Another Mystery Monday

Hello, I finally have another card. Eva has been busy this past week! Which is a good thing since I was on spring break and now need a vacation to recover from my vacation. Unpacking and doing all the laundry after a super long car ride was really tiring, and I didn't even drive! I must be getting old. Anyhow, here's my card for Mystery Monday over at Club Anya. I seem to be off schedule with the Saturday sketches nowadays.

I finally got to use my new Creeper! (I need to go browse some blogs and galleries and pay closer attention to how people color curly/wavy hair). I again used the Basic Grey paper pack, Urban Couture, that I used for my first Creeper card. Somehow it seems to match the vibe of the Creepers.

I used the big heart doily (thanks, Eva! again!) in place of the curved piece. I was debating about cutting it in half, but then thought it might look weird like that and instead just let it cover most of the card and patterned papers! I also cut the red piece down a little so more of the blue background paper would show since I got a little overzealous with the distress ink and everything looked brown! Hopefully it looks like it I tried to match her dress color and not like I just picked a color out of the air.

I used a PTI birthday tag stamp for the sentiment and mulberry paper flowers with PTI buttons tied with floss.

Well, this might be it for me again for a while. At this rate, I'm never going to get through all my new stamps!

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

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.
