Hey, Chick!

I loved this quirky little set the minutes I set eyes on it – after all who doesn’t like chickens? So today I wanted to share this fun card that Jackie gave me in my recent swap.

Every time I look at it it makes me smile – how about you? Who could resist this fun little chick peeking out from the picket fence.

I thought you might enjoy learning how to make these quick and easy picket fences so you can make this little card too – so today’s video tutorial shows you just that!

Quick & Easy Picket Fences Video Tutorial:

What did I tell you – these are soooo easy to make! And Jackie simply cut a slit with her personal trimmer in the fence to tuck her chick into.

Sitting Here

More swapping fun, this time with the Sitting Here stamp set. This set makes me think of those childhood lazy summer afternoons sitting on the swing with a tall glass of something cool.

Sitting Here

How about you?

This first card was given to me by Connie and I really like the way she chose to show off  one of the secondary images.

Wild about Flowers

Check out this great black & white card that I received in a recent swap from Trudy using the Wild about Flowers stamp set (138728).

Wild About Flowers (2)

Black & White cards are great for beginning stampers or if you haven’t built a larger collection of supplies yet. And Stampin’ Up! has made it easier than ever since you have the option of the classic black & white Designer Series Paper package, Everyday Chic!

The Wild about Flowers stamp set is a great choice, since it covers some different occasions that aren’t normally found in a lot of our sets. You won’t be sorry when you choose this stamp set since it is classic and gives you lots of options. And Two Step stamp sets are great for easily adding color to your images.

Asking yourself, how  didTrudy made that great frame around the image? Well it’s our NEW Tags & Labels Framelits Dies (138282). This set of Framelits Dies contain 4 different shapes in several sizes – so you have lots of options in just one set.
