Splatter cow

June 11, 2022

Hi everyone, it’s my turn today to share my latest design with you all. I do like to make all sorts of styles in cardmaking but my most favourite is the more clean and simple style, here we have a simple card that fits that theme perfectly.

Step One:

Using a sheet of white card and some watered down black acrylic paint, splatter the whole sheet then set aside to dry. The bigger the brush the bigger the splatters.

Tip: Place the white card inside a cardboard box to contain the splashes.

Step Two:

Die cut the cow mostly using the splattered sheet see image below for all the different pieces, ink the nose and udder using distress ink spun sugar and ink around the white edges using black ink.

Step Three:

Attach a panel of splattered card measuring 5.5 x 1″ to the front of a top folding A2 card black.

Step Four:

Trim another panel of white card measuring 5.5 x 3.5, attach a strip of bright pink card to the reverse side allowing approximately 1/8th to show at the edge. Fix this panel to the card front using 3d foam pads.

Step Five:

Heat emboss the sentiment onto black card using white embossing powder and a heat tool, then trim the sentiment down to a smaller strip before fixing toward the bottom of the card front using more 3d foam pads.

Step Six:

Add the Cow using more 3d foam pads then fix a few enamel dots or gem to finish off.

Thank you for stopping by today, I hope you have been inspired to try a clean and simple style of cardmaking. Happy crafting – Jackie x

Cow’s it going?

May 9, 2022

Hello everyone! Today it’s my turn to show you a nice creation. This time I started working with a TN page.

First I die cut the puzzle page (1848). For this I used paper from the Rainbow of Happiness paper pas (C006). Love this paper pad because of the bright colors! On the left die cut the spot that comes with the puzzle page. I used this as a cow stain. Behind this I made a black square, only adhered at the edges so I could add the cow in between.

In the square on the right side I made a shaker window. I did this by making mica behind the square window. You fold this in half again. You can use anything as shaking material. I used some Picket Fence here and combines it with micro beads.

After that I started with the cow and the pig. I colored both of these with distress inks. With the cow you don’t have to add his feet, tale and all his marks as it won’t show.

Now it’s time to finish the pages. The cow can go in the spot on the left and the pig on the other page. Behind the pig I added another background. I used the earth background die (1895) for this.

At the end I stamped a sentiment on both pages to complete it.

Hopefully you like this page as much as I do! See you next time!

Enjoy the Ride!

April 13, 2022

Howdy everyone. Jackie here today with this super fun design using a few of our farm friends! It’s great to group a few of Joset’s characters together creating a fun scene. If you would like to give this design a go then let’s get started.

Step One:

Start by creating the frame background use the scalloped edge frame and square dies from the pizza box set, die cut two scalloped frames into black card and two pale blue squares gluing the two pairs together.

Step Two:

Place the two die cut shapes together with the scalloped frame crooked then fix to a 5.25×5.25″ white card blank using 3d foam squares.

Step Three:

Build up the Cow, Donkey and Farmer as normal, add a few white dotty detail to the farmers shirt using a white gel pen.

Step Four:

Arrange the characters in a cluster with the farmer riding the cow, when you are happy with the arrangement fix in place using more 3d foam squares.

Step Five:

Stamp out the sentiment using using black ink, then trim down to a thin strip.

Step Six:

Attach the sentiment to the bottom of the frame tucking just under the edge, add the pitch fork to finish.

This card can be used for many different occasions, you can switch up the sentiment and add whatever you like.

Thank you for stopping by today I hope you have found some inspiration – Happy crafting Jackie.

Mini Slimline Cow’s It Going? Card

August 2, 2021

Hi everyone, it’s Tina here. I have a simple card to share using the Cow, Adventure Edges along with the Stitched Ovals to create a frame. Below you will find the steps to create your own card.

Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 7” x 6”, score at 3 1/2” and fold in half for a vertical side fold card. (Mini Slimline)

Step 2 – Diecut Adventure Edges (clouds) using a scrap piece of cardstock. Place on top of the card front and apply Distress Oxide Ink Tumbled Glass to the edge. Move it down and repeat until you have filled the entire card front.

Step 3 – Diecut Stitched Oval and Fitted Oval using White Soft Finish Cardstock to create a frame. Place it on the card front and using a pencil lightly mark the top of the inside oval. This will help for the placement of the stamp.

Step 4 – Stamp Life Is Better On The Farm sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black Ink. Using the pencil as a guide you can shape the stamp on your stamping tool so it will stamp in an oval shape. Once the ink is dry you can erase the pencil mark.

Step 5 – Adhere the Oval Frame created from Step 3 using Foam Tape.

Step 6 – Diecut Cow in various colors of cardstock. I used White, Black and Tan. Assemble the cow head using tweezers and Kid’s Choice Glue then adhere to the card front using Foam Tape.

Step 7 – For added interest randomly adhere some Pearls.

This card can be personalized to the recipient by changing the character that the recipient loves. You can also change up the sentiment. Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!

Cow’s It Going?

July 18, 2021

Hello friends and welcome back. I have a friend that is feeling a little down in the dumps so I though a lite hearted card might cheer her up. I made this card using Joset’s farm collection which is just adorable.

I cut two barns and joined them together at the top. The cut marks will be on the bottom section so I simply put some clear tape over them, once I add all the other elements to this panel they will not show.

Cut all the pieces that go on the front of the barn, gave them some dirty edges and attach to barn. On the finished card you will notice that some farm items and some hay were added.

Create three cows – I made mine three different colors just for fun because there are no two cows exactly the same.

Add cows and hay to the inside along with a greeting. Using the Life Is Better On The Farm stamp set, stamp Cow’s it going on black cardstock, emboss it in white and added to the card.

Thanks for joining me today and have a crafty week,

Little Chocolate Cow

June 29, 2021

When you love chocolate, you need to make the very famous cow! This time I made the cow with felted wool, love the texture of this! At first I cut out all the pieces from the felt in different colors like white, purple and light pink. I didn’t have the color brown that I wanted to use for the feet so I decided to use Ground Expresso Distress Ink to color the white felt brown. On the back site I used double sided adhesive. Then it’s super easy to assemble your cow.

For the background I used Lindy’s Magicals. This is a powder with a lot of pigments. I used the colors Prima Donna Purple and Cattail Copper Brown. When you spray with water you have a lot of colors! Of course I wanted to have purple on the background, because that’s the color of the cow. I also added a little bit of brown to match with the chocolate.

For a simple effect on the background I used a mask from the stencil pack S041 together with expanding mouse (worn linnen). When you heat the expanding mouse it gives a really great effect!

Then I made a chocolate bar. First I cut a piece of White Soft Finisch Cardstock 9 x 6 cm. for the bar and colored this piece with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I added 6 little squares measuring 2.1 x 2.1 cm that I colored with the same ink. It is so easy to make a paper chocolate bar. Wish it was that easy to make a real one 😉

And of course I had to use some Silk Microfine Glitter on this card! This time I used the stain die from the 1848 Puzzle page. It looks like spots on a cow. I first cut the stain pieces from white cardstock with clear double sided adhesive on top. I then remove the top sheet of the adhesive and colored the exposed adhesive with 661 Violet Silk Microfine Glitter. I then added the spots on the background piece of the card.

For the bottom of the chocolate bar I used a piece of paper in purple with white dots. This paper I used later on the background of the hole card. I also cut a banner (fitted fishtails 1694) from White Soft Finish Cardstock and stamped the sentiment “Cow’s it going?” from the farm collection (life it better on the farm CS221). This time I used embossing powder for the stamps. The background color is also distress ink Vintage Photo.

Hope you like it and see you all soon!!

Hee Haw! It’s Your Birthday

May 16, 2021

Hello friends, it’s Sandy Diller and I’m here to share an easel card that is packed full of fun and cuteness. This farm collection from Joset is just adorable and making these cute little critters is addictive.

This is fun and easy so let’s get started.

Since this is an easel card and I wanted it to be tall – I began with cardstock that was 12″ X 5″ then scored as shown above. To extend the bottom of the card and add some weight I added a panel that was 5″ X 7″.

I love making these adorable animals and have a few on hand. I used the Sheep, Cow, Donkey, Hen & Rooster and Pig on this card. The Cow and Donkey are sitting down on this card so I used the die shown with the arrow to achieve this look.

Since my animals are all piled up, I made the Barn taller by placing the cutting pad above the arrow as shown with the white line and leaving some extra paper on the bottom. After the barn was complete, it was glued along with the animals on a 5″ X 7″ white panel and then added to the easel card.

The hay panel was placed at the bottom edge of the card and folded just 1/2″ inch at the top to make the front panel stand up. Some altered hay stacks were added to the top edge. I used the Life is Better On The Farm stamp set to stamp the greeting and some extra chickens, you can never have too many chickens.

Enjoy your week and get creative,

Holy Cow in Both Brown and White!

April 30, 2021

Karen here! I’m having so much fun with the Life is Better on the Farm Collection. I’d created a card using the FuN Cow die in shades of tan, brown and blue and thought it would be fun to also do it in bright colors. I used the same card sketch and created a second card but this time in shades of lime, navy, and turquoise.

Holy cow, he’s cute! To create this card, I used a piece of Kraft Cardstock and cut an 8-1/2″x11″ piece in two and folded it in half to get the top fold. I wrapped the 4″x5-1/4″ card front with some lace and ribbon and added a Fitted Rounded Rectangle (stamped with a sentiment from the Life is Better on the Farm Stamps) and a Stitched Rounded Square.

I love putting together the adorable critters by Joset. For the Cow on the first card, I cut the pieces from the same Kraft Cardstock. I usually place them about in the order that they would need to be glued together (using Kids Glue). The pieces on the left here were die cut with some 101mm Double Sided Adhesive to make assembly even easier. I colored some of the pieces with Copic markers as follows: cow spots E25, cow nose E41, cow bell Y26, collar B93, udder R20, eyes and hooves E44. I also colored just a smidge of R20 on the undersides of the ears.

For the other cow, I die cut him with the 90 lb White Soft Finish Cardstock. I also used Copics to color some of the pieces except in this case, I used black cardstock for the eyes and spots. The nose was colored with Copic C1, cow bell Y26 and collar YG13.

Thank you for stopping by today!

Craftily yours, Karen
