Heard You Flew The Coop?

Hello everyone and welcome to the Mid-Month Release Blog Hop!
We are sharing projects made using the NEWLY RELEASED stamp sets from Peachy Keen Stamps!  These will be available to purchase today! There are 4 new stamps- 2 backgrounds and 2 new sentiment sets that coordinate with the Faceless Chickens and March SOTM set.

You should have come here from Saundra's blog, but if not, you will want to start at the beginning at the PK Blog so you don't miss a thing!

I can not get enough of these adorable chickens and these new sentiments are SO FUN! LOL! I used the NEW CLUCKS sentiment set on this card along with the Faceless Chickens





I created the coop shaped card by using the SVG Cutting Files Dog House Slider Card. I just placed the door opening higher and added some strips of paper for the steps into the coop. I also added some shredded rafia for the hay she's laying in. 
I embossed the roof with the Tim Holtz Woodgrain folder and inked it with some distress ink.
I paper pieced the chicken from the Faceless Chicken stamp set and stamped the face with the Chickies Face Assortment
I placed the chicken in the doorway and cut off the bottom of her to fit in the house and added a strip over the bottom edge. 
To finish I stamped the sentiment from the new CLUCKS stamp set onto a banner cut with My Craft Spot's Banner Dies Straight and attached it with a brad. I also stamped the sentiment onto the inside card.

You're next stop in the hop is AMY CROCKET!

I hope you all liked my card and thanks for visiting!
Have a great day!
