Just because

Hi!  I made a card to enter into a couple of challenges--Lily Pad Cards and the first challenge over at Young Crafters Unite!  It's the first time I'm entering their challenges. 

So YCU's first challenge is to color a stamped image.  I used my Copics to color in my image.  It's a month long challenge so still lots of time to enter.

Lily Pad Cards has a sketch challenge sponsored by The Greeting Farm so I had to participate since I love TGF stamps.

My card features TGF's Blush Babette.  I love her long, flowy hair.  Though if I had hair like that I'd probably wanna chop it off.  I haven't had long hair since I had my daughter and sometimes I miss it but I don't have the patience to grow it out.  The sentiment comes with the stamp though the banner is from Lawn Fawn.  I also used TGF's Blush Hello for the background on the lacey oval behind Babette.  I love the paper from Authentique.  I kind of splurged and got a whole bunch of papers from them--they are so pretty!  The little swirly die cut is from My Favorite Things.  I spritz that, the flowers and the black corners with some glitter, and added rhinestones.  Babette also has some stickles on her dress.  I like how this card came out and my hubby took such a nice photo of it.

It's back to school tomorrow for the kiddies and I'm wondering what I should do tomorrow.  Finish my 4 loads of laundry, I guess.

Thanks for reading and have a great week!


This is so pretty, Eva! Beautiful coloring, especially on the hair =) Thank you so much for joining our first Young Crafters Unite challenge!

What a pretty card! Beautiful hair! The dress and stockings look fabulous too! Are you sure you didn't take the copic class already? You got lacey ovals too?! The swirl is pretty, love the color combo.

Ooh, gorgeous coloring, Eva! Love the color combo and papers you used, too!
Oh wow, your coloring is so gorgeous! I'm still working on learning how to do hair, so I really enjoy seeing how others do it. Love all the pretty layers and texture... the scalloped oval especially. Thank you for playing along with us at the first Young Crafters Unite challenge!

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…
