Nice Normal Family

Today I am using more Never Before Used Schtuff. I pulled out a stamp set from Sparkle N Sprinkle called Chicken Run Stamp Set 761 which I fell in love with but never had used and also found some pattern paper that was a Christmas gift several years ago which had not been opened either. So today was the day to get the stamps inky and use the paper. And, since it will soon be St. Patrick's Day I thought all my family should be dressed in green except for a little pop of red.

My solid silhouette chicken family was inked with a Marvy rainbow pad of green hues and stamped onto white card stock. I added just a touch of red to the older family members on their combs. The sentiment from the set was stamped in Gina K. Designs Christmas Pine. I then took a Die-Namics die set called Wonky Stitches Rectangle Stackers MFT 839 to cut out the white stamped panel as well as the polka dot green pattern paper layer. They were then placed on a base card of white. I added a strip of pattern paper inside the card too so that the inside and outside were connected. The last step was to add some red rhinestones.

I got my inspiration for the colors from this photo which is shown in the Double D Blog challenge for this week. Therefore, this will be entered into their challenge contest.

I am also adding my card to the NBUS challenge which is sponsored by Darnell Knauss.

And the final challenge this will be entered into is the Mod Squad Blog Challenge which is once again using animals which also includes birds. So this will qualify for that also.

I was always waiting for the right time to use that set of chicken stamps and I think this was a perfect opportunity for that. Here is another photo taken from a different angle.

Well, I might be doing more cards later this week but tomorrow I have a checkup for my leg. As far as I know it is still healed so hopefully, the doctor will agree with me. So if I am quiet and not commenting much on your creations that could be why as usually it is an all day affair.

Thanks for stopping by.

God bless,

I made a little scene card using stamps for my May Rudolph Days Challenge entry. I had to add a bit of my own hand drawing to get the look ...
