Stamp Off Hey, Chick Double Z

Wow!!  I've been so busy, that it feels like weeks
since I've posted a Stamp Off Challenge with
Buffy and Susan.  Time sure does fold over on itself.
Today, our challenge is to make a Double Z Fun Fold card.
To prepare for this challenge, I went to 
SCS (Spitcoaststampers) for this tutorial.
 This is a sneak peak of a SAB/Sale-A-Bration set that
will be available FREE with purchase beginning January 4th.
It is called Hey, Chick and I love this set.  
It is smart AND sassy.
Stampin' Up! is making colored pencils available in
January, so this is a great FREE set to practice your
coloring skills on.  I colored this image with stamp pad ink
and an aqua painter.  I did use a blue Watercolor pencil
to outline the figure to make it stand out.
The ovals on this card were produced with the new
Stitched Framelits and the Layering Ovals Framelits
on page 193. They coordinate perfectly! I used the
Woodgrain Textured Impressions Embossing Folder on page
195 to add color (but not embossed texture) to the card panels.
The colors used for this card are Crumb Cake,
Crushed Curry, Calypso Coral and Watercolor paper.
Here is the inside of this card. I do have to apologize
as I did a different kind of Double Z fold.  Buffy and Susan
were on the same page.... I was not!

So now it is time to hop on over to see what 
Buffy and Susan have done with their Double Z Fold cards. 
I wouldn't be shocked if Susan used the Hey, Chick stamp set,
because we often experience unique mind melding moments.

Flourish Thinlits with Sliding Star Framelits.

Sorry I haven't posted regularly.  I have lots of cards
to post, just have been too busy!

This card uses two of my favorite products; the Flourish
Thinlits on page 194, and the Sliding Star Framelits
on page 192.  Both coordinate with lovely sets, but
 can also be easily used in conjunction with a variety
of products, as in this example.
