August Group Projects ~

Mojo Monday & Saturday Scrappers
This card is CASE from Convention, as it was one of our Make & Takes using the Affection Collection stamp set. I did change the color palate slightly. I really like this stamp set and I am sure I will use it again come Valentine’s Day.  

Frightening Feline
Okay, please tell me what is so “frightening” about this Feline? If you ask me she (cause I am thinking all ‘Kats’ are she’s) is pretty darn dazzling with her Rhinestone collar and eyes! She was stamped and embossed with Tangerine Tango ink and powder and yes with the new firm foam pads you can emboss without using VersaMark ink.
She is sitting on top of a ‘wall’ of Howlstooth & Scaringbone DSP (who comes up with these names – I don’t know, but would love that job), and a piece of black 1/8” Taffeta ribbon. The moon behind her is old retired SU paper, but I loved the color of it – it reminded me of a Harvest Moon.
If you like this Halloween card, then don’t forget to check out the great Stampin’ Up!

Happy Birthday Elephant
This is another card inspired by a Make & Take project from Convention as well, but completely different, hehehe.
I just LOVE him! So impressive in size, but fun and whimsical with his Birthday Hat. How cute is he? Okay, yes, the elephant is a he and the cat was a she….that is just how I call them.
I saw this technique of the mirror image from another SU demonstrator and loved it. Its really was simple. You use a piece of window sheet to stamp on and then transfer it to your already stamped image.  I also used to make this card is the World Spectacular DSP, the ever so popular Paper Piercing Tool, Mat, and Essentials Pack. Then cut out with coordinating Apothecary Accents Framelits. The base card stock is Cherry Cobbler with Island Indigo alongside the DSP.
Saturday Scrappers

My theme this month for Saturday Scrappers was summer inspired. Remember, for scrapbook pages you typically do them AFTER the event once you have your pictures. For cards, you need to do them BEFORE the event so you can mail them to your peeps.
So, I did Fourth of July and Summer Fun pages. I used Real Red and Pacific Point for the 4th of July pages – I like how the blue pops a little bit more. Along with the base color, I used First Edition Specialty and Polka Dot Parade DSP.

Staying with the bright colors for my Summer Fun page, I used Daffodil Delight (can’t get much brighter), with Rich Razzleberry, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, and more Pacific Point. The DSP is again Polka Dot Parade with a strip of Summer Smooches. I can see fun in the sun pictures added to your pages that will represent your summer fun!

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Super cute card! It's an adorable cat - I think the frightening part is supposed to be the words making up the critter. Thanks for entering your card in my blog hop!
