Stampin’ Up! Whale Done Mate for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good morning, y’all – welcome to another edition of Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team blog hop!  Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month our theme is Birthdays!  We can interpret that any way we want – so…be sure to check and see everyone’s projects – we’ve got a bunch of talented ladies hopping with us this month!

I’ve been wanting to play with the new Whale Done stamp set and the amazing Whale of a Time DSP since I saw it in the new catalog.  So…I was really happy to see a birthday sentiment in it so I could use it today!  And…I did – and even paired it with another GREAT stamp set – the Many Mates set.  Take a look-see:


The layout for this one is from this week’s FabFriday sketch challenge.

I started with a piece of Pacific Point card stock.  Using the coral image from Whale Done, I stamped all over the panel in Pacific Point ink.  Then I used Pretty Peacock to stamp the fish-school image and the bubbles.

Once the panel was covered, I embossed it in the new Seabed 3D Embossing Folder.  Y’all – this might be my fave folder yet!  I mean…look at this beauty!!

Once I’d embossed the panel, I trimmed it to 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ and then adhered it to the front of my Pacific Point card base with Liquid Glue.

I cut two pieces of the STUNNING new Whale of a Time DSP…

On the fishes panel, I inked and stamped a sentiment from Many Mates in Versamark Ink.  Then I sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heated it up with my Heat Tool.

I matted both panels on Bumble Bee cardstock.

I adhered the Calypso Coral panel with Liquid Glue, then popped the sentiment panel on top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using little dabs of Liquid Glue, I adhered a bunch of little Whale of a Time Sequins – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped the Whale Done sentiment in Pacific Point on a Whisper White panel.  Across the bottom, I added some Pacific Point coral, Pretty Peacock fishes and stamped-off-once Pretty Peacock bubbles.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Bumble Bee mat and into the Pacific Point card base and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more of the Whale Done undersea scene on the front…

…and more of the Calypso Coral Whale of a Time DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I am really loving this Whale Done stamp set – and it’s got a matching (and bundled!) punch!

And – I’ve said it before and will say it again…the Many Mates set is a real WORKHORSE of a sentiment set – and one you NEED in your stash!

I hope you like – and…yep.  Have added them all to your want-it-gotta-get-it list!!

    Hi Mary,
    I just love your card today…..I’ve had my eye on this ‘whale’ set from the beginning…..and the gorgeous paper and the PUNCH!! A few other things edged it out in my first order….(which is still only in ‘picking’ and I’m not very patiently waiting). Now I will probably wait until July to order so it will go towards the next quarter. I’m waaaaaaaaay over what I need for the quarter ending in June. Oh well… much to look forward to. Please, Please makes more cards with this set…..I just love it.

    • stampsnlingers

      LOL! I understand TOTALLY about being WAY over! 🙂 July is right around the corner, thank goodness! Thanks very much, Faith! 🙂

    So cute and creative, Mary. I love the color combo, sketch and DSP. TFS!

  12. What a great card! THis set is on my wish list. However, I wish you had shown the embossed panel before you covered it up.

    • stampsnlingers

      Shoot. I totally should have taken that picture! 🙁 I’m so sorry, Julie. Thanks!

  13. Gerri K

    Mary, Mary, Mary,
    I was so sure that I could skip this Whale Done stamp set and dsp and look what you’ve done. This card is awesome!!! I thought the set was too cutesy but I was wrong. Now I can’t wait to order it. I did however have the foresight to order the embossing folder. That also looks amazing.
    Thanks for sharing.

    • stampsnlingers

      The embossing folder IS awesome! And – like you said, this suite is way cooler and way LESS kid-sy than one might think! It’s pretty darned cool – and the paper is STUNNING! Thanks verymuch, Gerri! 🙂

      • Gerri K

        WooHoo! Right after I read your response, the mail came with your paper shares. This paper is even more awesome in person. So much fun to be had with one big package. Thanks.

      • stampsnlingers

        Yeah!! Have fun with it all! 🙂

  14. Kathy Fennell
