Technique Tuesday New Release Countdown: Day 2

Hi, gang!

I’m back with the Technique Tuesday Design Team today in counting down to the September release of new goods.

I’ve got two cards to share with you today. Both of these cards feature the new Wendell the Whale stamp set, which will be available here with all the new goods on September 1st.

For this first card, I paired Wendell with a fish from the Olive the Octopus stamp set. It’s always fun when you can mix and match stamps together.

The little water droplets on the card? I created those with Glossy Accents. The hardest part? Being patient while waiting for them to dry. 😉

By the way, I wanted Wendell to be extra goofy on this card so I added a wiggle eye. I also wanted him to really pop so I cut a second whale mat from craft foam and adhered it under him. That’s why he looks like he’s more raised than the little fish.

For this second card, I created a little scene by pairing Wendell with the Waves on the Border die. I just love this die. It works well with all the underwater critters in the Animal House collection of animal stamps.

To the make the waves stand out against the patterned paper background, I did mount them to vellum and use my scissors to fussy cut away the excess vellum. I think it just add the right “something something” to the card.

Alright! That’s it for now. I’ll be back later.
