A Whale of a Valentine {Fox & Friends}

This card is too cute! I’m sure you’ve seen this type of card before, using the Slit Punch to make waves, but I’ve been anxious to try it with the whale from Fox and Friends in a Valentine’s Day format. I think I will give this one to my little nephew for his first Vday.

The card base is Bermuda Bay, layered with a 4″x5 1/4″ piece of Whisper White. I used Bashful Blue DSP from a Prints Pack in this polka dot pattern. (Side note: I admit it, I know I need to stop using the polka dots, but I just can’t!)

I made the “waves” by lining up the Slit Punch along the bottom edge of the Bashful Blue DSP. Keep punching, making sure all the slits touch one another slightly. Then, flip the paper upside down and you have your “waves”. I sponged the waves with Bashful Blue ink and a Sponge Dauber. Next, I layered 3 pieces of the “wave” DSP using Stampin Dimensionals and SNAIL adhesive. Here is a side view so you can see the layering:

The whales, from Fox and Friends were stamped in Basic Gray ink on Whisper White card stock. I wiped off the heart using a toothpick and colored it in with Real Red marker before stamping. Then, I trimmed each one out and adhered them to the card.

At the bottom, I stamped “happy valentine’s day” from A Happy Heart in Basic Gray ink on Whisper White and stamped the little heart from Goody Goody Gumdrops in Real Red ink on top. Then, I punched it out with the Word Window Punch and layered it onto Bermuda Bay punched with the Modern Label Punch. That is attached to the base with Stampin Dimensionals.

Finally, I added some clouds from Good Neighbors in Bashful Blue ink to make a sky.

Thanks for looking, it was a fun card to make and I’m happy to share it with you!

3 Little Monkeys Jumping…Valentine’s Day Card


If you have kids I’m sure you know where that title comes from! Instead of 3 little monkeys jumping on the bed, I decided to have them jumping on big red hearts.  I know we’re about a month and half away from Valentine’s Day but I love that holiday because it involves a lot of chocolate!

This card uses a few new stamp sets from the Occasions Mini including Fox and Friends, Well Scripted, and I {Heart} Hearts, all of which I bought in the new clear mount option. The Occasions Mini goes live Tuesday January 5th for anyone who is interested.

The base is Pink Pirouette card stock, layered with Chocolate Chip Designer Series Paper in my favorite polka dot pattern. I stamped the monkey from Fox and Friends 3 times in Chocolate Chip Craft Ink and heat embossed it with Clear Embossing Powder. Underneath, I stamped the dotted heart from I {Heart} Hearts in Real Red ink twice. The hearts the monkeys are holding are from I {Heart} Hearts, stamped in Real Red ink and punched out using the new Small Heart Punch, attached to the card with a Mini Glue Dot.

Along the bottom, I wrapped a piece of 5/8″ Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon around the Chocolate Chip DSP (which is attached to the base with Dimensionals). The sentiment is from Well Scripted, stamped in Real Red ink on Pink Pirouette card stock, punched with the Scallop Oval Punch. I attached it with Dimensionals and also Paper Pierced the scallops to coordinate with the polka dot background paper.
