Wagon Full of Love

This is a little easel card I made for my daughter.  It's the first time I've used Pure Innocence stamps.  I thought this one was so cute with her little wagon and so perfect for the occasion.  My daughter has been working so hard to participate in her school's Lego Robotics team.  They practice endlessly and she's given up lots of free time and had to give up swimming and participating in this season's tennis league.  But she loves to go to the lego practices.  She almost gave it all up because she was so afraid of public speaking.  They have to make an oral presentation to a small group of judges this Saturday.  She had quit but one of her coaches asked her to reconsider and I'm so happy that she did.  I think she is glad she stuck with it too.  She's practiced so much and in front of so many different people that it's becoming less scary to speak.  I know her team will do well this Saturday and hopefully will make it to the state finals. 

Well, back to the card.  These little animals in the wagon are so stinkin' cute, I can't stand it.

The sentiment is just so perfect.  I used PTI's mat stack die and placed little rhinestones in the corners.

Hopefully, she'll like the card.  I tried to make it as purple as possible since that is her favorite color. 

And I'm so happy there are teachers and coaches like the one who asked my daughter to reconsider.  She was so supportive and understanding of my daughter's fears.  Whether they make it to the finals or not, she and the rest of the team have already learned and accomplished so much. 

Thanks for reading and have a great day!

Your easel cards are so cute! I gotta try one, one of these days. The sky looks good, great idea for covering the white background, I gotta try that someday too. I bought a whole bunch of distress inks from Michael's when I had a 20% off entire purchase coupon over the veteran's day holiday, but haven't had a chance to use them :( Nice drawing of the sidewalk and grass too! Great practicing! Good luck at the Lego competition!

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…
