Inspired by Nature

At events like Onstage, they do a lot of giveaways.  This year we were each given a button in our bag with a letter on it.  My mom is one of those people who can figure out the end of a movie or book in the first 15 minutes so she figured out fast that the letters were spelling STAMP!  As the event headed towards the finish line, we realized our M button was the last giveaway.  We won a set called Swan Lake. 

Never to look a gift horse in the mouth, I was excited about winning a stamp set but wasn't sure what exactly I would do with it.  I don't really go for nature stamp sets.  However, I loved the sayings in the set and decided to start there. After all, thinking of someone is an important part of HUMAN nature. 

When I got home, I sat down to play with it and landed on this card which I adore. I think getting this one in the mail would make a person's heart happy and bring a smile to their face.  It's also a card that any level of stamper can do, which I forget to do sometimes!  The swan is stamped on the square of Serene Scenery DSP using Archival Black (dries before it smears!)  Then I stamped the swan on a scrap of Whisper White and cut it out. It's up on dimensionals to give the card extra depth.  Love how that shadow shows under it!


The inside of the card has my favorite part - the three little ducklings with the rest of the saying.  So cute.....


Then I wanted to see if I could use the stamp on the envelope to add a little extra special touch.  The address of the recipient would go in the middle there and I'd color the flowers with my markers or pencils.
