Swinging Time With Flowers

May Flowers is the theme this time round at Little Miss Muffet Challenges so I used the TH Tattered Florals die then added my own handmade rose … made a little bow with the left over material. Decisions decisions, which image to use, but Riley won out in the end.

We have a new member joining our team this week so please hop on over to say hi to JOEY also Barbara has some exciting things happening soon.


April Showers At LMMC

This week has certainly seen it’s fair share of April showers but not complaining because the gardens and farmers definitely need it so Little Miss Muffet’s new fortnightly challenge is very appropriate


We would love to see all your fabulous creations with the above theme in mind … my card is very easy and simple to make, inked the cutie Paprika with Versamark and stamped onto black cardstock then added white embossing powder, did the same with the sentiment, added a Prim Poppy diecut (one of the new Memory Box dies I bought at Ally Pally on Saturday) plus a ribbon and a few little glass teardrops, easy as I said but very effective.

We have another new teamie joining us this week so please hop on over and give Mary a very warm welcome.


LMM Now In Rubber

Had a fantastic time at the craft show in Alexandra Palace at the weekend met up with lots of friends that I haven’t seen for ages but also met a few fantastic ladies that I knew only from crafting blogland … wahoo now I can put voices and faces to blogs … yehhhhh.

The girls and I left Ireland at 6.45 Friday morning, but the whirlwind didn’t start until Saturday morning, with literally boats, trains, tubes and lastly buses to get us to Ally Pally. Just can’t begin to describe the fun we had (won’t mention money in case hubby is looking).

This little card was supposed to be posted before I went … oops … anyway here she is now it is my inspirational piece for Little Miss Muffet Stamps.
Barbara has had lots of her fave images made into rubber which is great news for me because I just love stamping plus she sent me this adorable beauty called Paprika to play around with, you can buy her here.


Spring Time

I am a hopeless romantic and if someone could wave a magic wand to transport me back in time it would be the Victorian era of Crinoline Dresses and Southern Belles. … Gone With The Wind is my all time classic fave movie. Did you know the term Southern first came from Scotland in around 1470 and Belle is French (the feminine form of beau derived from a Latin word bellus meaning pretty ).

I was lucky enough to go to Texas a few years back and whilst there we flew to Louisiana loved every minute of it, got to go on a paddle steamer along the Mississippi river … just fabulous … (Andrew would love to be writing this post because he would tell you about by huge faux pas whilst walking along Bourbon Street … not going to happen lol). Did you know that Louisiana became a state in 1800 and it was Napoleon who sold it to the United States?

Dreaming over back to the Little Miss Muffett Challenge which is SPRING COLOURS – This gorgeous image of La Promenade au Jardin is soooo pretty … what I would give to get into a dress like that today!!! Used a bit of everything as usual Copics, Pro-Markers and watercolour pencils this time round, the papers are more from my stash which I can’t remember the name of … sorry.

Pop on over and see what the DT’s have created every card is a piece of art.

I Have My Eye On You

Morning everyone … not so sunny today but still dry and warm …
Here is my mid challenge inspiration post for Little Miss Muffet Stamps and as soon as I saw this fun image of Grandpa Grumps he was on my to do list.
So here he is on a tag which then slots into the little book I made … coloured Grumps with Distress Inks then I threw water over the poor little chap, also masked him off … which he didn’t like because he couldn’t see what I was doing next … which was stamping all over his body.

Grandpa Grumps is a digi stamp but I have combined him with lots of wooden and acrylic stamps just to show how you can mix and match them.

Now my mate Pam thought she didn’t like these type of images … scary she called them … so I made this just for her … also as a little thank you for the crafting goodies she bought me. Pammy loved it and she has certainly changed her mind about these type of images, she now realises that they can look fun and dare I say cute looking.


Silhouette Waterfall Card

A SILHOUETTE drawing means an outline that appears dark against a light background
Exciting ehh well this is what we would love to see you creating on your project at Little Miss Muffet Challenges this fortnight.

As you know last week Barbara released all her digital images as silhouettes also for her challenges you don’t have to use a Little Miss Muffet image but how cute is this little guy below and Barbara is offering him as a freebie until 31st March 2012 … wahoooo!!!! Hurry up girls no time to waste go get it 😀 It says it is a bunny but me thinks you could have it as a puppy dog!!! If you would like a bit more inspiration then please check out all the creations from my amazing sisters here.

I have made a little waterfall card for my DT submission, purely and simply to show you that it doesn’t have to be a black silhouette you can change the colours from black to whatever you want. This waterfall card meant I can have three silhouettes in different colours. I still get a kick out of pulling the tab at the bottom of the card and everything starts cascading, hope you enjoy.

Shopping With Little Miss Muffet

Who doesn’t love shopping and the NEW Little Miss Muffet image Eleanor May Hatter has just finished her little trip lol.
Covered a card with acetate this time round but before I attached to the card I cut the acetate on the diagonal. Next a strip of punched paper was added, a die cut and flower. For the inside to look as pretty as the outside it is best to use double sided paper. Coloured with Pro-Markers and Copics but also stamped onto her hat, bags and the boots, you can just see the hint of a little shine which I did with a Sakura glaze pen

Paper pad used is – My Mind’s Eye – Honey Cake
Stamps – Art Impressions – Vine and Hobby Art – Ink Splat
Punch – ek Success Scandinavian Lace Chain
Flower – Prima

Romance Is In The Air Today

29th February 2012 … Leap Year Girlies and today’s the day when you can propose to the man of your dreams!!!

Wonder who Elisabeth Louise Hatter will be asking for their hand in marriage???
All the LMM teemies have been showcasing lots of inspiration in the month of February and today I am showing the inside and the back of a card which was posted earlier.

Everything has been thrown into this one because it is being sent to a very special and amazing girl… AMBER. She absolutely adores stamping, colouring and of course fashion so this card has everything that any girlie would love.

Today is also reveal time for Three Companies Team Up

I have already shown the front of the card but have put it in again in case you didn’t see it first time round … if you didn’t where were you 😆

FSC Inspiration Meets LMMS Inspiration

Not often this happens but today I have two cards to show you one is for Fashionable Stamping Challenges and the other is for Little Miss Muffet Stamps. First up is my LMM card which is still following the Ooh La La Paris theme until the end of this month and for this I have used several of Barbara’s digi images not only that check out her new line which are in RUBBER … yep you heard right girls she is into rubber 😯 … no silly not Barbara herself 😀 on that note let’s get back to the card 😎 How pleased am I because as you know stamping is my first love … eh apart from Andrew … eh the grandchildren, my son, Penny, Byron!!!!

These 4 little ladies are all sooo pretty just look for everyone of them here … go on you know you want to.
My card has been stitched around the edge also stitched the lace but when you open the flap it reveals a sentiment and another little paper pieced hat. What do you do when you want to display lots of stamping … that’s easy just throw it all into the mix that’s exactly what I did for the inside … lots of stamping inspiration, but you will have to come back on Wednesday because LMMS has another inspiration day for you and all will be revealed then!! Just a little heads up here, even though I have done lots of stamping there is not a torn, distressed or inked up edge anywhere …

Nearly forgot to say don’t forget to visit Three Companies Team Up because the talent displayed from all the different Design Teams is mega mind blowing.

Now onto my Fashionable Stamping card … utterly and totally different …that’s me just can’t stick to any particular medium of craftingmainly pretty and cute … love absolutely everything I can get my hands on to experiment with … lots of disasters but you have to try 😥

Ellie picked the theme this week for FSC and she wanted to see everyone’s take on Make It For A Child. My card has been stamped, embossed with white then brayered over with TH Victorian Velvet. Cut the finished piece with a nestie then layered back up again.

Shhhhh don’t tell the Fashionettes this but she was my piece for last fortnights challenge and I just didn’t have time to post … whoops 😳 but she fits perfectly into this fortnights challenge hooray!!

Now all you need to do is pop on over to the FSC blog and leave lots of love for my other fabulous teemies … oh while you’re there you might as well enter your creation as well tee hee.

Emily Rose Hatter

Inspiration time for the new Challenge at Little Miss Muffet which is … FANCY or LACY

At the moment I am so addicted to making different shaped cards with the Tim Holtz On The Edge Die Distressed Doily which brought me to this gatefold which closes with some beautiful lace from my stash. Plus I stamped and fussy cut elements from the new Whimsy Stamps then dry embossed the die cut edges. When opened you can see a picture I have created with images from Little Miss Muffet Stampscalled Emily Rose Hatter also used images and chip board from Make It Crafty which has been painted with a sage coloured acrylic paint.

We are still following the Ooh la la Paris feeling for the month of February so if you would like even more inspiration jump ahead to see Three Companies Team Up Paris Challenge and also my teamies creations at LMMC.
