Home to Roost Sale-a-Bration Style

Just thought I would pop by with my friend and fellow blogger Zoe Tant for a quick little share. . .

Zoe and I have both enjoyed the Sale-a-Bration products this year and wanted to do a mini share to inspire you to continue to create over the next few weeks until Sale-a-Bration finishes.  Here in Australia you get to choose a FREE Sale-a-Bration product each time you spend $90 ore more, and of course if you spend $180, $270 you get to choose two and three items etc.

I am featuring Home to Roost - I love it because of the quirky rooster. The stamped image gives me opportunities to explored different colour combinations and I simply love the wheat/grass stamp and sentiments in the pack.

These are my creations and I have included my wrought iron rooster Roger in the background as well!
I have embraced simple stamping with this set and stamped the rooster on Whisper White card stock using the Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and coloured the images with Stampin' Blends - the colours I used were:

Dark and Light Night of Navy
Dark and Light Bermuda Bay
Dark and Light Old Olive
Dark Daffodil Delight
Dark Pumpkin Pie
Dark Poppy Parade

First card incorporated masking - I stamped the grain grass in Crumb Cake. I made a mask of the rooster image with a post it note and placed it over the stamped image of the rooster to stop it from being stamped on. The card that the rooster is stamped on is cut out with the Layering Squares Framelits. The base card is Real Red card, the mount behind the stamped image is Bermuda Bay.
Base card is Crumb Cake and I have stamped the Buffalo Plaid in Night of Navy on a rectangle of Crumb Cake card and run another rectangle through the Big Shot with the Hexagons Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder. These are both mounted on a rectangle of Night of Navy as is the stamped image to give a "framed effect".
The third card incorporates some different techniques. Base card is Bermuda Bay mounted with a rectangle of Basic Black, then Whisper White card as is the stamped image (black and white). As a point of difference I inked the Hexagon Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder with Bermuda Bay ink and treated it like a stamp to get the chicken wire effect at on the base card.
I also stamped the rooster a second time and coloured the image then unched the head out with a 13/8" Circle Punch to pop the detail of the rooster.
Base card is Basic Black, mounted with Bermuda Bay embossed using the Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder. A pop of Daffodil Delight with the Gingham Gala DSP.
This card is almost monochromatic with the pop of colour coming from the rooster. Pear Pizzazz Card base mounted with a rectangle of the same card. The wheat/grass is stamped in Pear Pizzazz. I wanted the pop of colour to come from the coloured rooster.
A close up shows the rooster coloured with Clear Wink of Stella to give it some additional pop.
Old Olive Base card stamped randomly with the rooster image. A rectangle of black to tie in with the stamped central rooster image and Real Red card behind the image to marry in the colours.
I love country style cards and projects look great with Night of Navy colour schemes. So the base card is obvious here. Stamped all over with the rooster image in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. The main stamped image is mounted on Basic Black card on the 45 degree angle.
I thought that the diamond shape of the main stamped image made the whole thing pop.

So seven different ways to incorporate the rooster image on your projects and all of them simple and easy to complete.

Why not pop over to Zoe's blog and take a look at her amazing mixed media creation. I love it - the colours are superb and the different textures and colouring sublime!

Until next time, stay glittery
