Luna Bitterfrost Birthdays Rock

It’s the second day of releases at Little Miss Muffet Stamps and our day to show off the new Pollycraft stamps now available through LMMS!!  I have invited Paula to illustrate for me and I’m excited that she said yes – it was a grand day!  😀  There are twelve stamps in the store today and two of them are brand new – so be sure to visit the Little Miss Muffet Challenge & Release Blog for inspiration and then the LMM Store for some shopping.  😀

For my project today I used Luna Bitterfrost Birthdays Rock and the new Park Glen Door Diecut (with the included screen mesh) both from Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  Then the sentiment is a Kid’s Quote from Inkadinkadoo.

This is a short post because I’m actually out on vacation and my internet connection is practiacally useless!  LOL  However, there is a sale goingon while I’m away and you can read about those details HERE on the challenge & release blog.  Thanks for coming by!

Grampa Grumps

It’s New Release day over at Little Miss Muffet Stamps and today we have several new images to show off! I’m using Grampa Grumps which fits my mood perfectly today. LOL I found the perfect sentiment to go along with him and I love this new color combination of pink too which is R81, R56 and R59.

This little guy also comes as a variation holding a sign that says “NO!” which is where he got his name from – his expression and the “no” answer reminds me of a grumpy Grandpa. LOL Don’t you think? Be sure to head on over to the Little Miss Muffet Blog to see all the new release inspiration! Plus there are details on how to win prizes for this week and on going with every new release!!

I’d like to enter this into the following challenges:

Lydia Burton Chibi

Are you ready for some more Tim Burton goodness? The next Burton Chibi we have to show is Lydia and if you’ve already been to the SBS Blog then you’ve already seen the fabulous inspiration from the other design team and know that this is one versatile gal. 😀 There’s no work necessary to convert her… as you can see, she also make a perfect birthday card!

The image is Lydia Burton Chibi from Simply B Stamps which will be released tomorrow! The card was cut from the book looking Spellbinder’s label. The left side was folded and placed just inside the diecut so it could be a card. I used white paper and cut the other smaller shape for the inside to look like a book.

The rest of the card was put together with odds and ends from the table… you know, all those things that I’m too lazy to put oaway or find homes for?! Yep, those! I’ve had the party hat stickers on my desk since before Christmas if you can believe that. LOL

If you like this image just wait until the next one! I’m so excited and you’ll NEVER guess which Tim Burton character it’s going to be! LOL In fact, if you can then I’ll offer a random winner a free digi from Little Miss Muffet Stamps! Just leave your comment below and you have until 8:00 pm Central US Time today to add your guesses. 😀 I’ll post the winner on Friday with the SBS Blog Hop. Good luck!

I’d like to enter this into the following challenge:

Spaghetti Christian

Welcome back to the next day of previews for Simply Betty Stamps! Today from the Teen Scene Kitchen Fun theme we’re showing off Spaghetti Christian. You can also check out all the other wonderful creations from the design team on the Simply Betty Blog!

On my card I also used a few other stamps to add to the kitchen ambiance – from the top down there is Knife and Fork from Magnolia, Candelabra from Inkadinkado and Friendship Tickets from Whimsy with the accompanying metal die. I made a bunch of those at the same time so I’m sure you’ll be seeing more later on. ;D And of course, the paper I used is more DCWV Nana’s Kitchen – I was pleased to find a few non-pink sheets.

This guy was so fun and quick to color up and I can see him being used for several occasions. This one is intended more for a birthday card or personal invite to a romantic dinner. I went with more traditional chef colors on the white but gave him green tipped hair for a splash of color. Hope you like this and bon appétit!

Rudolph Head Caleb

We’re on a roll – day six of eight of the Sketchy Zombies from Simply Betty Stamps! Today is all about Rudolph Head Caleb on the other half of the Christmas-Halloween melded journal page. ;D

The background is the other half of Mistletoe Archway with an added tree from the Winter Objects, both from Make it Crafty. There is even a skull stamp on the side I used from Inkadinkado! Here’s the full project with both sides taped together. It would have been fun to use the same background for all the pages and then I could flip to mix and match! Well… that’s why they say hindsight is 20/20!

Here’s a close up of Caleb with is blue hair (which I like better than the pink hair in the winter scene). In the background you can see the tree which was super easy to color – just dot YG61, YG63 and YG67 for the green and the shadow on the snow was done with B91 and C1. (Or it could have been C3.)

I also scanned this before cutting it apart – sometimes it helps me to look at it from a different perspective plus it’s also fun to look at it without all the embellishments. Hope you like it and be sure to come back tomorrow for the second half of yesterday’s project! 😀

12 Days of Halloween

Here are my final projects for the Simply Betty Stamps 12 Days of Halloween and it’s a good thing that a blog post doesn’t count toward the project! LOL I’ll be coming back in to add more pictures, descriptions and details. Until then… enjoy!

… okey, dokey, I’m back! I’ve put in a vampire movie, grabbed the kids’ Halloween candy and I’m ready to sit back and relax. ;D So let’s get to it…

Sixth day of Halloween
My true love gave to me…
Six goblins gobblings!

The Simply Betty characters I used are Raven & Rio, Max & Miller and Louie & Lola and they were colored green for good measure. The combination I used for the skin was YG91, Y28 and YG93 (maybe YG95).

I had originally planned to color all six Teen Scenes gobbling and place them on a journal page but time ran away from me. It was a good thing that these three brought along their pets to help gobble down that barbecue to count as six! The background is made up of images from Make it Crafty including Aussie BBQ and Urban Street elements; I also used Fine Swirls chippies on two of the cards.

Eighth day of Halloween
My true love gave to me…
Eight monsters shrieking!

Everyone knows that kids are monsters, right? So in this project I used Jude from Simply Betty Stamps jammin’ on his electrical guitar. The other seven monsters are in the Spooky House which is from Make it Crafty, peeking out the windows.

This scene actually reminds me Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends so I had to include Master Blooregard Q. Kazoo in the top window, also known as Bloo. (Love that cartoon!) The other monsters (imaginary friends) are just eyes peeking out of the darkest side of the house. The house was colored the same way Jane did as I loved how hers turned out.

Eleventh day of Halloween
My true love gave to me…
Eleven casks a-leaning!

I didn’t exactly have any casks on hand so I improvided and used a potion bottle plus ten glasses of leathal doses! Remember my plan to use all my Simply Betty Stamps to color with? Well, I was getting down to my last four to choose from (so I’ll have to get more now!) and none really worked so I used one of my first stamps instead, Lola.

I’m sure you’ve noticed that huge eye by now, which is from Inkadinkadoo, and something I’ve been wanting to incorporate into a project all week now. For inspiration I looked up eyeballs in Google… and did you know some people are getting them tattoed?! Nope, didn’t know that either! Lastly I used a left over tombstone from Epitaphs, also from Inkadinkadoo, and the potion and drinks are accessories from Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps.

This completes the 12 Days of Halloween challenges. If you have a favorite of the 12, then I’d love to hear about it! 😀 I’ll lave you with a parting shot of Jude who will provide the music for the credits. Happy Halloween!!

Update: I’m the 2012 DT winner of the 12 Days of Halloween at Simply Betty Stamps!
