mad about you

Hi!  The Greeting Farm is having another fun challenge!  You know I can't really resist challenges.  I don't know why but once a theme is announced, my mind starts racing!  Haha.  So it's March Madness over at TGF and the first week's theme is Mad About You -- create a lovey dovey card/project.  The theme just totally reminds me of Belinda Carlisle's Mad About You song.  Remember it?

Anyway, because I had just finished making such complicated projects, I thought I'd go the simpler route this time and just make a card.  Haha.  But there was still some thinking involved with this but not too much since I finished it in one night.

I used MFT's heart dies to cut out some hearts.  Originally I had wanted nesting hearts but I don't have any!  And these hearts are all just stuck together so I went with that.  I thought the layout was still pretty and interesting looking, plus I had to tell myself stop thinking so hard.  The mad about sentiment was made with PTI's Simple Alphabet.  And I added some red felt to the smallest heart.

A little peek inside. 

Closer peek.

TGF's Birthday Ian!  I heart him a lot.  I love the banner and I always imagine that he is proposing, not saying happy birthday.  Hahaha.  So I made the present look like that all important little blue box.  You know from where! 

See, simpler right?  Well, I had fun with this one. 

Thanks for reading and have 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…
