Doctors rule

Hello!  So the fun thing about selling your stash of stamps and dies is that you have some money to buy new stamps and dies.  Actually, I don't think I need too many dies any more.  Maybe a couple that are still on my wish list but I think I have become more of a CAS and one layer card maker.  It's just simpler and way easier to mail.  I think too that I need to be more selective when I buy stamps.  I don't wanna have a crazy huge stash anymore.

I got a chance to purchase a couple of stamp sets from Altenew.  I wanted a set called Doctors Rule because soon I'll have some cousins becoming doctors.  So hopefully, this set will come in handy.  I ordered this set directly from the Altenew website and it took 5 business days and a weekend for them to actually mail it out.  I know the weekend doesn't count but when you're anxiously waiting for a new stamp set, it can seem like forever.  I probably would order their stamps else where next time since I'm a little impatient.

I made this really CAS card.  I stamped the sentiment in tuxedo black but also went over it again with my black copic multiliner so it looks nice and dark.  The stethoscope was heat embossed in gold.  Then I just rounded the bottom corners.

This is the inside where I added a gift card holder (die from MFT).  I also embossed the top sentiment in gold and added the smaller sentiment in black.

I still have some stamps/dies to sell.  See my posts HERE and HERE.  I actually haven't had much time to craft because I was busy trying to get packages out and going to the post office almost daily but now it has slowed down again.  So if you're interested in anything, email me.  Yesterday, I actually finished making 6 cards!  I made 2 of these doctor cards.  I'll share the other 4 some time this week.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

This is sooo cool! I bet your cousins will appreciate these cards, especially with the CAS concept. I don't think doctors like fuss. They like clean. hahaha!
I dare not check out another stamp company, I've just got too many. Need to destash but it's sooo hard to pick which ones to let go and which ones to keep. hahaha.. But like you said the good thing about that is getting to buy some new stuff. I just spent a bundle on the Misti so I think I'll wait for a while before looking. :D Can't wait to see what you made!

CAS and you make a perfect pair! Love the sentiment on this wonderful card, it says it all.
Perfect cards for the docs. Can't wait to see the other 4 cards you made. You're on a roll. I too need to destash and am getting more selective with stamps and dies that I purchase.

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!
