Stampin' UP! Best of Cluck Thanks

I bought this now retired SU set just for this stamp of the chicks . . . it's one of my all time SU favorites! I stamped the weathered background stamp from Cornish Heritage Farms in chocolate chip on kraft cardstock and stamped the chicks in chocolate chip on very vanilla and colored them with my Prismacolor pencils, adding some shading around the perimeter of the image and some "dirt" under the chicks. I matted the chicks over the gingham ribbon and then on to chocolate chip, added that to the card, tied the ribbon and then stamped the chicken tracks. Note: I usually create card "fronts" and then mount those to light colored cardstock so the sentiment can be stamped directly on the inside and to hide any ribbon or brads, etc. I prefer the inside not have anything showing, unless it's ribbon in the fold of the card.


  1. Simply Adorable! Love those chicks, too! And I especially love the card! ;)

  2. I love this stamp set - it's one of my favorites, so I kept it when it retired. Adorable card!! My favorite stamp in the set is the single chicken. I turn him into a "funky" chicken of sorts, in reds and black and white, with polka-dots or stripes. I like him to have different "sections" of color. Fun stamp set and great card!!!


Thank you for taking time to comment . . . it feeds my mojo!
