Continuing on with the challenges.
This card followed a tutorial. After following the tutorial, I kept thinking of easier ways to create. The tutorial showed a punch for cutting the circle and I used a die, as I do not own circle punches large enough. The box was assembled before placing the inside piece behind the circle. I think the inside could be place easier before closing the card. I struggled getting my piece in and ended up adding another piece to place the circle on to get it centered inside. The end is cute, but it was a struggle and I owned one piece of each paper being used.
I used the dragonfly2stamp from The Stamps of Life for the inside stamping and the front greeting. The dragonfly itself was fussy cut from patterned paper as I didn’t have the die that matched. The patterned paper is from Echo Park. The cardstock is SU.
The hostess for this challenge has an autistic son who love to feed the ducks every day. It is part of his life to go the park, feed the ducks, geese, or any animal he calls a duck. I used the set Spring Has Sprung from Gina K Designs and Simple Celebrate from Lawn Fawn to stamp and create this card. The pattern paper is Echo Park and the cardstock is Balmy Blue by SU. I had fun coloring this card.
This card was created using flowers2layer from TSOL. I had the background stamped waiting to be used so I stamped the greeting strip and finished a flower and leaves to add to the front. It was quick to create.
The idea for this challenge to show a form of transportation used at the park. I chose a bicycle. The stamps and dies are all from The Stamps of Life, bicycle2stamp and the grass die. I grabbed green colors from my stash and cut grass. The bicycle was stamp and cut waiting to be used. I did add the basket.
Thanks for looking at this set. More to come.

All of these are great – my fav is the duck! Love how you used all the pp!
Thank you! This was the first time I stamped anything in that set, I think. I was able to purchase it used for little money and it has sat there waiting for Spring. Love the duck. Patterned paper is something I am trying to use more of as I own a lot. Thanks!
Thank you! Glad you stopped by.
More great cards for your challenges, Lisa. I’m loving your choices of patterned papers and designs. It’s too hard for me to chose a favorite card from this bunch. Well done.
Thank you! The first ones I posted were the hardest and ones I put off. These were fun, easy to create, and I did many of these first. It was fun to create and learn new things.
I’m having a great time seeing all the wonderful cards you created for this! Love that fun duck card and all the others. Sometimes, doing things someone else’s way really does help us figure out how to do it better and easier. Definitely do it your way, next time.
Thank you! I agree that sometimes following someone else’s directions give a starting point, then I see changes I want to make.
Lisa, these are all just wonderful!!! The cute little happy spring duck is my favorite. You are doing a fantastic job with Virtual Stamp Night.
I like the duck. He was so fun to color. Thanks!
Another grouping of great cards Lisa. I understand very well your thinking on the tutorial. I have found that following it is good but as I do so I come up with an easier way to get the same result. Love the duck and your colouring.
