Happy Birthday card continued...

Thanks for posting the birthday card...and all the crooked letters! I was trying to place the "birthday" the way they had it on the sticker sheet and then the spacing got messed up and it started slanting downward. And not so easy to stick die cut letters or letter stickers on nicely either, I think I'm cock-eyed. I took some photos of the card before it was even finished since it took forever to get my son to sign it, but then I was thinking it looked kind of messed up to post. I guess I should have shown Eva how the card unfolds, but it was hastily shoved into an envelope, which by the way I made with the Martha Stewart scoreboard since I hadn't heard of it until Eva told me about it, and then when Michael's had a 50% off coupon, I figured that was a pretty good deal. But we didn't even address the envelope or seal it...I'm such a bad card giver. Although I was pretty happy I even finished it in time since it took me a couple days to decorate it. And by the last page, the best I could do was letter stickers.

Anyhow, it's called a "neverending" card and I saw it here. So I went to the youtube link here, which shows how to make the card and how it keeps folding/unfolding. Except they gave the measurements in metric units, so I just picked 6 inches by 6 inches with 1.5 inches for the score lines.

So the 3rd and 4th pages look like this if you flip the 2 and the birthday cake up/down, then open the green panels horizontally...


I mostly used Doodlebug products that I've been hoarding...the patterned paper, matching sticker sheet and a glitter letter set. Plus a birthday stamp set for the "happy" word background.
I am so bad about actually getting crafting stuff done, takes me forever just to make 1 thing...hopefully I can make something soon with "I love Stamps" Anya, thanks Eva!

no BUTTS about it

Hello!  Today I have a series of cards to share which I think are super cute and funny too.  I love Birdie Brown's stamp sets available at MFT and the cards today uses the behind images of the cat, dog & pig found in Cool Cat, Lucky Dog and Hog Heaven. 

I had a couple of ideas for the design of this card but I felt the sentiment called for multiple images of the animal's behind.  I just couldn't let there be one image and the sentiment have plural Butts.  I know that is weird of me but things like that drive me a little crazy.  I won't get into how people misuse plural and possessive s though.  That really drives me crazy.  Anyway, so then I thought this would be a cute way to stamp multiple images over the card.  I created the sentiment on the front using an alphabet set from Lawn Fawn.

This is the sentiment on the inside which comes in the Cool Cat stamp set.

Here is the dog version.  These cards took a lot of time to color!

Papertrey November Blog Hop Challenge

Hi!  It's been a while since I participated in one of PTI's blog hop challenges.  But I had to play along this month.  Not only did I place an order on release night but I also got my goodies in about a week!  So I had some time to play around with my new stamps and dies.  Hehe.  Below is the inspiration photo.

I love the Christmas theme and the colors too so I went with that.

When I saw the newly released penguin stamp and die, I had to get them.  So cute!!  I thought this penguin would make a cute spinner card too.  Similar to the froggy one I made HERE.  I also used PTI's In the Meadow dies.  I used the die itself and my hobby blade to cut along the curved edge to create the little cut out for the penguin to slide.  I did that twice leaving a quarter inch space between them.

I layered the penguin with PTI's coasters.

I added a tiny bell to his hat.

He slides down.  The jingle all the way sentiment is from Tiny Treats Xmas.  Just traced the space with a pencil and curv…

I wheelie like you!

Hello!  I started making some Valentine's Day cards for my shop.  I love Lawn Fawn stamps and their punny sayings!  So I used a bunch of their stamps recently.  And I totally thought I would be good and not get anything from their new release but those dies!  I want the Fancy Box and the Scalloped Box Card Pop up! 

Here is one of the cards I've made recently using Lawn Fawn's Wheelie Like You set.  I had to do some selective stamping to stamp the Wheelie three times and in red.  I use a small post it and cover up the words I do not want to be inked up.  Then I remove the post its and stamp only the word I want.

Here's a close up.  I fussy cut the little guinea pig out and adhered him onto the wheel.  Wait, he is a guinea pig, right?  Could he also be a hamster?

Well, hope everyone enjoyed their weekend.  We had an incredible day of traffic yesterday!  My husband and daughter were stuck on the road for about 5 hours.  If you live on Oahu, you know what I'm talking a…
