Hi, Teresa here to introduce you to a whole new series: Christmas All Year Long! This past Christmas I actually ran out of Christmas cards. And then, unfortunately, I did not have the mojo to make the kind of cards I wanted to make to finish up. Well, not this year. I am going to make sure I have enough. And I think I am going to address them as well so they are all ready to go. So once a month I will have a video for you as I begin this series. Thanks so much for joining me today!
We at Scrapping for Less are so glad that LeeAnn has joined our team. She is a fellow Floridian and says this about herself.
My name is LeeAnn McKinney, I am wife, mom, mom in law and mimi. I spend most of my days/night in my craft room, online and watching Netflix, Acorn or NASCAR. I started crafting back in the 90’s, took a break after mom passed away and found my crafty side again when my grandson was on the way. I have been a daily crafter since 2014, and on design teams since 2015.
Greetings friends and fellow crafters, LeeAnn here with my first project as a member of the Scrapping For Less design team. Let me say this is going to be a fun ride.
So, today I am highlighting the “Hay There” stamp set from Lawn Fawn, available in the Scrapping For Less Store. I also used the “Down on the Farm” 6x6 paper pad and mini icons from Doodlebug. I am always amazed how well Lawn Fawn and Doodlebug work together.
So, now that you know what I used, how about showing you what I made.
After stamping and coloring the cute animals I decided this had to be a box card, so that everything would fit and have the ability to be seen.
I used the following Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers for coloring: Cow Spots, and all animal hooves- True Black Cow face- FS5 Cow horns IG5 Goat- IG3, IG6 Sheep- IG2, IG6 Pig- PP3, PP6 Horse- GB1, GB5, EB3, EB4, TN4 Fence- EB5, TN3
Once my coloring was complete I cut the images and set to making my box card.
The box card base is 11.5″ wide and 5.5″ tall. each section is 2.75″ wide. The base is scored up at 2.75″ to create 3 flaps that will fold down. The 4th side was left tall to create the back side when standing. I cut three 2.5″ x 2.5″ and used my Corner Chomper to round the edges. I used double stick tape to adhere the panels. The back panel is 2.5″ x 3.5″ so that it will cover the panel down past where my farm critters are. The panels my critters are on 3.5″ wide and 3″ tall. I added a .5″ panel of the same wildflower field pattern paper to each panel to simulate the critters standing out in the pasture. On the left panel is a mud pit, Apple Tree and apple from the Mini Icon Set, and the Pig from the stamp set that I colored. The front panel is a windmill, flowers and truck from the Mini Icon Set. On the right side is a bail of hay, apple tree and apple from the Mini Icon Set and Cow from the stamp set. The photo image on the back panel is from an icon sheet in the 6″x6″ paper pad.
I hope you have enjoyed my project today. Please stop by the Scrapping For Less website and see the items I have highlighted as well as the other awesome items available.
