Jar of Love – Best Fishes Card

I haven’t made many blue cards recently so decided to use Blueberry Bushel and Pool Party as a base for todays card. I pulled out Jar of Love which is one of my oldest stamp sets but also one of my most unused sets, I just find it hard work. Any ideas greatly appreciated!

Anyway I decided to use the little fish stamp and create an underwater type card. For the background I ran the Dot to Dot Textured Impressions folder through the Big Shot with some Pool Party cardstock, I love how this created a bubbly background.

For the centre of the card I stamped out the fishes in Pumpkin Pie and then cut masks out of post-it notes with the matching die from the Everyday Jars Framelits.  I’d stamp and cut out three fish before I realised I didn’t need the stamping on the post-it notes, oops!!

After covering all the fish with their little masks I sponged over a layer of Pool Party ink. I added a little greeting with the Classic Label punch and dave one fish some dimension with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

For a final touch  I added three little dots of the Fine-Tip glue nest to each fish which when complely dried looked like bubbles coming out of the fish, sadly these don’t show on the photos.

I’d love to see your creations with this stamp set as its one I struggle with.

Happy Crafting
