If you don’t have the Hey Chick stamp set, you can order it now! The dies that go with these stamp sets are hard to resist and super cute! You can order the stamp set and dies separately (if you already own the stamp set) or purchase the bundle and save 10%!  Stampin' Up!

Beautiful You Free Standing Triple Panel Card Created by Cindy Hall

Cindy used the Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to emboss the side panels.  She also did the Paper Piecing Technique for the dress and umbrella.  I love the way she used the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper to stamp the image a second time then fussy cut the dress and adhered it on top of the center panel. Such a fun technique to give a “designer” look to the dress!

Paper Piecing Chickens

I have a dear friend, Laura, who has some chickens.  She turned her dog house into their coup and it is so funny how every night at dusk they go up the plank and to go to bed for the night.  When I saw the Hey, Chick Stamp Set in the Sale-A-Bration catalog I knew I would use it to make her birthday card. My inspiration for the technique on my card came from a chicken pin cushion a member of my downline made. You know how I love to make my cards coordinate so…paper piecing to the rescue!  Here’s my card.

Stampin' Up! Hey Chick paper piercing birthday card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

And here’s the fabric chicken Margie made.


I found some paper that looked like fabric from the Warmth & Cheer Designer Series Paper Stack (retired from the Holiday catalog) to do the paper piecing technique.  This technique is really not hard to do. You simply stamp your image twice…once on cardstock and once on the DSP.  I used Archival Black Ink to stamp my images. I used the Stamp-a-ma-jig to position my chicken on top.

I wanted to add some dimension to my chickens so I used some Cherry Cobbler and Delightful Dijon ink and a blender pen to highlight and color on top of the DSP. I saw another demonstrator, Kathryn Ruddick, do this. It really makes it pop from the background.


Then I used my paper snips to cut out the chicken.  You don’t have to worry about fussy cutting around the legs or beak as they are already stamped on the cardstock.  Adhere on top of the cardstock image.

I used the Aqua Painter with a little Crumb Cake ink to wash along the bottom. I stamped my sentiment on Cherry Cobbler card stock with black ink.  I cut the tips off a toothpick for the sign and attached with glue dots and dimensionals. I decided I needed to stamp and cut out another wing to make it appear like the chicken was holding the sign.


I really like this technique. It was fun to do and I am happy with how it turned out.  I know you appreciate all the details so here’s the dimensions for this card..

Card base :Cherry Cobbler  5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4.

Layer 1: Whisper White 3 x 5

Layer 2: Cherry Cobbler 2 7/8 x 4 3/8

Stamped Layer: 2 3/4 x 4 1/4

The sentiment is cut out using the Bunch of Banners Framelits.
