Wolf Boy Wobble-een

Posted on

A few weeks ago I was awarded the honor of being the guest designer for the Wobble Wednesday Challenge sponsored by Action Wobble Challenges. That means that I got to create the challenge for the week of August 28!

Wolf Boy Whimsie DoodlesI chose Halloween as my theme. Halloween is my favorite holiday! And since I usually create 10 cards each holiday to send to my nieces and nephews, I enjoyed getting a jump on my Halloween card stash this year.

Action Wobble Halloween

This is what an Action Wobble Spring looks like in action. It’s fun to give it a pluck and watch it wobble!

I used a free digital image from Whimsie Doodles and I printed it out twice so that I could cut out the Trick or Treat bag to be my wobble feature.

The grass, the sky and the cobblestone path are all created with Tim Holtz Distress Inks. You rub them on with a foam applicator and then flick  or spritz some water on them to create the speckled effect.

Action Wobble

Action Wobbles are easy to use. Just peel, stick and pluck. I purchased mine from Ellen Hutson but they are available at a variety of online stores.

If you want a list of the materials I used to create this card I’ve listed them below.

Action Wobble spring, Tim Holtz Distress Ink in colors, Mowed Lawn, Dusty Concord, Broken China and Vintage Photo. The stamps are Whimsie Doodles Wolf Boy, Hero Arts Bat Clings and Martha Stewart Clear Stamps Classic Halloween. I used various Copic Markers to color the Wolf Boy.

Happy Stamping,


Don’t Distress Over Your Birthday

Posted on

I created one more card for the CAS-ual Fridays Birthday Bash CFC99 Challenge. This one would be a little more appropriate to send to someone Michelle who is the owner and creative genius over at CAS-ual Friday Stamps.

Michelle it turning 45 and to celebrate she is spreading the love by giving participants a chance to win a $45 gift certificate to her stamp store. I would love to win this time! I already know which sets I would choose if I won…Woot Woot, Rad and WTF!

Anyway here is my card:

Clean and Simple Birthday Card

First I stamped my sentiment in Versamark ink and then clear embossed it. Then I sponged on two colors of Tim Holtz Distress ink, Worn Lipstick and Spiced Marlmalade. Finally I splattered the sentiment paper with water, let it dry and then die cut my shape.

The background of the card is done with a patterned stamp that I clear embossed as well. A little bit of Baker’s Twine and “Bam” it’s your birthday!
