Try Stamping challenge 306 Hey, Chick

Hello everyone, here we are again with another Try Stamping challenge, boy did this really catch me off guard.  Seems like the last two weeks have just flown by.  Our challenge this time is a fun one and I decided to use some products from sale-a-bration catalog for it.  The bold and bright theme made me think of this designer paper and I thought a  fun stamp set to use would be the Hey, Chick set.  These products are available for free, would you like to know how you can earn them?  Leave your question with a way I can get back to you and I'll help you out!  Have a wonderful "stampendous" day.

Here is the sketch pattern:  Optional theme: Bold and Bright

Card One for Margarets Group

Stamping again for the Pheasant Group!!!  After three months of not being able to go and be with this wonderful group we're going to give it a try this month. (all depends on the weather)
Decided to use a couple new to me stamps this first one is in the Regular catalog.  The "tag" is actually a book mark that can be removed and the recipient of the card can use it.

First Birthday card of the year

I tried a little water coloring with some of my new AI stamps, need to practice some more but it will do for this birthday.  Have you tried a new technique lately?

Try Stampin' Tuesday #304

Hello, and a  Happy New Year to you.  I finally decided to grab some of my stamp supplies and take them to the warm side of the house to make this card.  We live in a 100 year old farm house, often when it is windy and cold I can see the curtains blowing from the outside air.  We used to have frost on the inside of the windows upstairs.  Fun (brrr) fun (shiver) fun (add the layers!!) :0)

So I'm wondering how everyone has been, we have snow here in Ohio, not a lot but enough to keep me in with my bum ankle.  I am now putting full weight on it but still wearing an ankle brace. Ok enough of that, you didn't come to hear all about me.  Our Try Stampin' group took a mini break but we are happy to be back.  Our sketch is a lovely one with so much possibility.  I used some old and new stamps so that takes care of the theme. I hope you have as much fun as I did using this sketch.

Here is the sketch layout;
Theme: Old and New (Use an old item and a new one on your card

TSOT 591. Fun panel card

 Our technique this time is layering. I decided to not follow the sketch and just do some layering. I’m not sure this is what they really me...
