Peachy Keen Stamps: March Release Blog Hop

SQUEAL with delight!
It’s that time once again, folks!
Yep!  We’ve made it through another fabulous round of sneak peeks, and the time has come to reveal the NEW STAMPS!
This release has been so much fun to work with and it’s been all we could do to hold back from sharing every single set in it’s entirety!
Squeal with delight, INDEED, because this release is filled with sweetness and some of the most adorable images EVER!!
If you have made it here from Amber's blog then you are in the right place. If you have just stopped by or get lost along the way, you can head on over to the beginning at the Peachy Keen Stamp Blog.

Now to share with you my project for tonight's hop!

How darling are these chickens? I love them!! Plus, their sweet faces make them the cutest chicks ever!!!

I stamped and paper pieced both of the chickens from PKS: Faceless Chickens on yellow card stock. I stamped their faces from the new PKS: Chickie Faces assortment. I colored their eyes, beaks, and combs with Copic Markers. I pop dotted their little wings as well! The one chick's glasses were cut from SVG Cutting Files: Smartie Pants. I then put Glossy Accents on both of their eyes.

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. 



The card base was cut from SVG Cutting Files: Simple Label Card. For the white background, I embossed it with a 5x7 Cuttlebug Folder called Chicken Wire. 

I embellished the card base with Recollection's Jute Ribbon and then created a paper bow using My Creative Time's Mini Bow Die.

I finished the card by stamping the sentiment with Versamark ink onto a label cut out from My Creative Time's Vintage Label Die and then using black embossing powder on top of it.
