Handmade Flowers- Vintage Stamping Challenge

Hello Friends,
Time for the new Vintage Stamping Challenge blog  challenge for the month of April
This month's theme is:
Add a handmade flower to your project.  Your project also needs to have  some stamping.
The challenge is sponsored by Flonzcraft Stamps!

I made a crocheted flower for a fun spring inspired card.  I added a super cute little chicken stamp from Flonzcraft.

CS: Barely Banana, Pea Pizzazz, and Strawberry Slush - Stampin' Up
DP: Stampin' Up
Leaves Die Cut - Sizzix
Dimensional Adhesive
White Crochet thread and crochet hook


  • Make a card from Strawberry Slush CS
  • Add a layer of Pear Pizzazz CS and DP
  • Die cut Leaves from DP and add to card

  •  Crochet flower using white crochet thread size 10 with a size 1 hook  ( I used a pattern from the book "Flower Bouquet" by Suzann Thompson; Lark Books
  • Glue the flower to the card 
  • Add a pearl to the center of flower

  • Stamp Cute Chicken with Stazon ink on Barely Banana CS and fussy cut
  • Color Chicken with markers
  • Add Chicken to  card with dimensional adhesive
  • Stamp letters and cut or punch out
  • Add letters using dimensional adhesive

Totally cute Chicken!  This card would be great for a baby, Spring, even to just to say hello to a friend.  Let's see what you can come up with for the Handmade flower Challenge!  Hope you have fun with the theme!  

See you soon!
