Little Miss Muffet Stamps~Swings 'n Slides Perfect Christmas

Little Miss Muffet Stamps
TGIF everyone!! Hope it's been a great week for you! Today I'm sharing my latest project for Little Miss Muffet Stamps. Now you know Christmas is right around the corner, right? I can't believe it's already September. Pretty soon December will be upon us so if you are making Christmas cards you definitely want to get started now. :)

I decided to use this adorable stamp called Swings 'n Slides Perfect Christmas. I LOVE him! He's stamped on X-Press It Blending Card with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with Copic Markers.

Make it Colourful Challenge #13: Two Tone Monochromatic and Abstract Background!

**If you are looking for my The Greeting Farm post please scroll down.

 I have some awesome news to share again! I've been asked to join the Make it Colourful Challenge Team. I'm not sure about this one because all of these ladies rock at coloring!! I have so much to learn and these challenges definitely take me out of my comfort zone. But I guess that's how we learn and become better right?!!

Today starts a new MONTHLY challenge on the Make it Colourful Blog. The theme this time around is:

TWO TONE MONOCHROMATIC & ABSTRACT BACKGROUND INSPIRATION

This challenge was inspired by the amazing works of Jason Siew. Essentially it is just like coloring a monochrome image but we want you to choose ‘TWO’ colours and blend them towards one another.
Remember to use a Make it Crafty image and upload your projects to the MiC store gallery.

10344766_703475689700927_5733417317323244785_n

Here is my try at this challenge using ENCHANTED MERMAID. I did chicken out on doing the abstract background. I got scared!! I didn't want to mess up the work I already put into just the coloring!!

Copics:
Purple: BV00, V02, BV04, BV17
Pink: R81, R83, R85, R39, R89
Colorless Blender


We’d love to see you share your work of art with us. Don’t be afraid like me because YOU can do it too!! You just have to start it and then it will come together. You’re more than welcome to share your progress, possible disasters and when you triumph with us in the Facebook group here.

Have a great week!

Little Miss Muffet Stamps~Polka Dot Pals Lottie

Little Miss Muffet Stamps
TGIF everyone!! Hope it's been a great week for you! This week was the first week of school for my little guy (who's not so little anymore, haha). He started 3rd grade this year and honestly I don't know where the time has gone. The first day of school was awesome...he got up early and was ready to go, full of lots of excitement. By the 2nd day though he was whining that he was tired, said he hated school and asked if I could homeschool him so he didn't have to get up so early!! Geez, it's gonna be a long school year, LOL! To say the least, we are both glad that today is FRIDAY!!
 
Friday also means I'm back with my inspirational post for Little Miss Muffet Stamps! I decided to color up this cutie called Polka Dot Pals Lottie! Isn't she gorgeous?! I just love all that flowing hair! She's stamped on X-Press It Blending Card with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with Copic Markers.

I used some adorable dps from Simple Stories A Charmed Life 6x6 Paper Pad. The sentiment was also from the same pad. The cute die at the top is Die-namites Fancy Birdhouses. It's a pretty simple card, but I LOVE how it turned out!

Happy Tuesday everyone! Today, I'm sharing my latest cards with you using the next two stamps coming to The Greeting Farm Store this Friday that were part of the 2nd round of the Super Secret Stamp Club. I apologize for the quality of the pictures. I'm visiting my mom and I don't have my lights for brighter pics. I'll try to take some better ones in the morning. :)

The first gorgeous girl I'm showcasing today is called BEAUTY and she was Stamp #5 released in the 2nd round of the Super Secret Stamp Club. I used some gorgeous digi papers and digi elements from one of my favorite digital paper companies, MicheleRDesign. These beautiful patterned papers are called VINTAGE TEAL. The banner, bow, and sentiment are from the Element Pack 1 and Element Pack 2. The doily was from my stash.
