Hi!  Grrr!--is that what Frankenstein says?  I'm not too sure.  Anyway, I made a second card for Lily Pad Cards sketch challenge sponsored by The Greeting Farm.  My first entry is HERE if you're interested.  Remember the sketch? 

When I first saw this sketch I totally saw a face.  Those knobby things on the side look like ears to me.  But I didn't really think drawing a huge face on a card would look that cute until I thought of Halloween.  And that brings me to my card for today.

Hehehe.  Is he not cute?!  I mean for a monster, he's kind of cute.  But I'm really proud of myself cause I made him with my dies and a couple of punches.  No stamps except for that scar above his eye which is from the mouth of a skeleton face in PTI's Halloween Treats and Sweets set.  His face uses Spellbinders reverse wonky rectangles, and I used my corner punch to round the bottom of his face.  His hair (PTI felt) is made with a partial die cut using the reverse wonky rectangles.  The bottom of his hair uses MFT's grass die but the reverse side cause otherwise you'd just get a strip of hair.  Does that make sense?  Various size circle dies/punch for his eyes and the bolt thingies on the sides of his face.  His mouth is from PTI's rickrack die. 

I had some leftover Bo Bunny Halloween papers from last year.  And the sentiment is cut from one of the papers.  I added some puffy soft spider stickers I've had for too many years now and finally found them a good home.

Thanks for reading!

Too cute! Love that grass hair, eyes and mouth! Argh, don't remind me about Halloween, seems like it will be here in no time. I guess I should start looking for costumes. Maybe Belle will fit this year (crossing my fingers)

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…

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…
