Barnyard Animal Card

Barnyard Animal Card by Becki Adams for @scrapbookexpo #SSBE2018 #ssbeblog #stamping #cardmaking #handmadecard #lawnfawn

Hey there Stamp & Scrapbook Expo friends, Becki here to share a barnyard animal card with you. I created this card with the adorable new “Hay There” stamp set from Lawn Fawn. I grew up on a farm so cute farm themed cards will always win my heart. This stamp set is full of the most adorable little barnyard animals.

The card base for this card is 6×6. Typically, I don’t create cards that are that big but I wanted to fit as many little barnyard animals on this card as I could.

The front of the card has a large window cut out. This cute scalloped window made creating a farm scene so FUN! The Outside In Stitched Scalloped Square die made cutting the window so easy and I love the scalloped and stitched detail on the card front.

I adhered the cute little goats and grass die cuts on the front of the card. The rest of the scene is adhered to the inside of the card. When I do write the message for this card, I will write on the back of the card. 

When it comes to coloring stamped images, I always color with my Tombow Dual Brush pens and blend with a water brush. I love the water color effect that I get with this coloring combination. Its an easy and inexpensive way to color stamped images.

All of the patterned paper I used on this card came from my scrap basket. I love it when I can pull a few scraps together and make a cute card. 

Do you love creating cards with barnyard animals? If you do, this cute stamp set needs to be in your craft room! You’ll love creating your own barnyard animal cards. Thank you for stopping by the Stamp & Scrapbook Expo blog today. I’ll see you again tomorrow for a fun Freebie Friday giveaway.

    I love this card! Do you use watercolor paper when stamping or regular card stock? I hope they get these stamps back in stock soon.

      Hi Lisa, thank you for your sweet comments. I try to use watercolor paper when possible for this coloring method. If I don’t have watercolor paper on hand, I used a heavy smooth cardstock. If I use cardstock, I try to use less water. I hope that makes sense. Thank you for stopping by the Stamp & Scrapbook Expo blog. ~Becki

    Very cute card. I don’t live on a farm. But as a kid my grandmother had property in the country. These stamp set is so cute. Love Lawn Fawn!

    What a cute card! I tend to use colored pencils instead of water colors and still love the looks either of these provide.
