I’ve been waiting to use the Slip ‘n Slide Die Set from Whimsy – er, rather, it’s been waiting for me patiently sitting on my desk. Well, I finally got around to using it and it’s been so much fun. I used the large circle and combined it with the new GingerSnaps! clear stamp. It’s been ages since I’ve created a motion card so I had a few mistakes here and there that needed to be fixed. The biggest one was adding weight to the spinner so it would spin on it’s own… in this case I used a dime.

Here are the Copic Markers I used on it:
C3, R13, E04
E42, 43, 23, 27, 57
YG01, 25, 67
Lastly, I colored and used the Wishes Word Chipboard from Make it Crafty.

Farmhouse Shiplap Background

For my project I used and colored the Farmhouse Shiplap Background from Whimsy Stamps. I wanted to go for a re-purposed look so I colored the planks different shades of gray, brown and even one or two of them blue. I also added seams with nails.  I thought the background was good enough for a card so I skipped coloring a character to put on top of it.  I simply added a few odds and ends to create this fun maze card.

Here are the Copic markers I used:
W2, 3, 4, 6
E00, 31, 35, 43
E42, 43, 44
B91, W6, 4, 3
T4, 3, 1
C8, 7, 3
0.2 Multiliner and white gel pen

Animal Cracker Circus Monkey

I want to share a card that I used a wiggling Wobble on. This on uses Imaginisce’s Animal Cracker Circus Monkey and I think the sentiment is from Stamping Up but if it is I haven’t an idea on the stamp set it came from.

The Wobble was used for the monkey but instead of fussy cutting around the edges I used the shape die and made it all Wobble.  It’s still just as fun!!

Animal Cracker Circus

I just wanted to share a quick project I did yesterday.  And also to say – don’t forget to check out the bargain bins at your craft store because sometimes a dollar stamp is just perfect for a little fun birthday card!  Here I’ve used one of the Animal Cracker Circus by Imaginisce to create a little girl’s birthday card and for some added fun I’ve added a Wobble!  I’ve also used the Marvy Le Plume alcohol markers.  Check it out…

Wobble spring in action…

It was only *after* I had finished my projects did I remember that I have a coordinating Circus stamp to go along with these.  Shucks!  Well, maybe next time I’ll remember.  LOL

Hook a Duck

I have a couple carnival themed projects to show off this week because you don’t wan to miss out on the sale and they’re so much fun to color!!  The sale this week is at Little Miss Muffet Stamps and you can find all the Swings ‘n Slides carnival sentiments and background at a huge discount – this is a one time deal and is for a limited time.  So don’t dawdle and jump on over to the LMMS Store to grab yours today!!

The images on this project are Swings ‘n Slides Hook a Duck and also the Swings ‘n Slides Carnival Sentiments (which also includes the little banner you see on the bottom right) from Little Miss Muffet Stamps and drawn by Pollycraft.  The sentiment I used for this one says “hooked on you” and I stamped it on a ticket stub then colored it to match the rest.

For this card, since Hook a Duck was a carnival game, I thought it would be fitting to add the little round maze game too!  I punched a hole in the top of the card so the maze could be on the inside.  Then I used the punched out circle for the backing in the maze.  The maze comes with two steel balls and I think that is in case you loose one, however, I always like to keep them both in which makes the game a bit harder.  He he he

One of the best parts about these images is that I can use bold and bright colors!  These are colors I’d normally stay away from but when I find the right image they become a lot of fun to use.  These colors were pulled from the decorative paper I used and mostly from the one with the bikes.  There’s just about all the main colors… red, orange, yellow, green and blue.

Here’s a close up of the sentiment that I stamped on the ticket stub.  This stub was designed for journaling in your scrapbooks but I tore it in half to use on here then punched a day and month to make it look “authentic!” 

I hope you’ve enjoyed this project and remember these images are on sale exclusively at Little Miss Muffet Stamps!!  Click on the Swings ‘n Slides theme or search for Carnival at the top – there are many to choose from but I know you’re going to want them all!!  😀
