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!

cute card! it is nice and bright! how much cash are you giving him for 2 teeth?

$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!

all occasion tags

Hello!  I have more tags to share today.  I kept these simple too to be used on most any occasion.  They have no sentiments on them. I used MFT's cute Birdie Brown Bitty Bears stamp set.  These were on my wish list for a while and I kept going back and forth about purchasing them especially because I wanted the dies to cut them out too and those were very expensive!  Geez, remember the old days when we used to fussy cut everything out by hand? This is the next 6 tags.  There's also a cute bear with a Santa hat that I didn't include in the photos.  This was a pretty quick project since I kept the bears white!  Not much coloring on these tags but they are still cute and colorful. I thought I was going to be doing more stamping but I've actually gone on to crochet more!  I've made 3 more crochet projects that I'll share soon.  Sometimes I do get the urge to color something but these days it's so much easier to pick up some yarn and my hook and crochet

coffee cup shaped cards

Hi!  I think after this post I may need a little nap!  My right shoulder is actually feeling worn out from all the typing and photo editing I've been doing lately.  And this cooler weather is making me drowsy.  It's getting cold here already! I made a bunch of these coffee shaped cards using a die from Honey Bee Stamps .  It's a cute coffee set but the die is extra long so it would probably help to have a longer platform to diecut.  I just have the standard sized one so I would pass it through once in my Big Shot and then rotate the cardstock and die carefully to cut the other end.  Manageable but the longer platform would be more convenient! I embossed the front of the card with some pretty snowflakes.  I think this is a Sizzix embossing folder.  And then stamped the coffee sleeve with some Lawn Fawn stamps. This is the inside.  The gift card slot does not come with this coffee cup die set.  I cut that opening with one of the dies from MFT's gift card dies.

Snowman gift card holder

Hi!  I was planning to post this last night but I was just too tired to write or think of complete sentences.  It's been a busy week with the boys on Fall break and still trying to finish up a bunch of crafts.  I have been trying to make some crocheted crafts to put in my Etsy shop and finally I'm done with one.  It's a crocheted snowman that can hold a gift card or anything actually that is small enough to fit in the pouch.  The pattern is designed by ChiWei Ranck of One Dog Woof and can be found HERE . Here's the little snowman with his arms folded over in the front to look like he is hugging the card.  I added this fun card that I stamped.  You can definitely add in a gift card too behind this card. The gift card reaches under his nose. This is how the little opening of the pouch looks.  I hope I can make more of these little guys.  These would be so cute for teachers and I think it would be easy to put a little wire through the hat and then use it as
