Sister Stamps Miyako!

Hi!  So I am telling myself not to be too lazy this summer because before you know it, it'll be Christmas!  These days are going by so fast.  I want to try to do something creative everyday.  I hope I can keep up with that goal.  The other day I finished up 9 more little Year of the Sheep calendars using Sister Stamps Sheep stamp.  I think I shared one before so I didn't photograph the set I just made.  Yesterday and today I stamped up Sister Stamps Miyako and just had fun coloring her up.  Now that I have less DT commitments I have more time to just create whatever I feel like!  I kind of missed that. 

So here are the 4 I colored up.  I tried to use colors that I don't use too often for kimonos.  I think mostly I pick pink!  Miyako is such a cute stamp!  And I have a plan for her to go on some calendars along with a cute saying I found on the internet.  Yup, she's not just for Valentine's Day!

I also started coloring up Yoichi because my middle guy is taking Taiko for the summer and I want to make a couple of thank you cards for his teachers. 

I hope you have a great 4th of July!  We're gonna be different and bake a turkey tomorrow instead of grilling.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Wonderful colorings Eva. Each one is vibrant and pretty.Great idea to start thinking about Christmas projects. I'm such a slacker! Lol... Have great 4th weekend! ^.^
Great job Eva~
I'm trying to be more pro-active this year... 2014 was a bit hectic and I don't want to fall in that same stress out mold. So I'm crafting as much as I can and need to refill my stash of cards... I just sold practically all my cards and need to replenish...hehe! Happy 4th~

Cute variations! Hope you had a great holiday and turkey! It has been too hot to grill! I did BBQ meat last week and standing over the hot grill when it's already hot outside is not fun!

Snowman gift card holder

Hi!  I was planning to post this last night but I was just too tired to write or think of complete sentences.  It's been a busy week with the boys on Fall break and still trying to finish up a bunch of crafts.  I have been trying to make some crocheted crafts to put in my Etsy shop and finally I'm done with one.  It's a crocheted snowman that can hold a gift card or anything actually that is small enough to fit in the pouch.  The pattern is designed by ChiWei Ranck of One Dog Woof and can be found HERE . Here's the little snowman with his arms folded over in the front to look like he is hugging the card.  I added this fun card that I stamped.  You can definitely add in a gift card too behind this card. The gift card reaches under his nose. This is how the little opening of the pouch looks.  I hope I can make more of these little guys.  These would be so cute for teachers and I think it would be easy to put a little wire through the hat and then use it as

all occasion tags

Hello!  I have more tags to share today.  I kept these simple too to be used on most any occasion.  They have no sentiments on them. I used MFT's cute Birdie Brown Bitty Bears stamp set.  These were on my wish list for a while and I kept going back and forth about purchasing them especially because I wanted the dies to cut them out too and those were very expensive!  Geez, remember the old days when we used to fussy cut everything out by hand? This is the next 6 tags.  There's also a cute bear with a Santa hat that I didn't include in the photos.  This was a pretty quick project since I kept the bears white!  Not much coloring on these tags but they are still cute and colorful. I thought I was going to be doing more stamping but I've actually gone on to crochet more!  I've made 3 more crochet projects that I'll share soon.  Sometimes I do get the urge to color something but these days it's so much easier to pick up some yarn and my hook and crochet

coffee cup shaped cards

Hi!  I think after this post I may need a little nap!  My right shoulder is actually feeling worn out from all the typing and photo editing I've been doing lately.  And this cooler weather is making me drowsy.  It's getting cold here already! I made a bunch of these coffee shaped cards using a die from Honey Bee Stamps .  It's a cute coffee set but the die is extra long so it would probably help to have a longer platform to diecut.  I just have the standard sized one so I would pass it through once in my Big Shot and then rotate the cardstock and die carefully to cut the other end.  Manageable but the longer platform would be more convenient! I embossed the front of the card with some pretty snowflakes.  I think this is a Sizzix embossing folder.  And then stamped the coffee sleeve with some Lawn Fawn stamps. This is the inside.  The gift card slot does not come with this coffee cup die set.  I cut that opening with one of the dies from MFT's gift card dies.
