Chicken in with a Giveaway

Hey peeps - 

How was your weekend? I spent mine snowed in for the most part. That meant I had lots of time to work on some crafty projects when I wasn't outside moving snow from one spot to another. Yay for a snowblower that actually started. ;)

Speaking of projects I'm sharing a couple of fun chicken cards using stamps that the awesome folks at Technique Tuesday sent me. They know a cute critter just speaks to me!

For my cards I used the new Chicken Family Stamp Set and coordinating dies.

I just love the rooster in this set. He's a delight to color. I used a warm yellow and orange palette to color his feathers. I added some Glossy Accents and a fine crystal glitter here and there.

I also used the little chick image from the set to make a patterned background. There is also a little "CLUCK" die included in the die set. I cut that out several times and layered them together to make a little accent.

I mentioned that I liked the rooster image, right? So much so that I used it a second time. This time I went for a cool tone on the card. I'm not sure there are real chickens with blue feathers but... artistic license.

Again I accented my fine feathered friend with Glossy Accents and fine crystal glitter.

I hope you enjoyed these cards made with the delightful Chicken Family Stamp Set. And if you do, here is your opportunity to win the set (or one of the other Animal House stamp sets)! The wonderful peeps at Technique Tuesday are sponsoring a giveaway. Read all the details below.

  6. I have a friend who raised chickens and gives their eggs to her friends. i would love to own the Chicken Family set to make her a gift set of cards. She does so much for so many people. I know it would make her smile and people would love getting them from her. Beautiful job on your designs. Everyone should have a blue chicken and I love the glossy accents.

  7. Oh my Danielle I love your card designs, especially the one with the little chick stamped tone on tone on the kraft card stock. I went to look at the other stamp sets and OMG what a difficult job it was to pick my favourite. Eventually after reading all the sentiments for each set too, I picked 'The Turtle Trio' because of the sentiment 'When you reach 150 then you can moan about being old!'. I thought that was so funny. The sentiments in this stamp set were all hilarious. I also loved, loved loved - 'Just pop my head out to say hello!'. Thank you for the opportunity for a give-away I don't win anything normally but it was fun looking at these clear stamp sets anyway. Thank you Danielle. :O)
