Welcome Baby with Whale Of A Time

Stampin' Up! Whale of a Time and Well Written Dies fun fold baby card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The Whale of A Time Suite was the perfect choice for this fun fold baby card and I can’t wait to show you why!  I love the ocean life images and all-occasion designs in the Whale of a Time Designer Series Paper. You can use the 6 x 6 sheets to create a scenic background for your card or cut out larger images to use as accents (which I did for the whales). Check out the different designs.

I love anything from the ocean (and beach)! I was thrilled I could add some 3D aquatic life using the Smooth Sailing Dies. Stampin’ Up! is great with product coordination!

Word Dies are my favorite and the Well Written Dies work for so many occasions!

I used the new foam adhesive sheets with the word dies. These Double-sided adhesive foam sheets can be cut with dies which makes it so easy to cut and adhere!!

I made this card is for my friend Susan who just welcomed her first grandbaby!  The baby’s nursery is nautical with lots of whales and ocean animals. Whenever Susan and I were out shopping she was always picking up something to go with the nursery theme for the baby…clothes, books, stuffed animals, etc. I know it won’t be long before baby Wes is out on the boat with his Gigi and Pap! Look at these adorable pictures and you will see why I chose the Whale of a Time! I love to coordinate cards and gifts with a theme!


I am thrilled for my friend Susan (and also a little jealous)! I love babies and can’t wait to be a grandparent! I shared what I though was a great “5 year plan” for my son back in 2015. I hoped he would find a nice girl, get married, and have a baby when I retired. LOL I followed my part of the plan and retired last year!

I found the perfect sentiments for my card from the Many Mates and Timeless Tulips Stamp Sets. There’s still plenty of room to add a personal note!

I love to decorate my envelopes to coordinate.  I used the Seabed Embossing Folder to emboss the envelope flap then sponged it with colors from the DSP.  I really loved how it turned out!

This card is really easy to make and folds flat to fit in the envelope. When you open it up it pops out and can stand on your shelf. It’s a really cool fun fold.  Click HERE to view more fun fold cards featuring this pop up design as well as my photo tutorial with measurements and directions to make it!

  1. Perfect card for the new grandparents with its whale & ocean theme. Great choice to use that fun fold too! (Hope your time comes soon…there’s nothing like being a grandparent!)

  2. Fabulous card and super news about the Itell’s newest addition. (Your time will come!) Thanks for sharing your creativity and the good news with us all.

  3. OH MY GOSH….this is FANTASTIC and I am watching him right now (and yes…when I say watching him….I just sit here and watch him sleep!!!!) He is just so cute but this card is OVER THE TOP CUTE and he actually has a whale little thingie that he sits in……soooooo fun and cute!!!

  4. Such a fun card. They will cherish it, if they can wrestle it away from Susan. So perfect.

  5. This is a beautiful keepsake for Wesley’s Family. I love how you added his birthday, height and weight to it. And the sentiments are just as you said – perfect.

  6. Jeanie, this is amazing! You are such a clever and talented person and so sweet to share your talents! I love your work! You are an inspiration! Thank you so much!
