More SSS New Release Cards!

Hi there!

I have a couple more cards to share with you today, using some goodies from Simon Says Stamp's, "This is the Life" new release! Today's cards are definitely in the "cute" category. I used the, Best Fishes clear stamp set and the matching dies, called Fish and Bowl. It is such a fun set!


The background was created with watercolors and all the fish, the sentiment and seaweed are stamps from the set. I colored the larger fish with Copic Markers and used the matching dies to cut them out. I stamped the inside of the card with the rest of the sentiment, which says, ". . .come true." Oh! And those Tiny Flower Sequins? Those are also from Simon Says stamp - love!

For my next card, I used the same set but added the die-cut fish bowl and treasure chest to create a shaker card. 


This one was totally inspired by Stephanie Klauck - love her talent!
Here's a close-up:


Copics were used again for the coloring on the fish and treasure chest A soft layer of Tumbled Glass Distress Ink was used for the water inside the bowl. The bubbly background was created using Cuttlebug's, Tiny Bubbles embossing folder.

That's it for me today - I'll be back soon with a couple more cards from the release.

Thanks for the visit - hope your Saturday is filled with creativity! ♥

You have really out-done yourself with this stamp and die set, Barb! I love how you water colored the background, and your coloring on all the images is just beautiful! I've been wanting a really cute 'fish' themed set for a while now, and you've convinced me that this is it! Thanks so much for sharing your SSS creations with us!
