sympathy card

Hello!  Is it cold and rainy where you are?  It is here and has been this whole day.  It makes me want to crawl back into bed and take a nice nap!  I have been feeling a little uninspired these past few days.  Maybe the weather has something to do with it. 

Today, I have a sympathy card to share.  I had to make a few recently so I thought I'd add a couple to my shop too.  It's sometimes kind of sudden when you need a sympathy card and I like the idea of giving something that is handmade instead of store bought. 

I stamped the sentiment from Winnie & Walter's the Big, Bold & Comfort.  I think this is the only set you'll need when you make sympathy cards!  It has literally so many word combinations you can make.  Once I stamped the sentiments, I went back in with my Copic multiliner to fill in the words so that it is nice and dark.

The floral accent is also from a Winnie & Walter set called Addie's Blooms.  It is nice and simple.  I colored it in with some light Copic purples and accented it darker with a Prismacolor pencil because I didn't want the marker colors to run through to the other side of the kraft cardstock.

In the end, I like that it is simple but still very thoughtful.

Okay, hopefully I'll have more cards to share soon.  I did finish one today even though I was feeling very sluggy.  Haha, ever feel like that?  Or is it just me?

Thanks so much for stopping by!

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…
