Hi there! I’m popping in this afternoon to share a card I created last night with the Lawn Fawn Tiny Farm cuties and the Build-a-Barn dies. I just added these to my stash and had so much fun playing with them! I can’t wait to make a reveal wheel card with them next.
I stamped and colored all 4 characters from the Tiny Farm set with my copic markers. Then I used the coordinating dies to cut them all out. Next, I cut the pieces for the Build-a-barn and used liquid glue to put it all together.
I wanted to try something different for the background of my card so I chose 3 different scraps of yellow cardstock and one green and cut the strips for the Simple Stripes Portrait die. I adhered them to a panel with liquid glue two strips of each yellow and ending with the green on the bottom for my ground. I wasn’t a huge fan of how flat it all looked so I took my distress oxide blender for spiced marmalade and lightly inked up the edges of the yellow with just the ink left on it from last time I used it. Then I did the same for the green area with rustic wilderness. Then I splattered gold watercolor all over the panel.
I added the chicken to the window opening in the top and replaced the red cardstock that cut out of it behind him to help secure him in place. Then I added the cow with liquid glue, added foam tape to the back of the barn and popped it in place. I added foam squares behind the farmer and pig and added them next.
I wanted a larger sentiment than the one in the Tiny Farm set so I pulled out Hay There and used the same one from that set to stamp and heat emboss on black cardstock. I trimmed it into a strip and added it to the top left with foam squares.
For finishing touches I came in with the same gold watercolor as the splatters and painted the star decoration on the barn. Then I thought it would be fun to add a little speech bubble by the chicken in the top to make sure the recipient’s eye is drawn that direction to see the hiding critter.
I stamped and heat embossed that and the heart inside from Hay There and cut it out with the coordinating die. After popping it up with a foam square I also painted that heart with the gold watercolor to tie everything together.
Isn’t this adorable?!? I’m so tickled with the way it turned out. I just makes me smile!
