Cards For Sale

Thursday, May 7, 2009


Happy Thursday Peeps. Let me start off by apologizing for my picture quality. I am using my daughters camera, because mine has died and I am not very familiar with hers.

My card today is made for the sketch, day three, on The Stamps and Smiles Blog..

The Ducky stamp is from the new set in the current mini, Wagon full of Fun and it is the whole reason I purchased that set. That ducky is just adorable!!!

I stamped him on watercolor paper with black stazon. Colored him in with my aqua painter and some baja, pumpkin pie and so saffron ink. I added some ground with some lite gray ink. I matted with basic black and baja. I layered his wing on a pop dot to add some dimension. I cut the baja scallop rectangle with my nesties and cuttlebug. I added a corduroy baja button that I tied some string through in one corner and the sentiment with oval punches in the opposite corner.

The DS paper is from the Sweet Slumber pack. The base of the card is baja as well. I pierced around the ducky image and put a light wash of baja ink over the sentiment.

The corner elements under the duck was made with the scallop square punch and the 1-1/4 inch punch. The entire center element is up on dimensionals.

I feel so luck to have started this blog and made so many great cyber friends from it! I am lucky to have a great group of stamping friends who took me into their group with open arms and treat me like family, even better! I am lucky to have a super husband who supports me and loves me no matter what, I am so blessed and lucky to have a great daughter and niece who make me feel special every day!

What makes you feel lucky?

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