Today was a perfect day to clean house and play in my craft room. While visiting my crafty friends blogs this morning, I came across the Using one cartridge for a week challenge with the Getting Cricky Design Team at DDs crafts blog and decided to play along.
I love K. Andrew stamps so I dug through my draws of stamps and pulled out the Splash-tastic stamp set for some inspiration. I saw the sentiment, "Fishing you were here" and decided to design my card around that stamp.
Here's what I came up with using a cart that I have not used since last spring. What do you think?
How I made this card:
K. Andrews Splash-tastic Stamp Set - Fishing you were here.
Meow Lite Cart - Cat with fish bowl cut at 4 1/2"
Shadow of cat cut using Recollections black cardstock
Cat cut using DCWV The fun in the sun Summer stack 12 x 12 cardstock pack
Water cut using ColorBok pearlescent paper
Fish bowl cut using light gray Recollections cardstock
S.E.I. Morocco 12 x12 paper pad:
Orange background on card
Blue punched cardstock
Grey patterned cardstock
Fiskars punch used to punch edges of blue cardstock
Glossy Accents used on the fish bowl
Orange Peel stickles use on the fish
Zig pen for detailing
Stampin Up! Basic Black and Bordering Blue ink
Fancy Frame Stamp and Die set from My creative Time
I stitched around the grey patterned cardstock with orange thread then glued this down to my orange cardstock on the card. I used foam tape for the cat and the tag. Then I took some of my Basic Grey Coordinating fibers and tied it to the punched edge to give the cat something else to play with other than that poor fish. hehehe.
Hope you enjoy the rest of your Sunday. Happy crafting...
