TWO PAPER DIVAS Design Team Card - Best Fishes

Well ...... I did it like I said that I might!!!  Thank you Melissa Rodgers, Co-Owner of TWO PAPER DIVAS!!!  You inspired me to do this card with your "original" design of the Fishies in the Gum Ball machine that you did for the December 2015 release of the stamp set "I Chews You".  Knowing that I had the die of the Gum Ball Machine from Simon Says Stamp (2015) which they put out for a Shaker card.  This is not a Shaker but it almost could have been the way that I designed it........BUT Mel .... you totally get the credit for the creation.  Thank YOU!!

STAMPS:  TWO PAPER DIVAS - Best Fishes Stamp Set  (Fish and Sentiment)

PENS:  Zig Clean Color Real Brush (Red, Lilac, Light Blue, Cobalt Blue & Lemon Yellow)

DIES:  SIMON SAYS STAMP & Essentials by ELLEN - Bohemian Garden by Julie (Greenery)

Again ..... I have to say thank you to Melissa Rodgers for the concept **** AND also to Gayla O'Dell both are owners of Two Paper Divas.  To Gayla .... Yes I had to order the ZIG pens because of you. Not a full set but enough to get through the basic coloring.  I love the "brush"!!!

Happy coloring out there!!!

This card is going to my dear friend, Judy Davidson, for her Birthday on Monday.  I will email it to her, teach a class on Tuesday with it and then put it in the MAIL to Judy.  A little sneaky!!!


  1. Super fun and cute! I have never seen a die cut gumball machine! And I LOVE the palm tree (it looks like one anyway). And you are so right, it would be a great shaker card! Thanks for sharing, Carryn!

  2. This is so creative and FUN! I love it!

  3. Well ..... I mailed the card to my dear friend Judy Davidson who lives in Kentucky BUT she should still be here in Colorado!! Oh well ... that is another story which we talk about all the time!! She got the card and told me that she loved her "well used card"!! Everyone should have a "Judy" in their life ... she is the funniest friend in my life. Just ask Melissa ... she met her years ago.
