Crackin' Out

Playing over at Splitcoaststampers for the Virtual Stamp Night...which was last night, but I didn't get a chance to play then since we had our cousins over for a visit, always good times when we're together.
I got a chance to read a couple challenges, and got excited to think I should 'crack' out my new set Everybunny, to play the first one: Which came first? the chicken or the egg?
One of the images is a chick hatching.
Part of the challenge is to complete the card in 45 minutes (good for me, as I monkey about usually, so I like that I need to glue things down! ~ take a picture and load it)

I hadn't cracked open the Designer Series Paper I bought with Hostess credits some time ago, so worked with it tonight, too. I stamped the image with Staz On. Then worked with Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose and Daffodil Delight markers. I attempted to blend a bit and add some layers of colour from Karen Barber's tutorial, but it only worked so-so (get to practice that more, I guess!) I layed out the different colours of the 2-sided first thinking to work with a green but at the last minute going with the stripes. (I think I'm using this set again for the Tulip maybe the green side will get used on it...) I stamped the image twice, cutting out the egg to lay on the ground, popped up on dimensionals. I used the Big Shot Lots of Tags Sizzlets for the saying. I don't use thse nearly enough for how much I love them!

I'm taking a class with May Flaum through Big Picture Classes, so I'm hoping to try to work some misting into one of these challenges, too. We'll see how it goes tomorrow. Maybe first thing in the morning, before heading out for a Family Festival event at the National Historic Park...



  1. Hi Laurie! I had to check out your new blog! Looking good! I am now a follower!

    I am loving this sweet little chick!! Since my son got the chickens, I have been noticing chicken and rooster images!! I even found several rooster images in my stash that I have never used! Score! :)
