Nautical Snoopy Card


 I have been looking for Peanuts or Snoopy stamps with a nautical theme.  Haven't been able to find any.  But I got lucky at our local outlet store.  While looking through the books section, I found a Snoopy coloring book with the perfect nautical image in it.  Scanned the image into my computer, colored the image in Gimp.  Then opened all the pieces including the By The Sea Papers (Designs by dani from Snap Click Supply) in Silhouette Studio.  Printed them and cut out with my Cameo.  This is for the teenage boys at the children's charity.

AMB Fox

This sweet little fox and the fun pattern papers are from AMB Illustrations on Etsy.  I cropped one of the foxes from the paper and used it as my main image.  Then I printed and cut out all the pieces with my Silhouette Cameo.  Embossed the frame with a Cuttlebug embossing folder to give it some texture.  Fussy cut some flowers from the left over scraps of the back ground paper and glued them on the corners.  This is for the little girls at the Cards For Hospitalized Kids Charity.

By The Sea Card

I am working on another package of cards for the children's charity and have lots of cards for the girls in the box, but very few cards for the boys.  I selected a nautical theme for some cards which I thought would work well for the older boys.  This kit is called By The Sea.  Bought it last week at the One Buck Wednesday Sale at Snap Click Supply.  Used the red stripe frame, the banner and the lighthouse from the elements pack and the map paper from the paper pack.  Traced and cut out all the pieces with my Silhouette Cameo.
