Today, I saw a card made by Dorothee Coudroy and I HAD to attempt it. I just couldn’t believe that there was actually water in the card. She has a tutorial on her YouTube channel, so I decided to check it out. Unfortunately for me, the tutorial was 100% in French, and while I could understand about 1 in 10 words (my French is BEYOND rusty}, the tutorial was so well done that I was able to grasp the basic construction concept. I am so thrilled with the results!
I changed a few things from Dorothee’s card, but kept it pretty close to see if I could make it work. I honestly didn’t expect to have such great success right out of the gate!
If you need any of the supplies used to make this card, just click the “Add to Cart” button and it will do the work for you. (Sorry, it won’t make the card for you!)
As always, thanks for visiting! If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out!
Here is another card made using the Whale of A Time Suite. This time, I decided to try a shaker card. It didn’t turn out quite as I had hoped, but all in all I am happy with it. I decided to color my seam binding using my ink pad and was too impatient to let it dry… I ended up with a smudge on my card, so I used a dauber to add ink to the embossed image.

Today, I had a ton of fun playing with the Whale of A Time Suite, which was just released in the new catalog on July 1st.
I made two A2 cards that are virtually the same, one a congratulations card, and one a thank you card, by just changing the sentiment. I cased these cards from my dear friend, Sue @creativedesignsbysue, a Stampim Up demonstrator in Australia.
For these cards, I used the following supplies:
Stamps: Whale Done
Dies: Layering Circles, Tasteful Labels
Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Night of Navy
Ink: Night of Navy
Misc: Seabed Embossing Folder, Night of Navy Twine
