I had a lot of fun with today’s card. Whenever a friend calls and I answer the phone, I usually say “Hello My Friend.” It’s just what I say. At this point it would be weird saying anything else. So, it’s what inspired me for today’s card.
My card today uses Wild Wasabi as a base and layers it with Very Vanilla. I then used a pattern from the Fruit Stand DSP to layer over that. I cut two strips of banners, in Soft Sky (1-1/2″) and Wild Wasabi (2″) using the Triple Banner Punch.
I next created my jar and fish. I stamped the jar in Wild Wasabi using the Jar of Love stamp set and stamped the water in Soft Sky. I then stamped the little goldfish in Pumpkin Pie. The bundle is great because it makes cutting them out a synch with the coordinating framelits.
Lastly, I created my sentiment using the Labeler Alphabet. This wasn’t a stamp set I bought right away, but I found myself wanting to use certain sentiments which didn’t exist and wanted to create my own.
A little Labeler Alphabet hint (which may seem obvious to everyone else), but you can’t just take the letters and line them up to create a word. You really have to stamp letter by letter.
My letters were stamped in Pumpkin Pie and I added a few Enamel Dots in Pumpkin Pie and Soft Sky and I placed them over a backdrop of Vellum.
