Butterfly Butterfly

Hi!  Wow, how often does Blogger change their "look?"  Trying to get used to the new one.  I'm feeling a lot better today.  Thanks, everyone!  I thought I'd play along in Flutter By Wednesday's Challenge #199 which is to case Danni's first card.  This is almost the last challenge as Danni will close the challenge blog after the 200th challenge.  I didn't get to play too long but it was fun. 

I followed the basic layout of Danni's card and the blue colors.  But I did add the bow and the circular die cuts. 

I used CC Designs Ima Butterfly.  She's such a cutie too!  I paper pieced her dress and colored the rest of her with Copics.  I added some highlights with a white gel pen.  I also masked in the clouds in the background using PTI's cloud die.  I really like the look of the clouds.

The sentiment is also from CC Designs which I heat embossed and cut out with a Spellbinders circle die.  The blue die cut is from PTI as is the ribbon.  The flower shaped button is from Stampin' Up!.   

I'll also be entering this into Paper Sundaes Challenge #117 -- Let's Get Cute and Oozak's Challenge #1 --Anything Goes.

Have a great week and thanks for reading!

So pretty! I love your colorful pixie and the cloudy background! I had to have that image too - but um, haven't inked her up yet, lol. I also love the blues! Glad you're feeling better!

Super cute! Yeah, love your clouds! I want to try that someday. Even paper piecing. Looks so painful to fussy cut though.

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!

Knuffle Bunny

Hi!  The Greeting Farm had their Customer Challenge & Chit Chat Night "A Night at the Bookstore" and introduced a few challenges.  I have to say chatting was too fast for me and I couldn't really keep up.  It was still early here, and I had to pick up the kids from school and activities and make dinner and eat and so I guess the timing didn't really work out with our schedule. You can check out the challenge details on the SCS forum HERE.  I made this card for Favorite Child's Book category.  It is based on the Mo Willems book Knuffle Bunny.  It's one of my kids' favorites and it's such a cute story.  We actually love reading Mo Willems' books especially his Elephant and Piggie series.  Those books are hilarious!  This challenge also made me realize that I haven't read many books recently except kids' books.  I used to love reading but just haven't given it much time lately.  Anyway, here is my card.

If you've read the story, yo…

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…
