Anne Marie at The Paper Players # 163 asked participants to create a kid-themed card this week. I have been itching to use the adorable single SU wooden stamp Fishin’ Around. It is just tooooo cute! I have also had some treat cups for about a year crying out to be used. I have seen so many neat ways to incorporate the treat cups with the stamp- even the Annual Catalog has an idea of putting water in a sealed treat cup to mimic the fish bowl filled with water. I am going to try that someday but I had these fun little beads and thought they looked like treasure so I put them in the treat cup to be jewels coming out of the chest in the stamped image. I decided to use a tag with a bow and the bold focal point of the treat cup after seeing Marion Vagg’s card at the MUSE Card Club # 35 this week. I must say the hubby was quite taken by the concept and shook and shook the card like a ‘lil kid!
I took a bunch of photos but I can’t figure out how to take the picture to show that the button on the sentiment is indeed centered perfectly but looks like it is not. Hmmm….
I used Stickles for the gold in the chest and the bubbles in the fishbowl. The sentiment was created in SU My Digital Studio.
