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.

Fun Fold Friday Whale Done

Happy Friday! You made it through the week- Whale Done! Now for some fun!

The Whale Done stamp set has these sweet sea creatures so you can make a splash with any card! This fun fold is called a Fold Back Card.

The colors used in this fun fold card are:

Measurements: 12 x 12 inch Pretty Peacock Card Stock(CS) card base: cut to 4 1/4 x 11 inches and scored at 2 3/4 and 5 1/2 inches; 8 1/2 x 11 inch Pretty Peacock CS: 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 inches; Whisper White CS: 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 inches, 2 1/2 x 4 inches and 1 1/4 x 2 inches; Whale of a Time Designer Series Paper (DSP): small fish design: 4 x 5 1/4 inches, sea horse design: 2 1/2 x 4 inches and the underwater scene design: 3 1/8 x 4 1/8 inches.

Stamp the sentiment “it’s your DAY!” from the Itty Bitty Birthday set in Pretty Peacock ink onto the 1 1/4 x 2 inch Whisper White CS. Trim this down to 3/4 x 1 1/4 inches to fit on the front of the card.

Stamp the sentiment “Hoping all your birthday fishes come true” from the Whale Done set in Pretty Peacock ink onto the center of the 2 1/2 x 4 inch Whisper White CS. Add the little school of fish in several places in Pretty Peacock ink.

Stamp the sea turtle and whale in Pretty Peacock ink onto the 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 inch Whisper White CS. Position the whale at the bottom as shown so you can use the Whale Builder Punch.

Use the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Marker in Light Just Jade to color the sea turtle. Use the Dark Just Jade marker to color the outer edge of the shell and to enhance the shadowed areas.

Use the Light and Dark Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blend Alcohol Marker to color in the middle portion of the whale.

Punch out the whale with the Whale Builder Punch. Fussy cut the sea turtle leaving the same amount of white outline as is on the whale.

Fold the 4 1/4 x 11 inch Pretty Peacock CS card base in half at the 5 1/2 inch score line. Use the Bone Folder to get a crisp fold.

Now fold back the top of the card base. Separate it from the underlying layer to use the Bone Folder. The end result is a “Z” fold.

Adhere the corresponding panels to the Pretty Peacock CS card base as shown.

Apply Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the sea turtle, whale, and the trimmed down sentiment.

Adhere under the sea scene design of the Whale of a Time DSP to the 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 inch Pretty Peacock CS. Add the sentiment, turtle, and whale.

To apply the top of the card position it then flip it over and make a light pencil mark. This will help you get the Stampin’ Dimensionals in the right place.

Adhere the front of the card to the top panel of the card base. The Stampin’ Dimensionals will not be showing on the under side.

This is the completed card lying flat on the table.

Viola! You have a splashy card to send off to someone and wish them a Happy Birthday!

Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you try this card. It is not too difficult once you have made it once or twice.
