Cardz 4 Guyz Challenge # 251- Gone Fishing with Whale Done

The Cardz4Guyz Challenge #251 is Gone Fishing. I didn’t have any fishing stamp sets, but I do have a big fish in the fun Whale Done stamp set and some great Whale of a Time Designer Series Paper (DSP).

The card base is Night Of Navy cardstock. The next layer is Misty Moonlight. For the Granny Apple Green panel I embossed it with the Seabed 3D Embossing Folder. Next I used a Sponge Dauber to sponge on some Granny Apple Green ink and highlight the fabulous design made by the embossing. Inside the card, I used a panel of Whisper White card stock, then adhered a 1 inch strip of the little fish pattern of the DSP with an edge of Night Of Navy card stock.

I first stamped the whale in Misty Moonlight ink. I used the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers in Light and Dark Balmy Blue, and Light and Dark Misty Moonlight to enhance the whales features. I used the Basic Black Stampin’ Write marker to bring out the whales smile and eye, and add shadow to the fin. I punched the whale out with the Whale Builders Punch. I used the Whale of a Time Sequins to add “bubbles” above the whale and the little fish.

The fun and colorful little fish pattern of the Whale of a Time DSP on the card front is bordered by Daffodil Delight card stock.

Cardz4Guyz Challenge # 243 Use Dies as a Main Feature

Here is a little extra post for the avid stamper. It is for the Cardz4Guyz Challenge #243 to Use Dies as a Main Feature.

I am so looking forward to the day when we will be able to be outside and have family and friends over for a big barbecue! That thought is what inspired me to make this card.

I used a lot of different products for this scene. The Stampin’ Up!® products are listed below.

Do you see all the lovely yellow butterflies! And don’t forget a drink!

Congratulations

This is the time of year I just love because of all the beautiful flowers and blooms everywhere, even here in the desert. This crocus is peeking out from a background of Agave. It always seems a bit too busy though!

I am still in a splint from my joint replacement surgery, but am starting to feel a little better. I have a great card for a congratulations which I had designed for the class I held this past weekend. With the help of several friends, I was able to have class! I would not have been able to do it without Julie, Amanda and Jeanne doing the prep for me! Thank you!

Here is the card which can be used for a variety of congratulatory situations. It is made with Stampin’ Up!’s Dandelion Wishes stamp set which is in the Annual Catalog. The “Congratulations” sentiment is from the Well Said stamp set in the Occasions Catalog.

I am sorry that I cannot do photographs to show you how this is made right now. I hope to be able to so in the next 2-3 weeks. I am trying not to do too much so everything heals up really well. Easier said than done! I hope to have another card to at least show you soon!
