Good morning and welcome to another edition of Cards and Creations by Lori McBride. My name is Lori McBride and I’m a Stampin’ Up Independent Demonstrator.
Today, I’d like to share with you an absolutely precious card I created using the *Hey Chick Bundle* cased from a very talented artist named Marcie Beseeker.
Every once in a while, we as Demonstrators get blocked creatively and we will seek out ideas from other sources. Originally, I found Marcie on the Demonstrator Planning Place (exclusive group for Demonstrators only) but she does have a YouTube Channel.
Her video on this design has forever changed the way that I create cards! I learned SO much from just watching ONE of her videos! I will add a link to the end of this Blog linking it back to her video.
My card created with her design is quite different as I do not own some of the supplies she used in her video.
The purpose of this Blog is to emphasize that you can use alternate products to come out with a similar design while still creating an absolutely stunning card.

My card did not include the new DSP. It’s stamped with the All Wired Up Stamp Set in Crumb Cake. Honestly, next time, I’m going darker and will stamp it in Soft Suede to make it stand out just a little bit more. Another modification would be to use some of our current Neutrals DSP which honestly, I just didn’t think about at the time but there’s a very pretty woodgrain in it that would totally work. There’s also those beautiful woodgrain papers from the In Good Taste DSP that would also make a great substitute.
I also felt like the Crumb Cake on Crumb Cake on the dirt mound was just a little too subtle so I did stamp it in Soft Suede Ink and it did make a world of difference.
Although the Whimsy Dies are still on my Wishlist – they haven’t hit my craft stash quite yet. I improvised and used the largest of the Rectangular Stitched Dies.
There’s part of Marcie’s video where she thinks that part of the sign is like a “no swimming” type of sign. It’s not. It’s the top of a flat head screw where the farmer had attached the top of the sign to the pole of the sign. I can see where it might throw people off.
I also didn’t have the sequins that Marcie used in her video. I do however, have some leftover Holiday Rhinestones in my stash so I used some of the Pumpkin Pie ones.
Of course, I didn’t use the DSP or the large hen on the inside of the card. I did follow some of Marcie’s tips and tricks but also decided to kind of do my own thing with the chicken coupe and stamping.
Thank you so much for joining me today. I hope that you enjoyed this modified “case” and will go back and watch Marcie’s full video for all the little tips and tricks I learned from her by following this link:
Until next time – Happy Stampin’ Everyone!
