Enjoy the little things!


Luckily Lawn Fawn has a ton of stamps with peeps! (Chicks.) This made mixing and matching easy for this card! Not pictured: chicks in party hats, chicks in wedding garb, chicks in scarves, etc.

I'm entering these cards into three challenges:
MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge - Sketch 394,
MFT Color Challenge 97, and
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Use A Die and/or Punch.
Lawn Fawn Stamps: Critters on the Savana
Lawn Fawn Stamps: Village Shops
Lawn Fawn Stamps: Yay, Kites!
Lawn Fawn Stamps: Critters on the Farm
Lawn Fawn Stamps: Critters in the Forest
Lawn Fawn Dies: Mini Picture Frames
Memento Tuxedo Black Dye Ink
Distress Oxide in Abandoned Coral
Distress Oxide in Squeezed Lemonade
Distress Oxide in Carved Pumpkin
Ranger Mini Ink Blending Tool
Darice Embossing Folder: Scroll Background
Art Glitter: Designer Dries Clear Adhesive

Other Materials
white card base; four various patterned papers: paper cutter; detail sponge tool; MISTI-type stamping aid or stamp blocks; and die cutting machine (Example: the Big Shot)

Start by embossing the front of your card base. Using the yellow first, blend distress oxide from the top down to about 2/3s of the way down the card. Start with orange and work your way up from the bottom to about halfway. Add a bit of coral to the orange, and blend in more yellow as needed.

Cut each of the four patterned papers using the Mini Picture Frames die. To save time, use the printed side of the frame and flip the inside over to use the white side. Stamp each of the peeps with black ink and color in using the yellow distress oxide and your detail sponge tool. Put a tiny bit of orange on each beak. Stamp out a sentiment from the Village Shops stamp set in coral on white paper; trim appropriately. Assemble and glue as seen. Peep!
