It was definitely a case of Whale Meet Again for last week’s Card & Cuppa project.
The attendees have been asking for a project that uses the Whale Builder Punch so here it is. As I used it for the Children’s class the other week, it’s getting a fair amount of use!
Purple Posy, Coastal Cabana, Night of Navy and Whisper White create this project. My colour combination is taken from the Playing with Patterns Ribbon Combo Pack, and I’ll explain a bit more on why this is in a bit.
At a previous session, the attendees liked the Purple Posy Ribbon from the Playing with Patterns Ribbon Combo Pack. I was also able to show them the other two ribbons in the pack, so thought I would use them and the colours on this project.
The Coastal Cabana piece is embossed using the Old World Paper Embossing Folder, a new item in the Annual Catalogue. I thought it looked like the sea in this colour with the ripple shape cut by hand.
Using the Painted Labels Dies and cutting out the centre piece, the swirl is threaded with the ribbons. I’ve also added the Crinkle Seam Binding Ribbon in Whisper White here too.
For the whale, they are made two-tone by using a belly piece in Purple Posy. I gave the attendees whales in both colours, so they could choose to make either Night of Navy or Purple Posy. Or even both.
This sits across the centre of the swirl and the water spout is then added.
Finally, an eye and three bubbles from the Elegant Faceted Gems Pack add a little bit of sparkle and fun.
