TradeFish Designs (aka “TFD”) was established by C Stephens in April 2011 in Raleigh, North Carolina. TFD was created because she felt there was a need for stamps sets crafters could use in cards, scrapbook pages and other crafty projects for the boys and men in our lives. TFD is devoted to creating stamps with masculine themes, imagery and sentiments. You can use the images and sentiments for feminine cards or projects too, but the focus in the design work for TFD stamp sets is really about the boys. Visit TradeFish Designs to learn more and check out the latest designs and projects using the quirky stamps from TradeFish Designs!

Jen Cuthbertson
Jennifer had a lot of fun using Tradefish Designs Happy Father's Day set to make this bingo card that celebrates dad any day of the year! The card features a vintage, paper bingo card and Victoria Patterned Paper Tape over a light kraft card base. Head over to her blog to find out more!

Tracy MacDonald
Tracy used a sheet of Brown Kraft Cover Weight cardstock to create a gift bag.  She layered Buff Ivory Cover Weight cardstock and some designer paper on the front of the bag and used some Baby Blue Bakers Twine to close the bag.  For the matching card she used more of the Brown Kraft and Buff Ivory cardstocks and more of the twine for the balloon strings.  The party hat, balloons and sentiment all come from the Tradefish Designs "Another Year" stamp set.

Audrey Pettit
For this week's Anything Goes challenge, Audrey created a "thinking of you" card using lots of her favorite goodies from The Kraft Outlet. Lunch Bag Kraft Cardstock and patterned paper form the base for the card, along with scalloped borders punched from Buff Ivory Coverweight Cardstock. Audrey layered a Mini Gypsy Ephemera Label onto a Town Square Journaling Card for the main focal piece and trimmed it with Victoria Seam Binding, Merry Christmas Paper Tape, and a bow and buttons tied with Hang Tag String. A layered banner was stamped with a sentiment from Tradefish Designs Missing You stamp set and popped up on foam dots in the center of the card. For more photos and details, please visit Audrey's blog.

Kim Duran
For this weeks "anything goes" challenge, Kim took the opportunity to create a postage themed "thinking of you" card. She started with Brown Kraft paper for her card base to adhere her papers. And because Kim loves to use layers, she used a large scallop border to feature the Vintage Dictionary Pages and added rows from border stickers and pleated lace trim. She added a mini envelope and little note card using Buff Ivory to stamp her sentiment from the "Missing You" set by our sponsor, Tradefish Designs. To complete the card, Kim added her favorite Baby Blue Baker's Twine. For more photos and information, be sure to visit Kim's blog.
