Thank You Cards (Sister Stamps)

Hello!  I recently made 12 Thank You cards for my daughter's Lego Robotics Team to send out to their guest speakers.  She's at a new school and is on a new team.  Hopefully they'll do okay this season.  Anyway, this is about the time that my Big Shot broke!  So I was kind of bummed cause I wouldn't be able to use any fancy die cuts.  I still have my older Spellbinders Wizard so I've been using that but it doesn't cut the intricate designs as well and it probably would work better with a metal shim which I don't have.  I did notice my Big Shot was harder to turn and would seem like it was getting stuck.  Well, one night it did get stuck.  Plates and die and cardstock and all.  My hubby had to pry it loose.  The good thing is that it's still covered by warranty so Sizzix is mailing me a new handle with instructions on how to change it out.  I hope it works!  Otherwise I may be looking for a new machine.

So I tried to make the cards simpler in design since I had to make so many.  This first bunch I used Sister Stamps.

This is one of their newest stamps called BFFs.  Aren't they super cute?  The sentiment is from PTI. 

This one is Yoshimi.  I love that these stamps are so fast to color up and so cute too!

Here's Ayako.  I had a hard time matching the colors of her kimono to the paper.  But I think I finally got it.

I'll be sharing some of my other Thank You cards next time.  Thanks for reading and have a happy Sunday!

These are totally adorable!! I love each one!

My Cuttlebug handle keeps coming off!! I have to re-screw it back on with an allen wrench every so often! Does that mean we craft too much?! lol! I really don't want to have to buy a new one, but I can't live without it!
Hello Eva~
Your cards turned out really pretty with or without no Big Shot.. I'm glad your handle is covered under warranty too - yippee! Any who back to your TU cards, love the coloring and they are just perfect, cute sentiment and I really like these images simple and not overwhelmed with so many blooms... To me it throws the focal point of the images off.... Lovely coloring.. Check mark!

Oh Eva, these are adorable. Such sweet images. I think the paper matches the Kimono perfectly.

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.

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
