TGF's Farm Fresh Friday -- Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!

Hello!  I am hosting Farm Fresh Friday!  The theme this week is Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!  I just have a whole bunch of stuff that I've saved thinking I will use them one day.  Haha, do you do that too?  I guess it's kind of like my junk drawer but some stuff is just too cute to throw away, you know?  So in that sense I'm a tiny bit of a hoarder.

I made a small card sized 3.75 x 3.75 inches for the reduce part of my challenge.  You don't have to do them all but I thought that would be cute.  I colored up Bright Bean and also used the Wishes from Sparkling Season stamp set.  The birthday sentiment is from Lawn Fawn.  Can you guess my reused stuff?  The cardboard is pretty obvious.  I saved it cause it was small and cute.  I inked it up a bit and cut it into a heart shape.  Behind that is a pink netting that I've used before on another card and is the packaging from some rice noodles.  I just cut it up and the color is so pretty!

Here's a close up of Bright Bean.

Hope you'll head over to see what the DT has made.  I love what they have created!  So pretty and cute too!  Hope you'll play along with this challenge!

Thanks for reading!

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…

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…
