Little Chickie Agenda with Nichol

Hello friends! Nichol here with a Designer Series project featuring the Favor Bag Chickie and Little Chickie Agenda stamps and dies combined to create these adorable springtime scene cards! In addition to the new chickie products I used the brand new Oval Scallop Frames to create the cracked "eggs" too! Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers were used for the no-line coloring of the chickies. With so many cute products I couldn't stop at just one card and have three to share with you today!
To watch the creation of these die cut scene cards from start to finish, click HERE or watch below:


I started by creating the backgrounds for all three scene cards with a clouds stencil and Peacock Feathers Distress Ink. A Grassy Trio Border was die cut from green cardstock, the edges inked with Mowed Lawn Distress Ink and adhered along the bottom edge of each cloud background. Sentiments from the Hello Friend Wishes Stamp Set were stamped along the bottom edge of each design with clear embossing ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. I love how the bright white sentiments stand out against the green cardstock!

Chickies were die cut from light yellow, orange, ivory, black, and red cardstock using the Favor Bag Add On Chickie Dies. The chickie was inked with Mustard Seed Distress Ink and pink cheeks were created with Spun Sugar Distress Ink and a sponge dauber. The wings for each chickie were inked with Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink. Each chickie was assembled and adhered to the design as shown. Their are multiple ways to put together the Chickie (and all Favor Bag Add Ons) for many design possibilities!

Eggs were die cut from teal cardstock using the Oval Scallop Frames Dies. I love that you can create die cut ovals and even cracked eggs! I used the zig zag die to make cracked eggs for my cards. The edges were inked with Peacock Feathers Distress Ink and splattered with Picket Fence Distress Paint for speckled eggs.

Bows were die cut from bright pink cardstock using the Dainty Bow Die, assembled and added to the die cut Chickies on two of the cards. A heart from the Pocket Envelope Die Collection was die cut from red cardstock and adhered under the sentiment on one of the cards.

The cards were finished by adding Glossy Accents to the eyes and beaks of the Chickies. White dots were added to the cheeks of the die cut and stamped chickies. Once the Glossy Accents dries, white highlights were added to the eyes and beaks.
