musical movies

Hi!  Hmmm, this may be a longer than usual post as I think I may have gone a little overboard participating in The Greeting Farm's April Customer Challenge over on SCS.  I think because I had a little crafting mini break that I tried to make up for it by making 3 cards over the weekend.  I'll be sharing all 3 in this post since the deadline for this challenge is Monday.  The challenge is create a card inspired by a Musical Play or a Musical Movie.  

For the first card, I followed sketch #47 at The Deconstructed Sketch

When I was a kid, I loved the movie Annie!  I loved the songs and everything.  So this is my version of it.  I used TGF's Stella (body) and Nahla's head.  

I'm thinking she looks kind of sad but maybe hopeful too?  I ended up cutting off her little pigtails and wiping away Stella's envelope in her hands.

It's hard to tell but I did sponge on some clouds behind her but the lighting makes it look like a plain piece of white cardstock.

Can you guess this one?  High School Musical!  My kids loved those movies.  I'm sure we'll re-watch these movies when my youngest gets into them.  My older son loved the songs and tried to imitate the dance moves.  Ha!  Still cracks me up when I think about it.  I think he likes singing and so next school year, I'm having him sign up for the school chorus.  

So Troy is a mix of TGF's Paul and Dylan.  I wiped away the original number that was on the shirt and put Troy's number instead.  And Gabriella is a mix of Odette and Miko.  

The paper is some older school themed stack that I had.  Simple card.  I added some musical note die cuts from My Favorite Things. 

The last card I made was inspired by Grease, one of my favorite movies and really, the original High School Musical.  I love the end of the movie and that's what I wanted to portray in the card. 

This altering took some doing!  I wasn't sure if I could pull it off but in the end I love how it turned out.  Sandy is a combination of Miss Anya Love (head and shirt), part of the pants from Miss Anya Autumn and the shoes were from another Miss Anya from the Love set.  I used my light box to trace the pants and make the pants longer actually.  Danny is from My Guy Ian.  I just traced in the outline of his shirt using my light box instead of having the original patterned shirt.  I was worried it would look weird but since I had to color them in black anyway, it hid a lot of the mistakes!

I added in the first couple of lines to the song, You're the One That I Want.

I didn't spend the whole weekend making these cards though.  I actually had time to do the usual amount of laundry and then some since I cleaned out my kids' rooms and did some vacuuming too.  Plus I have 2 sick kiddos.  My oldest seems okay but my youngest has a super high fever so I think I'll be heading to the doctor's tomorrow.  He has already peed in his bed twice since being sick so that has added to my laundry load as well.  

Thanks for reading!

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…

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!

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…
