Hey Chick, Friendship Card, Thinking of You Card, 2021 Stampin' Up! Spring Catalog

Stampin' Up! brought back the "Hey Chick" stamp set and matching dies. I still had my set. I wasn't surprised, I have tons of retired sets here (which are slowly getting put in my web store so I can sell them and make room for the new stuff).  I don't plan on buying the dies because I just placed an order last week and just can't justify sending in another order for only the dies which I think will retire along with the catalog.  SO I fussy cut the chicken out. Yup, I fussy cut it and I lived to tell about it!!! LOL Fussy cutting is not one of my favorite things but I have been known to do it. Here's proof! 

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock.  On top of that I took a piece of the Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Fine Art Floral" 12" x 12" package. There was a piece in the pack that was already cut so I trimmed it to 5-1/8" x 2-1/2".

I stamped the chicken from the "Hey, Chick" set using black Memento ink on Whisper White card stock.  I colored the chicken in using the light Daffodil Delight and the light and dark Cajun Craze Blends pens.  Then I fussy cut it out.

The ovals are Crumb Cake for the stitched one and Soft Suede for the scalloped one. I also cut the small scallop using the center of the larger scalloped Soft Suede piece.  

The words are from the set and were stamped using black Memento ink on a scrap piece of Whisper White card stock. I die cut them with the smallest stitched oval die. Then I taped all the ovals together. 

After taping the DSP to the front of the card, I taped the large ovals. I set the chicken in place using Dimensionals. The small ovals were also set in place using Dimensionals.

For the final touch I added some sequins for a little bling and color.  And that was it.

Thank you SO very much for taking your time today to see what I was up to,                                            Wanda
