Dr. Seuss Thank You's

I have had the wonderful request to create some baby shower thank you cards with a Dr. Seuss theme of cat's hat of The Cat In The Hat book. These are going to be from twin boys Hudson & Owen and that is why the verse on the front of the card says, "Thanks to You For the gift for Two!"

In total there are 25 cards, I cut out Cat's hat using SCAL. I must tell you that this is a favorite program of mine, just for the fact I can design and cut out almost anything. The stars are versamarked and because this is an item that is going to be mailed I choose not to pop dot anything as I didn't want them to be wreaked while in transit.

Thanks for stopping by today,

Teenage Birthday

I always find cards for teenagers so difficult to make, as that is the transition age for things that are, "cool or not cool"! I use so many cutesie stamps that I knew that would not work for this card. 

So what I did was find a really hip and happening image that I could cut on my Circut. This is a new release by SVG cuts, I though the image was very hip, trendy and posh.

I used an older color challenge from the Color Q:

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

More Anniversary Botanicals

Another spin with SU! Botanical Blooms, this is a two-stepping stamp set. I am typically a digital stamper and love to color in the images. But sometimes you have to leave your happy medium and try other things.

A simple card but it looks very pretty, I love the end result. Once again I cased a card, this one by happyscrapper5 and like always I changed it up to my liking.

This is a closer view showing the effect of the flowers with add dimensionals,

Happy Weekend!

Anniversary Blooms

No I haven't disappeared, but I'm sure you all know how it is when the flu hits your household. This flu bug definitely outstayed it's welcome but I'm glad to say I'm feeling crafty so that's a good thing.

Thought I'd take a different take this week and be adventurous and do some two-step stamping. So here I used Stampin' Up! Botanical Blooms. I cased a card by Christine Creations, of course the end result of my card is very much different then her's.

I stamped the flowers and leaves on whisper white card stock and then stamped the outline images with white onto vellum. And punched the bottom edge with SU! scallop trim border.

The color combination is last weeks Color Throwdown #158,
 This is a closer view of the pearlized white ink on the vellum such a pretty shimmer unfortunately the picture does not do it justice.

Thanks for visiting this week,

Angry Birds Invites

 I was asked to make some invitations for a sweet little boy who is turning 5 and loves Angry Birds. So you can guess what the theme of his birthday is all around. I posted a Angry Bird Birthday Card back in May you can view it here. I still haven't found a glue that adheres to the rubber band to make it easier to attach to the card stock, that is the most difficult part of the slingshot.

Happy Birthday Zach!
