Stampin’ Up! We’ll Walrus Be Ready For Birthdays

Happy Happy Hawwwwmp Day!!  Hope your week is going well!  I am sitting on pins-and-needles, waiting for the text saying my Pre-Order is at the gate.  Whoo-hooo!!  I’ll probably hop onto my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page to give you all a look-see….so if you’re interested, be sure to watch for notifications!! 🙂

In the meantime – let’s take a look at the card I made today!  It’s a birthday card using the uber-cute (and RETIRING!) We’ll Walrus Be Friends stamp set.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s Sunday Stamps challenge.

And the color palette is from the Cupcake Inspiration challenge.

I started with a piece of Purple Posy paper from the 2019-2021 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP (although the colors will still be around – these PATTERNS are retiring – so….get them quickly!  The Brights, Subtles and Neutrals are already gone!!).  I matted the paper on Purple Posy card stock with Liquid Glue for the card front.

A slightly narrower piece in Coastal Cabana (from the aforementioned sold out Brights 6″ x 6″ DSP) adhered over top is next.

I stamped the sweet We’ll Walrus Be Friends tusked-wonder in Smoky Slate on Whisper White and cut it with the largest circle Stitched Shapes die.  I colored the image with my Light Pool Party, Light Smoky Slate and Light Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends.  The Color Lifter Blend on his belly and schnoozle helped add a little dimension.

I stamped a couple of fish in Coastal Cabana and colored them with the Dark Pool Party Blend.  Then I adhered the circle to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the We’ll Walrus Be Friends sentiment in Coastal Cabana on a strip of Whisper White and snipped banner ends.  Then I popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

A single Purple Posy 2019-2021 In Color Faceted Gem on the sentiment strip finished off the card front.

On the inside, I added a second sentiment in Coastal Cabana on a Whisper White panel.  Then, there are three more Walruses (walrusi?) and fishes peeking in from all around!  A lone Purple Posy faceted gem finishes it off.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Purple Posy mat and then into my Smoky Slate card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a couple more walrusussusss and fishessessess on the front.

…and a little more Purple Posy DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  We’ll Walrus Be Friends is just adorable – with several different sweet images and fun sentiments.

So – don’t let this one….swim away from you! 😉

I hope you like!

If you were a squirrel…

You would be trembling in your furry tail….

Behold the absolute focus…

Good thing there’s a door there…

Be afraid, adorable rodent, be very afraid!

  1. Such a cute card! Love the colors and your little walrus is so sweet. 🙂 We have a similar laser focus on those rodents with with the fluffy tail here too…I’m not sure what Ginny would do if she ever actually caught one, but that hasn’t stopped her from trying! 😉
