Penguin Love

Hi!  Cheryl has a post below this too.  I made this kind of last minute until 2 in the morning.  I don't know what I was thinking.  Usually I don't stay up that late to make a card.  I was feeling kind of restless again and thought I should make something since I haven't for a while, and I wanted to participate in Claudia & Co.'s tag challenge too. 

I used Puddle Jumpers Winter Ella from Claudia & Co. because my daughter has a love for penguins.  I didn't get a chance to make her a card with this stamp at Xmas time so I figure now is a good time.  I know it's kind of Xmas-y but I think it would be good for Valentine's too.  

Tag is a Spellbinders die and the snowflakes were cut in felt with Die-namics dies from MFT.  If you look closely, there is a whole lot of shine on the card.  Maybe a bit too much.  I wanted to try the Frost Shimmer Spritz.  That is mostly on the red tag.  I also sprayed on the Sparkle Shimmer Spritz but it really shot out all over Ella.  There is also some Stickles on the snowflakes and white felt heart that I just cut out myself.  

There's the little penguin that my daughter loves so much!

Thanks for reading!  Have a great week!

Your card is adorable! When you first said penguin - I thought "huh, what penguin?", lol! There he is. And just FYI - I tried commenting before, but for some reason, the comment box likes to jump around, or I'm going crazy, lol.
Very sweet card. Great use of the baker's twine. I really like how you tucked your tag behind it. Happy to have you at Claudia & Co. Come back soon!

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…

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…
