Hey Chickie

Ever been in a stampin' rut? Got 'stamper's block'? Great news! Stampin' Up! has an incredible variety of products that you can use to whip up adorable cards and projects - no stamps required. For today's chickie card I used On Board So Tweet and some sweet Tea Party Designer Series Paper.

Stampin' Up! chipboard is a snap to cover:
  1. Cut a piece of designer series paper slightly larger than the image you are going to cover.
  2. Adhere paper to chipboard using adhesive - be sure the design you want to show is facing outward.
  3. Trim closely around your shape.
  4. Rub sides with a sanding block to keep 'funky edges' away! Confession: I didn't have any sanding blocks today, so in a 'pinch' I used a nail file -- it worked perfectly! ;)
The layout for my card is from Our Creative Corner.
My card measurements are:
Almost Amethyst Base: 5" x 7"
Background: 4.75" x 6.75"
Striped Panel: 3.75" x 5"
Floral Panel: 2.5" x 4.75"

So Saffron Ribbon from the Sale-A-Bration Ribbon bundle is layered with Pretty in Pink 1/4" grosgrain. Instead of a bow, (because you and I both know that sometimes bows are hard to get just right) I opted for a K&Co. paper flower for embellishment.

I stuck my Easter chickie to my card front using Glue Dots -- pop-up for the main body and mini for her other parts. Lastly, a quick rub-on sentiment was added to a tab courtesy of my Round Tab Punch. Two So Saffron brads perfectly pull everything together.

Beautiful blend of patterns. I was so pleasantly surprised when I bought this chipboard set (my first). So fun to cover the pieces with pretty paper. The round tab accent is just wonderful. I'm always looking for ways to use it! Hugs, Mary

I think the nail file probably worked better than a sanding block would have anyway.

This is so cute!
