Little Miss Muffet - Super Saturday

Good morning!  Happy Saturday!  For some of you, your day is underway already.  For me, I hope I am still sleeping when this posts!  Those that have been following our Friday Freebie and Sunday Spotlight features on the Little Miss Muffet blog may be a bit perplexed by the new title.  Well, we've made an exciting change!  We are going to combine those two features into one Super Saturday post that's packed with a freebie, special pricing on a spotlighted stamp, and lots of inspiration from the DT for both!  Doesn't that sound like fun?  This is our first week for the new format, so you'll definitely want to check it out!

So, to get started, the freebie for this week is Silverstar, an adorable unicorn from artist, Simply Sophia.

Here is what I did with Silverstar:


My card base and mats are SU Strawberry Slush and the patterned paper is from the Prima Fairy Flora 6x6 pad.  I printed the cute Silverstar on MiC Blending Card and colored him with my Copics.  I added some Star Dust Stickles to his horn.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  It is from the Life is Short Digi Word Art set in Paulette's store here.  Some pretty lace, a satin bow and a few shimmery flowers from my stash finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the image:


I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Seems a Little Sketchy #44 (sketch below turned to vertical)
Tammy's Scrapin' Corner #73 (use a digi)

Here is the sketch:

Next up is our spotlighted stamp, Cora Agnes Hatter.  She is available at a reduced price today over in the LMM shop.


I created a circle easel card using my Spellbinders Grand and Standard Scalloped and Classic Circle Nestabilities.  The cardstock is SU Primrose Petals and the patterned paper is from the Pebbles Sunny Side collection.  Cora Agnes is colored with my Copics. I added lots of Stickles to her hat and shoes and dress band for added sparkle.  I added some pearl accents to the hanging tie on her hat with my Viva Decor Ice White Pearl Pen.   The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  It's hard to see on this angle, but it says "It's your day to SHINE...Happy Birthday".  A satin bow and a few more pearl accents finished my shaped card.

Here is a close-up of the image:


I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Stampin' For The Weekend (shape it up)
Cute Card Thursday #280 (anything goes)
Tuesday Throwdown #158 (birthday party)

Phew!  Sorry for the long post!  Be sure to visit the Little Miss Muffet Challenge blog and grab your freebie, order your cute stamp and check out the fabulous creations from the rest of the DT!  Don't forget that we also have a fun challenge underway until Tuesday, August 13.  The theme is "away with the fairies".  All the details are on the blog.

Have a wonderful day and I'll see you soon!
