Farming Fun and Coordinating Dies
My cards today don’t feature the new slimline dies but I promise I have some fun ideas with those later on in the week. Today I have two cards featuring Farming Fun and some other awesome Newton’s Nook products. Here’s the first one.
To create this card, I stamped, colored and die cut my truck. Then took a white cardbase and inked some dingy green and brown inks on it. I cut two strips of white cardstock – 4.25×1.5 and 4.25×2.5 and inked one edge brown. Then I splattered the panels with dark brown ink. I stamped my sentiment in the bottom right corner of the bigger one and attached the panels with foam tape. Then I attached the truck the same way and moved on to finishing touches.
I kept those simple with just some glossy accents on the window and “chrome” parts of my farm truck. I absolutely LOVE the puns in this stamp set. They are all so fun. Along with those awesome images.
I was having so much fun with this set that I just kept going with a second card.
For this card, I chose one of the tractors and that cool trailer to color up and die cut. Then I die cut one of the Framework dies and a circle from Circle Frames. I taped of the framework cutout so I could ink only the center with my distress oxides – tumbled glass, mermaid lagoon and peacock feathers – and spritzed it with water. With the circle, I used the Sunscape stencil and some dye inks. I laid out my card to get an idea where I wanted to stamp my sentiments and then stamped them in black ink.
Moving on to assembly, I popped my inked panel up with foam tape on a kraft cardbase and then popped the circle up on that. The tractor and trailer are popped up with foam squares and then I added white gel pen accents. Last, I finished the card off with some glossy accents on those “chrome” pieces again.
This set is so much fun and makes it so easy to create boy cards of all kinds! It’s definitely going to be a staple in my crafting!
