Thank You Cards (Sister Stamps)

Hello!  I recently made 12 Thank You cards for my daughter's Lego Robotics Team to send out to their guest speakers.  She's at a new school and is on a new team.  Hopefully they'll do okay this season.  Anyway, this is about the time that my Big Shot broke!  So I was kind of bummed cause I wouldn't be able to use any fancy die cuts.  I still have my older Spellbinders Wizard so I've been using that but it doesn't cut the intricate designs as well and it probably would work better with a metal shim which I don't have.  I did notice my Big Shot was harder to turn and would seem like it was getting stuck.  Well, one night it did get stuck.  Plates and die and cardstock and all.  My hubby had to pry it loose.  The good thing is that it's still covered by warranty so Sizzix is mailing me a new handle with instructions on how to change it out.  I hope it works!  Otherwise I may be looking for a new machine.

So I tried to make the cards simpler in design since I had to make so many.  This first bunch I used Sister Stamps.

This is one of their newest stamps called BFFs.  Aren't they super cute?  The sentiment is from PTI. 

This one is Yoshimi.  I love that these stamps are so fast to color up and so cute too!

Here's Ayako.  I had a hard time matching the colors of her kimono to the paper.  But I think I finally got it.

I'll be sharing some of my other Thank You cards next time.  Thanks for reading and have a happy Sunday!

These are totally adorable!! I love each one!

My Cuttlebug handle keeps coming off!! I have to re-screw it back on with an allen wrench every so often! Does that mean we craft too much?! lol! I really don't want to have to buy a new one, but I can't live without it!
Hello Eva~
Your cards turned out really pretty with or without no Big Shot.. I'm glad your handle is covered under warranty too - yippee! Any who back to your TU cards, love the coloring and they are just perfect, cute sentiment and I really like these images simple and not overwhelmed with so many blooms... To me it throws the focal point of the images off.... Lovely coloring.. Check mark!

Oh Eva, these are adorable. Such sweet images. I think the paper matches the Kimono perfectly.

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…
