I Spy with my Little Eye

something blue, a dolphin, a dog, an A, something pink, love, and sooooo much more! All in my card for the Treat Cup Swap at the Stampin' Addicts Meet and Greet during Stampin' Up! Convention (which is two weeks away!).

Stamps: Something Sweet
Paper: Tangerine Tango, Tempting Turquoise, Peach Parfait, Bright Designer Series Paper Pack, Silver, Whisper White
Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: 1 ¾” Circle Punch, 2 ½” Circle Punch, Big Shot, Tasteful Trims Bigz XL Die, Paper Piercing Tool and matte, Silver Brads, Polka Dots Embossing Folder, Glass Glitter, assorted beads and trinkets

I love this Designer Series Paper Pack for it's ability to liven up any card. This idea has been in my head for a while--a kid card that's like a finder. Finally, it occured to me to make it a magnifying glass and here it is. Clare helped me sort beads this weekend. I found this crazy assortment at our local Goodwill. I am sure you can find similar things other places.

She was very patiently putting beads into the cups. Whenever she dropped one, she said, "Uh, oh" and only tried to eat one (that looked suspiciously like candy).

Now, with less than two weeks to go, I have some more stamping to get to!

Happy Stamping!
