Stampin’ Up! Hey, Chick and Tasty Trucks for the Control Freaks Blog Hop

Control Freak Stampers

Welcome to the December Control Freak Stampers Blog Tour!  You may have arrived from Kelly Acheson, her projects are always fantastic!  This month the theme is “Sale-a-bration/Occasions 2017” so we’re all creating Stampin’ Up! projects with items from the upcoming Occasions Catalog and Sale-a-bration Brochure.

For my first project, I’m featuring that crazy chicken from the Hey, Chick stamp set.  This is a Sale-a-bration exclusive stamp set that will be available for free beginning January 4!

It doesn’t show up well in the photos, but after coloring the chicken with Watercolor Pencils and a Blender Pen, I added a little Clear Wink of Stella to the crazy hair and tail feathers.  A little shimmer makes the hair look even crazier…love it!

For my second project, I used the awesome Watercolor Pencils and a Blender pen to color the little food truck from the Tasty Trucks stamp set.  This is another Sale-a-bration exclusive stamp set that will be available beginning January 4!

I used the Watercolor Pencils and a Blender Pen to color the image on Whisper White card stock and it worked great!  I didn’t do a lot of blending, so I’m not sure how well the paper would hold up to that, but for quick coloring it worked perfectly!

    • Thanks Linda! I finally finished my Christmas stuff…whew! So glad to have that out of the way so that I can play with my new goodies. Can’t wait to see what you create with these stamp sets! 🙂

  1. Oh my gosh, totally fab cards Amy! I love the crazy chicken hair, lol! Kinda like my mornings 😉 And the watercoloring came out beautifully for your food truck! Love the shading 🙂

  2. Both cards are so cute, Amy, but I have to admit that crazy chicken resembles me when I get up in the morning! Great, fun cards.
