Guest Designer Spotlight: Chickie Baby Cards with Nicky Meek

Hello! I'm Nicky Meek and I'm delighted to be guest designing for Sunny Studio Stamps again today and have had so much fun creating with the unapologetic ally adorable Chickie Baby stamp set. I have two cards for you today that feature the stamp set in completely different ways!

My first card also uses one of the dies from the Eyelet Lace Borders die setTo make this card I die cut one of the Eyelet Lace Border dies 12 times over from 3 different coloured card stocks. I adhered them to one another in layers then set them aside to dry. I took a panel of cardstock and ink blended the focal point using Distress Ink in Spun Sugar. I added in a few dots of white gel pen just to break it up a little.

I adhered the lace borders to the panel by backing them with foam tape, then popped it in my Misti and stamped the sentiment. This background was then applied to a 110lb white cardstock base.

Now for my Chickie Baby images. I stamped them all with Memento Ink in Rich Cocoa and coloured them with Copic markers, highlighted some points with a white gel pen then die cut. Each was backed with foam tape and applied. To make it just a little more girly and playful I added some Nuvo Crystal Drops amongst the chickies. Card complete!

My second card using Chickie Baby is a slimline card with finished dimensions of 8 1/2in x 3 1/2in and this allowed me more space to create a big scene.

I grabbed a panel of smooth white cardstock and ink blended the sky using Distress Oxide in Tumbled Glass. I applied the panel to the prepared cardstock base. I took a couple of other slimline panels and used a grass edge die from my stash to create 4 undulating hills. They were ink blended with Distress Oxide in Twisted Citron and areas darkened using Mowed Lawn (seemed appropriate!). The sentiment was stamped. These sections were all adhered down to the background panel which in turn was adhered to the 110lb white cardstock base.

The Chickie Baby images were again stamped with the Memento Ink in Rich Cocoa and coloured with Copic markers, highlighted with a white gel pen, die cut and adhered either directly or with foam tape to build depth. I dotted in patches of daises with a white gel pen and with that this card was also complete.

I hope you have been enjoying your purchases from the most recent Sunny Studio release and that I've provided you with some fun inspiration.
