Stampin' Up! Wetlands Meets Adventure Bound!

Hey there! How are you doing today? Things have calmed down around here after all excitement yesterday, and I had a little time to create! My hostess for tonight has requested a card using the Wetlands stamp set, so I put my thinking cap on.

I decided to use a bit of retiring Baked Brown Sugar cardstock for my card base, then layered on a piece of Adventure Bound Designer Paper from the stack in the Occasions Catalog. I cut a window with one of the soon-retiring Window Frames Framelits dies, then added a Baked Brown Sugar frame cut with the same die and the next-larger die from the same set.


I stamped a layer of Very Vanilla with the little shore birdies from the Wetlands set. My hostess had also admired a technique on a swap I had on my display board that used the swish stamp from the Work of Art stamp set, so I used that stamp to add the background colors behind the birdies. I stamped all of my images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink then colored the shore grass with my Blender Pen using Pear Pizzazz and Sahara Sand ink from the lid of the pad.


 Inside I used the cut-out from the Adventure Bound layer on the front, then stamped the sentiment from Yippee Skippee! (which is retiring) and cut it out with the next-to-smallest Window Frames Framelit.


A bit more stamping with the Work of Art "swish", the birdies and the grass finish off the inside. I kept the stamping of the grass and the birdies on the envelope simple by using just the Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
