Holy Carp! Lucky Me!

I can't believe it - I was randomly drawn on a blog to win a great stamp set called Holy Carp by a Skipping Stones Design Team designer in their last blog hop!  I love punny sayings, and funny cards, so this is right up my alley.  The sketch is the Skipping Stones Design Sketch #108.

I decided to create a card for the occasion, and Frosted Designs  Friday challenge is to create something using stamping.  Easy trapeezey! I love stamping, and coloring, and fussy cutting!  So... anyway, here's my first card with my NEW stamp set. :) 

I used real hemp for the fishing line, and one of my favorite Fiskars border punches to simulate stitiching on the lower piece of cardstock.

Happy Stamping!



  1. Super cute card! Great colours, stamping and that image is so great. Thanks for playing along with us at Frosted Designs!

  2. Yay! So glad that you found a set! What a fun card this is, great detailing! And love the twine for the line!
