3 Countries, 3 Designers, 1 Stamp Set – Mini Blog Hop!

Welcome to this mini blog hop, showcasing the stamp set “Critters on the Farm” by Lawn Fawn! You should have come from Isha’s lovely blog. To start from the beginning, and to see how you can get some extra chances to win the prize we are offering, please go to Marie’s blog for more information.

Here’s the card that I made for our cute little hop. It’s a little different from my usual bright and happy style, but I had fun with my distress inks. :)

My best friend for this card was my roll of Eclipse Masking Tape. It worked like magic to mask off the hay stacks when I was stamping the wall of them. I highly recommend this product if you like to make scenes of little critters.

We have been sponsored by Lawn Fawn, and we are giving away a “Critters on the Farm” stamp set to one lucky winner. Be sure to comment here for your chance to win as well on the other blogs! I’m the last stop on our mini hop, but you can go to Marie’s website to start from the beginning.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I’ll be back tomorrow with a fun video that’s been requested literally dozens of times. :)

    The Lawn Fawn critters are so cute. I love the scene you created but it looks complicated. The pun is cute too.Thanks

    • It wasn’t that complicated, I promise. To get the hay bales in the background, I just stamped from the top right corner down the right side, covering up each one with a mask as I went. Then I started at the next row in (to the left of it) and kept covering them up with masks as I went. So in the process, it looked like this:
      0 0 0 X X
      0 0 0 0 X
      0 0 0 0 X
      0 0 0 0 X
      0 = not stamped yet, X = stamped and covered
      Then I just inked over the whole thing and colored in the spaces between the bales with a brown marker for emphasis. The only tricky part was figuring out where to stamp first. :) Thanks for stopping by and for your sweet compliments. I hope you try this look soon!

    Absolutely adorable! Thank you for sharing!

  39. Kelley

    Cute card, I love the stacked bales! However, in our barn, I don’t allow mice. Unfortuately, the mice don’t listen to me. I haven’t seen them visiting with the pigs, so I guess I should be happy with that!

    I’ve been looking at this stamp set for months. I think I really do need it.
