Hey, Chick for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Occasions & Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop

Amy's Inkin' Krew Hey Chick

 

This month, Amy’s Inkin’ Krew is bringing you projects from the new Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs.  Don’t you just love all of the new products?  I hope you’ll make sure and hop around to see what is new!  I’m sharing Hey, Chick, one of the FREE stamp sets you can earn during Sale-A-Bration.  

 

Chick

I started out using a scrap piece of paper to stamp all sorts of possibilities for these three images, and the umbrella from the Weather Together stamp set.  Once I decided on how I wanted it to look, I stamped each of the Hey, Chick images in Basic Gray onto a panel of Shimmery White Card Stock.  Then, I stamped the raindrops, also from Weather Together, in Basic Gray ink.  I wanted the umbrella to appear to be under the rooster’s wing, so, I made a mask of his wing with a post-it note.  Once I cut out the wing part, I adhered it over his real wing and then stamped the handle of the umbrella.

Next, I stamped the canopy of the umbrella in Basic Gray right above the handle onto my Shimmery White card stock. I also stamped the canopy onto a panel of Watermelon Wonder polka dot paper from the 2015-2017 In Color Paper Stacks and used the coordinating die to cut it out. This is called Paper Piecing.  Adds some interest, doesn’t it?  

My next step was to begin the coloring process on the rooster, the egg and the hen.  So, I pulled out my new Watercolor Pencils (SO FUN), and began to lightly blend each image.   I used Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Early Expresso and Basic Gray.

The sentiment, also from Hey Chick, was stamped with Versa Mark ink onto a panel of Basic Gray, sprinkled with White Emboss Powder and heat embossed.  I then cut it out with the small oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  

My card base is Watermelon Wonder. The next layer, from Carried Away DSP (also free during Sale-A-Bration), was adhered with glue.  The art panel was framed with Basic Gray card stock and then popped onto the front with dimensionals.  

 

Hey Chick

 

So, for the inside, I could not leave out this crazy image!  I am told by a team member that he is a Silkie breed rooster.  I looked it up on a website she suggested and found this picture of one called a Top Hat Special.  Crazy fun!!

 

A complete list of supplies and card stock cuts will be at the end of my post.

Hey, Chick Sneak Peek for the Happy Stampers

Hey Chick

I’m sharing a sneak peek of Hey, Chick from the upcoming Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-Bration catalog for our blog hop today!  And, Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!  My card is not your typical card for Thanksgiving, but I thought a whimsical thank you would be fun for a change.  What do you think? 

 

Hey, Chick

 

Here is our sketch, I made mine vertical instead of horizontal.  And, very CAS, too!  

 

Hey, Chick

I started by stamping the chicken image from Hey, Chick, in Tuxedo Black Memento ink onto a panel of Whisper White card stock.  I colored it in with my Stampin’ Write markers and die cut it with one of the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies. Then, I framed that panel with a Real Red scalloped circle from the Layering Circles Framelits Dies.  

 

Hey, Chick

 

Next, I stamped the sentiment in Versa Mark ink and sprinkled White Embossing Powder onto a Basic Black panel.  It was heat embossed and then die cut with a the banner die from the Gift Card Envelope and Trims Framelits Dies.  For the stick, I die cut a shape from the Everyday Jars Framelits Dies in Real Red.  I layered a panel of Pop of Pink DSP onto a panel of Basic Black and then wrapped a length of Burlap Ribbon around them before popping the panel onto the Real Red card stock base with dimensionals.

 

Hey, Chick

For the inside, I chose a sentiment from the All Things Thanks stamp set (available January 4th), and stamped it in Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  The little heart is a Real Red Enamel Shape. Once Sale-a-Bration begins, you can get Hey, Chick for free!  I think you will love this set.  Here is a look at both sets:

 

Hey, Chick

 

Now, on to the rest of the Hop, and thanks again for sharing your Thanksgiving with us!!
