Welcome to the Honey Bee Stamp Happy 4th BEEday Release Blog Hop Day 1!
Today I have a Chicken Coop shaped card to share with you featuring the brand new Chicken Coop Dies, Spring Chicks Stamp Set and coordinating dies, and Eggcellent Sentiments Stamp Set! I created my own shaped card base using the chicken coop as a template and added a sentiment in the form of a sign on the coop and an additional sentiment on the inside of the card to round out this fun and playful design. Everyone has those days where we want to say "cluck it", right?!!! Ha!
The 4th BEEday Release from Honey Bee Stamps is HUGE! I've linked to all the products in the release, including 6x6 patterned paper in the shopping list below. While I'm only using a fraction of the incredible products newly released in my project today, I'll be sharing many more over the next few weeks. Be sure to tell me what you want to see me use first in the comments section!

Watch the creation of this chicken coop shaped card from start to finish below or click HERE to watch in HD:
The Chicken Coop was die cut from white woodgrain cardstock and inked with Lawn Fawn Doe and Walnut Inks using the Picket Fence Life Changing Blending Brushes. I die cut the chicken coop twice more from smooth white cardstock.
Using one of the chicken coops as a template, I traced the design on a folded side fold card base and cut out the shape with scissors to make the shaped card base.
The two white layers of the Chicken Coop were adhered to the shaped card base and the layers were finished with the woodgrain layer. A roof for the chicken coop was die cut from Hero Hues Cranberry Cardstock and adhered to the top of the coop. Honey Bee Stamps Candy Hearts in Be Mine were adhered to the roof for decoration.
The hay in the chicken coop was die cut from Lawn Fawn No. 2 Pencil Cardstock and inked with No. 2 Pencil Ink before being adhered to the chicken coop with foam adhesive squares.
A "sign" for the chicken coop was created by stamping a sentiment from the Eggcelent Sentiments Stamp Set on Hero Hues Black Licorice Cardstock with clear embossing ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. The sign was trimmed into a rectangle and adhered to the top of the coop.
Images from the Spring Chicks Stamp Set were stamped on Bristol Smooth Cardstock with Inkon3 Fadeout Ink and colored in with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers before being die cut with the coordinating dies. The images were adhered to the chicken coop as shown.
The following Zig Clean Color Real Brush Marker Colors were used:
Chickens: 060 Brown, 061 Medium Brown, 076 Medium Brown, 068 Deep Brown, 260 Deep Red, 029 Geranium Red, 052 Bright Yellow, 050 Yellow
Eggs: 302 Haze Blue, 999 Blender
To finish the card I stamped an additional sentiment from the Eggcelent Sentiments Stamp Set inside the card with black ink.
