Be Inspired Challenge #60- Take Two


Today i'm sharing a card for The Alley Way Stamps Be Inspired Challenge #60. This is the LAST Be Inspired Challenge, instead of the challenge you can enter ANY new card in a special linkup on The Alley Way Stamps Blog for a chance to win a prize. This will start in January on the blog, look for this logo for the linkup:

Now on to my card (by the way you still have plenty of time to play along with this last challenge for your chance to win some stamps). This is the photo inspiration:

I got my inspiration from the Christmas tree and the colorful ornaments and packages. I imaged how it would be with some of those packages open. I started by stamping the chick from Chick Magnet. I stamped it again on a post it note, cut it out and placed it over the little chick. I did this again and again for each of the toys and presents. (i used a bunch of stamp sets to get all my toys and presents, the list is below!!)

Once i was done stamping and masking, i pulled out my distress markers and i colored it all up! Next i cut out along the top part of my images. Then i stamped the sentiment from Tickle Me Happy in the lower right corner. I was thinking this would be great for a kid to give to a grandparent as a Christmas thank you!

I found a neutral pattern paper and added it to a card base. Then i added the cut out image with foam dots along to the bottom of the card base, remember i just cut out the top part of the images.

Last stamped the little Santa hat from Bee Happy, i colored it up then cut it out. I added a little bit of Stickles to the white parts. Then i just added the hat to the little chick!

  1. Too cute, and unfortunately a pretty accurate representation of this place right now....

  2. Look at all that masking!!! Awesome colouring too. This is absolutely my living room right now, lol

  3. Tee hee...the little chick sitting in the midst of his stash of gifts is utterly adorable! Rather looks like my niece and nephew's collection from Christmas Day *grin*
