TAWS March Release Day 1: Hard Boiled

Hi everyone! Welcome to Day 1 of The Alley Way Stamps fantastic March 2015 release - woot woot!!

We are sneak peeking the *NEW* Hard Boiled stamp set today, which will be available to purchase from The Alley Way Stamps store at 10pm (mountain time) on Saturday 28th February.

Hard Boiled is a 4x6" clear stamp set packed full of cute chicken themed stamps.  I have used several of them on today's card:

TAWS Hard Boiled stamp set (available 28/02/15)
Memento ink pads: Tuxedo Black, London Fog
Versafine Onyx Black ink pad
Bazzill Smoothies cardstock: Coconut Swirl, Ocean Breeze
Copic Markers: Chick YR24 Y21 Y11 Y00; Eggs E42 E41 E40
Nest Y28 Y57 Y55 Y53 Y51 Y50 E44 E43 E42
Inkadinkado Stamping Masking Paper
Doodlebug Enamel Dots: Bon Bon
Rangers Enamel Accents: Black

First, I created my little hatched chickies scene by masking and stamping several stamps from Hard Boiled.  I coloured the scene using my Copic markers and then fussy cut it out.  I cut a 63x86mm panel of Ocean Breeze cardstock, added the sentiment from Hard Boiled, and then added the stamped and coloured scene using foam pads for dimension.  I added this to the centre of my 105x148mm card base, again using foam pads, then added a few enamel dots and some black enamel accents to finish!

I followed the fab sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch #111 for my layout, and I would also like to enter this card into this week's Addicted to CAS #57: Mask challenge, Less is More #212: Wings, and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes.


If you hop on over to today's sneak peek post on the The Alley Way Stamps blog, you will be able to see the rest of the team's awesome Hard Boiled sneak peek cards, plus there is an opportunity to WIN this fantastic stamp set! Be quick, as the contest is running for today only and will close at 7pm mountain time tonight (that's 2am tomorrow morning for my UK friends!).

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
