Baby Duck….what an inspiration

January 17, 2011

Happy Monday everyone!

I got a call from my cousin this afternoon asking if I could make her a baby card.  Of course I would! and I knew exactly what I wanted to make!  I saw a tutorial from Marlene Peter’s Blog on how to make a super cute punch duck.  I was missing one punch but of course we’re creative, so I just substituted one of punches I didn’t have.  I wanted to participate in a couple of challenges and what do you know? I found a colour challenge from Create with Connie and Mary – CCMC 133 AND a sketch challenge from Stampin 411′ SSC 186.  So thanks to these great sources of inspiration……..I was able to make a pretty cute card..if i do say so myself…



HERE’S MY CARD! I’m actually really proud of it! and how cute it turned out!

Isn’t it adorable??? I love it! hehe Great colors for a baby card! and Perfect layout!

On marlene’s blog she used a large word window punch for the body, but I don’t have that punch, so I just used another circle punch.  I also make my duck smaller than hers because I needed a smaller duck lol. I also cased her ribbon on the bottom of the duck as water.  It adds great texture and dimensions to the card!

Ribbons!!  they’re so great!  I actually won this ribbon at one of my Demonstrator’s meeting! 🙂  and I finally have the chance to use it!  I don’t generally use a lot of yellowish tones with my card…  but I think this one turned out FANTASTIC! 🙂

Happy Stampin’ Everyone!

    Would you be willing to email me the dimensions you used for your duck baby card. It’s mostly just the duck size I’m curious about. I need to make a couple if baby cards and want to case this one. It’s absolutely adorable. Thanks!

      Hi Serbrina,

      I’ve given this card away a long time ago. But the card dimensions are 4.25 inch x 5.5inch. in regards to how big your duck is suppose to be, it’s up to the size of your punches. I put a link on where I got the duck tutorial from on the blog. so you’ll want to visit Marlene’s website.
