Welcome to InKing Royalty’s February Blog Hop!
Today’s Blog Hop is filled with projects inspired by a Birthday Bliss theme. What fun! Stampin’ Up! catalogs are filled with fun, festive and beautiful ways to make birthdays special – and we are excited to share our creations with you today. We are also excited to welcome guest designer Michelle Last to our team’s blog hop this month. After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.
Ok so if you don’t know by now, I am a little twisted! I like birthdays (I quit counting a few years ago), I love cards and creating them, that having been said, this card might need some ‘splaining Lucy!
The Hey Chick stamp set that I used for this card, is free with every $50 purchase during sale-a-bration… yes FREE… and it may be one of my “all time” favorites. Of all the images in that stamp set, I love the “laced polish chicken” featured in this card the most (yep it is a real chicken) and of course the sentiment “hey chick!”
I needed to create a background that coordinated with the chicken and while I could have gone the traditional route and just added a lovely DSP or a fun embossed background, I chose the road less traveled – “the chicken scratch” road. I randomly stamped happy birthday all over the card base in the same color ink (tone on tone). Kinda made me think of a chicken pecking on the ground for scratch (chicken feed/food). For complete details or to purchase anything I used in the creation of my card, click on the card recipe or any of the images (at the end of the blog hop list) and don’t worry no chickens were harmed in the creation of this card or card recipe!
