Whale-come Little One

Hello friends - thanks so much for stopping by.  I have a little change of pace for you today - a friend had these gorgeous Taylored Expressions Showered with Love stamp set and I just HAD TO create something with them - how perfect are they for a baby card!

I have stamped the whales using Imagine Memento ink in London Fog, the waves in Teal Zeal and the water spout in Tuxedo Black - the hearts have been coloured using Chameleon Pens.

The sun has been cut/embossed using yellow card stock and the Spellbinders Nestabilities Fancy Edged Circles Etched Dies and yellow card stock along with the Platinum 6 Die Cutting and Embossing Machine - 6" Platform The cloud is from the Spellbinders Die D-Lites Sun and Clouds Etched Dies - I find that I use this cloud a lot with whimsical images - just the right size!

The card front has been cut using light blue card stock and the Nestabilities Scored and Pierced Rectangles Etched Dies.  This has  been popped up onto a slightly larger white card base using  Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares.   Next the Fancy Edges Circle has been adhered to the top portion of the card base using double sided tape.  The waves have been fussy cut/hand cut using scissors and popped up 3cm from the base of the card front also using 3D Foam Squares.

The larger Whale has been adhered above the waves using double sided tape, the baby Whale popped up next to her using 3D Foam Squares for dimension.  The water spout has been fussy cut/hand cut using scissors, the hearts coloured and adhered above the whales head using double sided tape.

The sentiment -a retired sentiment from Layers of Colour - which sadly is no longer, has been stamped using Tuxedo Black ink and cut/embossed using the tag from the Amazing Paper Grace Vintage Elegance Becca Feeken Giving Occasions Stamp and Die Set.  The die has been used as a stencil and sponged using Summer Sky Ink inside the cutting lines.  This has been popped up using 3D Foam Squares centred below the waves.  Imagine irRESISTibles Pico Embellisher in Shimmer has been used to create faux water drops around the water spout and the hearts have also had a coat added - for that extra shimmer.
