HOP - Farmhouse Friends

Hello everyone!! Welcome back to our blog, to our Hop. Our Mixed Media Team is using our Brutus Monroe products to make a project using the "Farmhouse Friends" stamp set! If you have not seen them yet, hop over here to see them in our store BrutusMonroe.com.

We hope that you find some inspiration in the projects our team put together.

To start this project hop along,  Jenn created a waterfall card:

Hello everyone! Jenn here today sharing a super fun waterfall card I created using the ohh so adorable Farmhouse Friends Stamp Set

This stamp set comes with both pictures and sentiments that coordinate perfectly! To create this card I used bright summer colors of cardstock and patterned papers.I stamped my pigs and chick using Raven Detail Ink and then water colored them.
After assembling my waterfall pieces I stamped the sentiments in Raven Detail Ink as well.
Want to Create one of these fun interactive waterfall cards? Here is the step by step process:
1. First cut all of the pieces needed. 
Card Base in color of choice 4 1/4" X 5 1/2"
A solid matte is optional but I like this look and chose black. 4 1/8" X 5 3/8"
A bright patterned matte is next at 4" X 5 1/4"
A strip that measures 9" X 2" - Scored at 2" , 2 3/4", 3 1/2", 4 1/4" fold mountain folds on score lines.
A small strip for anchor 3/4" X 4"
4 2" Squares and 4 1 7/8" squares.
2. Add the anchor strip about 3/4" from the bottom and use rivets or score tape or glue on the sides only to attach to the matted piece and adhere this to the card front.
 3. Slide the long end of the scored strip under the anchor and then fold the short end forward and line up with the bottom of the anchor strip. Adhere this to the anchor using glue or score tape being careful not to get the glue anywhere else. 
4. Attach the stamped squares to the 2" matte squares and attach the tops of each one to the three 3/4" spaces. Adhere the final 2" square to be revealed onto the 2" attached to the anchor.
Add any other decor you like and there ya go!
This card can be made in many sizes and there are lots of amazing tutorials on Pinterest!
Have an amazing day!

This next project Nicole used our "Farmhouse Friends" stamp set to create a keyring:

Hi everyone! For this week's project, I chose to do something totally different!  I absolutely LOVE the barn in the Farmhouse Friends stamp set. It's big and perfect for Brutus Monroe shrink film! I stamped the barn and a pig onto the shrink film and let it sit for the ink to dry.  Once the ink dried, I used colored pencils to color all of the images. I then trimmed the shrink film around the image, leaving a small amount of film around the edge for a border.  I used a hole punch and punched a hole in the top of the shilo to add a key ring later on. I used my heat tool and heated both pieces until they shrunk and were perfectly flat. This step only took a minute or two! I then used a glossy accent to cover the entire piece to seal in the color and ink and to give it a glossy look! After it was dry, I added a ring and my key and that was it! Super cute and a great craft for kids to do too!

Enjoy!

Nicole
