Herd of … Farm Animals?

Masculine cards are always tricky for me…how much sparkle to add? I did manage to incorporate a little bit of glitter paper so that was a win!

Images and sentiments

  • I used images from Katzelkraft Farm Animals and coloured them with Copics. I know sheep aren’t blue and chickens aren’t green but hey they look good!
  • Lawn Fawn Reveal Wheel Speech Bubbles are die cut out of glitter paper and coloured cardstock.
  • Sentiments are from the Reveal Wheel and Spring sentiment sets.

Other items

  • I used the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Popup with Grassy Hills add on cut out of grass themed patterned paper.
  • The front of the card was simply Distress Inks blended over My Favorite Things Clouds and Grass stencils.

Thanks for stopping by and have a good day.

Casology Challenge #261

When I saw this cue card I knew I had at least three stamp sets I wanted to use soooo…here they are.  There are 4 in total I’ve entered into the Casology Challenge #261 so I’ll try to keep the words to a minimum.

Week 261 - Safari

Card No 1

Spritzed cardstock with Heidi Swapp Color Shine ‘Citron’, diecut with leaves from Kaisercraft ‘Poinsettia’ and adhered the negative pieces of the diecut.  Monkey and sentiment from My Favorite Things ‘Sweet Safari’.


Card No 2

Cardstock spritzed with Heidi Swapp Color Shine ‘Citron’. Background diecut (brand unknown) and used all of the pieces.  Cut the die cut down with the My Favorite Things ‘Stitched Dome Stax’.  The leaves were die cut from Kaisercraft ‘Poinsettia’ but this time used the positive cuts in white card.  Giraffe and sentiment are from WPlus9 ‘Party Animal’ and coloured using Derwent Inktense Pencils.Safari-1-3


Card No 3

I’ve been wanting to use this elephant from Katzelkraft ‘Les Jungles’ and wanted to keep it simple. Coloured with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.  Sentiment is from Gerda Steiner ‘Monster Fun’.


And finally Card No 4

Die cut Craft Wise ‘Scalloped circle’ out of American Craft cardstock.  Placed some DCWV zebra patterned paper behind and once again used the Kaisercraft ‘Poinsettia’ leaves.  Zebra and sentiment is My Favorite Things ‘Sweet Safari’ coloured with Copics.  The sentiment is heat embossed in Hero Arts White as it needs a bit of dimension when stamped on textured card.


So that’s it…hope you liked them.
