Rise and shine! We have a brand new farm animals set, which includes a hen, some chicks, a piglet, grass, and a sun. This is a bright and cheery set that brings back memories of when days were simpler (and started earlier!).
Stamps - Farmyard Animals stamp set
White card stock - 4.5 x 5.5 inches
Yellow card stock - 4.3.5 x 5 inches
White card stock scrap
Versacolor Topaz, Bark, Paprika, Pinecone, Evergreen, Bamboo, Canary, and Split Pea
Tools and Embellishments -
RST positioning template - Arches
Embossing folder of your choice
Use scissors to cut the edges of the pre-measured White paper in a wavy fashion. Then run this paper through the embossing folder. Fold. Set aside for now.
Take the Yellow card stock piece and, using the Sun stamp and Split Pea ink, stamp a random pattern. Glue this piece to the card base and then attach the ribbon. Set aside for now.
Take the White scrap and stamp the following:
Stamp the Hen in Topaz ink. Stamp the Hen again, this time in Pinecone and Evergreen (stamp one half of the Hen in Pinecone and, before stamping, ink the other half with Evergreen ink).
Stamp the Chicks in Paprika ink.
Stamp the Piglet in Bark ink.
Stamp the Grass in Evergreen ink. Stamp the Grass again, this time in Bamboo ink. Then dot with the colored marker to make pretend flowers in the grass.
When the ink has dried, line up the stamped scene in the largest Arch on the positioning template and, using Canary ink and a piece of blending foam, make a silhouette. Trim the arch shape out with scissors and use double-sided foam tape to attach the arch to the card base.
Garnish with another piece of Ribbon.
Until next time, Happy Stamping from Susan and the rest of the gang at Rubber Stamp Tapestry!
