I’m having so much fun with these darling little chickie stamps that are being released today from Cornish Heritage Farms. Asela has outdone herself with these sweet little images…chicks and sentiments and bunnies too! This image is one of my favorites. It looks like this little chick has a super big treat to carry along. My little guys are having a blast too with these images. They are coloring and cutting up a storm along side of me. It’s getting pretty messy here but creativity isn’t always nice and tidy is it?! I guess its just some good clean fun and they are happy to be spending some time with their mom. 🙂
This design was also designed with today’s SCS sketch challenge layout. The proportions aren’t quite exact but for the most part…it works. 🙂 If you’d like to play along, you can check out the sketch HERE.
Eggs and Chicks Easter Card
To create this design, I pulled the color combo from one of my favorite patterned papers from the Confetti collection by My Mind’s Eye. After stamping my image, I colored it with my Copic markers for a fun spring look. The image was then matted with some Crate Paper left on my desk and I sanded the edges to define them a little.
For the bottom panel of the layout, I stamped the tiny lined paper image (from the Kim Hughes’ Foursquare set) onto the reverse side of the My Mind’s paper. The Happy Easter sentiment was stamped onto a scrap of white cardstock and stapled to the design. I finally got around to playing with my new Robin’s Nest Dew Drops. I can tell I’ll be using them again soon. I received this bottle of them with my latest Paper Crafts magazines and goodies but I also have a couple others I’m going to have to pull out that I purchased from Ellen. So fun and easy to use!
Quick Tip: The reverse sides of double-sided patterned paper is perfect for matting and stamping on and coordinates perfectly.
Wishing you an eggstra-special day…. 😉 I know, that was sooo lame…. but seriously, have a good one.
