Clown Fish Love

Hi all, 

I just thought I would share with you my cute, Maroon Clown Fish. He finally adopted our Green, Bubble, Tipped, Anemone. We got the Anemone about 2 months ago, and it took the Clown that long to adopt him. Now they are inseparable. The Clown even feeds the Anemone, and protects him from other fish. It's too cute. 



Congratulations On Your New Home!

Hi all, 

I made this card for a neighbor of mine that just moved across town. I already miss her, but hopefully we'll get together to stamp again soon. 

The yellow brick background was an attempt to make bricks in Photoshop, but it didn't turn out like I wanted, but I printed it out and used it anyways. 

Card Stock Used: Stampin Up Bashful Blue and Whisper White.
Inks Used: Stampin Up Basic Black.
Stamps Used: The Window is by Wood Cellar Graphics.
Congratulations is from Stampin Up's, "All-Year Chear I." Keep in Touch bird is from Stampin Up's, "On the Move." The Cat and rug are from Art Impressions. 
Accessories Used: Quick Kutz Empire Alphabet set. Prismacolor pencils, pink and white and silver, and window was colored with Stampin Up blue pastels. Exacto knife to cut out shapes on window. 

I love Art Impression stamps. I haven't used them in eons. I bought a bunch of those two way stamp about 6 years ago, and I think it's been that long since I used the cat.

Froggy Slider Card

Hi gang, here's a card that I made for a swap awhile back. I got the idea from Stamp with Tami here. She has a video tutorial and a nice pdf file to give you more ideas. 

Stamps Used: Unfrogettable.
Card Stock: Positively Pink, Mellow Moss, Speckled White.
Inks Used: Basic Black. 
Accessories: Double Sided Tape, Google Eyes, Pop Dot Dimensionals, Zig-Zag Glue, Iridescent glitter for the dragonfly, and Water Color Pencils with a blender pen, and 2 pennies, and a small hole punch, and Kai Scissors to cut out the frog, and an Exacto blade to cut out the rectangle. 

I actually punched out holes in the double sided tape, the size of the google eyes and attached them to the frog with the tape. The rectangle can be made easier buy using the Stampin Up Word Window Punch. I didn't have one at the time I made this, so I used the exacto blade instead. 

I hope all of you have a great week!

I kind of copied a tutorial that Michelle Zindorf did here.
I just love here. She used Adondirack colors and I don't have those, so I used what I could find in my Stampin Up collection.

I just got this cute stamp collection called, "Little Tees," from 
Gina K. Designs. I mainly bought it because it has a ribbon stamp that I can use for October's Breast Cancer Awareness Month. 

Have a great week!
