Have a whale of a time

Today has been a challenging day, not only with my 4 year old, but also with my crafting. I needed to decompress so I made three cards.  Three cards I should not post to my blog.  Three cards that should probably should be introduced to the garbage……

This one is the best of the bunch.  I started with stamping Practicing Creativity’s For the Love of Dots to my background in Versamark to my Spring Rain cardstock and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I don’t know why, but for some reason, I never get a great heat embossed image… I must be doing something wrong!! LOL

I just got my new Spellbinders Nestabilities Label Eight die and I love it!!!! I used matching Spring Rain ink and sponged the center of the die cut, leaving the outline white, like I did in this card inspired by Gina K’s. I just loved the framed look. I found some fun October Afternoon patterned paper and paper pieced the whale image from Lawnfawn’s Critter by the Sea. I took the bubbles and filled them with Glossy Accents and adhered the label with pop dots.

I was inspired by the latest Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, but took some creative liberty! I flipped my card sideways and used the bubbles as the two square images…. Hope that’s ok!!!!
