What the Cluck?

Hi everyone! I'm back to share another Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog DT inspiration project for LTSCB #68 - Anything Goes! It's our last challenge of the year and we're being sponsored this time by Stitchy Bear's Digi OutletAngie's Digital Stamps and A Day For Daisies! Come play with us - we know you love some anything goes!

I created projects using images from two of our sponsors. For this second project, I chose the fun 'Amy Hen' digi from A Day For Daisies for a belated birthday card. I just got a fun new stamp set with chicken sentiments and stamps, and knew they would go perfectly together! ;)

Ms. Hen definitely deserves to be showcased in bold prints and bright colors of yellow, red and orange. I dry embossed some orange foil cardstock with a chicken wire embossing folder. I cut the chicken image with a round stitched die, and added a pretty multi-loop bow with a retro flower embellishment.

For the inside, I stamped a belated sentiment on a layered panel.

Proud to enter this belated birthday card into the following challenges:

  • Cardstock/Paper: GKD Pure Luxury Ivory and Tomato Soup cardstock, DVWV Orange Foil cardstock, GKD Watercolor Garden and The Simple Things 6x6 patterned paper packs
  • Stamps: A Day For Daisies 'Amy Hen' digial image, Paper Pretties Cluck Part II stamp set
  • Ink: Stampin' Up! Cherry Cobbler ink (#126966); Spectrum Noir- DR3, DR5, DR6, TN2, TN6, IG1, LY1, LY2, LY3
  • Dies/Punches: MFT Die-namics Stitched Rectangle STAX and Stitched Circle Layers dies
  • Accessories: MISTI, Darice chicken wire embossing folder, white gel pen, Red YNS Gumdrops, silver gemstones, Studios Blackbird ribbon, Bow-it-All v2.0, retro flower button

I hope you've enjoyed both of today's projects and have found a little inspiration to play in our Anything Goes challenge this time!
