Exciting News + Little Miss Muffet DT Post!

Hi everyone! I have some exciting news to share with you all today! The super talented Barbara from Little Miss Muffet Stamps has asked me to join her Design Team! WOOHOO!!! These stamps are super gorgeous, if you haven't checked them out already then you need to head over here and grab some right now! Little Miss Muffet also have a challenge blog with fortnightly challenges and great prizes. You can use any image in the challenges but you can enter anything goes if you are using a LMM stamp. Hope to see you playing along :)


The theme this week for the challenge is Easel, Shaped, or Step Cards. I chose to do a centre step card (my first one so be kind!). I used a fantastic tutorial over at Split Coast Stampers to learn how to make it. The image that I used is the gorgeous Linda Lee Hatter - how cute is she?! :D


I used some beautiful papers from My Mind's Eye, and I distressed all of the edges by crumpling the paper and adding Tim Holtz Distress Ink Vintage Photo. I added some gorgeous flowers and a metal corner from Wild Orchid Crafts, and some kraft butterflies using the Martha Stewart 3 in 1 Butterfly punch.



I coloured Linda Lee using copic markers. Here are the colours that I used:

Skin: E50, E53, E00, E11, R11
Hair: E31, E35, E37
Dress and Hatband: R11, R20, R22, R05
Hat: G000, G00, B



Don't forget to stop by the Little Miss Muffet Challenge Blog to play along this week! I can't wait to see all of your beautiful creations :)

Challenges that I am entering with this card:

Challenge Up Your Life - Front Panel Step Card
Hooked on Crafts - More than One Fold
Craft Room Challenge - Vintage (I used some lovely shabby chic look papers and colour scheme, and distressed all of the papers to have a vintage look :)
Thanks for stopping by!
