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!

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…
