Roses of Love

I restocked some Make it Crafty stamps in the store but I splurged and kept one for myself.  This is Roses of Love colored on Gina K cardstock.  I wanted to focus on using Distress Inks for the background so I kept the rest of the card simple. 

Distress Inks: Hickory Smoke, Iced Spruce, Bundled Sage And Peeled Paint
Copics: YG97, 95, 93, 91, V28, 25, 22, 20, BV11

Oak Tree Girl

This cute stamp is Oak Tree Girl from Wee/Whimsy Stamps.  I had fun coloring this one and adding all the autumn leaves.  I've been looking for robins when I travel because I remember them from when I was a kid.  I don't see them here in Texas or maybe they are just seasonal.  Most of the birds that I colored in the past were blue so this was a nice change. 

The face is actually the best part for enjoyment.  I love to give extra details and to brighten the eyes so this shows a comparison of a before and after.  The original eyes were used for the pupils and I built up the rest around them with Copics.

Miss Muffet Note Book

I had to keep one of the new note books for myself and even got some note books for my kiddos.  Here's a label idea that I typed up and clipped onto the front.  It can also be clipped to the inside.  Then that clip can also be used to hold notes once the book is in use.

This is great for notes, ideas, memories or stories - grab one for yourself or as a gift at LMMS.

Bob the Yeti

This is Bob the Yeti from Yumi & Fumi Handmade stamps and I colored him after seeing Emma's awesome rainbow monster.  I loved how she colored her minister and it inspired me so much that I actually colored.  Oh, yes, I did!  I don't think mine is as well done as hers but I still like how it turned out. 

I colored him with Prismacolor Pencils on Kraft paper can cased Emma's card design.  That design made it easy for me to focus on the coloring and not worry so much about the card.  Thank you Emma for the inspiration!

Honey Run

I reached for a rubber stamp to create a guy card this week for the new challenge at LMMS.  It's anything goes and you can use any stamp - so pop on over and share one of your projects today. 

The stamp I used is Honey Run which is a DoveArt Designs stamp by Jennifer Dove. 

My desk is a mess right now, no surprise, so I mainly grabbed what was on the surface.  This included the back part of a map which listed city names and pages.  I would have used the front but it was too colorful for the papers I selected, however, this side works great.

Platypus and Turtle

I was working on a few felt friends this weekend and wanted to share them.  The platypus is a pattern from the book is "Pipsqueaks, Itsy-Bitsy Felt Creations to Stitch & Love" by Sally Dixon.  Then from that, I altered the idea and made up the turtle.  These little critters are only about 2.5 inches.
