We had a WHALE of a Time!


As I promised yesterday, here is the project I have been working on all week. For some reason, it just wasn’t coming together as I wanted it to…… then on Thursday, I got it (just in time for the Just Add Ink challenge on Friday – Just Add Dimension!)

I was particularly anxious that this card work, as I was asked to teach it at our team’s demonstrator training this morning. When Jacque asked me a few weeks ago to show something using the Sweet Treat Cups, I was blown away (I’ve only been stamping for 6 months! In fact, today is my 6-month anniversary with Stampin’ Up! :-)) – but I wanted to prove to myself that I was up to it!

And here it is lying down:

This card used the Sweet Treats Cup, the 1 3/4″ circle punch, the Circle Scissors Plus, Tall Tales DSP and corresponding Animal Stories stamp set, and the Brilliant Blue, So Saffron and Whisper White cardstock. Oh yes – and water!

If you’d like a copy of the typed instruction sheet I did for this class, please email me (see ‘Contact Me’ above for details), and I’ll send it to you.

    Hey Bron – this turned out beautifully!! I was having a hard time imagining the card when you described it to me. Man, I wish I could have been there to make one too. By the way, your sponging is right on the money!! Well done!

    When I first saw this I thought you surely hadn’t used a liquid on a card (brave step). But the sweet treats cup is obviously up to it. It looks fantastic.

    This is just adorable Bron…. love what you have done with the treat cup, really original.

    Oh my gosh, what a great idea. But how does it hold water?
    Yes, I would love instructions. Thanks

    Gorgeous! How do you stop the card from getting soggy at the back? Or do you use white gloss card, so it’s more ‘water proof’? TFS 🙂
