Sale-A-Bration Gray Hey Chick Card

Stampin Up - Hey Chick Stamp Set
Stampin Up - Hey Chick
This week I am featuring the Hey Chick stamp set for my blog projects. The Hey Chick stamp set is FREE with any $50 purchase during Sale-A-Bration. The project I am sharing today is a quick & simple card. After I stamped my chick I thought of using the Woodgrain embossing folder and Smoky Slate cardstock to mimic him standing in front of an aged barn door.

Want to make this card? Here are the steps:
1.       Score a piece of 8.5” x 11” Smoky Slate cardstock on the 8.5” side at 4.25” and then score on the 11” side at 5.5” to get two card bases. Set one card base aside for another card.
2.       Cut a piece of Basic Gray cardstock 3 7/8” by 5 1/8”
3.       Cut a piece of Smoky Slate cardstock 3 3/4” by 5”
4.       Stamp the chick in Basic Gray Archival ink on Watercolor paper
5.       Add some color to the chick with Smoky Slate ink and an Aquapainter. I focused on his head, wing, tail, and a bit on his left side.
6.       Once the paper is dry add a few pops of color with your Calypso Coral marker on his feet, beak, and head.
7.       Stamp the hey chick sentiment in Basic Gray ink then punch out with the Classic Label punch
8.       Run the Smoky Slate cardstock through the Big Shot with the Woodgrain embossing folder then add some Basic Gray ink with a sponge
9.       Using a circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies cut out the chick image with the Big Shot
10.   Adhere your layers. Pop the chick up on four Stampin Dimensionals
