Sprinkle a little twinkle

Hi!  So after making my "brown" card in the previous post, I felt a need for some color.  Hehe.  I think this card came out bright and fun.  It is for a couple of challenges. 

The first is a new challenge blog that I came across called Sweet Stamping Pixies Challenge.  The theme for the first challenge is spring and you have to use a pixie, fairy or sprite stamp.

I also used The Greeting Farm's SCS Saturday Sketch #8.

I used TGF's Fairy Eva.  Hehe.  Of course you have to buy the stamps that have the same name as you.  I think this may be the first time I colored her up, though I have stamped her before.  She also now has a mini me in TGF's Fairy Princess clear stamp set.  That would be cute if they were on the same card like a mommy and a daughter.

I did some masking with Fairy Eva.  Also made the sky using PTI's cloud die.  I love how soft the sky turned out.  The sentiment is also from the Fairy Princess set.  I lightly colored in the edges of her wings and added stickles.

Well, today is the last day before the kids go back to school tomorrow.  And it's back to early wake up days so no more late night crafting for me.  I really enjoyed staying up late to craft.  I better not get too carried away blogging today either since I am doing laundry again and got a pot of corned beef on our small stove.  I don't want to forget about them! 

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…

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…
