Hi everyone!  I have a card to share today using the adorable TAWS mini stamp set, Gill-Friend, that also happens to be this month's FREE gift with purchases of $40 or more (before shipping).  I used 3 of the fish, the hook, one of the sentiments, plus the seaweed from this set, together with the coral stamp from Little Fellas.

I started by inking up the front of a 105x148mm card base using Tumbled Glass distress ink.  I then took a piece of 105x148mm Bazzill Coconut Swirl cardstock and cut out the 3 different sizes of pierced circles using my ME Sew Fancy die set.  I stamped the coral stamp from Little Fellas using Memento Lady Bug ink onto the background, added a sentiment below the largest circle window, and then fixed the die-cut panel onto the card base using foam tape.  Then it was just a case of stamping, colouring and fussy cutting out the fish, seaweed and hook from Gill-Friend! I added some silver thread for the fishing line and some transparent gloss pen for bubbles.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

  5. Wow, I just saw this card and absolutely love it. I haven't been happy with any of the cartoon like fish I've seen until I found this set! I had no ideas that the Viva Decor Transparent Gloss Gel Pen made just realistic water like bubbles, it really holds it's shape. Thanks for all the great details and inspiration!


Thank you so very much for taking the time to pop by and for leaving me a comment! I hope you have a wonderful day! Hugs, Sem x
