Sister Stamps Design Team!!!

Hello everyone!  I have exciting news to share as you may have guessed by the title on my post.  This opportunity to design for Sister Stamps came when I was contemplating going back to work and doing less DT stuff.  I thought to myself, is this a sign for me to learn how to say no or is it another positive opportunity?  I guess you know which I picked and really, how do you say no to Sister Stamps?  Love the cute stamps and Jenny is super nice!  Thanks, Jenny for this wonderful opportunity!  And somehow I guess work will eventually fall into place down the road too.  Right?

Anyway, this is Sister Stamps 15th release and soon to be their 2nd birthday.  But for today, I thought I'd share something not birthday-ish but Christmas-y.  Yes, Christmas in June/July!  We have lots of family with dogs even multiple doggie families so these stamps are gonna come in handy at Xmas time.

Here is my project featuring the very sweet looking Kiki.  She looks so calm!  I finally gave in and bought this stocking die from Stampin' Up a while ago to prepare for this Xmas.  I cut some felt out and used fabric glue to seal the edges together.  My fabric glue was kind of old and stuck so when I squeezed just a bit too hard everything oozed out onto my crafty board!  Didn't want to waste the glue so I just used my finger.  Talk about messy!  That isn't really a doggy treat in there either.  It's a cereal bar for humans but it fit nicely.  Hopefully I can find some kind of doggy treat or something.

Here's a close up photo of Kiki on the tag.  I used a mini clothes pin to attach the tag to the stocking.  I also added some color to her cheeks.  Animals need blush too, right?

Please head over to the rest of the Sister Stamps gang to see more inspiration!

Hi Eva! Super cute idea to add Kiki on a tag for your Christmas stocking! Oooh! Just LOVED the way you colored Kiki up...she looks furry! Adding blush to her cheeks makes her look so adorable!
Hi Eva! Love how you attached the adorable tag to the Christmas stocking. I may just borrow your idea of making a Christmas stocking filled with doggie goodies for our 3 pooches. Can't wait to see what you have in store for tomorrow's post.

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…
