When I see a rooster, I think of my grandma.  She would have loved this handmade greeting card made with the Stampin' Up! Countryside stamp set.


Grandma had beautiful ceramic roosters in her kitchen.  They were colorful.  Majestic.


Surely every time you see a particular item immediately someone comes to mind just like roosters always make me think of my grandma.




Roosters bring Grandma to mind, but how to color one had me a bit stumped.   I remember Grandma's roosters with a lot of red.   To determine the colors of my handstamped rooster, I Googled "roosters".    A picture of a real rooster came up with the colors I used for my handstamped rooster.



The colors of the rooster on my handmade Countryside card jogged my memory of one of those ceramic roosters.  How incredibly cool the colors were Stampin' Up! colors!  That sure made it easy.  The Classic Stampin' Ink Pads I used with an Aqua Painter to color the handstamped rooster are Island Indigo, More Mustard, Raspberry Ripple, Cajun Craze and Lucky Limeade for the grass.


What was even better was those are the colors in Orchard Harvest Designer Series Paper from the 2012 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog.   It is no wonder the colors all work so well together – they occur together in nature by the way of a rooster.


The die-cut card stock the Countryside rooster is stamped and layered onto was made in a flash with the Stampin' Up! Windows Frames Framelits Dies run through a Sizzix Big Shot Die-Cut Machine.  The Windows Frames Framelits Dies are also from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog.


The base of the card is the neutral Crumb Cake Card Stock.  It allowed all the colors to stand out.  The button is also Crumb Cake.  It is one of the Stampin' Up! Neutral Designer Buttons.
