Something Fishy – Seaside Shore

I CASED this from page 52 of the 2017-2018 Annual Stampin’ Up! Catalog.  I added the backgroud paper and changed the shape of the Whisper White panel to make it my own but the inspiration came straight from the catalog!

And that’s ok.  You can do it too!  If you like a card or project you can copy something exactly or change it up a little bit.  Every card doesn’t have to be a unique design and if you find something that’s perfect, why make more work for yourself by trying not to copy it?

The only thing is that you should try and give credit to the person whose design you copied; especially if you are posting a photo of your creation online somewhere.

As some of you are already aware, my daughter is a Marine Biologist.  I hope she doesn’t doesn’t get tired of my ‘fish’ cards!

Seaside Shore is a great stamp set for making masucline cards and perfect for avid fishermen/women or anyone who have an aquarium.

Flower Shop gets an Update!

Here is another card I made from the background paper I created with Glossy White Cardstock and Ink Refills last month.  I love how each one is unique!  For directions on how I did it, see my original post.

This card features a tried and true stamp set, Flower Shop, which stands out against a fresh and fun background.  Both the flowers and the sentiment were heat embossed with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  This card is bright and fun, just like perfect summer days here in Wisconsin.

The Balloon and Rib Fest will be celebrated in Wausau, WI from July 13-16th.  I should have made a ton of these cards and had a booth to sell them at the event.  LOL!

I went on a Hot Air Balloon ride once and absolutely LOVED it!  I remember it being so quiet while we were floating along, except for the “whoosh” when the pilot fired up to keep the balloon inflated.

We landed safe and sound – but it is a bit unnerving if you think about how little control you have if anything goes wrong.  But it was a great experience and if it weren’t so expensive, I would love to go every week!

Back to my card….

***Stamping Tip:  Sponge the background using the Stampin’ Sponge, Pool Party, Bermuda Bay, and Dapper Denim inks.  Every background will look a bit different and that’s okay!
