A Little Birdie

If you're familiar with PTI, then this card might look familiar also.  Debbie Olson of Thinking Inking had made the sweetest card so I had to case it too.   The little birdie comes in the Tiny Treats Christmas set.

A little close up of the birdie.  I added some stickles to his cap.

I think I am finally done with my Xmas list and with wrapping presents.  My problem is that when I see a cute idea or project I try to think of every single person I can make that for which explains why I mass produce so much.  Like the little hats, I have to make it for almost every little girl on our list.  I have to tell myself that I can give it next year too.  So I was going to make some little school scrapbooks too this Xmas but just don't have the time or energy to mass produce those.  So I'll save that for next year.  I haven't even made our Xmas photo card this year!  I'll send out New Year's cards and start a new trend.

Well, I wanted to share a couple pictures of my crafting area.  When I get busy I tend to just throw everything onto my table.  Then I wonder where I put everything.

So there are stamps, papers, felt, tools, glue, etc. and my kids' toys too on my table.  There's also my sad sewing machine sitting under the table.  I really have to learn how to use that thing.

Thanks for reading and have a great day!

Cute little birdie! Ha ha, my desk usually looks like that too and I don't even make as much stuff as you! Plus you keep everything on your desk! I put my bigshot on an old microwave cart although I don't know if that helps, it usually gets kind of messy doing die cuts for me. I thought I had the same folding table as you, but I don't know if my plastic drawers fit under it, I guess I never tried too hard.

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…
