Here at Stampendous we are all about Mothers. We know how hard being a mother can be, and how rewarding. We hope that you, and all your chicks, have a super happy Mother’s Day.
Craft together, laugh together, and just have a wonderful time!
If you’re up before the family, or just settling down with your second cup of coffee (or your second mimosa), here’s some fun with chicks to help you enjoy the day. Be sure to join us next week when we will be looking at our Sassy Silhouettes as they hit the City!
Going out into the world with the whole family can be such an adventure! Keeping track of your chicks, is always a challenge as well. With our Everyday Chicks and their handy cutting dies, you can celebrate the victory of getting everyone together for Mother’s Day or just getting out of the house in the morning! Everyday Chicks can do it all!
Check out a few cards by our own Fran Seiford showing the chicks in action. You can click on the picture to visit the project on our website with complete supply lists and instructions.
You’ll notice on these cards that our terrific chicks are designed especially to complement our Greetings Galore Perfectly Clear Stamps™ Set. This set of greetings has a clean, crisp font that goes perfectly with our fluffy chicks and provides a wonderful amount of versatility when used on its own or with any other stamps!
Our talented Design Team is playing with our chicks this week as well! Please flap on over to their blogs and give them some love.
Everyday Chicks are having fun at home today. It’s so easy to have the right number of kids, moms, dads, cousins, uncles, aunts, whatever you need for your special family when you play with our terrific chicks. Every occasion can include the whole gang!
The chicks are premium clear stamps with a set of coordinating dies right in the package. You can find them in your favorite store or on our website by clicking the picture below. You can see that the set comes with three sizes of chicks and a ton of everyday and special occasion accessories. The dies are all attached in one big piece so that you can easily clip them apart for use. They do not line up with the stamps to cut in a big group, because every stamp is separate to save on paper. There are 25 stamps, each with its own die. The accessories die cut right on the edge of the image, but the chicks have a little space around them so they look fluffy. You can color outside the lines on your chicks to get that fluffy, feathery look.
Our very own Fran Seiford has made some super fun cards featuring our chicks. Click on each one to be taken to the project page on our website for step by step instructions and a full supply list.
