CTMH Ocean Treasures Kid Card with True Happiness and Animal Cookies Creative Basic


"Of all the treasures in the sea, you truly mean the most to me." What a wonderful sentiment that goes with this adorable Ocean Treasure stamp set. I'm always impressed with CTMH's selection of themed B size stamp sets. They are only $13.95 for a set of several themed images perfect for creating projects like cards, bag toppers, booty bags for parties, lollipop covers, altered notebooks, scrapbook accents and so much more! I usually stock up on all the new B size stamps with each Idea Book as they are inexpensive, fun and a great way to add a gallery of images into your stamping tool box.

Here I've combined Ocean Treasures with True Happiness for a fun ocean themed card. I made the ocean waves by stamping in Dutch Blue first with the stamp in a straight line and then I curved the stamp on a block to create the bouncy ocean waves. One of the HUGE benefits of our acrylix stamps is that you can bend them into shapes and they bounce right back to the normal shape after you take them off the block. This is great for curving long words, images or borders to create the exact shape you need. I also used the clouds in True Happiness to stamp along the top of the card. The sea creatures are simply stamped on the clover green backside of the blue flowered Animal Cookies Creative Basics paper and pop dotted playing along in their ocean waves. My sea-creature-crazy son gave this card two thumbs up - hope you like it!

Materials Used:
Paper: Animal Cookies Creative Basics, White Daisy Cardstock
Stamps: Ocean Treasure, True Happiness
Inks: Clover Meadow, Dutch Blue
Other: Pop Dots
