CC Designs October Review -- Roberto's Rascals

Hello!  It is a review day over at CC Designs.  We're reviewing a bunch of different stamps today so please head over there and check them out.  I made a couple of cards using Roberto's Rascals stamps.

This first one features Merry Christmas.  It's a fairly large image so it fills up the whole space!  The sentiment is from AmyR's Scripted Greetings and Fanciful Christmas.

I actually fussy cut all around the image and cut out even some of the tiny white spaces.  I cut through the girl's pony tail and then through her wrist to get to some of the white spaces.  But once you glue the image down flat on the card you can't even tell where I cut.  And the grouchy cat makes another appearance!

This is my second card featuring I Want That.  Holy smokes, this took me forever to color!  So much details on this image that I kept the rest pretty simple.  I made a big bow which is mostly by accident.  I made the smaller one in the front first then thought that was too small and made a larger one.  Then I stuck on the smaller one on top the bigger one so it would look fuller.  The little tag was made using the Grunge Envelope die.  The sentiment is from Funny Christmas Sayings.

Here is a close up.  This stamp along with Henry Claus are special Toys for Tots stamps with 30% of the proceeds going to Toys for Tots.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Knuffle Bunny

Hi!  The Greeting Farm had their Customer Challenge & Chit Chat Night "A Night at the Bookstore" and introduced a few challenges.  I have to say chatting was too fast for me and I couldn't really keep up.  It was still early here, and I had to pick up the kids from school and activities and make dinner and eat and so I guess the timing didn't really work out with our schedule. You can check out the challenge details on the SCS forum HERE.  I made this card for Favorite Child's Book category.  It is based on the Mo Willems book Knuffle Bunny.  It's one of my kids' favorites and it's such a cute story.  We actually love reading Mo Willems' books especially his Elephant and Piggie series.  Those books are hilarious!  This challenge also made me realize that I haven't read many books recently except kids' books.  I used to love reading but just haven't given it much time lately.  Anyway, here is my card.

If you've read the story, yo…

August 2012

Hi!  We had a short black out this morning and I didn't know what to do without my computer and internet, and I couldn't go blog surfing.  I was sad but I did cut everything out for my kids' Halloween goody bags.  Good thing my Big Shot isn't electric. 

Anyway, I made another page to my 2012 calendar/scrapbook using MFT's sketch #39 and Pure Innocence Year of Flowers series Poppy.

Here's my page.  Somehow I'm not loving this one too much.  I love the image but somehow the colors remind me of fall too much and not too summery.  And I think the proportions are a bit off.  But I decided to just stick with it.  It's still cute.

Here's a picture of both pages.

I'm gonna have to wait til I order the next couple months to continue.  But I'm happy I've made it this far!

The kiddies are home for fall break.  It's nice but messy and noisy.  It may be a long week.

Thanks for reading!

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!
