Feliz Navidad

It's Super Saturday! so that means a specially priced spotlight image and a freebie.
ah, but Barbara, being the generous person she is, wants to offer you more :) 
Introducing the first of the new $1 digi images!
Yep, you can buy this image for a limited time, for just $1 from Little Miss Muffet Stamps...

It's called Cactus Christmas Tree, and you can get yours HERE.
I coloured it with promarkers and then cut it out with a cart-us die. except that after cutting around the star and using the die, the star got a little bit damaged so I added a gold punched star over top of the original one.
The background paper is Lime Twist - Life of the Party from My Mind's Eye.
I googled the sentiment, then printed it out to colour in. Happy Christmas/Feliz Navidad!

Black Friday and Cyber Monday Sale

Happy Thanksgiving to my American friends :)

To celebrate, Barbara is offering a huge five day sale over at Little Miss Muffet Stamps.
You won't want to miss out on a great deal, but please before you go shopping, let me show you my card for today...

The picture isn't too good, sorry about that, the weather is very dull at the moment.
For this card I've used Holidays Christmas Tree, I printed the image a few times so that I could layer it with foam pads at the bottom of each layer of branches and used glue at the top. I've used promarkers, then used pencils over top. The tree has bling with flatback gems for baubles.
The paper is by Dovecraft (Merry Magic).

There are more inspirational cards on the LMM blog. The Little Misses have made some cracking cards let me tell you ;)

Give geese a chance

This little fella wants you to give geese a chance to be on your dinner table this Christmas....

This image is the new freebie for Super Saturday from Little Miss Muffet Stamps and is called Sitting Turkey. I coloured him with my promarkers, then added a googly eye after cutting him out.
The sign is a computer generated sentiment which was been layered with some dark brown wood grain paper by Basic Grey from their 'life of the party' paper pad and strengthened with black cardstock..
The patterned paper behind is from Hot Off The Press (called Home Grown), I paper pierced around the edge and dragged a brown pen through the holes for some faux stitching. The cream piece has been punched with my SU eyelet border punch.

*sigh*  I wish I hadn't stuck down that bow, it looks out of place :/ maybe a strip of hessian or some natural twine would have looked better.

Please pop over to the LMM blog where you can see some more examples of this freebie and of this weeks spotlight stamp Happy Mail.

It'll be all white on the night

It's time for a new Little Miss Muffet challenge, and this time we would like to see your WOW cards (white on white) except of course you can use colours in your image.
This challenge will be perfect for a Christmas card make eh?...

I've used Santa's Reindeer, a Pollycraft image, available from the store, there's a whole load of critters available, go take a look, there's something for all occasions, and lots for Christmas.
I have used 2 of my old faithful embossing folders, swiss dots and snowflakes. The little tree is a sizzlits die (doodle dies christmas set), and I lightly sponged all 3 just to define the different pieces.
I finished the card with a stamped greeting from SU's 'best yet' stamp set

Christmas Eatings

Time for another fabulous new release over at Little Miss Muffet Stamps :)
Prepare for cuteness overload!...

This adorable character is Pudding Chester. If you love Chester, then you'll love this release ;)
I echoed the image on the left side of the card base by using a punch to look as though a bite has been taken from the card. Think that next time i'll add more bites around the edge :)
The patterned paper is Nordic Christmas (First Edition).
I die cut the corners, the greeting and the holly leaves glued to the greeting, then finished the card with red crystal gems.

For my card, I coloured the image with my promarkers including the surrounding frame, which is a lea'bilities die. I added a bit of bling to the frame with some cerise gemstones.
I punched out the sentiment, which is from SU's best yet stamp set, then cut off the top of the punched circle and placed it over the edge of the frame. I finished off by paper piercing the edge for a faux stitched look.

Sunflower Patch

Happy Saturday everyone! as you know by now, at Little Miss Muffet, Saturdays are SUPER!
Not only can you buy the spotlighted stamp at a super duper discounted price, you can also grab yourself a freebie! :)
This week, Barbara is giving away this fabulous freebie; Sunflower Patch...

I decided I wanted to fussy cut this great image, it took a while to do, but i'm very happy with the outcome :)
The image didn't need much else in my eyes, so I kept it clean and simple by simply embossing the kraft card base (swiss dots folder) and stamping the greeting (from SU's 'Bring on the cake' stamp set). Simples!

I'd like to enter this card at:
My Mums Craft Shop - autumn colours
Crafty Creations - autumn colours

I won the challenge at Crafty Creations! YAY! xx

Seeing Dots

Like many of you, I love the Polka Dot Pals. So when I heard that the new challenge at Little Miss Muffet is 'Seeing Dots' I knew straight away where to look for my image. Only problem is choosing which one because they are all so cute!...

This is Katie. I love her ringlet pig tails, and isn't she cuddling just the cutest puppy ever?
As usual, I coloured the image with my promarkers.
The dotty paper is by My Mind's Eye, from their Lime Twist - Life of the Party paper pad. I just love the colours in this collection.
The sentiment is from Create with TLC, I thought it suited the image perfectly.
I finished off with a small punched heart, awwww puppy love :)
