from the bottom of my heart

Hi!  I thought I would squeeze in a quick post before I go do my first school pick up of the day.  TGF has a new sketch over on SCS and my card today was inspired by it. 

The sketch was created by our Challenge Captain Peggy Toole.

This is my simple take of the sketch.  I used TGF's Blush Thanks and heat embossed it on a Cheery Lynn Heart diecut.  Then I also stamped and heat embossed those spots on the edges of the heart using TGF's Splotchy set. 

A little close up.  I added some pearls too.  The base of the card was impressed with PTI's woodgrain impression plate.

I hand wrote the sentiment on PTI's tag die cut and added that pretty flower I recently bought from Taj, a local store here.  The leaves are from Maya Road. 

I'm trying to be better about mentioning the actual products I use but I'm not in the habit of listing the Copic colors I used.  If that is something you want to know, leave a comment or email.  I'll try to better about it.  Just that after I color I just toss the pens back in the container!

Anyway, hope you join in on the sketch!  Click HERE for the link and the keyword info. 

Thanks for reading!

Wow, no coloring! But fabulous card nevertheless! Copics look difficult, I don't think I'm going there. I'll just admire your coloring :)

Gorgeous!!! Love the heat embossing, looks fantastic! I really like how you filled in the sides of the heart with the splotchy set! Very cool!

Eva this is just stunning! I love how you have stamped all of that text over the heart...the white really pops against the kraft. Beautiful job! :)

I looked at the sketch and couldn't wrap it around my head...I completely drew a blank. Yet, here you are with some fabulous inspiration on that same sketch. Great card!

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…
