Thinking of You Cards

Whale Done Friends

They say that summer doesn't really start here in the Seattle area until after the 4th of July.  It was a few days late but it looks like summer has arrived!  When I think of summer I think of the beach, which may be why I keep reaching for the Whale of a Time suite.

In today's card the Whale of a Time 6" x 6" DSP does most of the work.  This pack of DSP is so much fun  and perfect to create fun underwater scenes.  One of the whales was punched out from the DSP using the Whale Builder punch and the other was stamped. I used the Stamparatus to do a reverse image of the whale and then fussy cut it out.  The sentiment is from the Peaceful Moments stamp set.

Sneak Peek: Jar of Flowers Again

I am back with another sneak peek using the Jar of Flowers bundle.  This time I am pairing it up with a product that is retiring, The Bird Ballad Laser-Cut Cards & Tin.  I just checked and it is still available for purchase and it is even discounted!  The tin and the cards are beautiful so be sure to order them soon.

The Jar of Flowers bundle is a 9 piece photopolymer stamp set with a coordinating Jar punch.  There are 4 different flower arrangements in the set and they are all fun to color.  I posted a sample with one of the other flower arrangements a couple of days ago.  This arrangement was colored using Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, Bermuda Bay, Poppy Parade, Pool Party, and Old Olive Stampin' Blends.  The sentiment is from the Lovely You stamp set. I love the mix of fonts in this set.

I lined the front of the Bird Ballad Laser-Cut card with So Saffron cardstock.  I cut the So Saffron cardstock 4-1/8" x5-3/8" and adhered it to the inside of the card front.using a thin line of  Multipurpose Liquid Glue. 

I also added a Pool Party butterfly using the Butterfly Beauty dies.

Here is the card without the little butterfly.  Which do you like better?  It is a tiny detail and maybe hardly noticeable.

Hope you liked this sneak peek of this wonderful bundle!  Remember, the new Annual Catalog will go live on June 3.  If you would like a catalog and do not have a Stampin' Up!® demonstrator please contact me.  Thank you!
