Hello – thanks for reading my blog!

When I first got this year’s Stampin’ Up! catalogue, one of the first stamps that jumped out at me was the Fishin’ Around one.  At only $15.95 – bargain!    It is perfect for a kid’s card (which I make a LOT of!) or even for an engagement, Valentines Day or wedding card.    It is also great for colouring in – one of my favourite things to do when I’m relaxing.

I needed a special card for a very special 1 year old’s birthday recently, so finally inked up this stamp.

Fishin' Around birthday cardThis is a 13 x 13 cm Bermuda Bay square card with a 12.5 x 12.5 cm Whisper White layer.  I sponged around the white edge in Calypso Coral to match the fish.  I stuck a circle treat cup over the coloured in image to make it look like a fish bowl.   The stamped tag is from the Banner Greetings hostess set.     I wrote the birthday boy’s name with my Dazzling Details glitter glue.   I also put a couple of dots of this in the treasure chest to make it sparkle.

I’ve had lots of fun making these cards in various colour schemes.   Here is a picture of some of my coloured in images (all using Stampin’ Write markers)

Fishin' Around colouringYou can probably see I’ve tried to add some ‘treasure’ to the treasure chests.  Here are a few close up pictures to give you a better idea:

Fishin' Around with glitter treasureI don’t have pictures of this I’m sorry, but I’ve also made a few where I’ve used rhinestones or glitter in the bubbles against a lightly shaded blue background.

Thanks for reading!
