Getting Cricky with K Andrew Stamp Promo Week

Hello My Crafty Friends!  Today is my day to post over at Getting Cricky With K Andrew!  I am soooo honored to have been chosen to continue on as part of this fabulous design team.  As a way to introduce you to the new design team, we are having a promo week showcasing some of Kristal's incredible stamp sets.  Each of the design team members choose a stamp set to showcase!  I choose "Splashtastic Summer".  This is such a fun set!

 As most of you know, Kristal loves to give back, $1.00 from each stamp set sold goes to a well deserved charity.  All of Kristal's stamps are made here in the U.S.A., this way you are insured great quality as well as providing jobs.  As part of Promo Week and to make things a bit more fun, Kristal is having a SUPER STAMP SALE!  That's right crafters, you can get 20% off of this awesome stamp set and all you have to do is enter the code LETSHAVEFUN!

Now onto my project!  

For my project today, I decided to make a Get "Whale" card, as my get well stock is depleted.  I used Life's A Beach Cricut Cartridge.  Using the square card feature along with the whale image,I cut my card at 5 inches on some green scrap paper. All of my paper for this project is from my scrap box, still tying to use that up; so I apologize for not knowing what company the paper is from.  I cut the wale at 3 inches using my Cricut Expression on light blue card stock.  The layer for the whale was cut using the layer feature in a sort of grayish blue paper.  I could have cut the tail off so that it wouldn't hang off the card but I kinda liked it.  I then pleated some blue ribbon I picked up at Michael's along the bottom.  I cut a scallop circle from Lacey Labels and stamped my sentiment in SU Pacific Point Ink and inked around the edges with the same.  For a final touch, I added Glossy Accents to the water coming out of his blow hole.
