Down on the Farm Class Kit

(click on photo for a more detailed view)

Welcome back to GinaK's Blast from the Past blog hop week!  While many of the other designers are sharing stamp sets designed by Theresa and Rupa, I'm sharing another card kit with you that I designed for the adorable Down on the Farm stamp set.  It's one of the first GinaK stamp set I purchased and still one of my favorites!

The Down on the Farm Class kit includes:
  • GinaK cardstock - heavy white, smokey slate, bubblegum pink, ocean mist, creme de menthe
  • Silver eyelets
  • 1 yard 5/8" pink gingham ribbon
  • Printed instruction sheet with measurements to complete the 5 projects shown in photo above
Now that those details are out of the way, let's look at each project in a bit more detail...

First up, is the sheep tag that would be perfect for a card front for a little birthday boy.  It could also work as a tag for a gift bag, by punching a hole at the top of the tag and threading some string through it and tied to the gift bag's handle.  I love the numbers cuttlebug folder as I always think of 'counting sheep' when I see an image of a lamb.

Tag Details
Stamps: Down on the Farm (GKD)
Ink: Black Memento
Cardstock: GinaK - white, smokey slate, ocean mist, creme de menthe, bubblegum
Other: Copic markers, liquid applique, clear glitter, heat tool, corner rounder,  silver eyelets, scallop square nestability

The sheep image in all my samples was colored a bit with copic markers.  To add a fluffy feel to the sheep, I applied liquid applique to the wool section and sprinkled with clear glitter before heating it with a heat tool.  The glitter helps the applique to puff up nicely without getting too crazy as well as adds some sparkle - which is always fun. To see Gina's video on how to use liquid applique, please check out her video here.

This next card is pretty basic, so the emphasis is on this adorable little piggy.  I rounded a couple of corners and used the seeing spots embossing folder to help reinforce the 'roundness' of the little birthday pig.

The next card is my favorite of this bunch - look at how cute those animals are peeking out their 'windows'!  I stamped the images on white cardstock and used a 1 3/8" square punch to punch out the section of the image that I wanted to show.

***********

This little cow card cracks me up - that sentiment is too funny, isn't it?  This card could easily be made for all the other images as well, as the sketch is generic enough to work with all the farm animals in this set.

Cardstock: GinaK - white, black, bubblegum pink, creme de menthe
Other: corner rounder, spellbinder plain and petite scallop circle dies, paper piercer, copic markers, stardust stickles, silver eyelets, 1/4" hole punch & eyelet setter, pink gingham ribbon

**********

Last, but certainly not least is this floral wheelbarrow card that I decided to leave sentiment free, so that it could be used for any occasion.  The focal image was stamped over and over on the green cardstock in Versamark ink and embossed with clear embossing powder.  Then, I used some green scraps to create a bit of grass for the stamped wheelbarrow, so that it didn't look like it was 'floating' off the paper.

this is a really cute set, one I don't have, (hmmm, might need to get it with my next pub bonus!)
I love these colors together, my favorite is the sheep card, what a good idea to use the counting Cuttlebug folder with it (which I do have), I never thought of that for sheep, but how perfect, hee hee!
