Here a chick...

there a chick...everywhere a chick chick

LOL! I guess since it's Spring I have chicks on my mind! Soooo I gotta share some cards I made with my Chick Cart stamp from A Muse. Cool how ya can make so many different things with 1 stamp! AND----I'm gonna show ya a secret thing I did with my get more mileage out of it :)

This card "Just a little something" I stamped the Chick Cart & colored with Copics. Then...I drew a line to define the grass/sky area...and shaded with Copics again.

There's glitter around all the scallops - AND on the Egg! Very sparkly!

This next one - "a gift for you" - I stamped the Chick Cart a 2nd time - cut out the Chick & the Egg - then popped them up on foam tape. LOVE doin' that!

Here you can see I masked the Chick Cart before stamping the Grass. See that green shading for the ground???? Wanna know how I did that???? OK - LOL! - I colored with a Green Copic marker...then went over it with the Copic Colorless Blender.

This last card - "happy Easter" - I didn't ink up the presents when I stamped. Then I stamped Tiny Egg several times...masking as I went to give it nice layering. LOVE IT! I also stamped Leafy Tree and added Tiny Egg all over it.

Another thing...I used a black Micron Pen to outline around the eggs & tree. Spica Glitter Pen on the tiny eggs.

So ya ready for the secret ;) Here's 1 green 4bar note card. Can ya guess how I used each piece for ALL 3 CARDS?!

I love using my scraps and getting more out of my pieces of paper!!
