Happy Hump Day! Hey, you have to find something to celebrate everyday, right?
I’ve got a fun little project today. The stamp in this project comes out of that super cute Stampin’ Up! set Spooky Bingo Bits. This set is so full of stamps, you got to get it.
I used the little tree in full image and just part of the image here. Check it out in my tutorial below.
Here are a few Stampin’ Up Reminders before I start the project.

Die Cut the largest scallop square on the Scallop Square Duo Die using the Big Shot Machine and Whisper White card stock.
Sponged Daffodil Delight ink starting in the middle of the square working out.
Sponged Pretty in Pink ink on leaving a circle in the middle of Daffodil Delight ink showing.
Sponged Primrose Petals ink around the edge of the card stock (top, right and left sides).
Sponged Certainly Celery at the bottom of the card stock.
Using a Basic Black Marker (brush end), made the top half of a “C” from the top of the grass, added the line across the top.
Colored the cliff in with the Basic Black marker.
Stamped the tree using Stazon Jet Black ink.
Added Certainly Celery marker to the top of the cliff for grass.
Sponged Old Olive ink at the bottom of the grass.
Masked the grass using a post it note. Stamped the tree 3 times so the branches are above the mask.
Removed the mask and add Certainly Celery marker to the branches of the tree and bushes and then added some white gel pen highlights to the tree.
Die cut a Primrose Petal Large Scallop Square using the Big Shot Machine.
Added 2 Old Olive panels and 2 Basic Black panels along with the scallop squares. Also added 4 silver brads and white gel pen dots around the largest Basic Black panel. Here is the finished card measuring 5.5″ square.
Before I close today, I want to share with you a couple of pics of one of my girls, Bunny. That’s right, Bunny has grown a beard. In chick talk it is a muff. How cute is that? She is really turning out to be a stunner and look how big she is at 11 weeks old. I guess you have to be a chicken to be considered a cute chick if you have a beard, lol.
I imagine Buffy below saying “Hey do you have to grow a beard to get a little photo time?”
May your day bring nothing but smiles to your face.
Until my next post. . . . .
