Sister Stamps Release #16 -- Octopus Set

Hi!  It's the last day before these Sister Stamps cuties will be available for purchase.  All of these little sea creatures are so adorable, I can't even pick a favorite.  Every time I think the turtles are my favorite but then those dolphins are pretty darn cute too and the octopus is so squishable.

Ever since I made a door hanger for my daughter, my boys have been wanting one too.  Since they share a room I only had to make one for them.  Hehe.  They like these little guys so I gesso-d up this wooden door hanger and painted it blue.  Then I thought it would be fun to put this white board self-adhesive sheet on it so they can write messages like no girls except mommy.  Right now it actually says welcome!  I was shocked.

Here's a close up of the starfish and octopus.  I added a no heat lamination sheet around them and the puffer fish in case they get some dry erase marker on them.

Here is the cute puffer fish.

I wanted to share my youngest one's card that he made for his brother's birthday.  He looks forward to creating cards with the new images.  The other day he had mentioned something that I thought was really funny.  He asked me if he could have my Copic pens when I was gone.  I didn't know what he meant so I said if I'm going somewhere I might take my pens with me.  I said when he grows up he can buy his own pens.  And then he said no when you're gone.  I'm like where am I going?  He just casually said you know, like when you're dead!  Geez, I guess he's calling dibs on my Copics!  I better put that in my will.

Awww...this has got to be the cutest little door hanger ever. Thanks for sharing all the details for creating this! Your idea of using a dry erase board for this is terrific...and laminating the images so they'll wipe clean... what a quick thinking creative mommy you are!

Snowman gift card holder

Hi!  I was planning to post this last night but I was just too tired to write or think of complete sentences.  It's been a busy week with the boys on Fall break and still trying to finish up a bunch of crafts.  I have been trying to make some crocheted crafts to put in my Etsy shop and finally I'm done with one.  It's a crocheted snowman that can hold a gift card or anything actually that is small enough to fit in the pouch.  The pattern is designed by ChiWei Ranck of One Dog Woof and can be found HERE . Here's the little snowman with his arms folded over in the front to look like he is hugging the card.  I added this fun card that I stamped.  You can definitely add in a gift card too behind this card. The gift card reaches under his nose. This is how the little opening of the pouch looks.  I hope I can make more of these little guys.  These would be so cute for teachers and I think it would be easy to put a little wire through the hat and then use it as

all occasion tags

Hello!  I have more tags to share today.  I kept these simple too to be used on most any occasion.  They have no sentiments on them. I used MFT's cute Birdie Brown Bitty Bears stamp set.  These were on my wish list for a while and I kept going back and forth about purchasing them especially because I wanted the dies to cut them out too and those were very expensive!  Geez, remember the old days when we used to fussy cut everything out by hand? This is the next 6 tags.  There's also a cute bear with a Santa hat that I didn't include in the photos.  This was a pretty quick project since I kept the bears white!  Not much coloring on these tags but they are still cute and colorful. I thought I was going to be doing more stamping but I've actually gone on to crochet more!  I've made 3 more crochet projects that I'll share soon.  Sometimes I do get the urge to color something but these days it's so much easier to pick up some yarn and my hook and crochet

coffee cup shaped cards

Hi!  I think after this post I may need a little nap!  My right shoulder is actually feeling worn out from all the typing and photo editing I've been doing lately.  And this cooler weather is making me drowsy.  It's getting cold here already! I made a bunch of these coffee shaped cards using a die from Honey Bee Stamps .  It's a cute coffee set but the die is extra long so it would probably help to have a longer platform to diecut.  I just have the standard sized one so I would pass it through once in my Big Shot and then rotate the cardstock and die carefully to cut the other end.  Manageable but the longer platform would be more convenient! I embossed the front of the card with some pretty snowflakes.  I think this is a Sizzix embossing folder.  And then stamped the coffee sleeve with some Lawn Fawn stamps. This is the inside.  The gift card slot does not come with this coffee cup die set.  I cut that opening with one of the dies from MFT's gift card dies.
