Down on the Farm - AR DT Monthly Blog Hop

Welcome to the Creations by AR Design Team Blog Hop! This month the Creations by AR Team is sharing creations made with the new Old McBarn and Old McBarn Card Templates. These template are created for use with cutting machines, there are also PDF files available for those who do not own a cutting machine. Be sure to keep reading to see how you can win one of these new templates!

I cut both templates from My Minds Eye Pattern Paper and Black card stock using the Silhouette Cameo.  Wouldn't these be cute kids Birthday Invites and Favors for a Farm Themed party!

Creations by AR Old McBarn and Old McBarn Card Templates, My Minds Eye Pattern Paper, Artistic Outpost Stamps

Now if I only had a picked up some Screen last week while working the Rubber Stamp Events Show, that would have looked really cool behind the barn doors!  I ran the roof panels through the Big Shot using an Embossing Folder to add texture.  On the Old McBarn Card, I stamped the Pig from the Artistic Outpost Country Life, on Watercolor paper then added color to the image using STAEDTLER Watercolor Markers and Ranger Distress Inks.

Stamps - Artistic Outpost Country Life
Ink - Ranger Black Archival, Ranger Gathered Twigs Distress Ink, STAEDTLER Watercolor Markers
