can't bear to be without you

Hello!  I am back today to share another card that I have listed in my Etsy shop.  It is another bear card but I love the bear trend too!  And the sentiments are so sweet!

So these 2 bears are from Birdie Brown's Birthday Bears stamp set which is available from My Favorite Things.  The sentiments are also from that set.  The tree stump and the sentiment on the tree is from Lawn Fawn's Mom & Me set.  I was using both stamp sets making some cards when I realized the little bear would be cute sitting on the tree looking at the big bear.  And that's how I came up with this card.

I love it when I can mix and match images/sentiments from different companies and stamp sets.  I created the background by blending some distress inks.  I think I need to invest in more colors but really if you're on a budget you really don't need many colors, just the basics to create a background.

I used a Spellbinder's circle die to make a template for the sun.  The images were stamped, colored, fussy cut and glued onto the background.

I have been trying to get back into card making mode but I guess I need something like an impending deadline to get my butt into gear.  All I want to do now is take a nap! 

Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a great weekend!

Your card looks so professional. Now I need to get that stamp set...hehehe! I love the background. Besides mixing the two stamp sets...clever, I noticed you made a great shadow under the stump which anchored everything. You have excellent card making skills.

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!
