"anchor" and chain??

Thought:I love these whales from the new stamp set and sizzlits die "Oh, Whale!" found in our spring occasions catalog, but I don't want my whaley to be lonely...
So, may I introduce you to Mr. and Mrs. Moby?!
This card is on a card base of whisper white,with a layers of basic gray and another layer of whisper white topping it off.
The top bough is made from our large scallops edgelits die.
The color is calypso coral. Run your die through the big shot like this:
so sweet!
The heart and Mr. Moby and anchor are cut from basic gray card stock and the Hearts a Flutter Framelit Die and our Happy Whale Clearlits die. A second whale is cut in calypso coral, the soon to be Mrs. Moby.
I used the Sale-a-bration stamp set "Pretty Petites' and coordinating punch 'Petite Curly Label',which I earned FREE!!! Well, sort of...don't tell my Mr. Moby that I spent $ to get them free ;)...
I made the Mrs' crown and the 'Mr and Mrs'from our Tiny Tags stamp set.
I stamped the waves 3 times consecutively in basic gray ink.
I attached a piece of tulle I had in the stash to the Mrs as a veil...my blushing bride! Use stamping dimensionals to give her the pop she deserves!
 *Note, I used a black flower behind Mr.s eye and punch a whole for his eye. And a basic pearl for Mrs' eye. I used my basic black and calypso coral marker to create their smiles and eyelashes.
 I though the Mr. needed to be a bit more dashing so I stamped Mr. with the new Beyond plaid stamp set.
And because men always feel they are being tied down when they get married, I added an anchor to Mr. with a piece of coral bakers twine.
Hope you enjoy these cuties!!
Until Next Thought,

I must get back to Stampin'!!!
When I saw this cool stamp set from our Saleabration catalog,  I just had to have it(of course)!
 The stamp set is called 'Feeling Sentimental" and of course since I am a 'Jersey girl',this ferris wheel reminded me of the recent devastation that our shore towns were dealt with Superstorm Sandy.
So, I the wheel started turning...
My first thought was derived from an actual used card from the casinos in Atlantic City(don't worry i didn't lift it ;) I have several decks of used cards from there. 

 I thought about making the background look like the boardwalk,but then decided I wanted to make it a little brighter than wood planks.  So, I used our Woodgrain Embossing Folder on Naturals White Card stock.  I sponged this with some Island Indigo ink.
I stamped the ferris wheel image in Not Quite Navy to give it a softer color than the indigo.  I added a banner made with the following:

  • Ticket Punch and 'That's the Ticket' stamp set(available in our new spring catalog)and "Admit One"tangerine tango ink
  • An island Indigo tag made with the 'Hearts a flutter' framelits die and the new stamp set "Ciao,Baby!'(also available in the spring catalog)the "1" stamped in garden green ink
  • Another tag made with the 'hearts a flutter framelits and the stamp set"Occasionals Alphabet' "O is for One" stamped in real red
  • A strip of island indigo stitched satin ribbon
  • A knotted strip of real red stitched grosgrain ribbon
  • and lastly the banner was hung on Island Indigo Baker's twine
 I added the layer of daffodil delight card stock embossed with our Argyle Embossing Folder and lastly, made 2 1" square dice in real red card stock.(punch a hole in the top square and add a white square behind)Another "1!" 

Now, I think I should take a quick little trip up the parkway, go to Atlantic City, bet on 1, and see if I won???

Until Next Thought,
