Stampin' Up! Hey Chick! Card

 Hi!  I'm so excited to share today's card with you.  It was inspired by a challenge over at Case this Sketch, and uses one of my all time favorite stamp sets!  

Hey, Chick! is a stamp set that was introduced during Sale-A-Bration 2017 and quickly became a favorite.  It has definitely been my favorite!  There's a new set in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog that is bringing back those same chickens, in different images.  Sadly, I don't have that set yet, but I do still have my Hey, Chick! set!  :)  It pairs wonderfully with the All Wired Up background stamp from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. 

The first step to making this card is to add color to the background (which is just a piece of Whisper (or Basic) White Cardstock.  I used Stampin' Up!'s new Blending Brushes for this step.  Once there was enough color added, I stamped the All Wired Up in Basic Gray.  For the large background stamps, I find it easiest to use the stamparatus.  

This was my first time to stamp on ribbon.  The first attempt didn't go so well.  It looked great when I stamped it, but the next morning it had bled pretty bad.  I attempted to remedy the issue by stamping in Memento ink, then covering the 'hey, chick!' in Clear Embossing Powder and setting it with the Heat Tool.  BOOM!  Problem solved!  😀

After coloring the chicken with Stampin' Write Markers, I attached it to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.  The card front was also attached with Stampin' Dimensionals.  (The ribbon was attached with Mini Glue Dots.)


Of course, the chick had to make an appearance inside the card - and on the front of the envelope!

I hope you enjoyed this card as much as I enjoyed making it.  It makes me smile every time I see it!
