I have another birthday card to share with you today! lol! This card was made for Lorie, the amazing DT coordinator for Peachy Keen Stamps. To know her is to love and appreciate her, trust me. She made my time with Peachy Keen Stamps an easy one - always available for questions and help along with kindness and thoughtfulness to all her team members.
There is a blog hop going on for her birthday today, so if you've been following along on the hop, you should have arrived here from Denise's blog.
I pulled out my all time favorite Peachy Keen Stamps critter - the Faceless Chicken stamp set. I added a set of eyes from the Chickie Face Assortment stampset (the 3/4" as is recommended) and used the sentiments from the Clucks Sentiments stamp set, stamping them on patterned paper and cutting them out individually as shown above. I also used the Chicken Wire background stamp set on the yellow card front - I love PKS background stamps!
As you can see, I paper pieced the chicken, adding some Copic highlights and then 'tucked' her in a nest of tissue paper, die cut with a scallop circle and crinkled up for texture. I should have spritzed some brown or yellow ink over the tissue paper (or used colored tissue paper) because the white is pretty washed out on the card. It looks better in person. lol!
Next up on the hop is Corina!.
Happy, happy birthday, Lorie!
I hope this is a wonderful day and year for you, sweet lady!
