Bloody Valentine Blog hop 2012, day 1

***Looking for MY CRAFTERS CAFE HOP??? scroll down one more post***

Hello and welcome to day 1 of The Bloody Valentine Blog hop sponsored by Smeared and Smudged! You should have arrived here from Jennifer's blog.  If you get lost along the way, or just stumbled upon this hop by visiting my blog, the entire list of Hop members is on the left. I suggest you start at the beginning, you'd don't want to miss anything :)

I have 2 offerings to share today. :) first up, scary, creepy, bloody!!

it is a  4 X 4 (chunky book page or fat page).
 The background paper is a digi one, do not remember where I got it, it is printed on glossy presentation paper, after attaching it to the chipped board, I paint black paint around the edges and smeared what was left on the brush in the center, I let it start to dry and then with a wet paper towel wiped and smeared it, removing some. The Nosferatu Digi stamp is from STRANGE SKIN. he is colored with markers by STAMPIN' UP. The Sentiment and short poem is my own and computer generated. The flying heart is from an old free collage sheet , it is on the same presentation paper, and attached to white card stock to give it more stability. I fussy gut it, and applied foam dots to the back. The rick rack is from my stash.

Next up is a more funny/funky ODD Valentine card, depicting creation of a love potion.
Card stock by STAMPIN' UP, printed paper scraps are digi papers from PAPERTREY INK. The Digi Image is from THE STAMPING BOUTIQUE. It is colored with markers by STAMPIN' UP. The heart doily was rec'd as a RAK. I used 2 different scalloped circle punches by STAMPIN' UP.
The ingredients that will make the love potion are listed on the card: "Toe jam of the one you love", "frog's brain", and "Vampire Vomit". The flame on the bunson burner is very special as it is dragon fire!

This card is also helping promote The Crafters Cafe which is also having an event this weekend, and The Stamping Boutique is one of the sponsors.
