Whale of a Time! New Release!

Hi there! And happy weekend to you!
I have another card using Whimsy Stamp's Whale of a Time!  For the background I used the new Speckled Heart Stencil and Nuvo Glimmer paste.   Once it was dry, I sponged a bit of Picked Raspberry Distress ink to the edges
I stamped the whale image and colored it with Copic Markers.  I fussy cut it out and added white speckles using a white gel pen. I used Crafty Foam tape to adhere it to the stenciled background.  I glued a few of the clear droplets and gold pieces around the whale from the Sparkletz-Coral Coast.

I stamped the sentiment in black and used the new Quick Strips Die set.  I love that it adds a little interest with the faux stitching. I tucked it under the whale, added a bit of gold cording and a teeny posy. 
Thank you so much for stopping by today! :) 
Have a great weekend!

Whimsy Stamps NEW January Release!!

Good morning!
Happy New Year!
I am excited to share one of Whimsy Stamp's newest releases called, Whale of a Time! 
These stamps are so much fun to color!
I wanted to make a few Valentine boxes and know that whales and porpoises aren't normally pink.
So I took a bit of creative license with these so they would match my treat boxes!
To create the pink "watery" background I used Whimsy's new stencil called, Speckled Heart and Tim Holtz Picked Raspberry ink.  I didn't use the heart part of it, but the outside edges.  I kept moving the stencil around to create the bubbles. 

To add to the "water" I used some of the clear droplets from the sequin mix called, Coral Coast. 
To pop up my panels for added dimension I used Crafty Foam tape under each layer.
The boxes themselves were cut using my Silhouette machine.
I tied a piece of white ribbon and added an additional sequin and clear drop to the center from the Coral Coast sequin pack.

Here is one final look at my project! 

Thank you all for stopping by!
