through my old and broken jewellery to find chain that I could add. I’m quite happy with the end result. I might add more chain and quotes around the sides of the box. We’ll see how I go for time between now and xmas as I plan on using the box to pop a pressy in.
Thanks for visiting.
