Another installment…”Limited Supply” in the woods!

Happy Kitchen Sink Stamps Monday …

… with another installment of stamping with”Limited Supplies” from Minn. North Woods.

It is our final week up in the great woods of Northern Minnesota. The boys (big & little) are having a great time… we all are! Yes, I am still stamping! 🙂 This card was inspired by the baby ducklings that are so happy following their Mother out and about on the lake.

I helped the shedding process with one of the many Birch trees surrounding the lake, by adding a thin piece of Birch bark to my card. The little remanent of brown gingham was thrown in with my inks before leaving. So far so good… my card was coming together nicely. Then I hit a GIANT roadblock! I did not pack any adhesive!!! I was one step from googling how to mix my own glue – LOL when I remembered that my oldest son had brought along with him Quake Tack (I’ll save the reason why he packed it for another time). So, I’m thinking… “what the heck”, it was worth a try …. and IT WORKED!!!! YaHoo! Now to see how Quake Tack holds up after mailing! 😉

Please check out what the rest of the KS Crew has cooked up for you this Kitchen Sink Stamps Monday.

  1. You are good!! Love the cute duckling and the birch bark – very pretty card! 🙂


  2. OMG, you are too funny! Stamping in the woods! Well, for such limited supplies, you are doing a fantastic job!!!! I can’t wait to hear why your son had quake tack! LOL! Boys are so funny!


    1. You are so right Erin, boys (big and little) are too funny! My oldest son got a small digital camera from Santa this past Christmas and he has the “stop animation (using legos) bug” REALLY bad!!! He carries that camera with him everywhere! He will make a mini movie in the back of our mini van when we are driving around town doing arranges! (I wonder if I could have a chat with Steven Spielbergs’s mom?) LOL! ANYWAY, he uses the quake tack to adhere a lego figure to a wall or lego structure and then films the figure moving in tiny steps for each frame, so when the photos are all put together it looks like lego figure is climbing up a wall, etc. …. he just boggles my mind! 🙂


  3. Oh my goodnes, Maria! I LOVE this! The bark is such a wonderful embelli!! You are just too funny about the glue…so glad that it all worked out for you!


  4. What a fabulous use of the scrap of birch, Maria!! Super cute and pretty card!!


  5. I love this sweet duckling on the birch bark! What a precious card, Maria!! I hope every moment of your vacation is as magical as the pictures you are sharing!!


  6. Well I can’t wait to hear about the Quake Tack….too funny. I love the Birch behind the ducky….so stinkin’ cute! I don’t think a cuter card could be made. LOVE IT!
