Congrats!

Hi all!  Sorry, sorry, this post is late!  I think I got preoccupied cleaning and getting ready for my daughter to come home.  I cleaned out her room while she was away.  She said it rained and actually had to buy a second poncho because her first one broke.  Then I unpacked all her things which was kind of stinky since she had all her wet socks from the rain in plastic bags.  And she took over 2000 photos!  Still haven't looked through all her photos. 

Anyway, Yumi & Fumi Handmade Crafts Challenge #18 is Congrats/Celebration.  There are still a few more days to enter.

I used Winter Yumi to create this bright and fun card.  I don't even have anyone to give this to but wanted to use this sentiment from PTI that I've had forever and not even inked up once.  Sometimes I wonder what am I doing buying stuff and never using them?  And so I also dug out that note die from PTI as well.  I think I am doing so much better with not buying too many crafty stuff.

Here's a close up.

Head over to Yumi & Fumi Handmade Crafts blog to see Denice's creation too!  I love how creative it is!  Link up your creation on the original challenge #18 post HERE.  And don't forget to check out the challenge rules HERE.

I've got a lot of stuff to organize and need to get crafting again!  Thanks so much for stopping by!

You mean she didn't use a homemade poncho AKA big garbage bag?! Glad she made it home safe and sound. Cute colorful card! Reminds me that I haven't used my note die for a while too.

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…
