Just Ducky



Today is a Belli Challenge day, and this week's challenge is to use an old stamp. One that you've had for a long time, but maybe never used. Don't even tell me you don't have one, because I know you do! Bring it out! Ink it up! I bought this ducky stamp AGES ago. It's made by Embossing Arts, Co., titled "Just Ducky", and dated 1999 (See!?). This is the first time I've used it for a card. All of the DP you see was a gift from my friend Courtney. Thanks, Courtney! The solids are Certainly Celery, Blush Blossom, and Regal Rose. I used yellow brads in the center of the flowers, and added a little stardust stickles to make them sparkle. I just love the way this turned out, and am so excited that I finally got a dang bow to tie almost perfectly. I'm tellin' ya, it was a banner night in the old stamp room! lol!

Be sure to click over to the other Belli Girl blogs (linked in my sidebar) to see what stamps everyone else dusted off today! ;o) hee hee.

I have a few more things I want to share with you as well. One is a new blog that popped up on my reader this morning. One of my friends and fellow design team members has gotten together with a few other girls and created a new blog called The Daily Dare. If I'm understanding this correctly, they are going to be compiling all of the various stamping challenges out there so you can find everything in one place. What a cool idea! Be sure to bookmark the site and check back often!

I also got a little email from my friend Mandy over at Limelight Papercrafts telling me about a sale they are currently having... 15% off! The coupon code for that is BALLDROP. Click over and see if you need anything!

Also, be sure to check out my side bar for info on the Sweet n' Sassy Stamps blog hop. EVERY blog will have CANDY! Woot! There are some adorable new sets coming out, so don't miss your chance to win it before you can buy it!

Cute image Sarah! I can't believe you've had it so long and not used it even once. I like the brads you used in the flowers. Thanks for letting us know about the Daily Dare blog. That is a cool idea that will make doing challenges much easier!

Well this is too dang cute! I love your choice of colors! I just made a card with an old, old stamp, so maybe I will post it on the Belli blog too! Thanks for all the info about the Dare blog--what a great idea, I feel like half my day is spent looking around for challenges! Can't do them all, but you can't blame a girl for trying!
