Cutest little chickie ever!

Hi everyone!

I have such a cute card to share with you today and another one of my Seed Packet Templates (see below) for you to download.  I really had fun making this card and decided to make this little chickie waving a get well flag.

The little chick is from the 2016 Sale-a-bration catalogue and it's free with a $60 (Cdn) order.  The stamp set is called Honeycomb Happiness and it's just adorable...love, love, love it!

I stamped the baby chick with Black Stazon on watercolour paper, then I painted him with Crushed Curry using my aqua painter.  I totally painted outside the lines (because I love to and I can!) and then  carefully cut him out. I did feel bad cutting off his feet but I gave him a little nest of slivered Crumb Cake that I made by cutting fine strips, then scrumpled them up, creating the perfect little nest.

I cut the pieces for the sentiment and outlined them with my black marker using the wide tip on it's side and the banner was cut using the little banner punch.  I added the black dots with the fine tip of the same black marker. The flag pole is a narrow strip of the yellow cardstock outlined in black as well.

The sentiment is from the Greatest Greetings stamp set and I altered my stamp a bit, I can't think of when I would say 'get well sooner' so I carefully cut off the last two letters so my stamp now says 'get well soon' which works better for me!  I love the font in this greeting set...it just looks so cheerful!

Isn't this such a cute little baby chick!  Here's a close up of him, I coloured his beak with Tangerine Tango marker and added a little black to his eyes.  I just can't get enough of this little guy!

  I hope you like today's card!

Here's my latest Seed Package for you, just click on the image below and save it to your computer and print out.  I hope you have fun with it!

PS...The name 'LILYBEAN & MARSHALL' on the seed packet is for my sweet little (well she's not so little anymore!) cat, LilyBean...she's my soft, gentle, adorable little sweetie!

I'll be back with another share soon!  xoxo

The Sky is the Limit!

Hi everyone!

I have another quick card to share with you today.  I inked up the World Traveler embossing folder with Island Indigo ink, placed my card layer inside and ran it through my Big Shot.

Then I used a sponge dauber and Crumb Cake ink to rub on the continents and with a little of Island Indigo residue, the colour turned a pretty shade of green.  I love it when surprises happen! Next, I stamped the plane in Black Memento Ink and fussy cut it out.

I added some silver cording to the back of the plane on each side and then to the center of the sentiment so that it looks like the plane is flying a Happy Birthday banner.

Below is a close up of the propeller I made.  I covered a scrap of cardstock with tin foil (using double sided sticky tape) and cut out a circle using the smallest circle die. Then I cut into it so that it looks like a propeller...lol...well it sort of looks like a propeller! I attached the propeller to the plane with a small brad.  

To finish, I distressed the art piece layer on all sides, layered it on a black panel, then to the Island Indigo card base.

This card was fun, easy and I got lots of ink on my fingers too! What could be better!

I hope you're having a great day, thanks so much for stopping by to visit me!
