A card for Kewie

Hi!  I'm continuing to post my kids' creations this week.  So next up is my youngest.  He has just discovered that scissors can cut really well and likes to cut up any stray pieces of paper.  Before that he used these plastic scissors that would just basically rip the paper instead of cutting it.  So now that he is using real kid-safe scissors, he is super happy to just sit and cut.  He has his own "cutting box" that he cuts his paper into so clean up is easy too.  My older 2 also went through this phase and loved cutting in preschool. 

I've also recently organized my crafting table and actually stole my kids' bookshelf to store more of my crafting supplies so there is more space to work on my table.  My youngest now can craft next to me during the day and it gives me a little bit more time to craft in between the requests that he makes to stamp an image here or there on his own paper.  He'll color and cut them out and glue them too. 

So this is my youngest one's creation.  He loves the images from Lawn Fawn's My Silly Valentine.  He calls the socks, boots.  I stamped the images where he wanted them and he then colored them in with pencils.  He stamped the egg image which is from PTI's Tag-its series all over the card.  He tried coloring the background like how his big sister did on all her labels but kind of gave up.  I think he colors pretty nicely for a 2 year old.  Maybe even better than his big brother who still rushes through his coloring.  We have lots of foam stickers so he added some flowers as well.  Love his layered flower look.

I asked who he wanted to give this card to and he said to our cousin who he loves to play with.  I know he will love seeing his card on the computer, and he'll be entering this in Simon Says Stamp Special Children's Challenge.

Thanks for reading!

So cute! You have a mini-Eva! He colors super nice! I can't believe he can already stay in the lines! Love the easter eggs and flowers!

Aw, this is so cute! He colors awesomely for a preschooler! Love the stamps, little eggs throughout, and the layered flowers. And ahem, yes, he must've been observing his mama's crafting style - his card is very balanced - and he's got his mama's skills.

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.
