Farm Chicks Blog Hop and Giveaway

Hello, "Peeps!"  Welcome to our Farm Chicks Blog Hop and Giveaway!  I have some wonderful samples to share with you today, all featuring projects made with our fabulous Farm Chicks Digital Art stamps and our Digital Chicken Farm papers.  Sandy released these wonderful new products about a month ago, and the design team fell in love with them.  So we put our heads together and decided it would be fun to host a little "hen party" here on the blog, and invite you to hop along for fun and prizes!

If you haven't seen the new Farm Chicks Digital Art Stamps, you don't know what you are missing.  This is such a great vintage stamp set that works beautifully for masculine and feminine projects alike.  It has awesome potential to be used as home decor, since chickens and roosters are once again all the rage.  And, it could make great place cards, party invites, table decor, and of!

The Digital Art Stamps Set has 40 "chick"  images and sentiments.  We think you will agree with us, these stamps are really something to "crow" about!


Our Chicken Farm paper is such a pretty shade of blue green...just like the beautiful Araucana Chicken eggs.  The paper appears to be deeply embossed, and prints beautifully on your home printer.


 Now, let's get to hopping!

I had a blast creating this rooster themed gift ensemble.  You can read how I layered the images and find a link to the tutorial for the gift box on my blog, Kathy by Design.

Darlene Pavlick had so much fun playing with these goodies that she created two cards, one for the hens and one for the roosters.  You can read all about them on her blog, Dar's Crafty Creations.

 Diane Hover used our Chicken Farm paper to make this sunny side up card.  She has all the details on her blog, Nellie's Nest.

 Elizabeth Lincoln's fancy fold card is Grade A Fresh!  Read all the details on her wonderful blog, Paper Pass Times.

Ginny Nemchack went a little French Country with this stylish card done primarily in black and white.  The images in this stamp set are so beautiful, you really don't have to color them unless you just want to.  Get all the details on Ginny's blog, Polly's Paper Studio.

Gloria Stengel created a clean and layered masculine card that really shows off the rooster stamp and the great texture you get when you add the chicken wire stamp.  You can read all about it on Gloria's blog, Scraps of Life.

Melody Clement used stitching and burlap to create the perfect nest for her pretty card.  You can see all the details on her blog, Paper Melody's.

Michele Kovack featured another rooster on a faux barn board and chicken wire background.  I love the bow treatment on this beautifully colored card.  See the details on Michele's Blog, Thoughts of a Card Making Scrapbooker.

Sheila Rumney captured the vintage vibe in this sweet and simple blue card. I just love the Mason jar filled with lace, don't you?  You can read about it on her blog, Sheila Rumney Design and Photography.
