Hog Heaven

Finally took a moment to make the card I've had in my head ever since I saw the Love Cynthia Happy Pals stamps.  I mixed her with some fab MFT and designer paper to create an adorable scene. OMG, I'm so loving it! PLUS, she's on an Action Wobble so shakes her little bum whenever I'm around. LOL.

Quick post today with cats and fishies! I mean, how could I not? The central portion of the tank is cut out and lifted with foam tape for dimension.  I'm fully expecting to see one of those cats dip a paw. I have another idea for depth but not sure when I'll fit that in. Too many ideas, too few hours. The background is washi. I wanted a pop of color, perhaps because the weather here in the PNW is still so blah.

Shake Your Hair

Some crafty gal pals and I had a great time Saturday shaking our hair and then some. Love you two! I managed to make 3 cards, including this one.

I just picked up some mini Action Wobbles--the mini size is perfect for my cute scenes! Here Bridget the Bergen is on a wobble with a stencilled disco background.  Bridget is my favorite Troll character, especially when she's all glammed up and going to 70s town. LOL!

I decided to make it a shaker for even more shaking goodness.  Doubly interactive!!!

Cards in Envy Motherly Love Challenge

Our Cards in Envy challenge for you this round is to showcase motherly love. I immediately thought of the otter stamps that are all the rage--sooooo cute!

I created the water by using a waves coverplate die as a mask, moving it from place to place and using a couple of different shades of Distress Ink for interest.  The otter mama and baby are stamped on the background then the hugs diecut is raised for interest.  White on white details up top finish off the card.

The Details: MFT Hugs die and Otterly Love You, Queen and Company Waves die used as mask, Distress Ink Mermaid Lagoon and Tumbled Glass, PTI clouds die, Impression Obsession bird die, Copics

Happy Birthday, Miss Laura!

Happy birthday to my crafty friend, Laura Norris! We're having a celebratory hop in her honor so feel free to hop along for a bit of inspiration. You should have gotten here from Kimberly and are on your way to Tonya.  Enjoy!

For my card I made a cute little scene using some Avery Elle coordinating sets. They thought of everything when they made these. Seriously, everything. Notice the sidewalk/stoop? That's a flower box upside down. Or are the flower boxes upside down sidewalks? The mind boggles.
