Whale of a Time Samples for My Annual Catalogue Launch




My Annual Catalogue Launch is coming up on Saturday, and so I'm working hard to create a lot of samples from the suites I have purchased to give the people attending on Zoom an idea of what they can do with the different products.

Some of the products I worked with on the weekend came from the Whale of a Time Suite! I had a blast working with all these supplies and I wanted to show you what you can do with a stamp set, punch, embossing folder, Designer Paper, ribbon and sequins!

Take a look at these:


  • These first two are simple stamping cards that would be great to use for an online Make & Take project. One of them will likely be one of the Make & Takes for the Catalogue Launch itself. They require very little in the way of stamping, just a punch and adhesive and you're ready to go!
  • The Whale of a Time 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper is spectacular, colourful and fun, and it's easy to build an underwater scene with it.  The Whale Builder Punch coordinates with some of the paper as well so you don't even have to stamp the whales, you can just punch it out from the DSP!
  • You can easily stamp images like the sea horses and the fish right on the DSP as well, because it's the right scale for it. Then you can stamp some images on cardstock and fussy cut them and add them with dimensionals to give your card front some 3D appeal.



  • In these two samples you can see the difference between a whale punched and assembled from cardstock and one punched right from the DSP.
  • On the first sample, if you look closely, you can see about three whales punched from vellum, adorning the background. Don't you love the colour palette of the DSP, with the Pretty Peacock, Just Jade, Pool Party, Calypso Coral and Petal Pinks?
  • That Pool Party Sheer Ribbon is so beautiful and the coordinating Whale of a Time Sequins, with their round shapes like bubbles and their alternate sea shell shapes are so decorative.

  • Here you can get a better look at the ribbon and sequins and some of the other images that you can stamp, but what I want you to especially notice is the awesomeness of the Seabed 3D Embossing Folder. Right now, it's my favourite embossing folder of all!! There is just so much interesting texture, and it's just like a sea floor! 
  • In the sample on the right, I added some Whisper White Craft Ink to the raised area of the embossing folder before adding the Just Jade cardstock and running it through the embossing machine. It enhanced the texture so nicely. Just make sure to wash out your embossing folder right away after you are finished to be sure you get all the craft in out before it has a chance to completely set. Mine came out sparkling after some soap and water.
Other than the first two of the six cards I showed you, I used the catalogue to CASE the designs (Copy And Selectively Edit). It helps me when I want to make a lot of samples in a short time and it can be a help to you, too, when you want ideas for your own cards. If you don't have your own yet, let me know and I'll see that you get one.

I'm going to suggest the Whale of a Time Suite to you if you want to make some fun cards and you don't have a lot of equipment. It's on page 94 in the Annual Catalogue. To get the whole suite is $88.50 plus tax and shipping, but if you want to save some money, check out my suite shares, where you can share the paper, ribbon, and embellishments and still get everything, but for less money and you can earn a free gift if you add on the stamp set and tool. My prices include tax, but may have extra shipping involved depending where you live.
