Bunny Thanks!

I'm still very slowly working on making thank you cards. I made another card similar to the last one without the twine or tag since the bunny stamp was bigger than I expected. This is a bunny stamp from Stampavie. It's kind of a dark brown because the first brown pencil had a yellowish color to it once I started blending with baby oil, so I layered a 2nd darker brown pencil over it. I used PTI cardstock and patterned paper. The tiny "thanks" stamp is from a Doodlebug set of frames/tags. It's a bit small, but I couldn't find anything else to fit within the heart.
I distressed the edges of the patterned paper and circle. I thought it looked kind of fabric-like with the tattered edges so I drew in some stitches. I'm not brave enough to try sewing on paper. Plus do the paper fibers somehow clog the machine? I wonder if my sewing machine still even works. I have taken it to a sewing store twice over the last 10 years to get it tuned up. It was really frozen about 10 years ago. But they cleaned it and oiled it and the guy said it was supposedly good as new. I think it was somewhat easily fixable because it's pretty basic and not one of those fancy electronic ones. Anyhow, I used a white poster paint Sharpie for the white stitches. It's a lot more opaque than the white gel pen I have. Hopefully it won't dry out too quickly. It's like those metallic pens I used to have in elementary school where the ink flows out of the depressible nib.
Well, off to try to make more cards between laundry and feeding the kids.

Thanks. I had to look up the Sew Easy, I haven't really heard about it. Do you stitch by hand?

That bunny is adorable! And I have yet to pull my sewing machine out of the closet for papercrafts, too, lol.

Cute card!!! I feel bad. I have a sewing machine that I had for over 10 years and hope it will die cuz it really doesn't sew fabrics that well. But, it works fine with papers! Hehe. Too lazy to plug it in to work on a card though.
Huggable card! So cute!

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…
