It’s A Ducky Life

Hi there crafty friends,

I’m so excited to be chosen as part of Sunsational Stamps new Design Team and today I’m sharing my first project with you using Lisa’s darling digital stamp “Spring Is Ducky” which can be found in her newly designed store.  Just click on this link to go there.

When I saw this cute little ducky upside down in the water I thought it would make a great encouragement card and just knew that I had to use him.  Below is a picture of the outside and inside of the card.

I always have trouble trying to figure out what papers to use for my card so with this card I decided to take a look online to see if I could find anything and I came across this cute blog, and found some really nice papers. The papers I decided to use are from the Day Dream Set.  She has lots of other cute sets so click on the link to go visit her and check them out for yourself.

I printed the image onto some white Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper and used my Copic markers to color it.   I have a mish-mash of markers but today I decided to use my Copics.  I punched it out with my Fiskars circular punch and set it aside.  I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out my digital paper and the scalloped image that mats the punched image.  I also typed my sentiments (outside and inside), printed them, and cut them out.  Then I layered them onto some black cardstock.  I found a graphic of a pond online and printed it.  Then I cut around it and made a small slit in the water.  I printed, colored and cut out another ducky from the set. I slid the ducky’s feet through the slit in the water so that it looked like it was swimming on the water.  I adhered the feet to the back with some tape to hold it in place.  Once I had all my pieces completed and set aside, it was time to start putting everything together.

I took an 8.5x11-inch piece of white cardstock and cut it down the middle of the 8.5-inch side leaving me with two 4.25x11-inch pieces of cardstock.  I scored the long edge of one of them along the 5.5-inch mark and folded it in half.  This left me with a card base that was 4.25x5.5-inches.  I adhered my 2 pieces of designer paper onto the card base so that they each covered half of the base.  Then I layered a couple of rectangular pieces across the middle to hide the seam.  I wrapped a piece of black ribbon around the rectangular pieces before adhering them to the cardstock.  I mounted my punched image on top of the scalloped circle and adhered that to the front of the card along with the sentiment.  The front of the card was complete and now it was time to move onto the inside.

I cut a couple more rectangles out of the designer cardstock and adhered them across the bottom portion of the card.  I adhered the pond on top and added my sentiment and the card was finished!

Thanks for taking the time to drop by.  I hope you enjoyed my project and I’ll see you soon with another Design Team share.  The supplies I used are listed below:
