In the Chicken Coop!

 I saw a version of this card on Pinterest and decided I just HAD to make my version of it.  I’m so enjoying these adorable little chicks!  The Hey Chick and Chick Dies (available as a bundle at 10% off) are only available until the end of May, so be sure to get your bundle before it’s too late!

I love this bundle so much, I actually, for the first time since I’ve been a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, used every single stamp in the set for this one project!

I used a piece of DSP from the In Good Taste collection.  It seemed perfect since it looked like distressed wood that would be found in a chicken coop.  I sponged the edges of the DSP with Soft Suede ink to give it a bit of a border so it wouldn’t get lost against the Crumb Cake card base.

The “upstairs tenant” was colored using a mixture of Stampin’ Blends – light and dark Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight and Cherry Cobbler.

The super fun “middle floor tenant” was colored using Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends.

The “first floor tenant” was colored using light and dark Crumb Cake and Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends.

The window frames around the chickens were made using the Layering Squares die set, and the fencing behind chicken is a die cut from the die set in Smoky Slate.

I embellished the bottom left corner of the card with three die cut eggs that were cut from Crumb Cake and the edges were sponged with Soft Suede.  The sign post is a die cut from the set (it also embosses), and the sentiment is inked in Memento Blackl

I tied a bit of linen thread into a know along the left side of the card for a bit more texture.

On the inside, I stamped the remaining three images in the set.  The egg was colored in Ivory Stampin’ Blends with Daffodil Delight feet, and the sentiments are stamped in Soft Suede.

I am so happy with this card, and I hope you enjoy it as well.  To see how the card was made, you can click on the video below.  NOTE:  if the video does not appear below, you can see it by clicking HERE.
