Hey there! I've been stumped over this weeks S&S MWT "On the Farm" and a little amazed that I had no farm animal stamps!! I dug through every stamp and even took a peak at my dusty Cricut Cartridges. Nothing! I probably spent the entire day Wednesday just looking for ideas online when I came across punched art animals. I didn't have all the punches used for most of the animals so I improvised with the sheep. =) Lots of fun but lots of work when you make 6 of these cards!!
Aren't they cute? I always aim to make simple cards and although it may look so, this one was not!! I hand cut the grass and had a lot of playing around with my punches to get things right. Here's my helpful tip: When doing parts like the front hair on the sheep, punch out a full scallop and attach one of those tiny strips of scraps from trimming paper to the back of it and use it like a handle to position back in your punch. You'll get a perfect punch and not have to stress over wiggling it around. Hope that made sense?! I used a small scallop punch and small circle. The 'ears' are a circle out of my daughters punches cut in half...not quite sure of its size but the brand was EK Success. I used the SU Top Note Die and some gorgeous Twine from the Twinery!! I love it's look and thought it went with the feeling of the card.
