By The Tide Father's Day

This coming Sunday we celebrate everything about our Fathers for Father's Day. This card is for my Father-in-law who loves his fishing! I reckon if he could go fishing every day he would he loves it that much. Lucky he doesn't read my blog so I can post this card on here before the big day!

This is another one of those stamp sets that I've had for a long time and rarely use. It is one of about 5 sets that are still in the older style clam shell cases. I really should use it more often because it really is an awesome set.

The striped DSP panel is from one of the new Christmas DSP from the Holiday Catty,    , but I thought it was perfect for my water themed card.

I stamped the fish in Island Indigo and then using a blender pen pulled the colour from the edges to give the fish a light bit of colour. On the shell I picked up a little bit of Blushing Bride with the Blender Pen to give it a bit colour

I stamped the coral image on vellum with Versamark and heat set some gold embossing powder on it. It really is an easy technique that gives a really great effect. The card is then finished off with some gold cording, linen thread, burlap ribbon and gold metallic tread. Now to make a card for my dad and help my kids make one for their dad.

Below is a list of all the items that I used in this project. If you live in Australia and would like to purchase and of these items used then just click on the image and you will be directed to my online store.


  1. I think this underwater scene is brilliantly designed and definitely feels very masculine. Great combo of textures and colors and dimension. Love it!!
