Little Miss Muffet Stamps Challenge #138-Anything Goes

Hello friends!  Time for a new challenge at LMMS.  Challenge #138-Anything Goes.  For my card I chose Sonny Honeycloud Cards and Cupcakes.  Isn't she sweet?  I colored her with copics and colored pencils.

I used E33 and E35 for her skin color.  I wanted to try a darker skin tone for a change.  I am pretty happy with the result.  I hope you will check out the challenge and join in the fun!  Thanks for stopping by!

Hugs and smiles,Janice

I am back, on the Little Miss Muffet Stamps Design Team, that is.

Hello friends!  I am so happy Little Miss Muffet Stamps has welcomed me back as a guest designer.  I love their images, and Barbara, the owner, is such a sweetheart!  For my card today I used the adorable Jr. Hatter Cherry.

Red, white and turquoise are some of my favorite color combinations, so I used those colors to create this card.  I colored her with copic markers and used colored pencils to add more shading.  I hope you like her!  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hugs and smiles

Little Miss Muffet Stamps

Hello friends.  Today I am sharing a card I am entering into the Little Miss Muffet Anything Goes Challenge #136.  I used the Swings and Slides digi stamp, Froggy.  I think it is such a cute image.

I colored the image with copic markers and used colored pencils to add some shading.  The clouds were cut from a die from My Favorite Things called Puffy Clouds.
Thanks for stopping by.

Tribute card for my sweet friend, Viv.

Just over a week ago, my sweet friend Viv lost her fight to cancer.  I really miss her.  I had the pleasure of meeting her and visiting with her the three times she came to Wisconsin.  I always called her my sweet Viv from the day we met.  It's funny because that is what Gigi said upon meeting her.  I think most people that met her referred to her as our sweet Viv.  We had the pleasure of being on the Peachy Keen Stamps design team.  She was so much fun and we all loved her.  Kathy designed this stamp set, Vivienne and friends.  Nikki made a card using this set to honor our sweet Viv and challenged others to do the same.  You can read about it and post your card here.  Here is my card.  I reverse stamped the image so that it could be me and Viv holding hands.  She touched the lives of so many and will be forever in my heart!  I miss her terribly, but I am glad she is no longer suffering!  She fought hard and never complained.  Until we meet again.  Here are some cards I made while on the Design Team with Viv.  I love the set and have used it many times.

As you can see I really like this set.  Thanks for stopping by!

Out with the old, in with the new!

Hello friends.  My time with the LMMS Design Team has ended.  (So sad! :(  )  This is my final post for now but I won't be far away!    I have really enjoyed being on the team!  It is time to welcome a new team of talent to Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  I know they are going to love it!  Barbara is such a sweetheart and Melissa is a wonderful DT coordinator, oh and those images are so darn cute!  Have you seen her latest release?  I have to say, I adore the elephants.  Here is what I created with some of them.  I hope you enjoy!

Aren't they just the cutest?  I had so much fun making this trifold card.  I used Val Gives, Tine's flower, and Tine's Friend.  Visit the store to see all of the other adorable stamps.  You won't be disappointed,

I once again used colored pencils to color my images.  Pencils used to be my go to medium when I first started making cards.  I used Crayola pencils, which I still use on occasion.  It is an inexpensive way to get started and to my surprise, they worked with gamsol.

THANK YOU BARBARA for giving me the pleasure of being on the design team!  It has been a real pleasure!  I will still be stalking you and your talented team! lol

I hope you will welcome the new team and check out all their beautiful projects here.

Hugs and smiles,

Challenge #130 - Anything Goes

It's a new challenge here at Little Miss Muffet Stamps and it's open to all to participate.  The theme is ANYTHING GOES so you can let your creativity shine.  Choose one of your favorite projects from this week and link up . . . we are excited to be inspired!  

For entering the challenge, we will feature some projects to be spotlighted plus one lucky winner will receive a$10.00 Gift Voucher to the LMMS shop.  Good luck!  

I chose to showcase this darling little mouse, Rhylie.  

I used colored pencils and made her into a calico mouse, if there is such a thing.  I will have to google it.  Probably should have done that before I colored her but hey anything goes, right?!  Enjoy!

LMMS Challenge #129 Anything Goes

Hello friends!  It is time for a new challenge at Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  Challenge #129 Anything Goes.  I hope you will play along for a chance to win a $10.00 gift voucher at the Little Miss Muffet Stamps store.  For my card today I used ball point pens to color the image.  I like to use different mediums to stretch the imagination.  I used Linking Train and Blossoms Cupcake to create my card.

It is harder to achieve the shading effects with ball point pen but it is always fun to try something new!  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Little Miss Muffet Stamps - Cute new digis in the store.

You can check out all the new digital images as well as the wide selection of stamps in the Little Miss Muffet Store.   Thanks so much for stopping by!

LMMS Challenge #128 - Favorite Little Miss Muffet Stamp

Hello everyone and Happy New Year!  (Well almost!)  Wishing you all a year filled with love, health, and happiness!

This weeks challenge at Little Miss Muffet Stamps is to use your favorite LMMS stamp.  I love the Sun Bonnet Sue stamps and chose Fancy Sunbonnet Miss Muffet.  I used colored pencils to color the image.

I used turquoise and red, two of my favorite colors, but I think I prefer Copics over color pencils.  Maybe I just haven't found the right paper to achieve the results I would like.

Here is the same image that I colored in 2014 using Copics and no-line coloring.  This stamp would be great to use paper piecing as well.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Hugs and smiles,
