Summer is full of birthdays in our family...and that is just the excuse I need to get out my stamps and come up some fun new cards...and my family knows that I really can't resist a good pun!
Thought I would share this fun little card with you...it is square 4.25 x 4.25. I used a couple of Papertrey Ink stamp sets and Dies: On The Farm and Hello Sunshine.
The cows in the "herd" were die cut with the On The Farm dies from another piece of My Mind's Eye paper...I love how they look kind of "mod-ish!" To make them stand out against the background, I took a Copic marker and just ran it around the edge...instant POP!
Finally, the sun was created by stamping some rays from the Hello Sunshine stamp set and then punched a half circle with a 2" scallop punch. I will definitely be using this combination for some other scenes...and I am totally in love with those spotted cows!
Have a great week...and try doing some "unexpected" thing during your creative time!
I am entering this card in the Make It Monday Challenge (stamping on patterned paper) over at Papertrey Ink.
