Birthday Fishes

How cute are these fish?! I treated myself to a new stamp set from Paper Smooches last week and I am having so much fun creating with it. Remember a few posts ago I was saying I had a hard time incorporating washi tape into my cards? I'm happy to say I'm getting more used to using it now I want more! Go figure! LOL Thanks for looking and I hope your day goes swimmingly!

Last week I was perusing the aisles of Joann's and I found a burlap paper pack from DCWV. I had no idea if it would work with my Nesties but I knew it would work with my other dies, so I bought it. I didn't even need to use a coupon because it was already 40% off which made it about $3. I love a good bargain! The burlap is backed with paper so it's very die friendly. I just needed to add a shim when I used my nestie. I think the flower gives this card sort of a vintage feel don't you think?

Thanks for looking today!

Out of the Box

My sister was telling me about an inking technique she saw that's pretty simple.You just use painters tape directly on your ink pad (sticky side down) and lightly ink your paper. It makes a pretty interesting background. This is so out of the box for me I just couldn't let the inked paper stand alone so I added some washi tape. I love washi tape but never use it. It's hard for me to incorporate it into my stamping, but it work out well for this card. I like cute and symmetrical and I can't live without my nesties, but not bad for a first pass huh? Hope you enjoy my out of the box stamping and thanks for looking today.

Whooo Knew?

Yes, who knew it would still be hot as we approach the middle of September. ISH! It was about 108 yesterday and today and tomorrow it's supposed to be 110. What's a girl to do when it's that hot? Stay in and stamp of course! Thanks for looking and have a marvelous day!
