Hey, Chick!

Hi Friends!

I am sharing another quick card this morning using the retired Hey, Chick stamp set from Stampin’ Up!

I have a personal goal to try to create a card for each of the over 800 sketches at Splitcoaststampers and this card uses the SC796 Sketch for the layout.

I hope you have had the chance to check out the above challenge sites,  wonderful inspiration from all!

To create this card:

De-static a piece of white cardstock with an embossing powder tool, ink the chicken images from Hey, Chick with a black archival ink (leaving plenty of space for the circle die cuts), apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.

Once the embossing has cooled, watercolor the images with water-based markers and fussy cut the crazy haired chicken, set aside.

Die cut the two chicken images using a set of stitched circle dies and die cut another circle for mounting the crazy haired image.

Emboss a piece of white cardstock with a woodgrain embossing folder, trim and mount onto black cardstock, trim and mount onto a white card base.

De-static scrap pieces of black cardstock with an embossing powder tool, ink the sentiments from Hey, Chick using Versamark™ ink, apply white embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.

Adhere the circles onto the card front, the top circle directly, the second circle with one layer of dimensional foam (or chipboard) and the third circle with two layers of chipboard.

Add the sentiments with chipboard along with the fussy cut chicken.

Use a clear glitter pen to add shimmer to the purple hair and the red combs to finish off the card.

Great to see this set again - it was a great favourite - wow what a challenge you’ve set yourself - I may have to pop over to SCS and have a look myself - what would I do with all those cards though? Thanks for joining us at SUOnly challenge this week.
