Hey Valentine treats

Hello! I am glad that I am able to share with you my son's valentine's day treats for his class. Please excuse the less than stellar photos. My photo taking time is limited to morning or night and neither of those are good options since there is no daylight. I need to get my photo tent sent up in the craft room but that has been low on the list of things to do around the house. I think I need to bump it up since these pictures are not that great. But you still get to see the project. I fell in love with the fish from this set and knew that I wanted to use it for valentine's treats. Instead the treat bags are packages of gold fish. Obviously I was way more excited about doing these than my son was but I figured it's the first time he gets to do valentine's in school so I wanted to do something cute while his class was still small and he didn't have much say, haha!! I did want him to participate a little bit so I had him color the Lost Lagoon pieces with some crayons. Those pieces have his name on it. So you lift up the white circle to see who it's from. I used the same colors for the fish that I did in my last post. I didn't put too much effort into coloring them since I know the kids won't care too much. The coloring was more fun for me! Once I had everything colored and cut out I just stapled everything to the bags and that was it! I just wanted to keep things fairly simple since the kids are just going to tear into the bags for the goldfish anyway. But I still had fun putting these together and I think my son enjoyed some coloring too!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hey Valentine

Happy Tuesday! I wanted to get this card posted before Valentine's day. Even though you can definitely use this stamp set for birthdays and other cards, just don't stamp the sentiment. As soon as I saw this set in the catalog, I had to have it, I thought it was so cute!! I think the fish are my favorite from the set. I am also using these fish for my son's valentine's for his class. I hope I can get them posted before Valentine's day.
On to the card. For the background, I stamped the handcarved stamp on watercolor paper and embossed it with clear embossing powder. I then used my aqua painter and several blue colors to get the ombre look. It was a fun technique to do. I then stamped the fish and colored them in with the Blendabilities. LOVE these markers! They make coloring so much more fun! I used the starburst framelit to cut out the fish and I left off the sentiment because I wanted to have it pop on colored cardstock. The yellow behind the fish are 2 Daffodil Delight Deco label framelits. I just adhered everything together with the cool little stapler from the Occasions catalog. I then stamped the Hey Valentine sentiment on Calypso Coral cardstock and used the banner punch for the ends. The finishing touch was Bermuda Bay sequins. I think every card needs sequins!! :)

Have a great day!
