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 :)

Dragonfly Dreams meets Definitely Dahlia

Welcome to Terrific Tuesday! :)
I trust you all made it through Monday and are on the countdown to the weekend.

Today, I'd like to share my favorite card from our last class. I've been wanting to die cut those dragonflies from the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlit Dies in the Silver Glimmer Paper for a long time and I finally got to it! Aren't they beautiful against that Perfect Plum cardstock?!

The Definitely Dahlia flower stamp makes a bold statement inside the card and the So Saffron was the perfect color to make the card pop IMHO. 

I had trouble figuring out how I wanted to accent the card. I ended up popping some dots out of the glimmer paper with my 1/8" punch and adding some Clear Wink of Stella to the flower. I hope you can see the shimmer in the bottom picture. It's so pretty! :) 

That's it for now. We're having some BEAUTIFUL weather here in Illinois today. I think I'm gonna take advantage of it and find a pony or two to antagonize ride. 😄
We have to ride we can around these parts otherwise if you wait 5 minutes, the weather changes! 

Tomorrow, I will start sharing the cards we made at our Basket Swap on Saturday. Wait till you see the beautiful cards these talented ladies designed! 

Until then, Happy Stamping!
