Chickie Couture #14



Happy St. Patrick's Day! Popping in to share my latest installment of Chickie Couture for DeNami Design. If you've been following my Chickie Couture Feature, you've seen Chickie dressed up in all kinds of different outfits, doing all kinds of fun activities. Well...let's just take a little lookie-loo at how Chickie celebrates St. Patrick's Day:


In honor of this super festive holiday, Leprechaun Chickie is sliding down a rainbow into a pot o' gold (gold sequins, that is) while shamrocks are falling from the sky! I wouldn't mind giving this little rainbow slide a try...how about you?!?!

To make the rainbow I cut a one inch strip of white cardstock. Then, I cut thin strips of cardstock (each measuring about 3/16") in red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple. I ran my tape runner over the white strip of cardstock, covering it completely, and then adhered the colored strips lining them up side by side. To finish it off, I trimmed off any excess white cardstock.

The pot o' gold is actually the H82 Medium Round Bowl stamped onto charcoal cardstock and cut out. I adhered it to the end of the rainbow with foam tape. Then, I squeezed some Crystal Lacquer onto the area above the "pot" and added the gold sequins.

Chickie was fussy cut and his legs were stamped separately so I could angle them upwards to give him a sliding effect. I hand drew his leprechaun hat and paper pieced the green band and glittery buckle.

What do you think?!?! I hope you like my Chickie Couture creation for today!

I found DeNami's "chickies" only recently and I ordered quite a few last week. I now have 7 chickies! I love these little fellows and intend to collect them all. In the meantime there are so many other DeNami stamps I want... I LOVE the Rainbow Slide. That was just a wonderful idea! And chickie looks so handsome in his hat. Thanks for such a cute card idea.

I love the Irish Chickie - he is so cute and you did a great job with the rainbow and pot of gold - My granddaughter looked at it with me and she wished she could slide into a pot of gold too! Thanks for sharing

I love your chickie couture and you never fail to make the most amazing cards. This is no exception. Love the rainbow and the pot of gold. Using those gold sequins was genius. Great card.

Chickie is so sweet in his leprechaun hat. Thanks for the idea on making a rainbow!

I had a few Paddy Day cards that I knew would be a few days late because I was giving them in person, so I tucked away the ones I originally made and made ones like yours. My daughter was so tickled! She's 35 y/o and she squealed like a little girl. She's always been fascinated by rainbows but was really taken by the "Chickie". Thanks so much for the wonderful idea.
