Hello, Friend

Hi!  I wanted to make a card for TGF's Something New challenge but never made the deadline.  So thought I'd make a card for TGF's Mystery Monday Case.  I am happy that you can use any stamp now for the challenges.  I'd always have to check myself to make sure I was using the right line of stamps.

I decided to use one of the images in TGF's Miss Anya Lounge stamp set.  First time I'm using this set.  I really am trying to get myself to use every stamp at least once.  Maybe I will need to stop buying more stamps for a while.  TGF stamps are so hard to resist though.

I used a little floral pin and PTI's Tiny Tags stamp and die sets.  The tags and stamps are so cute--one of my favorites from PTI!  I am also challenging myself to use more of my old papers.  I came to this conclusion after I had placed about $50 worth of papers into my shopping cart when I was online one day and thought I'm so ridiculous for buying new paper when I have a at least a couple drawers full of paper.  Well, I don't know how long I can last with that one--I may break down and buy some new paper.  It's so tough!

Thanks for reading and have a great weekend!

Cute card! I like the colors! At least you're getting cards made! My poor wild sprouts and most of the new creepers have seen no love so far. I don't know what I'm doing that's cutting into crafting time, probably on the computer too much, haha!

ahhh... you can't be worse than me. I have enough papers to last me for the rest of my life, and there are more un-touched stamps than the used ones. So sad. But, your card is sooooo cute. I do love that tiny tag and the way you put it.

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…
