Pergamano Fairie

I wanted to quickly share a project I created a while ago which I thought would be a great way to bring in Spring and March - since March always reminds me of green and flowers!  Nature is starting to turn green around my area and it's time for me to star thinking about the flower beds and mowing the lawn again.  I think this year I'll plant some summer bulbs including some Bleeding Hearts which apparently is a tradition to have in the yard for few generations.  ;D


The image I used on my project is a fairie by Pergamano but I don't know the name of her nor the name of the stamp set it came in.  I have about six or eight of these cuties and have colored around half of them.  (You can click HERE to see the rest of them where I might have a stamp name listed .)


Lastly, a little bit about the background and grass.  Both are pretty easy and can be done on any project!  The grass was created by using various colors of green and making sure I used dark greens too.  Then the pink and yellow flowers were added just by grouping dots together.  After that I went back in with a white gel pen and added a few more dots for a whimsical feel.  The background of the sky was created with light blue dots.  Then I did the reverse effect from the white dots in the grass by adding yellow dots in the sky.


The project was assembled rather quickly using a generic layout that I've seen before.  I had fun adding felt clouds and ribbon tags.  Then just for kicks and grins, I added the movie reel ribbon - and also partly because my daughter keeps getting it down from the shelf and playing with it.  ;D

Puppy Additions

I'm excited to announce there is a rubber stamp release at Little Miss Muffet Stamps today!!  These images are perfect for spring plus a few other occasions too - including St. Patrick's Day, Easter and everything else Spring!  I'm still stuck on Valentines day and but I picked out one of the most versatile stamps and started playing. This is what I came up with... LOVE!


The stamps I used are called Puppy Additions from Little Miss Muffet Stamps and both are included in the rubber stamp.  I sized these two so they could go well with other characters and added on to any project - however, they're also great to use instead of embellishments - or both!


The LOVE letters are actually stickers I had found in the $1.00 section of the scrapbook store and decided they would be perfect and easy to make a card with.  Plus there just enough room to add the Puppy Additions frolicking around.  :D  Then I also added a zipper ribbon and sewed it to the card.


My daughter also feel in love with these puppies and had to color her own.  So here are the same two pups but this time all dressed up fancy for a walk in the park!  And as you can see, she was very careful to give each dog their own ball to play with - yea, none of this "sharing" business that she has to deal with at home!  LOL


Thanks for coming by and I hope you've enjoyed these puppies.  Make sure you get over to the LMM Challenge Blog to see the other new releases this week as I'm sure you're going to adore them too!  Have a great weekend!
