Stars & Stripes

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. 

Thank you for reading and have a great day!

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!

Knuffle Bunny

Hi!  The Greeting Farm had their Customer Challenge & Chit Chat Night "A Night at the Bookstore" and introduced a few challenges.  I have to say chatting was too fast for me and I couldn't really keep up.  It was still early here, and I had to pick up the kids from school and activities and make dinner and eat and so I guess the timing didn't really work out with our schedule. You can check out the challenge details on the SCS forum HERE.  I made this card for Favorite Child's Book category.  It is based on the Mo Willems book Knuffle Bunny.  It's one of my kids' favorites and it's such a cute story.  We actually love reading Mo Willems' books especially his Elephant and Piggie series.  Those books are hilarious!  This challenge also made me realize that I haven't read many books recently except kids' books.  I used to love reading but just haven't given it much time lately.  Anyway, here is my card.

If you've read the story, yo…

lots and lots of tags!

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…
