My Fishy Valentine!

I have a heart-shaped ‘fishbowl’ to share with you today!

I couldn’t keep this idea on hold any longer.   Does that ever happen to you?  After several days of ignoring the fishbowl thought, it finally had to get expressed in paper & inks … and window sheets.

To create the heart “frame”, I laid 2 heart dies on Calypso Coral cardstock and rolled all through the Big Shot.  Then the colored image and window sheet were each cut separately, using the larger heart die from the ‘frame’.  Dry adhesives work best with Window Sheets, and in this case I recommend Snail or Fast Fuse.  Just be careful not to place the adhesive within the area that is visible from the front view.

 Little Rhinestone Jewels were colored with one of  the Bermuda Bay Blendabilities before using them as sparsely placed bubbles.  The fishies were colored with a variety of Blendabilities for colorful fun.  And that cute paper that seems to be “splashy”?   It’s from the charming Birthday Bash 12″x12″ collection found in the Occasions catalog.  Perfect colors to cheer up this gray Winter weather!


Remember!  During Stampin’ Up!’s Sale-A-Bration, each $50 in product earns a free item of your choice! There’s no limit on the free goodies, so it’s a perfect time to finish your color collection in inks or cardstocks or to add on always-fun new stamps.  Please let me know how I can be of help to you as your demonstrator.  I’m always just an email away!
