Cluck, cluck, cluck, cluck … I am totally enamoured with this stamp set “Hey Chick”. It is one of the stamp sets you can choose for free as part of Stampin’ Up!’s Sale-A-Bration promotion for every $90 you spend in one order.
I have chickens of my own, so it goes without saying that I would love this stamp set … however it wouldn’t matter if I didn’t own chickens … I would still love these expressive little images.
I cased a card from the Sale-A-Bration flyer to create this project … love the 3d effect of the little wings holding the sign made with a toothpick. I stamped and water coloured the two chickens onto some Shimmery White cardstock. For exact placement of the white chook standing on the brown chook, I utilised my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig!
I stamped the chickens again, cut out just the wings and attached them with Mini Glue Dots. The toothpick was slipped under and adhered with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. And the greeting was adhered over the toothpick with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
The background “chicken wire” texture is created by lightly inking the Hexagon Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder with Tip Top Taupe ink and then using it as a stamp to apply the design to the card (rather than actually embossing the card).
And the Chicken Wire “stamping” is continued on to the inside of the card as well, just a little bit in the corner.
We created this card at the first day back in 2017 at Christies Beach Creative Corner last Tuesday. My next day at Christies Beach is Tuesday 21st February … 10:00am to 12:00pm. Everyone is welcome! The ladies are very friendly and are happy to share their knowledge of a wide range of crafts from knitting, crocheting, beading and of course stamping and card making.
