Share It Sunday - A Fish and A Wish

It's time for another Share It Sunday Blog Hop!  We are a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world and we are sharing our projects with you as part of this blog hop.  There is no theme for our blog hop today. 

My card today features the Stampin' Up! A Wish & A Fish Bundle from the Annual Catalogue.  I have been having fun with this bundle recently and created this card for a swap that I participate in each month.  Embossed vellum seemed perfect for the background for the fish.  Isn't it pretty in Bermuda Bay!


  1. Cut Bermuda Bay cardstock 4 1/4" x 11" and score at 5 1/2".  Fold and burnish on scoreline with Bone Folder to form card base
  2. Cut Vellum cardstock 4" x 5 1/4"
  3. Emboss Vellum using Timeworn Type Embossing Folder.
  4. Adhere to the card base - I used Stampin' Seal in the bottom right corner under where the circle would be placed so that the adhesive wouldn't show
  5. Cut largest circle from Bermuda Bay cardstock using largest Stylish Shapes Circle Die
  6. Stamp waves using Bermuda Bay ink
  7. Wrap White Baker's Twine around palm of hand 3-4 times.  Pull off and pinch in the middle.  Adhere in bottom right corner
  8. Adhere circle over twine using Dimensionals
  9. Stamp fish using Bermuda Bay ink and punch out
  10. Adhere to circle
  11. Stamp sentiment on a scrap of Basic White cardstock using Bermuda Bay ink
  12. Cut out using Paper Snips
  13. Adhere to circle using Dimensionals
  14. Adhere Fine Sparkle Gems
  15. Cut Basic White cardstock 4" x 5 1/4"
  16. Stamp wave in bottom right corner using Bermuda Bay ink stamped off
  17. Stamp fish using Bermuda Bay ink over wave
  18. Adhere to the inside of the card.

You can find all of the supplies for this card in my Online Store.
