Day 2 -My Craft Spot Stamp Release ~Chicken Soup?

Hi everyone, I'm so glad you are here. Welcome to day 2 of the Stamp Release Party for My Craft Spot!
Remember each day, there will be prizes at My Craft Spot, then on Saturday we'll have a design team Stamp Release Party Blog Hop with prizes at each blog along the way! 
Join us everyday this week!!
Today's sneak peek is a super fun phrase stamp set,"Cute Critters", designed by Kimberly. This stamp set is so such a delight, you'll reach for it time and time again.

For my card I choose the sentiment "When life gives you chicken, make soup!" It goes perfect for a get well card.
I've have these cute chickens from Lettering Delights called Funky Chicken graphic set. I've had it for years and this is the first time using them.... it's about time right! I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the images.

I used crystal effects in various places on the two chickens and soup bowl as well as the soup steam.
A close up of the banner, with 3 dots made using crystal effects. Added some burlap to my card and love this look!
The crinkle ribbon I used is named Caribbean, the twine is named Twisted Teal (one of My Craft Spots new twine colors). These are both available today in the My Craft Spot shop -HERE.
I folded the ribbon in half (used my  ATG tape to keep it folded.) The bow is not folded.  My trick for the twine is to lay it on top of the folded part of the ribbon, not the bow.  I adhered the twine with a small dot of hot glue (on both sides of the bow) as in the photo below.  When the bow lays down you can not see the glue dot. Then I made a bow using the twine then hot glued it on top of the ribbon bow.  I hope this makes since, but for me this was the look that I was going for.
You'll want to see more project using the new Cute Critters stamp set so head over to My Craft Spot to see the fun projects made by Kimberly and her design team, also remember to leave a comment on Kimberly's blog (My Craft Spot) today for your chance to win the Birthday Wises stamp set, click -HERE for My Craft Spot.

Remember to join us tomorrow for day 3 of the stamp release party when we reveal the next stamp set and metal die (oh, can I say that {wink}).
The new stamp sets and metal dies will be available for purchase on Saturday April 27th
