have a whale of a time!
I had the chance last weekend to play along with the current Lawnscaping challenge which is to use Critters on our cards. I love the cute little Lawn Fawn critters so that was easy enough. I pulled out the adorable Critters in the Sea set for my card. I love that little whale!
I stamped my whale on copic x-press it cardstock with tuxedo black memento ink and colored him with these copic markers: W1, W3, W5. Then, I cut him out to use on my card. I used patterned papers from Echo Park's Sweet Summertime line. I stamped the waves from the Critters in the Sea set repeatedly to create my waves and cut them out. Then, I die cut my sky patterned paper using a Labels 8 nestability die, added my waves to the bottom, and trimmed the ends with a pair of scissors. I stamped the sentiment on some white graph paper (from the Sweet Summertime line), adhered it in place, and trimmed the edges again with a pair of scissors.
I stamped my kraft card base with the Hero Arts Envelope Pattern background stamp using rich cocoa memento ink. I used some antique linen distress ink to go around the edges of my patterned papers. Then, I added some black mats and stitched my base patterned paper. I stamped the whale's spout and adhered the whale with foam adhesive. Then, I used the MFT Sunshine die to die cut a yellow polka dot patterned paper. I stitched an orange button in the center when I stitched it to my piece. Then, I adhered the whole piece of foam adhesive.
As soon as I finish typing this up, I'm going to package up stamps. So, if I received payment for your stamps, they will be shipping out today. Thanks, Everyone! I hope you enjoy your new goodies. :)
Have a great day!
