Smudgy Antics Midway reminder for December's challenge

Time for the last post at Smudgy Antics for us in the DT, since the challenge is closing down in the end of December! 

As usual it's Anything goes and if you want to add a twist, use Creepmas as your theme! =)

I did some recycling, we went to After Work and had hamburgers last Friday, so I saved the plastic decorations from the burgers and made Christmas decorations instead. =)

So here are one not so usual Christmas character and the text "God Jul" that means Merry Christmas in swedish! Will add more pics later of the other decorations whenI get some better lightning! =)

The Vampire Bunny got to make an apparence in green and red this time! =) Flanked by my "God Jul" signs he's taken place in the orchid on the windowsill! =)

Don't forget that you have to use a Smeared Ink rubber stamp or digital stamp to enter our challenge, otherwise you're not in the draw for a prize! =)

Smudgy Antics December challenge

It's time for the last challenge at Smudgy Antics for this year and since the challenge blog is closing due to few entries this will sadly be the last challenge! 

As usual it's Anything Goes with a twist of Creepmas, so make this really creepy if you can and don't forget that you have to use a Smeared Ink image, digital or rubber to enter this challenge!

I used the little creeper MiSk for my Creepmas card and colored with my promarkers, the clothing got a candy cane look and the bow a nice green tone. =) Blue and white hair looked good too! =)

For the background I used a brown cs + scraps from the drippy go punch. Then I added this onto a creepy christmas paper and finally a red cs as the cardbase. =) Almost forgot, added a half pearl to one of the eyes as a creepy detail. =)

Hope you will join in on this last challenge!

Smeared Ink November challenge Anything Goes + a twist

A new challenge for Smeared Ink starts today at Smudgy Antics! As usual it's Anything Goes with the optional twist of "Metal Madness"! =)

I used three different images this time: It's about time pocketwatch, Specimen jar and label from The Specimen Jar rubber stamp set.

All the images are colored with promarkers + a silver gel pen for the lid and the watches. Added some poisonous fumes in the jar and outside. For the labtable I used tinfoil to add a little more metal to my card! =) The background is a scrap paper with a faint pattern and I used gray cardstock for the card base. The clock on the table is raised up with 3D pillows.

So come and join in and remember that you have to use a Smeared Ink digital or rubber image on your project! =)

Smudgy Antics Midway reminder - Anything Goes with a twist

Time for the midway reminder for our Smudgy Antics Anything Goes challenge, with the optional twist of Ghosts and Ghouls! =)

I made a  wallhanging with Toy and Kingston, in a scary forest, or that was my intention! =)

First I colored all the images with my promarkers, then let them dry and cut them all out with my scissors. Added a half pearl to Kingston's eye and  raised him up on 3D pillows + one of  Toy too. 
Then I went to look for paper, didn't end up with the first ones but found one in a pack that I used to make threes of.
Also found a Graphics 45 paper with a nice sign that looked perfect together with Toy x 3 and Kingston. =)

For the last touch I used my Drippy Goo punch that I got for my birthday, finally it's mine! =)

Scanned the wall hanging so not sure if the 3D effect is visible but it looks good to me!

Don't forget to join our challenge and that you must use a Smeared Ink image, digital or rubber + link back to our challenge and to your blogpost and not only your blog's address. =)

Forgot to tell you about the sale, just go to Smeared Ink and you will find a lot of fantastic images! =)

Smudgy Antics October challenge - Anything Goes with a twist

Time for Octobers challenge at Smudgy Antics and as usual Anything Goes, there is a twist this time too and that is Ghosts and Ghouls! =)

As always, you have to use a Smeared Ink stamp to join this challenge, rubber or digital! =)

Now to the fun part, I used one of the new digis called Sorrow for my card and was inspired by a book I recently read. It's called Anna dressed in blood by Kendare Blake!

I colored Sorrow, as a ghost, in gray tones and added red for the eyes, tears and lips. Cut her out from the white paper and added her to a background with spiderwebb. Then added another red patterend paper just behind the spiderwebb, to make it stand out a little more. For the cardbase I used a black cs and then just a few small half pearls as a the final touch. 

Hope you will like our new challenge and come and join in! =)

Smeared Ink is back and here are the new challenge + hop for September

Smeared Ink is back again and to celebrate that we are having a blog hop here at Smudgy Antics! =)

I wanted to make something fun so used three dancing skeletons for my card, colored them and then added crackle accent on them for a more cracked look. Cut them out and added them to the card with just a little glue so that the limbs looks like they are moving. =)
Used a Christmas paper with party lights on it for the background + a Grumpie quote and a text I came up with. =) "what are you looking at." are the Grumpie quote and "haven't you seen skeletons dance before?" are my invention.

So hope you will like this festive card and join us on this new challenge "Anything goes" with the optional twist this month which is "Feeling a little grumpy". =) Just remember to use a Smeared Ink image, rubber stamp or digital stamp!

The blog roll for the hop is here below, so get hopping! =)

I'm adding this card to the following challenges:

Första dagen på jobbet efter mammaledighet nr.1

Tillbaka på jobbet efter att ha varit hemma i nästan 7,5 månad med Allan, kändes lite udda att fara hemifrån imorse utan att han var med. Det har dock gått bra och vi har en ganska lugn vecka så lite mjukstart är alltid bra. 
Allt har gått bra här hemma också, så det är skönt, de har haft fullt upp nu när mannen är pappaledig, på onsdag ska de gå på babysim också, så hoppas det går bra.

Varit på möte på lassa idag, pappa åkte in akut förra måndagen med en stroke, dock så har han blivit piggare men har mycket träning kvar att göra innan han kan gå och röra sig utan stöd. Tur att en bekant till honom såg hur det var fatt och skickade in honom hit med ambulans i tid. 
Så det har varit lite fullt upp nu, även tränat Allan i att bara amma endast morgon och em/kväll under hela förra veckan, så att omställning till att jag börjat jobba ska gå smidigare och det funkar rätt bra. Endast jag som måste pumpa en gång på dagen annars blir det för jobbigt för mig, men det går hyfsat bra än så länge.

Dax att sova så att jag är mer vaken imorgon på jobbet, har lite möten som vi ska gå på.

Smudgy Antics August challenge - Anything Goes

A new challenge is up at Smudgy Antics and the optional twist this month is "Creepy Creatures." =)

For my DT-project I choose to work with the Candy corn monster and colored it with my promarkers. Found some signs on a Halloween Christmas paper with candy theme. I combined the ticket with the candy sign and wrote: to "Candy"land on it! =) Found some paper scraps that worked for the background and then a blue cs for the cardbase.

So this is my take on a creepy creature, not sure I would like to meet this candy monster on a dark night! =)

Smudgy Antics July Challenge: Anything Goes - with a twist

July's challenge at Smudgy Antics comes with a twist:

We want to see your Poe inspired projects....
you can take inspiration from his poems... stories.... his life...from films inspired by his work..
think ravens...lost love... beating hearts... or orangutans!

I made a Poe box from a pink box with a plastic cover, that came with biscuit recipes and a cookie cutter. From pink to black, red and white. =)
The box is painted black and the little compartments are covered with a paper from the digital Poe boy paper kit with a heart pattern. Then I used a lot of Poe digis colored with red, gray and pale face color promarkers.
All the images are added with 3D pillows or tape, I used an edge scraper around the sentiment in the upper left corner.

This is the box with the cover on.

I made thus card for my mother, since she's an amazing person and she liked it a lot, I just translated the words into swedish inside the card. =

Smudgy Antics June challenge - Use no more than three colors

Time for my first post and I have used recycled material for this project! The twist this month is: Use no more than three colors! =)

It started with an empty strawberry box and packaging from dish brushes. =)

I used a lot of the Mer people from Smeared Ink and made an ocean scene, the paper with bubbles are from the dish brush packaging, the perfect setting for the Mer Queen and her attendants! =)
All the images are colored in green, blue and brown tones with my promarkers, also added glass pearls I bought at IKEA a long time ago as the ocean.
The swirls are made with Quikutz die and I used a dark green paper and a thicker paper with glitter on it.

Hope you will enjoy my project and join us in our new challenge! Remember that if you use an Smeared Ink image you are entered twice in the draw for winning a digital image and a rubber stamp!

Mycket har hänt på sistone!

Här har det varit fullt upp på sistone, inte bara med Allan utan även med annat! =)
När vi planerade dopet så kom vi på den smidiga idéen att även gifta oss, så har pysslat med det och planerat allt runt det också, utan att avslöja något för familj och vänner.

Här skymtar fikabordet och min fina brudbukett! =)

Så den 2 maj döpte vi Allan, han fick namnen Jakob (från pappans sida) Allan (efter gammelfarfar) och Harry (efter min morfar). Vi fick en underbar och lite förvirrad präst som gjorde ett jättebra jobb och en kompis sjöng "För kärlekens skull" under vigseln. Som tur var hade vi två vänner som fotade åt oss och har fått många fina kort av dem. =)

Fikade efter vigseln och dopet i samlingsalen och flera hade hjälpt till att baka så det var bara att äta för fullt. Allan har fått en hel del fina och bra saker, så nu finns det böcker, leksaker och lite praktiska saker som bestick och tallrikar. =)

Fina Ålidhems kyrkan:

Så numera är vi alla familjen Jakobsson, så måste ta och ändra efternam, skaffa nytt körkort mm.

Allan växer för fullt, sist så vägde han 5340 g och var 62,5 cm lång, idag lyckades han vända sig på mage för första gången, det händer verkligen saker hela tiden nu. Kan knappt inse att han är 4,5 månad redan! =)

Dragonfly Dreams - How does your garden grow?

A new challenge is up at Dragonfly Dreams and this time it's all about flowers and how you are growing your garden or about things you would like to have there! =) 

Our sponsor this time is Fred She Said and I used this lovely Bearded Iris for my card.

The iris is colored with three different shades of purple and three different shades of yellow using my promarkers. I shaded the leaves and stems a little but it's hard to see. The purple dots are made with my pearl maker, a good buy! =) Used a blue paper behind it for the sky and a butterfly patterned paper for the card base.

Hope you will enjoy looking at out DT samples and join in on our new challenge! =)

I am doing a featured spot at Recycle, Re-Purpose and Re-Invent in May!

I was asked to do a featured spot at Recycle, Re-Purpose and Re-Invent for May so here it is! =)

I used the sewing kit from CS Designs and colored all the images with my promarkers. The box is decorated with a dp I had since before and then the inside is decorated with washi tape with a sewing theme. Added all the images with 3D pillows, double sided tape and glue dots, made some support from scraps behind a few of the images. Added fuzzy string and some other small pieces to the box as well. The name is printed in word and I used my MS Lace punch to created the border around it.

Mine and only mine

I found this fabulous Dragon image and just had to make something with it for today's DT-inspiration on Smudgy Antics, it's called Skull Keeper and it was so much fun to color in many different green shades and I added glitter and pearl maker for the eyes. Did some shading on the skulls too, that was fun! =)

Just found papers that matched and hopefully makes the dragon stand out a little too, so used an Asian inspired paper and a matching background paper from another kit.

So hope you will enjoy today's card and join on in the fun in our Anything Goes challenge here at Smudgy Antics! =) 

Don't forget to use a Smeared Ink image on your creation! =)

Grumpies rule

For today's inspiration at Smudgy Antics I did some recycling! I made pizza with pinapple rings on yesterday and realized that I could use the tin for today's project.

I printed out three grumpies and three sentiments, colored the grumpies in three different colors and shaded them. Then I cut out the sentiments and found a patterned paper to use as the background.

I glued everything on the tin and it looks fun, so I'm happy with it! =)

Don't forget to be able to enter our Anything goes challenge you have to use atleast one Smeared Ink image in your project! =)
