Back to School Nerdy Kitty

Only a couple more weeks and the kids go back to school, yahoo! And since it's almost the end of August that means summer is almost over and time to think about fall. I know many of you don't want to but Thanksgiving, Halloween and Christmas are already in the stores.

I haven't taken part in a challenge in a very long time and saw this one at SVG Cutting Files I thought I would attempt it. Now the rules are-- anything with fall colors and it had to include one of there cut files as the main focus. I loved this nerdy cat slider and he instantly made me see my kitty, he is so mischievous some days and a big trouble maker.

The gable box is only 2"x 2"x 3.5"- big enough to put a few, "Get me through the first day back treats" for the teacher!

I had fun playing along!! Have a great week and thanks for stopping by,

Whalecome, New Baby

I originally saw a version of this card on Pinterest so I knew wanted to CASE it with the stamp set that I owned. You can view it on the Papertrey Ink Forum here, I only owned the Stampin! Up set Oh Whale.

Here's how I made my card, I stamped the crumb cake card stock panel with whisper white ink whales and heat set them with an embossing gun. I stamped a bashful blue whale onto whisper white card stock and cut it out with the happy whale clearlits die through the cuttlebug. I then stamped the verse from the friendly phrases set onto bashful blue card stock and cutout a banner shape. I pop dotted the banner, whale and one of the pacific point(blue) hearts. The hearts were random sized punches I had on hand.
