We’re On the Farm for {Cupcake Inspirations}!🐄

Hello friends!  Hope that you’ve had a wonderful weekend!  I sure enjoyed my time with hubby relaxing and enjoying the cooler temps for sure!  After all the “partying”, are you ready for a new challenge?


Today we’re starting with a brand new challenge over at {Cupcake Inspirations} with the theme “On the Farm“!  So whatever farm related project you’re working on, please be sure to link it up in our challenge!  We look forward to seeing what you all come up with!

Here’s what I’ve made for the challenge:


I’ve been wanting to use this fun barn die from My Favorite Things for a while and this was super fun to create a farm scene with!  It even has the little embossed markings on the barn along with a bail of hay!🐓

I started out using the MFT cloud stencil and Tumbled Glass Distress Ink for the background panel, then layered over a grass border at the bottom and then cut this panel out with the stitched rectangle die.  I also stamped the sentiment as well as a few animals from the MFT The Whole Herd stamp set, colored and cut them out with the coordinating dies. (can’t find in the store!)  I then placed my fence border over top of the grass border, popped up the barn with foam tape where I wanted it and then placed all of the other images arranging them over the scene.  This front panel was attached to a top folding A2 red card base.


So I love how the door on the barn can open up with that die cut!  Of course I had to add something inside the barn and with the nest of eggs sitting on top, it only felt right to place the chicken in there!  For the backing of the barn, I’ve taken a piece of paper from the MFT Woodgrain Whimsy Paper Pad and attched it from behind before popping it up with some foam tape.  I’ve also taken a pen and wrote the “milk” word over top of the colored can next to the cow.


Hope you’ve enjoyed my creation today and that you’ll stop in and check out all of the other “Farm Fresh” creations over on the {Cupcake Inspirations} blog and join in the fun with us!

Thanks so much for stopping by and I’ll be seeing you again soon!
