Levitating Chicks for Darnell

Hello stampin' peeps!

I have a slight boo boo (although my friend thinks it's fun as is)

I had seen cards on line with these chicks stacked and thought they were so cute.

After I stamped, I realized I needed to do some masking.

Can't you just hear that middle check saying "where do you think you're going"?

Anyway, when I realized what was going on with these biddies, I set them aside 

I did get a card done that I wouldn't be afraid to send out.


This is her first outing on my blog so it is sort of a NBUS.

But truth be told, I had used this stamp for a class before this card.



and this one for another class.

 There's been a lot of cackling going on around the studio!

It's been great fun!

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Enjoy!

These are all so cute. I think this is one of my favorite stamp sets from SU. It just makes me laugh and I love every card I've seen made with it. Your boo boo card is fun just as it is!

Carole said...

I think your chicks are multiplying!!..lol Great cards!

This #1 just made me laugh!Clever idea & I didn't see any place where you needed to mask. This will be a terrific 'cheerup' card. Also loved the others where you've used these funky chicks..the goofy one cracks me up every time I see it used! Well done, and your classes will be such fun. TFS & Hugs

I love those chickies. I did a similar boo boo. Ended up fussy cutting the top 2 chicks and snipped off their legs to sit one on top of the other. That wild hair chick cracks me up--always so cute peeking out.

Cute, cute cards Bonnie! I have that set too (HAD to have it!) and sadly it has not seen any ink at my house...must change that after seeing all your cuties! And I think your boo boo card would have been just fine!! :0)

Darnell said...

Those old hens should not be climbing at their ages!! Too funny, Bonnie! Thank you for being a good sport and sharing your fun boo boo in the Hop and your sorta NBUS is good-enough NBUS for #11!! All the cards you made for class are great designs! I can just hear all the cackling and wish I had been there! Mwah! Hugs, Darnell

Fabulous Bonnie and thanks for the giggle with not only your boo boo but also the completed cards. I imagine once those cards depart the studio will be a lot quieter :)
Blessings

Cute as can be - I have a big smile on my face Bonnie! We used to have chickens when we lived in the mountains of North Carollina.

Cute cards -- total fun!

Ruth said...

Hahahaha! I had to laugh at your levitating chicks - a real hoot! But your not quite NBUS cards are really lovely - I keep eyeing up that stitched panel die! xx

Verna Angerhofer said...

All the cards are wonderful but I agree with your friend. The first one is so fun and cute as well and if you added a sentiment like you mentioned it would be a real "hoot".

Christine Alexander said...

what a fantastic bunch of old birds :) love those cards.

Nancy Stislow said...

Bonnie, these images are SO fun! Haven't seen them before. Love that last card with the chick peeking in from the side. These are all terrific, Bonnie!

nancy littrell said...

Such cute and fun chicken cards Bonnie. I think your boo, boo card is just as fun and no one, but maybe another stamper would notice your not very noticeable boo, boo my friend. Hugs..

Susan said...

Such cute chickens - made me smile! A great trio of cards!

Christi Conley said...

Flying chickens made this chick laugh! LOL!
