U R picture perfect

Hi!  Another post!  We had a short power outage yesterday and gosh, darn it, didn't know what to do with myself.  So I cleaned my desk and did the bills and tried to organize myself.  But when the power came back on, we still didn't have internet connection.  Ugh!  So I looked through my digis and printed them out to color.  Good thing I remembered the challenge for Tiddly Inks!  I made a quick card last night for Tiddly Inks latest challenge #90 -- use Red, White and Blue.

I went with another simple design.  I printed Picture Perfect Wryn onto white PTI cardstock and just folded it in half.  I printed the sentiment and cut it into a fishtail banner.  The U and R are die cut with PTI's alphabet dies using their felt.  I actually wanted to sew the sentiment onto the card but since I don't know how to use my sewing machine, I used this rickrack ribbon to kind of give it that idea.

I colored Wryn up with Copics.  I wanted to alternate the colors of the flowers on the frame but I messed up on the very second one!  Geez.  Then added some stickles to the flowers. 

That's all for today.  I have a couple of quiet hours to myself but will do the dishes, tons of laundry and prep some fruits and lunch for the kiddies. 

Thanks for reading!


This is soooo cute... love her sitting on her picture frame....

Ha! I know, so dependent on my computer for entertainment. Hopefully you got a lot accomplished. Another cute card! Didn't really notice that flower thing. And cute banner! If you can crochet all those complicated animals and flowers and hats, you can sew! I think it's hard to get the thread and stitches looking nice though, I haven't felt like playing around with that since that one time I tried to sew on my 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!

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…
