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

Hello friends, it’s Sandy Diller here to share the new Farm Collection from Joset. These little critters are so much fun and so dang cute that it’s hard to stop making them. Today I’m sharing an easel card that shows off these great images.
I don’t know if a donkey can drive a tractor but it’s fun to think about.
I just couldn’t pack enough fun into the tractor so decided to make a little trailer to go with it so I could use even more of these charming characters.
To make the tractor and trailer you will need a large card. I made mine 5″X7″. The card base needs to be 7″X 10″ and scored on the 10″ side at 5″ and 7.5″ (shown in blue). The green panel is 6.75″ by 2.75 and then scored at 1/2″ on the long side. I used the adventure edges to make the grass by lining it up on the score line and then folding upward.
The white panel is 2″X 6.5 and then stamped using the “Life is Better on the Farm” stamp set.
The entire panel was popped up using double sided foam tape but this is a personal choice.
The panel was added to the bottom of the card with the grass section folded upward. This holds the easel portion that is shown above.
The tractor was cut from green (it can be any color you like) then edged with a darker green. For the trailer, simply cut a rectangle. round the bottom edges and add a thin strip at the top.
Add the wheels, I used one large and three smaller ones to make mine. Add some hay if you like.
On a panel made from white Soft Finish Cardstock ( 6.75″ X 4.75″ ). Clouds were added and then a green base followed by some hay bales.
I die cut some of the farm animals – the donkey and sheep were to be placed in the tractor/trailer looking over the edge so I didn’t need to assemble the entire animal but the rooster is another story.
The panel was completed with all the cute animals and the tractor (I popped them up with foam tape).
I hope you have enjoyed a little Hee Haw – Down on the Farm.
Karen here today sharing a card I made with the totally FUN new “Life is Better on the Farm” collection by Joset. This new collection is SO good.
This card is so simple and yet so fun. I used the new Hen & Rooster Die for the two animals. Below, I’ll list out the Copic markers I used to color them. The card is made by cutting a 8-1/2″x11″ piece of 90 lb Soft-Finish cardstock in half lengthwise and folding it in half. The cardfront is cut with a Stitched Indented Rectangle. The blue pattern cardstock was cut into squares that are 2-1/4″ adhered to yellow squares at 2-1/2″. The sentiment is also new from the Life is Better on the Farm Stamps. I added a few half-pearls for interest.
The “white” chicken was colored with a Copic C1, R27, and YR12/14. The Rooster above was colored with the following Copic markers:
Feet and Beak: YR12, YR14
Body: Y35, Y38
Wings: E41, E43
Comb and Waddle: R27, R29
Tail Feathers: Y15, Y18, G12, G16, BG53, BG57
Thanks for checking out my card today.
Craftily yours, Karen
