Farm Chicks~A Blog Hop With Crafty Secrets


I'm taking part in the Crafty Secrets Farm Chicks Blog Hop along with the rest of the crazy creative designers on the Crafty Secrets Team.  Each design team member has used the new Farm Chicks Digital Art Stamps, or the new Digital Chicken Farm Print paper...or both to create a fabulous chicken themed project to inspire and delight you!   If you are coming here from Darlene's  BLOG, then you are right on track. If not, you can go back to the Crafty Secrets Blog and follow the links.

Every great blog hop needs a prize, and one lucky winner will receive their very own set of the Farm Chicks Digital Art Stamps and the digital Chicken Farm Paper, too. To win, simply visit every blog listed below and leave a nice comment.  Then, finish up this hop on the Crafty Secrets BLOG and let us know that you've visited and commented on all the designers’ blogs.  The winner will be randomly chosen from one of the blog comments on one of the designer's blogs.  How fun is that?
From here, you should strut on over to visit Elizabeth's fabulous blog.  She has a wonderful project to share with you, and is the next link on the hop!

Just a few things about my card for today.
I printed the background paper,
which is part of the Farm Chicks stamp set
on a yellow card stock.


The hen and chick are from the Chicken Farm Paper.
I printed it in a smaller 4 x 6 size 3 times,
then cut just the "chicks' out,
popped them up for a 3D effect,
but I also used Ranger Crackle accents
on the top piece for a bit of texture.

The Farm Fresh banner is from the
farm chicks stamp set,
which I printed on aqua paper.

To finish I made a few Daisy flowers
and added a bow from the April Ribbon Club Release
from Really Reasonable Ribbon.


From my "old" stash a black mini clothes pin and
3 stick on buttons were added.


Have fun on the hop...and good luck...
I hope "you" win!!!

Great card, Diane! I love the color combo of yellow and blue, but the aqua really makes it POP! I love the chicks, and of course the flowers. Thanks for sharing this beautiful card.

What a cute and fun card!!

Elizabeth said...

Perfect composition! I love the depth you have created with the layers! (old play on words, have almost had enough layered on at this point) I can't believe how much the detail comes alive with the addition of the glossy top coat. Love your card Diane.
