Dexter Ice Cream

Little Miss Muffet Stamps is sponsoring the challenge today at Cards und More and I thought I’d join along with a project of my own.  The theme is “Christmas” and I wanted to share a tag I created using the Cutters Baggie and Tag die.   
Here’s my latest project using Dexter Ice Cream from Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  Dexter was colored with my Marvy Le Plume markers.  I had actually colored Dexter long before but went over a couple areas so I could use it on this project.  The ice cream and hat were more of a pink but I wanted a red.  This is one of those times that the alcohol markers come in handy.  I grabbed a red Copic marker that I liked and lightly colored over those areas until it turned red.  Simple! 
 

Jr. Hatter Lilith

This project is all about friendship to me.  The image was colored with all my friends at the Texas Copic Retreat last year.  I believe this is my last image from the retreat to be put onto a card and shared – however, don’t quote me on that.  LOL.

The images used are Jr. Hatter Lilith from Little Miss Muffet Stamps and two from Make it Crafty, Spring Pebble Ground and Spring Fence

I mentioned it was cleared with all my friends, right?  Well, not only with them, but by them too!  This was a round robin style activity that we thought of.  Everyone stamped an image to color and pass around the room.  We all had a small amount of time to add something to the image before we passed it to the right.  Once the images traveled around the room and back to the owner, it was completely covered. 

It was such a fun project and now we all have something that was colored by each of us.  I loved it!

Fergus with Bouquet

I’ve been working on putting all my colored images onto cards and I’m finally getting down to the bottom of my stack.  Again.  I have a tenancy to build up a stockpile and then repeat the process. 

This card uses Fergus with Bouquet from Wild Rose Studio.  I colored it with the Marvy Le Plume markers then went with a bright and cherry color palette with the papers.  The raffle tickets are actually real ones that I had to save to see if my number was chosen.  It wasn’t.  But at least I can use them for a card and still get some benefit out of them.  He he he

Fancy Sunbonnet Snowball & Park Glen Door Metal Die

It’s the 100th Challenge at Little Miss Muffet Challenges and we’re having an Anything Goes challenge that runs all month long!  Not only that, there are three chances to win!  So come on over and show us what you’re making this season.  😀

For my project I’ve used Fancy Sunbonnet Snowball rubber stamps and Park Glen Door Metal Die, both from Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  The markers I used are both the Marvy LePlume plus Copics. I also doodled around the edges too using one of Faye‘s doodle ideas.

The charms are actually necklace charms and I clipped off the ring part so they made nice snowflakes.  Then the door handle is a photo anchor thing with a gemstone brad in the center.  The screen mesh behind it is also something you can find at LMMS and can be used on both style door diecuts.  Lastly the bow and friends charm and a few things in the back of my stash that I thought would be fun to use.  That’s my project – thanks for dropping by!

Swings ‘n Slides Vanilla

Today starts a new challenge at Little Miss Muffet Stamps and it’s an “Anything Goes” theme – so you can make a card for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Birthdays, or even Thinking of You cards are all on the menu!  There is a little twist, however, in that I’d like to see you use stamps from my favorite brands… basically everything at LMMS, of course!  Here’s my project…

I used Swings ‘n Slides Vanilla from Little Miss Muffet Stamps which I colored with Marvy Le Plume markers.  I’m lucky that this was an Anything Goes challenge, in a way, because I nabbed this one from the already-colored-bin and then made a card at last minute to share.  Teehee  My desk is a mess, which isn’t a new story lately, so I grabbed things that were closest at hand.  But the best part is is I added the doodles in the background as a tribute to Faye.  Thanks Faye, you’re the best!

Sunbonnet Strawberry Big

Sometimes the project is all about the colors for me and how they work together so I’m pleased at how this project turned out.  I liked the combination of baby blue with pinks on this project.  🙂  The stamp I used is Sunbonnet Strawberry Big rubber stamp from Little Miss Muffet Stamps. The big strawberry gave me a chance to try coloring around the seeds giving the strawberry an edge.  I was hoping the seeds would look more realistic but I think I reversed the shadow on the edge. LOL  Well, I tried and that counts.  😀

I colored this using the Marvy Le Plume markers and used my sewing machine to stitch around the card.  The pink drops are those melty plastic craft beads that I placed in the oven to melt into this shape.  Thanks to Rosemary who pointed me to a tutorial on how to do it, I was able to create a whole bunch.  It was fun and an inexpensive way to get a pile of dew drops to use.

Animal Cracker Circus Koala

Here’s a birthday card I had fun with!  The image is Animal Cracker Circus Koala from Imaginisce and the sentiment is from Inkadinkado.  I have created a few birthday cards with images from this series and this is my last one to show.  Circus animals area always fun to color because of the little bits of color added from the clothing. 

The card was created and kept flat so that I could easily mail this one.  The image was colored with the Le Plume Marvy markers which are still fun to use.  Hope you enjoy and have a fab-tabulous weekend!
