Party Animals

Hi!  Me again with my 3rd entry for PTI's Make It Monday using scor-tape and glitter.  This is probably the most glitter I've ever used in my crafting life.  I promise this is my last entry, maybe. 

Anyway, I had this idea for this card using the animals from Tiny Treats Birthday.  I wanted a line of animals leading each other to Monkey's cage for his birthday party.  They are following each other using some twine on a glitter strip.  Because I wanted it to be kind of a long layout, I decided to make a money holder card. 

Here's a close up of Monkey hanging from some twine.  I used the mat stack stamp from Tiny Treats Christmas cause it looked similar to bars on a cage.  I used the long twine to tie the money card closed.

All the other animals coming along with Turtle bringing some balloons.

This is the inside.  It's a pretty simple money holder card to make.  I cut the kraft cardstock to 8.5 x 7 inches.  Then from the 7 inch side, I scored at 3 and 6 inches.  That leaves 2.5 inches to fold up to create the pocket for the cash.  I punched some semicircles and done.

I added another strip of glitter and a sentiment and wrapped twine on the edge.

Thanks for reading and have a great day!

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…
