LOC NR Cuppa Chicken Love

I am having trouble - I have made so many cards with the Layers of Color New Release sets, I don't know what to show you first! LOL!  If that is the only problem I have today I am laughing!!

I decided to show you one of the quick and easy cards I created

How cute is this Chicken from the Rise & Shine art stamp set in the Chicken Wire Teacup Cling art stamp - they just go hand in hand to me!!  Add a tag from the Artful Endearment art stamp set and it is complete!

The Chicken Wire Teacup has been stamped into white card stock and cut out using the Spellbinders Grand Calibur  and Standard Circle Lge - I sponged around the Circle before taking it out of the Nestibilitie.

I stamped the chicken onto yellow card stock and added a little bit of shading, popping it up onto the Circle with foam tape.

The sentiment has been cut with the EK Ticketed Punch, sponged - added some string and wha-la an instant tag.  I am thinking this card would be good for a Get Well Card, along with other occasions.
This card is for the following challenges:

  1. Oh! I'm thanking you so much for saying what punch you used for the ticket! =)) I saw these in the LOC gallery and knew I had to have that! I was just so hoping it was a punch and not ready-made tickets you had stamped on!! YEA!!
    Oh yes!! And the finished card is adorable! I have a daughter who loves chickens, and I will be investing in these stamps in the near future!!

  2. Okay! I'm posting another comment so you can laugh at me, with me!!
    While I was doing an online search for the EK Success Ticket Punch, I was reminded........That I Have The SU! Ticket Corner Punch!
    Silly me! I can make a ticket, of any size, any time I want! =)) Double YEA!!
