Ice Cream Cart

I'm so excited to announce the latest release from Little Miss Muffet Stamps and this one you are bound to love!!  It's the Valentines Release!!  Of course, pink and brown are my favorite colors so making cards for Valentines is extra double fun and this card is no exceptions.  AND ice cream?  I love ice cream!  Make sure you head on over to LMMS too and check out all the New Releases!

For this project I used the Swings 'n Slides Ice Cream Cart plus the Swings 'n Slides Sweet Sentiments rubber stamps from Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  Then I colored it with my favorite colors and added some mint green to color the Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream with.  Yummy! 

Then I started putting together the card - notice the sewing?  Yep, I still have my sewing machine out on the table!  :D  Then I added some embellishments from friends such as the green pearls from Ruby and the flower from Arabella - thanks sweeties!  Next I wanted to use the sentiment from this release so I stamped it on kraft cardstock and this is what I came up with ...

The heart was stamped on white paper then cut and popped up on the sentiment tag which added a fun element.  As for the sentiment... well, I have to save these kinds of cards for really special people because I dooo love my ice cream!  LOL   So it makes for a perfect Valentine card from me. 

I hope you've enjoyed this card and make sure you check out all the other new rubber stamps at Little Miss Muffet Stamps - you'll *love them more than ice cream!*  :D

Sweet Devilina

Who says cupid has to be a cute little chubby babe?  Not me, that's for sure!  Of course this was originally going to be a Halloween card but after making some Valentine cards, with all the red and pink paper scatter around, I decided a Valentine card would be awesome... plus it totally fits my style to "Void the Warranty!"  LOL

The image is Sweet Devilina from Make it Crafty and one that I've had colored for ages!  She finally gets to be showcased on this Valentine card and I included a few chippie embellishments on the corner too.  The sentiments are rub-ons from Stampin' Up and I think the papers are from K&Company (I think).

Do you see the stitching on the card?  I'm totally in love with my sewing machine again and have managed to leave it out for a whole week and have sewn on many cards!  I think I might have to re-organize my room to find a permanent spot ... anyone want to come over and help?  :D

Fairy Bear

Get ready... It's going to be crazy here at ForgottenScraps as I switch from one season to the next and from one holiday to the next!  I just finished four Halloween cards this past week and I still have a couple Christmas cards that are saved as drafts to share... but it continues on!  Valentine cards are coming out hot off my desk and I'm starting a summer card this week with a beach and everything.  LOL  But I'm sure you'll love it all.  ;D

You might recognize the image on this card as I had shared it about a month ago.   And in keeping up with my New Year resolution, I've made a card with it but also had to color up a  new image to go with it.  These are Fairy Bear and Gingerbread Candy House from Make it Crafty. 

I used the same type of texture on the teddy bear as I did from the gingerbread house.  Then I thought it would be perfect on the sweater too but instead of dots I used short dash marks.  I thought it would be just as easy but I had a hard time remembering to make the dashes parallel and also "with" the grain of the fabric.  Luckily I started with the lighter colors and went darker so my mistakes were hidden.  :D

Oh... and I'm excited to say I now only have four Make it Crafty images to do something with and then I'll be all caught up!!  After that I can count the multitude of Little Miss Muffet images I have colored and will start working on making projects for those too.  I might fall off my chair when I count, however, so I'll save it for a weekend - it will give me plenty of opportunity to recoup.  LOL
