Jr. Hatter Twinkle

It's Thursday at Little Miss Muffet Stamps and there is still time to add a project to the Anything Goes Challenge. For my project I've used Jr. Hatter Twinkle rubber stamp.  I created different layers on the card and behind the image layer, I used a Make it Crafty chipboard embellishment frame. 

This is the same image I used when I did the silhouette challenge last week.  As I was coloring it black, I immediately stamped it again so I could color her with colors too.  Since Valentine paper is on my desk, that is where I got the inspiration from.

I used these Copic markers on Jr. Hatter Twinkle:

R11, E04
E00, 21, 23, 27
E49, 47, 44, 43
E71, 74, 77, 79, BV29
T1, 3, 5, 7, 9
BV23, R20, RV11, 32, 34
Y11, YR31, 23, E31
B00, 01, BG10, 11

I have some great news to share today.  First, I've joined the Whimsy Design Team and am excited to get around to using many of the stamps in my stash.  Second, DoveArt Studio stamps are now being manufactured by Whimsy Stamps instead of CC Designs.

Last but not least, today is Day 1 of the February release at Whimsy Stamps!  For my project I've used Maynard by DoveArt Studios. I thought this guy would be perfect for a black and white valentine card... but I couldn't resit adding some red in there too so I colored the Hello sentiment.

You'll spot this guy, plus other DoveArt Studio stamps released in the Whimsy shop.  All February products are available now but over the next few days there will be spotlights and inspiration.

Spring Short Stack

Here's a quick card that I made using the animal segments from Spring Short Stack by Stampendous. I figure since it's the Year of the Dog that I need to color more dog stamps for good luck.  This card was inspired by the Splitcoast Stampers technique "Pop Out Card" by Kelly Jean.

These are the Copic markers I used on this card:
E42, 43, 44, 47
YR30, 24, Y23
BG11, 18, 57
T7, R12, BV23
T1, 3, 5

Below, this is the INSIDE of the card. I added a border around the edge because it was handy and added a little more color to the card.  This was a fun technique - thanks Kelly!

Birthday Memories - Poodles

I've used the Birthday Memories designer series papers from Stampin' Up! to create this project and followed the lovely card layout and idea from the talented Hofkissed.  I also used some Make it Crafty chipboard embellishments for the sentiment and some gems for sparkle. I loved how the spots coordinated with the dog theme and she made a very festive birthday card that I wanted to capture.
