Stampin’ Up! Whale Done for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Are you ready for the weekend? Some of you may have already started your weekend. I’m actually off today and I’ll be making Easter egg bread all day. Except for last year, I always take Good Friday to spend making my bread since it’s an all day affair with all the risings and shaping and baking. If I’m lucky in between risings I’ll get to run to my craft area and play for a bit. Is anyone having Easter dinner at their house? I’ll be having Easter brunch with my family, my niece and her family and my nephew. Nice quiet early afternoon.

Before I forget, yesterday I was able to order the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalogs. Are you a customer of mine? If so, you will be getting one in the mail as soon as I get them. If you’d like to be a customer of mine and would like a copy of the catalog, send me an email at and I will get one in the mail to you. I was also able to order some new goodies from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. I can’t wait to share what I got and wait till you see the new 2021-2023 In-Colors. They are gorgeous!!!

Today’s card I made on my Facebook Live video on Wednesday. If you were able to join me or watched the replay, thank you. If you’d like to watch my video and stamp along, the measurements are below along with the links to my Facebook page and my YouTube channel. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Whale Done Photopolymer Stamp Set for my card today.

I started by scoring and folding a Night of Navy card base. On the 8 1/4″ side I scored at 1″, 2″, 3″, 5 1/4″, 6 1/4″ & 7 1/4″. I turned the card a 1/4 turn and placed the edge on the 1″ mark of my Paper Trimmer and cut from the 1″ score line to the 3″ score line, then from the 5 1/4″ score line to the 7 1/4′ score line. I moved the edge to the 2″ mark on my trimmer and made the same cuts. I put the opposite edge on the 1″ mark on my trimmer and made the same cuts, moved it to the 2″ mark and made the same cuts again. I folded the card as pictured in the template below.

Here is a view of how it looks from the top.

I adhered strips of the Whale of a Time Designer Series Paper to the 2 long side panels and the top and bottom of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut a panel of the Whale of a Time DSP using the largest square from the Stitched Shapes Dies and adhered it to the center using Stampin’ Seal.

I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock using the largest square from the Stitched Shapes Dies. I stamped the jellyfish image from the Whale Done stamp set in Versamark Ink on the top of the square. I immediately sprinkled it with my Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. Using my Blending Brush, I added some Pool Party Ink on the panel. The embossed jellyfish resisted the ink. I stamped the seaweed image from the Whale Done stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the coral image from the Whale Done stamp set in Calypso Coral Ink on the bottom center of the panel. I adhered the stitched square to the card base using a little Multipurpose Liquid Glue in the center and Glue Dots on the corners. On a separate panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the turtle image from the Whale Done stamp set 3 times in Soft Suede Ink. I colored the turtles in using my Granny Apple Green, Just Jade and Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers. I fussy cut all the turtles using my Paper Snips. I adhered the turtles to the stitched square using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Clear Epoxy Droplets from the Frosted & Clear Epoxy Droplets (I forgot to add these on my video)

On the back of the card base I adhered strips of Whale of a Time DSP to either side of the card base. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Whale Done stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink. I stamped the fish image twice from the Whale Done stamp set in Calypso Coral Ink, stamping off once, over the sentiment. I stamped the seahorse image from the Whale Done stamp set in Soft Suede Ink to the side of the sentiment. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pool Party mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the back of the Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the seaweed image from the Whale Done stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink on the front of the envelope. I stamped the coral and fish images from the Whale Done stamp set in Calypso Coral Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Whale of a Time DSP to the envelope flap.
