Which Stamp Set is More Adorable?
When my holiday catalog pre-order arrived yesterday, the absolutely adorable We’ll Walrus Be Friends stamp set was in the box as well. Personally, I am not sure which set is cuter, Over the Moon or this one. It really doesn’t matter, though, because I now have both sets. I really wanted to start stamping as soon as I opened the box. However, I forced myself to put most of the items away before I started. I thought a basically monochromatic Seaside Spray card would work when playing along with this week’s Fusion challenge.
Here’s the Fusion challenge banner:
I love the simplicity of the sketch, but also love the cascading family hands. Therefore, I decided to incorporate an additional layer in my card.
Here’s my card:
I don’t have the High Seas 3D embossing folder, yet, since it is on backorder. However, I thought this pattern of the In Color DSP would work well. I must say, even my husband thought it worked well for a water effect.
The walrus on ice stamp seemed to fit the panel I wanted to use, especially since I’d used the largest Stitched Nested Die Labels. Obviously, I cut the tops off after I used the straight line of stitching. I found out that it would be much, much easier to use the straight line of stitches by temporarily securing it to the cropped die using a Post-it note.
Even with using the largest two dies, the walrus’ ice didn’t fit on the white panel. Therefore, I stamped on the white panel, then also stamped on the Seaside Spray panel. Using the Stamparatus with the grid paper made the process of lining everything up so easy!
I colored the walrus with the Smoky Slate blends combo, and used with my new Seaside Spray blends combo to color the ice. While I did stamp a complete walrus/ice on the bottom banner, I only needed to color in the ends of the ice. At this point, I realized I forgot to order the full size dimensionals so I now have less than one sheet of them. I used the dimensionals to pop up the white banner then glued the rest of the layers into place.
Not Quite Done
I was very happy that I had ordered the holiday Seaside Spray ribbon, and it helped hid my cropping issues at the top of the Seaside Spray banner. Ribbon that can also add bling ~ yes, please.
I looked at what I thought I had finished for a day and finally thought I needed to add a little something. The Stamping Blends easily color the Pearl Jewels, so I pulled out the Seaside Spray dark blend. I colored five of the smallest pearls and let them sit to dry. Believe me, you need to let colored pearls dry completely, let my lesson learned help you.
As always, I decorated the envelope flap with another Seaside Spray pattern from the In Color DSP. I finished the envelope with a quick stamp of another walrus stamp. Now, I can say this is done.
Thank you for stopping by today to check out We’ll Walrus Be Friends for this week’s Fusion challenge.
Happy a Peachy day!
