Sister Stamps

Hi!  Thank you everyone for the wonderful comments in my previous post!  I'm still really excited and can't wait til I can share my first TGF post!  I know I have to get back into a regular posting routine.  Still just hard to find time to craft these days.  I spend so much time just driving!  I realized the other day that it takes me more than an hour to pick up my last 2 kiddies from each of their schools in the afternoon.  So by the time I get home, my butt is sore from sitting so long!  I love Friday afternoons when I know I can start coloring and stamping. 

Last night I finished up a set of cards using Sister Stamps new release.  This has got to be my favorite release of theirs.  So much so that I went to buy them at Cute Stuff the day they were released only to find that the one I really love was already sold out!  What the heck?  I guess everyone else loves it too!  But I did complete the set the next day when I found it at J's Knicknacks.  At least I got to spread the love to a couple of my favorite crafty stores!

I went very clean and simple on these since time is a factor these days.  I have to say I love them all so much.

This is Mariko.  She's so cute!  I colored these with my Copics on PTI's white cardstock.  I had forgotten how nice it is to color on this.  I have been using the  X-press it blending paper for a while now which is nice too but different.  The little tag die and sentiment is also from PTI.  I tied on a silky crushed ribbon from Ribbon Carousel and then used some burlap twine (also from Ribbon Carousel) to tie the tag onto the ribbon. 

A little close up.  These stamps always remind me of Cheryl's daughter!

This is Takeo.  Also colored with Copics.  Tied on some burlap twine with a star tag and sentiment.  And all the sentiments were heat embossed in red.  

I think he looks so fun!

This is Miyoko and she is my favorite!!  See, so cute and sassy!  Same process for this card as well.

She has some stickles added to her cupcake and flower.

Sorry, kind of lengthy post.  That is what happens when I don't blog regularly.  And I need to still mention what challenges I'm entering these into!  First is to MarkerPop Challenge #1 -- Hair/Fur coloring (entering Miyoko card, I wasn't sure if there is some limit).  They were previously iCopic and took a break from challenges but now they're back!

And lastly, I wanted to say a special thank you to Handmade Cuties for sending me a cute little beaded charm!  She makes the cutest charms and they are so bright and fun in person!  Please check out her Etsy store HERE.

Okay, I think I'm done.  Thanks for reading!

This is so pretty! I love simple cards where your coloring just stands out! Glad you were able to get the last stamp for your set. And did I read you will be on the TGF DT? If so, congrats!! That's a huge accomplishment. They recognize talent when they see it.

Oh these are cute and you have rocked the coloring! Best coloring I've seen with these images so far! Also love the CAS designs. Cute Stuff - is that your husband's auntie's store? Oh and the magnets - I can't remember where I got them. I know I had to search locally and online for strips and circles that were heavier duty. But it was a while ago, so I can't remember.

Thank You Eva! I just couldn't believe my eyes when I saw these absolutely adorable, hand crafted cards in the mail!!!! I love everything about these cards. The images are sooo cute and the ribbons with the little tags are too sweet. You put so much work into this. I can't thank you enough for your kindness and generosity...and you do this all between driving around and washing muddy sneakers. It means a lot to me. Thank You! Hugs!

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.
