CC Designs November Review

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

Hello!  TIme for a review of CC Designs November release.  If you're looking for some cute Christmas and winter stamps, check out CC Designs newest release HERE.

Here is my card featuring Fuzzy Boots and Snowy Wall.  I particularly like this card.  Sometimes I make something and I really like it.  Other times it's just okay.  

It's an easel card and it opens up like this.  The sentiment might be hard to read but you can click on the photo to enlarge.  The sentiment is from Christmas Verses II and I heat embossed it in red.  The snowflakes and the icicle border can be found HERE and HERE.  I added some Stickles to the snowflakes, icicle, on the snowy parts of the wall and the fuzzy parts of her boots and cap.  The funny thing is that when I first made this card I forgot all about the snowflake and icicle dies.  It looked kind of plain.  The dies just changed the look of it all.

Here is a close up Fuzzy Boots.  I tried to do that reflecting thing with the light and not quite sure if it looks okay.  Yeah, gotta practice.  

I'm super excited about next week and Thanksgiving.  I don't know why but I like to make the turkey and everything else too.  Even in our small little kitchen and small stove and takes me all day cause I have to cook everything literally one at a time.  But it's so yummy in the end.  Well, at least to me.  Only 1 out of our 3 kids like eating turkey and my hubby is just kind of neutral towards it.    

Thanks for stopping by!

I also think this card turned out wonderfully. It's sweet and extremely well colored. I love the way the front folds up to reveal the scene....perfect! Thanks for adding to my memory box of creative cards.

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…
