Yumi & Fumi Handmade Challenge #20 Reminder

Hello!  I am back today to share my card for Yumi & Fumi Handmade Challenge #20 -- Celebration.  You can pick any occasion to celebrate.  I chose birthdays because it's always handy to have a birthday card around. 

Here is Yumi Peace Sign.  I chose pink and orange again inspired by the blog hop photo in my previous post.  I never really thought about pink and orange but I kind of like it.  I think the colors look pretty on a kimono.  The sentiment and banner are from Lawn Fawn.  I also used my new Sizzix cherry blossom embossing folder though most of the embossing is covered!  And I got to use lots of my flowers on this one.

Summer school is almost done!  I can't believe it'll be back to school soon.  My youngest will be starting Kindergarten!  We have been at that elementary school forever!  Haha.  I am so happy that I get to drive to one less school.  Nowadays I gauge my day by how many drop offs and pick ups I have.  I get so happy when I realize there's only one more pick up to go.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

A gorgeous card and with beautiful coloring! The pink and orange is a great combo. I can't believe summer has gone by so fast...it seems I'm still trying to plan for June, lol.

Who knew those colors would blend together, I guess you just need the perfect shade of both, which you captured beautifully in her kimono. This is one beautiful card Eva!!
The kids are already starting school? Wow, didn't the summer just start? Well glad that you have 1 less stop to make.
Enjoy the rest of the summer!!

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…
