Saturday is my favorite so, I want to share a card I loved making with dies from Frantic Stamper.  This was such fun and actually got a reaction from my family (they seldom show much interest in my cards).  Sheldon Cooper (Big Bang Theory) was the inspiration for this card. I used the new T-shirt die (FRA-DIE-10430) from the "Proud of Dad" release and a couple of older dies, Heroic Symbols (FRA-DIE-09861) and Double Fishtail Labels (FRA-DIE-09735). 

Here's a bit closer look.  The sentiment was computer generated.

Be sure and check out the Frantic Stamper pager here on Facebook and Instagram - franticstamper.  Thanks for stopping in and helping me celebrate Saturday!  Happy St. Patrick's Day to you all.

TCP Sneaky Peek Day 4

I'm certain by now you know it's sneaky peek week at The Cat's Pajamas.  I hope you've seen the wonderful cards made by Julie, Nancy and Lynn.  If you haven't it is definitely worth the look.  The release of 3 fab stamp sets and 3 dies is set for March 20.

I had a great time putting together these cards.  The first card features the beautiful butterfly dies from the Butterfly Trio CutUps.  The sentiment is from Simply Stacked Sentiments -

The next card features the Spring Tag, Oval Scroll Duo Dies and Sponsored By stamp set.  The floral rounded portion of the tag was cut with the oval using the Oval Scroll Duo Die-

I love making cards that require a bit of thinking.  The gorgeous Spring Tag Duo Die made me think of a secret place, so I knew I wanted it to open to reveal one of the tiny houses from Special Delivery -

The gate swings on paper "hinges".  This was fun to create.

The last two cards feature the sassy cats from What the Froth (LOVE THESE GUYS!) and the Oval Scroll Duo Die.  I also used Watercolor Basics, a sentiment from Home is Where the Cat Is.

The background on this card is actually coffee stained.  I LOVE this sentiment!

Here's a quick look at all the new goodies!



That's it for my peeks today.  Now it's over to you for a chance to win!

Just leave a comment on the featured designer's blog and their Instagram account (@brendanh50). Winners will be announced on The Cat's Pajamas Blog and Facebook page each day. You can keep up with the designer of the day at The Cat's Pajamas blog.  The very talented Deborah is up for tomorrow so stay tuned.

Butterfly Teddy

At Sasayaki Glitter we are rewinding and shining the spotlight on some of the older images.  I just love this darling whimsical image and thought she would be a perfect for a gift tag.  Here is Butterfly Teddy currently available in the store here -

I colored her up with Copic markers, added some Nuvo drops and Stickles for a little dimension.  This tag die was the perfect size to frame her up.  For more scoop on the Sasayaki Glitter rewind, head on over to the blog!

World's Best Father

I have a card to share using more of the awesome dies from Frantic Stamper's new release, "Proud of Dad".  This card features 3 of the new die sets - Worlds Best Circle and Frame (FRA-DIE-10421), To My Father (FRA-DIE-10420) and T-Shirt (FRA-DIE-10430).  

I dry embossed the kraft cardstock before popping the T-shirt on.  The Worlds Best Circle and Frame (FRA-DIE-10421) and To My Father (FRA-DIE-10420) were cut 3 times and layered for a bit of extra dimension.

Cute Bun

Easter is early this year, so I chose to use this darling little Sasayaki Glitter image, Cute Bun to get an Easter card done.  I loved coloring her up and surrounding her with Springy embellishments.

I colored her with Copic Markers and layered her on to some Bo-bunny papers, added a little baker's twine and some fringed ribbon and she's all ready for Easter. 

Don't forget to join all the fun on Facebook and chances to win Sasayaki Images. 

Thanks so much for dropping by.  I hope your weekend is/was great!
