Just Ducky!

I *LOVE* ducks.

I love every duck stamp---so I HAD to have this adorable one called Lovin' & Huggin' by Penny Black. I got it from Stamper's Dream!
The background was created with the Labels I Nestabilities. I die cut one and then cut it down the middle, embossed it and then flipped them so that the flat middle edges were along the edges of the card. (It created the cute border at the top of the card.

The cardstock on this card is by Prism--I used the Orange pack, the accent Orange pack and the Island Mist pack. If you have never used Prism paper--you definitely should try it. It is beautiful and has a lovely subtle texture to it.

I used some Olive ric rac ribbon to line the bottom of the card. Almost everything on this card is from Stamper's Dream. Check it out for a great selection of stamps, ribbon, Spellbinders dies, JustRite products, embellishments, Prism Paper, primas, Cuttlebug folders, etc.

Materials used: Stamps-Lovin' & Huggin' (Penny Black), Expressions clear stamp set (Inkadinkado); Memento tuxedo black ink; Copic markers; Spellbinders circles, scalloped circles, Label I Dies; Cuttlebug; swirl embossing folder (Provocraft); ric rac (May Arts); buttons (SU!); paper piercing tool and mat pack (SU!); oval punches (SU!); corner rounder punch (Creative Memories); hemp; dimensionals.


Thanks for stopping by!

What an adorable card. Your colors are great - not ones I typically use, but definitely will (I have a hard time getting away from happy (bright) colors, but I'm learning to go outside of the box! Love the rickrack - will have to send this link to my sister, who JUST figured out you can use "that zigzag stuff mom used to use when she sewed" on your cards!!!
