Wisteria Sprite

I hope, for those in the northern hemisphere, that you're all enjoying your summer.  And for those in the southern hemisphere, I hope you're winter hasn't gotten too cold yet.  Birrr!  I'm out of town enjoying the countryside as we travel across the states.  I'm sure by now I'm hearing the nagging "are we home yet?" comment from the kids.  LOL  Anyway, I wanted to share some projects but I only had one to schedule. 

For this project, I've used Mitzi Sato-Wiuff's Wisteria Sprite from Sweet Pea Stamps and colored her on watercolor paper.  Her hair was was done with Polychromos pencils and the rest was done with Copic markers.  The pencils weren't working very well for me and cramped up my hands.  So I switched to finish the rest with markers and even tried to get the background to look like watercolors.  Not sure if this was the end goal I was hoping for but I think it turned out none the less.

The tag stamp and chipboard tag accompaniment are from Make it Crafty and is always a great embellishment.  It's the Happy Days Tab Sentiment.

Hope you enjoy this project and have a great week!

Fearless Fairy Tales Snow White

I put up a vote on Facebook for your favorite Fearless Fairy Tale character and decided to create a card using one of them.  Now, normally I'd go for the favorite, which was Little Mermaid, so I'll probably be creating another one using her.  :D  For for this card, I used Fearless Fairy Tales Snow White from Little Miss Muffet Stamps.

I went with an old style and vintage look, which I hope it worked out.  These are some papers I haven't used in a while so it was refreshing to get those colors out again.  Thanks for dropping by and have a great, awesome day.  :D

Sunbonnet Fire Truck

I have a boy card to share today and enjoyed putting this one together.  I wanted to use the Say What? and Mini Alpha & Numbers diecuts from CC Designs so I picked a smaller image to use.  This one worked well and I could put it more on the side of the card. 

I used Sunbonnet Fire Truck from Little Miss Muffet Stamps and colored him in bright reds and oranges.  I didn't have any papers that matched but I think I found a good compromise with these subtle colors.  Lastly I grabbed some of my red/black/white twine and wrapped it up for a finished look.  Hope you like it and enjoy!

For those who want a good laugh... 
this was shared with me the other day and I about busted a gut!

Spencer's Ship

Here's a project that turned out better than I thought - that's how the color orange usually is for me.  I hardly like to use it but when I do, more often than not, I like how it turns out.  I should be using it more often!  LOL 

For this project I used Spencer's Ship from Little Miss Muffet Stamp and created a boy's birthday card.  The papers are Jack by Echo Park, the chipboard embellishments are from Make it Crafty, and the gems are Twinkle Goosebumps (which I've always drooled over when Faye used them on her projects so I had to buy me a stash.)   The sentiment stamp was included with a rubber stamp order but I had forgotten which company - either way, thank you for who did that!

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.
