Welcome to today’s project featuring THE most popular stamp set in the Sale-A-Bration 2017 brochure, Hey, Chick! I took the card from the brochure and changed it up a bit.
To start with, I embossed the Pool Party cardstock with the large Polka Dots.
Then, after rubbing the Black cardstock with an Embossing Buddy to remove all the static, I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink so that I could heat emboss white powder on top. Now, take a look- I stamped the sentiment 3 times. See how differently each image looks? The first one was the bottom one. It was just inked up. The top one was the last and I think it came out the best. So I heat embossed all three and picked the best one for the card. I just threw the extra’s into the stamp case to use for a different project someday.
Next, I decided to color the image with Blender Pens and my ink pad. If you’ve never done this before- it’s AWESOME. Basically, you squeeze the ink pad so that the ink gets onto the lid of the ink. Then just take your marker and swirl it around in the ink. As you color your image, the ink will get lighter and lighter. To get the remainder of the ink off, just rub it on scrap paper until it’s clear.
The last bit of coloring I did was to go around the edge of the chicken with barely any ink on it at all. I also made it look like he/she was standing on a surface as opposed to just floating in mid air. I like to do this to give the images some more definition.
Once I had decided where to put the sentiment, I realized that because I used the foam Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop the chicken up and off the card, I needed to do it with part of the sentiment. So, I put a dimensional on one side and regular adhesive on the other. This was so that the cardstock that was hanging off the edge of the chicken didn’t fall flat. It was all the same height.
These are the supplies I used:
In this class, you will make 3 cards, 2 of each design (*PLUS* the $21 stamp set is included).
This class will also include a pdf tutorials with step by step directions for each project and color pictures so you can re-create it!
