How-To Video: Fish Card

Hi!  Have a video for you…

This card I made using the scraps from the butterfly card HERE.  No fabulous technique or idea here – just some fun twists on using punches on a fun card for no good reason. :) 

060608 Fish 

Hero Arts stamps (background, fish and greeting), notecards and black gem

Black Memories Ink

Ranger Pool Ink

Paper Shaper punches (flouish punch will be available in July!)


Other: Colored pencils and gemsol

I think the fish card was inspired by my trip.  I love to snorkel – one of my favorite things to do in the whole world.  Here is one picture from our trip to St. John – me hanging out with Kay and Audrey in our pool at our villa.  It felt like we were the only people on the island.  Love those girls and love that place.  (Oh, and by the way, this photo is true color – no editing.)


Need something else to do tonight?  Go check out all the new stamps from Hero Arts.  Some are 12" long images! See them HERE. Also, check out 2peas… they have stamps 20% off right now!  More soon.  πŸ™‚

  2. Love your card. Where did you find that cool punch? I looked everywhere on the internet to try to find it? Does the punch have a name?

    Thanks for your help.

  3. First, that photo is gorgeous! What an amazing view! I want to go there now!!!

    Great card – the video isn’t loading for me right now for some reason (sure it is an issue on my end, not yours). Will check it out later.

    You are so good at enabling! πŸ™‚ I will now HAVE to get the Four Bold Messages set (at the very least, anyway. Hee hee).

    As always, TFS!

  4. Such a cute card! Had to laugh at all your ‘lazy’ comments. Somehow I don’t picture you as being lazy. πŸ™‚ I can see why you were inspired – looks like a heaven place to be!

  5. We are going on a cruise this year, Royal Caribbean. The boat goes to St. Thomas & St. Maarten. What is the name of the villa you stay at when going to St. John? That is so beautiful.


  6. Great to have you back – looks like you had a great time – must have been hard to leave! Love the fishy card – I’m getting tempted to replace all my old,crappy punches with new lever type punches so I can do more fun things like this with them.

    Love the photo! The colors of the waters are amazing! Dream like photo, great for a layout.

    Love the fish card both my girls said awwwww…. as soon as they looked at it. Big hit with the little ones. They both watch your videos too.

    Glad to see you home:)

  8. That card is adorable! I like how you used the circle punch for the waves. I may actually have to get a circle punch now (I think I’m the only scrapbooker in the world without one).

  9. Another person who is dying to figure out where you got that punch! It is adorable and I must have it! πŸ˜€ Looks like you all had a wonderful time! πŸ˜€

  10. Glad to have you back. I’m happy you had a great time but i was missing your videos and posts.
    Love the cute card!!!

  11. This place must be absolute heaven on earth! The picture is incredible…such great perspective and composition…did hubby take that? And if so, will he give lessons to other hubbies? LOL πŸ˜‰ “No fabulous techniques or ideas here”…ha!…just the coolest use of a circle punch I’ve seen in ages. And the way you made the splash from the other flourishy punch…your mind works in ways I can only dream of. Ahhh, it’s good to have you back girl! πŸ™‚

  12. Welcome Home Jennifer! Fantastic..the view in that picture is Fantastic. I’m sure I’m not alone when I say “we can’t wait to see more.” How did Collin and the girls like the trip? The fishy card is adorable. I have to agree with other comments on the uniqueness of the way you used that punch. Who would have thought? Adorable card! I’m happy your back!

  13. Oh my gosh! That view is gorgeous! I’d love it if you’d email me with the name of the villa. I’m looking for a great vacation spot. It’s beautiful!

  14. I AM SO HAPPY YOU HAVE A BLOG! I just found it and I’m pretty sure I’m your biggest fan. (Even though I just realized you had a blog =/) The blogging world is NOW complete. =)

    I used to only get CK because of your column. And then my subscription ran out. And this was after gas became $4.00 a gallon. So I didn’t re-subscribe. =/

    Anywho.. LOVE your pages and your work and your faith in JC. So glad you have a blog. =)

  15. Love that card and your trip & picture are fabulous. You have taught me so much by using colored pencils and gamsol. I would have never known about it if I hadn’t met you thru your videos. Can’t thank you enough.

  16. WHERE did you get the PUNCH???? I can’t find it anywhere!!! You have the coolest ideas and I love how your videos show your creative process…thanks for having a blog!!

  17. Yes I agree with everyone else, that picture is to die for, I so want to go, might be abit far from this side of the world but it looks worth it! cute fish card, haven’t watched the video yet still oooh and ahhing over the photo.

  18. Welcome home, McGuires! What an awesome vacation you had! The card is darling. I’m seeing my punches in a new light. How clever to use your scraps and make simple waves for your fish! And the second punch to make “splashes”. Very cool…

  19. The cards is very cute – I just got that block stamp this week and made 6 cards with it for Cathy’s (at the HA Flickr) hospice fundraiser. LOVE that stamp, and here you are showing me another way to use it. Yaaaaaay!

    I think there may be a problem with the video -it’s not showing up.

  20. AHHH this foto is heaven!!!! I googled St
    John island and found lots of villa…some with views as wonderful as your foto. I just have to go there now!! They should give you a discount on your next visit,,considering how many of us will go there and spend our money. Please, if you can let us all know at least what area, side of the island you were on. I just HAVE to go!!!!
