Funny Faces

I pulled this colored image out of the back and dusted it off so I could finally put it onto a card. I forgot how long ago it was… but I’m not counting.  LOL  This is Funny Faces rubber stamp that you’ll find at Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  I think these are such fun kiddos and have enjoyed colored it a second time.

There is lots of Creative Color Placement on this card… enough on the face that I’ll call it Extreme Color Placement. Below you’ll see the before and after of the faces.

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. 

Happy Twila

 Merry Christmas!  I hope it’s full of fun, surprises and coloring!  😀

This is Happy Twila and is one of my favorite stamps this month.  I can tell that many other people love her too as she is so hard to keep stocked in the store. I can just imagine here saying “I love it” in the same sing-song way that my daughter says it.  So adorable! 

I was planning on posting a project using a Little Miss Muffet Stamp but this is pretty close.  Plus this was the only project I had ready.  LOL.  So instead, I’ll be coloring a LMM image and then I can still get some enjoyment out of what I’ve drawn.  Sigh.  I know just the stamp I’ll color too.  🙂

Happy Twila

This is one of the cutest stamps I’ve cleared this month and I wish I could say it was one that I drew.  But alas, it wasn’t.  Don’t let that deter you, cuz sometimes an images just resonates with our inner soul and this was the one for me.  I’m allowed, right?

This is Happy Twila and I created a card using the Four Seasons Tree Die as the background.  The decorative paper was actually created by me by using the chisel tip of B01 and drawing stripes.  I then used a black liner and added some more stripes.  It was actually fun a perfect for what I needed.  This Happy Twila was actually the label from the stamp – I’ll show the one I colored in a couple days.

Super Hero Twila

I’m sharing this project for the Little Miss Muffet Challenge that is starting today.  The theme is anything goes and this gave me a chance to grab any image I wanted.  Of course, super hero girls are always top notch in our house so I had to color this Twila.  LOL

I’ve used Super Hero Twila for this project, by Roberto’s Rascals, and also the Shoot for the Moon chipboard sentiment from Make it Crafty.

I hope you can join in on the fun and share one of your creations this week!  

Squirrels and Mushrooms

Happy Birthday Faye!!   Tomorrow is Faye’s birthday and the Little Misses are all surprising her today with Faye-inspired projects.  She has always inspired us to do better even when she glitter bombs us.  LOL  (Be sure to visit the LMMS blog for more surprises and details today.)

This project is specifically for her – Faye you always inspire me with your fabulous creations!  I ordered the Mushroom Border Die (which is why I had to add it to the LMMS shop because of all your projects – such an enabler.  LOL) and created my project below.  See, I colored it just like you.  😀  I hope you are having a wonderful and colorful weekend!  *Squeezes*

The products I used on this are Squirrels, Three Mushrooms and the Mushroom Border Metal Die – which you can find in the LMMS shop.  Just saying.  ;D  I know this is more of an autumn project but I had these two stamp on my desk waiting since then to be colored.  And why not?  It’s not autumn here but it is on the other side. 

Funny Faces

Say cheese!  When I first laid eyes on the Roberto’s Rascals this was one of the first images I saw and immediately fell in love.  They’re just like my kids!  I can’t get a straight face out of them unless I threaten something fearce and then I risk the chance of getting a sad face.  LOL  But that’s why they invented digital cameras … 100 pictures… 1 good mug shot!  Yep, that’s how it is now days.  🙂

This project uses Funny Faces from Roberto’s Rascals and also the instant camera in Say Cheese from Lawn Fawn (plus sentiment and smilie face).  I colored it using the sparkly Curious Metallic Cryogen White paper and my Copic markers.  The papers are from all over the place but the dragonflies are Make it Crafty chipboard embellishments that I painted with sparkle paint.  I love those little guys!  Lastly are two corduroy buttons.

I had fun with this project!  Thanks for dropping by and I hope you had a great weekend!

If you didn’t you can start the hop HERE.

For my project I combined a monochromatic look with a no-lines technique and then added a little bit of coloring so the characters would pop out.  There are so many fun things in this stamp but I really wanted to focus on the kids at the window.  😀

Here’s a list of Copic colors that I’ve used:
C0, 1, 3, 4, 6, 8
E27, 23, 33, 21, 41
E49, 47, 44
E70, 71, 74, 77
YG63, 67, 95, 61, G20
R46, 35, 32, 30
R59, 46, 17, 14
W3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8
B00, 91, 95, 95

I used the rubber stamp and stamped it in London Gray Memento ink.

This was the perfect themed stamp for me to color as I love the scene and that it’s generic for all types of winter holidays!  Of course, I used a Christmas paper for my color selections so this one is defininatly for Christmas.  He he he  The paper ripping frame was something that “dawned” on my and half way through curling all the edges I had remembered that Jennifer just sent me a project with the same effect.  So thank you Jennifer for the burst of inspiration!  LOL
