Calling all Spring Chickens: Peachy Keen Stamps blog hop!


Good morning!

Welcome to the March Mid-Month Release Blog Hop at Peachy Keen Stamps!


You should have arrived here from Joanna's Blog, if you’re hopping along in the set order, but if you just happened upon this post then you can go back to the beginning at The Peachy Keen Stamps Blog and start from there so you don’t miss one wonderful project.

You’ll find the complete blog hop order on The Peachy Keen Stamps Blog should you happen to get lost along the way.


So, I was a bit patterned paper, spring colors, and texture crazy when I designed my cards for today's hop.  Put your sunglasses on and check them out! lol!  

I used the adorable Faceless Chickens with the coordinating Chickie Face Assortment stamp set for both cards - my first one was made like a 'traditional' chicken and my second was designed to look like a peep!   The sentiment on the first card is from the adorable add-on Clucks sentiment stamp set.

Can I just say right now how much I LOVE PKS background stamps - they are just fabulous!  Kathy is releasing two new ones, both of them just perfect in my book:  the Chicken Wire (used on the first card) and Harringbone (used on my second card below).  As you can see, I stamped them in Versamark ink, embossed with white detail embossing powder on patterned paper - so fun with the double pattern/texture on them both!


My second card is as bright and busy as my first - lol!  The sentiment is from the new Sunny Side Up - that set is so fun with the sentiments and the sunglasses image!  I used last month's Kawaii's Face Assortment stamp set (the 1" size) for the face on my sun die cut.


To continue on today's blog hop, please check hop over to Jessica Esch's blog!

Happy hopping and have a great day!
Jessica
