Fancy Sunbonnet Christmas

We're taking a little break this holiday season with our challenges but that doesn't mean we're not crafting!  LOL   Instead today we're sharing more inspiration from Little Miss Muffet Stamps and we're allowed to create anything we want.  This is Inspiration Week 2 and sometimes they're the best as our creativity can run wild.  Of course, I went with something in season and created this holiday card...

The image I used is Fancy Sunbonnet Christmas and a coordinating sentiment stamp from one of the other Sunbonnet stamps; both from Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  These Sunbonnet images bring back warm memories of my childhood and watching my Mom quilting so they're some of my favorites! 

Thanks for coming by and I hope everyone enjoys the loot they received this year!  You can pick up this rubber stamp in the LMMS Store and don't forget to visit the LMMS Store Blog for more fabulous inspiration from the design team - the projects are worth the time!  :D

Ivy Swings

Happy Holidays!  I don't have a holiday project to share as I've broken out of the mold and created a spring card this week.  I've used the Ivy Swing rubber stamp from Make it Crafty and decided to pair it with a sentiment instead of a character.  I suppose this would be the perfect graduation or farewell card since the swing is empty, but in all honesty, I chose the sentiment (out of what I had available) solely for it's shape.  It's these kinds of decisions that later on make "deep" and "thought provoking" cards!  LOL 

One thing I wanted to do was to make image vibrant with color and to have all the elements stand out.  So I used many different colors and even grabbed a few unexpected ones to mix in - such as the pinks in the sky and the yellows on the red birds.  Once I was finished I mounted it on a card pulling out the purples and it's ready for a new home!  Thanks for coming by and I hope this inspires you to make your day crafty.  :D
