Hi. I'm Donna and the owner of a business called Luv2Emboss. I've been crafting since the moment I could color with a crayon without eating it first! I have been embossing with Lasting Impressions' Brass Templates for 17 year and I am on their Design Team. I also love to craft with rubber stamps and I hope the cards and projects I display will perk your interest to try a new craft or play with an old one! Enjoy. :-)

A WHALE OF A TIME UNDER THE SEA

Good morning and welcome to another Blog Challenge hosted by my very good friend Julie at the Stencil Specialist.  The focus of this challenge is a beautiful new stamp from Stampendous called "Stylized Whale" and was designed by Fran Seiford, the owner of Stampendous.  To enter this Blog Challenge you must be a resident of Australia and along with your comments, you must leave the town in which you live in.  All comments are welcome,however, and I would love to hear what you think about this beautiful new stamp.  Aussies have until the 28th to enter this hop and win the Stylized Whale stamp!  Good luck and here's my shaker card version, "Under the Sea."   Stamping joys, :-)  Donna

    1. Hi Dot. This is Donna and you "got it right" ... looking out a port hole. I was hoping for that idea! Thanks for your comments.

  2. LOL! I can't usually do a shaker card either so I'm rather impressed with yours Donna;) I love how the whale seems to swim into the ring.

    1. Thank you so much Robyn. You and Dot both got it right ... that's exactly what I was hoping. I love shaker cards and do them often. I hope I inspire others to give it a try! Thank you.

  4. ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS card!
    LOVE how you have coloured your whale, LOVE how you have placed the pretty shaker too - WOW - such a WONDERFUL design, reminding me that my nephew is crusing the high seas, and quite likely to be seeing sights just like this!
    Thank You for sharing and INSPIRING :)
