have a whale of a time!!
Yesterday I had a brown box delivered yesterday morning while I was have breakfast, I just LOVE the sound a Stampin' Up! brown box being placed on my doorstep!!! lol In it it had some lovely products - some were orders for customers and some were for ME!!! One of the new products was a new die called 'Happy Whale' (a sneak peek from the next mini catalogue) - isn't he cute! I decided I HAD to make a card straight away with it, but thought I wanted water ripples and it dawned on me to use the 'woodgrain' embossing folder that what is introduced in the current Holiday Catalogue. I used the new co-ordinates card in Pool Party and I sanded it slightly the sponged the Island Indigo around the 'eye' in the grain and at the top of the strip of card. Then I used a craft knife and cut a slit big enough to fit my cute whale in. I then added some white gel pen lines to help the look of the ripples. The cute little Calypso Coral fishes are also part of the die along with a wee heart, star and the cutest wee anchor you have ever seen!! The sentiment is also heat embossed in a new upcoming product - Pool Party Embossing Powder.
Hope you all have a lovely weekend :)
