Celeste Amberglow Sweet Teacher

Welcome back!  I have a left over project that I never showed here from Valentine's day.  This project uses Celeste Amberglow Sweet Teacher from Little Miss Muffet Stamps and was actually a teacher gift. 

There is a new challenge opening up at LMMS Challenges.  It's anything goes so head on over and link up your favorite project this week.  You could even have a chance at being part of the Customer Appreciation Day and receive a free image to work with.  You know you want to!


This card doesn't open the traditional way and from the looks just has a front and back.  This is the back which shows the lyrics to the song that it's going to play.



The bottom of the card opens up and rivals two chocolate characters that dance and sing.  This internal part of the card was taken from a Hallmark card.  I dissected it then rebuilt my card around it.  This revamped card is smaller than the original one and is about 6x6.25 inches. 



Check I out, here's the card in action ... my daughter introduces it and then shows the dancing and signing characters inside.  Enjoy!

Ladybug Garden

For this project I've used Ladybug Garden rubber stamp from Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  I actually found the image half colored in a stack of papers long forgotten.  It was water damaged and warped and I wasn't sure if I should toss it out or not.  But I decided to see if I could salvage it and chose a light color palate so I didn't have to do a lot of blending. 

There is a new Anything Goes Challenge and New Releases from Little Miss Muffet Stamps today.  Come check it out!

Graduate

Here's yet another bookmark that we've stuffed into a red envelope for someone in the family.  Even though they are all similar, I've tried to make them a little different.  This one uses Graduate from Sister Stamps.  While coloring this one, my daughter learned about the graduation ceremonies and why someone is given a lei, or several of them.  She says she wants to move to Hawaii now when she graduates but I promised her this is something we can do even in Texas. She excited about the prospect of receiving so many that it covers her face.  LOL

Katsura

Here's another bookmark for our red envelopes.  I'm sending out a few of them late and I'm going to try to get at least one more done but no promises.  This one uses Katsura from Sister Stamp and I used a white gel pen to on the outfit to give it a pattern.

Year of the Rooster

Yep, another one using Year of the Rooster from Sister Stamps.  This little critter is easy to use and fun because of the many ways that it can be colored.  I got the inspiration here.  I already have two more picked out but I think I'm going to move on to some of my other Sister Stamps and share the ink.  Plus there is another one made by Lydia that I wanted to share too.  Her's has been my favorite.  :D  Happy year of the rooster!



Lydia's awesome project...

Year of the Rooster

Here's another wish I created to celebrate the Spring Festival and Chinese New Year using Year of the Rooster by Sister Stamp.  My girls also used the same stamp and came up with a few on their own.  I think these will be great bookmarks to use.

On my project, the two lanterns where some doodles I quickly drew and colored.  The letters are cut from the Cutters Mini Alpha & Numbers Die from CC Designs.


 Here's one of Cassandra's ...

Here's one of Lydia's ... 

Here's one two of Amelia's ...

Felted Mice

There are so many adorable felted mice out there.  My Mom showed me a pin cushion Felted Mouse from Suzie of Crowsnest Pass from TDIPT Mercantile and asked if I could make a couple for her.  This isn't exactly but they do take after hers.  The mouse is needle felted and the strawberries are sewn with sheet felt.  They are sitting on vintage wooden spool that are very very old.  I have forgot exactly but I was impressed how old they were.

Turtle Stackers

These little turtle were so fun to color as a rainbow.  I only wish they were bigger but they're still on my list to color again.  They are Turtle Stackers from Art Impressions and I have my eye on the penguins next but time will tell.  The sentiment is the Hello Word Chipboard from Make it Crafty and was colored with Copic marker then sparkled with Art Anthology Sorbet dimensional paint.

Magical Dragons

Sometimes I buy cute stamps just to entice my daughters to color along with me.  I think this one was proper bate so I hope to see some activity on that side of the desk.  This is Magical Dragons from My Favorite Things and I used the Bright Side of Life Chipboard sentiment from Make it Crafty.

Felt Sewing

Here are a few felt animals/critters that I've made over the past few weeks.  The dog and elephant are patterns from the Pipsqueaks Itsy-Bitsy Felt Creations book.  I've done the elephant before so it was much easier to second time.  The dog was altered to have longer ears and to be larger than the pattern.  Then the inside of the ears was given a pattern fabric lining.  I don't remember where the snail came from but was an adaptation of one I saw on Pinterest.

Bee Henry

Isn't this the cutest little guy?!  I thought with all the stripes on the onesie that he could be colored in all sorts of ways.  So this time I went with a valentines theme.  This is Bee Henry from CC Designs stamps and also using their Smoochie papers for the background.

Magical Dragons

Here's another project I made with Magical Dragon by My Favorite Things.  I also used a variation of the Rainbow Clouds Chipboard from Make it Crafty to decorate the rest of the card.  The white was painted with Gesso and the colored rainbow was colored with Liquid Pearls.

Animorphia Postcard Owl

I've been wanting to color some images by Kerby Rosanes and found a small booklet of Animorphia Postcards that were just the right size. I started out with the owl since I didn't have to think about the colors too much.  My daughter said she'd finish the little doodles on the back if she could mail it so I thought that was a good deal.
