Birthday Delivery Birthday Card for Noah

Well this week I need a Birthday Card for my Grandson Noah who turns 3.  Of Course I had to use my favorite Birthday set from the annual Catalog Birthday Delivery.  The Wolf is my favorite stamp in this stamp he is so cute, so he will be the star of this tri fold Card.

This card starts out as a 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 Whisper White cardstock.   I scored the long side at 2 in, and 6 1/4.  Then choose the color you would like for your solid layering piece, large inside is 4 x 5 1/4, inside panels and outside panels are (one of each) 1 3/4 x 5 1/4 and 2 x 5 1/4.  (I choose different solid colors for this but you can change it up.  Lots of great colors in this suite to choose from.  Then the pattern pieces for the pattern you will need one of each inside and outside panels 1 1/2 x 5, and 1 3/4 x 5.    Then it comes to layering all the pieces together.  After doing these pieces you will cut out large scallop circle and regular circle.  I stamped out the wolfe and colored him with the markers.  you can stamp out the banner and stamp the sentiment or use the balloons. and place him in the circle.  I attached the circle on the left side, but only put glue on half the circle as to not glue the whole circle down because you want the card to open.  You are welcome to watch the video below. 

Here are supplies used.  Store is open 24/7.  www.shanasweets.stampinup.net

Spooky Cat Swapping this Month

I started my Swap 6 group back up this month.  If you can ever participate in swaps they are great!  This was a perfect swap for me because you swap 6 cards for 6 months by the 6th of the month.  Easy Peasy!   I love my team swaps but usually have to make 20-25 cards for that, and don't always feel the love for that.  But I can't rember which team mate it was, but it was on group page that I saw this card,  I varied up the papers, but I loved the idea.  I had to have this punch the moment I saw it, because my daughters nickname is Cat!   This punch will be great outside Halloween, I have seen some great designs colored, stamped, designer paper.  Ideas are really limitless.  But for now having fun with the Spooky Designer Series paper also and made this fun card and lots of Cats!

A2 sized card,  5 1/2 x 8 /12 folded at 4 1/4 of very vanilla. Layer a base of basic black 4 x 5 1/4.  Then build your layer of pumpkin pie 3 3/4 x 5 with 1 1/4  x 5 layer of dsp at the top and a 1 x 5 in that you will stamp with your sentiment, I used trick or treat and the mouse, but Happy Halloween is in the stamp set also.   I tucked this piece up under the dsp, so less than an inch is actually showing.   Then I took the crochet trim across the seam and wrapped securing behind the pumpkin pie.  Then you tape all this to the black.   Now I stamped the cat image from the stamp set on a vanilla card stock and punched it out then punched out 4 more cats from various dsp patterns.  The cat on the dsp will cut with the punch.   I fussy cut a hat from the dsp.  The glue the cats across the bottom, layering them slightly over each other.  Placing the hat on one of them, with a dementuonal.  Below is the video also.

Here will be the supplies used. And the store is always open 24/7.
