Hello Dreamer

Hello!  Happy weekend!  I can't believe how fast August is flying by!  I feel a little crunched for time trying to squeeze every little bit in.  I think I made a record number of cards these past couple of months.  I still have a ton to share!

Today is sketch #26 for TGF over on SplitcoastStampers.  Kelli made up the sketch this week and I loved it! 

I love the Beans so much!  Totally adorable!  I used Glisten Bean and colored her up with Copics.  My banners were made with PTI's banner die.

I love these Echo Park papers!  I am actually using my paper pads!  Totally not hoarding these days.  And I'm almost out of PTI's white cardstock that I usually use to color on when I make my simple one layer cards.  I was going to order more since I have some points leftover but the value is so not worth it when the shipping cost is more than the product itself!  I so don't like that!  And if I added one more package of cardstock, the shipping cost doubled!  So, what kind of white cardstock do you use that is also good for Copics?  I usually use the Xpress it paper for when I want to cut the image out.  Just cause it is thinner.  I'm so bummed with first the Copics and now my PTI white cardstock.

Thanks for reading!

Cute! Love the cheery colors on this one! Would it be too much for me to make 1 card with the sketch, color challenge and school theme? Hee hee! Well, I should try and finish a photo book first... Yeah, you poor people in Hawaii!

I know...August is whizzing by! I'm glad you're able to squeeze some crafting time in because I love what you make. This card is adorable - I especially like the cute tummy.

You're rocking the blonde hair lately! She's adorable! And love the mix of colors and patterns in your design! Right now I'm using Copic Xpress It blending paper (won a giveaway for Oozak's). I was using Gina's cardstock, but too thick and there's a coating. PTI was okay. I tried Neenah's but the copics bled a lot.

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…
