Open the card, add the colored cardstock 4 x 5-1/4″ and the white or vanilla 3-3/4″ x 5″ piece. NOTE: your design and greeting inside is vertical!!

Stampin Stray Ducklings – Bundle time!

Welcome to our November Blog Waddle! We are featuring July-December Mini-Catalog bundles on our projects this month!! You may have arrived here from Lori Helvick’s blog.  Following me is Nancy Legate’s blog.

I picked the Sweet Candy Canes Bundle (#161052) for my card. The card base is Basic White with two layers of the lovely background stripe dies from the Candy Canes Dies (#159569). One is flipped over so the dies criss-cross. and the candy canes were die cut from the Sweetest Christmas DSP, which is unavailable at the moment. The holly leaves and pink sprig from the Christmas Season stamp set (#156293) were stamped in Garden Green and Polished Pink and cut out with the Seasonal Label Dies (#156299). The sprig from the Sweet Candy Canes cling stamp set (#159560) was stamped in Pool Party. The sentiment is from Christmas To Remember (#156300) stamped in Real Red and die cut with the Tailor Made Tags Dies (#155563). I finished my card with Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels (#146924) and Real Red 3/8″ Mini Ruffled Ribbon (#156323).

Stampin Stray Ducklings – Fall is Here!

Welcome to our October Blog Waddle! We are featuring Autumn on our projects this month!! You may have arrived here from Lori Helvick’s blog.  Following me is Nancy Legate’s blog.

I picked the Leaf Fall 3D Embossing Folder along with the Leaf Label & Amber Gem Combo Pack to feature on this Autumn card. The card base is Very Vanilla with another layer of Very Vanilla which was embossed with the Leaf Fall 3D Embossing Folder (#159847). I also embossed the envelope flap, giving a hint of what is inside! The leaf is from the Label & Amber Gem Combo Pack (#159969). Under the leaf, I added two pieces of Designer Series Paper, one from the Rustic Harvest DSP, the other from He’s The Man DSP (#159068) and some Linen Thread (#104199). Tucked the sentiment from Go To Greetings (#158763), stamped in Soft Suede, under the leaf and added some gems. Quick and easy card!
