Cool Chester

Ready for another Super Saturday over at Little Miss Muffet Stamps?  There is a freebie over to check out and I'm going to show off the spotlighted image which is on sale this week.  This is Cool Chester rubber stamp comes with the sunglasses accessory and was such a fun card to color.  The ice cream cone, especially can be of any flavor... yum!

This rubber stamp is Cool Chester drawn by Pollycraft and available at Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  It comes in a set of two with the sunglasses which I've stamped twice to add as an embellishment.  I wanted to make a boy card so I went with a bold red and a subtle blue mixed in with a little yellow.  I had a little bit of trouble with the browns I was coloring with but maybe I can pass it off as a fur texture?!  LOL

Make sure to visit the LMMS Store Blog for other inspiration using this image as well as projects that use the freebie for today.  Then you can find both of them in the LMMS Store!  Ciao!

Swings 'n Slides Little Sprout

Opsidaisies!  I just scheduled the wrong post for today - not that this post was on time, so I wasn't worried about that.  No worries, that's life and for those who saw what wasn't suppose to be posted, you got a little sneak peek at an upcoming challenge.  (o.0)  Lucky you!  SO what was suppose to be posted?  That would be this card and one of the New Releases at Little Miss Muffet Stamps today!  There are four new summer digis that are now available and you can see inspiration for them all at the LMMS blog.

The image I used is Swings 'n Slides Little Sprout drawn by Pollycraft and available in digital form in the Little Miss Muffet Store.  I honestly couldn't decide which of the four images I wanted to color but when I stumbled across a small flower punch, I knew I wanted to pick this one.

All the other accessories and papers were grabbed at random - it's amazing what you can find when you reorganize your stash!  Now the task will be to *remember* where all the new spots.  LOL

Halloween House

Is it too early to work on Halloween projects?  No! That's the wonderful thing about the crafting world is the holidays can last all year long and you can create in any season you want.  :D  After all, in order go stock up on holiday cards, I have to work on them throughout the year, so why not Halloween projects too?!  He he he

This is a project I created using the Haunted House stamp from Make it Crafty which comes in digital and in rubber form.  I wanted to keep the card simple so I enlarged the image as big as possible then spend my time working on the details of the image.  The tombstones where colored with Copic Warm Gray colors then YG91 and YG93 were used to add moss to the stones.  The tried my hand at metals too so you'll see some silver (done with Copic Cool grays) and tarnished copper (done with E90's and a touch of E07, E15 and E13 for the aged areas.)

Every time I color a house, I'm always tempted to "leave all the lights on" and color all the windows in a yellow glow.  This is because I remember my Mom likes the Thomas Kincaid paintings and he always has the lights on.  She says it's so cozy and inviting.  :D  So do you think it worked for this house?
