Summer is around the corner. I’ve been dreaming of ‘fishies’, the chance to visit the beach and paddle in the shallows. I think it’s still too cold for me to swim in the Bay!
Friends and family are feeling the same. How about you? Are you dreaming of visiting the beach, playing in the sand and the shallows.
In these projects, I have paired our Whale of a Time Suite including Designer Series Paper, Whale of a Time Sequins, all from our Annual Catalogue with Home Together Dies and the new Quite Curvy Variety Bundle.
The Designer Series Paper is 6″ x 6″, 48 sheets: 4 each of 12 separate double sided designs with heaps of colour options. Here are the colours; Balmy Blue, Blackberry Bliss, Bumblebee, Calypso Coral, Granny Apple Green, Just Jade, Pacific Point, Pool Party, Pretty Peacock, Shaded Spruce & Whisper White.
Beach Boxes Card – Quite Curvy Variety Bundle (Special Release), Home Together Dies and Whale of a Time Suite.
I have used the stars and swoosh from Curvy Christmas, the detailed curvy element from Curvy Dies, the greeting is from Quite Curvy, the DSP and sequins are part of the Whale of a Time Suite. For the tree backdrop I used Trimming the Town DSP die cut with Home Together Dies. The beach houses are die cut using Home Together Dies and Rainbow Glimmer Paper. I finished the card with Red Braided Linen Trim.
As you can see the card design and products could be used for many situations. Here are some Examples: ‘Thinking of You’ and ‘Happy Birthday’.
This inside of this birthday card also incorporates a Gift Envelope and stamped Whale of a Time images. I have used the Rock & Roll technique to replicate various colours on the sea grasses, coral and turtle.
In the product list below, I have listed both the Quite Curvy Variety bundle and the individual items. As an Early Release offering, the Quite Curvy Variety Bundle is offered a discount of 10% for the entire bundle, so there is an additional saving for you if purchase the Variety Bundle as one item. While the Quite Curvy stamp set and Curvy Dies will feature the upcoming catalogue, the Christmas Curvy stamp set is only available until January 4 while stocks last. P.S the paper’s pretty and included in the special discount rate!

Here are a few other creations using the element from the Whale of Time Suite: DSP, Seabed 3D Embossing Folder, Whale Punch, Whale of a Time Sequins, Sheer Ribbon. I have also brought in Smooth Sailing Dies. You might notice the non-rectangular pieces of DSP featuring swimming turtles. They are cut from one piece of DSP. It’s another way of using your DSP and the turtles were happy swimming in all directions. In the DSP packs there are designs featuring different sized turtles and these designs were perfect for the ‘spotlight technique’. The additional greetings are from Forever Fern and Tasteful Touches. All of these additional products are listed and linked below.
Whale and Ocean Layers
The DSP is totally stunning. It is so easy to mix and match and create a stunning card. I have torn 1″ strips and layered them on a Pacific Point layer. The whale can be punched using the accompanying punch or fussy cut. I used the pretty Sheer Ribbon for a bit more Wow!
Curvy Ocean Gift Box
The Gift Box uses two of the Quite Curvy Variety Bundle dies; one on the box and one on the DSP layer. This box was a snap to put together, decorate with Whale of a Time DSP and finish off with a little Sheer Ribbon from the Whale of a Time Suite. Blackberry Bliss cardstock paired beautifully with the seagrasses in the DSP.
