Dexter in Love

Happy Boxing Day!
I hope you all had a lovely day yesterday, and I hope it continues today and throughout the holidays :)
Me? i'm in work today from 9.30am until around 6 - 6.30pm this evening. So achy back and feet later me thinks, will have to soothe them with a Baileys or 2 when I get home tonight ;)

The Little Misses have more inspirational work to share with you today, here is my card, which was the card given to my parents from my son...

This adorable image is Dexter in Love, and is from the recent new release, cute eh?

The sentiment is from DigiStamp Boutigue, and nan & grandad were cut using my Die-namics By the Letter dies. The patterned papers used are by Dovecraft from the Merry Magic collection.
All that it needed to finish were 2 SU eyelet border punch borders and some punched hearts.

Have a great day!  xx

OWL I want for Christmas is you

Merry Christmas everyone!
Hope you've had some lovely gifts delivered by the big man in red ;)

This fabulous image is called Winter Owls from Little Miss Muffet Stamps, and I think it SO deserves to be the star of the show of this card, it's an amazing image don't you agree?
This was so much fun to colour up with my promarkers, to start with though, I sponged in the sky and then added white flock to the snow after i'd finished colouring.
All that was need to finish was the sentiment which is computer generated.

Do you want to treat yourself to some new images? and the chance to get an exclusive FREE image too, then remember, LMM's holiday special is available right up until the 31st December ;)
Have a wonderful Christmas Day! xx

There's no challenge this week from Little Miss Muffet,
 instead, the Little Misses will be sharing some inspirational cards with you.
You may recognise this little cutie from our Challenge Blog and Facebook group. Neva is an exclusive Polka Dot Pals image that Barbara will send to you for free if you place an order over $10, isn't she lovely? thanks Barbara, a HUGE Merry Chistmas to you and your family xx
Here's what i've done with Neva...

I printed and coloured her a few times so that I could layer her up a little.

She is sitting on a belly band that goes around this serviette fold card that I have made using a tutorial I saw at Beccy's Place (thanks Beccy!)
The papers used are all 'Merry Magic' by Dovecraft, and the frame that Neva is sitting on is by cArt-Us.

I put some money inside my card, before sliding over the belly band, then because I wanted this card to hang on the tree, I added ribbon to one corner...

A different way to give money (or a gift card) this Christmas.

An assembly line

My husband needed 10 christmas cards asap!
So I printed out some Cute Santa images from DigiStamp Boutique (there's also a recent facebook freebie in there too), then I got my craft on, and so, a little over an hour later, I emerge with these...

To speed things up, I had to keep to a simple design, but then I think that the simple design showcases the images really well.
They were coloured simply with promarkers, and layered using a kraft shimmer paper and patterned papers from Dovecraft's back to basics vintage christmas paper stack.
The sentiments were computer generated and then punched out using my word window punch from Stampin Up.
I got an assembly line going, which is such a quick way to make cards. I did all the colouring first, then cut and layered my papers, punched out my greetings, and then finally, I glued everything into place one step at a time. Job done. Except now he wants ME to write them out because my handwriting is neater than his! well ok, but HE can lick the envelopes ;)

I'd like to enter these cards at:

The patterned paper is from Nordic Christmas collection (First Edition).
I've added extra mistletoe using my Marianne Creatables die.

Edwin and Hetty

A friend at work is getting married on the 28th December, and asked if i'd make a card for his fiancee, but wanted 'wife to be' on it as their wedding is so close.
Brief : she loves elephants!

I needed help in finding the right image, thankfully Lisa (thanks Lisa!) knew where i'd find such an image, so off I went to buy Christmas Edwin & Hetty set from DigiStamp Boutique. Perfect image me thinks.
Now last week I ordered myself some new grey promarkers, well they still haven't arrived *stamps foot* even though I should have received them by Wednesday. Not a happy bunny, RM should realise I have elephants to colour!
*sigh* so I had no option but to use the dregs of ink left in the promarkers I do have.
I've framed the image and sentiment with silver mirror card although it looks black in this photo.
The patterned paper is by Dovecraft (merry magic).
The mistletoe dies are by Marianne Creatables.
The sentiment is also from DSB, Christmas Greetings set 3.
'wife to be' has been die cut, using die-namics By the Letter dies.

There's a new release from Little Miss Muffet Stamps, that i'm sure you'll want to get your crafty hands on...

I just had to colour up this cutie straight away, this is Dexter Caroling.

He's a Pollycraft image, which are now available from Little Miss Muffet Stamps.
I've coloured Dexter with Promarkers.
The paper is from Carta Bella's 'Winter Fun' pack.

The papers are by Dovecraft (back to basics vintage christmas).
The leaves are punched from gold paper, I hope it's ok to extend them further up the side than the sketch given by Sketch Saturday.
'son' was die cut using my By the Letters dies, and I found a gold greeting in my stash which fit perfectly at the bottom.

Meowy Christmas

The image is taken from Happy Meow Year from The Paper Shelter. I was lucky enough to have won a whopping $20 prize earlier in the year, and this set was one that I chose, I'm using one of the cats from this set for my Sister's christmas card from my son.
My grey promarkers seriously need replacing, they are very dry, but on this occasion it helped with the fur a little bit!
The papers are both by Dovecraft, Back to Basics Modern Christmas, and Merry Magic.
The greeting is a Stamps Away stamp, and 'auntie' has been cut using my Die-namics By The Letter dies.

Happy Thanksgiving to my American friends :)

To celebrate, Barbara is offering a huge five day sale over at Little Miss Muffet Stamps.

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).

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.

This adorable character is Pudding Chester. If you love Chester, then you'll love this release ;)

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 :)

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 need a card for tomorrow"

This is what I was told last night while at work. Why do lads always leave it late to get cards eh? must be a genetic thing, cos girls are always (ok, mostly) well prepared for such events, especially if it's their mothers birthday.
This is what I have made, apparently his mom likes wine and flowers... well who doesn't?! ;)

This beautiful image is from DigiStamp Boutique, meet Alyssa. I've coloured her with promarkers then used a die from a Marianne Creatables set to frame her. Incidently, I received Alyssa as part of a challenge prize from Charisma Cardz, and the die set as part of a challenge prize from Crafty Catz :)
The papers are both from the same paper pad, MME's Lime Twist - Life of the party.
'mom' was cut using mint green glitter card and my Die-namics By The Letter dies, and the number 60 was stamped and coloured in the same colour as the dress, then framed using another of those Marianne dies.
The flowers were stamped using SU's One of a Kind stamp set, then punched out using the matching boho blossoms punch, before finishing each flower with a pale green crystal gem. The leaves are a woodware punch.
Hope his mom likes it, and hope she has a fab 60th birthday too.

I'm entering this card at:

Today is the day we start our latest challenge over at Little Miss Muffet challenges.
This time, we are asking you to be Spooktacular!
so anything halloweeny will be perfick :)

I've used the Bugaboo image Fancy Sunbonnet Witch, and coloured her with promarkers.
I have used navy glitter card as the main background piece, and layered this and the image onto a pale purple shimmer paper.
The purple multi paper across the card is a scrap left from Provocraft's 'tags, bags, boxes & more' paper pad (bought way back when I used to have a cricut machine a few years ago), I edged this paper top and bottom with the moon and stars design ribbon, which I have also had for years, it shouted out to me from the bottom of my ribbons tub, needing to be used on a card, so here it is.
The frog is a magnolia stamp.

LMM release day!

YAY!, it's time for another new release at Little Miss Muffet Stamps, I know that you all look forward to them as much as us Little Misses do ;)
This time is the turn of some delightful new Pollycraft images, and yes, sadly, Pollycraft is closing its doors next week, but you can still get your Pollycraft fix by shopping at LMM ;)
For my card this week, I've used Swings n' Slides Student...

The red spotty & ledger papers are a double sided sheet from MME's Stella & Rose 'Gertie' pad.
The tape measure paper is by Basic Grey from their 'life of the party' paper pad.
I embossed a piece of gold vellum with my swiss dots folder to place behind the image and the 'abc' die cut letters (die-namics, by the letter).

The layout for this card is from this weeks sketch challenge at the Sweet Stop.

It's a Doodle!

You can be as creative as you like for the new challenge at Little Miss Muffet, we want to see some doodling on your cards or projects please.
I decided to doodle paw prints around the edge of this card blank...

The image I've used (Plush Kitty) was a freebie a few months ago, and although it isn't available on its own in the store today, it is available as part of the image Trick or Kitty, so you can easily cut around Kitty if you wanted to, although I do have it on good authority that Kitty may be available on its own again one day.
And of course Trick or Kitty is just perfect for all your Halloween projects, so would be a great buy anyway.

The paper behind kitty is by First Edition, from their 'silent night' paper pad.
The sentiment is hand written.

You can see more 'doodletastic' work by checking out what the other Little Misses have done HERE ;)

The party is still going on

Saturday's are now Super Saturday's at Little Miss Muffet and this week we want to remind you of the fab Graffiti Party, where you will find inspiration, discounts and freebies, as well as entering the challenge to be in with a chance to win yourself some graffiti and urban prizes from both LMM and MiC.
You have until October 20th to enter.
Barbara has designed some brilliant extra graffiti images, one of which is today's freebie...
Graffiti Krew Writer...

I also used Graffiti background swipe, Graffiti background drip, and 'brickworks' from Make it Crafty's Urban Streets collection.
I coloured the images with promarkers and cut out the scene to give it a torn look. I coloured Krew Writer again and added some foam pads to the back to lift it slightly from the background, then used more foam pads to raise the scene from the kraft card blank.
The only thing I added myself was writing HB2U on the blue background swipe.
These images are so much fun to colour, if you think it's not your bag, you may surprise yourself, step out of your comfort zone and give them a try, who knows where your imagination will take you once you start creating. 
You can find all the LMM graffiti images HERE

Hope to see you at the party! 

I'd like to enter this card at:
Inky Impressions - blue as the main colour
Cute Card Thursday - signs of distress
