It's Your Lucky Day!

Hi!  I made a little something for St. Paddy's Day that I plan to enter in PTI's Make It Monday Challenge (distressed edges) and also in Simon Says Stamp Challenge (anything goes).  Thanks Cheryl for the heads up on the challenge! 

I just had this overwhelming feeling to make a 4 leaf clover.  I guess it all started when I saw a crocheted clover and thought I should make one but then when I looked closely it looked more like the club from a deck of cards.  It didn't have the cute little heart shaped leaves.  So instead of crocheting I thought about making it with felt and came with this.

I started with the largest die from PTI's Beautiful Blooms die set.  I cut it in half to make sure I could cut out even shaped hearts.

I cut the halves like above and got 4 whole hearts total.

Assemble the pieces together and cut a stem and it makes a cute 4 leaf clover. 

I sewed the hearts onto the stem and sewed an SU button on it.  The button had a little space in the center perfect for a rhinestone.  I glued the whole clover onto a felt circle.

On the back I glued a scalloped piece to give it more weight and glued a pin (which I have many of from previous crafting ideas) and also covered the yucky glue part with another felt circle.

I used PTI's tag die and embossed it with this floral pattern from Cuttlebug.  Then I inked up the edges and even the raised parts of the tag.  Poked 2 holes for my pin too.

This is a card to go along with my clover pin.  I made this clover with the smallest die from the PTI's Beautiful Blooms die set.  I think the stem is a bit thick which makes it look more like a tree as pointed out by my daughter and hubby.  Oh well.  The edges of the clouds, card base and sun are inked up.

The scalloped edges are also distressed with my Tim Holtz distresser tool. 

I think this makes for a cute gift for one of my kids' teachers.  It's a good think I finished it tonight since my kids will be off for spring break next week.

Thanks for reading and have a great Friday!

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…
