LMMS: Neva Jingle all the way

Good morning!

I hope you're all in good spirits. Today I have a jolly little card I've created with non-traditional Christmas colors. I used a rubber stamp and a clear stamp set from Little Miss Muffet Stamps. This rubber stamp is called Polka Dot Pals Neva and the clear stamp set is called Polka Dot Pals Add-on Faces
             Polka Dot Pals Add-on Faces              

Some of the Copic markers I used:
RV52, RV55, RV34
YG05, YG09, G16
BG45, BG49, BG78

Y08 and Y35
Y17, R29 and R24

Jingle bells
Y08, Y35 and a tiny bit of Y26

The die is from 
called Merry Christmas Ribbon (Elites)

The paper if from Doodlebug Design and it's called 
Christmas Town
The stars which are from the Doodlebug Design Chit Chat
also from Christmas Town and I added glossy accents for extra dimension.

That is all for now.

LMMS: Chrissie Let It Snow

Hello Crafty Friends!

I hope you've been having a lovely day/evening. It's almost that time again... Christmas time and some of us (me actually) don't have enough Christmas cards created! Yikes! Every year I grab a new Christmas cardstock or paperpad because I think I'll be working on Christmas cards all year long and then I don't get to make as many as I want. Luckily it's still November and have a chance to make cards for a few family members, some teachers and some of my crafty friends- I hope!

On to my card....
I started with a rubber stamp Polka Dot Pals Chrissie from
Little Miss Muffet Stamps and I also used Polka Dot Pals Add-on Faces clear stamp set
I had lots of fun coloring her up on Kraft colored cardstock- to me it gives her
a slight vintage look.
I colored her up with Copic markers and then went in with a few stores of
Polychromos colored pencils.

Some of the Copic colors I used were 
R17, R46, R59
Y15, Y35, Y23, Y26, Y28, 
W9, W7, W5
YG63, G94
W3, W1
then I laid a little color pencil on top for lighting
Uni-ball Signo White Angelic for the snow and eye lights. 

For the colored layered background I used a die from
My Creative Time and the die for Let It Snow sentiment
is a die from Our Daily Bread Designs.

Here's a close-up
I really enjoyed making this card. 
I think I will make more in different colors- at least to practice.
I've been playing along with 
#thedailymarker30day coloring challenge and really enjoying it
especially with this card- I finished all of the coloring in one day.

Don't forget that there are Anything Goes challenges over at
There's also a sale going on at the shop various stamps

LMMS: Starbrite bookmark

Hello Crafty Friends,

Today I have a project for the new challenge over at Little Miss Muffet Stamps, I created a bookmark for my littlest one. Daenerys, will be 6 years next week and she's having so much fun learning and reading new words. It may be a while for her to read chapter books but she's extremely advanced and smart that I'm sure she'll be wanting more bookmarks made to read between school books and personal books. For the bookmark I used Polka Dot Pals Starbright. I colored her up with Copic markers and the blue part of the sky closest to her body is with Copic markers as well. The rest of the background was done with Distress Inks. The stars and dots were done with Sakura Stardust Gellyroll and the white stars were done with Uni-ball Sign White Angelic. 

I wanted to make her clothing very girly and colorful.
Luckily I had a twine/tassel with similar colors. I was looking
for my white and gold and saw this colorful twine and thought it would 
perfect for this bookmark.

Here's a close-up so  you can see a few of the spots with Sakura Gellyroll 
Stardust pen- it does look a little weird on the phone but in person
it looks very sparkly and more uniformed. 

I think what took the longest to color 
was the hair and ruffles. It was actually pretty pretty quick and easy to make.
My older daughter's friends are already asking for bookmarks from the last time I made her 
some bookmarks. 

That is all for now.
