Good morning! Happy Valentine’s Day – are there romantic plans in your future? And – it’s ALSO a three-day weekend! I don’t know about y’all – but…three day weekends – when it’s cold and yucky outside – just aren’t that exciting! There should be more of them later in Spring when the weather is pretty and we WANT to be outside doing things. I think we need to combine chocolate (Valentine’s Day) with an acknowledgment that it’s nasty outside – and…snuggle down with some hot chocolate, a warm dog (or kitty!) and a good book!! Who’s with me?
If you were able to spend some of your long weekend with me on my Facebook Live video last night, I appreciate it! If not, here’s the replay on YouTube!
For this card, I used the undeniably adorable Hey Chick stamp set and bundled Chick Dies – with a little 2020-2022 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP. Take a look-see:
The layout for this card comes from this week’s Global Design Project sketch.
I started by matting a piece of Bumble Bee paper from the 2020-2022 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP on Old Olive for the card front.
Next, I used the die in the Chick Dies to cut two chicken-wire die cuts. I trimmed one down a bit and then adhered them to the card front with Liquid Glue. Tip: I like the ends of things to “fall” off the edge of the card front a little – so…I placed the card front onto my card base (not adhered) so that I could be sure it hung over just enough – but NOT past the edges of the card base.
Then I started cutting barn-yard shapes using the Chick Dies. From Soft Suede, I cut a chicken coop and a sign. Mossy Meadow for four corn stalks, Old Olive for four corn husks, and Bumble Bee for four corn cobs.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the husks to the cobs and then to the stalks. And I stamped the Hey Chick sentiment in Tuxedo Black onto the sign.
I used short little pieces of 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim to make corn “silks”. This was my friend Debbie Lindauer’s idea (yes – I made this card while we were all playing and crafting on my Zoom The Craftroom on Thursday evening – so it was kind of a card-by-committee!). I adhered the little pieces of trim to the back of each corn cob and then pulled it apart to make it all corn-silky! 😉
I adhered the coop and three stalks to the Basic White oval with Liquid Glue.
On a piece of Basic White, I stamped the Hey Chick crazy-hair chick in Tuxedo Black. I colored her hair, tail feathers, legs and beak with my Flirty Flamingo and Bumble Bee Stampin’ Write Markers. Her body is Dark So Saffron Stampin’ Blend. Then I cut her out with the matching die in the Chick Dies.
I popped my chick on with Stampin’ Dimensionals, then tucked the final corn stalk in behind her. Finally, with more Dimensionals and a little Liquid Glue, I popped the sign in place – and the card front was done!
On the inside, I added a second Hey Chick sentiment in Tuxedo Black on a Basic White panel. The crazy hair chick peeks in from the corner!
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to an Old Olive mat and into my Mossy Meadow card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!
My Basic White Medium Envelope got miss crazy hair on the front…
…and more of the Bumble Bee 2020-2022 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! Seriously – how cute is this bundle?? I don’t know what I love more – the crazy chickens in the Hey Chick stamp set or the so-uber-fun die cuts in the Chick Dies?!? How about you??
No matter what you like more – the stamp set and dies are limited time – so…if you love them like I do – get them sooner rather than later, okay?
I hope you like!
