Roosters on Parade!

Hello ALL!

I found some stickers before Stampin’Up!

came out with ‘Home To Roost’ Stamp Set!


Aren’t these guys adorable?

I saw a great Card by Dawn Olchefske for the

‘Home To Roost’ stamp set and I fell in love with the card!

Here’s a picture of what her card looks like…


I copied and printed the card and instructions on a page and then printed out!


Here is my CASE (Copy And Share Everything)

of Dawn’s Card!


I added the 2 greetings!

My square with the Rooster Sticker is smaller

than the one on the Card that Dawn made and colored so beautifully!

The sticker Roosters are much smaller than the stamped Rooster!

I also used Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Write Marker to color

around the feet of the Roosters to give them some grounding!


Here is a second Card I made, but with different colors!


I found this gingham DSP at Michaels and I had to use it!


Here is a picture of both cards!


Aren’t these Cheery! I Love them!


Here are the stock and measures for these cards:


Mango Melody and Pineapple Punch-  5.5″ X 8.5″ score @ 2 1/8″ and 4.25″ fold in half

at 4.25″ and then fold front flap back

(Mango Melody is Dawn’s Card)

I also used scraps of both for the greeting mats to match the card bases

Real Red- for both cards, 1.5″ x 8.5: score @ 4.25″ and 6 3/8″ (the opposite ‘Z’ fold!)

Pacific Point- scallop square mat  approx. 2 3/8″ x 2 3/8″ (my card)

the square is smaller to accommodate the smaller sticker

Granny Apple Green- square mat 2 5/16″ x 2 5/16″ (my Card)

the square is smaller to accommodate the smaller sticker

Whisper White- 2.5″ square, approximate (my card)

(Dawn’s Orig, card 2 5/8″ square, approx. and she used Watercolor Paper)

1 1/8″ x 1 5/8″, ‘Happy Birthday’ greeting, I added to the card

scrap for stamping and punching out second greeting (It’s your Day)

Dawn Used a greeting from the ‘Home To Roost’ stamp set

Dawn used her Aqua Painter with Stampin’Up! Classic Ink Pads 

Real Red, Mango Melody, Shaded Spruce, Blackberry Bliss, Sahara Sand

to watercolor her Rooster and ground!


Big Shot- die cutting machine

Layering Squares Framelits- scallop square and square mats

Stitched Shapes Framelits- Whisper White square with the Rooster Sticker

Dawn used the same Framelits, just the larger sizes for the stamped Rooster

1 1/4″ Scallop Circle Punch- mat for the scallop circle greeting

I added the greetings with mats to my card!

Here are the Cards again!



Here are 2 leftover Roosters…Yes, I made four of each Card for my stash!!!!


There are 2 sheets of Roosters

I only used 8 off this sheet of 10

I have these 2 Roosters and another page of 10!

I guess I’ll have to go to Pinterest to find more ideas!!


Until the next Post…Blessings and Happy ‘CASE’-ing to you ALL!
