I Found My Craft Room!

It was right where I left it! I have just been too busy to get there these last few weeks. I sat down and was totally stumped. It was like I forgot how to stamp. Really weird feeling. Well anytime that happens I know just where to get some help. A few favourite blog challenges is the place to get some inspiration flowing. Today I chose Stampin' 411 sketch #184 (I haven't been there in awhile and miss it!) and Colour Q challenge #66.

I pulled out a few new things from the Occasions Mini. I started with the Framed Tulips Embossing Folder. I actually layered as you can see from the closeups. I figured you can layer ribbon and flowers and buttons and paper, so why not? At the top both layers are the same folder but at the bottom I wanted the plain frame around the polka dots. I think I like it!

Love the Seam Binding Ribbon and love it even more now that it is available in Baja Breeze! And how fun is that Pompom Trim?! I added a few Vintage Trinkets and Linen Thread to finish things off.

The duck is made using only SU punches. I just remembered however that one is not current. Here is the link to the duck tutorial!
Thanks for stopping by and have fun stamping!

I would definitely like to know how you made the duck! There is a coworker having a baby tomorrow and she is decorating her baby's room in ducks. I am working on the card right now...I'm hoping for a fast reply.
