Stampin Up Sunday – Whale of a time Dsp

OK confession time… I actually made these during the craftalong zoom session I had a few weeks ago and have saved them up for a Stampin Up Sunday blog.

I was using the Whale of a Time dsp I had been given and I’ve nearly finished using it up… probably got enough for another 2 or 3 cards max.

I decided to fill the backgrounds on the cardblanks and then layer up panels before adding the fussy cut whales/ turtles and some dies cuts and a sentiment.

There are just so cute! Love how they all came out and they were super simple to make.

I have to admit I would never have bought this paper but it is gorgeous and fun to play with and because of the ones you can cut apart to create the focal points you don’t need to also have the coordinating stamps to work with it!

Happy crafting!


Itty Bitty Greetings, Whale of a time

Stampin Up Sunday… Whale of a time

Todays blog post nearly didn’t happen… I went into the craft room, found a bomb had hit so decided to tidy up… if you enjoy such things the video is going to be on YouTube when I’ve edited it… I will pop the link in once it’s up and running!


Anyway after tidying up I wasn’t sure what to make… I did however spot on the bookcase some of the Whale of a Time bits and pieces and recided today was the day to make a turtle card for my friend.

I used a couple of different papers and then a stitched shape die for the circle. The turtle was fussy cut out of another piece of the patterned paper and then added some little die cuts from the stash (I have a little tin in which I keep leftover dies from other projects… perfect for little makes like this!).

I decided the sentiment from Itty Bitty Greetings would work well – my friend gifted me a lovely bottle of gin, hence the card.

I finished off with the gems which are beautiful and iridescent and work perfectly with the ocean feel!

So there you go… it turned out to be a quick project for todays Stampin Up Sunday… but I love it!

Happy crafting!


Forever Flourishing, From all of us, One Sheet Wonder OSW, Petals and more, Whale of a time

Whale of a Time one sheet wonder

Whilst doing the zoom crafting sessions with my friends I hadn’t got quite enough supplies to make the same cards up… so I used the Whale of a Time dsp and some coordinating cardstock. I die cut some elements that I thought would work as seaweed too.

Here they are…

Love how fun and bright they are!

A couple of the sheets of paper are perfect for cutting apart and so I could use the whales and turtles as focal points.

I also added in some linen thread on a few.

Card 1:

Card 2

Card 3

Card 4

Card 5

Card 6

Card 8

For all of them I used the sentiment from the From all of us stanp set.

Happy crafting!
