happy cards

Hello!  I was kind of wondering what to do today.  Lots on the list, just wondering what should be first.  I organized most of my 6x6 papers and I was in the middle of cutting down all of my 12x12 papers when I realized that is just way too time consuming and kind of unproductive.  I plan to sell the rest of what doesn't sell on my blog at a little craft fair I plan to attend at the end of July.  So if there is anything you've been on the fence about, now's the time to get it.  Hopefully I can sell the rest of my supplies at the fair.  There is still so much!  I'll let you know once I am confirmed for the craft fair.  Hope some of you local people visit me!

I worked on a lot of cards the past few days.  Got this cute Mama Elephant stamp set and thought I'd make a set of cheerful cards.  The background is watercolored with distress inks.  I stamped, colored with Copics and fussy cut the images out.  I like the idea of dies for the images but they are so expensive especially if you aren't going to use the dies much.  I know I only use a stamp set once or twice before it gets set aside to make room for the next cute set.  So for me, the dies are not too economical.

So tell me, what is this animal?  Haha.  I thought he is a raccoon but then my daughter questioned my assumption. 

Obviously a bunny.

Lastly, the monkey.

My son liked the monkey a lot so I made him a corner bookmark for his birthday coming up soon.  Birthday sentiment is from Lawn Fawn.

Okay, still haven't decided what to do next.  Oh, maybe photograph my papers and list them soon.  Or craft. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Great card set! I know what you mean by the expense if dies especially if you don't use the stamp set often. You are so proficient at fussy cutting that you don't need dies...I am practicing but perhaps my hands are not as steady as yours. Anyway, I enjoyed seeing your cards and I'm inspired to improve my fussy cutting.

Oh, ha! I can't tell what that animal is! Pretty cards, can't believe you fussy cut all that out!
Got me, haven't a clue what kind of animal that is. Hmmm, maybe a hybrid raccoon. LOL. Really like your set of cards. So happy and colorful.

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…
