Hey Chick for Freshly Made Sketches

img_1532-001The talented designers at Freshly Made Sketches have what I think is a very cute sketch this week.  I know I should be making holiday cards, but I really wanted to play with some of my new goodies from the upcoming Sale-a-bration Brochure.  This fun little set is called Hey, Chick.  I thought this goofy little chickie would be perfect to use with this sketch.  Although she will not be available until the brochure goes live January 4th, I still hope you will enjoy today’s card.  And I promise, I will be posting holiday cards for you very soon!


The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips
This finished card measures 4-1/4″ wide by 5-1/2″ tall when folded.

  • Easy peasy! I inked this crazy little gal in Basic Black Archival ink and stamped her three times.  I then punched out the images using the 1-1/2″, 1-3/8″, and 1-1/4″ punches.  Her feathers are a mix of Crushed Curry and Pumpkin Pie, while Smoky Slate was used to highlight her body.  Soft Sky adds a subtle shadow around her.  The image was inked a fourth time and stamped directly onto the card base.  She was colored the same way as before.
  • Speckles! One of my most often used stamps is the Speckles image from Gorgeous Grunge.  For this card, it was inked with Crushed Curry, and used to randomly stamp the lower part of the card. I repeated the process with Smoky Slate.  Of course, I masked off the chicken in the corner to prevent her from getting speckled in the process.
  • Hey, chick!  Every chick deserves a little bling, so I added a single Rhinestone to accent each chick.  I LOVE the way the rhinestones draw the eye right to the circles.

I had a blast creating this quick and easy, clean and simple card.  Since I have a few friends who would be perfect candidates for receiving this card, I  am sure I will be whipping out a couple more!
