TGF Kidz

Hi all!  The Greeting Farm is having a fun kids contest so out of my 3 kids only my youngest wanted to participate.  But he's always crafting with me when I am crafting so it wasn't hard for me to get him to use some TGF stamps.  He usually picks his favorite TGF stamp set which is Miss Anya Garland but actually picked something different.

He picked Anya Treats and wanted that particular sentiment.  I had to read them to him since he doesn't read yet.  He "highlighted" the sentiment.  He colored in markers and wants to learn to blend.  Haha.  All the embellishments are from his own stash!  He collects ribbon from gifts and treats and puts them in his own box.  I tied the bow for him.  I bought him his own rhinestones cause he kept eyeing mine out.  I am glad he is using them in moderation and not all over the place.  And then I guess he felt he had to draw Pikachu's face on there.  Not sure why but there it is. 

He is quite excited about this contest.  I had to explain all the rules!  From the age groups to random selection to blogging and linking.  Oh boy.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Eva this is just so cute! Your son is talented like you and of course, he had to include Pikachu!! I think his drawing makes the card extra special - I hope he wins the contest. I would definitely vote for him!

Awww, so cute! Nice coloring! (No white spaces! I keep hearing that in preschool...) Cute Pikachu! He even has the light circles in his eyes!! Cute decorating as well! My daughter loves those gems too, she sticks them all on herself though, fingernails, hands, earlobes (she can't forget those hello kitty earring stickers!)

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…
