Wetlands thank you card with the Canadian Goose by Stampin Up and me


Hi dear Stampers.

I hope your day is going by pretty awesome. We have sun and that means we are spending a whole lot of time outside!

 Have you noticed this beautiful new stamp set in the new catalogue? Well as a Canadian it was hard to pass this beauty by.

It shows the Canadian Goose so beautifully in this set and it has a bit of an ocean going with those tiny little sea birds.. Oh I love it!



You can find it on page 69 of your Stampin Up Catalogue 2013 - 2014. It is called 'Wetlands' (#126695 - $26,95 + shipping and tax for the wood mounted stamp set and $20.95 for the clear mount stamp set #126697)


I created my card with the Paper Smooches Sketch in mind. Please hope over to their beautiful blog to see what the design team has created for all of us to see. You will for sure be inspired.



I also inked up my new cute goosie with my new Smoky Slate ink colour. (#131179 - $7.25)

Classic Stampin’ Pads come in exclusive Stampin’ Up! colors, grouped in collections to make choosing coordinating colors simple. Exclusively designed stamp pad lids fold under to make inking large images like background stamps easy.

* Dye-based ink
* Acid free
* Coordinate with exclusive Stampin’ Up! card stock and Stampin’ Write Markers
* Firm foam pad for great ink coverage
* 1/2 oz. ink refills available


The other day we went to a friends organic farm. They have chickens, cows, horses (they don't even own a tractor, they plow the land with the help of their horses.. we picked herbs in the forest and in the grassy fields and made the most yummy tea of it.. Our kids loved hanging out there and help a little. We all were so blessed to hang out there and learn and love on all the animals.



Cuddling a little chick never gets old.



So much fun to gather all the eggs.




I used my Oval Collection Frame Lits Dies from Stampin Up,

 to make that perfect oval cut you see on my card. (#129381 - $32.95)

Easily cut stamped images from the Oh, Hello Stamp Set. Largest scallop oval: 4-1/4" x 5-1/8". 6 dies. Cuts single sheets of paper with your Big Shot, Standard Cutting Pads, and Multipurpose Platform.


This lovely sketched set imbues the peacefulness of the great outdoors. Includes three sentiments for several different occasions.



Well, I am off outside again.. I think our plants need some loving in all this heat.

Inky hugs, Pauline
