Cast away your troubles…

Hi everyone! I’m excited to share that I’m back on the Dare 2B Artzy blog as a guest designer for the month of October! I have an awesome inspiration project to share with you today, a get well card using the Restore the Soul stamp set and the Duck/Fish die set. I’m totally stoked to be back as a guestie this month!

I used a color palette to coincide with the October “Fall Colors” challenge – brown, red, orange, yellow, green and purple. I’ve been getting my feet more and more wet with clean and simple cards lately. Clean and simple has always been a challenge for me because I love colors, layers and big bows! I stamped the cattails and sentiment in Rich Cocoa ink on the card front, and then stamped the mama and baby duck twice on a smaller piece of cardstock. I used the coordinating die to cut the ducks from the first image and the mama duck’s wing from the second image. I colored both pieces and adhered the wing to the mama duck with a dimensional pad.

I adhered mama and her baby to the card front, then colored the water. I layered the panel on yellow cardstock and then adhered it to the card base. I added ripples in the water with White Blizzard Crystal Drops and some randomly placed dots at the top with Dark Walnut Crystal Drops.

For the inside, I simply stamped the sentiment and cat tails, and layered the panel on yellow cardstock.

  1. This is very sweet Leslie. I also struggle a bit with CAS cards and love my ink and a full page of it!!! This is a simple but very effective card with the brightness of those ducks. Thank you so much for sharing this with us at Penny Black and More Challenges, Leanne DT xxx
