Hi everyone! I have five little cards to show you today! I had some fun this week making 4 Bar size cards… they’re 3 ⅜ in. x 4 ⅞ in.! I’m a little worried the size will show correctly in the pictures so I wanted you to know right up front! I’m afraid they’ll look bigger in the pictures than they actually are in real life!
I used all new dies and stamps from the latest release.
This one I had fun with the Whittle Fish Trio die, Word Balloons die and Whittle Sealife Sentiments. I embellished it just a touch with the sea weed (not sure what they are) from the new Memory Box Deepwater Collage die.
I also used the new Memory Box cardstock pads. I will link them below.
My husband and grandsons like to fish so I’m sure this will be a hit!
Isn’t this Dolphin cute?
I used Whittle Dolphin, Whittle Sunshine, Whittle Wave Background and sentiment from Whittle Sealife Sentiments.
I like using dies to cut out the sentiment strip. For this one I used the smallest, narrow die from the new Memory Box Slim Basic Rectangle die set. I just run it back through to die cut the very end to get the right length.
I used Oxide inks on the doplhin and sunshine. The new Memory Box cardstock pad for the background.
I made this card first and it got me going on this size!
Whittle Sealife Sentiment stamps again…so fun! I love this sentiment! My sea comes from a bottle or fruit though! lol
I used the Whittle Seahorse and Whittle Seascape Background dies for this card.
I see I saved this picture a different size…oops… oh well, I think you can still see how cute it is!
I inked the background with Speckled Egg distress oxide ink and the seahorse with my brown oxide blending brush. I imagine it had vintage photo on it. I have a set of Taylored Expressions blending brushes I use for the Distress Oxide inks. I really, really like how they work for this kind of thing.
The next two cards don’t really coordinate with the first three. I didn’t have time to make more cards so there’d be sets yet, so be watching for more, I have some ideas!
Here I used Playful Happy Birthday and Whittle Snails! The sentiment is is ‘snail mail for you’ but I figured, why not use a snail instead of the word! hehe It’s from the Whittle Wild Animal Sentiments. Super, super fun sentiments in this set!
The cardstock I used is from the new Memory Box Cardstock pads again…love these pads! Oh and NEW gems! Links below.
I’m welcoming the ladies to the blog today! I like their advice! lol
Cute little Whittle Chickens, Whittle Wood Picture Frames, Word Balloons dies and more sentiments from the Whittle Wild Animals stamp set.
Memory Box has new woodgrain cardstock in light brown, cream and white! I’ll link below. I inked with Gathered Twigs Distress ink and spattered with a little water.
I hope I didn’t miss telling you anything but if I did, feel free to ask me!
Thank you so much for stopping by!
