Agent Cupcake Aiming

Welcome to the second day of previews for Little Miss Muffet Stamps and today I'm showing off the newest Agent in the Operation TREEHOUSE series... Agent Popcorn Aiming! Be sure to head on over to the store to see the Agent Popcorn in her cute pose too. ;D


Phew... this project took the longest time to finish as I had one mental block after another. I had colored Agent Popcorn a couple days ago then printed out a background to work on. However, today I made the mistake of changing out the kids summer clothes for winter ones before crafting and now I wish I had done it the other way around! LOL Now as I "rest" and enter in my details, I'm terribly distracted by a cute little movie called The Gruffalo. It's darling and I'll have to get the book from the library tomorrow.


Anyway, back to my project. He he he. This is Agent Popcorn taking aim against the boys next door. But don't let those jumbo popcorn pellets fool you as I'm sure they're filled with something gooey... maybe even something smelly too.


The background is Pebblestone Path from Make it Crafty. I had merged the images and printed them out together then realized I wanted to use dimensional for her so I colored the background ignoring the character. This gave me the opportunity to work on the grass and sky without worrying about lines. Afterward I colored the character black in case you could see between the layers. Once the project was finished I used dimensional foam and "popped" that girl right on. Enjoy!


I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:

Jen's Digi Stamps Challenge - fight like a girl
My Mum's Craft Shop Challenge - food and drink
Shelly's Images TTT Challenge - anything goes

Mitten & Button

It's new release week at Little Miss Muffet Stamps and there are four adorable images going out! Today I'm using a couple Animal Friends, Mitten and Button, to create a warm holiday scene next to the Hearth & Home fireplace from Make it Crafty.


These two images were inspired by a few animal friends of my own - our little Ginger was a recent addition to our home but there was already an image of that name so I named her after my childhood pet dog, Mitten. We couldn't have someone getting a puppy for Christmas without a kitten in the mix too so I drew Button after another past companion.


The Hearth & Home fireplace is from Make it Crafty and gave me another opportunity to color a fire. I wanted to focus on the inside of the fire pit as I wasn't sure how to color it so this time I looked up images in Google and found a good image to reference. It's not exact but still turned out nicely.


I colored each of the images large so creating the journal page would be quick and easy. I covered the back with decorative paper, wrapped a large ribbon around and positioned my images. Then added some MiC chippies, couple of pearls and lastly a few snowflake buttons - finished! :D


I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:

Crafting When We Can Challenge - Christmas
I Did it Creations Challenge #77 - animals
KB Cute Monday Challenge #31 - anything goes

Mystic

Here's a project that I created for the Whimsy Magazine online that was published back in August and if you head on over there you can see the newest release published just last week! The August issue has all the supplies extra supplies listed for this project but the main stamps are Mystic and Birthday Letter Seals from Whimsy Stamps and the Tropical Waterfall from Make it Crafty.


This was actually the first project that I made in my second journal and it wasn't too long ago that I finished my last page... so I guess to answer that question it takes me two months to fill a large journal. ;D


Most unicorns I've seen have been colored white so I wanted to give a try at a black one - but to keep the details showing I colored the tail a fiery orange. To balance out the project I also elements of the waterfall in darker colors too. Oh... and the page behind it is ripped out of a Winnie the Pooh book that I have on hand just for this occasion. ;D Hope you enjoyed the project as much as I enjoyed making it.

Kreepy Kitty

Here's another project for the Make it Colourful monthly challenge this month ... to create a Spooky Night Sky! Head on over there to check out my tutorial and hopefully get your creative juices flowing. ;D For this page, I used Kreepy Kitty from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.


I saved all the coloring tips for the tutorial at Make it Colourful so I'll just ramble on about the embellishments and journal page that I created. The best part is the Mini Dragonfly chippies from Make it Crafty - I colored them with Copic markers to give them a greenish look.


The mean looking pumpkin is actually a felt sticker from Martha Stewart and thought it would give a fun whimsical look to counter the creepy feel. Here's a close up of the colored image and be sure to head on over to the Make it Colourful site to join in on the challenge.... I super-duper-double-dog-dare you!!


I'd like to enter this into one challenge, the Kraftin' Kimmie's 100th Challenge! The theme was to use a favorite KK Stamp - it was hard to choose just one but for the occasion and current atmosphere I chose to go with a Halloween image.

Update: I was a lucky winner at Kraftin' Kimmie Challenges for this project!
