whatcha doin'?

Hi!  So happy that I got to pick up a few Tiddly Inks Wryns during a great sale!  I was so excited that I printed some out and made a card last night for Tiddly Inks Challenge 81 -- Fabric Fun.  I actually stayed up really late to finish and good thing it was the weekend so I could sleep in this morning even if it was just an hour more.  Kids--why do they always wake up so early on the weekends?

So ever since I first saw this Whatcha Doin'? Wryn, I thought she'd look great looking out a window or something so that's the idea of my card.  I kind of wish I had one of those window frame dies.  But have to make do with what I got.  I used PTI felt for the clouds (also PTI dies), grass and flowers.

I printed the sentiment out and used MFT's Say What die to cut her little word bubble.  I also made little bows with embroidery thread for her hair and cut out her tiny little hands to stick out over the window (a bit challenging).

I put together a little picket fence and impressed the woodgrain (both from PTI).  There is felt grass behind the paper one using MFT's grass die.  I die cut the tiny flowers from felt (also a bit challenging) using an old Sizzix Hello Kitty die and added some rhinestones to them too.

I spent a lot of time just crafting yesterday and so maybe I lost track of what chores I had done.  I thought I had put the laundry from the wash into the dryer but realized at night that it was still sitting in the washer.  OR maybe it's because I do the laundry soooooo often that I can't keep track and everything just blends in together.  Sigh, in any case, I do the laundry way too often.

Thanks for reading!

Are you a genius, or what? This is fantastic! I love all of your fabric elements! I can't believe you cut her tiny little hands out! (I would have chopped a finger or two off for sure!) Those darn bows in her hair are just adorable, don't you just love embroidery floss?!


(hate laundry, doing it now) :p
You are amazing Eva~
Never a dull moment on your blog...
So darn cute, at least you beat me to posting her before me.....LOL!!!

Fabulous my friend.....

You enabler! I just finished coloring the Wryn holding the hearts in the flower pot, doesn't help when a rugrat keeps saying "I need the brushy pen!" I think I'm stuck on making a card though...gotta look for sketches now. The hair bows are cute! I will need to try that. How in the world did you cut those tiny hands, my hand is cramping just thinking about it.

Adorable as always, girlfriend! I love the woodgrain picket fence and the small little felt flowers w/ rhinestones! Also love the hair on your Wren image! and i agree - kids have some radar that lets them wake up way earlier than a school day on weekends.

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…
