Forest Friends Trevor

It's another Super Saturday event at Little Miss Muffet Stamps where we feature the freebie for the day plus the discounted spotlighted rubber stamp for the week!  You'll have to visit the LMMS Store Blog to spot inspiration using the freebie as I've created a projecting us the spotlighted image instead.  :D  And what is the spotlighted image??

The image I used is Forest Friends Trevor Tortise from Little Miss Muffet Stamps and his friend the dragonfly.  I also used the bow-tie Forest Friends Foster Fawn and thought it was a great match to go along with his hat! from I went with a simple layout and double matted the center image and also did some stitching around the blue decorative paper. 

You can find this image and the free in the LMMS Store and you'll want to make sure to visit the LMMS Store Blog for inspiration from the design team - they've done an amazing job!!

Sunbonnet Strawberry Big

We have new rubber stamps at Little Miss Muffet Stamps and today we're featuring strawberries and sunbonnets!  There are four new Sunbonnet images from Bugaboo now available in deep red rubber - whoo hoo!  And today I have an extra special surprise to share since my daughter also made a card using one of these cute images.  :D  Check out our creations...

This is my project and I've used Sunbonnet Strawberry Big rubber stamp from Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  I thought I'd do something different and bring back some black and white; however, these images are adorable in pinks or reds!!  I've already colored the others up but this was the only one I have on a card.  :P  The flowers have been in my stash for a long time but I've found that a touch of yellow puff paint brings them back to life!

Below is the card that my daughter, Cassandra, created.  She used Sunbonnet Strawberry Jam to color.  I've increased my marker stash and bought a bunch of Marvy La Plume alcohol markers so my kids have gotten excited about them.  We spent this week learning how to color with them and this was her first image she colored. 

We colored the same image together and she's done a wonderful job!  She did a second one right after this and I could tell she was thinking about it.  At the moment I didn't bother with shading or shapes, so we just worked on choosing colors.  she was really worried about the grass and I had to show her two time before she'd even attempt to try it.  I think it was because the rest of the image was already colored, and like most of us, we don't want to have to start over again.  LOL

You can find these stamps now in the LMMS Store and lots of more inspiration over in the LMMS Store Blog where the design team has done an incredibly yummy job with these!  My local farmer's market is filled with watermelons, grapes and cherries but I'm sure they'll have some strawberries because I have a hankering for homemade strawberry jam! Yummmm!

Forest Friends Stuart

Hi! For lack of a better introductions, I'll let the card give the opening line.  :D  Another weekend is gone and we're getting closer to the end of the year - it always goes by so fast these days!  I have to get the kids signed up for school and the hobby stores already have shelves lined with holiday stuff.  There's just no reprieve from the endless to-do list.  Ever feel that way sometimes?  I guess that's why we have hobbies! :D

The image on this card is Stuart the squirrel in the Forest Friends Stuart & Rosa stamp set from Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  There are five stamps all together in the set and I've used a mushroom from one of the other Friend Friends set to complete this scene. I've been able to make a card with each of the Forest Friends so I'll be excited to share those with you along the way.

I love being able to use rubber stamps and these images were stamped and masked to create this scene.  All of the Forest Friends can be found in the LMMS Store now and they're especially easy to find when you're using the Search tool.  I still have a lot to do in the store to get everything converted over but it's finally all coming together.  Phew... this was a bigger task than I originally thought.
