Hogs and Kisses

Hello!  Today I have a fun card to share over on the Scrapping Cottage blog for my design team day.  The new Country Farm die release has been a delight to create with.  There are so many adorable die sets available for a variety of creations!

For today's card, I used the Playful Piggies and Piggy w/Crate die sets using colored card stock.  I also cut out 2 circle from the Pierced Circle Set with white card stock.  All of the die cuts were inked on the edges for added dimension.
For my card base, I used the Nested Rectangles Slimline die set to cut out my patterned paper and inked it on the edges.
The two pierced circles were adhered on top of my slimline card base, leaving a bit of space between them for a sentiment tag.
The Piggy w/Crate was affixed inside the bottom circle on my card.
I placed the Playful Piggy inside the top circle along with the mud splatters surrounding him.
A fun sentiment was stamped on a hand cut flag and adhered between the 2 circles.

Herd the News!

Hello!  Today I'm sharing a card over on the Scrapping Cottage blog featuring dies from the new Country Farm release.  These die sets are absolutely adorable and perfect for so many occasions!  This card will be perfect to have on hand for a celebratory occasion!

I used the following die sets on my card:  Stacked Farm Animals, Curly Sheep & Lamb, Country Farm Stable and the Old Farm Fence.  I used colored card stock for all of my die cuts and inked them on the edges for some dimension.
The rustic papers with a bit of country charm are from my stash and were perfect for my card.
I created my card base by layering the 2 panels of paper with the wood themed panel on top.
The grass was affixed to the bottom portion of my card with the farm fence tucked in behind.
Next, the adorable cow was placed on top of the grass as the focal point of my card.
I proceeded to build the stack of farm animals by adhering one on top of another.  The little lamb was nestled next to the cow.
A fun sentiment was stamped on a hand cut flag and adhered in the upper corner of my card.

Happy Father's Day

Hello!  Today I'm sharing a Father's Day card over on the Scrapping Cottage blog featuring the new Country Farm die release.  I love that I was able to use these adorable die cuts for a Father's Day card.

I might have gotten a bit carried with incorporating so many dies into this one card but I couldn't resist the adorable farm scene.  I used basic card stock for all of the die cuts and shaded them with my Oxide Inks.  The die cuts are from the following die sets:  Grass Slimline, Clouds Slimline, Hills Slimline, Country Farm Cows and the Farm Tractor w/Trailer.

A portion of my card base was darkened with some ink and splattered with paint to give the appearance of a dirt road.  I shaded a strip of white card stock with blue ink and adhered it to the card background.  The cloud border was layered on top.
The next step in my design process was to layer the die cut hills on top of the cloud border with the clouds slightly peeking above the hills.  I also prepared the fence for my card by glueing the 2 pieces together.  The grass was adhered along the bottom edge of the fence.

The fence pieces were affixed on my card with the sweet cow behind the fence.  I ended up slightly trimming off the edges of the fence so that it would fit perfectly on my card.
The farm tractor and trailer was placed in the dirt section of my card slightly overlapping the fence.
To finish off my card, I added the 2 milk cans on top of the fence and the stamped sentiment tag in the corner.

Hay, Chickie!

Hello!  It's my design team day over on the Scrapping Cottage blog and I have a card to share featuring the new Country Farm die release!  This release has the most adorable die sets for creating those all occasion cards!

I cut out the sweet Cowgirl Chick, the Nested Stitched Scallop Oval and Oval using card stock.  Everything was inked on the edges to add some depth and dimension.

I found the most adorable paper in my stash which was layered on some kraft card stock. The double ovals were layered on top of my card base.

The cowgirl chick was nestled inside of the oval die cuts as the focal point of my card.  I added some glossy accents to her eyes for a glassy eyed look.

The fun sentiment was stamped in brown ink for a rustic look.  I hand cut the sentiment tag and inked it on the edges.
This card has a bit of a western flair and will be perfect for sending a simple hello!

Have a Roaring Birthday

Hello!  Today I'm sharing an interactive card over on the Scrapping Cottage blog for my design team day!  The new Slimline dies certainly made it easy to create this fun card.

I used the Lift Flaps Stitched Rectangle Slimline die set to cut out the double stitched rectangle and the lift flaps.  I cut out an extra lift flap in white card stock and cut it off on the attached end.  I also cut out the Safari Lion, Safari Rhino, Safari Giraffe, Safari Zebra and Safari Camel.  The grass border is from the Grass Slimline die set.

The safari animals were cut out in both white and colored card stock and shaded with some inks.  The first step in my design process was to layer the lift flap die cut on top of the the grassy background.  This piece was then adhered onto my card base.
Next, the sweet animals were nestled inside of the lift flap frames.  I trimmed the giraffe slightly so that he would fit.
The lion and rhino were adhered on top of the right and left side flaps. 
I stamped a couple of sentiments along with a lion image on the white card stock flap and adhered it to the other flap adding a fun element to my card.
