Another Dare 2B Artzy post

Hi friends!!!
I am back with another card using Dare 2B Artzy!

Stop on over to the Dare 2B Artzy blog to check out my 2nd card Watercolor Love.

I tried something a little different for me on this one.

I started by “stamping” a little bit of my Distress Oxides onto a crafting mat. Then, taking a water brush I grabbed some of the ink and applied it to my watercolor cardstock.
And then, I stamped the image and sentiment on top of that once the oxide color was dry. I backed the white cardstock with some great designer paper and applied it to the card base. Then applied some sequins.
Another quick and fun card with the Love is in the Air stamp set!

Thanks for stopping by today!



Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge - Anything Goes 

Monday, September 16, 2019

Hello dear crafty friends!!!

It has been quite some time since I last posted.
So let me catch you up :) 

I was on 2 design teams - Penny's Paper Craft Challenge and Little Miss Muffet. 
Between work and other stuff I decided to resign my "position" on the Penny's team. Then
 shortly after the beginning of 2019 - Barbara @ Little Miss Muffet decided to take a sabbatical, thus leave me with no design team work at all. 

Then in March - my oldest cat Abby became sick. She had been my buddy for 14years. She was actually a Christmas present from my son & husband 15yrs prior. We took her to the vet and it was not a good visit. Thus - we had to leave there to put her in the hospital to see if there was anything they could do for her there. Then the very next day March 23rd - we had to let her go. 

She was my "crafting buddy" for the last 12 years - always wanting to be in my crafting room when ever I was in there. I would always have to make sure not to step on her, because she was always close by.  So I think I kind of fell into a bit of a crafting depression if you will. Like - why should I be crafty - no design team work - no Abby to be by my side to keep me company.

Then summer came and we all know how busy summer can be. Then a wonderful friend said hey - do you want to design a couple of cards for the Dare 2 Be Artzy blog and I thought why not.
So here we are!!!

This is my first card 

I just wanted a quick CAS card for a "Hi" or "How are You".
Started making this CAS card by stamping directly onto my kraft cardstock base. Then using colored pencils, carefully colored in the image and added a sentiment. Sweet, simple and no fuss :)

Hope you like it !!

Have a great day!  I’ll be sharing another card with this stamp set next Sunday!

I have had a rough couple of weeks. I have been sick with nasty cough for about over 2 weeks. And I think I might finally be getting better. And this past Saturday - we had to put down our eldest cat Abby as she had some major health issues come up. We got her from the Humane Society approx 17 yrs ago. She was about 10 weeks and the tiniest little thing :) She's been my baby girl all these years and my craft room buddy. I miss her deeply.   

So please make sure to check back later in the week for my card using these stamps!! I can't wait to get back into the swing of things again.

Thanks for stopping by!

Sad news at LMMS

This message is from Barbara (from her Facebook post)
It's been a fantastic eight years and every minute has been an adventure. However, it looks like I'm past due for a well-earned sabbatical and I'm going to take it. As the artist and owner behind Little Miss Muffet Stamps, I'm going to be on hiatus for an extended time and re-center. I would like give a heartfelt thank you to all my Design Team members and customers for all the support, their inspiration and bringing my images to life. You're all amazing!
You'll see some rubber stamps are on sale right now. However, I'd recommend you start grabbing your favorites now before the inventory is gone. If you want me to hold an order and combine shipping, just add a note on the check-out page and I can do that for you.

And on that note - 
Clearance Sale at Little Miss Muffet Stamps

I hope to be posting cards with some of those new pre-order stamps soon!

I LOVE the Polka Dot Pals and that is why I started following and then being luck enough to design for LMMS. There are a few left in rubber available on the site. Here is a 'flashback' to a card using one of the PDP I LOVE so much :)

Happy 2019!!!!!

Happy 1st Monday of 2019 :)
I hope this finds everyone well!! I have been on a hiatus the last couple of weeks.
My last post was on Dec 20 and I decided to take a little 'rest' for the rest of the year.
With the holidays, my husband having surgery on his hand and us both being sick I needed a little break.
But now I am back and I thought my 1st post of the new year should be to visit my favorite card of 2018!
And here it is!!!!

This was such a fun image to create with. I had the image colored before I even began to think about my card layout. Then I came across this paper and I think it went perfectly with my colored image.
We have had such a weird winter here in the northwest. Not much snow, and then when we do get some - it warms up and melts. Right now it's 38 and raining! I actually can't wait for the day when the grandkids can make snow angels just like in this image:) It's so much fun playing the snow!!
Well - stayed tuned later in the week for my post form Little Miss Muffet Stamps!
Until then - happy crafting!!!!
