Sister Stamps Release #17 -- Reindeer

Hello!  Today is the last day of previews and all of these cuties will be available on Sunday, September 1st.  Do you have a favorite?  I think I am partial to the crane but I love the reindeer too.  But Minoru is a cutie too especially if you have a little boy.

Here is my project featuring the Reindeer image.  I was feeling ambitious and thought I'm gonna put together a December Daily mini book.  Well, here's the cover.  After I cut out pages for the inside, I started thinking how do I know how many pages I might need?  What if I want to share more than one photo for each day?  Although I guess you're trying to limit it to one photo a day?  Anyway, I thought I had too many questions about that so I made the covers and I cut some pages and used some Elle's Studio journaling tags but didn't bind it yet.  I think I will wait til December.  Hopefully I will finish it.  I think that is how the story goes for most of my scrapbooking ideas!

I had lots of fun coloring these images.  Actually, I always have fun coloring Sister Stamps images.  I love to do their hair and they are not so large that there is lots to color.  And if you don't feel like coloring, you can easily paper piece their clothes which is what I did on here.  I love this reindeer.  I made him Rudolph but his red nose is a little hard to see in this photo cause of the glossy accent.

Alright, you know you need to visit these other ladies too right?  Here's the list.

So pretty Eva! I love how you use patterned papers together so they don't compete, but complement each other. So happy to have you as a regular DT member. Thanks for your help with this release!

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…

lots and lots of tags!

Hi!  I've been making a lot of tags lately trying to get ready for Christmas and I am finally done.

These were made with Lawn Fawn stamps and dies.  I love this set.  It is so cute and funny!

Here is the back of the tags.  I think these would be so fun to put on gifts for children.  They would think the tags are so funny!

Here are the polar bear tags.  I love this polar bear.  His expression is so cute!

This is the back of the polar bears.

I also made more of the tags I had made last year.  So these are all listed in my shop now.  I tried to make a lot at one time because I'm not sure if I'll be making more of these designs this year.  I want to make some newer ones with some of my dies that I have not used yet!  Trying so hard to not buy more than I can use.  Although sometimes that is so difficult!  I was really good in September and did not buy any new Mama Elephant or the cute Bitty Bears from Birdie Brown.  I had such restraint but who knows how long that will last t…
