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.

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…
