CC Designs December Preview -- Roberto's Rascals

Hello all!  Time for more Roberto's Rascals from CC Designs December release preview.  The new release will be available Thursday, December 5th at 9 AM EST.

My card features the fun and cute Skating Twila.  The sentiment is from Freezin' Season.  We don't have snow days here but once we did have a rain day where it was raining so much, they cancelled school.  It's kind of like today, where it is pouring rain outside and the roads are flooded.  But we still managed to go out and get our Christmas tree!  We wrapped it in a tarp on top of our car roof and brought it safely home.  The snowflake die and the icicle border die are available now in the CC Designs store.  These are quickly becoming a couple of my fav dies to work with for these winter cards.

Here is a close up of Twila.  I added lots of Stickles in the background and on the snowflake die cuts for some glittery-ness.

On a side note, I am guest-ing over at Chi Chi Memories for the next couple of months.  I'll be sharing a weekly project every Friday on my blog here but you can check it out now on the Chi Chi Memories blog HERE.  They have some cute digi stamps!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

So cute! Love the glittery snowflakes! First year we actually saw our tree in daylight and planned ahead for xmas tree shopping! Wow u wrapped your tree! I think it rained one year and we just brought it home wet, a little deceiving cuz it looked a lot fresher when it was wet! Your tree always looks so full, I don't remember seeing that kind tree when I was little!

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…
