Fishy Love

I've been on a punch crazy lately and found this Martha Stewart fish jumped right into my cart at Michael's last week. When I got it home, it BEGGED to be made into a Valentine, and who was I to argue with a fish?


I had to search my stash for three solid hearts in stackable sizes, but one advantage to being obsessive having lots of stamps is a good choice of basic designs. The tiniest is from PTI's Limitless Labels (the row of hearts, masked to only ink one), the next is from a Hero Arts set, and the largest from a Clear and Simple Stamps set I won as blog candy.

Ann (you know which Ann you are), these colors are for you.

Supplies
stamps: PTI, Hero Arts, Clear and Simple Stamps
ink: SU passion pink
paper: PTI white
accessories: MS fish embossing punch, dimensionals, black half-pearls, ribbon

    maybe you should host challenges on your blog...like "CAS +" challenges. An example, CAS+ the colors pink and blue or CAS+ a punch, or CAS+ this layout.....you certainly have enough followers...and we all sit and wait around for Sunday night...we need something else to do in the mean time!!!! ;-)

  18. I see those MS shape punches whenever I go to Michael's and I think they are cute but I don't know what I would make with them. You were clever enough to figure it out though. This is super adorable!
