Fishy Friends

Fishy Friends....and I have quite a few, I tell ya! I have one friend who I adore who works in a hospital. On her floor, they have a FISH theme and she loves to place orders for cards with a fish theme. Here is one I made up for her to preview. She requested a card with sand and shells. I couldn't get a good shot without getting some glare off the ziplock bag that contains the shells and sand. But, I think you get the idea.

I love the way the cuttlebug worked on the background. My upline showed us this technique at our last stamp club. Ink up your brayer and roll ink on the side of your cuttlebug embossing folder where the design goes down into the folder....NOT the bumpy side where the design is raised. The ink will not go down into the crevices. Place your paper inside the folder and run it through your cb as you normally do. When you pull it out, the ink will be on the flat part of your paper, and no ink will be on the bumped up part of your paper. It is a really neat effect and creative way to do more with your cb embossing folders.

Remember, you can order most any card off my blog. Just leave me a message here or e-mail if you have my e-mail address. You can also place an order for Stampin Up items by going to my store. Click on the Idea Book and Catalog over to the right and it will take you to my store.
