Hello and welcome to today’s blog post, which is a fun and easy card featuring the Whale Done stamp set and the Whale Builder Punch! Have you ever stamped and embossed your DSP? I know not all designs you can do this, however, when I saw the dot design from the Pattern Party DSP, I thought this would be perfect with the Whale Done stamp set and why not experiment by stamping images and embossing? Since the whale can be punched out, I decided to use a wobble, which gives the whale that extra added cuteness!
For the base layer, I used this design from the Pattern Party DSP, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”. To stamp the scenery:
1. Use Crumb Cake ink to stamp the large seagrass along the bottom at different heights and stamp the turtle two times as shown, like they are moving along in the water.
2. Use Just Jade ink to stamp the small seagrass as “filler” in between the large seagrass at different heights and first and second generation stamping, and stamp the seahorse twice, like they are wrapping their tails around the seagrass.
3. Use Bermuda Bay ink to stamp the school of fish, you can turn the block upside down and the fish will be going in the opposite direction.
4. Emboss the stamped DSP base layer with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.
For the rest of the card front, you will need:
1. First ink the whale stamp in Soft Sea Foam ink and then use a sponge dauber with Just Jade ink to sponge onto the stamp along the top and bottom of the whale.
2. Use the Pool Party Sheer Ribbon into a double bow and then use the White Baker’s Twine, from the Baker’s Twine Essentials Pack, to tie into another bow around the middle of the Pool Party double bow.
3. Stamp the sentiment in Bermuda Bay ink on Basic White cardstock and use the shaped die from Tasteful Labels Dies to die-cut out.
4. One wobble.
Since all the work is stamped and embossed on the base layer, just adhere the die-cut sentiment as shown, use a couple of glue dots to adhere the ribbon, and adhere the wobble to the punched-out whale and place on the DSP base layer as shown. This completed piece is adhered to a Thick Basic White cardstock card base, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½”:
For the inside, I cut another piece of Basic White at 4” x 5 ¼”, adhere a ¾” x 4” piece of the same DSP design along the bottom, stamp the sentiment and school of fish along the bottom of the DSP in Bermuda Bay, and stamp the school of fish in the opposite direction along the top in Pool Party ink:
Isn’t this super easy card so stinking cute?? I really like how embossing the DSP really gives it some depth, versus just stamped images on paper! Have you checked out the Pattern Party DSP?
