Whale You Be Mine!

Sorry, my picture sucks!  My whales are island indigo blue but the right whale looks pretty dark...

As soon as I saw the Oh, Whale! set in the Spring Catalog I knew I wanted it.  When I saw the color combination from Dynamic Duos I knew I wanted to use my whale stamp.

First off, I used the Cloudy Day embossing folder to emboss Whisper White cardstock.  I regretted this move later when I decided to put hearts coming out of the whale's blowhole.  I stamped a whale image then used the happy Whale Clearlits die to cut out the whale.  Then I used the die again to cut out another whale.  Coming from Hawaii, I love anything crafty (but NOT corny) that reminds me of Hawaii.  I found the wave die in a scrapbooking store that I discovered in Colorado Springs and I had to have it.  I thought these waves could work perfectly with my whales.  I layered the waves and I also threw in the fish that were cut out with the whale die since I had them.  I stamped the hearts and the sentiment in Melon Mambo ink.

Stampin' Up! Supplies:
Stamp: Oh, Whale!
Cardstock: Whisper White, Island Indigo, Melon Mambo; Blue Dotted Paper (Bazzill)
Embossing Folder: Cloudy Day
Dies: Clearlits Happy Whale; Wave (My Stash)
