Day 12 - 12 Days of Christmas

Sorry everyone - but I have nothing for you today. I've been super swamped trying to get some work done so I won't be working my entire vacation. It didn't allow me any time for creating. I will try to make it up for you after I complete my real work. Stupid work. :(

Please visit the other jolly bloggers though!




Day 11 - 12 Days of Christmas

Today is another digi day! I used Watchful Eye for today's offering and decided to get a little dark for ya! Enjoy!



Day 10 - 12 Days of Christmas

Oh my - so sorry everyone! i'm a day late on this one! I completely lost track of time - my family came into town and I seemed to have forgotten my project. Here is Day 10 - no worries if you can't comment. I won't count it against you when I tally up the entries for the prize. Thanks for stopping by anyway!

My offering for Day 10 is from Smeared Ink's Steampunk Christmas set. I used my watercolor pencils for the very first time. Whatcha think? I like them and think I'll be working with them again in the near future. :)

Happy hopping everyone!


Day 9 of 12 Days of Christmas

Sorry I'm late! I've got so much going on today that I completely forgot my post. I made these ornaments for my christmas tree. Two are Angels from Smeared Ink's Symbology of Angels set and the church is from the Holy City set. Hope you like them - I do have to say that the Muse Angel (wings pointed to the sky) is my favorite. I colored him with my new Copics and I love the way these markers work!

Enjoy your hop today!



Day 8 of 12 Days of Christmas

Helllloooooooo everyone! Wow - Day 12 is creeping up on us, isn't it? It always happens so fast! Today I bring you a not-so traditional card using a naughty image from our Femdom set. I colored her with a combination of my Copics and Prismacolor markers. The "You've Been Naughty" senti is also from the Femdom set.

Enjoy your hop today and I'll see you back on Day 9!



Day 7 of 12 Days of Christmas

Welcome back! Today I decided to go DIGITAL! I used one of Ike's freebie images - Xmas Troll (thanks IKE!) and some presents from the Gothic Christmas. I colored everything digital and added a swamp background. All of my photo manipulations and coloring were done in Photoshop. Hope you like it!

Enjoy the hop today!!



Day 6 of 12 Days of Christmas

Good morning and Happy Day 6! I'm going to have to make this post a little short and to the point because I have a lot of things to get done today. Sorry! Here is my offering - I used the Steampunk Plague Doctor. Please don't forget to visit all the other wonderful Jolly Bloggers and leave them some love!



Day 5 of 12 Days of Christmas

Howdy folks and welcome to DAY 5! We're almost to the half-way point which means Christmas is right around the corner! Are you guys ready?

Today I offer you a sweet little Stitchy Doll stuffed Stocking. I was inspired by Kelli's Day 3 project so I thought I'd make a stocking to hang on my tree. I colored my Stitchy Doll with Copics and pieced the stocking together using some Graphic45 paper. Then I added a bit of ribbon and sprayed the entire thing with gold glitter. The pictures aren't that great - for that I apologize. I think he looks better in person because the glitter doesn't get in the way. Anyhoo, enjoy your hopping today!

Oh yea, and I made this video just for you guys. Click at your own risk!
Merry Christmas Video



Day 4 of 12 Days of Christmas!

Welcome to Day 4 everyone! At this rate December is just going to fly by! I can't believe how fast it's happening and I still have so much to do before the holiday!

Here is my day 4 offering. I used the Deer Skull from the Gothic Christmas set. My goal for this card was to make it as "country" as I could stand it. LOL. My husband is a hunter so I thought he would love this card. Of course, I forgot to show it to him this morning, doi!

Anyhooo, I hope you like it and please don't forget to stop by our other Jolly Bloggers and leave them some love :)

Here's the blog roll:




Day 3 of 12 Days of Christmas!

Thanks for coming back - I hope you all are enjoy our Smeared & Smudged Christmas creations! I'm going to keep my post simple and sweet today because it's past my bed time.

Here is my day 3 offering - I used the new Smeared Ink Steampunk Santa and colored him with my distress inks. The other elements were from paper packs - I added some ribbon and glossy accents to make it look pretty (you can probably tell that I took the pic before the glossy accents was dry - I'm a very impatient person, sorry about that!)

Hope you like it!

And please don't forget to visit the other bloggers and leave them some love!




Day 2 - 12 Days of Christmas!

Welcome to Day 2 of our 12 Days of Christmas! If you didn't catch Day 1, scroll down to my previous post and check out all the details. There is a prize involved!

OK, so I have made a creation today using one of Smeared Ink's new digi images, Drinking Buddy Elfette. Earlier this week Smeared Ink released some awesome Christmas digis in addition to some really cool vintage digis. If you'd like to check them out you can click here to go to the Smeared Ink shop. To celebrate the release our design team has come together and created some wonderful projects for you to see using some of the new images. Most of them are on the 12 Days of Christmas hop, but a couple are not, so I will list the 12 Days of Christmas blog roll first and then the rest of the DT that made samples just for today that you can check out as well... Have fun hopping today!

 Here is the hop list:



A little extra inspiration from our DT that isn't in the 12 Days of Christmas Hop:

Here is my offering for Day 1. I've used one of Smeared Ink's new digis "Steampunk Sugarplum Fairy", colored her with my Copics and Prismacolor markers, and then cut her out. Then, I used some paper from Recollections "Old Fashioned Christmas" and stenciled in some different images with my distress inks. My sentiment "Visions of Sugar Plums" was also cut from the paper collection. I pop dot mounted my sentiment to some of the base paper and cut it all out - then added some Glossy Accents to make the letters really shine. I pop dot mounted my sugar plum fairy and added some small plastic star "sugar", applied Glossy accents to her goggles, and then took the entire thing outside and sprayed with gold glitter spray. I took two photos for you so you could see the reflections of the glitter too. Hope you like it!
