Love From Us Chicks

Denise, the owner for Whimsy Stamps, is having a birthday.  I am here showcasing a birthday card in her honor.  She is the “mother” to all the crazy chicks that are the Whimsy design team.  A huge MWAH! from me to her for her special day.  As part of the celebration there is a special Instagram Hop full of chances to win.  You can go check it out if you would like to see all the special inspiration, and for the opportunity to score some good stuff.

Lots of details for the hop below.

Creating This Card:

Oh boy, where do I start on this card?  I started the creation with the Farmhouse Shiplap background stamp, stamped in dark gray.  The later was then placed on paper with a yellow border.  I used the Slimline Chicken Coop for the background piece.  Once it was die cut, I colored it with my markers.  The top cage is just the left over from the main coop after being cut.  If you look at the Coop die you can see all the pieces I used.  Once all the pieces were assembled, I placed it on the pattern paper.  The cute Chicken image was colored, cut and popped up off the card.  I used the OMG die with the chicken coop fence added over it for texture.  If you cut the fence out, color it, and then add to white paper, then you can die cut the top layer of the OMG die to achieve this look.

I used some fun sentiments from a few different sets to finish off the card.  You can find the product links at the end of the post.

Happy Instagram hopping, if you are in the mood.  Details below.
