A Simple Succulent Birthday & A Fun Chick!'s that for a title... made you wonder didn't it???

Well today I'm back with a couple of fun cards made using a combination of Deep Red Stamps and Xyron adhesives and a reminder to post your comments to be entered into the giveaway for the $25.00 Gift Certificate to Deep Red Stamps!

My first card is a pretty little watercolor card made using this fun Potted Plants trio.  I started off by watercoloring a bit of green, yellow and blue on a piece of watercolor paper.  Once dry I flicked a bit more blue and a touch of gold watercolor paint over the panel.  That panel was mounted onto a green card base using the Xyron Tape Runner.  

I then stamped and watercolored the plants; trimmed the image and mounted it onto a green mat the the card using the Tape Runner.  I stamped the sentiment in the corner for the finishing touch.

I made this card with my Mom in mind...which is why I colored the end chicken purple.  The sentiment explains it all.   

I started off by stamping the grey blue card base with the chicken wire stamp.  I then stamped and colored the hen trio on a scrap of cream cardstock.  The hens and frame were both die-cut using a stitched die and adhered to the card base using the Tape Runner.   I finished off the card by stamping the amusing sentiment.
