Little Miss Muffet Stamps~Candy Floss Crew EBONY

Happy Friday everyone!! Today, I'm showcasing Candy Floss Crew Ebony from Little Miss Muffet Stamps. I LOVE the entire line of Candy Floss Crew stamps! They are so awesome and adorable!

Since Memorial Day is coming up, I decided to go with a patriotic card to say THANK YOU to all those who have served and continue to serve in our armed forces. My dad was a 1st Sergeant in the Army. He passed away several years ago and I miss him tremendously! Here's to you DAD!

Candy Floss Crew Ebony is printed on Xpress It Blending Card and colored with Copics. I am at my friend Renate's house in California and we've been spending time in the evenings crafting. This card is a collaborative effort! I LOVE that she's into card-making too and can help me!! LOVE her bunches!! :)

Copics:
Skin: E000, E00, E02, E11, E15
Hair: E44, E79, Black
Red: R24, R27, R29, R89
Blue: B14, B41, B45

The decorative papers are from an old DCWV The Stack 6 12x12 paper pad. The stars were cut out using a My Favorite Things die. The ribbon is from Renate's stash. We used a sketch from IspySketches (ISSC44) for inspiration.

 LMMS just started a new ANYTHING GOES challenge on the LMMS Challenge Blog so you still have 11 days to enter your creations. I hope to see you all participating! Also, be sure to check out the LMMS STORE to get some amazing stamps and dies!

7 Kids College Fund~Mama Elephant Arctic Penguins + By DIEzyne Dies

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you had an awesome weekend! My was busy getting ready for my trip to Cali! I can't wait to see my friend for a week. It's going to be a nice little vacation! :)
 
I thought I'd pull out these cute and adorable Arctic Penguins from Mama Elephant today because I LOVE them! 7 Kids also carries the matching die set to these stamps. They are my fave and require very little coloring! I just used an orange sharpie for the beaks and feet and a red one for the hearts. :)


There seems to be a rise on Clean and Simple cards lately so I decided to give it a go. I just used white cardstock and a couple of dies from By DIEzyne Dies, along with a square punch. The panel behind the penguins is embossed with Crafter's Companion Petite Dots 6x6 Embossing Folder. I used a Copic Multiliner to draw in the dots and lines. The sentiment is from Mama Elephant Everyday Greetings Clear Stamp Set.
