Craftie Cafe - Whale Hello There (Video)

Hi everyone, Eloise here for Craftie Café and today I’ll be using the Whale Hello There stamp set from Memory Box along with the Waves Dies from Avery Elle to create a summery Hello card. I’ll also be using some Distress Oxide Inks and Lawn Fawn Glitter to help create the card.

To begin, I stamped the images from Whale Hello There with black ink onto some watercolour paper and then used some Mijello Misson Gold Watercolours to colour my images in. Once I coloured my images, I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. Next, I took a piece of blue cardstock, but you could use white and used four colours of Distress Oxide inks in CrackedPistachio, Broken China, Salty Ocean and Faded Jeans to ink blend a gradient onto my paper. I then flicked on some water, picked it up with a paper towel to create a water splotch effect and then dried it with a heat tool. Next, I lined it up on the Waves dies from Avery Elle and ran it through my Big Shot Machine.

I then poked out all the inner pieces of my background die and put them to the side to save them for a later project. I then decided to coat a piece of white cardstock with double sided adhesive and pour over some Prisma Glitter from Lawn Fawn, burnish it in with a bone folder and my fingers to create a sparkly, glittery background for my waves. I then added adhesive around all four sides of my waves background and adhered it over my glitter background. I used foam tape to adhere all my images into place, then whiteheat embossed the sentiment from Whale Hello There onto a strip of blackcardstock. I adhered that also onto my panel with more foam tape. Lastly, I adhered my panel onto a white card base and that finished up my card for today.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I’ll catch you next time!
