Sunshiny Chick

January 31, 2017

My mother-in-laws birthday is coming up soon. My daughter wanted to make her a birthday card. Her favorite color is blue.

I found ink smooshing to be a quick way to create a lot of interesting cards. We made nine Thank You cards, three teacher valentine cards, and one birthday card in one afternoon.




Size:  Vertical side fold A2 cards

Extra Details: We started by stamping the chick and frame images on some scrap water color paper. I used a grey ink for the frame and black ink for everything else. I used Distress Inks to water color all of the images.  Once the ink was dry I fussy cut everything out. I added a flower detail to the chick with some glitter gel pens.

Then, I created the card base from some more water color paper. I ink smooshed three shades of blue Distress ink on the front of the card base. I also flicked some of the extra ink on the card base to create interest.

Once that was dry, we attached the images using glue dots. The frame was attached with dimensional glue dots and the chick and accessories used flat glue dots.

Stamps Used: Lawn Fawn’s Flirty Frames, Chirpy Chirp Chirp, and Sunny Skies

Ink: Versa Fine

Distress Inks in Blueprint Sketch, Chipped Sapphire, Mustard Seed, Hickory Smoke, Walnut Stain, Brushed Corduroy, Mermaid Lagoon, Squeezed Lemonade, and Spiced Marmalade


Hope you enjoyed the card
