Celeste Amberglow Sweet Teacher

Welcome back!  I have a left over project that I never showed here from Valentine's day.  This project uses Celeste Amberglow Sweet Teacher from Little Miss Muffet Stamps and was actually a teacher gift. 

There is a new challenge opening up at LMMS Challenges.  It's anything goes so head on over and link up your favorite project this week.  You could even have a chance at being part of the Customer Appreciation Day and receive a free image to work with.  You know you want to!


This card doesn't open the traditional way and from the looks just has a front and back.  This is the back which shows the lyrics to the song that it's going to play.



The bottom of the card opens up and rivals two chocolate characters that dance and sing.  This internal part of the card was taken from a Hallmark card.  I dissected it then rebuilt my card around it.  This revamped card is smaller than the original one and is about 6x6.25 inches. 



Check I out, here's the card in action ... my daughter introduces it and then shows the dancing and signing characters inside.  Enjoy!

Ladybug Garden

For this project I've used Ladybug Garden rubber stamp from Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  I actually found the image half colored in a stack of papers long forgotten.  It was water damaged and warped and I wasn't sure if I should toss it out or not.  But I decided to see if I could salvage it and chose a light color palate so I didn't have to do a lot of blending. 

There is a new Anything Goes Challenge and New Releases from Little Miss Muffet Stamps today.  Come check it out!

Graduate

Here's yet another bookmark that we've stuffed into a red envelope for someone in the family.  Even though they are all similar, I've tried to make them a little different.  This one uses Graduate from Sister Stamps.  While coloring this one, my daughter learned about the graduation ceremonies and why someone is given a lei, or several of them.  She says she wants to move to Hawaii now when she graduates but I promised her this is something we can do even in Texas. She excited about the prospect of receiving so many that it covers her face.  LOL

Katsura

Here's another bookmark for our red envelopes.  I'm sending out a few of them late and I'm going to try to get at least one more done but no promises.  This one uses Katsura from Sister Stamp and I used a white gel pen to on the outfit to give it a pattern.

Year of the Rooster

Yep, another one using Year of the Rooster from Sister Stamps.  This little critter is easy to use and fun because of the many ways that it can be colored.  I got the inspiration here.  I already have two more picked out but I think I'm going to move on to some of my other Sister Stamps and share the ink.  Plus there is another one made by Lydia that I wanted to share too.  Her's has been my favorite.  :D  Happy year of the rooster!



Lydia's awesome project...

Year of the Rooster

Here's another wish I created to celebrate the Spring Festival and Chinese New Year using Year of the Rooster by Sister Stamp.  My girls also used the same stamp and came up with a few on their own.  I think these will be great bookmarks to use.

On my project, the two lanterns where some doodles I quickly drew and colored.  The letters are cut from the Cutters Mini Alpha & Numbers Die from CC Designs.
