Farm Friends with Glitter

Hi Crafty Friends,
I am SO EXCITED to be a Guest Designer for Newton's Nook this month! I adore Newton's Nook's stamps, stencils, and dies; so I am soooooo HAPPY to be sharing my favorites with you all month long! For my first post, I created two farm themed cards using the Moo and Cluck Stamp Sets. I decided all farms could use a little glam so I created glitter paste stenciled backgrounds.

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: What is your favorite farm animal?
A: Me? I love horses

Card #1: Birthdays Can Be Fowl

Card #2: Cow Are You?

  1. Such fun cards with these cute critters! I am loving the adorable chickens!
    My favorite farm animal.... chickens! They are so entertaining to watch!

  2. Oh my gosh... love love love these, your stenciled background is outstanding! Love the coloring of every animal! Gorgeous and since your 2nd card reminds me of ice cream I must choose purple cow as my fav! Seriously a back view... EEK.

  3. The rooster is adorable!!!!! But my favorite farm animal might be baby pigs...

  4. Two super cards, loving the Cow's and purples but equally the choocks and warm Autumnal colours, thanks so much for sharing some 'Favourite Stamps' with us at We Love Chocolate Baroque August challenge.

  5. Meghan, congrats on your guest designer spot with Newton's Nook! They're such nice people and have such great products. You're off to a terrific start!

    The background you created is really cool. I love the argyle and I love that they're in the same orientation as the windows in the card. Adorable chicks, too!

    Thank you for Creating Your Own Background Paper for our challenge at Cut it Up!


  6. The cows are darling - especially
    the one inside the card. There are
    usually cats around, and they would
    be my favorite animal. then cows
    and horses. Cute cards.
    thanks for sharing

  7. Two fabulous cards. I love the fun chickens and the awesome purple cow card. Great fun creative cards. I love cows. I live in the country and our neighbors cows get rotated to a field that I can see quite a few times a year.

  8. Two really fun cards with lovely colour combos. Thanks for joining us at We Love Chocolate Baroque challenge.

  9. Beautiful cards and cute images. Especially love the one with cows.
    In real I don't really like farm animals too much. It's too many work with them. But I like rabbits, maybe.

  12. Meghan, I LOVE your purple cows card! So many puns, too! You met all three of our "Things" challenge. Your card is "MOO-velous"!!! Thank you for sharing your creativity with us at Double Trouble for our "Are You Kitten Me" challenge!!! -Donna

  13. Congratulations on your GDT spot. I love this card - so cute, and what a wonderful stenciled background. Thanks for joining our Cut it Up challenge.

  14. Love the combination of the two sentiments on both of your card. One as adorable as the other. Thanks for sharing with us at Double Trouble and 2CCC.

  15. The colors and patterns you used on both of these cards are just perfect! The puns are fabulous as well. What is my favorite animal? It's hard to pick just one, but I think elephants are pretty magnificent! Your pick of horses is a good one. We just got a horse and he's really awesome. Thank you for entering your adorable cards into our challenge at Double trouble! :)

  16. Your cards are both so much fun, Meghan! Great puns, too. I love them both but the purple cow has stolen my heart so for now - that's my favorite farm animal. Thank you for joining us at Double Trouble #90.
