Swap Card

Long time no post! I've been doing a lot of riding with this wonderful weather we're having here in Illinois and my blog has gone by the wayside. 

Today, I'd like to share a card that my dear friend, Linda Pohl, made for our Masculine card swap last month. Linda used the One Wild Ride stamp set. Isn't it great?! I love this set and all the great cards you can make with it.

Stray Ducklings Blog Waddle - Masculine Cards

Welcome to another edition of the Stray Ducklings Blog Waddle. Today's waddle focuses on masculine cards and we've got a great group of ladies ready to share their wonderful creations! 

I chose to use a combination of the Mixed Drinks stamp set and Playful Backgrounds. The moment I saw all those circles (bubbles in my mind), I just knew they were going on a drink card of some sort :) 

More fizzy bubbles for the inside. 

The fun part of this card (for me) was adding glue from the fine-tip glue pen to give the "beer" a liquid look. 

Pretty cool and easy to do. The hardest part is waiting for the glue to dry so you can put your card together :)

Embellishments: Burlap Ribbon , Fine-Tip Glue Pen

I hope you've enjoyed my card for today. Here's the complete list of Blog Waddle participants so you can waddle your way to the next fun creation:

Text Swap Card

Happy Thursday and welcome to the Stray Ducklings Blog Waddle! We are a group of Stampin' Up! Independent Demonstrators and we want to share cards made with NEW products with you! I am loving the variety of the stamps offered in this new catalog! 
For a complete list of our ducklings waddle, see below. 

My idea for the swap started with that beautiful Pacific Point 1/4" stitched edge ribbon. The moment I saw it, I knew I had to use it - immediately 😉 I felt the new Lemon Lime Twist would be the perfect color to make the whole card bright and cheery. I wanted a fun, happy feel to whatever I designed. 

Enter Text Ya Later. I just giggled to myself everytime I stamped one of those emojis! And how many times have any of us that text had our autocorrect change a word to something we didn't want to say only to not catch it and hit "send"?! Yep, it happens to me more often than not - proof positive that I need to slow down a bit. LOL!

The sentiment inside is from the stamp set Five For All - another whimsical touch. 

My first blog hops is now in the books! I hope you enjoyed seeing the card as much as I enjoyed making & sharing it.  

Next stop is the talented Ms. Bonnie
Waddle On my friends :)
