Make a Splash – Quick and Cute Card. Who has missed the Host Set in the Spring/Summer Mini Catalogue? It is tucked away right at the back, so you may well have missed it. I LOVE this set for a few reasons, firstly it is just incredibly cute. It is also only available with Host Rewards, so is, in effect FREE. What is even better is thathaving earned your Host Reewards, this is a great way to use them, because it only costs £9.00 of your rewards, because it is valued at £15.00.
I took my inspiration for this card from the images in the Catalogue and just added my own feel to it with the colours I used. My bowl is in Smoky Slate, and you do need to be careful with this stamp. The stamp itself only has the outline, so it is very easy to get it kinked a little when you add it to your block. To stop this happening, simply place your stamp on a piece of paper, with the wrong side up. Let it relax for a while and then pick it up with your block. Now you can stamp it.
I used Soft Seafoam for my water and the bubbles (which I added at the end). Sahara Sand for the sand in the bottom just had to be done! Pumpkin Pie for the goldfish and finally Pear Pizzazz for the foliage. I wanted a sentiment, but more than that, I wanted something for the bowl to sit on. I have a real issue with stamped images ‘floating’ with nothing underneath them. The sentiment resolves both of my issues.
The final florish is some sequins to add a little shimmer and shine in amoungst the sand at the bottom of the bowl. This also helps to cover any areas at the bottom of the foliage, which I certainly had a couple of. And that is it, one super cute goldfish card.
