Grandpa Fishing

I think this is going to be a project that you're going to love... at least I know I do! The image is a new release at Little Miss Muffet Stamps, Grandpa Fishing, and a fun one to color too.  But the best part about the card is the background.  My daughter was using her new watercolor paints and colored this picture for me.  I then brought out the black pen and defined the image, colored Grandpa Fishing, and then placed him on this card.

I also used a the Say What? die and Mini Alphabet & Numbers die for the sentiment.  Then I used some Make it Crafty dragonflies and there it all is.

Thanks for coming by today and now I'll send you over to the Little Miss Muffet Stamps store to check out the New Releases.  Enjoy some shopping!

There is a new challenge opening up today over at the LMMS challenge blog and the theme is "Many Layers." For my project, I decided to pull out the metal dies and create something with a door.  I used the following supplies available at Little Miss Muffet Stamps:

If you remember last time I had showed what I created with the Birdie packaging and so this one I actually enjoyed coloring Birdie herself and giving her some facial details too.  The colors I picked were grabbed from the paper stack that I was using and then I tossed in some yellow ribbon to help emphasis those colors.  It's too bad that the glue showed through so I'll have to try to use something different next time.

Lastly the Marine Creek Door was used with the small ticket insert and I added parts of the Bird on the Wire as a decal, which was cut from white felt.  Then I also used the door and hinge parts to build up the door a little more.

Hope you enjoy and thanks for stopping at my blog.

Old West Locomotive

I wanted to share another project I made with one of the new DoveArt Designs stamps that was added to the LMMS shop.  This one was perfect for another male's birthday card so I went with black and white coloring and then put in colors with the paper.

There is still one more day to join the blog hop - HERE -
- there are only 8 stops and each project is fantastic!

I've used the Old West Locomotive by DoveArt Designs and the Happy Days Tab Sentiment by Make it Crafty, both available at Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  The paper pack I used was Jack and Jill by Echo Park.

Gone Fishing

CC Designs released new DoveArt Design stamps last week and now I've added them to Little Miss Muffet Stamps this week.  The Little Misses are celebrating with a blog hop, prizes and a weekend sale.  Booyah!  Below you'll find all the hop links but also make sure you stop at the LMMS Blog for all the details on the prizes.  Plus you'll spot the coupon code for 20% off your order!  Can you say savings?!
For my project, I've used Gone Fishing and created a boy's birthday card.  This truck reminded me of one that my grandfather had.  His was a light blue but it was completely rusted - so rusted that the metal had holes in it.  I thought it was fascinating! So in tribute to that, I decided to color this truck blue as sort of a younger version of the truck.

The card I kept simple but I added a little sentiment on the bottom using the Happy Days Tab Sentiment with accompanying chipboard embellishment. Then I doodled on the card and tied it up with some multicolored twine.   Hope you like it and thanks for joining the hop!

Celeste Amberglow Cupcake Party

LMMS is sponsoring In the Pink Challenge today and the theme is FAF or CAS, plus lots of pink.  And what do those mean?  That's 'Fussy and Fancy' or 'Clean and Simple' in case you were wondering like I was.  :)   They also want to see more pink on your project that any other color, except neutral colors, naturally.

I decided to join along and for my project I used Celeste Amberglow Cupcake Party rubber stamp from Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  My pinks are shown up in the paper and embellishments and I even colored the star and flowers pink for extra measures.  The dragonflies are chipboard embellishments from Make it Crafty.  I had fun coloring Celeste Amberglow and gave her lots of vibrant colors to celebrate with.

I hope you like it and thank you for dropping by the blog today!  Have a fantastic week!
