a special happy birthday --

it's my nephew's 6th birthday!  where does the time go?  he wanted a dinosaur birthday party this year.  i don't have any dinosaur stamps -- so, i went in search of a digi stamp.

i love the stamps at Bugaboo -- and i found the perfect dinosaur digi.  i don't use digis (digital stamps) that often - but i love them for situations like this.

this turned out so cute -- sorry the picture isn't that great.

it's hard to tell the size, but it fits in a legal size envelope.

i printed the digi out - measured where i wanted the fold, and scored it.  cut around the dinosaur with an x-acto knife, and used matching colored paper to cover the cut out section on the back of the card. (should have taken a pic -- sorry).

the dinosaur is colored with blender pens and Stampin' Up watercolor crayons.
the sentiment is a new SU stamp set called wacky sentiments.

i love how it turned out!  hope he loves it too ;)

thanks for stopping by!  be sure to stop by again soon!
happy stamping!

jumping back in --

wow.  i didn't realize i haven't written in awhile.  sorry about that.

here's a project i've been working in on -- if your on my facebook page you might have already seen them.  a customer asked for 150 ladybug cupcake toppers for an engagement party -- a picnic theme.

here they all are -- 150 cute ladybug toppers.  cute, right?

but she had a dilemma.  the cupcake stand she was going to use for them didn't have enough room for the toppers on the shelves.  so, i came up with a solution - i stuck half on golf tee pegs --- so this way, they sat flatter, and up off of the frosting.  brilliant -- aren't i?  hehehe --- so half (with the gingham ribbon) stoop upright, and the other half laid flat.

these were simple enough to do -- all the pieces were punched with Stampin' Up punches.  the spots are stickles - glitter glue.

i hope they enjoyed their party -- did i forget to mention she needed them made and shipped to her within 6 days -- got them done, shipped overnight!  i aim to please! :)

thanks for stopping by!

sorry again for being so late in posting --
more coming soon!

happy stamping ---
