Herd You Had A Birthday

Hello Everyone!  Today I have a fun card that I actually made from my FIL!  I had been looking at this super cute set called The Whole Herd for months and months, debating with myself - will I use it, do I *really* need it....and then I remembered what my mother told me......You can NEVER have too many stamps!!  So of course when I saw it in stock at The Scrapbook Store, I had to buy it!  Then I saw they had the fence die......and bought that too!!  LOL!!

So I've used a base of black and layered with Old Olive.  I then took a piece of white card, laid the Cow Print Stencil over the top and airbrushed it with Black Copic.  I then used the curved die from Rolling Hills Die-namics to cut the bottom.  Then I took the same die set to cut a piece of white to make the fence and glued it to the top.  I stamped the sentiment from The Whole Herd in Versafine Black across the bottom.  Then came the fun part - I stamped the cow from The Whole Herd several times and cut them out to make masks and set about creating my 'herd' scene.  I've stamped them in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured them with Copics (C3, C5, C7, R000, R00, R02, E40).  I've matted this with black and popped it up on X-press It Foam Tape.  To finish I've added a little piercing across the bottom.

Stamps - The Whole Herd (MFT)
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, Black, White, Old Olive
Ink - Versafine Black, Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories - Copics, Copic Airbrush System, MFT Rolling Hills Die-namics, MFT Cow Print Stencil, Paper Piercer, X-press It Foam Tape

That's all from me today, thanks for popping by and hope today's card gave you a giggle and inspired you to stamp!  :)

Oh, Kathy!!! I LOVE this card, and your mom was right - we can never have too many stamps (well, as long as we have space and can find them - hehe!!). But I love this adorable set and love the rolling fence. It's amazing and makes probably one of the cutest birthday cards that is really fun for a guy! And I struggle with those. I just may have to weaken myself...hehe! Beautifully done, and I love the stencil! Makes me smile! Hugs, sweet friend!

Ha! This is so cute, and just perfect for a guy card! I love to have fun with those. Most of the guys I know appreciate a humorous card. Love the rolling hillside with the fence. And the herd! Oh, my! I just got done making a cow card, too. Recently purchased two cow stamps, sheesh. Got to love coloring something new.
