I Can't Stop w/the Crabs...... Help Me!!!
Oh man.... I can't put this set away. I'm having so much fun.
This time, I masked the crab and stamped the party hat on him. You just stamp him out on copy paper (or better yet, a Post-It note), cut it out, lay it over your image on your card stock, then stamp the hat. Remove the paper and you've got a crab with a hat! Don't throw away that piece though... put it with your stamp set, and you won't have to always take the time to cut one out.
The little circles are made with a 5/8 inch punch and the 1/2 inch circle punch. All images are colored with my aquapainter. Background is cool caribbean and real red card stock ran through the Cuddlebug and embossing folders. The crab image and the little circle images are on dimensionals. The crab's eyes are a big round glob of crystal effects. So cute in person!
This one is pretty similar to the above, I just switched the layout around a bit and added some color to the cool caribbean embossed piece with different sized circle punches. I used the slot punch to make a little slot to run the ribbon through and also added crystal effects to the crab's eyes.
Snappy Birthday was stamped in real red on caribbean then punched out with the word window punch and attached with real red brads.
Okay.... I will try and move on. Well, I have two more colored in and ready to go on cards... so after that, I will move on. LOL
Hope you all have a great weekend! Thanks for making time to stop by for a visit. Thanks especially for the comments and emails about trash digging! You all made me smile HUGE and it felt great to know I wasn't the only one that thought about digging in the trash. You'll be happy to hear that Miss Birthday Crab did not get tossed away. WHEW! And, no, I did not come back home with her. I think she has a happy home. :)
