A nostalgic handmade card made with the Stampin' Up! Heartland Stamp Set designed by Shelly Godby of www.stampingsmiles.comTake a step back to simpler times as you look at the little boy in his blue jean overalls walking with geese. Do you think they all had a dip in the pond? An excellent way to cool off on a hot summer evening. You’ll find the little boy and his fowl friends in the Stampin’ Up! Heartland Stamp Set


This is not just any pond, but one with cattails along the bank. They are such a nice added touch to this nostalgic thinking of you card! The cattails are from the new Stampin’ Up! Friendly Silhouettes Dies

The watercolored background for my Stampin’ Up! Heartland card was the easiest I’ve ever done and, I believe, the best. The colors spread and blended beautifully. How did I suddenly get such good results? The secret is Shimmery White Cardstock


Watercolor Paper is designed for easy application and blending of colors but, the texture of Watercolor Paper isn’t always favorable to fine line stamps like the little boy. The smooth surface of the Shimmery White Cardstock provides a well-stamped image along with the ease of blending colors. The supplies for my Heartland card are listed further down.

One quick note about the cattails. The cattail flower tops were quickly made another color by coloring with a Soft Suede Dark Stampin’ Blends Marker. That sure beats die-cutting a second time and meticulously piecing each one!
