Paper Craft Crew Challenge 232 - Hey Chick!

Why did the chicken cross the road?  To say "Hey, Chick!" Sorry.  I just couldn't resist!  I had so much fun making my card for this week's Paper Craft Crew Challenge.using the Hey Chick stamp set.  I also used it for one of my Terrific Techies Projects last night so they could practice using the new Watercolor Pencils. We all agreed that we love all the chicks!  And what makes this set even better is that I got it for FREE since it is a Sale-A-Bration stamp set!  

I started my card by stamping my chicks with StazOn onto a piece of 2 1/4 x 3 3/4 inch piece of Shimmery White cardstock.  I did let it sit for just a minute to make sure it would not smear.  I think used the Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Early Espresso, Pumpkin Pie and Real Red Watercolor Pencils along with a Blender Pen to color my chicks.  

I then created my "chicken wire" paper using a 4 x 5 1/4 inch piece of Crushed Curry cardstock, Early Espresso Ink and the Hexagons Dynamic TIEF.  This is such a cool and easy technique.  I just inked the top side of the embossing folder direct to paper style, placed my cardstock in the folder and ran it through the Big Shot with just the bottom piece of my platform and one cutting pad.  Then you just rinse off the embossing folder and let it air dry on a paper towel.  SO easy!

Next I punched a small hole in the top corner of my Shimmery White cardstock, ran my Crushed Curry Baker's Twine thorough it and tied a small piece of Burlap Ribbon into the Baker's Twine.  

At this point I attached my Shimmery White piece onto a 2 3/4 x 4 1/4 inch piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock.  After looking at it for a bit I decided to use the "Hey Chick" greeting stamped with Early Espresso then punched out with the Classic Label Punch.  I stapled it onto my Shimmery White piece.

Now it was time to assemble my card.  I attached my Crushed Curry chicken wire piece to my Whisper White Thick cardbase (cut 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and scored at 4 1/4) with Fast Fuse, then attached the Bermuda Bay piece with Stampin' Dimensionals.  And that was it!  Not a difficult card at all, just too a bit of time to do the water coloring.

So, now it's your turn!  Grab your favorite stamp set or one you have used yet and use this week's sketch to inspire you!  Then share it with us on the Paper Craft Crew page!  We want to see what you are making!
