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!

Good Neighbors Movers & Shapers Heart Card

The Movers & Shapers Die for the Big Shot makes awesome window cards, and in the case of a corresponding punch, the window is a little larger to allow for layering and allowing the punched image to pop out.

Here, I didn’t use the Full Heart Punch (but that would coordinate with this). Instead I used the Magnetic Movers and Shapers Heart and Kraft card stock to make the card base. Then, I stamped “congratulations” from Well Scripted in Chocolate chip Craft ink and heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder.

Inside, I layered Very Vanilla card stock and stamped the houses from Good Neighbors. Then, I stamped them again onto a scrap of Very Vanilla and trimmed out the pieces with my scissors. I attached the cut out pieces on top of the stamped images using Stampin Dimensionals. Above the houses, I stamped clouds from the same set in Soft Sky ink.

Outside, I tied 5/8″ Chocolate Chip Grosgrain Ribbon. I think it makes a nice card for someone buying their first house!

Good Neighbors 3 Versions

Version 1: Brocade Blue card stock base layered with Close to Cocoa and Autumn Meadows DSP. The stamped images are from Good Neighbors. Ink colors of houses are from left to right: close to cocoa, brocade blue, old olive, and so saffron ink.  The roofs are stamped in river rock, close to cocoa, and basic gray. I stamped them on Very Vanilla card stock, layered with Close to Cocoa and a strip of Dusty Durango card stock punched with the Scallop Trim Border Punch.

Version 2: Brocade Blue card stock layered with Close to Cocoa layered with Autumn Meadows DSP. Again, I stamped the houses from Good Neighbors on Very Vanilla card stock, matted with Close to Cocoa and attached to the base with Stampin Dimensionals. The sentiment is from So Many Sayings, stamped in close to cocoa ink on Very Vanilla, punched out with the Word Window Punch and layered on the Modern Label Punch in Dusty Durango, attached with Dimensionals.

Version 3: Old Olive card stock base layered with Tall Tales DSP in a dotted/striped pattern. I stamped Good Neighbors on Very Vanilla card stock, using my SU Markers to color the stamps. I layered that onto So Saffron card stock and then Chocolate Chip card stock.
