Easy Events stamp set was one of the FREE ones that I received for attending Convention last year. I had not mounted it yet…I know! After I started playing with it, I do find that I REALLY like it. It is a great set for beginners, too. I always like stamp sets that have words and images in the same set together. On this one, I customized the way I mounted them on wood. Some images that I thought I would only use together, I kept together. Other ones, I cut off the greeting to use separately. Isn't it nice that Stampin' Up! gives us the option of mounting them the way WE want?
I liked the Create with Connie and Mary sketch last week so much that I made another card using the sketch. I had cut out this little ducky image using a technique called "Outside the Box" that I showed last night at my Technique Class. This was the option of using punches to do the technique. They did a card using the Label Framelit. Both ways are basically the same except for the cutting mechanism. See how the little umbrella is outside the circle? I think it was Nance Leedy that showed how to do this technique with punches!
The base of the card is Whisper White. I added Lucky Limeade Patterns Paper, layered on Basic Black cardstock. I wrapped the 1 1/4" Striped RIbbon (available in my RIBBON SHARES HERE!) and secured it to the back. I gathered one end and tied a bow with Lucky Limeade Baker's Twine.
I stamped the Ducky with Black Stazon, then I used Stampin' Write Markers in So Saffron, Daffodil Delight and More Mustard to color the duck, and Lucky Limeade and Always Artichoke for the umbrella, Pumpkin Pie for the beak. I added highlights with a White Gel Pen. The Ducky is punched with the 1 3/4" Circle Punch and layered on 2" Basic Black circle. I added both of them to the Pennant Medallion of Always Artichoke. It is popped up on the front with Stampin' Dimensionals! I added the trio of large Rhinestone jewels along the top of the circle as the sketch showed.
I wish I knew someone having a baby that I could send this to right now! lol!
