TGF Heart Journal--week 6

Hi!  Wow, it's time for week 6 of TGF's Heart Journal!  This week is Text Me!--using lots of text and the tip is to cut up pages from old books or children's books.  Now I can't bring myself to cut up books even if it may be an old one cause it's a book!  So we used stamps for this assignment instead.

My daughter's fun and colorful page!  She used Crayola paints and I love the color combo even though she didn't really know what she wanted to do.  She actually did some finger painting too after she saw me do that on my layout.  She waited for the paint to dry and then stamped some sentiments from Paper Smooches.

My layout.  Truthfully, I never know what I'm doing when I start doing the assignment each week.  I kind of just wing it, I suppose.  I used watercolors and didn't want to use blue or green so started with red then some yellow and orange and added white too.  I had the bubble wrap still on my table so added that too.  Then used my much neglected PTI stamp sets for the rest.  It looks kind of Asian inspired though that's not what I had set out to do.  But it seems to work.  Oh, and I stamped one of the text scripts on the right upside down but I guess it's not that noticeable.

We're having fun doing these assignments, and every week we look forward to finding out what our next assignment is. 

Thanks for reading and hope you're having a great weekend!

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…
