Just Chicken In
Just Chicken In
I was so excited to participate in this years Stamptember. I had a fun time creating this farm themed card with the stamp set that Simon Says Stamp and Whimsy Stamps collaborated on. Just Chicken In. I paired it with a few extra Whimsy products and I absolutely loved the outcome.
I decided to create an A2 sized card measuring 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches. I inked some clouds on my panel using the cut out from Whimsy’s Grass and Cloud edger die. I used one of my favorite blues Simon Says Stamp Audrey Blue Dye Ink, its such a beautiful blue. My next step was to die cut Whimsy’s Wonky Window 4 Die out of white cardstock. I then took a piece of wood grain card stock and inked it with Vintage Photo. Once again I die cut the Wonky Window 4 Die, this time only using the third panel which I inlayed at the bottom of the card. For the actual frame I used foam strips to add some dimension.
To stamp the chicken images from the Just Chicken In Stamp Set I used Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink. I also stamped the pumpkins from Whimsy’s Fill a Wagon Stamp set, I did have to alter them so I was able to tuck them in behind the hay. I coloured all my images using Ohuhu Alcohol Markers and added little eyes to the birds, I think they are so cute. The hay and ladder I die cut from Whimsy’s Chicken Coop Die Set.
For the sentiment I wanted it to look like a sign so I stamped it and used Whimsy’s Simple Sentiment Strip Dies. These dies are so awesome I just used white card stock and an extra piece of wood grain, then used some black twine for the back of my sign. I glued and used foam tape to adhere all my images, then added some eggshell pearls. This was such a fun card to create these little chickens can be used for so many occasions.
