For some mid-week inspiration from Little Miss Muffet Stamps this week, I created a fun little shaker card. My card today uses Jr. Hatter FrankieLMMS Frankie copy

I went with some fun bright colors but no patterned paper. Though in order to create some movement, I added a subtle tone on tone background with versamark and a background image.

This little girl reminds me of a sweet kindergartner that I think may love getting “real mail” – so it is going to get a stamp and a post mark this week.

Recipe:

  • Image: Jr. Hatter Frankie digi stamp from LMMS
  • Backround: Background Check clear stamps by The Alley Way Stamps
  • Sentiment: Big Scripty Greetings from Simon Says Stamps
  • Paper: White card stock (PTI), brown, hot pink, and lime green (Recollections)
  • Ink: Image – Copics (clothes) YG00, YG01, YG03, YG05, RV21, RV23, RV25, RV29, (hair) Y21, YR24, YR27, (dog) E40, E42, E43, E44, E47, E49
  • Other: Basic Backdrop Dies (AJVD), Stitched Circle Dies (Simon Says Stamps), Glitter and sequins (stash)

Thinking of you today!

lmms-dt-lilithIt’s Thursday and it’s time for some mid-week inspiration at Little Miss Muffet. The image I used is called  Jr Hatter Ashley. I adore these hatters – don’t you?!

LMMS Jr Hatter Ashley copy

I am not sure about you, but I often try techniques a couple of times before it “feels” right for a project, but then later on, one of the “not quite right” pieces looks good for another project.

I found an old background paper that I created with Laura Bassen’s distressed ink smoosh technique and decided to create a project using it. In order to blend my image with my background, I matched up my Copics with the distress inks and then I pulled out a technique that I haven’t done in a while… the Color Creative Classroom Backgrounds – Marbleization. I can’t decide how I feel about it but I think it will either grow on me or I will do it again to see if I can love it…

Recipe:

  • Image –  Jr Hatter Ashley digi image from LMMS
  • Sentiment – I wrote it with memento black a marker
  • Paper – White base (PTI), black card(Recollections), Time Holtz Water Color Paper
  • Ink – Copics  (background) W00, RV52, Y00, V01, V04, RV21 (Image) Y04, Y06, Y08, V12, V15, V17, RV21, RV23, RV25, E29, E31, E33, E35, E37, E39, E00, E02, E11, E21, C5, C9, Y26; Distress Ink, Mustard Seed, Seedless Preserves, Abandoned Coral, White Gel Pen
  • Other – Basic Backdrop Die and Polka dot Backdrop Die (AJVD), Stitched Square Dies (Simon Says Stamps), Fish Tail Die (My Favorite Things), Fun Foam

HB2U!

Today’s card is a for Kathy’s Pop Up Challenge at The Daily Marker. Her Challenge was to just use lines…Casual Friday HB2U copyI have been wanting to try this with random geometric patterns since I saw THIS 30 day challenge card. Maybe next time I will try to be more loosey goosey with my lines. This could be addictive…

CAS-ual Friday is having a patterns and CAS challenge CFC142 so I felt that the perfect addition to my background was the big chunky birthday sentiment from Casual Fridays’ Whole Shebang set. I can’t wait to use this stamp set again!

Aside from a fat Sharpie, my Zig clean color real brush pens, and the sentiment, very little else was used. I used some rectangle dies and black mounting paper to complete the look of the crisp lines and I LOVE, LOVE it!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hello There! – Challenge #118 at LMMS!

Badge for Sidebar

It’s time for a new Challenge at Little Miss Muffet Stamps! Challenge #118 is an Anything Goes Challenge! My card today uses bright colors and another one of the monster images… Monster SidLMMS Monster SidI went bright and fun with my paper and simple with my layout. I added a big sentiment directly onto the background designer paper. Overall this card makes me pretty happy which is a nice thing since I have had a crazy week where pink eye was introduced to me – in both eyes.

Everyone told me not to worry that two days of antibiotics would cure it and all would be well. WRONG! Five days of antibiotics and it was worse…Apparently it was viral and that lasts for 2-3 weeks and has to cure itself! Grrr!! I was feeling like a monster myself – my ophthalmologist did prescribe an antihistamine so I am finally feeling more like myself even if I do still look a little like an extra on a zombie movie.

Have a great week and come and join the challenge! There are prizes to won after all!!

Recipe:

  • Image: Monster Sid digi stamp from LMMS
  • Sentiment: Handwritten Sentiment (Jillibean Soup)
  • Paper: White card stock (PTI), Brown card (stash), Digital designer paper (Happy Heart Creations), Designer Paper (Hip Hip Hooray from Doodlebug Design Inc)
  • Ink: Image – Copics W1, W3, W5, (shadows), YG01, YG03, YG05, YG07, YG09, B02, B04, B05, B06, E71, E77, E79
