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!

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…
