I am so excited to share this card with you today. It uses a bunch of products from the new Annual Catalog. I wanted to use the mallard in the Field Journal stamp set, but couldn’t figure out exactly how to lay out the card. I knew I wanted woodsy and a little masculine, so those thoughts were in my head as I paged through the catalog looking at the samples. As soon as I saw the card on page 33, I knew I was going to CASE it! (Copy and Share Everything)
I used the Stamparatus to stamp the mallard onto Watercolor Paper because I knew I’d need to reink and stamp 2 to 3 times to get a good impression since the paper is highly textured. I then squeezed my ink pads while closed, then opened and used the small pool of ink with the Water Painters to color the mallard.
There are 3 new In Colors on this card, too, and they are simply beautiful! The mallard piece is layered onto Cinnamon Cider, I die cut the cattails out of Just Jade, and the ribbon is Bumblebee. The final touch is cropping the ends of the sentiment banner with the new Lovely Labels Pick a Punch. Happiness!
Here’s my card:
