Buckle your seatbelts, my friends. If you consider yourself easily shocked, you might want to visit another blog today. There’s a story here…
I designed this card for my Hostess Club, because I really didn’t think the one I WANTED to make was appropriate. For the record, here are the supplies:
- Stamps: Honeycomb Hello
- Color Palette: So Saffron, Crushed Curry, Basic Black, Mint Macaron, Whisper White
- Accessories: Botanical Builder Framelits, Botanical Gardens DSP, 1 3/4″ Circle Punch, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Rhinestone Jewels, Iced Rhinestone Embellishments, Aquapainter
You have to be a little careful with this chick, because there’s attitude in that face. And this is where the story begins.
I’m gonna let my BFF tell it – actually, she practically demanded that I let her write this post.
This card is not for the faint of heart. Or for the Fragile Friends.
So… a bit of background. Imagine. Late night in a stampin’ garage dodging insects. (And by late night, I mean, 9:00…cause my normal bedtime is 7:30… so we are talking LATE). And a couple of stampers, who shall remain nameless to protect their identities, were perusing the new Occasions Catalog. And at this time of night, delirium has set in. Severe case of the funnies has set in. We get to Honeycomb Hello. Love the bird, the stamps, but decide how USEFUL an OH HELL sentiment could be. And how we are apparently missing this sentiment from our stampin’ arsenal. Well, don’t you love the markering stamp technique?? Allows you to put ink where you want and not where you don’t. So…you can make whatever sentiment you like.
This is the perfect card for your bestest bff of all time. Cause they are the ones you call when you have the phrase… “Well, you’ll never guess what I did today….” or when you forgot something significant, or when you are needing comfort… but in ALL those situations, OH HELL works!! And cause she is your bestest BFF, she totally gets it. And jumps right into the madness and sits with you (brings the wine and chocolate) until life is normal again. And she is also the one, when opening this card will understand that it is the perfect card at the perfect time. It’s a PERFECT I’m sorry card. Or Birthday… or well… ANYTHING. This is the best BESTEST BFF CARD.
Don’t you just love those little honeycomb embellishments!?! They are the perfect accent to add to this little chick.
Now, I LOVE kind and pretty and delightful cards that uplift and make people’s day. But even though we live in paradise, life isn’t always sunshine and rainbows. A good OH HELL and a glaring chick will make your BFF smile. Every time. I promise. Cause it’s the reminder that she gets it. And, really, she doesn’t even need to say anything for you to understand that that fact.
Seriously? Couldn’t have said it better myself.

You just made my morning! And now I have to put in an order to get this set. I can’t quit laughing at how cute this is. You just made this a very popular set. Things just happen.
Thanks, Dawn. Honestly, I could not WAIT to get my hands on that set for just this card! But I was a little nervous about sharing it, so your comment reassures me that I’m not the only one who thinks it rocks.
Anne. That card is quite appropriate for the week I’ve had! Love it! Especially with that innocent little chicky with the tummy! The colors are beautiful!
Girl, no wonder you haven’t called. We need to talk. Oh hell.
This is just the most adorable card. I am waiting on my stamp set to arrive to make it. Did you mean a 2 1/2″ circle punch instead of 1 3/4″? The chick measures just over 2″, Thanks for sharing.
Linda, you are right – it was a 2 1/2″ circle! Thanks for catching that. Glad you like it!
