Cutest Cows, Days to Remember, Birthday Card, Stampin' Up!


Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have another "Cute Cows" card to share with you. This is a fun stamp set and I love adding that wiggling piece behind it to make it a more interactive card. Please read on to see how I made today's card.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. The Designer Series Paper (DSP) is from the "Be Mine" 12" x 12" package. It's nice to be able to use the Valentine's Day DSP for other card occasions. I hate being stuck with DSP that is designated for a certain occasion. Versatility is what it's all about for me. I cut that piece of DSP 4" x 5-1/4".  I had taped it to the front of the card base. I had done this a couple of weeks ago and set it aside. 

I also found the stitched square on my table and thought I'd work it into this card too. It's from the "Stylish Shapes" set and was cut on a scrap piece of Basic White card stock. Sometimes I like finding pieces on my worktable that I can use on a card but I forget what sets they come from and I have to do research! On this square I scrubbed on some Granny Apple Green on the bottom and Soft Sky on the top using my Blending Brushes. I stamped some grass using Granny Apple Green ink. Then I cut a 2-5/8" x 2-5/8" piece of Daffodil Delight card stock. I taped the squares together and then taped it to the front of the card about 1/4" from the top and side edges.

The words are from the "Days to Remember" set and were stamped using black Memento ink on a scrap piece of Basic White card stock. I punched them out using the "Double Oval" punch. Using the same punch I also punched out the scalloped oval in Daffodil Delight card stock. I taped the ovals together. Dimensionals were added to the back and the piece was set in place on the front of the card.

The cow was stamped using black Memento ink and was punched out. I colored in the spot with my Basic Black marker and the nose with my Petal Pink marker. I glued on my wiggle spring piece using the Tombow Mono glue and pressed it on the cow's head. I let it sit for a minute and then I added glue to the bottom of the piece and set the whole thing on the front of the card, over the upper part of the cow's body. And that was it, the card was done.  Fun, isn't it?

I'm having issues with my photos coming though and will post it as soon as I can get it to come through.

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop in and see today's birthday card,
