Cluck, cluck…what’s up? It’s the Clucky Chickens stamps and dies! New for spring, these chickens come with all their cute accessories like the hen house, basket, crate with hay, chicks, eggs and more. This stamp set can make all sorts of cards including cards for birthdays. My 5″ X 7″ card features pattern papers from the Classic Sunburst paper pack and the Critter Country paper pack for the background.
To make this 5″ X 7″ card, I attached the pattern papers to create a vibrant background and stamped the birthday phrase at the bottom, in the white space. Next, I stamped the cute images from the set and cut them out using the coordinating dies. I colored the images using the following Copic Sketch Marker colors:
- Chickens: E53, E50, YR68, R29, R17
- Hen house: Y38, Y19, E55, E59, E49, 100, C9, C7, C5
- Chicks: Y38, Y18
- Crate with hay: E57, E55, E53, E50, E49
- Basket: B04, B02, B00, Y19, Y15, Y08, E53, E50
- Shadow color: W5
I don’t love a white border around my cut images so I generally color the borders using a shadow color such as W5. It keeps the attention on the image instead of the border when creating a scene like this one.
I attached all of the items to the card front. The hen house, crate with hay and three of the chickens were attached with foam tabs, making them stand out a bit. It gives more dimension to the scene. I added one chicken inside the house. There’s a die in the set that cuts out the door opening making this super easy to do! I like that this card has more masculine colors in the background, making the white chickens really pop off the page. It would be a great card for males as well. You can shop these items at Sunny Studio Stamps.
