Birthday Fishes

Happy Wednesday! I am spending the day cleaning --- which is not as bad as it sounds!

Just a reminder: You have until tomorrow night to enter the Shadowbox giveaway...you can find the details HERE!


Today I have a card featuring some of the new Paper Smooches stamps! In case you didn't know....the amazing Kim Hughes started her own line of stamps and they are whimsical, clever and so FUN!

I designed this card awhile ago for a call and forgot to post it. So here it is:
I cut the card shape from some patterned paper and inked the edges. The branch was die cut from some patterned paper. I stamped the fish on white cardstock, colored it with Copics and then added glitter all over the fins (kinda like rainbow fish!)

I used my Cropadile to punch some bubbles and added them to the card. A peice of hemp finishes it off!

Materials used: Stamps- Birthday Buddies (Paper Smooches); Memento tuxedo black ink; markers- pumpkin pie, black (Stampin' UP!); Copic markers; Designer paper- Monster Stew- Bunch of Monsters (Jillibean Soup), Little Boy: Rad Plaid (Echo Park); stickles (Ranger); Tea dye distress ink (Ranger); Sizzlits die- branch with leaves (Sizzix); Cropadile (We R Memory Keepers).

Thanks for stopping by today!
