Sunshine and Butterflies


Hello everyone!  It is new release time at LITTLE MISS MUFFET STAMPS.  I was lucky enough to be asked to join the DT and now I get to officially play along with the fabulous team.  Thank you Faye!

The new release is full of the sweetest images - lots for Easter and other occassions.  Visit the LITTLE MISS MUFFET Blog to see all the other wonderful creations from the team.
Julie E_Claudia's Butterflies

I decided to ink up Claudia's Butterflies.  It is not warm outside yet, so at least I could think of warmth while coloring this cutie. Pairing up the image with lots of sunny yellow patterned paper from Echo Park added even more warmth.

Be sure to join us on the FACEBOOK FAN PAGE.  Barbara has promised a FREEBIE when we reach 200 followers, so tell your friends too!!

Winter Vaca

Your Next Stamp Fun Friday Time!

This month's theme is vacation - fun in the sun or the snow!

Quite honestly, if I was planning a vacation right now I would be heading for the sun, but Skating Fun Fhiona is happy in the snow and smiling away on my winter vacation card.  There are lots of YNS products on my card... the snowflakes are from the Whatnots Season One die set, the pink mat is actually the polaroid die from the new Insta Love Polaroid Die Set, the sentiment is from Rosalie and it is placed on a fishtail banner.

Sweet and Simple Valentine

I am sharing a sweet little ole simple card with you today in celebration of Valentine's Day.

I was inspired by all the wonderful creations I have seen lately with images colored on kraft.  My card features one of the cuties from YNS' Critter 2 set and a sentiment from MFT combined with MME patterned paper.
My card is for the Outlawz CAS Valentine challenge.

Have a SWEET day!

Something New

Today I am playing along with Little Miss Muffet Challenge 54, which is a sketch.
The image is Celeste Amberglow Owl Always Love You.  Just enough sweetness with the hearts to use this one for Valentine's Day.    Now on to the new. The shirt, socks, pink hearts and skin were colored using my newly purchased Spectrum Noir markers that I picked up at I Heart Papers - thanks Alyssa for enabling me and you didn't even have to make a thing!  The markers are super affordable at less than $2 each.  If you need to expand your marker collection I recommend giving the markers a try. 
My card is also for the Outlawz Copic challenge - Valentines!
Have a wonderful day!

Craving Mint?

It's time for Your Next Stamp Tasty Tuesday!

What is Tasty Tuesday? It is finding papercrafting inspiration using pictures of food. One picture will provide inspiration for the whole month and each week different members of the design team will share projects.

PLUS, if you play along you will have the chance to win a $10 gift certificate to the YNS store. Head on over to the YNS blog for all the details.

February's inspiration photo is a minty one...
Now on to the card that was inspired by this pic...

 I am playing along with SCS CAS challenge 205, which is to case one of Gail's cards.  I cased this one Inlaid Polka Dots.  I was drawn in by the simplicity of the sketch and the texture.  I stamped my own patterned paper, then embossed.

Snow Fun

Happy February 1st!  Christmas is 326 days away.  Are you ready?
Last year I did not have to do any last minute Christmas crafting because I crafted all year long with Christmas Stampin' All Year Long.  Are you going to join us this year???
Our first challenge of the year is Anything Goes!

Happy Snow Day from Your Next Stamp is featured on my card.  With Anything Goes I used my faves and if I get to choose, then you know there will be a penguin and blue on my card!  The sentiment is popped up with the YNS Fishtail Banner Dies and the snowflake is from the YNS Season One Whatnots Die set.

Be sure to stop by the Christmas Stampin' All Year Long blog for all the challenge details.  You have until Wednesday, February 6th to play along.
