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!

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…

I wheelie like you!

Hello!  I started making some Valentine's Day cards for my shop.  I love Lawn Fawn stamps and their punny sayings!  So I used a bunch of their stamps recently.  And I totally thought I would be good and not get anything from their new release but those dies!  I want the Fancy Box and the Scalloped Box Card Pop up! 

Here is one of the cards I've made recently using Lawn Fawn's Wheelie Like You set.  I had to do some selective stamping to stamp the Wheelie three times and in red.  I use a small post it and cover up the words I do not want to be inked up.  Then I remove the post its and stamp only the word I want.

Here's a close up.  I fussy cut the little guinea pig out and adhered him onto the wheel.  Wait, he is a guinea pig, right?  Could he also be a hamster?

Well, hope everyone enjoyed their weekend.  We had an incredible day of traffic yesterday!  My husband and daughter were stuck on the road for about 5 hours.  If you live on Oahu, you know what I'm talking a…
