It is time for a new challenge at Little Miss Muffet Stamps – Challenge #145 – And as always it is Anything Goes!

Today I created a quick CAS card. I am so crazy busy at work so CAS is all I have time for. But I needed some color time and this new Polka Dot Pal – Shutterfly begged me to color her. Who am I to say no?!

School is back in session!

Summer is over and school is back in session. My little sister is a first grade teacher and I decided she deserved a special back to school card so I made a sweet card for using one of the From the Heart Stamps snowmen (so sorry little sister – we can’t have forever summer!). It is a simple card using Back to School Snowman. I created the background using the border pieces and the nerdy snowman for the focal point – isn’t it adorable!!!

More Christmas in July

OK – I know this is August, but I worked on these cards over the weekend and it was still July🙂 So, these two cards are using the rest of the pieces of my challenge card last week. It was actually fun to have bases ready to simply add an image to. It allowed me to just sit back and color – the fun of it all is in the coloring don’t ‘cha think?

My cards today use: Little Miss Muffet digis Kiki’s Gifts and Forest Friends Christmas Stuart. Such sweet images!

FTHS August Blog Hop – Use Your Stash

Welcome to our From the Heart Stamps June blog hop! If you have arrived from KELLY’S BLOG, you are in the right place, if not why don’t you start on the From the Heart Stamps Blog, so you don’t miss anything.

Today’s theme is USE YOUR STASH – We are digging into drawers and pulling out papers, and embellishments, and such.

Today I went with an image I colored in December and never put onto a card. Since Snowman Greeting has been in my stash just waiting to be used, and our theme was to “Use Your Stash”, now is as good a time as any right?? I also found a card base and black background waiting in my bin so… I went with it. I dug into my embellishments and looked for “snow stuff” and found some snowflake sequins that I bought last summer to make shaker cards (never happened but maybe this Christmas I will get to it :)) add some clear crystals that I have had forever and that finished off my card.

FTHS Snnnowman Greeting

Recipe for my card:

  • Image: Snowman Greeting digi by From the Heart Stamps
  • Sentiment: Snowlady and Cardinal digi set by From the Heart Stamps
  • Paper: White card base (PTI) Black card mounting (Recollection), DP Digital Paper
  • Ink: Inktense Pencils
  • Other: Basic Backdrop Dies (AJVD), Snowflake Sequins and Crystals.

As you hop along, please leave a comment on each blog. One random commenter will be selected on each blog to win an image of choice from the FTHS store. And one lucky commentator on the FTHS blog has the chance to win a $ 15 voucher.

Thanks for hopping with us today. The hop will end on Sunday Aug 7th at 6 am EST. Winners will be posted on the From the Heart Stamps Blog on Wednesday Aug 10th.

Now head over to MICHELLE’S BLOG and see what inspiration she has for you.

Have fun and have a wonderful week!!

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!

Come on over and join in on Challenge #142 – 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!
