Well it's Mid-Inspiration time at Stampin' Celebration and we are changing things up a bit. Instead of creating a card using the picture from the 1st of the month, we have came up with a card sketch for you to try! Here's the sketch:
I really LOVE card sketches...I use them ALL the time to help me with my creativity on designing a card. So here is what I came up with for our Stampin' Celebration Sketch Challenge.
This is a set I won at Leadership in Januray! I hadn't purchased it yet and they picked my wristband as the winning one! I was excited so I thought I better get some use out of it and make a card using it. We had to use some scallops, which reminded me of waves, in the sketch so I thought this would be a perfect time to use it!
The Oh, Whale stamp set (129132) comes with 11 different images. I used the valentine greeting as I was mixed up on the date of when this post posted...yes, I'll admit I messed up :) But you could use ANY of the four greetings that come with this stamp set.
You can (hopefully) see by this picture that the whale is plumped up a little. I stamped the whale using Basic Gray Classic Ink (126981) on to Whisper White card stock (100730). I then used the coordinating Happy Whale Clearlits Die (129403) to cut out the whale, it is a perfect fit!
I also used the Designer Frames Folder (123130) to place the whale in. I cut a piece of Pool Party card stock (122924) to place inside the frame to add a little something to the center of the frame.
You will see in the video how I plumped up the whale but the items I used are the Paper Piercing Tool (126189) and the Stampin' Pierce Mat (126199) and finished it off with some Stampin' Dimensionals (104430).
We would love to have you stop by Stampin' Celebration to play along with this great card sketch we have this month! Card sketches are always fun and helps us create wonderful projects!
