Here’s a CASology cue bound to have you darting to your craft room and leaping into action:
How will you interpret it?
I was inspired by the idea of a ‘Spring Chicken’, particularly in reference to celebrating an ‘ageless’ birthday. Aren’t we all?? This sent me on a spring chicken reconnaissance, which ended when I came across these little guys. Spring Chicken Cake Pops by Bakerella. Aren’t they too cute??
I am hoping that my paper version is my salvation, as I can’t claim any success in the real cake pop department!
So, here goes…
I am including my spring chicken cake pop card ‘recipe’, for those so inclined (a little different to Bakerella’s, and not as delicious, however…). They are easy to replicate:
- Body – 1 1/4 ” circle punch from Stampin’ Up!, which I used as a stencil, and sponged the body in yellow.
- Wings and feet – small outline heart stamp from Lawn Fawn’s ‘Life is Good’ stamp-set. Coloured in yellow and orange, respectively.
- Flower: ‘splodge’ (my name for it) stamp from Paper Smooches’ Free Spirits’ set. Clear embossed for added shine, and a teeny blue rhinestone in the centre for a touch of bling.
- Beak, eyes, hair & spring: hand-drawn.
- Grass – a grass stamp from a fabulously vintage Stampin’ Up set called ‘Roughing It’ (from 1998!!)
- Sentiment – Brother P-touch label maker.
While I was on a roll, I stamped the inside too:
I created my ‘butterfly’ using a couple of sweet heart stamps and sentiment from Waffle Flower’s ever versatile ‘Bowtiful’ stamp set.
A bit of a mixed bag, isn’t it? However, it was satisfying to stretch my stamps to create this card.
