Love You for LMMS

Happy Thursday! I hope everyone is having a great week. I've had my hands full with 2 puppies recovering from spay surgery. I think I may need a vacation after these next 10 days of trying to keep them quiet LOL

It's Inspiration Week over at LMMS and my card today features one of my favorite images, Polka Dot Pals Soleil. She is making the ASL sign for "love". As the mom of a deaf son I just love the ASL images that LMMS carries! You can find Soleil in the LMMS shop HERE.

The Anything Goes Challenge is still open so head on over to the LMMS blog and play along with us!

Greetings from Santa

Happy Weds! It's time for a new challenge over at The Merry Christmas Challenge! As always its an Anything Goes challenge with an optional theme, and this week the option is 'stockings'. I'm a tad later posting my card but let me tell you, my two puppies got spayed on Monday and trying to keep them calm and not jumping around on Tuesday took all of my attention! Going to work Tues night seemed like a vacation after dealing with the puppies LOL

For my card I decided to use this older image from MFT. I just adore this images by Heather Ellis, whenever I find them in digital or stamp form I scoop them up! I already had 2 of these images colored so I created 2 of these cards to add to my 2018 Christmas card stash!

My layout was inspired by THIS card I found on pinterest. I really liked the window behind the image and the fun banners.

Warm Fuzzy Greetings

It's time for a new challenge over at Sunday Stamps and this week it's my turn for a sketch on the blog. As you can see with my card I decided to turn and rotate the sketch a bit, however you can still see all the elements from the sketch on my card.

I decided to use a recently retired set from MFT because I love this moose and we know I'm all about the moose! We've got one hanging out in the neighborhood right now but I keep seeing her at night and not during the day when I can get good pics darnit!

Anyway, to get my 3 elements I used a die from MFT and used some patterned paper for both the top and bottom portions, using green and blue to create a grass/sky type of look. I already had the moose in my stash and colored so he was popped up with dimensionals and then I colored and cut out the owl. This card is going into a card order for one of my friends here in Alaska so I wanted it to have wildlife on there that we get to see often (although she sees owls WAY more than I do, the lucky duck). I stamped the sentiment in Early Espresso and boom, a nice and easy card done.

Be Mine for LMMS

It's time for a brand new Anything Goes challenge at LMMS and this week I'm keeping the love theme going with the adorable Marley Be Mine image. This little mouse is super easy to color and you can use him for several occasions, not just Valentines Day. The colors I used were drawn from the retired SU DSP that I used on the card.

There are also brand new releases in the shop today, some of them are only $1.00! Head on over to the shop and find all the new images HERE.

After you get your new images head on over to the LMMS blog and join in on our Anything Goes challenge, we'd love to see what you create! Don't forget to check out what the rest of the DT has created this week!

I Heart You for LMMS

Oooops, I thought I had this post scheduled for Thursday but apparently I have vacation brain and forgot to do it!

It's time for Inspiration Week over at the Little Miss Muffet Stamps blog and this week I decided to use an image from the Swing N Slides line of stamps. This one is called Swing N Slides Love You Bunches and I think it's adorable! I've always been a big tomboy so images like that always call to me.

I colored my girl in with copics and then used SU framelits to cut my heart out, and then I embossed the heart with a Cuttlebug embossing folder. After that I adhered the Love You Bunches to the heart and then put together the rest of my card. There are some awesome images over at the LMMS store for Valentines Day, this is just one of many. You can find more HERE.

Don't forget, the Anything Goes challenge over at the LMMS blog is still open so come on over and play along with us, we'd love to see your creations!

Filled With Joy

It's 2018 and time to start working on Christmas cards for this year :0) Thankfully we have The Merry Christmas Challenge to help build that card stash up!

For my card I used an older Pure Innocence image of a boy caroler. It used to be offered in Heather Ellis's Etsy shop but she hasn't added it to her website, which is where all her images for sale can be found now.

I had the image colored and in my stash so I went through my paper stash to see what I had that matched and found this retired DSP from SU that had the perfect colors. I used dies from MFT to cut the main DSP panel and then used a die from one of the MFT Blueprints to cut the panel I put the sentiment on. Since the DSP is pretty busy I wanted to keep the card pretty simple and so after stamping the sentiment I popped up the image above it and called it good!

Head on over to The Merry Christmas Challenge to see what the rest of the DT created and then play along with us!

Happy Camper for Sunday Stamps

It's time for a new challenge over at Sunday Stamps and this week we have a color challenge. The colors made me think of a cool winters day, and from there I morphed into Valentines Day thinking and that is how I ended up with this camper card :)

We have many friends here in Alaska that spend the summer out and about in their RV's and so I just had to have this camper set from SugarPea Designs, it will come in handy for many different occasions. For this card I took some retired SU DSP and paper pieced the designs on the RV, then I used my copics to color in the rest of the areas. I used Night of Navy to stamp the sentiment on the retired Regal Rose DSP.

I'm also entering this into SugarPea Designs Anything Goes challenge....I used one of their older sketches for my layout.

Head on over to the Sunday Stamps blog to see what the rest of the DT created and say hi to our 2 brand new design team members! Don't forget to play along with us, we'd love to see how you interpret these colors!
