Farm Scene

Good Morning Friends!

I know so many girls and boys love horses.  So I thought it would be fun to create a farm scene using the horse from our Magical Fantasy release.  I have to admit I love horses too!  This card also combines some dies from other releases.  I love mixing the old and new dies!!

Designer Steps:
 1.  Using the Royal Horse die cut out the body in dark brown card stock.  Then cut out the mane and hooves in tan.  Color the tan hooves black with your favorite markers.  Then use TH ink to shade the mane and add a little pink to the inner ear.  Assemble the horse
 2.  Using the Barn and Windmill die cut out the barn in white.  Color the barn pieces using a black and red marker
 3.  Assemble the barn
 4.  Cut a piece of designer cloud paper 4 x 5 1/4 and add the barn and grass
 5.  Using the Picket Fence Border die cut out a white fence.  Using the Spring Grass die cut out to rows of grass in the same green and as the background grass.  Glue down the fence and then the 2 layers of grass as shown.  Then add the horse
6.  Use a white A2 card base cut a slightly smaller piece of red and glue it to the front.  Then add the panel with the horse and barn and your card is complete

Rainbow Birthday!

Good Morning Crafty Friends!

I am continuing to work on my summer birthday cards.  Most of the birthdays fall in June and July so I am trying to stay on top of the special occasions! Today I am using the little rainbow in a shaker card.

Designer Steps:

 1.  Using the Rainbow with Clouds die cut it out on white card stock
 2.  Use your favorite markers and color the rainbow.  I used Copic markers
 3.  Use ink to shade the clouds with blue
 4.  Cut 2 Scallop Stitched Squares in white cards stock.  I used the third from the largest square.  After I cut out Scalloped Square I cut the centers square.  I used the 4th from the largest Double Stitched Square to do that
 5.  Glue clear plastic between the two frame and then glue the rainbow and clouds to the frame
 6.  Add the rhinestones behind the clear window and then pop it up to the card
7.  Using the happy phrase die cut 2 of them out and glue together before gluing it to the card.  Stamp the word Birthday in black the cut out and glue to the card as shown
