Welcome Baby!

Hello!  Do you ever feel totally unmotivated to create?  That was me last week.  I felt so blah every day and didn't really want to finish any of my cards or make any new ones.  I guess I go through these cycles of being unproductive.  But I did clean the house and vacuum the stairs!  So that was a real plus.  Now I'll be ignoring my house chores for a while.

I made a couple of baby cards using Sister Stamps and a couple of sentiments from Stampin' Up!  I haven't used Stampin' Up! products in a while and was in the process of selling the sets I have.  This set didn't sell so I guess that was good since I was looking for a baby set.

I created a mat look by taping off the edges and using distress inks to watercolor.

Here is the girl version. 


I also made a bunch of doctor related cards again.




I made it easier on myself by printing some of the sentiments.  The images are from Altenew's Doctors Rule.

I'm working on coloring up some more images today.  Hopefully I won't fall into such a long slump again.

Thanks for stopping by!

Super cute babies...love the images and awesome masking!
Seems I'm more unmotivated than ever...I'm so cold all the time I refuse to go into the basement to craft. I'll thaw out by June, lol!

Cute baby cards! The sentiments are cute too! Good idea with the printing, they're probably straighter that way.

all occasion tags

Hello!  I have more tags to share today.  I kept these simple too to be used on most any occasion.  They have no sentiments on them. I used MFT's cute Birdie Brown Bitty Bears stamp set.  These were on my wish list for a while and I kept going back and forth about purchasing them especially because I wanted the dies to cut them out too and those were very expensive!  Geez, remember the old days when we used to fussy cut everything out by hand? This is the next 6 tags.  There's also a cute bear with a Santa hat that I didn't include in the photos.  This was a pretty quick project since I kept the bears white!  Not much coloring on these tags but they are still cute and colorful. I thought I was going to be doing more stamping but I've actually gone on to crochet more!  I've made 3 more crochet projects that I'll share soon.  Sometimes I do get the urge to color something but these days it's so much easier to pick up some yarn and my hook and crochet

Snowman gift card holder

Hi!  I was planning to post this last night but I was just too tired to write or think of complete sentences.  It's been a busy week with the boys on Fall break and still trying to finish up a bunch of crafts.  I have been trying to make some crocheted crafts to put in my Etsy shop and finally I'm done with one.  It's a crocheted snowman that can hold a gift card or anything actually that is small enough to fit in the pouch.  The pattern is designed by ChiWei Ranck of One Dog Woof and can be found HERE . Here's the little snowman with his arms folded over in the front to look like he is hugging the card.  I added this fun card that I stamped.  You can definitely add in a gift card too behind this card. The gift card reaches under his nose. This is how the little opening of the pouch looks.  I hope I can make more of these little guys.  These would be so cute for teachers and I think it would be easy to put a little wire through the hat and then use it as

coffee cup shaped cards

Hi!  I think after this post I may need a little nap!  My right shoulder is actually feeling worn out from all the typing and photo editing I've been doing lately.  And this cooler weather is making me drowsy.  It's getting cold here already! I made a bunch of these coffee shaped cards using a die from Honey Bee Stamps .  It's a cute coffee set but the die is extra long so it would probably help to have a longer platform to diecut.  I just have the standard sized one so I would pass it through once in my Big Shot and then rotate the cardstock and die carefully to cut the other end.  Manageable but the longer platform would be more convenient! I embossed the front of the card with some pretty snowflakes.  I think this is a Sizzix embossing folder.  And then stamped the coffee sleeve with some Lawn Fawn stamps. This is the inside.  The gift card slot does not come with this coffee cup die set.  I cut that opening with one of the dies from MFT's gift card dies.
