This card uses the adorable chicken from the set without the wobble springs. I did a little paper piecing on this one and some stamp masking. . . Begin by making an A2 cardbase from Sugar Cube cardstock. . Cut a second piece of Sugar Cube to 4″ x 5.25″ Stamp the barn and the fence on the cardstock positioned about 1/2″ from the bottom edge. Stamp the barn and fence on masking paper and cut out (sorry about the fence… I used an Xacto knife to trim that out. ) Apply masks to barn and fence. . Using Cookie Monster ink blend around the edges of the scene fading toward the middle and toward the grass area. . Use the grass stencil with Granny Smith and Cilantro ink to up the grass. Stamp the barn on red dot paper from the Rainbow Brights Paper Pack. Cut out the doors and the body of the barn. Glue to the barn. Add shadows with Copic markers (I used BV23 and BV25 ). Color the hay loft, trim of barn and fence with Copics (I used Y08, Y28, W9, W7, W5, W1, 0 ). . Stamp the chicken on Sugar Cube with Oreo ink. Color with Copics. I used Y08, Y04, Y02, Y38, Y35 ) Die cut with coordinating dies. Stamp the sentiment in the sky with Oreo ink. Attach the chicken body flush to the card and the head with foam tape. .

We've been blessed to have such great designers joining us for our newest kit release! This card comes to us from Mindy Eggen! . . I have a soft spot for Gingham backgrounds. For my first card, I stamped the background onto Mulled Wine cardstock with Chocolate Truffle ink. . . On a strip of white cardstock, I ink blended the Grass stencil and added my critters that I colored with copic markers. I love how the heads are separate so you can either add bobbles behind them for a fun interactive card or pop up with foam squares. And I love a good pun! Hay there! . . @mindyeggendesign @tayloredexpressions #tayloredexpressions #farmfreshjoy #farmfreshkit #cardmaking
For this card, I stamped the barn, colored, and masked off the barn. Then I stenciled the grass with the stencil in the kit and pulled out the Here Comes the Sun Stencil from my stash to stencil the sun rays. . . I attached the head of the chicken to a Mini Wobble Spring so the head bounces around! So cute! Behind the chicken I added the fence then stamped the sentiments. . .

The fun thing about our Farm Fresh Kit is that you can create your cards as detailed or as simple as you'd like. This card from Laurie Willison is clean and simple, yet super cute! . . I colored all 4 critters and die cut them. I added them all to the card front along with the Wobble Springs. . . Love that fun little interactive detail. . . I stamped the sentiment a little off center to finish off the card. . . @laurie_willison @tayloredexpressions #tayloredexpressions #farmfreshjoy #farmfreshkit #cardmaking
As soon as my kit arrived, I got busy coloring images with Karin Brushmarkers, then the cards came together lickety-split! . . These quirky chicks are adorable, and I kind of feel like they are crafty chick friends hanging out together, because look at their fun rainbow banner for their chicken coop! . . The wobble heads included in your kit make for fun interaction without any extra fuss. LOVE THAT! . .

First up is this cutie little horse out getting some sun by the barn! This finished card is an A2 kraft card base. I layered some gingham (you know me ) and some red cardstock. I used the stencils from the kit to create green rolling hills. I used a previously released clouds die to make the sky. Hay there! . . The stamp sets are all red rubber and they stamp like a dream. If you've never stamped with TE rubber stamps you are missing out. Crisp and perfect images every time. The animals have two parts, the body and the head. So you can make them wobble!! The barn and the horse were colored with Copic Markers. Love the sentiments! . . Here's a close up of the new stencils. I used two shades of green ink and then added a few ink splatters for effect. . . The kit includes action wobbles that fit under the heads of the animals. EEK. I love an action wobble!!! . . The images are super fun and easy to color - goes quickly. I added a few white gel pen accents on my coloring and white splatters on the barn. . .

This little piggy was calling my name for this card. . . I used the Gingham background stamp to create the panel 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 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!

I stamped in Versamark Ink and embossed with TE White Embossing Powder. . . Next I used the Stitched Circle Stacklets and cut a circle directly into the card front. To create the scene behind the circle I stamped the barn in Oreo Ink, colored with Copic Markers and then masked off the barn. I added the grass with the Set the Scene - Grass Stencil Strips set that is included in the kit.

Well now, this zebra Grumpling has every right to be crabby on this card created by Jen Shults! . . Not only has the wine spilled…. it’s RED wine that will probably STAIN! Now this Grumpling will probably have to spend time Googling red wine stain removal online all afternoon and won’t that be a treat!? . . "For my card I decided to use the zebra and the wine bottle/wine glass. I started by stamping the images on Sugar Cube with Oreo ink and coloring with Copic Markers. I then die cut the images with the coordinating dies. . . I then decided to keep it simple by ink blending a Cookie Monster and Peapod rectangle on Sugar Cube cardstock using the Masking Stencils – Rectangles and blender brushes. I don’t recommend doing it this way but I attached the images first and then stamped the sentiment at the top – SERIOUSLY – don’t do this. But it’s just the way my brain works sometimes. . . After the sentiment was stamped I decided the bottle needed to be spilling out on the ground so I used a deep red Copic marker to add spilled wine. For a little shine I drew in two small lines and a dot with a white gel pen. . . And that’s it! Super quick and simple and definitely ready for the mail." . .

"I was inspired to create a pocket scrapbook layout of my cats using the new cat products! I have three cats - Lily, Nina, and Hazel. This scrapbook is for 3" x 8" layouts and I did one 3" x 8" layout along with a few 3" x 4" journal cards. . . The title card on the top left uses the same stencil as I used on the card on Sugar Cube cardstock and then I added the paw prints with Toffee ink without masking the stenciled cats and one of the sentiments from the Whiskers stamp set stamped in Oreo ink. . . The journal card on the lower left is stenciled with the Puppy Love Layered stencil (this stencil is perfect for cat projects too! ) using Honey and Sugar Cube inks on Honey cardstock. I added a Instax photo of my cat Lily on this card and added a sentiment from the Simple Strips - Meow stamp and one of the cat die cuts from the Silhouettes - Cats die collection. . . On the 3" x 8" layout on the right I stamped the paw prints from the Whiskers stamp set in Sugar Cube ink on Toffee cardstock. I added the photos of my other two cats, Nina and Hazel, along with a few more sentiments from the Simple Strips - Meow stamp and a few more cat die cuts. I also added names to each of the photos that I typed with my typewriter on Toffee cardstock. The tab at the top of the page has a single paw print that I stenciled using the Puppy Love Layered stencil." . . Pocket scrapbook designed by Heather Nichols ( @pinefeather on IG ) . .
