Fat Bear Stamps

Hi all!  I have a non-DT project to share with you today. 

So I love these pierced tags from MFT!  Love the banner dies and these giftcard holder dies too.  So fun to put these giftcard holder tags together.  You all understand the sentiment means Be Merry and not Merry B, right?  Sometimes I wonder about my hubby.  It's kind of obvious to me but it wasn't to him.

I also made matching envelopes with my new Envelope Punch Board.  I kind of made them look like those manilla envelopes by folding them a little differently.

Here is the front of the envelopes.  These are stamps from Forever Friends.  I call them Fat Bear stamps.  I used to have these fat bears as stuffed toys, on stationary and cards and cups too but now can't find them here at all.  They have them online but from England.  I bought this stamp from 7 Kids and while they are cute, the quality isn't so great.  Kind of disappointed in that and happy I only ordered this one stamp.

I traced over the stamped image again with my copic multiliner because it just didn't stamp very nicely.  But isn't he very cute? 

Thanks so much for reading!

Awwwww, super cute! I love those bears! I used to see them at the Hallmark store...20+ years ago... Ha! I never thought of Merry B, maybe cuz I already saw the stamp set before. Most people will probably go straight for the giftcard anyhow... Cute envelopes too! I think the quality of clear stamps can be variable, I found these super cheap ones at Michaels on clearance, like no wonder, cuz the stamp was kind of soft and squishy, and didn't even stick to the block that well. That was a good idea to trace it, I will have to try that.

Gift card holders are the perfect gift wrap for something small. These are awesome!
Too bad about the quality of the bear stamp, hopefully you didn't pay too much for it.

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.

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!
