YouTube Live REPLAY Coffee and Craft with Liz – Peekaboo Farm. I was so pleased my new order package arrived on Monday afternoon, so I had to pull this stamp set out first. I knew I wanted to ‘play’ with it during my regular Coffee and Craft YouTube Live on Tuesday. These animals are just so cute and I LOVE them. I say they are ‘cute’ but not tooooo cute, not cutesy or cartoon like. For me they are perfect for anyone fun loving, who doesn’t take life, or themselves, too seriously.
The first card I made was a CASE (Copy And Share Everything) of one of the projects in the catalogue, in that I cut a slightly smaller White layer and mounted it at an angle on my card front. I chose to use Polished Pink for the card base as it is a really good foil for the Neutrals I was going to use in the colouring.
I originally intended to leave the sentiment larger, but decided that, while I liked the White Heat Embossing on Basic Black, it felt too ‘heavy’. To solve this, I fussy cut it before adding it with Dimensionals and adding some of the InColor Jewels (have I told you how much I LOVE these?) As well as the little bird on the front of the card, I decided to add it again on the inside to tie the inside to the front.
My second card is quite different. I die cut circles with the Layering Circles Dies in a Soft Suede layer (I had forgotten to add the Picture This die to my order, but have included it in my product list), and then ran it through the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder to mirror the idea of a wall. The circle I chose was just large enough for the heads, but not hooves, of the animals I chose. This piece was layered on some White card and I added pencil to show where the circles would fall. This gave me the guide I needed to stamp the animals.
The colouring was just as simple in this example as in the first, these images don’t call for complicated colouring. I stamped the hooves on a scrap of card and coloured them, before fussy cutting them out and adding them with Dimensionals. I love the look of them hanging their hooves over the edge of the windows.
The picture above gives you a better view of the dimension of those hooves. Who wouldn’t smile at receiving a card like this? It just makes you smile, but you can add an even wider smile if you follow my example for the inside
I’m sorry, but that little ram photo bombing and saying ‘Hello there’ is just such a fun finish (OK, I know I shouldn’t be the one saying this, but it is!). To see these cards being made, simply click on the Video Tutorial to see a replay of the event on Tuesday. I wonder which stamp set I will be using this afternoon for my next Live Crafting session.
