I love this little Whale You stamp set (page 5 in the Spring Catalog) for so many different reasons......let me count the ways! 1. It was FREE! This stamp set is one of the Bloom Benefits FSJ offers - free with a $50 purchase. 2. It makes it easy to create a Valentine's Day card that isn't your traditional pink/red/purple color combination. 3. Perfect for kids and adults. 4. It's just plain adorable! I mass produced this card so I wanted something fairly clean and simple, but still cute! The base of the card is Whip Cream card stock. I stamped the cloud from the Hello Puddles stamp set in Pool Play ink and the 'Whale You Be My Valentine?' sentiment from the FREE Whale You stamp set in Blue Lagoon ink. The waves are die cut from Blue Lagoon and Huckleberry Fusion card stock using the Border Basics dies. My cute little whale was stamped in Black Licorice ink on Pool Play card stock and fussy cut because he doesn't have a die.....yet. We should ask Richard to hook us up! Hey, it worked with the Donut Worry set which now has a bundle! I popped the whale up using Journey Foam Squares because I love to give my cards some dimension. I stamped the hearts for his whale spout (also part of this FREE set!) in Blue Lagoon ink. To embellish, I wrapped the Whip Cream Thread around the 'wave' a few times and tied a bow, stuck a Heart Sparkle Drop by the sentiment and added a Wiggle Eye to my whale. Speaking of embellishments - did you know they are buy one get one free this month?! During the month of February you get twice the amazingness!

I have been stamping for 14 years and am thrilled to be one of the first Fun Stampers Journey Coaches in Ohio. It was my honor to serve on the 2016-2017 Leadership Team for Fun Stamper's Journey.
