So... I mentioned I have new stamps. Getting right down to business, I'm starting with a stamp and die combo from Your Next Stamp -- "So EGG-citing". You know how I like to color, and I'm developing a fondness for clean and simple cards, but, I also still like to goof around with fun, silly stuff, and play with dies and frames and papers and card designs. Believe it or not, my husband thought this card was just the neatest thing. I told him that's why I call it "playing in my room".
Perhaps it seems like a whole lot of card for that one little ol' egg carton, but I couldn't stop. I had to use the chicken wire and wood grain frame. Needed something for the corner, so along came the grass. Well, what's a party without a little decoration? Hence the banner. Thought about using kraft for the card base, but then remembered this burlap paper which I've had for quite a long while and have never used. Yes, this card represents a good deal of fun.
I sponged a yellowish glow on the background so there'd be lights on in the hen house.
I used a partial sentiment on the front, and saved the egg-pun sentiment for the inside.
I rarely buy a set's matching dies, but this time it was absolutely essential for putting the eggs and chicks in the carton.
Playing along in two challenges today:
Seize the Birthday: Anything Goes
Alphabet Challenge: Y for Your Choice
I'll come back around to this set later. It's such a simple little thing with bunches of stamps and sentiments for several occasions. Makes me giggle. Have a happy day!
