Imagine

Hi!  I thought I'd better get a start on some thank you cards and teacher gifts for the end of the school year.  I made a little thank you card for the school librarian using kind of an older TGF stamp set, Never Ever. 

I just used the girl image (and the Imagine sentiment from the Never Ever set) cause she looks like my daughter.  Glasses, long hair and her nose in a book!  My daughter loves to read!  And I know a lot of kids like reading but she loves it!  Every free minute she has, she's reading.  According to her school, she reads up to the 11th grade level now though she is in the 4th grade. 

I also used PTI's library card stamp and the library pocket die.  The large leaf is from PTI's Turning a New Leaf die set.  The flower and button are also from PTI.  I stuck a little heart stick pin (from Maya Road) through the button.  I saw this from Danielle Flanders blog and thought it was a cute idea.  I wrapped some lace around and also a doily in the back.  I also added some liquid glaze on her glasses and paper pieced the girl's book and fingers.  The small heart felt is cut from PTI's Tiny Tags die set. 

I also made a metal bookmark (from PTI) that I'll place in the inside of the card.  I put another library pocket die cut on the inside to hold the bookmark.  The metal bookmark tutorial can be found HERE.

I almost forgot to mention the distressing part!  The edges of the paper, cardstock, leaf are ink distressed and also used my distresser tool to give the edges some texture.

I'll be entering this in TGF's Farm Fresh Friday Distressing Challenge and Paper Sundaes Challenge 65 (texture).

Thanks for reading!

So pretty! And so appropriate for a librarian! The leaves look good just as a die cut. If only I could get my son to read more, he mostly likes those star wars character guides. And some Magic treehouse so I guess I can't complain there.

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…

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…
