Sprinkle a little twinkle

Hi!  So after making my "brown" card in the previous post, I felt a need for some color.  Hehe.  I think this card came out bright and fun.  It is for a couple of challenges. 

The first is a new challenge blog that I came across called Sweet Stamping Pixies Challenge.  The theme for the first challenge is spring and you have to use a pixie, fairy or sprite stamp.

I also used The Greeting Farm's SCS Saturday Sketch #8.

I used TGF's Fairy Eva.  Hehe.  Of course you have to buy the stamps that have the same name as you.  I think this may be the first time I colored her up, though I have stamped her before.  She also now has a mini me in TGF's Fairy Princess clear stamp set.  That would be cute if they were on the same card like a mommy and a daughter.

I did some masking with Fairy Eva.  Also made the sky using PTI's cloud die.  I love how soft the sky turned out.  The sentiment is also from the Fairy Princess set.  I lightly colored in the edges of her wings and added stickles.

Well, today is the last day before the kids go back to school tomorrow.  And it's back to early wake up days so no more late night crafting for me.  I really enjoyed staying up late to craft.  I better not get too carried away blogging today either since I am doing laundry again and got a pot of corned beef on our small stove.  I don't want to forget about them! 

Thanks for reading!

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

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

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.
