Lobster Birthday Card


Happy Tuesday! I can't believe it's the last week of May, it seems the weeks are flying by. This week at Cardz 4 Guyz the challenge is to use Gingham/Checks/Plaid. Hopefully, this theme will make it easy to create a masculine card. To create this Lobster Birthday Card I used the paper stack called Adventure Bound by Stampin' Up! (only available until June 2, 2015) the By the Tide stamp set for the lobster and the sentiment is from the retired hostess Morning Meadow stamp set. The colors used are: Sahara Sand, Cajun Craze, Mossy Meadow, Chocolate Chip and Whisper White. I've used the sketch challenge PP246 at The Paper Players for the card design. That's it!

We hope you can join us this week at Cardz 4 Guyz. Click here to see more inspiration from the design team. I can't wait to see what you create.

Helping me clean my desk is Mr. Tazzy. His idea of cleaning is knocking everything onto the floor. If given the opportunity he will hide my stamps in his special places. He loves anything that will fit under the pantry door. When I'm not crafting I have to place large sacks on top of my desk to keep him from playing.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

  2. What an awesome male card - I love the lobster stamp! I don't think I've seen a lobster stamp before! Lobster is big business around here - a lot of people make their living fishing lobster. It's so expensive I never eat it any more. By the way, I didn't realize you had a new kitty - I totally missed this! Mr. Tazzy is a beautiful boy! Congratulations on your new fur-baby! Looking forward to seeing more kitty cards from you in the future!

  7. Love your lobster card, Andrea! You really make me want to bust this stamp set out right now and get inky with it. Your color combo is so perfect and I love the clean design. Wow! But I have to say that Mr. Tazzy kind of steals the show with his cuteness! My kitties like to “help” in my stamp room, too. Thank you so much for playing along with my sketch this week at The Paper Players! :)
