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,

Sandy

Fun with Farm Dies

July 10, 2021

Karen here today! I’m excited to share a few cards I made with the “Life is Better on the Farm” collection of dies and stamps. I’d gone to a class at a craft event several years back where I was going to make a mini-album with all sorts of inked up backgrounds. I didn’t finish the project, but I recently found the pack of backgrounds and decided to have some fun with the farm animals and a few of the “accessory” die sets.

These were the three fun backgrounds that I decided to play with. I love how fun and colorful they are. Note that I used 90 lb Soft Finish Cardstock to create all my card bases and all my critters today. Love this cardstock!

With that gorgeous green background, I decided to use the very sweet Sheep die in shades of tan distress inks (Tea Dye, Antique Linen and Ground Espresso. (The cheeks have a teeny bit of Kitsch Flamingo.) I used a piece of ribbon, the Party Accessories Dies and Florals 5 Dies to jazz up this fun birthday card. The sentiment is from the Life is Better on the Farm Sentiment Stamps and is cut out with a Stitched Circles die, framed with a Fitted Circles die.

My “howdy” stamp is made with the REALLY sweet Donkey dies, colored with Kitsch Flamingo, Walnut Stain and Antique Linen Distress Inks. The hat is from the Hats set and is colored with Worn Lipstick, Mustard Seed and a Y26 Copic marker. Eek, I love him! The sunflowers are colored with Mowed Lawn, Mustard Seed and Walnut Stain Distress Inks and are in the Farm Accessories dies. Again, on this card, I used the Life is Better on the Farm Stamps.

And WHAT could be cuter than a farmer roasting a hot dog?! Of course, the fellow is cut with the Farmer die. His skin tones are Copics E000, E00, R21 and R4 (lips). The clothes are Faded Denim, Squeezed Lemonade, Black Soot, and Antique Linen. His grey hair is colored with Hickory Smoke. The hot dog, stick and fire can be found in the Camping Accessories. They are colored Vintage Photo, Crackling Campfire, Mustard Seed and an E11 Copic (hot dog). The Tree die was also used on this card (I just used a piece of it…) Again, the sentiment is from the Life is Better on the Farm Set.

That’s it for me today! Thanks so much for stopping by.

Craftily yours, Karen

Hogs & Kisses

June 20, 2021

Hello friends, it’s Sandy Diller and I’m here to share an anniversary card I made for my husband. It is our 57th year together and we don’t usually celebrate or give each other a gift but this year I thought it would be fun to make him a card. I just love Joset’s farm animals and I especially like the little pig. So – Hogs & Kisses!

This is a slimline card so I cut my pink cardstock 9″ X 8″ and scored it in the center to make a 9″ X 4″ finished card.

After cutting a white panel, 8.75″ X 3.75″, and printed panel, 8.50″ X 3.50″, I then layered them together. Using the fitted circle die set I cut 3 holes across the two panels and then added them on top of the pink card. Be sure to leave enough room around the inside of the circle to place the pigs in later.

Next the cute little pigs were cut and assembled placing their feet, ears and tails in different positions. To make the eyes stand out I used Craft Drops. To decorate the opening, I used a die from one of the journaling sets cutting it three times.

The pigs were placed in the opening and glued down. Using the “Life Is Better On The Farm” stamp set – stamp Hogs & Kisses in the center opening. Finish off the card by placing some random hearts all around. On the inside I just placed a white panel so I could write a personal message.

Have a creative week,

Sandy

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
