Guest Designer at Little Miss Muffet

Good morning everyone!  I have been so lucky to be a guest designer over on the Little Miss Muffet Challenge Blog for the month of July.

 

They have a new challenge that is starting today and the theme is "Baby, Baby", so I decided to use the Hanging Clothes Baby digi.  I colored the images with copics and then fussy cut them and added them to a length of twine.  I thought the buttons would be a cute way to finish off the image.  

Be sure to stop by the Little Miss Muffet Challenge Blog to see the projects by their amazing team and to find all the challenge details!  I want to thank Faye and the rest of her amazing team for allowing me to play along with them this month - it was so much fun!  

Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs, Anita

7KCF Challenge - Get Wordy

Happy Wednesday!  We have a new challenge for you over on the 7KCF Challenge Blog.  Our challenge is "anything goes", with an optional twist of "get wordy" (add a sentiment).





I used this cute Shopping Marci from La-La Land Crafts and colored her with copics.  The Wrought Iron Fence Die is also from La-La Land Crafts.  I added a few sequins to give my card a little bit of sparkle and paper-pieced the shopping bags.  Be sure to stop by the 7KCF Challenge Blog to see what the rest of the team is sharing today!

Happy Birthday Mouse

Today I have a card featuring one of the newer images by Bugaboo Stamps.


This sweet little image is Mouse - Big Flower and I thought he would make a perfect birthday card!  I colored him with copics and colored pencils and added some Glossy Accents to his nose and the little lady bug on the flower.  I used StarDust Stickles on the dragonfly's wings.  I'm entering this card in the Stella Says Sketch Challenge 212 so of course I used their sketch.  This was a very quick and easy birthday card.  There are so many cute Bugaboo images so be sure to check out their shop.

Thanks for stopping by.

Time For Tea Designs

Good morning all!  I hope you're enjoying your weekend so far.  Today I have a male card to share.


I used the Football Adam image from Time For Tea Designs.  Of course here in the states we would call him Soccer Adam, right?  Anyway, he's a perfect image for a male card.  I'm not sure what occasion I'll be using this card so I didn't add a sentiment.  I colored him with copics and added some grass with my colored pencils.  My only embellishments are a few stars.  The papers are some I've had in my stash for a very long time.

Thanks for stopping by!

A New Challenge at Little Miss Muffet

Good morning to all of you!  This month I'm a guest designer over on the Little Miss Muffet Challenge Blog and they have a new challenge starting today.


I decided to use this sweet little Polka Dot Pals Neomie for my card.  Isn't she adorable?  This image just screams summer to me and I love watermelon so I immediately fell in love with this little cutie.  I colored the image with my copics and added the grass with Prismacolor pencils.  The new challenge is "anything goes" so be sure to stop by the Little Miss Muffet Challenge Blog to get all the details and to see what their amazing DT created this week.

7KCF Challenge - Anything Goes

Happy Wednesday!  We have a new challenge for you over on the 7KCF Challenge Blog.  Our challenge is "anything goes", so easy, right?


I used this sweet stamp Mouse On Bluebell from Wild Rose Studio.  Isn't this little mouse a cutie?  I colored the image with copics and colored pencils and use some Star Dust Stickles in the center of the flowers.  I don't use purple on my cards very often because I can never get a good photo of a card with purple.  Honestly, the bluebells in this photo perfectly match the dp.  How in the heck can my photo come out so totally different?  Am I the only person that's purple-challenged?  The butterfly is from the Rhone Butterfly Wings Die from Memory Box.  Be sure to stop by the 7KCF Challenge Blog to see what the rest of the team is sharing today!

Guest Designer at Art by Mi Ran

( ** Please scroll down for Your Next Stamp Fun Friday post ** )



Hello again!  This is my second post today.  A few weeks ago Mi Ran invited me to be a guest designer on the Art By Mi Ran Challenge Blog.  Well, I love her images so of course I was super excited and said YES! 


It was so hard to choose which image to color as they are all gorgeous!  But I finally decided on Heart Sign Digi and used my copics to color her.  I decided to go with a clean and simple card so that the focus is on the image.  Be sure to stop by the Art by Mi Ran Challenge Blog to see what her DT is sharing today. 

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Little Miss Muffet - Peggy Sue Hatter

( ** Please scroll down for the SugarPea Designs blog hop and my 7KCF posts ** )

Good afternoon.  I'm just popping in to share a card I made for Inspiration Thursday over in the Little Miss Muffet Facebook Group.


This gorgeous image is Peggy Sue Hatter from Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  I have to admit that the folds in her dress really intimidated me and I started to choose another image to color.  But I figured I might as well give it a try!  I'm sure I could benefit from some lessons on coloring folds but I'm not unhappy with my results.  I used some older dp from My Mind's Eye - I love this paper and thought the pattern was perfect for this lady! 

Be sure to check out the Little Miss Muffet Facebook Group for gorgeous inspiration from their DT, and you can find even more inspiration over on the Little Miss Muffet Challenge Blog

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day!

Good morning.  Today I'm sharing a sweet image from Saturated Canary.




This cutie is Little Lady Bug but I decided to make her a little bumble bee instead!  I used the Memory Box Honeycomb Stencil to make my background paper.  I colored the image with colored pencils and gamsol ... no copics!  The butterfly is actually two separate dies.  I used the Rhone Butterfly Wings Die to cut the butterfly in black cardstock, and then I layered that on a vellum butterfly that I cut using the Effera Butterfly Wings Die.  I added a black seam binding bow and a small pearl on the butterfly.  And of course lots and lots of Glamour Dust on her wings and antennae.
