Fat Bear Stamps

Hi all!  I have a non-DT project to share with you today. 

So I love these pierced tags from MFT!  Love the banner dies and these giftcard holder dies too.  So fun to put these giftcard holder tags together.  You all understand the sentiment means Be Merry and not Merry B, right?  Sometimes I wonder about my hubby.  It's kind of obvious to me but it wasn't to him.

I also made matching envelopes with my new Envelope Punch Board.  I kind of made them look like those manilla envelopes by folding them a little differently.

Here is the front of the envelopes.  These are stamps from Forever Friends.  I call them Fat Bear stamps.  I used to have these fat bears as stuffed toys, on stationary and cards and cups too but now can't find them here at all.  They have them online but from England.  I bought this stamp from 7 Kids and while they are cute, the quality isn't so great.  Kind of disappointed in that and happy I only ordered this one stamp.

I traced over the stamped image again with my copic multiliner because it just didn't stamp very nicely.  But isn't he very cute? 

Thanks so much for reading!

Awwwww, super cute! I love those bears! I used to see them at the Hallmark store...20+ years ago... Ha! I never thought of Merry B, maybe cuz I already saw the stamp set before. Most people will probably go straight for the giftcard anyhow... Cute envelopes too! I think the quality of clear stamps can be variable, I found these super cheap ones at Michaels on clearance, like no wonder, cuz the stamp was kind of soft and squishy, and didn't even stick to the block that well. That was a good idea to trace it, I will have to try that.

Gift card holders are the perfect gift wrap for something small. These are awesome!
Too bad about the quality of the bear stamp, hopefully you didn't pay too much for it.

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.
