Pink ribbon

Hi!  I saw that TGF was one of the sponsors for Splitcoast Stampers Hope you can cling to challenges.  They have a whole bunch of challenges listed and will be adding more to benefit breast cancer patients at MD Anderson Cancer Center.  You can read all the details on their forum.  One of the challenges listed is hosted by Beate and is called Encircled with Love (make a circle card).

I knew I wanted to make a card with TGF's Fancy Anya because of the way her hands are apart enough to place a small ribbon between them.  I used my lacey circle nestabilities and tried to just keep it simple and it's blank so the recipient can use it for whatever kind of card they wish to.

Still practicing my pencil coloring using just my kids' pencils.  I also wanted to try the no lines look that I first saw on Carisa's blog.  You can see it HERE.  She did hers with Copics but I'm too chicken to try it with pens so thought I'd ease into it with pencils.  Though I think I shouldn't have outlined her hair so much.  Will try this again though.  I didn't have a really light ink pad so I just used my usual Memento's rich cocoa and stamped it twice to get a lighter shade of brown.  Then started coloring her in with pencils. 

Okay, I really have to start cleaning the house now.  I've procrastinated long enough.

Thanks for reading and have a great weekend!

Hi Eva, Great idea having her hold the ribbon. Oh and the pencil coloring is terrific! Now I'm gonna attack kid's coloring pencils. I love the soft look it gives.
Great job Eva -
Love the simplicity of your round card, the embossing pops it out and great idea with the pencil coloring..... Nothing wrong with using them, it looks fantastic.....

This is beautiful and touching! Love the simple design. What did you think of the stamping with no black lines? It was hard for me. I use Copics but for the facial features, I think I need something softer to draw them in with like color pencils.

Looks like you're having so much fun crafting! This looks beautiful - love the pencil coloring (my pencils are still sitting somewhere unused, haha) and the no lines technique!

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…
