I need to catch up!

Hello!  I've been neglecting my blog!  And I don't want to do that since we've put a lot of work into posting these past years.  But just some days don't have much energy to take photos and then blog.  This is my catch up post.  Sharing some cards I've made this summer which isn't a lot because summer seemed to be a busy time with the kiddies.

I made a few pet sympathy cards using Taylored Expressions Care & Comfort.



Just used a very simple design since I like keeping sympathy cards minimal.

I love Lawn Fawn's punny sentiments!  So I got this one called Stinkin' Cute.  I paired it with the tree stump from the Mom & Me set.  I have some other punny ones that I haven't even inked up and colored yet.  I have to get going on making more cards!

Here is another Lawn Fawn one.  I've had this stamp set, Life is Good, for so long and didn't use it until this past month or so.  He's such a cute crab!

This is the last card I've made recently using Birdie Brown's Beary Special Birthday stamp set and that really neat birthday die.  I sponged on some balloons using MFT's balloon stencil too.  This stamp set is so adorable.

I've also got some really pretty confetti recently.  Some I've listed just today.  I have some new snowflakes I'll be listing soon too in my shop.  I hope to share some photos of them tomorrow.  I also want to share some of the things I've been crocheting!  I want to add some of those to the shop too.

Thank you for stopping by and sticking around for this post.

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…
