Felt Finger Puppets Card

Just popping in with another fun project. This one is inspired by Jennifer McGuire Ink’s Share Handmade Kindness project featuring children this week,


and by Unity Stamp Company’s {Be Inspired} color challenge:


I’ve been wanting to make these finger puppets for my friend’s daughter ever since I got this stamp set from Unity, so I finally sat down and tried it…


Argh… my teal looks more blue than green in these pics. Having a teal elephant was fun… with his trumpeting trunk, he’s a real tattle-teal! (ok, we groan, but the little ones giggle!)

When I first stamped these cuties onto the felt with Staz-On, They didn’t really stand out:


Hand stitching is NOT my forte, but I think they turned out cute enough for little fingers to have fun!

They were mounted on the card with just a glue dot so they could be removed easily.


I think she’ll have lots of fun playing with her new little friends!

Materials used:

  • Unity Stamp Company stamp sets: Roar. Grr. Eek.; Meow. Purr. Baa; Whooty (All You Need is LOVE sentiment)
  • Kunin Group Rainbow ClassicFelt: Walnut Brown, Peacock, Ruby & Smoke
  • CPE Brown Felt
  • Staz-On Solvent Ink: Jet Black and Opaque Cotton White
  • Judikins Pen & Fabric Inc Cleaner
  • Ranger Stickles:

Sending Coffee – a Hug in a Mug + Blog Candy!

Good afternoon and welcome back to another Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop card.


TLC Creations, one of the sponsors of the hop, kindly created these fab free digis so I HAD to use them in a fall colored card! : ) This will be a great card to put with a special bag of brew or gift card for someone!


Materials used:

  • TLC Creations freebie digi word art (that you can find HERE)
  • Spellbinders dies: Scalloped Labels One & Petite Labels One
  • Simon Says Stamp die: Sending
  • DCWV card
  • Recollections cardstock
  • Pebbles Inc Pearlescent chalks – brown
  • Misc. adhesives, ribbon and button

I am entering this card in the following hops and challenges:


***********    giveaway now closed    ***************

Finally, for those of you patient enough to read this far, I have put together a small blog candy package as a thank you to those who comment on my blog and my followers. Of course, it’s coffee related:


  • A 4″x8″ magnetic list pad ‘Life begins after coffee’
  • Some goodies for your next card, perhaps the winter coffee hop!
    • Some balsa wood embellies
    • a foot of pink ribbon with brown coffee/tea cups
    • a grab bag stamp from Unity Stamp Company

The details: If you would like to be in the drawing to win this package, please comment ONCE on this very post and TELL ME YOUR FAVORITE HOT BEVERAGE (so I can serve it to you if you appear to be upset. LOL!). If you become a follower of my blog or are already following, you may comment a second time letting me know for an additional chance. I will use Mr. Random Org. to choose a winner shortly after the commenting closes on October 4th, 2015, at 3pm Pacific time, 6pm Eastern and it will be announced here on my blog. It is a pet peeve of mine that some people have giveaways and wait weeks or never announce their winners, so I will do my best to be prompt. Please be sure to check back! If the winner doesn’t contact me within 72 hours, another winner will be chosen.

That’s it for today. I will have more cards for this hop and have more blog candy to come, so be sure and come back (or subscribe so you don’t miss a post!).

Have a lovely evening!
