All That Scraps April Preview Day 2

Please click HERE for the Perfect Paper Crafting and Faber-Castell Blog Hop.

Hello!  All That Scraps is previewing Lil Lads and Lolitas, Mashi and Drozy's Darlings stamps today.  We're continuing with the love and marriage theme.

My card features Bride Lilith and the sentiment is from Wedding Labels.  I wanted to give her dress an antique-y look.  Have you seen that show, Something Borrowed, Something New where a bride has to decide between a new wedding dress or a remade dress passed down from her grand/mother?  It's such a neat show to see how the designer can rethink that old dress into something new.  I don't know if my daughter would want to wear my old wedding dress.  I'd probably want her to get something a bit more modern.  The dresses these days seem so much nicer!  And more expensive too.

Please head over to the All That Scraps blog to see more of the preview!  We'll be back tomorrow for a Sweet November preview.

Thanks for stopping by!


Gorgeous. You did such a gorgeous job of coloring her up.

Sorry to comment here. I came by for the Perfect Paper and Faber-Castell Blog Hop but you do not have a comment link on that post. Hopefully, you can update your page to fix that, but just in case I wanted to let you know how beautiful and elegant your first two samples were and how cute and fun your early Halloween card was.

I agree with Jean. I apologize for commenting here, but you didn't leave a link for comments on your post for the Perfect Paper and Faber-Castell Blog Hop. I hope you get it fixed soon, and I hope our posts here still count. I truly like how you created your cards using the tools. They're beautiful!

What a fab doily works perfect here with this great image. I agree, the dresses seem so much nicer now that when I got married 25 years ago!

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…
