Best Fishes

Hello Sweet Friends! Julie here showcasing the brand new Birthday Pals Stamp/Die Bundle along with the previously released BareTree Die Set and Tall Grass Die from Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps.   

I love the new Birthday Pals ClearStamp Set- perfect for cards for kids of all ages!

To create this card, I stamped the balloon image as well as the first fish from the Birthday Pals Clear Stamp Set directly on white cardstock using archival black ink and the second fish onto acetate (then laid a piece of white cardstock onto the stamped acetate for the reverse image).

I die cut all of the images out with the coordinating Birthday Pals Dies (part of the Birthday Pals Stamp/Die bundle) and colored each of the fish with water-based markers adding the white dots on the fish and the reflection on the balloon with the Sharpie Extra Fine White Paint Pen.

I cut a circle out of designer paper (I saved the die cut panel for another project), mounted the circle to a piece of white cardstock, stamped the sentiment (curving it a bit) with archival black ink and added the Tall Grass Die cut from green cardstock and the Bare Tree Die cut from pink cardstock (to mimic coral).

I mounted this background panel onto a tangerine card base, added the stamped/die cut fish and balloon with dimensional foam and a few sequins to finish off the card.

I am looking forward to playing with more of the Birthday Pals images- they are so much fun!!

Have a blessed week and thanks for visiting- hugs, sweet friends!
