It is a “Me” ATC

So…I recently joined a swap to do an ATC. Not sure what drove me to do it except it looked like fun. What is an ATC you ask, well I didn’t really know either so I looked it up – it is an Artist Trading Card and artist all over create these little mini (2.5″X3.5) works of art and trade them with each other.

They are adorable and fun, and while I don’t see myself trading a lot, (though I never say never :)) I do think think they could be used in so many other ways – you could mount them on the front of a card, put them in a scrapbook, use them as a tip in for your Bible journaling, just to name a few.

So what does this have to do with my post today? Well…Sweet N Sassy came out with this new stamp set called Girl Power and for some reason it made me think of the Wii avatars (Mii) and I saw myself in the choices. I thought how fun would it be to create a “Me” on an ATC so if I did trade, it would be kinda like a self portrait (haha!)

It was so much fun! I chose my hairstyle, colored her with Copics, and added Glasses. I fussy cut her and mounted her on a mixed media piece  (which includes some inking of Texture Tiles 1 Clear Stamp Set and was messy and sooo fun all by itself), then I stamped a few power words from the May 2018 Stamp of the Month: Scripty Thoughts set “Blessings, Prayers, and, Love” and cut them out to add to my ATC.

In the end, these cute little cards make me very happy. They are bright, colorful and fun (which I have said like a hundred times now so it tells you how great it really is!) I am going to use one in my Bible and the other I am going to frame as a little work of art 🙂

I hope you were inspired!!

SNSS Bitty Blossoms

Today I have a set of cards using some of the new stamp sets from Sweet N Sassy Stamps… Itty Bitty Blossoms and the new May 2018 Stamp of the Month: Scripty Thoughts. These sets are sweet and versatile!

Today I have a birthday card using a Little Miss Muffet image called Dudley’s Friend Stanley. I had some fun paper with numbers all over it and I thought it was perfect for a birthday card so… Here it is:

Happy Birthday Blossoms

For card, I grabbed some stuff from my stash…  I really don’t do that too often but it is so fulfilling – son’t cha think?

I had a panel of cardstock inked up with distress inks and I took the entire sheets of Itty Bitty Blossoms stamps (before I moved them) and used it like a background stamp. I  inked it with Versamark then used copper embossing powder from WOW. I colored in some of the images more with Distress Ink so they wouldn’t blend into the background too much. Then I found an already die cut “happy” which I triple embossed with the same copper powder. I used the word “birthday” from the May 2018 Stamp of the Month: Scripty Thoughts to finish it off and I think it is a pretty fun result!

I hope you are inspired! Thanks so much for stopping by!

LMMS Challenge #188 – I love you!

Badge for Sidebar

We have a new challenge at Little Miss Muffet Stamps – (Challenge #188  as usual, it is “Anything Goes!”).

This week, I am using Polka Dot Pals Peter for a masculine card – which I need to stock up on! This little guy is signing “I love you” in ASL. Little Miss Muffet is building up a fun collection of ASL images and they are all adorable! 

I colored Peter up with Copics then I actually used designer paper on the card – It is from Papertrey Ink. I have relied on my own backgrounds for a while so it was fun to did through my enormous stash of paper. I added some twine and a banner tag then hand wrote the sentiment (oh yes I did – brave right!?)

Come on over and join in on Challenge #188 – Anything Goes!  There are prizes… For our prizes, one lucky winner will be awarded a $10.00 Gift Voucher to the LMMS shop. We like to select a couple other projects to highlight as well.  Good Luck!

Spring Flowers~ Tiddly Inks Blog Hop

Today I have a fun card using a Coloring Page from Tiddly Inks called Thankful Heart. This is currently a freebie in the store but I have had it printed out for a while and decided to color it up with my Copics and practice some of my “transparency” coloring with this glass jar.

I created this card today for the Spring Themed Blog Hop at Tiddly Inks. Spring to me means flowers! I love to put a jar of flowers on my table so I can smile every time I walk by. This jar would definitely do the trick!

Jump in and hop along!! The Hop starts at 6:00PM Central – it should be so much fun. I can’t wait to see what other people created!

LMMS – Collect Beautiful Moments

Oh My Goodness – this Whimsy stamp called Posey makes me so happy! It is just adorable! In the end, water colored 2 of them because I was testing papers with my Zig Clean Brush Markers…(I’ll do something with the other one later). This is the Bristol and I think I like it better than the other which was on watercolor paper – It ran less so it was easier to keep it in the lines.

I added a sticker from Small Talk by Tim Holtz. I am surprised but I really like it for my sentiment.  I have had them for what seems live forever but have never used them. I think it is a perfect fit! Do you do that? Hold onto something then when you use it you are just thrilled with the result? What do you have that could add to your card/project that you haven’t used for whatever reason??

SNSS – Be Unique!

Today I have a couple more cards using the oh so cute and utterly adorable Sweet N Sassy Stamps Be Unique Clear Stamp Set.

First, I took all of the sentiments and smaller images and created a subway art style set up. I embossed it in with versa mark and white embossing powder. Then I got rainbow inky with Distress Oxide Inks. I went simple with the layout since the sentiment layout really “spoke” for itself (pun intended :))

While I was playing in the ink, I created a panel for my second card. I used a stitched die cut for a frame and created a simple shaker card with some shaker shapes I found at Micheal’s – they were in a container like a collection of spices come in and the colors were so perfect, I just had to buy them! I embossed the sentiment on the transparency and stamped a unicorn on watercolor paper and colored it up with my polychromos pencils. (I really like the way the texture and pencils worked together.) I fussy cut it and added it to the corner of my card.These were so much fun to make! I hope they’ve inspired you!
