Just ducky

Good morning everyone! Hope you're having a good week so far.

 I have a very busy day ahead of me today, but wanted to share a card that I made for the latest Whimsy Stamps Inspirations Magazine. If you haven't viewed the magazine yet, you really should, as always it's free to look at and soooo amazing. Several amazing tutorials, of course lots of amazing samples by the Designers, and I believe there is even a freebie Shape EZ template to download.

Here is one of the cards I made for the magazine. I used the stamp "Everything's just ducky" from Whimsy's Crissy Armstrong collection.


I just love this cute stamp so much! It's been colored with Faber Castell Polychromos pencils, and I paper pieced the boots and umbrella.

The fence was made using Whimsy's picket fence die.
Of course, like on most of my cards I used a sentiment from Whimsy Stamps too. It's from the set "Celebrations circle pennants" , and I used the circle  pennants die to cut it out.

The clouds were made using a retired clouds template by stampin up. I have really only done a cloud background a couple of times, so  it is nowhere near perfect.

The grass was done by punching out some designer paper (basic grey) using the Martha Stewart grass punch. I added a few  prima flowers with brads and did some paper piercing along the edge to finish it off.

I have to say that I do love how this card turned out and I hope you do too!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a great day!
