SS Ferris Wheel

It's Super Saturday at Little Miss Muffet Stamps and today we have a freebie available in the store as well as the spotlighted rubber stamps at a discount for the week!  This week, the spotlight is on both of the Swings 'n Slides Carnival Sentiments which are perfect for the character and rides in this theme.  I always think they make great birthday cards but there are also some that would work for other themes too like parties, summer, holidays and patriotic projects too!


The image on this project is Swings 'n Slides Ferris Wheel and a matching Swings 'n Slides Carnival Sentiments both from Little Miss Muffet Stamps and drawn by Pollycraft.  I love how the rides, sentiments and characters work well together and there are several combinations.



When I started, I knew I wanted to use this shaker element so I designed the card around how that would work.  I initially had the shaker element on the inside of the card with a hold cut in the font but had some problems with my placement so I ended up with the easier route and placed it on the front of the card.  Then I stamped the Ferris Wheel image twice, once for the backing and once for the overlayer - this way I could hide the edges of the shaker part. 


I filled the shaker with Dew Drops, microbeads and a party charm.  The stamps were stamped in brown instead of black which I think matched the papers better.  I think the black would have stood out too much for the subtle look I was going for.

The rubber stamps can be found in the LMMS Store and don't miss out on the discount this week on the sentiments too!  Also head on over to the LMMS Store Blog to see what the freebie is for today and inspiration using all of these stamps today.
