And Many Mower

This week I needed a birthday card for my brother in law - I like to try and personalize cards - and my BIL loves working in their yard - keeping the lawn mowed, wood chopped and leaves raked!  
So I reached for my lawn mower stamp from Hambo Stamps.  I colored it with Copic markers and my Silver Wink of Stella and layered it over my new Stitched Landscape die from Poppy Stamps and some die cut grass from MFT (partially 'mowed'!).
I added the sun and sentiment flag with pole - both dies from Lil Inker Designs, and two little cardinals - dies from In the Meadow from PTI.  
I forgot to take a photo of the inside as I had to get this right in the mail (drat!) -  but I stamped MAY YOU HAVE MANY MOWER (cute right??) from Hambo Stamps along with another die cut strip of grass. 

I'm linking my card tothe following challenges:

My stamping friend Loll - suggested I enter this into the Happy Little Stampers CAS challenge - Die cuts

Be Mime, Be Happy, and a Berry Basket

Here are a few more projects that I made this week for the DTGD Challenges over on Split Coast.

 I absolutely LOVE this cute little Mime from Hambo Stamps.   I saw it on someones card month's ago and immediately ordered it -  then he sat - silent as a mime (!) - in my craft room - begging to be let 'out of the box' !  So here he is on my tag!!   I colored him with Prismacolor markers and layered him onto a die cut tag from  Papertrey Ink with foam tape.  I stamped the sentiment that comes with him - on a small wonky rectangle Nestability.   Cutie cute - n'est pas??!
I made this simple little 'bee happy' card using a mini chicken wire stencil from The Crafters Workshop and stamps from L'il Buddies set from Waltzingmouse.
and finally here's my summery Berry Basket.  I bought this basket die from PTI so long ago and never got around to making one (how often do I do that when I buy things??!!)  This is SO perfect for summer time gifting!   I stamped a woodgrain background from Waltzingmouse onto the 4 sides of the basket before assembling it.  I wove a piece of wrinkled seam tape through one of the rows of openings and adhered pieces of paper doilies to the edges.
This sweet jam jar, lid and sentiments are from Jar Fillers - Jam Packed from Waltzingmouse.  Claire also has FREE cut files for this set in the WMS shop.  I used the jar cut file here and paper pieced the lid.

And here's a view just to show you that I continued the woodgrain stamping onto the bottom pieces of the berry basket - just to make it look really finished off!  The basket is 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" so would actually fit a jar of two of jams or jellies!  (I'd put a square of cardboard on the bottom to give it more strength if I filled it with heavy items.)

We're off to a Christening on this lovely summer Sunday afternoon.  Hope you are enjoying your weekend!

What's Up?

I've got a few CAS challenge cards to share today -  I've been away from the craft room for a bit with all the Easter Prep last week!

First here's a cute little 'hair raising' stamp from Picture Show for the CASology cue card  - UP - the What's Up stamp is from Hambo Stamps.  I drew the edge with a Fine Point Micron Pen.  I used the colors (red, yellow, blue) from the SCS Color challenge.

Up next is a card for three challenges -  Muse Challenge #11, Less is More - Scallops and 

I die cut the front with a Spellbinders Label 18the text and sending thanks stamps are from Waltzingmouse - they are stamped on the inside of the card- seen through the die cut-out on the front..  The big scallop edge was made with a punch from EK Success and the small scallop edge was made with a punch from SU.

My final card was made using  the CAS(E) this sketch
The stamp is from Papertrey Ink, and the cute polka dot mini bag is from Impress.  I tucked a Starbucks gift card inside it.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
