Your Number is Up!

We’re back with more fun from The Cat’s Pajamas!  

Today’s set, Your Number is Up,  is so fun because it can count anything!  Anniversaries, Birthdays, years, any special event in numbers!  And, it also has a die set created just for it so it has extra creative possibilites.  

First off I created an Anniversary card for my parents using some fun floral papers from Crate Paper (14) as my inspiration.  I stamped all the numbers,  then also added some of the die cut numbers from  dp over top to give it a really boho feel.  I also took the “porthole” frame from the Framed Up 2 Dies and added some partial framed circles,  and the inside of the porthole to the page in random ways to give it that ecclectic feel.  I also cut out some banners from the dp to add on.  Some cute sequins and enamel dots, twine and lace finish off the outside.  

And inside I stamped the Anniversary banner, added some paper and washi tape to accent.  

Then, my son had a BD party for his best buddy from school this past weekend.  He loves red, and the party was a swimming party, so I thought it would be fun to create a nautical design.  This time I took the whole number plate die and cut out a panel for the front of my card popping it up onto designer paper that has this sea-side feel (Fancy Pants Down by the Shore). 

Then I added the port hole/buoy from the Framed Up 2 dies, with some twine around it.  

And below is the inside.  

Aren’t the dies great?  

Check out the rest of the Cat Pack who are playing along with this set at The Cat’s Pajamas Blog today.
