Now to share my project!
For my project, I used the brand new chicken wire background stamp and sentiments from the March Mid-Month release. They match up perfectly with the PKS-Faceless Chickens and PKS-Chickie Faces. I love that the sentiments have a couple of faces to create a cool chick with glasses. I know you are going to love them too!
I stamped and paper pieced each little chick. I created another nest just like I did on my card for the March release. If you didn't see it here is how I created it. For the nest, I first started with a base nest that I cut out using my Cricut and the Baby Steps cartridge. I then covered it with craft raffia grass. I cut out the two eggs using My Creative Time's Hello Chickie die and colored them with a Copic "Shell" colored marker.
For the title, I used my Cricut and Cricut Craft Room Basics. I then added white gel pen accents.
For the little picture frames, I cut them out using My Creative Time's 4x4 Journal Die and More. Then I stamped each one with the new chicken wire background stamp. I then cut out the banner die from My Creative Time's Chocolate Greeting Die and added a coordinating sentiment to each picture. They are all from the new sentiments except "Blessed!" comes from PKSC-27 March 2014. I created it from the "God Bless You" stamp and the "Hitched" stamp.
I then used mini clothes pens that I got at Wal-Mart to add them to the chicken wire frame.
The new stamps are available for purchase in the Peachy Keen Stamps Store.
