Forever Flourishing, From all of us, In Bloom, Tap tap tap, Whale of a time

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!

Forever Fern, Forever Flourishing, Forever Greenery, From all of us, Scalloped tag topper

Stampin Up Sunday – forever greenery tags

Today I have a project using the Scalloped Tag Topper. Yes I know I’ve been making loads of tags recently but I’m obsessed with this punch! I don’t own a massive amount of punches and rarely grab them, but this is such a good staple to have in your stash for making pretty tags. Must remember to use it more.

All you need is a strip 2″ wide and then punch the top and hey presto a pretty tag has emerged!

I used Soft sea foam as the base and onto this I stamped in soft suede and then a green embossing powder the dots from Forever Fern.

I then added a strip of Forever Greenery dsp. Then a Pear Pizazz die cut and a sentiment (from all of us) white embossed onto shaded spruce.

The ribbon was a bit of seam binding and some twine from the stash.

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 7

Card 8

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

From all of us, Watercolour paint

Stampin Up Sunday… from all of us

Last weekend I grabbed some time to do some colouring experiments with a new stamp set I’d had delivered … From all of us. I thought this was a super cute image and it’s quite a large focal image so good to get some colouring practice on.

I grabbed some whisper white and some watercolour card and stamped it using a variety of inks to try some different effects…

And then I had a colouring spree…

Oddly the one I chose to play with first and make into something was the splodgy mess one…

I had made a right old mess on this and wasn’t entirely sure if I could rescue it. Well the monkey I decided was beyond rescue but the ostrich, bear and bird (toucan?) seemed like they might be worth salvaging.

A few colouring pencils came out to strengthen the lines and features… then chop with the trimmer… outline the edge and mount on white…

Yup… happy with this one!

I found the patterned paper in the stash and mounted it on green with the green stamped sentiment cut at angles…

All in all it made this a quirky and fun card! So pleased I persevered.

It’s a good value red rubber stamp set this one… only £20 for the 8 stamps in the set… and can’t wait to see what I do with the rest of the coloured images…. not sure they will end up looking as funky as this one! If you fancy this stamp set just let me know and I can order it for you… inkyfingeredcat@yahoo.com
