Oh, Whale, for Father’s Day

DSC07372I love this cute little whale!  I saw a great Z-Card fold tutorial incorporating framelits and needed to give it a try.  The card technique is called a double swing card, and I found the instructions on Tami White’s blog here.

I used the print poetry paper, and on the other side used a retired greeting set for the Father’s day greeting.

New Cookie Stamps!

Check out these fun cookie stamps that are available now!  They missed their feature in the Holiday mini, so I wanted to make sure everyone knew about them 🙂  They come with a fabulous sugar cookie recipe that I tasted at convention, so very yummy!

Tricky Little Owl

Trick or Treat! This is a cutie owl from the new Holiday Mini exclusive hostess set called Warmest of Wishes.  I used a new to me technique that may or may not be called Clear Block Stamping which probably isn’t the name, but basically you ink up your block and stamp it directly on the paper for a neat background effect.

Stamps: Warmest of Wishes hostess, Teeny Tiny Wishes, Borderlines

Paper: Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black, Whisper White

Ink: Tangerine Tango, Basic Black

Accessories: Clear Blocks, mat pack, basic black 1/8 taffeta ribbon
