Penguin Love

Hi!  Cheryl has a post below this too.  I made this kind of last minute until 2 in the morning.  I don't know what I was thinking.  Usually I don't stay up that late to make a card.  I was feeling kind of restless again and thought I should make something since I haven't for a while, and I wanted to participate in Claudia & Co.'s tag challenge too. 

I used Puddle Jumpers Winter Ella from Claudia & Co. because my daughter has a love for penguins.  I didn't get a chance to make her a card with this stamp at Xmas time so I figure now is a good time.  I know it's kind of Xmas-y but I think it would be good for Valentine's too.  

Tag is a Spellbinders die and the snowflakes were cut in felt with Die-namics dies from MFT.  If you look closely, there is a whole lot of shine on the card.  Maybe a bit too much.  I wanted to try the Frost Shimmer Spritz.  That is mostly on the red tag.  I also sprayed on the Sparkle Shimmer Spritz but it really shot out all over Ella.  There is also some Stickles on the snowflakes and white felt heart that I just cut out myself.  

There's the little penguin that my daughter loves so much!

Thanks for reading!  Have a great week!

Your card is adorable! When you first said penguin - I thought "huh, what penguin?", lol! There he is. And just FYI - I tried commenting before, but for some reason, the comment box likes to jump around, or I'm going crazy, lol.
Very sweet card. Great use of the baker's twine. I really like how you tucked your tag behind it. Happy to have you at Claudia & Co. Come back soon!

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

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

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.
