Clucking Awesome Cards

I made two similar cards today.  Both shaped and both using chicks and eggs.

I used the same sentiments on both the inside and outside on both cards.  Both sentiments are from Jaded Blossom.

I used the chick in egg from "Simply Charmed" to create this shaped card.  I added some white gel pen accents to his eyes and then inked the edges of the sentiment with some Distress Ink for a bit of a pop.  The rectangle on which I stamped my sentiment is from Jaded Blossom.

My other one is a slider card, made using a file from SVG Cutting Files.  I used the same white gel pen accents on the eyes and also more Distress Ink on the sentiment.

Droid Girl

I have a coworker who will be leaving for a new job.  Next week is her last week, so I thought I would make a card for everyone to sign for her last day.  She is a bit of a geek, like me, so I thought this would be a fun card for her.

The card is 5 1/2"x4 1/4" and the mat is 5 1/4"x4."  I used dies from Jaded Blossom for the card mat, planet, and star.  The planet is embossed using a Tim Holtz embossing folder.

The little girl dressed in an R2-D2 dress is from SVG Cutting Files.  I used a face stamp from Peachy Keen.  I then added some white gel pen accents and used some chalk on her cheeks.

I thought she need a little something extra, so I tied some baker's twine into a bow for her hair.

The sentiment is from Scrappy Moms Stamps.

Ninja Turtle

My brother's birthday is next week, so I made this card for him.  We grew up watching Ninja Turtles, so I thought this would be a cute idea.

The card base is made from metal hexagon dies from Jaded Blossom.  The sentiment is also from them.

My little guy dressed as a turtle is a cut file from SVG Cutting Files.  I added a mask from the Create a Friend Cricut cartridge to make it look like a Ninja Turtle.

I added some googly eyes to the mask for fun.  I also used a stamp from Peachy Keen for the face, which I accented with a white gel pen and some chalk.
