Cute Chickies

I just love cute things, and these chickens are adorable (in my opinion anyway), and I couldn't wait to use these sweet new dies.  Really Reasonable Ribbon always provides me with the perfect accents for every project.  I actually made four of the chickens because there are four in the set.  However, I quickly realized that all four chickens wouldn't fit on a regular A-2 card.  It would have had to be a slimline, so the one little (pink) chicken didn't quite make the cut.  LOL
That's why I decided to make a matching tag.  I die-cut a tag from the same patterned paper that I used on another chick.  I added some of the die-cut chicken wire and then placed my pink chicken on the tag.  I added a length of both Orange Baker's Twine and Cherry Baker's Twine to the top of my tag as well as a bow tied with Olive Green Wrinkle Ribbon.
I used black cardstock for the base and then white cardstock that I both pressure embossed with a Darice Embossing Folder (difficult to see) and then die-cut with a Darice chicken wire die.  I used various patterned paper scraps to cut these cute little chickens.  I used orange cardstock for their legs and red cardstock for their gobblers.  I used lots of fabulous Scor-Tape to secure everything in place.
The stamped sentiment is from Paper Sweeties and can be found in their What's Up Chickie Stamp Set.  I used Moss Green & Cream Gingham Ribbon on my card, and that's also from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  The sentiment banner is from Stamp Simply and is called Fishtail Banner Dies.  It's fun to use products from different companies, and this card combines several.  I love the texture and pizzazz that ribbons add, and Really Reasonable Ribbon has the best selection.
I'd love to hear what you think of my cute little chickens.  This was a really fun card to make, and I hope to share it in a few challenges.  Don't miss all the wonderful products waiting for you at Really Reasonable Ribbon and all the wonderful inspiration you can find on the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog.  I hope you're having a great week and creating pretty things.  I look forward to seeing your creations.  Happy crafting, and thanks so much for visiting me today.



  1. A cute set of chickens and the perfect sentiment on the card Karen. Loving the pretty papers you used to cut the chicks from, and the fabulous chicken netting backgrounds. What is the brand of the dies? (You don't mention it in your post)

    1. hi Maxine: I didn't mention the brand of these dies because I don't know. They don't have their original packaging and all those tiny pieces are floating around in a small baggie. Sorry. They really could be cut by hand. The shape(s) is/are pretty straight forward. I do have another cute chicken set from Stampin' Up that I hope to use soon as well. I love the country chickens. Thanks for your comment(s).
