Fancy Sunbonnet Snowball & Park Glen Door Metal Die

It's the 100th Challenge at Little Miss Muffet Challenges and we're having an Anything Goes challenge that runs all month long!  Not only that, there are three chances to win!  So come on over and show us what you're making this season.  :D



For my project I've used Fancy Sunbonnet Snowball rubber stamps and Park Glen Door Metal Die, both from Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  The markers I used are both the Marvy LePlume plus Copics. I also doodled around the edges too using one of Faye's doodle ideas.



The charms are actually necklace charms and I clipped off the ring part so they made nice snowflakes.  Then the door handle is a photo anchor thing with a gemstone brad in the center.  The screen mesh behind it is also something you can find at LMMS and can be used on both style door diecuts.  Lastly the bow and friends charm and a few things in the back of my stash that I thought would be fun to use.  That's my project - thanks for dropping by!

Hazel

Some projects just take longer than others and this one is one of those.  I started this long before Halloween but decided I needed to finished it even though Halloween was over. I have another project that I started for Thanksgiving too but it will be late as well.  LOL  Anyway, this is Hazel from Wee Stamps in rubber from Whimsy Stamps and also available at Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  I went with a light gray color to stamp her in then used greens and blacks to color her.  For a splash of color I used the orange as a backdrop.  Finally I did some doodles as a border and made it into a card.   Hope you like her even though she's a tad out of season... buy hay... I guess witches need to live through the seasons too.  ;D

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.
