Ducky - SugarPea Super Guest Designer #3

I've been thoroughly enjoying going through some of my older sets and some time ago I stamped a whole load of these little ducks out and coloured them in with my Copics while at a crafty weekend with some friends. Do you do that? A whole load of colouring then you leave them and wonder what to do with them? Well I used two on this card! I love that this set is called Quackers, so I made them a little crazy.

I also used some patterned paper from SugarPea Designs. I LOVE their patterned paper. I love that it is really nice and thick paper and that it's cut to fit a US A2 card, which is the size of card I generally make, so I don't have any waste. This is from the Whatever The Weather collection. 

I attached the piece of patterned paper to the front of my card and realised instantly that I shouldn't have done that without putting in the pink split pin first..... so after putting in the split pin, I then attached it to another card front. It's got extra support now!

I stamped my sentiment on a scrap piece of card and gently glued the ducks on either end. I poked a hole in the sentiment piece and attached a piece of baker's twine to it and then round the split pin. They hung around for quite a while like that as I coloured in and fussy cut out the lilypad and bullrushes. I glued them in the corner and then with some foam pads, I secured the ducks at a jaunty angle. Quackers, right?

Thank you so much for joining me again today. Happy Crafting :)

This is truly adorable Ruth! I think it’s a brilliant design, I love the banner at an angle with the two quackers at either end!! I really must make a card that has a swinging banner on it, great inspiration. And what can I say about the fussy cutting of the bullrushes, amazing. I’m gonna mail you my images to fussy cut in future 😃. Super lovely card, Lisa xx
