It is time for a new challenge at Little Miss Muffet Stamps – Challenge #143 – Anything Goes!

As you know I am in Georgia and boy is it HOT here! So I decided maybe a little Christmas in July wouldn’t be a bad idea. There are some new Christmas images in the shop but I fell in love with this train holding, Rudolf slipper wearing cutie! Swings ‘n Slides Christmas Morning

Hang Loose

Today I have a little summer inspiration at From the Heart Stamps. I used one of the new summer images Hang Loose Birdbrain. I combined two the birdbrains – like they are pals right? I added some rainstones to look like water drops (I love things!)

LMMS Change #142 – Scraps


Badge for Sidebar

It is that time again (WOW! this summer is flying by!) We have a new challenge at Little Miss Muffet Stamps – Challenge #142 – Anything Goes!

For my card today, I went pretty simple. The fun part was using a scrap for the base. I had previously cut an 8.5″X 11″ piece of cardstock down to 8.5″X 8.5″ and put that little 2.5 inch strip to the side (ok if I am honest, I left at the cutter where it fell…) I saw it while I was coloring up my image and thought it would make a precious mini card. I matched the size of dies to the card and mounted my little guy on a base and that is it. I think this is would make a fun lunchbox card – what do you guys think? Do you ever have scraps laying around that this would work for??

LMMS Slurp copy

This little guy is called Slurp (and I have it on pretty good authority he is about to go rubber – you heard it here first folks :)) I had seen a “soda” sentiment and I thought it was perfect so I tried some handwriting – definitely need more practice with that, but maybe in time…

I colored him with my Polychromos pencils. I printed a bunch of images on Neenah Solar white because I kept hearing how much people loved it for Copic coloring. I do not love it for Copic as it seems to bleed too much (I just stick with my Xpress it paper for Copics). I do love for colored pencils as it has enough tooth to really take the pencil well. So I have a few more to color with pencils now.

Recipe:

  • Images: Slurp stamps from Little Miss Muffet Stamps
  • Paper: White cardstock (PTI), Black cardstock (Recollections)
  • Ink: Polychromos pencils
  • Other: Basic Backdrop and Polka Dot Rectangle Backdrop Die Set. I love these two die sets – I use one or both on almost every card!

FTHS Stamp of the Month Challenge – June

This month’s Stamp of the Month (Ice Cream Lineup) image is adorable! This week I am trying to practice some with my colored pencils so CAS it is!

FTHS SOTM copy

I printed my image out on Neenah Solar White 110lb card stock and used my polychromos color pencils then added a doodle around the sentiment to tie it into the image. I added some Wink of Stella to the silver dish and some Glossy Accents to the cherry. Then rounding the corner was the final touch and that is all there was to it.

There is plenty of time to join the SOTM challenge at From the Heart Stamps so what are you waiting for!!
