Karen here today sharing a couple special order cards I made for my mom. She wanted a couple thank you cards, one with a sheep and one with a pig. Easy to do with the adorable farm critters here at Elizabeth Craft Designs!
Both of these critters are colored with a combination of Distress Ink and Copic Markers. The sheep has hints of Hickory Smoke Distress Ink for the “white” parts and Antique Linen face and legs. His eyes and hooves are colored with a Copic C7. I added a teeny bit of Kitsch Flamingo Distress Ink for the cheeks and R20 Copic at the nose. I used a multi-liner to draw the face. The pig is colored with Kitsch Flamingo Distress Ink and Copic C7 marker.
How sweet is that pig! I used the Stitched Rectangle die for the top rectangle and then cut the mat for it 1/4″ bigger on all sides. The card front mat is cut 4×5-1/4″ and the patterned paper is 3-3/4×5″. The word “thanks” is cut from the Words 2 – Thinking of You set. I die cut it twice with 101mm Double Sided Adhesive and stuck them together to add just a bit of dimension.
And I LoVe this sheep! I used the same card sketch to create it. On both cards, I also love the little bit of lace and baker’s twine. And, I finished both cards off with some diamond dots.
Thanks for stopping by today!
Craftily yours, Karen

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.
Hi everyone, it’s Tina here. I just can’t get enough of the Farm Release from Joset Designs. From the adorable farm characters to the accessories and punny sentiments. Today’s card is showcasing the Pig, sunflower and creating your own background with masking. 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 horizontal top fold card. (Mini Slimline)
Step 2 – Diecut Fitted Ovals using a Masking Sheet. (If you do not have Masking Sheets then diecut with light weight cardstock). Place the negative Masking Sheet onto the front of the card. Using a Blender Brush apply any inks of your choice. I used Distress Oxide Salty Ocean and Cracked Pistachio. Remove the masking sheet.
Step 3 – Stamp Life Is Better On The Farm sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black Ink.
Step 4 – Diecut Farm Accessories (Sunflower) using various colors of cardstock. (Tip: I use White Soft Finish inked in various colors). Assemble and adhere to card using Kid’s Choice Glue.
Step 5 – Diecut Pig (using Pink Cardstock) and mud (using Kraft Cardstock). Ink the edges. Assemble and adhere to card 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape for the Mud Pool and Foam Tape for the Pig.
This card can be for many occasions simply because the sentiment goes with a lot of occasions. Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
