best friends

Hi!  I really love the new Beans over at The Greeting Farm!  They are soooooo adorable with their little round bellies and fun hair!  I was wondering which one I should color first and use on a card when I saw the Best Friends sentiment from TGF's Flutter Heart set.  Then I knew I should put both of them on the card because they are Best Friends!  But what do I color them?  I knew I wanted one to have pink hair.  Then I saw iCopic's Weekly Challenge #73 -- V Family and so Glimmer Bean has purple hair!  I used the sketch over at TGF's SCS Saturday Sketch #7 to help me with the card.

So here's Glimmer and Shimmer Bean!  I love how bright this turned out.  I have to say they were fast to color up and fun too.  I didn't want all the extra images that were around each of the beans so I just cut around my image leaving a tiny bit of white border. 

I've had these paper scraps for a while and thought they fit them so nicely.

I actually curved each of the Beans so they were a bit more rounded on the sides and not just straight.  I added lots of dimensionals on this card under the Beans, the circle layers and the tags.

After, I realized this card matches the colors on our blog.  I wonder if we could put them on our blog header.  Hehe.

It's the first day of Spring Break for the kiddies so I hope the weather holds up.  Thanks for reading!

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…
