LMMS Challenge #202 Old Fashioned Christmas Truck

Badge for Sidebar

For today’s new challenge #202 at Little Miss Muffet, I combined two of the new truck sets for an old fashioned Christmas scene. I used Holiday Truck and Old Time Pick Up TruckBy cropping the Christmas trees in Holiday Pickup, I was easily able to add them to the Old Time Pick Up. This adds so many more choices to this set! I colored it all with Copics and added a sentiment from Sweet N Sassy called Old Fashioned Christmas – it just seemed to fit.

Come on over and join in on Challenge #202 – 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!

SNSS Happy Birthday Sweet ‘N Sassy Stamps!

Hi Friends! Today’s post is a pretty fun one because it is part of a month long celebration for Sweet N Sassy Stamp’s 11th Birthday! I made a birthday tag using Party Hat Cocoa Digital Stamp to get things started! (I love Cocoa Mouse – don’t you?!)

As part of the celebration, there are different prizes every week and this week it is FREE US Shipping with the code “HAPPY11FREESHIP”My inspiration projects today are a little surprise for my sister. She is a big time scrapbooker and my favorite person to create for. When I send her a card she thanks me for the “embellishment” and adds it to a page. Soooo today I made her an actual embellishment using a great little clear stamp set from 2013 called Snowman Soup.

I bought this mug die cut this summer and have just been waiting for the inspiration to use it – this stamp set was just what I needed! I decided to decorate my mug with a winter scene by stamping my snowman and making him a bit taller. I wanted to color it with color pencils because they are so great on dark colored paper. I was not disappointed.

I created a little journaling card to go into it so she can journal the page and tuck it into the mug. I decorated the bottom corner with one of the smaller snowmen in the set.I was having so much fun, I also created a little ATCoin thinking she could pop it somewhere too. I colored this up with Copics – you can see the difference in vibrancy when it is beside the color pencil snowman. I really like them both in different ways!

Here is the whole set – I think she is going to love it!

I hope you are inspired today to just create something and have fun doing it. Try different mediums and see what you like best.

Thanks for stopping by and joining the celebration!

Bugaboo – Sketch Challenge

Today I am playing along with Stella Says Sketch challenge at Catch the Bug.

I am loving the fun new fall images at Bugaboo and this Squirrel is no exception. The look on his face make me think he is thinking something naughty haha!

I actually dug in my stash today and used some DP for my card so one less piece of paper in a stack of many – woo hoo! I printed my image on 80# Neenah Solar white and colored it with my Polychromos pencils. My sentiment is from Carta Bella”Just Be You” Set.

Head on over to Catch the Bug and join in on the challenge. You have two weeks and there are prizes to win!

Bugaboo – Birthday Monkey!

Today I have an Oldie but Goodie for some inspiration at Bugaboo Stamps! I created a CAS card using Birthday Monkey Topper Digi Stamp

I grabbed my Copics and colored the image up first, then wasn’t able to find coordinating design paper so I created my own background by smooshing a little Distress Oxides on watercolor paper then embossing it with a birthday folder when it dried.

I used a sentiment from Papertrey Ink’s Keep it Simple Birthday set

I hope you are inspired to color with your favorite colors then create the coordinating paper 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!

SNSS All Wrapped Up Christmas!

Today I have another CAS card using Sweet N Sassy’s All Wrapped Up clear stamp set. To show its versatility, I went with the same layout from yesterday’s Birthday card and made today’s card a Christmas card.

Just like the birthday card layout , I stamped the front package, then masked it and stamped the stack of packages to the back. I colored up this one with color pencils. Before adding the image, I splattered some color on the background piece (using a water brush and inktense pencils) then I added the sentiment.

Here they both are:

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you are inspired – Maybe you want to try a creating multiple looks with the same image?

SNSS Birthday Water Color

Today I have a sweet and simple birthday card using one of this month’s new stamp sets at Sweet N Sassy. This one is called All Wrapped Up and it is very versatile! 

I will be creating a Christmas card in the next couple of days using the same layout, but adding the Christmas sentiments provided in the set and coloring it up in Christmas colors…

For this card though, I stamped the front package, then created a mask to cover it and stamped the stack of packages to “the back”. I water colored it with Inktense pencils then fussy cut it and popped it up on foam. Before adding the image, I splattered some color on the background piece and added the sentiment.

I really like this card! It is fun and perfect for anyone of any age – those aren’t always easy to find in my stash – what about yours??

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you are inspired – Maybe you want to try a little water coloring this week?

Hugs,

Lyn
