Sister Stamps Release #19 -- Hideo & Mieko (again!)

*********************************************************************************


Hello!  Welcome to another day of Sister Stamps Release #19!  These stamps will be available November 1st.  So besides mochi and money, the New Year's Day also reminds me of calendars.  And I know there are many crafters that make calendars every year.  I make quite a few too because they make great little gifts.

Again, I decided to make a boy and girl version of my project.  These are perpetual calendars that I made using some dies from CC Designs.  I did a tutorial on these HERE.  Yes, they can be a little time consuming to make cause of all those alphabet dies but so worth it in the end.  And it does move fast once you get the hang of cutting out all those letters.

This is the first one I made using Mieko.  I wanted this to look especially girly so lots of pink.  I used some gold paper that I bought from J's.  I might've taken his last 2 sheets!  Hopefully, he'll get more in stock soon.  The sentiment is from CC Designs too.

Here is a close up.  I used the cherry blossom embossing folder from Darice though I didn't even notice I glued it with the reverse side showing.  But still looks nice.

Then I decided I should make this one with Hideo.  Same layout and design just different colors.  I think I will be saving these for my boys' nihongo teachers.

I forgot to add this photo in!  Must have been distracted somehow.  But here is a close up photo of Hideo.

Please check out what these ladies have to share today too!

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!

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…

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…
