Thanks So Much

Hi!  It's Make It Monday again at PTI.  The challenge is to "partially emboss/deboss/impress an element."  This reminded me a bit of the Splitcoast Stampers tutorial on double embossing found HERE.  So I tried to incorporate that and the video at PTI to make my card.  After a whole morning of trying to find the right sandwich and cardboard frame thickness I finally completed my card.  It's a good thing my kids are on spring break cause I didn't want to stop til I got it right. 

So the bottom portion of my card is impressed with the Book Print impression plate.  The impression wraps around the Mat Stack 4 die impression too.

I scored 2 lines above where the impression ended and added raspberry fizz strips in the middle. 

And I had to use some felt because I love PTI felt and the new royal velvet color is so pretty. 

I'll have to see if I can duplicate this and make another card.  I'm keeping this short since it's PTI release day and I have some shopping to do.  Thanks for reading and have a great week!


Lovely card, love all that white and I love that embossing plate.

Oh I LOVE this! I have no idea what you did or how you did it. Would help if I watched the video, eh? But it looks like something I want to try - maybe I'll play this week. Thanks for the beautiful inspiration!

Wow, great job with this challenge. Love the colors you used in the card. Their boldness works with the impression plate you used.

This looks so neat! What a cool technique, I guess I have to watch the video too. Oh, I forgot about the new colors, maybe on my next PTI order, the purple looks nice

Congrats on the PTI shout out! I didn't realize your technique was so complicated until after I read the tutorial.

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.

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!

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…
