Cluck, Cluck, Cluck!

Happy February 7th, everybody! Not that it's any kind of special holiday or anything, but we may as well enjoy life while we are here!

And speaking of enjoyment, I have been enjoying the heck out of the new Keep Chickens  set. Did you know that you can still save 15% on this and the other new releases until tomorrow, February 8th. So you'll want to hurry. If there are other goodies on your radar, you can save 10% on those by entering the code TJ10Ro at checkout. This code is good any time throughout the expiration!

If you haven't checked out this set yet, there are a whopping 13 stamps in it!! Chickens, roosters, chicks, eggs, and sentiments. Something for every occasion! I have had so much fun playing with these adorable stamps. I have used five of them on the card I have to share with you today!

To create this card, I started with a gray card base. To that, I added a piece of vellum that I dry embossed with a cute chicken-wire pattern. I used my cutting machine to cut out Happy Birthday in vinyl and attached that to the vellum, along with a little black jewel.

For the chicken panel, I did a little masking. Using my stamping tool, I stamped the chickens on the right and left and then added a mask to them. I then stamped the middle chicken and the chick. These were all done in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Using a grey ink, I randomly stamped the "cluck cluck" and then trimmed down the piece. I swiped the black ink across the top and bottom border to give it a little definition, and attached the panel with foam tape.

I opted to keep the card monotone so it could be used for a feminine or masculine birthday. The hardest part about making this card was deciding which of the adorable chickens to use! Here is the whole set.....see what I mean?

I absolutely love this set. Have I mentioned that? I love it! lol 

Hope you enjoyed the card today and are inspired to have some fun! Remember...

And the new releases are 15% off until TOMORROW (February 8th).

Til next time,
Keepin' it inky!
