SUO164- Hey, Chick! Sneak Peek for SAB

Hi Friends!   

It’s time for the SUO164  “Circles or Ovals or Squares, Oh My!” Challenge at SU-Only Challenges!  I decided to take a break from Christmas cards and give you a sneak peek of a fun new Sale-A- Bration stamp set, Hey, Chick with a fun Mixed Media card :-)
Staring January 4, 2017  through March 31, 2017– for every $50 in purchases (not including sales tax or shipping), you can select one of the SAB items for free and Hey,Chick is so cute, I could not resist!! Those chickens look so frazzled, just like our lives are at times and I love the sweet sentiments as well :-)

I am also linking this card to the Simon Says Monday “Party Time” Challenge- if you have not had a chance to stop by the SU-Only Challenge site to check out the rest of the Design Team projects  or the Simon Says Challenge site, I hope you will do so- spectacular inspiration from all!

To create this card:

Ink the Hey, Chick images with Stampin’ Archival Basic Black Ink and stamp onto Whisper White cardstock.

Die cut the images with Circle Framelits™ (also die cutting two circles for each image from black cardstock).

Color the stamped chicken images with the new Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Pencils (yes, you read that correctly, the new Occasions Mini will have watercolor pencils in colors to match sixteen of the exclusive SU! Colors- yea!!) along with Stampin’ Write Markers.

Once you are satisfied with the coloring of the images, use Clear Wink of Stella to add shimmer to the chickens (I added it to their head areas :-)).  A chick has to have some shimmer, right? 

Layer the die cut black circles behind the images and set aside.

Emboss a piece of Whisper White cardstock with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, trim and mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock, trim and mount onto the Whisper White card base.

Adhere a strip of the Serene Scenery DSP Pack paper onto Basic Black cardstock and mount into the card front.

Heat emboss the sentiments from Hey, Chick with white embossing powder onto Basic Black cardstock creating the fish tail banners either by hand or using the retired Hexagon Punch (you can also use a square punch).

Mount the chick images and sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals® (I did adhere the far left chick directly to the card front) and add a bit of Clear Wink of Stella® to the chickens to finish off the card,

Mount the chick images and sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals and add a bit of Clear Wink of Stella®

Great card! Thanks for sharing. I think I will CASE it for my mom who just moved to assisted living and is having a tough time with it.
