Craft Consortium - Farm Meadow - Farm Meadow

Hi everyone 💙 

Here's another little peak at the beautiful new collection from Craft Consortium called 'Farm Meadow', created in partnership with British designer & illustrator Clare Therese Gray. This amazing collection will be launched today (Monday 17th Feb) on Create & Craft TV @ 6pm. The products will thereafter also be available to buy here in the UK on the Craft Consortium website here, and in good craft retailer's websites, and in the USA. Please check out my previous posts for more peeks of the collection.

So today I'm sharing 2 cards I made using the 'Farm Meadow' stamp set and some of the pretty paper from the pad. I used Prismacolor pencils and Copic pens on my cards. I will be back later in the week sharing the last of the stamp sets and my cards. If you have any questions about the collection, just leave me a message and your email address, and I will get back to you. x

For USA visitors - the collection will be distributed by Notions Marketing, you may be able to buy direct from them or you could ask your local craft store to order in direct from Notions Marketing. 


Here's What I Did
I trimmed down a piece of red card and patterned paper from the 'Farm Meadow' pad and attached them both to the front of a 7" x 7" card blank, leaving a slim border around the edge. 

Next I stamped the tractor onto colouring card and coloured it in using pencils, then highlighted some areas with a white pencil. The image was then die cut into a rectangle and mounted onto red card. Funky foam was glued to the back of the topper and then onto the card front.

The wellie stamp was stamped onto kraft card, coloured in with copic pens first then pencils. The image was then fussy cut out and added to the card front, using foam pads and glue.

To complete the card I added 3 banners cut from green, red and kraft card along with a little star.

Here's What I Did
I die cut a rectangle from covered he front of a 6" x 6" card blank with green card and paper from the Farm Meadow pad leaving a slim border around the edge. Using the same green card I trimmed down a strip of and die cut both sides using a 'dash' die, this was then added to the centre of the card.

Next I die cut a scalloped circle from white card and stamped the vegetables crate onto it, then stamped the crate again onto 'Mask It' paper and cut it out. The mask was placed directly over the stamped image on the circle and ink around it with shades of green. When the ink was die I removed the mask and coloured the crate and vegetables with Copic pens. A die cut inverted scalloped
circle cut from green card was glued over the top. 

Funky foam was glued to the back of the scalloped topper and added to the card front. To complete the card sequins were glued around the image and sentiment.

I stamped the watering can onto a piece of white colouring card and then onto masking paper, which I fussy cut out. I covered the watering can with the mask and stamped the wellies. I also stamped the wellies onto masking paper, then fussy out them out and covered the stamped images. Distress ink was apply around the images to give a spotlight. When the ink was dry the masks were removed from the images and die cut it into a rectangle. The images were then coloured using Copic pens.  Dots detail was applied to the boots with a white pen.

A piece of patterned paper from the pad was trimmed down to fit the top portion of the 5" x 7" card blank; the bottom edge of the sheet was die cut to give a scallop edge. The paper was added to the top sectoin of the rectangle. Funky foam was glued to the back of the rectangle and attached to the card front. A sentiment die cut from grey card was attached to the top of the card. 

To finish the card, glossy accents was applied to the watering can to give a shiny effect.
