A Fishing kind of Birthday!

Relax, it’s cool!  How to celebrate a 10th birthday… fishing… Grandson Lane loved his new tackle box and lures from Grandpa!

New Stampfairy stamps from Marianne Design… Stampfairy Bear Fishing and Stampfairy Sentiments.  I also used Marianne Design’s tree, fence, grass and bird dies for this step card… it just makes me happy! So cute!  The three little trees in the background are a dollar stamp from M’s… I stamped and masked the bear first… just cut out half the mask… = )

I love how the dies emboss… I used the embossing with the stylus technique that I show in this video HERE and the tree is pieced like I show in this video HERE.

All the pieces are edged with Walnut Stain Distress ink, the green is edged with Peeled Paint Distress ink… and the ink blending tool!  MME Lime Twist Cloud paper again… I bought the last three sheets of it at the stamp store in Des Moines… love it!  I’ll link to the 6×6 pad that has it in it though.

Gonna switch gears and try watercoloring some of the new Printworks stamps….wish me good painting! eek!  I love a good challenge!  = )

Happy Fishing or for me… I prefer Stamping! lol  Thanks for stopping by!  Talk to you again soon!

Stamps and Such…
