Hey everybody, Happy Thursday! I hope your week is going without incident! We had a sad little hiccup here with a very pregnant female kitty that a neighbor trapped and brought to us. She was very sick so the vet put her on an antibiotic, but sadly all six newborn kittens got sick too and none of them made it. Fly high, sweet babies, God had other plans for you. <3 On a lighter note, I’ve popped in this morning to share another super cute sample created with one of the amazing stamp sets in the Prickley Pear Stamps new release. I created an adorable friendship card featuring the new Chicken Gal Pals stamp set! OMGoodness, I L-O-V-E this stamp set! I stuck with a warm color palette of yellow, brown and red, but the possibilities are endless coloring these gals – from subdued to bright and funky!
I cut a standard A2 size side-folding landscape card base from 110# Solar White cardstock and rounded the bottom right corner. I also cut a layering panel and strip from CutCardStock Basis Gold cardstock, another layering panel from 80# Solar White cardstock, and a flag from CutCardStock Basis Light Yellow cardstock. I stamped chicken wire repetitively over the lighter weight Solar White layering panel in Memento Luxe Wedding Dress ink and adhered it to the Basis Gold panel, and then adhered the Basis Gold strip across the bottom. I stamped the chicken, nest and egg images on a piece of the lighter weight Solar White cardstock, colored them with alcohol markers, and fussy cut them all. Finally, I stamped the sentiment on the flag and adhered it to the upper left corner, and then arranged the mama chicken, her eggs and chicks. The finishing touch was adding a few Eyelet Outlet clear gemstones that I colored with a light brown alcohol marker and an Eyelet Outlet red enamel heart to the flag.
And one more look… super happy with how this friendship card turned out! Love, love, love this stamp set!
