Stick People Go to the Farm!!

Good Evening again everyone! I have one last sneakie peekie preview using a fun set by Gina K called "Funny Farm" and this set is CA-UTE! I love each image, you can create so many fun projects with this set and GUESS WHAT? It's also the card kit of the month so that means when you buy the stamp set you get full sized sheet cardstocks - white and black; 1/2 sheet: navy, little boy blue, red hot, innocent pink, sweet corn, and green apple, 1 yard 5/8" black gingham ribbon,  silver brads and an Instruction sheet!!

Now make sure to read down to see whatever designers are previewing tonight and if you missed my other sneak peek using "Fanciful Fall" just scroll down to the next post!

Funny Farm

I adore this set--the images are cute and there are sooooo many images to use and create different projects.  Plus I love the name, lol, my house feels like a funny farm sometimes with teenagers running in and out and 7 animals barking or screeching all at once!  On my card tonight I used ONLY what is included in the Card Kit (that you get FREE when you buy this stamp set) except for one cheat (sorry couldn't help myself, lol) the large red button was from my stash.  Please forgive me for my cheating, hee hee!


I had fun choosing which images to use on my card and I wanted to keep it clean with only a few colors.  I love the graphic quality of the gingham ribbon agains the black cardstock that I embossed with a CB folder.  I used the silver brads included in the kit---TIP: I don't like to punch holes in my cards unless I absolutely have to so what I do is I clip the ends/shanks off the brads using my Tonic Scissors (those babies will cut most anything--luv them).  Then I attach them to my project with glue dots.  I used the Bow Easy to make my bow and then I topped it with my red button (not included, lol) and tied some black thread thru it and topped it with another brad.


I kept the colors simple so that the reds and blacks really popped--I even colored most of the background fields in shades of gray so the images in the front pop more (colored with Copics)!  The girl farmer was cut out & popped up with dimensionals and I added some stickles to the trees, her pocket and silo.  Isn't that cow cute--I want to squish him, lol!!  Hope you enjoyed my Funny Farm this evening--I sure had fun making this!
