Little Miss Muffet - Welcoming 2019!

It's the last day of 2018 and to celebrate I've used Polka Dot Pals Wyleen from Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  I've used Promarkers to colour plus glitter glue here and there.


The paper is from my stash - part of the rather large collection of digital papers that I've printed over the years and now need to use up!  The snowflakes are all die cuts and I've added half pearls to their centres and dotted a line of liquid pearls around the edge of the card.

Little Miss Muffet - Wrapping 2018 up

We are wrapping the year up at Little Miss Muffet Stamps!  And here is a card I made as part of an order I received.

I've used Polka Dot Pals Noeleen with Junior Hatter Add-on Faces Set A - the faces work with both Polka Dot Pals and Junior Hatters - you just need to be careful when lining them up!  I've used Promarkers for colouring plus Christmas scene dies from my stash.


I've also used some satin red ribbon from my stash along with bakers twine to tie the ice skate charm to the bow.  I printed the sentiment on my computer.

Good luck with the challenge!  I'd like to enter the following:

Rub-A-Dub-Dub in the Christmas Tub

Daring Card Makers - Glitter

Time for a new Daring Card Makers challenge and the theme this week is

Glitter

I've used Polkadoodles Fancy Intricate Bauble die - I've cut it twice - once from white glitter card and once from red glitter card - the photo really does not show the glitter, but it really is glittery!  I've layered the bauble onto a Fanciful Circles nested die also from Polkadoodles.


The ribbons are from my stash.  Good luck with the challenge!  I'd like to enter the following:

ABC Christmas Challenge:  V is for Very Quick

Colour Crazy Challenge - week 43 - Sponsored by Polkadoodles

It's Friday so time for a new Colour Crazy Challenge!  This week we are sponsored by Polkadoodles and the theme, as always is

Anything Goes

I've used one of the Stampin' Unicorn clear acrylic stamp sets to create my card and coloured it with Promarkers and a little glitter.  I've added a dotted line of liquid pearls around the edge of the card and some half pearls and embroidery thread from my stash.


Good luck with the challenge!  I'd like to enter the following:
