On the Farm - February 2023 Class

Happy February!  Here are the cards from my On the Farm class.  All of the cards feature the Flowers & More designer series paper from the new mini catalog (stampin’ rewards item, pg. 90) plus something from the farm (little pigs, geese, carrots) and a princess or something for girl’s day.  Recipes are included with each project and the supply details are listed at the end of this post.  Thanks for stopping by!


Card 1: Silly Goose

This card features the Silly Goose stamp set along with the Flowers & More designer series paper (DSP).  It is a panel card and instead of making each panel the same size, the left panel was sized larger (3 ¼” wide) to feature more of the DSP.  The layering circles dies were used to cut out the white and blackberry bliss circles.  Only attach the circles to the left side panel—you can secure using dimensionals.  Having the hearts thought bubble helps to finish it off-from the Conversation Bubbles Bundle.  Note: The image of the goose in the inner tube also fits in the circle.

Card 2: Birthday Piggy

This cute little pig is sending birthday wishes from his scooter.  The circle window is cut out of the card front and then nests with the matching circle size attached inside the card.  The inside layer also features a Z-fold (see photo below for assembly).  The die used to cut out the pigs was originally available during a special in September 2022, but now is available on the Clerance Rack at a discount while supplies last.  If you don’t have the dies, you can just cut it out using snips.  Note: The little pig with the cake and balloon also fits the circle.

Assembly tips:

  • Before cutting the circle from the card front, attach the DSP but only secure it along the outside edges. Then cut out the circle using the 2 7/8” sized die.  You can then separate the DSP from the Starry Sky cardstock.
  • For the white cardstock that will go on the inside of the card, fold on the scored marks forming a Z-fold (see photo). Then attach it to the inside of the card.
  • Close the card so that you can see the white through the circle. Attach the Starry Sky circle that you cut out in the first step to only the right side of the white cardstock that is showing through the circle (the top Z fold).  Then when you open the card, the Z fold can fully open up.

  • Stamp Set: This Birthday Piggy
  • Dies: Playful Piggy Dies (available on the Clearance Rack while supplies last), Layering Circles
  • Flowers & More Designer Series Paper (mini catalog stampin’ rewards choice) 4 x 5 ¼”

Card 3: Happy Carrots

Who thought carrots could be cute?  Just add some faces and they are!  The carrots are from the Thanks a Bunch Sale-A-Bration stamp set and the faces are from the Taco Fiesta stamp set.  I just used 2 of the 5 facial expressions.  What can you add a face to next?

Card 4: Princess/Happy Girls Day

Girls Day is coming up and this kokeshi doll princess brought back memories of girls day dolls—remember the ones in the glass case with their intricate kimono, hairstyles and adornments?  This is a much simplified version and was made using punches. 

  • Tulip Builder Punch – For crown, face, and hair
  • Vintage Bottle Punch – For body and dress

Place the face in the lower section of the tulip (not the middle).  You can draw or stamp it—I used a face from the retired Cute Fruit stamp set.  Then give her rosy cheeks using the light Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blend.

For the dress, I used a print from the Flowers & More DSP.  Get different looks by using another DSP print and different color hair, along with coordinating cardstock colors.  I cut a V neck using snips but you can make it rounded or another design.
