Happy Monday, crafty friends! Here we are on the last day of August already, can you believe that? The months are just zipping by, and right about now it feels like the years are flying by, too. My boy, Pete, is turning 25 in just two short days. How on earth can that even be possible?
At the beginning of July, a new set of card sketches was released on the PageMaps website, and I was very excited to be able to make some project samples using the new designs. Today I have one last July CardMaps card to share. Here is the fun sketch that I used, and my take on it featuring some adorable stamps from Hello Bluebird.
This is the seriously cute Party On the Farm stamp and die set from Hello Bluebird. I know I often mention what a sucker I am for sweet critters, but these little farm animals in particular melt my heart. Both of my parents grew up on farms, and I have very happy memories of childhood days spent on my aunt’s farm in Minnesota. So I just couldn’t resist.
As you can see, I very closely followed the sketch. The images were stamped and colored with Copic markers. I used a pierced circle to die cut the farm image, and then popped the animals up with foam dots to add some depth to the scene.
