CAS(E) This 26

Good morning, Friends! I hope your week is off to a great start! The soccer season ended this past weekend and now we will finish off it all off with a tournament at home next weekend. So we will have a free weekend! Woohoo! I get to spend it with a friend on the eastern slope! I am so excited! But there are things I need to get finished up before then! And stamping is one of them. I am feeling a real need to get some new product. I hope to have something new to show you all next week. We will see...

Today's card was inspired by the sketch at CAS(E) This.  I am loving the new Epic Day designer paper!! I just need more stamps images to go with it. But until then I am trying to make what I have work. I thought the fish from By the Tide would work well with the green and blue piece. And I did want to go for a more masculine look. So I took a piece of the Epic Day designer paper and adhered it to a card base of Sahara Sand. Then I stamped the greeting from Made for You (retiring at the end of this month - boo) in Basic Grey onto a piece of the Epic Day designer paper. I rounded the corner with the 3/4" circle punch and tied some linen thread around this piece. This is popped up onto the card. Then I stamped the fish from By the Tide onto Very Vanilla. I inked the fish up in Daffodil Delight and then took a sponge and daubed some Pool Party (hard to see) and some Gumball Green ink on it before stamping. I thought it turned out kinda cool! I cut the fish out and popped it up onto the card. Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
