C.C. Designs Sneak Peeks Day One: Hey Chicky

Hello everyone! Did you know that C.C. Designs is celebrating its First Anniversary with FIVE new stamp sets and a new background?!? I opened my Design Team package yesterday and couldn't wait to get started! Christine and the Design Team will be unveiling a new set each day until the release on Friday, April 4 at 12:01 AM. You can check out the All That Scraps Blog this week for more samples and some giveaways!

Today I have two cards I made using Hey Chicky. This is SUCH a cute set -- four different chicks and a sentiment. I had a lot of fun making these samples! On the first card, I stamped the Polka Dots Big Ol' Background in White Craft Ink and embossed with White EP. The Chicky is colored with Copic markers, and I paper pieced the umbrella and boots. I picked up the Splat Rain Drops when I was on vacation last year -- this was the perfect card for them! I colored them just a bit with a Copic marker (BG10 Cool Shadow) before applying them to the image panel. I sponged around the edge of the panel with Soft Sky ink.

On the second card, I used my Cuttlebug and Stylized Flowers embossing folder to make the background. I colored the Chicky with Copics and added a brad to the flower center. The sentiment is from Little Penguins, also by C.C. Designs. I sponged around the image panel and small oval with So Saffron ink.


I hope you like these sneak peeks as much as I liked making them! I hope you'll stop back during the week to see more! Thanks so much for visiting -- have a fantastic day! :)
