Birthday time

Hello!  I don't think I shared this card that I made for Rosemary Bridges for her birthday.  We did a special post for her over at Yumi and Fumi Handmade Crafts blog.

I used Yumi Peace Sign and tried to make it really feminine and pink-y.  The sentiment and tag is from PTI.  The pretty floral papers are from Wild Rose Studio.

Here's a close up.  I ended up fussy cutting her out.  Ever since I started using more digi stamps I have been outlining the black lines with my black Copic multiliner pen when I use my rubber/clear stamps to get a more defined black line.  That is one of the things I like about digi stamps.  The lines print so dark and perfect!  Sometimes when I stamp my lines they are defined here and there with some not so dark.  I especially like to darken up the eyes.  I also use the chisel end of my black Copic marker to cover any white that shows after fussy cutting.  I don't use the brush end cause I'm afraid the sharp edge of the paper could mess up the brush tip.

Today was a really wet and gloomy day with lots of traffic in the late afternoon.  So glad to be staying in tomorrow!

Thanks for reading!

Gorgeous card for Rosie's special day! I love that WR paper, I think I have a few of those in my stash, and the simple layout. Gorgeous colors on her kimono too and love howyou did her make up. I cover up the white the same way when I fussy cut and I tend to darken the blacks with a multi-liner too. I've recently purchased a reinker of black memento and it seems to work really well so that i don't need to break out the ML too much.
Anyhoos, super cute card!

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.

August 2012

Hi!  We had a short black out this morning and I didn't know what to do without my computer and internet, and I couldn't go blog surfing.  I was sad but I did cut everything out for my kids' Halloween goody bags.  Good thing my Big Shot isn't electric. 

Anyway, I made another page to my 2012 calendar/scrapbook using MFT's sketch #39 and Pure Innocence Year of Flowers series Poppy.

Here's my page.  Somehow I'm not loving this one too much.  I love the image but somehow the colors remind me of fall too much and not too summery.  And I think the proportions are a bit off.  But I decided to just stick with it.  It's still cute.

Here's a picture of both pages.

I'm gonna have to wait til I order the next couple months to continue.  But I'm happy I've made it this far!

The kiddies are home for fall break.  It's nice but messy and noisy.  It may be a long week.

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!
