Comfort cards

Hello!  I'm getting a little bit sleepy early this morning.  Trying to kick my coffee habit.  I only drank a cup a day but trying to switch back to green tea.  Ha, I just yawned. 

I made a set of cards totally opposite my happy cards in my previous post.  I didn't know what I wanted to make so just grabbed my newest Winnie & Walter stamp sets, Addie's Garden and The Big, the Bold and Comfort.  Also went back to my love of kraft cardstock and kept everything simple even though there was actually lots of fussy cutting involved and touching up of the sentiments.

Here is the set of 5 comfort cards.  I kind of love them actually.  I love how simple the flower is and how bold the sentiment is.

I first made the flower in this kind of super light yellow, beige-y color but didn't think it stood out much against the kraft. 

Here's the second beige-y color flower. 

Then I changed to a light pink color for the flower.  I think I like that better just a little bit.

I like this sentiment a lot.  I stamped each sentiment and I guess my ink pad is running low so the black wasn't quite bold enough for me.  I went and colored in every sentiment with my Copic multiliner.  Even the small font sentiments!

I stamped right over the flower stems too.  Then filled the sentiments in.

Yawning again.  Anyway, that's it for me.  I think I might switch gears a bit and do some sewing again or play around with some felt.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

What an awesome stamp set, it's always hard to find the right "comfort" card. Yep, lots of fussy cutting, but it was well worth it.
Ohhh, I really LOVE your set of cards Eva. Simple and beautiful!!!!

Wow you colored over the stamps! Those typewritten letters look difficult. So pretty! I think I like the pink flower too. I think I need a 2nd cup of coffee some days in the afternoons. Or a nap.

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!
