New Polka Dot Pals!

I've really been looking forward to telling you about this new release from Little Miss Muffet Stamps,
and now I can! YAY!
There's more new Polka Dot Pals released today :)
and they are just as adorable too, and now you can add some ready made faces if you don't feel confident enough to draw them yourself...

Meet Issie, she has been coloured with promarkers, and i've added one of the faces to her.
The sky has been sponged. Then I added some white flock for the snow at the bottom.
The snowflake paper is from Dovecraft's merry magic paper pad with a strip of paper from First Edition's silent night pad at the bottom. I paper pricked around the papers and drew on my 'stitches' with a red marker.
The sentiment is computer generated, next to this i've added some snowballs, which are little pompoms cut off a scrap of ribbon.

I'd like to enter this card at:

Party Monster

Here's a quick make from me.
This cute and fun image is from Pollycraft, bought before Paula closed its doors. Isn't it fab?

I've used Lime Twist - Life of the Party papers from My Mind's Eye. and used similar coloured promarkers to colour up Party Monster.
'mikey' is die cut using By the Letter dies from Die-namics, and the '3' is a chipboard number.

"I need a card for tomorrow"

This is what I was told last night while at work. Why do lads always leave it late to get cards eh? must be a genetic thing, cos girls are always (ok, mostly) well prepared for such events, especially if it's their mothers birthday.
This is what I have made, apparently his mom likes wine and flowers... well who doesn't?! ;)

This beautiful image is from DigiStamp Boutique, meet Alyssa. I've coloured her with promarkers then used a die from a Marianne Creatables set to frame her. Incidently, I received Alyssa as part of a challenge prize from Charisma Cardz, and the die set as part of a challenge prize from Crafty Catz :)
The papers are both from the same paper pad, MME's Lime Twist - Life of the party.
'mom' was cut using mint green glitter card and my Die-namics By The Letter dies, and the number 60 was stamped and coloured in the same colour as the dress, then framed using another of those Marianne dies.
The flowers were stamped using SU's One of a Kind stamp set, then punched out using the matching boho blossoms punch, before finishing each flower with a pale green crystal gem. The leaves are a woodware punch.
Hope his mom likes it, and hope she has a fab 60th birthday too.

I'm entering this card at:

Sketchy Colors - white and green
(hope the splash of pink and red is ok?)

DigiStamp Boutique - October challenge


Today is the day we start our latest challenge over at Little Miss Muffet challenges.
This time, we are asking you to be Spooktacular!
so anything halloweeny will be perfick :)

I've used the Bugaboo image Fancy Sunbonnet Witch, and coloured her with promarkers.
I have used navy glitter card as the main background piece, and layered this and the image onto a pale purple shimmer paper.
The purple multi paper across the card is a scrap left from Provocraft's 'tags, bags, boxes & more' paper pad (bought way back when I used to have a cricut machine a few years ago), I edged this paper top and bottom with the moon and stars design ribbon, which I have also had for years, it shouted out to me from the bottom of my ribbons tub, needing to be used on a card, so here it is.
The frog is a magnolia stamp.

LMM release day!

YAY!, it's time for another new release at Little Miss Muffet Stamps, I know that you all look forward to them as much as us Little Misses do ;)
This time is the turn of some delightful new Pollycraft images, and yes, sadly, Pollycraft is closing its doors next week, but you can still get your Pollycraft fix by shopping at LMM ;)
For my card this week, I've used Swings n' Slides Student...

The red spotty & ledger papers are a double sided sheet from MME's Stella & Rose 'Gertie' pad.
The tape measure paper is by Basic Grey from their 'life of the party' paper pad.
I embossed a piece of gold vellum with my swiss dots folder to place behind the image and the 'abc' die cut letters (die-namics, by the letter).

The layout for this card is from this weeks sketch challenge at the Sweet Stop.
I'd also like to enter this card at

It's a Doodle!

You can be as creative as you like for the new challenge at Little Miss Muffet, we want to see some doodling on your cards or projects please.
I decided to doodle paw prints around the edge of this card blank...

The image I've used (Plush Kitty) was a freebie a few months ago, and although it isn't available on its own in the store today, it is available as part of the image Trick or Kitty, so you can easily cut around Kitty if you wanted to, although I do have it on good authority that Kitty may be available on its own again one day.
And of course Trick or Kitty is just perfect for all your Halloween projects, so would be a great buy anyway.

The paper behind kitty is by First Edition, from their 'silent night' paper pad.
The sentiment is hand written.

You can see more 'doodletastic' work by checking out what the other Little Misses have done HERE ;)

I'd like to enter this card at:

The party is still going on

Saturday's are now Super Saturday's at Little Miss Muffet and this week we want to remind you of the fab Graffiti Party, where you will find inspiration, discounts and freebies, as well as entering the challenge to be in with a chance to win yourself some graffiti and urban prizes from both LMM and MiC.
You have until October 20th to enter.
Barbara has designed some brilliant extra graffiti images, one of which is today's freebie...
Graffiti Krew Writer...

I also used Graffiti background swipe, Graffiti background drip, and 'brickworks' from Make it Crafty's Urban Streets collection.
I coloured the images with promarkers and cut out the scene to give it a torn look. I coloured Krew Writer again and added some foam pads to the back to lift it slightly from the background, then used more foam pads to raise the scene from the kraft card blank.
The only thing I added myself was writing HB2U on the blue background swipe.
These images are so much fun to colour, if you think it's not your bag, you may surprise yourself, step out of your comfort zone and give them a try, who knows where your imagination will take you once you start creating. 
You can find all the LMM graffiti images HERE

Hope to see you at the party! 

I'd like to enter this card at:
Inky Impressions - blue as the main colour
Cute Card Thursday - signs of distress

Bugaboo release at LMM

It's time for the Bugaboo Autumn release today at Little Miss Muffet Stamps, where you have a selection of cute new skelekinz images and a couple of fancy sunbonnet images to choose from.
Here is my card, using Skelekinz Balloon...

I coloured her with promarkers and then framed her using my cArt-Us ornate frame die.
I wanted to keep the layout simple so that I could have the image as the main focus, so I used a sketch from last weeks Freshly Made Sketches challenge.
The spotty paper is by Dovecraft, from the Merry Magic paper pad.

To see more of today's new release, please go to the LMM blog to see the delightful cards made by the other Little Misses with these cute images.
Oh and there's still time to make a christmas card for our current challenge.

For Ethan

Ethan is my cousin's little boy, he was a poorly baby but thankfully he is fine and healthy now, and will be celebrating his first birthday on Friday :)
Here's the card i've made for him using my fave Mo Manning image.

The image is called Spit Happens, and is my go-to image for baby and first birthday cards.
My cousin is a Liverpool fan, and says that Ethan will be having his first LFC football strip lol, so that is why I have given the image a red top and used red lettering.
I cut out the 1 shape from a white A5 card blank then drew around the shape (in the reverse) onto the back of my background paper which is by Nitwits (called 'little mittens'). Once I got the shape, I cut in a few mm from each line so that the paper would have the white card stock border around it.
The sentiment is computer generated, and 'ethan' was cut using my die-namics 'by the letters' dies.

I'd like to enter this card at:
DP2 challenge - for the boys
Here Come The Boys - baby boy
Crafting By Designs - anything goes
Creative Inspirations - no square or rectangle cards
Paper Crafting Journey - for a boy

Thanks for stopping by today xx
