metal stamped bookmark

Hello!  I was really trying to be good today and start exercising again but I just could not get my laptop going so that I could watch a show while on my elliptical.  Maybe I was having a bad connection with Netflix but I know my laptop is also old and probably gonna conk out soon.  After about 20 minutes trying to fiddle with this and that, I gave up!  I had my shoes on and everything!  Oh well, maybe tomorrow.

Today's post is so fun for me.  It's more metal stamping but this time on actual metal instead of wood.

This is an aluminum bookmark that I stamped for my daughter.  It's a little smudgy looking after she used it.  I should've taken a picture before I gave it to her when it was all nice and polished.  I even stamped her name on the bottom but I smudged it on here.  I made 2 small purple pom poms too for fun.  

Here is a close up of the quote I stamped.  Funny?  I messed up a bit on the heart on the bottom but that is why I need practice.  But overall I'm pretty happy with how this turned out considering it was my first metal project.  It does require a lot more elbow grease to polish and do the stamping than paper crafts but the outcome of the project is so worth it.

I don't think I have another project to share after this.  I'm trying to recover from a cold and so my crafting has slowed down as well.  Hopefully I'll have more to share soon!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Oh that sentiment is very appropriate for most kids today. Love the way the bookmark turned out. Thanks for sharing a good idea.

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!

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…

I wheelie like you!

Hello!  I started making some Valentine's Day cards for my shop.  I love Lawn Fawn stamps and their punny sayings!  So I used a bunch of their stamps recently.  And I totally thought I would be good and not get anything from their new release but those dies!  I want the Fancy Box and the Scalloped Box Card Pop up! 

Here is one of the cards I've made recently using Lawn Fawn's Wheelie Like You set.  I had to do some selective stamping to stamp the Wheelie three times and in red.  I use a small post it and cover up the words I do not want to be inked up.  Then I remove the post its and stamp only the word I want.

Here's a close up.  I fussy cut the little guinea pig out and adhered him onto the wheel.  Wait, he is a guinea pig, right?  Could he also be a hamster?

Well, hope everyone enjoyed their weekend.  We had an incredible day of traffic yesterday!  My husband and daughter were stuck on the road for about 5 hours.  If you live on Oahu, you know what I'm talking a…
