Sassy Chick with Heather H.

Good morning! Heather here from Houses Built of Cards - super excited to be sharing over here at Avocado Arts again today! This month's stamp set is such a darling and perfect set for spring...which I know many of us would love to have come soon!!!

Here is my first card:

I started off with a die cut tag, then stamped the rolling hills, flower and stem, butterfly and trail, and sentiment onto it. Layered some pattern paper from an MME 6x6 paper pad, a doily, and some white cardstock I ran through my Cuttlebug all behind it, then tied some ribbon and twine on the tag and tucked a few enamel dots on to finish it off.

Next up I played with some embossing paste:

For this one I started with a soft yellow cardstock, and used a stencil and some embossing paste to create a background. I stamped my cute little chick and sentiment onto a die cut frame, colored it with Copics, then added Glossy Accents to the glasses. I drew a line of Copics around the outside of my frame, and covered it with Stickles for a bit more sparkle. Finished off by rounding off a couple of corners, then added some jute twine tied in a bow at the bottom.

Finally - I just had to play with that sunshine!

For this card, I stamped the sunshine on pattern paper, then fussy cut it out. I added an angled panel over my pattern paper (from a Crate Paper 6x6 paper pad), then attached the sun with foam adhesive. I fussy cut out a flower from a little scrap of my pattern paper, then tied a bow with hemp twine and attached my flower over that. Finished off with a bit of bling on the sun to tie it all together.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a wonderful day!
