On the Farm Card with Blending Brushes

Friends, today I've got for you the 2nd card in our series featuring the On the Farm Bundle and Day at the Farm DSP. This card focuses on the basics - stamps, ink, and paper. It's amazing how that simple combination can make a very impressive card:


To create this card, I started by stamping the sentiment from the On the Farm stamp set in Garden Green Ink onto a Basic White Cardstock scrap. I cut chevron shapes in the ends. Then, with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, I stamped onto Basic White Cardstock scraps the silo, barn, pigs, and chicken. I used Soft Suede Stampin' Blends to colour the silo and barn, then to make highlighting dots on the chicken. I used Petal Pink Stampin' Blends to colour the pigs. I cut all of them out with On the Farm Dies.

Next, I cut a 3" x 4 1/4" Basic White Cardstock panel. Using Blending Brushes in a circular motion with a fairly light hand, and starting just off the edge of the paper, I added Balmy Blue Ink to 2/3 of the panel and Pear Pizzazz Ink to the other 1/3 of the panel. I stamped two sets of hills in Pear Pizzazz and two sets of clouds in Balmy Blue. Then I added all the die cuts and the stamped label, securing them with Stampin' Dimensionals or Stampin' Seal (silo only). I tied a bow in a double length of Linen Thread and added it to the label with a Mini Glue Dot.

To assemble the card, I attached a 4" x 5 1/4" Day at the Farm DSP panel to a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" Pear Pizzazz Cardstock card base. Then I added the stamped panel with Stampin' Dimensionals.
