Wally the Walrus Birthday Card Using Sizzix Under the Sea 2

Morning all.  Today have a card to share that was inspired by a trip to Tenby last week.

Currently in Tenby a Walrus has set up residence in the bay which is quite a distance from somewhere in the Arctic where he should be living.  I think it is something like only the 10th record of Walrus ever recorded in the UK so when lockdown eased we headed to Tenby to try to catch a glimpse of Wally the walrus.  We did manage to see him, he spent all of the time in the water while we were there.

So this card features Wally the Walrus.

For my card I have used:
Walrus and Crab are from the Sizzix Under the Sea 2 Die Set - Colorize by Tim Holtz.
Hugs is cut from blue card using the Sizzix Alphanumeric Shadow Upper Thinlits Dies by Tim Holtz and covered with Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents.
Distress Oxide blended background.
Stamped sentiment is made up from a mix of three stamps.

Here's a couple of images of Wally in the waters at Tenby.

Crafty Calendar May Challenge Card using Bugaboo Stamps

Good morning.  Happy 1st of May to you.  I'm looking forward to a week off work and hopefully some okay weather to enjoy some days out subject to covid restrictions.  

As it is the first Saturday in the month we have a new challenge over Crafty Calendar and the theme for this month is

For my card I have used:

Charlie Birthday from Bugaboo Stamps coloured with copics.
The DP's are from the Echo Park My Dog paper pack.
The birthday sentiment I created on Cricut Design Space (I'm loving the new offset feature).   I cut the offset twice from white card and glued them together.  I then sliced the letters out of the offset to create a frame which I cut from white and glued on top.  I then cut the letters out of orange card and inset these into the frame layer and gave them a touch of wink of stella for a bit of sparkle..
