Here is the card I made for our mini blog hop:

I used the hen stamp, and stamped it normally and reverse stamped it too to make the hen and rooster. I omitted the "flap" under the chin to make the hen different from the rooster. I don't know if hens have those flaps or not, but I thought the hen looked more feminine without it =) I also colored the red on the hen's head with a lighter color then on the rooster. With the little chick in between the hen and rooster, I think they look like a cute little family =) For the sentiment, I used stamps from Lawn Fawn's "Plus One".

Be sure to comment here for your chance to win, before continuing the hop! The next person on this mini hop is the talented Isha =)

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

What a cute baby card. Omitting little details like the flap make a difference. Love how you 'played around' with the stamp set.

So cute! I love the green behind the adorable scene, it really makes the kraft pop! And I really love the detail that you stamped a rooster and a hen ;)

Marie / Legojenta said... [Reply]

I did a video showing how to reverse a stamp using a solid block stamp from Paper Smooches here:

You can also use the back side of a large, normal clear stamp like Chari shows here:
