Q's Creative Kits: FARMHOUSE Cards

Farmhouse Card kit is my ode to that sweet, simple country Farmhouse style that so many are enjoying in their homes these days.  We may miss the Gaines 'Fixer Upper' home renovations, but who needs a home, when you have a card!  Much faster and less $! :)

Designed around white (quintessentially Farmhouse) shiplap paper, I added more natural pattern papers; wood-grain & honeycomb, chicken wire with a touch of blue gingham to brighten things up.

Honey bees, Sunflowers, twigs, eucalyptus leaves, corkscrew willow branches and OH MY, I'm SO excited to share with you my very own COTTON BUD tutorial!  I really wanted to make these from cotton (NOT paper).  After much trial and error I came up with a simple way to create some pretty realistic looking cotton buds.

Lastly, no Farmhouse card kit would be complete without a sliding farm door card!  You'll definitely need 1/8" foam strips for that card.  If you don't want to buy some, let me know and I'll be sure to put 2 strips in for that card.

All Q's Creative Kits come with a step-by-step slideshow which I will email to you, as well as the bonus printable and cut files.

FREE Father's Day PRINTABLE cards!

I've enjoyed sharing FREE printable downloads so much over the past few months, I'm going to keep doing it!

Here are a few more from my Junk Drawer Studio 5 segment I did back in 2015.  (Yes, when I run out of re-runs, I'll design new ones!).

This just makes me laugh and laugh, brings back TOO many memories.  Dad; slayer of spiders.  I tried so hard to teach my girls to NOT be afraid of them, that they are our friends and we should capture them and release them outside...HAH!  

These cards are perfect for kids.  Super easy!  You can download the printables HERE.


Don't throw away that partial deck of cards (of course not...they're in your junk drawer!).

I've used this one for Father's day, but brainstorm and you'll find sentiments to go with all of them!

I scuffed up the front of the card with fine sandpaper, mounted it and foams squared everything on.











Let's talk paper clips...  who knew?  A whole world of DIY paper clip transformations!  

How cute is this hanger!  Perfect for this Father's day card, but so many other applications.  

Great use for your little bits of paper you've been holding on to!

Have fun creating this easy cards.  If you have any questions, please email me.
