Polka Dot Pals Jamie and Polka Dot Pals Add-on Faces

The challenge at Little Miss Muffet Challenges is CAS (aka Clean and Simple) however, I'm going to be a prime example of how not to follow the challenge rules as this is certainly not CAS.  However, I still wanted to post a project and this is all that I had up my sleeves.  Plus, we might overlook the rules if you use a Little Miss Muffet Stamps too.  ;D


For this project I used Polka Dot Pals Jamie and Polka Dot Pals Add-on Faces rubber stamps from Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  The face I used are the ones without the eyelashes and I used the pre-punched holes to help aline the face onto the stamped girl image.  I practiced a few times on a scratch paper until I was certain I could get it right then used gray to stamp both images.


After the stamping is finished then the coloring part begins - the fun part.  Here is a close up of the face and you can see where I've added highlights and shadows to shape it.  My markers started to go wacky on the darker sides so I had to leave it at this stage.  But I was happy with it so that's always a plus.
 

We hope you have time to join our challenge this week and have a great weekend!  Thanks for dropping by today and have fun creating.

Fancy Sunbonnet Lucky

Little Miss Muffet Stamps is sponsoring Fab 'n Funky Challenges this week!  The theme is "3 Embellishments" (either 3 of one type of embellishment  or 3 different types of embellishment).  I've used three different types of embellishments on my card... resin flowers, lace and pink pearls.   Come on over and join the fun!!



The image I used is Fancy Sunbonnet Lucky by Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  I also doodled around the paper and on the background with a black pen.  If you're familiar with this image you might wonder how "Lucky" it is!  But I've covered the shamrocks with the roses and converted this image from a St. Patrick's Day stamp to an all around greetings image.  Clever right?  Yes I think so and thanks to Melissa for the idea!  :D

Skelekinz Pumpkin

Happy Halloween Eve to everyone out there and whether you celebrate Halloween or not perhaps this cutie with a pumpkin will be right down your favorite spooky alley!  I've used Skelekinz Pumpkin rubber stamp from Little Miss Muffet Stamps on this project and created a page in my trading card journal.  This one has all my favorite embellishments lately including the spiders (from a mini punch), the wood sentiment and a bat charm (that I clipped off the loop).  Scruff up the edges and add some doodles and it's complete!  Thanks for dropping by and I hope you enjoy this bit of inspiration.

Batty Boo

I had some fun shopping for new Halloween paper over the weekend and picked up the Witches Brew Jillibean Soup mini pad and couldn't wait to use it.  The image I used on this project is Batty Boo from Whimsy Stamps (and also available at Little Miss Muffet Stamps) which was colored with Prisimacolor Pencils.  The paper I used was a little too smooth so I was a bit limited on the coloring but even so it didn't turn out too bad.   These little critters are cute, whatever they are, and fun to color.  :D  Hope you like it too and have a wonderful rest of your weekend!

Skelekinz Devil

It's the weekend before Halloween and we're busy decorating the house and having themed parties with our friends.  The kids have really gotten into it this year and so it's made it all that much more fun to create these Halloween cards!  :D  This one uses Skelekinz Devil rubber stamps from Little Miss Muffet Stamps.



I reached into the back of the cabinet for some Halloween papers and spooky eyes to help embellish this card.  Then A few things from around the table such as the ribbon, staples and Hello sentiment... and some spiders from my favorite tiny punches.  Added some doodles and this little devil is ready so greet you in your mailbox!  Thanks for dropping by and have a wonderful spooky weekend!
