This is my card entry for TGF's Farm Fresh Friday challenge for the week. It's my first FFF. I don't know why I wait til almost the last minute to participate. It's the pressure of the deadline, I suppose. So the challenge was to incorporate some sewing or even faux sewing on 2 layers of DP or cardstock. I have a sewing machine under my craft table and I haven't used it at all! It's a few years old already and I bought it cause I wanted to learn to sew but never really got around to it. I didn't use it for this challenge either. I used my paper piercer that I just got and hand sewed the outline of the clouds in the sky and some of the "waves" in the ocean DP.
So while I was cleaning out my storage room this past weekend I found all this felt! Ahhhh! So I made a little palm tree for Dress Me Ian to cool off under. There's some hand stitching on the leaves and the tree trunk.
I used some yarn for the bottom scallop portion and just weaved it through. Don't look too closely at my coloring on Ian. I was running out of ink in my Copic pen. But I'm happy I just got new ones from All That Scraps today! It's always fun to get new crafty things.
Anyway, hope you're having a good summer. It's almost back to school for the kids. Thanks for reading!
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!
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…
Hi! I've been making a lot of tags lately trying to get ready for Christmas and I am finally done.
These were made with Lawn Fawn stamps and dies. I love this set. It is so cute and funny!
Here is the back of the tags. I think these would be so fun to put on gifts for children. They would think the tags are so funny!
Here are the polar bear tags. I love this polar bear. His expression is so cute!
This is the back of the polar bears.
I also made more of the tags I had made last year. So these are all listed in my shop now. I tried to make a lot at one time because I'm not sure if I'll be making more of these designs this year. I want to make some newer ones with some of my dies that I have not used yet! Trying so hard to not buy more than I can use. Although sometimes that is so difficult! I was really good in September and did not buy any new Mama Elephant or the cute Bitty Bears from Birdie Brown. I had such restraint but who knows how long that will last t…
