Spring Chicks

Hi everyone,

I have some fun spring inspiration up over on the Papermilldirect blog showing you how I made this fun card to welcome in the Spring. Head on over to see how I made it. Super simple, and a great one for using up those scraps – you know that is my favourite crafty past time!


Cute Chicks….

There is a new sketch challenge up at Annabelle stamps and its a lovely CAS one….

I recently won two adorable stamp sets and one of the sets had coordinating dies too. (Thank you Andrea!!) The set I have used on my card below is the adorable Easter Chickadee set and the coordinating dies for this set is the Easter Chickadee die set.

I inked a card base with Mowed Lawn Distress Ink and stamped two stamps from the set to create a background. I then 3D mounted a white woodgrain embossed panel on the card front. On this I used a black strip with white stamping for my sentiment. The little chicks were die cut from yellow card then stamped. I love how easy this is! I added 3 purple Annabelle Stamps gems under this for a pop of colour contrast.

Here is a side view shot to try show off the woodgrain paper a bit better….its hard stuff to photograph!
