Hey crafter, how would you like to see some cute paper crafts with chickens in my latest Behind the Paper: An Interview with a Paper Crafter!

This monthly feature is all about sharing what gives other crafters their inspiration! What stamps, paper, dies and inks our guest reaches for the most. And you get to see the fun designs they make with a bundle they absolutely love!

So please welcome my good friend and fellow stamper Mary. And her stamp bundles, Hey Chick and Hey Birthday Chick.

Hey Chick! Wassup?

Isn’t that fun? Mary loves to create with lots of detail and fun elements. See the cool sponging she did for the background with the Basic Pattern Decorative masks and her sponge dauber? Perfect for the cornfield!

Who In Your World Deserves a Fun Card Like This?

Isn’t she a little trickster? It’s a tri-fold card! We’ve got one more pic to see the whole card!

Combine Both Hey Chick Bundles for More Creative Opportunities

Mary likes to add in some unexpected bits…like the tiny bits of corn by the cupcake. Let’s get to know her a little bit more.

An Interview with a Paper Crafter

What “hooked” you about making your own handcrafted cards and items?

Many years ago, I took a card making class in a small local business, now called The Country Cupboard in Red Deer. It was way upstairs in a back room.  The woman teaching showed us how to heat emboss using an iron.  It was magic and I was hooked!

How much time do you spend crafting?

I don’t spend as much time as I used to, but I would say some days it could be two-three hours but many days I just think about crafting lol!

What – if anything – don’t you like about paper crafting? 

I am not a very tidy or organized person, so I need an assistant to clean up after me!

What type of space do you craft in?

Well, if I could get into my craft room…🙄 (Currently my dining room table, which is perfect in Covid times because I am not entertaining!)

The Place is Going to the Birds!
A Gatefold PopUp Card is a Fun Way to Wish a Happy Birthday!

Which items do you most like to make?

I like to do a bit of all of them, but cards and treat holders make everyone smile. Or at least I do when I receive them!

What advice would you give to someone just starting to paper craft?

Talk to other paper crafters and go slow get your basic supplies.  It will be hard though if you are keener because you want everything!

I’d say it looks like Mary is a keener? What you you think?

Here’s a closer peek at these bundles you can save 10% on – but only until June 30th.

Which One Will You Make?

So many of us have the Hey Chick stamp set as it was a free item a few Sale-a-bration’s ago. But now we can get dies to go along with them, we instantly get more options! The bundle will be gone as of June 30th so make sure you pick it up soon!

Can I Feature YOU?

Throughout this series, I’ll bring you both new and more *ahem* elderly craft pals. Lots of them I’ve known for years and years. Some I’ve only recently met through this website and on my Facebook group. And there are so many more I’ve yet to meet!

If you’d like to see your designs featured here, contact me at jo@designwithjo.ca. Everyone would love to see your handmade artwork!

This was the last question I asked Mary.

What was your most recent favourite design you made?  Why did you like it?

I enjoyed the tri-fold card or something that is folded a little differently.  It just creates a little more interest.

Lots of Detail Makes an Outstanding Card

We agree Mary! And this one is super cute!

I hope you enjoyed these Cute Paper Crafts with Chickens Behind the Paper feature with Mary – drop back again soon for my next featured artist!
