cupcake birthday cards

Hello!  Today I have some birthday cards to share.  Usually I don't mass produce birthday cards but I made one and I thought it came out cute and so then I thought I should make some more.  Plus if I have to take out all the supplies, might as well make more and birthday cards are so useful to have around.

This is the first one I made using some cute stamp sets from Mama Elephant.  I really love this cupcake set.  I heat embossed the cupcake and sentiment first in white onto watercolor cardstock.  Then I took my distress ink pads and rubbed them onto an old plastic cover to use as a palette.  I added some water and brushed on the colors like a rainbow over the white embossed areas.  After that was all dried I added the cute bunny wearing a bow.  I added some sequins for fun too.

These are the ones I made after.  No sequins on these.  I used different cupcakes and also tried embossing with gold on the right.  I made one bear with a party hat.

Here are the bunny versions.  I like these cupcakes the best.  They look really yummy!

I'm working on some teacher thank you cards too!  Yes, I'm working way ahead of time for the end of the school year.  Ever since I made a list of all my projects, I've been able to craft more often and keep on track.  There are days when I need to really motivate myself to get going though. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

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…

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!
