Maryland Greetings

Hi There!

I am playing with Paper Smooche's Chubby Chum Pals stamp set.  Specifically the crab.  He is adorable. Maryland is famous for its Blue crabs.  Best. Crab. Cakes. Ever...though the San Francisco Dungeness crab cakes are mighty fine too.  We even have a local baseball team named for the Blue Crab.

The supporting supplies are the Maryland stamp set from CTMH, a greetings stamp set also from CTMH, a stampendous newsprint background stamp, a pretty pink posh die and some googly eyes.  The challenge at The Male Room is to make a masculine card with Red, Blue and one other color that is not a neutral.  I chose yellow naturally (I love yellow). 

So, I spent more time hunting for the googly eyes and a stamp that simply said "Greetings" than putting together this card. None of my season's greetings stamps have a smaller font!  I think that word should be added to many stamp sets that are a collection of single words! If ya know any stamp designers...pass it on!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Cat this is so cute, and wonderfully coloured!

  2. Very, very fun! Great color combo!

  3. Absolutely fabulous, Cat--winner for sure, in my book! PS--North Carolina apparently claims Blue Crabs, too--but I didn't get to taste them. Next trip I'm coming to your place & we can go get some of those crab cakes!

  4. OH, Cat, your card is just too too cute! It will certainly bring a smile to the recipient.

  5. Oh what fun! Great use of The Male room colour theme, thanks for playing.

  6. Had a chuckle at this, GREAT card, only thing is you have made me long for a crab sandwich LOL. Thank you for joining us at the Male Room. Faith DT

  8. Oh my gosh, I love how you paired different stamps to create this fabulous card, Cat! Beautiful coloring on the crab, and those googly eyes just make me smile :)

  9. Love it! The little blue crab is just fabulous and his eyes really made me smile! Great work. Sorry to be so late commenting, and thanks so much for playing along with our colour challenge at The Male Room! Deborah, DT.
