Rainboot Bugs

There is a challenge opening up at Little Miss Muffet Challenges and you're going to love this one!  LOL  The theme is "All You Need is Love" and we'd like to see your creations.  And this is one that I actually participated in.  :D  

The image I used is Rainboot Bugs in rubber available at Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  The papers were scraps (I love cleaning up the desk) and the rest is history.   Hope you like it and come on over to play in the challenge!

A Cupcake Pin Cushion

I created a cupcake pin cushion at my Mom's house.  The base and Styrofoam core are leftover packaging for some hair bands.  I wrapped the core with cotton batting and covered it with fabric.  Then I glued it into the cupcake holder and added a bow.  It's been a fun addition to the craft room and now I won't loose my needle anymore!  :D

Mermaid and Mason Jar

I was able to take some time out today and color up an image that has been on my wish list for quiet some time.  :)  Why I put these two together?  I don't know other than I wanted to color this mermaid and this jar so why not together.  LOL  These images are Sweet November images from CC Designs and were colored with Prismacolor pencils on Balsa wood. 

This was a good challenge for me to try coloring metal and glass.  She is swimming in distilled water - that is instead of murky water although there is some color reflection that I'm not sure if it looks like murky water or just reflection on the glass?  Then after it was completely finished, I went back in a smeared straight lines to help it look like she was inside the glass instead of out in front.  That was a scary moment but I'm breathing ok now.  :)

Thanks for dropping by and have a great weekend!

Birthday Daisies

Gorgeous Flowers Blooming just for you!  Happy New Year! We hope you have had a wonderful time over the holidays and wish you an amazing 2015!

You should have arrived here from the incredible ZOE!
But if you get lost you can start at the beginning HERE.
Today we are excited to be sharing a new release of beautifully illustrated flower stamps from Make it Crafty. They are intricate and delicate with lots of detail and are the perfect choice for many occasions. These gorgeous new flowers are available in both digital and rubber and the rubber stamps also come with a hand written sentiment, which of course you could use between all the different flowers.

For my project I've used Birthday Daisies and created a page in my trading card journal.  I first started with distress inks and tried to go for a watercolor look.  However since my watercolor skills are about as good as my karate skills it went about as well as I expected.  So I dragged out my Prismacolor pencils to save the image.

Your next stop on the hop is the talented KAY!  
But if you get lost you can find the complete hop at Make it Crafty HERE.

Good luck!

Elisabeth Louise Hatter

Happy New Year everyone!  While I'm off enjoying the wilderness, I can imagine the hustle and bustle back home.  But even though I'm missing out on the parties, I thought I could still schedule a post to go live in my absence.  This card was created using Elisabeth Louise Hatter and I love how the colors turned out. The paper was a bunch of scraps that magically worked well together.  :)

The new challenge at LMM Challenges is Something Blue - you can do weddings, winter, or whatever just as long as it's blue!  Hope you see your creations.  :)

Thanks for dropping by and have a wonderful week!

Polka Dot Pals Neva

Little Miss Muffet Stamps is sponsoring Barne Mix back in November as they shared various articles.  The theme was "Winter, Snow and Christmas" and I created this card using one of my favorite Christmas stamps.  :D  This was colored using Marvy Le Plume markers and I've listed the colors below.  Then the card was put together to resemble a large package.

The stamp I used on this project is Polka Dot Pals Neva from Little Miss Muffet Stamps. This is one of the cards I colored at Scrappin Goodtime when I was teaching a class.  Here are the colors I used:

Yellow: Y627, 624
Brown: E859, 858, 855, 853
Greens: YG649, 647, 645, 642
Skin: OR827, E853, OR820
White: AG877, 875, 873
Red: PV778, R818, R815
Extra: V742, 747

Thanks for coming by today and I hope you've caught up on all your holiday cards this year!
