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!

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…
