Sweet Blessings!

Happy Friday, friends!  I have a card to share today playing along with a few blog challenges.

 I  started with select white card stock.  ink blended  and splattered one panel using lemon tart, harvest gold, bright buttercup, and summer sunrise inks.  I die cut the panel using the Sunburst Frame die. I added this panel to a lemon tart card stock panel.  I used an artist brush with black acrylic paint and to add splatters. 

Next, I stamped and die cut the adorable little chicks from Feather Friends 20 stamp set and Feather Friends 20 die set using the same inks. I also stamped and die cut the Vase Collection 7 stamp set and Vase Collection die set using soft stone, weather vane, and cocoa bean inks.

To ground my little "mischievous" chicks, I die cut the Shape Shifters: Circle 4 die twice.  On one circle I ink blended and splattered hawaiian shores ink and water. On the other circle, I ink blended and splattered limeade ice and new leaf inks with some water.  I die cut the green panel with the Grassy Edge die.  I arranged the elements onto the panel.  I wanted it to look like these cute chicks knocked over the pale of flowers.

  For the flowers, I used the individual elements from Easter Egg-travagance stamp set and Easter Egg-travagance die set.  This set makes some beautiful flowers and leaves. I stamped the sentiment using Inside Greetings: Spring Blessings stamp set. I die cut it using the Wine Bottle tag 2 die.  I  added all of my elements and added the panel to a top folding  select white card stock base using foam tape.   I finished the card with a few clear sequins.

Here is a list of many of the products I generally
use every time I make a card.

As always thanks so much for stopping by!

  3. Hi Betty, I just had to stop over here and see this darling card that I saw on The Paper Players listed as the top winner. It is super cute! I adore those little chicks popping out of the bucket like that. This card makes me think of the vintage Easter cards from the early-midcentury. Simply adorable!!!
