Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day, y’all! Hope the week is going well for you – and that you’re getting dug out of the snow if you were in the path of the Snowmaggedon!
I’ve got a cute card for you today using the brand new Hey Birthday Chick stamp set and the bundled Birthday Chick Dies! Take a look-see:
The color scheme for this one is from this week’s MFT Color Challenge.
And I’d say this little chick definitely qualifies for the Inspire.Create Theme challenge.
I started with a piece of Gray Granite plaid paper from the Neutrals 6″ x 6″ DSP (this is one of the NEW patterns that you’ll get when you join Stampin’ Up! during Sale-A-Bration – yes, it’s one of the 200 FREE sheets of DSP!!). I matted it on Basic Black for the card front.
I used the fun fence die in the new Birthday Chick Die set to cut two Basic White fence pieces – that I adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.
I cut a darker piece of Rococo Rose paper from the Oh So Ombre 6″ x 6″ DSP (FREE with a $50 purchase during Sale-A-Bration) using the next-to-largest Stitched So Sweetly rectangle die. I cut the same size from a piece of Basic Black.
Using the next-to-largest oval Stitched Shapes Dies, I cut a “window” from the black die cut and popped it onto the DSP die cut with Mini Black Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I stamped the sweet Hey Birthday Chick image in Tuxedo Black on Basic White. Then I stamped just the balloon on the lightest part of the Rococo Rose Oh So Ombre DSP (the pattered side). Using the die in Birthday Chick, I cut the image from the Whisper White panel. Then I fussy cut the Oh So Ombre balloon.
Using my Gray Granite Stampin’ Blends, I colored the chicken – and used my Petal Pink Blend for her head. I cheated the color challenge a smidge to color the beak and feet with my Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write Marker.
I adhered the die cut to the Rococo Rose panel – tucking it under the raised panel. I left the balloon “out” – using a Mini Black Stampin’ Dimensional to adhere it to the outside of the frame. I used Liquid Glue to adhere the fussy cut balloon in place. Finally, I cut a tiny little bow tie with the Birthday Chick die from a piece of the lightest Rococo Rose Oh So Ombre DSP and adhered it with Liquid Glue.
Using the fun sentiment die in the Birthday Chick die set, I cut the sentiment in Basic Black and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.
I added some Champagne Rhinestone Jewels here and there and the card front was done!
On the inside, I inked a second chicken from Hey Birthday Chick in Gray Granite, stamped it off once and stamped the middle of a Basic White panel. Then I added a sentiment from Hey Birthday Chick in Rococo Rose in the middle. Using stamped-off-once Rococo Rose, I added confetti.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Basic Black mat and into my Gray Granite card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!
My Basic White Medium Envelope got the chicken in full-strength Gray Granite and confetti in stamped-off-once Rococo Rose on the front…
…and more of the Rococo Rose Oh So Ombre DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! These little crazy chickens in the Hey Birthday Chick stamp set are so stinkin’ cute – and the fact that they ALSO have matching dies in the Birthday Chick set is just the icing on the cake! And…little fences! And that die cut sentiment is just wonderful!
I hope you like – and will add this one to your…barn! 😉
