Let's Travel Together

Hi!  Here's a little card I plan to enter in TGF's Farm Fresh Friday Pop Challenge.  We're to use a technique to "pop up" our projects so it reminded me of the "spotlight" technique that can be found on Splitcoast Stampers here.  Claudia and Company had a spotlight challenge also that I thought was pretty neat.

I picked TGF's Oliver & Amelia's Journey set because I love they way Amelia is looking at her bear and that's what I wanted to spotlight.  I also popped up the bear and her arm again on the spotlighted piece.  Paper tole technique, I think?

Here's another view.  I liked this technique because I didn't have to color much!  Although my hubby looked at it and gave it a weird look.  What?!  He says it's too artsy.  He likes simple the best which is true I suppose for most things.  But I'd say this is far from artsy.  Geez.

Did you notice my card edge?  Heehee, I just got my PTI edgers die so I had to try it.  Then I also wanted to use the banner die I got to put the sentiment from the Journey set.  I thought I could try to stamp each word of the sentiment in a straight row directly on the banner but kept getting it crooked so finally just stamped it on pink and cut it out to paste on the banner.  The banner is also popped up a bit.  I also used PTI's impression die on the kraft paper.  Amelia is stamped on PTI's rustic white cardstock. 

Thanks for reading and hope you're having a great weekend!

This is so cool, Eva! Something different and very artsy! Love the decorative edge--I'm waiting for my PTI order, too.

What a neat card! All I know is that's a lot of layering and coloring! You picked a very cute stamp! Ha ha, lots of new dies! Looks nice! How do you like the impression plates? Did you have to buy the 2 extra mats? I got my PTI order today. I might need to order again... now I'm thinking I should have gotten the ticket die.

VERY COOL! I love the spotlight technique and you rocked it! Loving the kraft & pink and the impressed background, too.

Wow, this looks so cool Eva! Love all the textures and the shaped edge, the spotlight treatment really puts the focus on Amelia & her teddy...very artsy! :)
Awesome card!

I love this! Adorable, and I do love that pop! I'm tempted to get that edger die especially after seeing your creation!

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…

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…
