Just For You Nature Walk

I made this card a couple of days ago using a sketch from one of the daily challenges on the Splitcoast Stampers site. I used one of my favourite stamp sets and some retired DSP - Springtime Vintage.

The DSP is matted onto some Kraft card stock which has had the edges sponged with Chocolate Chip ink. The flowers were stamped and then coloured with some Stampin' Write markers and the bird was stamped and cut out before being attached with 3D foam pads. He was coloured using pencil crayons.
The green ribbon was some I unearthed from the depths of my ribbon bag - I think it's from an Anna Griffin set I bought some years ago. Now luckily when I extracted my ribbon from the bag it wasn't too crumpled but I have been told that crumpled ribbon can be made smooth and flat again by running it through hair straighteners!! (Don't have then too hot though as it will probably melt!).
The little label is a Nestability shape with a sentiment from the set Just Believe. Thanks for looking - see you soon - Jacqueline xx


  1. So sweet Jacqueline and such lovely soft colours. I have this set but haven't really used it much even though it's a favourite of mine. I love that crafters blogs give you so much inspiration to make full use of your craft stamps and stash, thank you !

  2. This is beautiful Jacqueline. I love this set (as you probably know by now!!!) and that bird particularly. The tab at the side is a lovely touch. Vx

  3. Gorgeous jacqueline the colour combo... I may steel it!

  4. Jacqueline you always seem to make the most beautiful cards out of what seems to me as a quite boring looking set.

    Your cards are awe inspiring (sorry if this sounds too gushing!) so thanks for sharing.
