Lucky Duck & A Box

Good Monday Morning Peeps! Hope you all had a great weekend!

Today's card is made with Jen's Sketch For You To Try.

I got to use my fun new set that is from the upcoming mini called "Wagons of Fun"!! I just LOVE this duck!!! It is just sooooooo adorable!!!

I started with a base of riding hood red and used some of the Washington Apple DS paper and also some bashful blue. The duck is stamped on watercolor paper and colored with my aquapainter and markers. I stamped him a couple of other times and just colored his wing and bow, cut them out and layered them up with some dimensionals.

The sentiment also comes from that same set and was stamped with black stazon and layered with bashful blue. I added a spiral brad and some bashful blue striped ribbon.

The flower is one of the dies and is cut with some so saffron and I added a build -a brad with a bashful blue center. I then finished it off with some white mini brads.

Now take a look at this fun little box:

Isn't it cute? It is made with the Movers and Shapers Die. The instructions can be found here.

I made the box at my friend and demo's house on Saturday evening. Everyone had left from the workshop and we had few minutes before I was getting picked up so we played a bit with this box.

I brought mine home and decorated it to match my card, well almost. This time I just left my cute little duckie white.

Here is a picture of the box slightly opened. It just slides like a match box.

And another view:

Well, that is all for today, Thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!


P.S. To Carol and Debbie and Lois, I was not ignoring you yesterday, I have LOST my cell phone.
