Hey Chick, Sale-a-Bration is Here!

It’s hard to believe Sale-a-Bration is here.  The excitement of this promotion has been building for months!

Before I share today’s card, let me start with an apology.

If you read yesterday’s post, I completely led you astray on accident.

I edited the post late afternoon, but in case you did not see it I wanted to update you now.

The Glamper Greetings stamp set IS still be available!

I’m thankful for a kind demonstrator who helped me out with a carry over list from the Holiday catalog.  You can find it HERE.

Hey, Chick! I’m FREE!

I love chickens, and especially a stamp set with chickens in it.

This Sale-a-Bration stamp set is going to be a HUGE hit and especially for those who love to watercolor.

The chicken images in this set are all line images, meaning they are open for you to color with your favorite coloring tools.

Stampin’ Up! has added Watercolor Pencils back into our product line.  There are 12 pencils in the pack, each providing a creamy soft texture when coloring.

Tips & Tricks

Hey Chick, Sale-a-Bration, Stampin' Up!


It’s been awhile since I’ve used Watercolor Pencils, but I love how easy they are to use with a Blender Pen on Whisper White cardstock.

Here are a few tips & tricks I used for this fun chicken card.

  • Stamp the image using Archival Basic Black ink.  Heat set the image using a heat tool, or let the ink dry very well before water coloring. I used a Blender Pen to water color the chicken image.
  • The Urban Underground Suite has perfect products to coordinate with the Hey Chick stamp set such as the designer series paper as well as the Hexagon Dynamic  Textured Impressions embossing folder,
  • Stamp the chicken and the greeting onto cardstock, then die cut using the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  These will be available mid-January.

  • Lastly, I added my favorite twine using the 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon, taking one piece of twine from the ribbon and curling a few times in my palm and stapling to the focal image.
