Stampin’ Up Home To Roost

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  Hope everyone is having a wonderful week.

For the card I made for today I went out of my comfort zone.  I was actually pretty pleased with how it turned out.  I’m not really into chickens or farming, but I said I was going to feature a different Sal-A-Bration item each day this week.  We’re getting down to the wire for getting free items.  Here is my card for today.

After I was done, I saw the Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge #311 and thought that this might qualify.  Here is their sketch.

I started with a piece of the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper (FREE Sale-A-Bration item) and cut it into 1″ strips.  I adhered the DSP onto a Poppy Parade card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue so that I would have a little wiggle room to line the strips up.

I stamped the rooster from the Stampin’ Up Home To Roost Stamp Set (FREE Sale-A-Bration item) in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a small piece of Whisper White cardstock. I colored the rooster in using my Cajun Craze, Mango Melody, Poppy Parade, Pumpkin Pie and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.  Then using my Big Shot, I cut the image out with my Layering Ovals Framelits Dies.  I also cut out the scalloped oval that was just a little larger in Poppy Parade cardstock.  I adhered the artwork to the scalloped oval using Multipurpose Liquid Glue then to my card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the flower from the Stampin’ Up Colorful Seasons Stamp Set in Poppy Parade Ink.  I stamped the flowers 4 times without reinking to get the Ombre effect.  I cut the flowers out with my Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies and my Big Shot.  I adhered the flowers to the right side of the artwork using Glue Dots and Mini Stampn’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment from the Home To Roost stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a strip of Vellum paper and adhered it over the artwork using Glue Dots.  I adhered the card front to a Poppy Parade card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the grassy image from the Home To Roost stamp set in Old Olive Ink, stamping off twice, to a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink above the grass.  I adhered some more of the flowers I had stamped and cut out using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Poppy Parade card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the grass and the rooster from the Home To Roost stamp set on the front of the envelope in Old Olive and Tuxedo Black Memento Inks.  I adhered a piece of the Botanical Butterfly DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  This card used 2 of the FREE Sale-A-Bration items that are available with a $50 order.  Sale-A-Bration ends on Sunday, so don’t delay.  Happy Stamping!!
