Oh, Whale...

Hello Stampers! How's your week going?  Mine is going good.  I came across another blog challenge this week that I wanted to try out.  There are so many cool ideas at the Hand Stamped Sentiments blog to inspire you using these three colors.  You can check out them out here.

I had this idea in my head for awhile now and I am so excited with how it came out!!  I used the Oh, Whale! stamp set from the current spring catalog to create a penny spinner card.  Oh my goodness, the whale is super, duper cute! And when you use it with the Happy Whale clearlit die, easy!  Have you created a card using the penny spinner technique before? Using the DSP with the waves from the Sunshine & Sprinkles DSP worked out perfect for my card. 

The butterfly stamp from A Fitting Occasion is small and detailed enough to not overwhelm the card. I couldn't resist using the googly eyes from the past Holiday catalog. I inked the sentiment in lucky limeade. 

Well I better get going friends.  Thanks for stopping by. Until next time.
