Polka Dot Pals Kyree

Welcome to a new Anything Goes challenge at Little Miss Muffet Challenges.  For this week, I created a summer card using Polka Dot Pals Kyree.  However, she's not available in the store but you don't want to miss out on these details to get her... she's free!


Little Miss Muffet Stamps is being featured in this month's issue of Simply Cards and Papercraft Magazine (issue 166).  You get to play with this Polka Dot Pal along with some coordinating images that are in this issue.  


The face was added with a Polka Dot Pals Add-on Face or you can color your own or leave it blank.  Then, since you'll love coloring her, you'll want to grab some more Polka Dot Pals in the LMMS store.  Of course!


Here are the Copic colors I used on

Edward the First

This is my first crochet project which was from the book Edward's Crochet Imaginarium by Kerry Lord.  It's such a fun book with flip pages to help choose the heads, arms and legs. The instructions were easy enough to figure out after a lesson from my sister first. I'm not sure crochet is my thing yet but I'm willing to give it another try.

Trees Silhouette

I'm getting ready for some snowing thoughts so I used the new Trees Silhouette from DoveArt Studios that was recently released and created my own snowy scene. The stamp was colored with the blues then I went back over the image with a white gel pen.  Lastly, there was some sparkle spray that I tried out but it created blobs so I try to ignore those.


These are the Copic markers that I used on Trees Silhouette...

Holiday Treats

There is a Surprise Holiday Release from DoveArt Studios coming out. You'll find them now available in the store at CCDesigns and for my project I used Holiday Treats

I didn't use any decorative paper this time around since the image was going to be colorful enough that I wanted it to stand out the most.  The black paper was splashed with a little white paint that was watered down.  Then the cheesecloth was added to help it feel more "homemade" from the kitchen.



If you would love to see more creations of the wonderful new release, these other DT members rocked it and will be posting their creations this week also:

Plus you'll find these and more DoveArt inspiration over on the DoveArt Studios blog.

Polka Dot Pals Sally

Here's a fun project that's been in the making for quiet some time.  Two years ago near Valentines I found a Hallmark card that was absolutely perfect.  It was one of the motion and sound cards and when it was opened, there was a hamster bouncing on a hip-hop ball.  I had to buy it just so I could use it with Polka Dot Pals Sally... also on her hip-hop ball.



There's loads of pictures in this post plus a little video at the end too.  Lot's of eye-candy!  The sentiment was created using Chipboard Embellishments from Make it Crafty, colored with a black Copic marker and then some Sparkles glitter glue was added on top.




Polka Dot Pals Sally was colored with Prismacolor Pencils and Copic markers.  The hair, clothes, and polka dots are with the pencils then I did the skin and ball with the markers.  I did this mainly because I wasn't near my pencils but also because I wanted a soft looking skin.


The card opens from the left and just the grass part opens so the image can be seen when open or closed. The Hallmark card was cut apart and I kept the components together.  I then took two layers of cardboard and cut a center hole just large enough for the innards.  Here's what it looks like after I wrapped black cardstock around the back and over the edges.


I also salvaged the pink bouncing marks from the Hallmark card and used them on the inside of the card.  Here's what the card looks like when it's open.


Are you ready for the video?  This is just five seconds on Polka Dot Pals Sally bouncing on her ball with mad-giggle sounds. It's actually really funny to listen to and a lovely surprise when it's opened.  Bounce!
