As I said in my last post, I am a chicken lover! (I’ve been told the first step to recovery is admitting your addiction.) So it only stands to reason that I love this stamp set. If it has anything to do with chickens or roosters, it is for me! Especially vintage and antique roosters and chickens. Two former students got me started on collecting them a few years ago. Their names are Matt and Brooke, a brother and sister team. They were both in the same 8th grade class as my son. (Yes, I taught my own children in middle school and I tell them it was equally painful for me as it was for them.) 🙂 They gave me a set of three decorative plates with roosters on them. I hung them in my kitchen, and it has been downhill ever since. That was about 15 years ago, so that is a long time to collect a lot of chickens! My husbands famous words are, “Just what you need, another chicken!”
This chicken set is a Sale-a-braton set. With any $50.00 purchase in my online store, you can get it too.
Isn’t this sweet? I love these little guys, and I’ve created a video just for you so you can make a card just like this one. Hope you enjoy it!
Here are some other FREE Sale-a-bration items you can have when you spend $50.00 in my online store.
It is a cold and cloudy day today here in Colorado. A good day to stamp! So I thought I’d share a little of what I’ve been working on with you.
This card is made with a Sale-A-Bration set, and as far as I am concerned, it is a must have! Hey Chick is such a cute set. Being an avid chicken collector (I collect vintage and antique roosters), I was sure to get this set first.
I like this chicken because it sort of looks like my hair when I get out of bed in the morning. It is usually standing straight up on the left side, and this guys hair reminded me of…me! LOL! The only difference is my hair isn’t blue and my body isn’t yellow and I don’t have tail feathers. My husband would tell you otherwise because says I am always getting my tail feathers in a ruffle. 🙂
Here is a graphic of the other stamps in the set.
It is yours free with any $50.00 purchase from my online store. Or you can get one of the following other items.
When I made this card, I used a 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ piece of Soft Suede card stock for the base. The designer series paper is from the Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack. The striped piece measures 2 1/2″ x 5 ” and the dotted piece is 2 1/4″ x 4 1/4″. The top piece of Soft Suede card stock measures 2 1/4″ x 3 1/4″ and the Whisper White piece upon which I stamped measure 2″ x 3″. I added a piece of Whisper White card stock that measures 4″ x 5 1/4″ to the inside so that I could write a note of thanks in there for a special lady.
I hope you enjoyed your visit here today. It was short and I hope sweet! Until next time
