Whale of a Time with curvy waves

With creative curves and wonderful waves, the Quite Curvy Stamp Set and coordinating Curvy Dies add texture and dimension to any paper project! And combined with my Whale of a Time DSP, I made these two great “underwater” cards!

On my first card I used the curvy “bubbles” die. NOTE: be sure to look carefully at the back of the dies. Some of the die edges have a ridge – that ridge cuts the paper! First pass through my BigShot, I laid it out wrong and my “bubbles” were cut off my piece of DSP (I should have taken a boo-boo picture, but forgot)! 

So I flipped the die with the ridge on the bottom and recut it. I heat embossed the “Hello” greeting, then added the Misty Moonlight ribbon tied in a know. I added some Pearl basic jewels to the background (hard to see, but they are there). As I was looking at my finished card, I thought the string of the Pearl basic jewels would look great (they cover the die-cut holes – LOL, could have saved my boo-boo cut!).

As I looked at the card again, it didn’t look quite right, so I took off the ribbon:

Hmm…now it looked a little bare, so back with the ribbon, but moved it higher to the edge of the DSP and moved the knot over a little to balance the greeting. Which version do you like the best, #1, #2 or #3?

My 2nd card was created with much less drama. It came out like I expected on the first try – always glad when that happens. I used the die that looks like fountain sprays, with the seahorses and underwater DSP from Whale of a Time DSP. I stamped my greeting on Whisper White, matching the die curve. I cut the bottom of the banner with the bubble die, and fussy cut the top edge to match the curves. I added two die-cut “underwater” plant stems in Pretty Peacock and Shaded Spruce for under my banner. With a few Pearl basic jewels for my bling, I was finished.

Here’s what I used to make these cards.

Thanks for stopping by today! Happy stamping creative cards this weekend. I’m attending Stampin’ Up! On-Stage events today and tomorrow, virtually. Can’t wait to see the new spring catalog and all it has to offer!
