Hello friends! I'm so excited to be helping Taylored Expressions with the launch of the ADORABLE new Farm Fresh Kit! It is full of so many amazing, fun, and whimsical products that are sure to delight all crafters! I've created 3 cards for today's post, so make sure to scroll down to see each one!
This is the kit in its entirety and as you can see, it has 2 fabulous red rubber cling mount stamps, a red rubber gingham background stamp, a set of 3 stencils, coordinating dies for the Farm Fresh Critters stamp set, self adhesive wobblers, envelopes and 6 seals, and a fabulous mesh bag to store all of the contents! You can find the Farm Fresh Kit HERE and you can purchase additional envelop seals in quantities of 10 HERE.
My first two cards are similar in design and feel. I used the Gingham background stamp to create the two panels measuring 4 by 5 1/4 inches. I love the crisp, even impression I get when using red rubber stamps! I also cut two panels slightly smaller to create the scenes for each of the cards.
I did some inkblending using the Here Comes the Sun Stencil (not included in the kit) and then added some Nuvo glitter paste to give the sun rays some sparkle and shine. I set the panels aside to dry and got to to work on the cute farm critters and barn. I decided ahead of time which sentiments I wanted to use which led to which animals I would be using.
I stamped the the barn
Once that was done, I was ready to fill in the scene with the barn and critters. I used the included springy wobblers (I have no clue what the technical name is for these) to attach the head over the foam mounted body. It is such an easy and fun way to add an interactive element to your designs! The recipient will be do surprised to see this fun addition!
The seals that are included in the kit correspond with the different critters so I picked the cow seal for this card. I thought the blue envelope, which is also included in the kit, was the perfect complement.
And of course the chicken card gets the cute "hey, Chickie" seal! These are so much fun and just add the little bit of "extra" to truly make this happy mail! Also, I added some Nuvo Crystal Glaze to the beak and red head piece of the chick for some added shine.
This little piggy was calling my name for this 3rd and final card. I kept the background the same as the previous 2 cards, but stamped it in bright blue instead! I thought the blue was a nice contrast to the pink pig!
I chose a landscape card for this design which enable me to use the cute picket fence image that is included in the kit. I stamped the pic and fence using black ink and then colored them with Copic markers. I die cut them using the included die cuts and set them aside while I got to work on the background.
I used two of the three grass stencils for this particular card and the Set the Scene Cloud Stencils (not included in the kit) for the sky. The sentiment is stamped in black right over the clouds.
This little piggy got some glaze on her snout and ears for some fun shine! I used another wobbler for this cutie so she wiggles and shakes!
I used two foam squares on the body since the wobbler elevates the head a little more than regular foam squares. I wanted these critters to look proportionate. I added the fence as well using additional foam squares.
This kit is so much fun and these cards are perfect for this time of year! I stamped the inside of each of the 3 cards as well using the sentiment set.
Of course I had to add the pig seal to this envelope! So stinking cute! I had so much fun using this kit! It is limited quantity so make sure to grab yours today! You can purchase it HERE! Thanks for fluttering by!
