Shopping Our Stash #168 - Chicken

Did you know that September is Chicken Month??? According to to Holiday Insights it is!!! 

In honour of chicken month, this week the crew at SHOPPING OUR STASH would like you to use a chicken OR any bird on your project. 

I think Leslie had me (and my LOVE of birds....NOT) in mind when she created this challenge...at first I thought....SHITE...I got rid of my one and only bird set!! Turns out I have not only one but TWO Paper Smooches stamp sets that have chickens in them! LOL

I got a really cool card in the mail from my crafty friend Jenn Tinline that just also happened to feature a bird...I loved the layout of the card, the card base is a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4" piece of cardstock (the pink on Jenn's card) then there is a smaller 10 1/4 x 4" piece that folds in half on top of the base...what a cute and frugal way to use coloured cardstock!!

Here's Jenn's card:

And here's what I came up with in honour (??) of chicken month:

And here's the inside of my card (ya I did something on the inside since that's where the chicken is), so there you can see the white part open on the yellow base...cool huh??

Shite I used to make this card:

  • Daffodil delight cardstock (SU)
  • White cardstock (Fireworx)
  • Tuxedo Black ink (Memento)
  • Chubby Chums & Slang Gang stamp sets (Paper Smooches)
  • Spiced Marmalade distress marker (Tim Holtz)
  • Squeezed Lemonade distress stain (Tim Holtz)
  • Water brush (Tim Holtz)
  • 1 3/4" circle punch (SU), 2" circle punch (Marvy Uchida)
Want to join the fun?? Link up your project on the SHOPPING OUR STASH BLOG and while you are there show my SOS Crew some crafty love!!

Beautifully done! I like the spotlight CAS look! The image is adorable. I think the Chicken would be proud of how we have honored him!
