You're the Best with Whipper Snapper!!



Isn't this mushroom just the cutest? I love the shape and the fringe along the bottom. It's from the new Whipper Snapper set Fish Friends, Designed by Anna Wight. I stamped it onto Neenah Solar White cs with Tuxedo Black (Memento), and colored it with copics.

I thought it'd be fun to make a circle card with the new Making Memories Paper line called Chloe's Closet, because the colors are so fresh and fun. The circle and scallops are all Spellbinders Nestabilities shapes, as well as the Labels I center framing the image. I used the Martha Stewart Lacy border punch for the strip across the middle, pierced around the inner circle, and added a button.

I couldn't fit the sentiment on the outside since the circle is small, so I finished off the inside, like Denise Marzec (The Paper Landscaper) is so fabulous at doing!

Supplies: Stamps - Fish Friends (Whipper Snapper - Anna Wight designs) Paper - Chloe's Closet (Making Memories), Prismatics Ink - Tuxedo Black (Memento) Accessories - Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Cuttlebug, Lacy Border Punch (Martha Stewart), Button (Stampin' UP!) Circle Piercing Template (The Crafters Workshop), Piercing Tool (Making Memories)

That's it! I hope your week is off to a fantastic start! I know mine is. I'm busy getting ready to head to CHA!! And I have some fabulous projects to show you, this week, that I made for Michelle (Stamper's Dream) and Laurie (just give me stamps) to use while there.

Be sure to check out what the other Featured Designers have done with Anna's new images!! They're awesome!!
