CC Designs Toys for Tots Blog Hop!!

Hello!  Welcome to the CC Designs Toys for Tots Blog Hop!  I am so excited you could join us for the preview of Roberto's Rascals "Henry Claus" and "I want that."  CC Designs will be donating 30% of the sales of these 2 adorable stamps to Toys for Tots from today October 4, 2013 through December 23, 2013.

If you arrived here from Christa's blog, you are in the right place.  If not, you may want to go back to the start of the hop HERE.

This is my project featuring Henry Claus.  He is pretty sweet and gotta love his little dog hitching a ride in his sack.  The sentiment on the little tag is from Funny Christmas Sayings.

Here is a close up of little Henry.

This project looks similar to the other present shaped gift card holder I made HERE.  But it is actually different.  The tutorial can be found HERE.  I changed it up by adding real ribbon.  When you remove the bow, the top and bottom open up.

This is the inside.  There is a space for the gift card to slide into.  The sentiment on the inside is from AmyR Scripted Greetings.  I love the fancy look of this sentiment.

Next on the hop is Delphine!  I am sure she has something wonderful to share with you.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

OOOOh, another great Christmas gift card holder. I love the image and how you colored it so expertly. The overall colors, paper choices and layout are fabulous too. The ribbon that ties up the gift is a clever touch. Thank you for sharing your talent.

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…
