Colorful Birthday Balloons Card (LMMS Challenge #159)


Hi everyone! :o)


It's time for a new challenge at Little Miss Muffet Stamps Challenge Blog. It's #159, Anything Goes Challenge.

For this challenge I made this CAS (clean and simple), Colorful Birthday Balloons Card. :o)


I made this card for my friend's son who will celebrate 3rd birthday next week. :o)

To make this card I used an adorable LMM's Forgotten Scraps 'Celebrate Balloons' rubber stamp. :o)

I stamped the image on a Kraft paper panel and colored it with colored pencils. I colored a shade around the image with a white pencil.

I glued the panel on a foam sheet rectangle and glued it on a top folded white card base. As a finishing touch I drew stitches and highlighted the shade with white gel pen.


Card dimensions: 98 mm x 130 mm (3 7/8" x 5 1/8")

  • LMM's Forgotten Scraps 'Celebrate Balloons' rubber stamp

    Hand Lettering #5: Personalized Birthday Magnets

    Hello everyone!!! :o)

    Today I want to share with you two hand lettered personalized birthday magnets I made.


    First I made yellow one for my friend Danijela.



    When my boyfriend saw it, he asked for a same magnet, but in blue, for his friend. :o)



    How I made magnets...

    I cut 2" diameter circle bases from a Canson XL Mixed Media Paper.

    I stamped adorable Pisces from Mama Elephant 'Cosmic Stars' stamp set on circle bases, hand lettered word Pisces in block letter handwriting style and friends' birthdays with Roman numerals. I wrote them on different days, but I went with same lettering style on both so I'm sharing them together. :o)



    I prepared various hand lettered samples during my personal challenge Celebrating 30 Days of Pisces 2017 to color during a 7th 30 Day Coloring Challenge by Kathy Racoosin of The Daily Marker. These two also.

    I colored both circles in watercolor technique, using Distress Inks, and left them dry on air.

    A friend gave me bunch of magnet sheets last year to make my own magnets. I cut magnet circles with large scissors and glued them together with colored circles with universal UHU glue. I pressed magnets with a 32 cm x 32 cm, 1 cm thick glass plate and left them pressed for an hour. At this point my magnets were finished.

    I needed that something something as a final touch on the yellow one. I coated yellow Pisces with Clear Wink of Stella. Love the shimmer and my friend too!!! :o)


    Dimensions: d = 51 mm (d = 2")
    List of supplies:
    • Mama Elephant 'Cosmic Stars' stamp set
    • Canson XL Mixed Media Paper, 300 g
    • Ranger's Arcihval Ink (Jet Black)

    Celebrating 30 Days of Pisces 2017, Part 3

    Hello everyone!!! :o)

    Yesterday a Pisces period ended and also my 3rd annual personal challenge, Celebrating 30 Days of Pisces. Goals of my challenges are to improve my skills.

    The challenge took time in the Pisces Period, from February 18th, 12:31 PM until March 20th 11:29 AM (CEST, UTC +2Dubrovnik, Croatia).

    This year I challenged myself to practice hand lettering every day in the Pisces periodGoals of the challenge were to improve my hand lettering skills, to encourage myself to hand letter on my projects and to continue practicing after the challenge ends. More details about this year's challenge in an Intro post.

    I'm so happy that I completed one more personal challenge. I managed to practice my hand lettering every day, I accomplished my goals and had a lot of fun. :o)


    Today I'm sharing with you Part 3 (last one) of my hand lettered uncolored/unfinished samples that I made (wrote) from March 11th until March 20th (10 days). If you missed first two previews or you want to see them again, just follow these links: Part 1 and Part 2.

    I focused on hand lettering and not coloring and finishing projects. I decided they will be my preparation for an ongoing 7th 30 Day Coloring Challenge by Kathy Racoosin of The Daily Marker, which started on March 1st. For more info, jump to Kathy's blog.

    I will be coloring all my samples during Kathy's current challenge. Well, that's my plan. :o) After I color my samples and make something out of them, I'll be sharing them here on my blog in separate posts with detailed description. I'll update this post and link photos in this post to finished project posts.

    Here is a day by day preview. :o)
    (Click on the photo and it will take you to the finished project post. If there is no link, my project is not finished and published yet.)












    I hope you enjoyed my today's hand lettered samples preview. :o)

    Thank you for stopping by and your kind feedback. Enjoy and smile! :o)
