Hi all!  Sorry I have not been blog hopping lately.  I feel like I have a lot of little errands and chores to do.  Yesterday, we cleaned my daughter's bedroom although our intent was just to put in a "new" dresser and remove the old ones but somehow one thing led to another and we ended up cleaning her closet and her windows.  And then of course why not vacuum everything since everything is out of the way too.  So that cleaning and purging left me with more laundry to do and somehow led me to start rearranging and rethinking my craft area.  I need to get rid of some stuff!  

I made a very simple card a while ago but just didn't post it.

This is Faith from Stamping Bella.  I made this card just to try out my new red Copic combo.

These reds were a little harder to color nicely inside the lines since they were so new.  I added some Stickles too.

Anyway, I have been thinking about selling some of my old Papertrey Ink dies and stamp sets.  But after reading some forums about selling/buying horror stories I'm hesitant.  Maybe I have to just sell them to folks living here on Oahu?  What do you think?  I'm not sure if there are too many people here that would buy them. 

By the way, Sister Stamps has started their new release introductions.  Check out the posts so you have a chance to win these cute stamps!

Now I need to clear my desk so I can finish some crafting!  Thanks for stopping by!

Such a pretty card Eva, love the image and coloring.. Can't wait to see your showcasing on those new SS releases.
Aren't you glad now your daughter's room is totally spic and span. I'm going through my nightmare in re-arranging and cleaning at the same time in my crafty room... Hopefully this will be the final makeover and boy did I find so much duplicate items - I will be posting more on my candy giveaway I got going on as of today. eeeeekkkkk....

Definitely a pretty, pretty card! I wish you had mentioned the new red combo you used because it works well together! I just realized a couple days ago that I am missing my fav red Copic...R22...grrr!
Love your card and the sentiment Eva. Doesn't it feel good to clean and purge? I really enjoy organizing. Wish I was on Oahu to see the goodies you need to clear out. If you decide to extend it to the neighbor island, I'd be interested. Have a fun and crafty day. :-)

Wow, you got a lot of cleaning done! I have to be better about throwing things out, seems like I just shuffle things around...

Pretty card! Like that dark red for her pleats!

Usually stuff makes it pretty safely through the mail, although mailing it from Hawaii is expensive! I'm sure it was expensive to get those sent to you from PTI too! Is there some community board at the local scrapbook store or something where you can post a for sale flyer?

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…
