Keepin' it Reel
I have a really fun card to share with you today! I borrowed this stamp set "Keepin' It Real" from my friend Margaret. It is from the Your Next Stamp company which is a company I'm not very familiar with, but you know I'll be checking it out! This stamp in particular is probably not a stamp set I would have purchased to keep in my own collection, but it was fun enough to borrow to make a great masculine themed card. Here I combined it with Sunny Studios "Froggy Friends" and the Lawn Fawn Bayou Backdrop die. I have been enjoying creating "scenes" with my stamps and I find that you can pair so many different brands together and they work seamlessly.

The base of this A2 sized card is made from Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. Using the Lawn Fawn Bayou Backdrop die I cut the leafy background from Garden green cardstock. I brushed Squeezed Lemonade and Walnut Stain Distress Oxide inks over the white background to create a marshy/sunset background. Using the Lawn Fawn grass border cut, I cut a grass border out of Granny Apple Green cardstock. I cut the pond using the Bayou Backdrop additional pieces and some blue scrap paper. I stamped all images in Tuxedo Memento Black ink and colored them with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Ink markers. I die cut all the images and began placing them as a scene using 3M foam adhesive onto the card. Lastly I added a coat of Clear Wink of Stella to the images for added sparkle.
Here are the two stamp sets I used to create this card:
