A Cupcake Kind of Day

Hi!  Happy New Year!  I was just sitting around wondering what I should do when I realized I haven't blogged in a while.  This is a little birthday card featuring the Pure Innocence stamp called Hello Cupcake.  I am really starting to like this line of stamps too so I'm looking forward to the next release which is Tuesday!  And the Die-namic dies look so fun and cute too that I may just pick some up also.  I thought the paper which is from My Mind's Eye set the scene so nicely that I just used the whole 6 x 6 instead of cutting it.  So this card is rather large.

Because it is large I put an easel type backing so it can stand like a picture.  I like the banners at the top of the paper and I thought I should've bought the banner dies from PTI!  Oh well ...  The little number 2 is a sticker.

I added some Stickles on the cupcake.  (Thanks, Cheryl!).  I also sprayed on some Sparkle Shimmer Spritz onto the whole card.  Maybe the above pictures would show that better.  That really adds some shine!

Tomorrow is back to school for the kids so I think I will be going to bed early.  It's gonna be tough!

Thanks for reading and have a great week!

That image is so cute and love the patterned paper you used & the cupcake topping. And um, I don't remember the last time I ever "...was just sitting around wondering what I should do". Just relaxing & chilling out sounds nice to me now, lol.

Cute card and paper! The sparkle looks neat. I'm still not back into the school mode, I didn't even get to do my usual websurfing and commenting this morning!

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…
