Whale Hello There!! ....


I am a big fan of nautical / sea themed stamps and recently I have acquired quite a few new ones - some have been gifts :)

Lisette found a set that I have been looking for and gave it to me for Christmas :)

It's by Recollections and they made a few fun sets last year and I have most of them, but this one eluded me..

Last weekend, I decided it was time for a play..

I stamped, coloured and die-cut the whale from the set and I chose all the background papers from my stash.

I was a bit thrown by how to anchor my Whale and add the sentiment, I tried waves stencils and didn't love that. So I was looking through my dies and saw the stitched arch dies by MFT and in the die wallet was a yellow one all die-cut and ready to go and it worked, so I die-cut 3 more to coordinate with my backgrounds.

I did a variant on the sentiment and added 'birthday boy', as I thought the cards were quite masculine!

I love how they came out, they work really well as a set.
