Shake Your Tail Feathers

Hello and welcome! Today I’m sharing three fun cards featuring Honey Bee Stamps Spring Chicks Stamps and Dies, Eggcellent Sentiments, Spring Fling 6×6 Paper Pad and coordinating enamel dots. I fell in love with the rooster in this stamp set, the whole set is adorable, but that rooster is just too much cuteness! 

To get started I stamped the images I needed using Versafine Onyx Black Ink. 

I used a stamping tool because I knew I would need to do a lot of repeat stamping using watercolor paper. 

 I used Avery Elle Liquid Watercolors, Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens, and Derwent Inktense Pencils to color the images. Set aside to dry. Die-cut using coordinating dies. 

The first card I created is the “I’m Not Too Chicken” card, super simple. 

Stamp the nest onto a 4.24″ x 5.5″  #110 Neenah Classic Crest Solar White card base and color with Copic markers; E33, E35, E37. 

Create a mask for the nest using Simon Says Masking Paper, mask off. Add Distress Oxide Tumbled Glass and Twisted Citron ink directly on the card base. I repeated the ink blending on the inside of the card, it’s optional. 

Stamp the eggs on a piece of #80 Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock, color using gray Copics for shading, stamp sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black Ink.

Add 3D mounting foam to the chick, adhere over the nest, finish off with enamel dots. Stamp the sentiment onto a SSS Fog piece of cardstock that has been die-cut with the SSS sentiment strip. Finish off with coordinating enamel dots. 

The second card might be my favorite out of the three, Shake Your Tail Feathers.

Using a 4.25″ x 5.5″ #110 Neenah Classic Crest Solar White card base adhere patterned paper to cut the same size on cardbase. Stamp “shake” randomly onto one of two die-cut #80 cardstock panels with SSS Smoke Ink and die-cut a window. Add acetate to the back of the stamped panel, add 3D mounting foam making sure to leave no gaps between foam pieces, add sequins then cover with the second die-cut panel. You just formed your shaker. 

Add adhesive to the back of shaker and center on the card base. Adhere the rooster to the left of the window using 3D mounting foam. Stamp sentiment on remaining patterned paper using Versafine Onyx Black Ink, cut into pieces, add mounting foam to the back of each piece, then place on the card, cattywampus.

The “Feel Better Soon” card is super simple. Add patterned paper cut to size onto a 4.25″ x 5.5″ card base. Die-cut a second patterned using rectangle 4.25″ die then die-cut again with a circle die on the bottom right side. Add 3D mounting foam and adhere to the card base.

Add rooster to the card using 3D mounting foam, stamp the sentiment onto a SSS Fog piece of cardstock that has been die-cut with the SSS sentiment strip. Finish off with coordinating enamel dots. 

I have to say the Eggcellent Sentiment Stamp Set is a must with the Spring Chicks, so many sentiments, for so many different needs. Leave a comment below and let me know what you think. 

As always, thank you for joining me today.
