Cupcake Anya

I finally made a card! After I don't know how long. I fell off the crafting wagon for a bit. This blog is supposed to help keep me motivated to actually use all the stuff I buy. Maybe it's helping me a little where I am at least thinking about it more often. Unfortunately, I don't always feel like I have the time or energy. But Eva is keeping me inspired, my crafting idol!

So anyhow, this week, I did the Saturday Sketch from Club Anya, again. I picked Cupcake Anya for my free digi from a previous week, so I figure I better try and use her before I forget I even have it on my computer.
The whole card seems a bit bright, but I wanted to match the colors on the glittery Doodlebug stickers (border trim, flowers, and label). And then I got a little out of control picking so many different colors and ended up not even using the stickers that contained any orange! First time I used my PTI New Leaf cardstock, I'm kind of actually liking that bright green. It's embossed with a Cuttlebug folder. I stamped on the cardstock sticker with PTI Mega Mixed Messages. I used the Memento black ink, which afterward I realized might have been a bad choice because it didn't dry very quickly and smudged a little because the cardstock sticker had a bit of a shiny slick surface. I colored again with Prismacolor pencils. Then I realized I kind of forgot how to color hair! I messed up where I wanted the hair to be light so I just colored the whole thing in.

This is just a sidenote photo of the tooth fairy box from Eva, with my son's 2 bottom teeth in there! He actually went to the dentist to get them out because his permanent teeth were coming in behind his baby teeth. Which was freaking me out, but the dentist actually didn't get too excited. So we tried for almost 3 weeks, except my son seemed to have a low threshold for pain. It didn't seem like we could wiggle it very hard and it didn't seem to be getting a whole lot looser. Although now I realize the teeth were kind of stuck down in there since part of the root wasn't totally dissolved at the front.
Anyhow, sorry if you didn't want to see any gross pictures of teeth. Have a good night!

$5 (for both teeth - yes, I'm cheap). But he thought the going rate for a tooth was $1, although he said someone said they got $20(!). So he was super happy that he got more than $1 a tooth!
Super cute card with the yummy cupcake for someone special. Love the colors used to make this too. Nice and bright! That tooth fairy tin is so sweet too!

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…
