"Critters on the Farm": Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week

July 12, 2011

Hey there, everyone!  Welcome to the last day of the July Inspiration Week for Lawn Fawn!  Today we are showcasing the latest critter series called "Critters on the Farm".  My favorite thing to do with the critter series stamps is to paper piece them, as I am definitely not a coloring stamper.  So, that is what I did with my card today, and I think it turned out so cute!

I used Card Patterns Sketch #123 to help with the design of my card, and I also created it for ColourQ Challenge #93 {real red, peach parfait, pear pizazz, marina mist, white}.  And I just have to say...in my world, sheep would be even CUTER if they were star patterned.  Tee hee! :)  Here is what I created:
"I Like Ewe Friend!" supplies:
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (vintage cream) 
Paper: October Afternoon (Weathervane: chilly morning &picking pumpkins, Farm Fresh: south forty & hay barn, Cherry Hill: cookie jar, 5 & Dime: wax bottles) & My Mind's Eye (Quite Contrary: engaging gingham)
Stamps: Lawn Fawn (Critters on the Farm & Sophie's Sentiments sets)
Ink: Tsukineko (Versafine: onyx black)
Ribbon: Renaissance by Design
Jewels: Doodlebug Deisgns
Felt/Buttons/Cloud Die: Papertrey Ink
Puff Ball: Darice Inc.
Twine: May Arts
Diecut Machine: Cuttlebug by Provo Craft

Instructions:  Make card from vintage cream cardstock.  Cut plaid paper slightly smaller, round the upper corners and adhere to the front.  Round the top corners of a cloud paper block, and adhere to a vintage cream cardstock square.  Adhere a striped paper strip to the bottom of the cardstock block.  Cut a hill from green patterned paper, adhere to the cardstock block, and then wrap green dotted ribbon around the seam. Stamp the sentiment in the lower right corner, and accent with buttons tied with twine.  Stamp the barn, fence and sheep to patterned papers & cardstock.  Cut out the proper layers and paper piece each one together.  Layer them to the cardstock block, and then accent the sheep's tail with a black puff ball.  Adhere the entire cardstock block to the card front using foam adhesive.  Diecut a cloud from white felt, adhere to the front, and accent with jewels to finish.
