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!

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…

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…
