Hi! Well I know I said I'd only be entering one time but I did end up making one more card for the Innovation category of MFT's Challenge. I had wanted to do something with magnets because my kids have these tiny magnets in their bead box. I think they are for making bracelets so I grabbed couple of them. I wasn't sure what I was making but then thought of something the other night. These magnets are oval in shape and they have a hole in the middle to thread string, I think.
This is the card I made featuring Birdie Brown's Happy Hedgehogs. Love, love, love Birdie Brown's images and cards! I did some masking with the larger hedgehog to sit on the log which I also lengthened. I used the stitched border background again from Blueprints 25. The yellow sun is cut from the Stitched Arched dies and I blended with distress oxide.
Also used the mini cloud stencil to blend in the background using distress oxide. Under the log I used the skinniest fishtail flag die to create an opening. I wanted to create some movement but not show all the openings.
Here's a close up of them sitting apart. You might notice something sticking out from under the yellow sun.
When you pull on the tab, the smaller hedgehog slides over and clicks to the larger one because I used the magnets underneath them. The magnet under the large hedgehog is stationary and I tied some thin fishing line to the other magnet under the smaller hedgehog through the hole that it had. The sentiment is also stamped onto the tag which is from MFT as well. The tiny diecut on the tag is from Tag Builders Blueprints 5.
They're so cute together! You can slide the tag back under and slide the smaller guy back to the right.
This is under all the cute stuff! Three layers of dimensional tape!
I made a short little video using my phone. I had to hold my phone in one hand and pull the tab.
That is definitely it for me. Thanks so much for stopping by!
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
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
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.
