Hi Crafty Friends,
It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Kelly Santi our challenge hostess for the month, continues to issue the challenges.
Apparently National Dance Like a Chicken Day was this week -and it encourages everyone to dance like a chicken! This day entertains with people flapping their arms and strutting chicken-like. Create a card with chicken(s) as the star! Dancing optional.
I have been wanting to play with Whimsy Stamps Slimline Chicken Coop die for months, but when I saw this challenge earlier in the year, I decided to wait until the challenge and make use of it then. This die can either be adhered to a slimline card like have have used it today or make a fun shaped card. The door on the left side of the card, can open but for this card I adhered it closed.
I was going to use a chicken themed stamp set from Whimsy Stamps, but then I remembered to Mama Elephant stamp sets ... Zodiac Roster and Little Chickie Agenda which were so cute that I decided to pull them out to use on this too.
I added grass to the lower portion of my slimline card using MFT Stamps Slimline Grassy Hillside Borders.
For the inside of my card I added two layers of grass using the MFT Stamps Slimline Grassy Hillside Border dies. I also added the chickens and chicks from the two Mama Elephant stamp sets.
For the sentiment, I used Karen Burniston's Mini Alphabet and Numbers die set to add the "Hey Chickie". I then added the "Just Chicken In ..." using the Zodiac Roster stamp set.
