Penguin Pal with Scribbles Designs

 Hello.  This weekend was definitely relaxing so I managed to make a few cards.  I wanted to enter a new to me challenge, using their free digi stamp.

So I recently rediscovered Scribbles by Sandy, so I'm featuring the latest Penguin stamp for their Penguin Pals challenge.

I made a couple of these, trying to get a jump start on Christmas cards since last year I didn't have enough.  I put Ranger ink on my Cuttlebug embossing folder - anyone still have a Cuttlebug out there - to make for the debossing effect (I could be completely wrong on that term).  The penguin was colored and cut out.  Card is completely flat for easy mailing.

So I'm now up to three cards for Christmas!!

That's it for today.  Have a wonderful Monday and thank you for stopping by.

The sentiment is from TLC and the snowflakes are from Sizzix.

Thank you for stopping by and taking a look.  Have a wonderful week!

Tiddly Inks Elephant Cards

Hello and happy Friday!  Today I would like to share a couple of cards using adorable elephants!

Both cards feature Fur Reals Animals from Tiddly Inks from Etsy.  A while back I got a few Tiddly digis on sale, and I'm finally getting around to using them.  On this card, the sentiment is cut a few times and glued together for stability and added dimension.
On this one, I made his ground using Ranger inks.  Both the banner and sentiment are from My Favorite Things Sending Sweet Celebration Wishes, and the layout is MFT sketch WSC475.  This ones is not my favorite and I think it's because the chocolate cake just stands out - and not in a good way.

Both cards have the elephants fussy cut and popped up.

So that is my share today and I thank you for taking a look.

These meet the following challenges:  Critter Crazy Challenges: Anything with a Critter, Crafts Galore Encore: Anything Goes, Die Cut Divas: Valentines, and Digi Choosday: Anything Goes.

Meljen's Mouse Valentine Card

 Hello and happy Hump Day!  Today is a particularly cold day, so I've been looking up soup recipes and thinking about what kind of craftiness I can enjoy this evening.  I really am focused on 1) de-cluttering and 2) taking time for myself.  Not really new year resolutions, just changes I would like to accomplish.

Anyway, for today I'm sharing:

I'm not quite sure if this is a Valentine/Galentine card, or a just-because type of card.  But I wanted to color up this little critter from Meljen's Digital Stamps - I'm not sure if she has her own blog anymore, but I found her stamps at Whimsy Stamps.  The sentiment is from Cardz TV Stamps.  I added a bit of ribbon that wrapped a robe purchased from Costco - and I didn't have the heart to toss it with the rest of the packaging.  So a bit of upcycling on this!

Nothing terribly fancy, and a rather simple layout.

So that's it from me.  Thank you for visiting and have a wonderful weekend!

This meets the following challenges:  A Place to Start: Anything Goes, Simon Says: Four Legged Animal, Stamps & Fun = Creativity: Anything Goes, and A Gem of a Challenge: Anything Goes.

Scribbles by Sandy Sunflowers Card

 Hello!  Another week, another card.  I'm on a roll!

Today I would like to share a card using a digi stamp I've had for years.

My favorite flowers are daisies and sunflowers.  I've never been a rose type of gal.  Anyway, the title on this stamp included Scribbles by Sandy - so hopefully this is properly credited.  The sentiment is from My Favorite Things Freshly Picked Bouquet set.  I left my card flat for easy mailing.  A really simple creation, just trying to get in a little crafty time each week.

Thank you for taking a look and have a great week.

Hot Dog Birthday Cards

 Hello and happy 2023!  I'm hoping and praying for a pleasant and productive year, and hopefully one filled with crafty goodness.

Today I would like to share a couple of birthday cards using some "new" stamps and stencils.

Both cards feature Stampin' Up's Hot Dog set, colored up like a piebald wiener dog.  The sentiment on this one is from Taylored Expressions Simple Strips Birthday set.

Both cards have stenciled backgrounds from Taylored Expressions.  This year, I'm hoping to use "new" items I've had but haven't had the chance to delve into.

So that's it for today.  Thank you so much for taking a look - I appreciate it.

My cards meet the following challenges:  Double D Challenges: Anything Birthday, A Perfect Time to Craft: Anything Goes, Crafter's Cafe: Anything Goes, and Crafty Animals: Anything with an Animal.

Stampin Up Artistically Inked Sympathy Cards

Hello and happy Monday.  Today I'm sharing a couple cards made with new-to-me stamps.  I'm trying to use things I have on hand - especially never-been-used items I purchased and haven't gotten around to use!  Am I the only one?

This first card features Stampin' Up's Artistically Inked set for the flowers and Stampin' Up's Petite Pairs for the sentiment.

This coral creation also features the Artistically Inked set and the sentiment is from a past Paper Pumpkin.

I feel I'm particularly bad at creating sympathy cards, but I was on a mission and I think I did ok.

Thanks for taking a look and have a wonderful week!
