Hey Chick bundle using Bumblebee and Mossy Meadow cardstock

February 5, 2021

With all of the Hey Chick cards I have been seeing, I just had to play around with it myself. I just love the chick eggs! The Hey Chick bundle has some great dies, including chicken wire, a cornstalk with ears of corn, a henhouse, tree stump and a sign stake. It has so much fun stuff to play around with.

Card Recipe

  • Bumblebee cardstock 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″
  • Mossy Meadow Card Layer 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″
  • Bumblebee wood-tone DSP from the 2020-21 InColor 6×6 paper stack
  • Scrap of Mossy Meadow
  • Scrap of Daffodil Delight
  • Scrap of Cinnamon Cider
  • Scrap of Basic white
  • Stampin’ Blends: Dark Real Red, Dark Pumpkin Pie, Ivory and Light Soft Suede
  • Memento Tuxedo Black inkpad
  • Adhesive of choice – liquid glue or Stampin’ Seal
  • Dimensionals
  • Mossy Meadow Braided Linen Trim
  • Bone folder
  • Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine

Instructions

  • Use your bone folder along the folded edge of your card to make sure it has a nice crisp edge
  • Adhere the Mossy Meadow layer to the card base using your adhesive of choice. I prefer the Tombow liquid glue because it allows a few seconds to adjust the paper before it sticks.
  • Next, adhere the wood-tone Bumblebee DSP to the Mossy Meadow Layer.
  • Using your scrap of Basic White cardstock, stamp the chicken, eggs and the sentiment for the sign using the Memento Tuxedo Black inkpad.
  • Color in the egg feet with Dark Pumpkin Pie. I chose to leave the eggs themselves white.
  • To color the large chicken, I first colored the comb on the top of its head and the wattle under its chin with Dark Real Red and I colored its feet with Dark Pumpkin Pie.
  • Color in the body with Ivory first (or So Saffron) and then used Light Soft Suede to color in the feathers and to smooth out the coloring over the entire body.
  • Using the dies in the bundle, cut out the stamped pieces along with the chicken wire, tree stump, sign stake cornstalk and corn cobs using your Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine.
  • Cut out the sentiment “You’re a Good Egg” and glue it to the sign stake.
  • When you’re ready to adhere the pieces to the card – but before gluing anything down – I suggest that you first place the chicken at the top of your card to see where you want it to go. That will tell you where you need to place the tree stump. Otherwise, you might find the chicken hangs off the edge of your card and we don’t want that.
  • Once you know where you want to place your images, start by adhering the tree stump to the bottom of the card, either gluing it directly to the card as I did or popping it up on dimensionals.
  • Glue down the chicken wire directly to the card above the tree stump and stick the stake sign behind it at a slight angle.
  • Put dimensionals on the eggs and place the first one on top of the tree stump, then the other two at an angle so they look a little topsy turvy.
  • Place dimensionals on the chicken and place its back foot on the head of the egg on top so it looks as though it is looking down and ready to step off.
  • Adhere the cornstalk to the lower right and attach some corn cobs.
  • Last, wrap a double length of Mossy Meadow Braided Linen Trim around the card and tie a bow. This step is optional. The card looks super cute even without the trim.
