This month, I am the guest stamper for the Luv 2 Stampin GA team.  So, I’ve been having fun with the Field Journal Stamp Set.  As a guest stamper, we select a stamp set and present a project each week to showcase ideas for using the set.  This is a great way to expand creativity.  I had so much fun using the duck stamp from Field Journal, that I created not one, but two different cards! 

Fun with Field Journal

Card Tips:
  • For the card on the left, stamp the duck onto a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock using Stazon Jet Black ink.  Color using watercolor pencils. Note, the watercolor pencils are used dry with no water. After stamping and coloring the image, cut using the large circle Stitched Shapes Dies.  The card base uses Early Espresso. A Crumb Cake cardstock layer is topped with a layer of Garden Green Designer Series Paper from the 6″x6″ Regals Designer Series Paper Assortment. Before attaching the layers to the card base, wrap a piece of Early Espresso Faux Suede Trim around the card and tie into a knot.  Then, add to the card base using Stampin’ Seal+.  Adhere the stamped duck to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The sentiment is stamped using Early Espresso Classic Ink and cut with paper snips.  
  • The card on the right is a fun fold card featuring the Corner Fold.  I followed directions and dimensions from a post by Cindee Wilkinson at Just Sponge It.  For the card base, use Pretty Peacock cardstock and layer with Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper.  In addition, use a coordinating square of the paper below the duck layer.  For the duck on this card, stamp the image onto Basic White cardstock using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and color with Stampin’ Blends.  The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Birthdays Stamp Set.  

If you’re needing a card with a masculine feel, either of these would be perfect to create.  The fun continues with the Field Journal Stamp Set.  So, be on the lookout for more samples using this set!
