Little bit of Crabbie! Snappy Birthday Card

Crab-Snappy Birthday

Here is a card I (Bobbi) created using a few scrapbook items, some you might already have!

I used an old Stampin Up set called (I think) Under the Sea.  I really think if you have a beach theme set it would work just as nicely too!

I stamped my clam and crab on red cardstock and cut the outline of each image.  I used my hole punch to create the eyes of the crab.  White pen to color the clams eyes.

I used a sandy brown paper and a darl brown ink with a stipple brush to create the sand texture on the card and a simple tear of the paper to give it more depth.

Now the sand castle was fun!  I really love it when I can create an image with just using a punch.  

I used my index card punch to create the sand castle, Martha Stewart carries a punch similar to what was used as seen on card.  

I cut the brown card stock 1 1/2 x 2 1/2 and punched only the top section.  I cut another piece 1/2 x 1/2 and punched the topm stippled in a dark brown ink and layered.

I just created a cute card in a snap!

Our project for today is..... 
When we think of summer - we think of baseball.  In honor of summer and baseball, we created this 6x6 spiral bound baseball themed scrapbook.  It's perfect for the little leaguers in our lives!

This is my favorite saying - 'All you need is glove"

Who can think of baseball without the classic song - Take me out to the ball game....  (bet that song is stuck in your head for a while today!!)  We printed this on a word template using our word template tutorial.  Here is the link in case you missed it:

Here is another fun saying 'If you can't stand the heat - you can't play my game"

As a gift for stopping by our blog today - we are re-posting out baseball bat and ball svg files.
