Today’s project is a cute little card that uses unexpected stamp sets.  I adore humorous stamp sets.  Sometimes they are just the perfect way to deliver a message.


I think this chick is adorable.  Plus I don’t know if you have noticed all of the beautiful paper in the Garden Lane Designer Series Paper.  I have used it for a couple of cards recently.  It just seems to match the theme of my card.

The chick is from the Birds of A Feather stamp set in the upcoming Holiday Catalog.  It has birds that fit a variety of holiday occasions.  For today’s card I paired it with a sentiment from a different Holiday Catalog set titled Gather Together.  You may remember I used that set last week for the Fall/Pumpkin card.  You are getting sneak peeks at the great products coming up in a little over a week.

I used the Stitched Nested Labels die to showcase the chick.  I cut off the top of it straight and it makes the perfect banner.  I used some creative license on the coloring of the bird.  To tie that to the DSP, I used the Nature’s Twine wrapped around the banner.

Thank you for stopping in today.  I hope you will return on Monday for another week of new products!
