Fishing for Wishes!



As many of you know, I have been in the process of rearranging my stamp area. In the process, I unburried my basket of acrylic stamps that holds my CTMH, My Favorite Things, The Cat's Pajamas, The Paper Salon, etc. It has had a bunch of stuff on top of it for quite some time now, so now that it is uncovered, I decided to pull out some of my fun winter images from The Cat's Pajamas. I think Amy (rohla) may have had something to do with it, too! She has made a few darling creations with them recently. I think this image is supposed to be used for Christmas, but I decided to change it up a bit and use it for a Winter Birthday. I love this paper from My Mind's Eye. I got a huge slab of it on clearance at Hobby Lobby. Now, while I love the texture and weight of the original pieces, I have to admit that I love having *so much* on hand. LOL!




I don't know the name of the set that I used *sorry*! I can't seem to find it on the packaging anywhere. I stamped everything with Palette Noir ink and colored with prismacolor and copic markers. I decided to cut out a few packages and pop them up for some dimension. I added crystal stickles to the images and around the card. I love the icy feel it gives the card. I usually use diamond stickles, but this card seemed to call for crystal. I love how it makes all of the colors pop. I also used "Wow Flowers" by SU!. I thought the circle image worked well with the paper. Thanks for fluttering by!
