Marbleized waves for Baby

I don't know what it is about the whale stamps and patterned paper I have in my collection, but they make me wanna do baby cards with 'em. (check out more here, here, and here- oh and this one from 2011 here)

This sweet l'il guy is from Papertrey Ink's Whale Wishes.

Isn't he cute??  Those little splashes were stamped in blue, then topped with a tiny bit of Glossy Accents glue. 

The frame was on my desk from another project:  you know when you die-cut a shape out of a piece of cardstock and you're left with the negative? That's what happened here. I love creating little scenes in frames. 

The marbleized paper scraps are from a Stampin' Up! goodie bag and I cut it with Simply Scallops Large die from My Favorite Things. I used both the positive and negative diecuts from it as waves.

Though you really can't quite see it, I glittered the starfish (Blockheads Paper Arts) with fine Crystal glitter. The sentiment is from Verve's Small Phrases.

After playing around with the whale stamp and die from Papertrey Ink, practicing lining things up, I had one whale left over for another card.

This one is quite simple, but uses more marbleized patterned paper as the baby card above. A sun was cut simply with a circle die, and then for some extra interest, I added another strip of scalloped patterned paper at the bottom.

Thanks for joining me today!  Be blessed!

These both make darling baby cards! I love the rhinestone eyes and the splashes, and, oh, the clouds on the first card. Steal my heart!

Love the first one and am so impressed with your thriftiness to make the second, which is very cute, too!
