Cozy by the Fireplace

Hello friends!  Well we have finally had a small bit of cool weather.  I can't believe it is almost the middle of Oct. and we were having temperatures in the 70's.  I almost had to turn the heat on this morning.  For my card today I used this wonderful Fireplace Background stamp by Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  Nothing better than sitting by a cozy fireplace to take the chill out of the air.


I used copics and color pencils to color this image.  It makes me excited for Christmas.  It will be here before you know it.  This whole year has been going by so quickly.  I hope you all have a wonderful day and thanks so much for stopping by.

Hugs and smiles,

Isn't she sweet?   Just a clean and simple card.   I have colored her with copics,    added a spot of gingham and some tiny clouds to complete the look.  I hope you like it!  Thanks for stopping by!

Fun with Little Miss Muffet Stamps

Hello friends!  I have a couple of cards to share with you today.  For my first card I used Pdp-Kacee.  I didn't know what to do with this image at first.  With Halloween on my mind, that is the direction I went with.  At first I thought I would try to make her face into a skull to match her skeleton, but that didn't turn out.  So I decided to go with spider webs and a spider nose.  I kept it black and white with pops of red.


I thought the fish net stockings went well with the spider webs.  I would love to see how other people would use her and I would love if Barbara would use my card and color her to make her pop off the page.  I have the hardest time making things look 3 dimensional.  Barbara if you have time I would love the teaching lesson. ;)  Will you accept the challenge?

Here is my second card using the adorable Candy Monster.


Who doesn't love candy corn?  He was so fun to color!  I hope you feel inspired to make some Halloween cards.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hugs and smiles,
Janice

Good Bye Wisconsin Hope to see you next year!

I am sitting here at the airport in Green Bay waiting to board my flt back home to Massachusetts.  I had such a wonderful time with family and friends.  With limited crafting supplies I made this card.


This is a digital stamp so I brought it up on my laptop and traced the image onto a lightweight cardstock.  I tried to use colored pencils but wasn't getting the result I desired.  So I colored the image with a standard pencil and added a little pink.  I was pleased with the image so I cut it out, added texture and doodles, and layers to complete the card.  This is polka Dot Pals Tracey and you can find her here.  Going to board the plane soon.  Hope you like it.

Hugs and smiles,
Janice

LMMS Anything Goes Challenge 169

Hello friends!  We have a new Anything Goes Challenge 169 at Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  I used this wonderful Front door card kit.  Barbara's card kits are fantastic, packed with lots of goodies!  I changed my design a little to show that you can do it another way.


I scored the blue cardstock to make it look like the siding on a house.  I stamped a blue door and colored the door frame to look like wood.  I like Barbara's sample better, but think this one is okay too!  Thanks for stopping by!

Polka Dot Pals Jennifer

Hello friends!  Here is a card I made when I traveled to Arizona for the advanced copic coloring retreat.  The stamp Pdp-Jennifer was made by Barbara, artist and owner of Little Miss Muffet Stamps, for her friend Jennifer.  Jennifer is the instructor of the copic classes I have attended.  She is fun, talented, and sweet to "boot".  You can learn more about her here.


She's been colored with Copics and white gel pen on her skirt.  We were given a kit with the papers inside and then chose our copic colors accordingly.  I usually color first and find papers later.  Having the papers picked first makes it a bit easier, but old habits die hard. ;)  Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.

Hugs and smiles,
Janice

LMMS Polka Dot Pals Renata

I absolutely adore these new images at Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  This is Polka Dot Pals Renata.  Last week I used Pdp Ximena to make a spinner card.  This week I have used Pdp Renata to do the no-line coloring technique.


She has been colored with copics and colored pencils.  The no-line technique is when you stamp or print an image very lightly and then color the image.  I use that technique often, because I like the challege of it and the look.  Have you ever tried it?  Zoe from Make It Crafty started the technique years ago.  I found this from 2011.  Zoe is amazing.  I hope you check it out.

Hugs and smiles,
Janice
