So here I am doing it again! Entering a challenge at the last minute. There's just a few hours til this challenge closes at Die Cuts r Us' A Crafty Little Place. It's a sketch challenge with a stars and stripes theme. So this is my card entry. I just got this cute stamp from DCRU today! It's my first Puddle Jumpers stamp by Lori Boyd. Hopefully I'll be adding some of her friends to my collection too. Anyway, she is named Emma and she has a cute bunny friend. Emma is all dressed in her red, white & blue outfit to go check out the 4th of July fireworks. (I know it's already past but I like to make up stories for these little characters in my head).
Here's a close up of the bunny holding a little flag. I made it with the smallest rectangle nestability and used felt from PTI. I stamped the USA letters with PTI's Simple Alphabet stamp set. I wanted to try this after I saw that Nicole Heady had stamped on her felt too. I don't know why I didn't think of that too. Then I stuck on a cute star sticker and bling. The flag is attached to a little toothpick I colored blue with my Copic pen.
Here's a close up of the stars I punched out from some DP. I stuck on dome epoxy stickers over them to make them stand out a bit. After I took the pictures I realized I didn't have any stripes on this card. Hmmm, do the 2 red stripes on the bottom of her dress count? Oh, oh, now I remember ... the stars on the right DP are arranged like stripes. I think that is what I was thinking. Oh well, that is my first entry for A Crafty Little Place. Must go link it now.
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…
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…
