July Card Class "On the Farm"

Hope you are having a great summer!  Thought it would be a good time to take a trip to the farm.  We’ll be making cards that include animals you’d find on a farm-a pig, a dog, a cow and a rabbit.  Plus, a pick-up truck to transport them.  Recipes are included with each project and the supply details are listed at the end of this post.  Thanks for stopping by!

20190720 July class cards

 

Card 1: Hula Dancing Pig

This card uses a pig from the stamp set This Little Piggy.  The image originally included a flower, so I removed it by cutting around the rubber stamp.  We gave her an island touch by adding a frosted flower embellishment colored with a Stampin’ Blend Cherry Cobbler Dark marker.  The skirt is just a strip of granny apple green snipped like grass.  Then one of the most popular stamp sets from last year, Tropical Chic, was used for the sentiment and hibiscus flowers in the background.

Card 2: Dog Riding Pick-Up Truck

This pick-up truck was stamped on Granny Apple Green and cut out with snips.  The window of the truck was also cut out.  Then the truck was accented with Stampin’ Blends and the tires were colored black.  The hubcaps were made from silver foil by punching circles from it.  The sentiment and the dog were stamped on the whisper white background.  For easier placement, I put both stamps on the stamparatus.  To stamp the heart, a clear block was used.  Then I attached the cut-out truck using dimensionals.  This cute little dog looks so happy riding in the back of this truck!
