I just couldn’t help but fall in love with the Oh, Whale stamp set and this fabulously fun Sunshine & Sprinkles designer series paper! (This stamp set and dsp will be discontinued at the end of May.)
I kept it simple again by using the same card layout from yesterday’s butterfly creation. And the matching whale sizzlit die makes it a snap to cut this little baby out. I added a touch of Dazzling Diamonds glitter to highlight this cute Melon Mambo creature, and after trimming it out with the coordinating Happy Whale clearlit die, I popped it up with dimensionals. (A clearlit die is a die with a window for perfect placement.)
I also added a little Dazzling Diamonds glitter sporadically to the ‘waves’ in the paper. I stamped ‘hello baby’ from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set in coordinating Pretty in Pink (a color retiring next month).
A friend had out-patient shoulder surgery this week. She has been in pain for quite a while, so she was excited to have this surgery in hopes of some relief. I made this card to cheer her up and give her something pretty to look at while she is resting.
The flowers on this card are made with the flowers punched out with the Boho Blossoms Punch and the technique described in this tutorial below.
I punched five each of the different-sized blossoms from Regal Rose card stock, spritzed them with water, and layered them to create the three flowers. I then adhered each to a matching Bravo Burgandy blossom base.
The leaves were punched out of Summer Starfruit card stock with the Bird Builder Punch, the stems trimmed and glued behind the flower base.
To create the greeting label, I started with a Whisper White card stock, and repeatedly stamped the doily from the Delicate Doilies stamp set with Regal Rose ink stamped off once for a lighter application. The greeting is from the Thoughts & Prayers stamp set stamped with a StazOn ink pad.
After I did all my stamping, I positioned the Labels Collection Framelit to surround the greeting, ‘taped’ it down with post-it notes to keep it in place, and ran it through my Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine. I also die cut a second label out of Regal Rose card stock of the larger-sized framelit for layering.
To finish the card I embossed Whisper White card stock with the Perfect Polka Dot embossing folder, layered on Bravo Burgandy card stock, added ribbon and assembled the card.
This card reminds me of my friend’s gentle southern charm! I hope she likes it.
