Country Chickens!


Hello Dies R Us friends!  Vickie Y with you today sharing two poultry cards!  My mother-in-law collects all things chickens so my cards will be included as part of a a few chicken gifts for her birthday.

Here's how I created the card posted above:
I first die cut the dies found in the Dies R Us online store.  (I'll post a link to each die set below.)

Then I started layering the dies on the card panel, first the grass dies

then, the dandelion border die cut


then the clouds

And, finally the rooster to complete the card panel.  The card panel was attached to a 5x5 inch card base.

Here are the dies used for the card posted above:




I used the Memory Box Stitched Clouds; BUT, the Memory Box Cloud Bank would make a great substitution from the DRU store

Since I had a chicken die leftover from the Frantic Stamper Stitched Poultry die cuts I decided to creat another poultry card!



Here are the dies I used to create this card:



I also used a circle die from Frantic Stamper Stitched Circles; however, this die set is not available in the DRU store, but any circle die can be substituted.  Here is a link to several stitched circle dies from the store.


Don't forget to come join in the fun at the Dies R Us Challenge Blog.  There's a new challenge theme offered on the 1st and 15th of each month and one lucky randomly drawn winner will receive a gift voucher prize to the Dies R Us Store.  For your convenience, all the important Dies R Us links are provided below.

  1. Not sure what happened but my comment was deleted instead of published, so here goes again :-)
    I love your poultry cards. The scene you created on the first card is so pretty, and the black, white and red colour combo is just perfect for your second card.
    Hugs,
