TGF Farm Fresh Friday Challenge: A Winter card with Beanie Anya!



Hello and Happy Friday!  Is everyone ready for Christmas next week?  I can't believe it's here already and I still have shopping to do! Yikes! LOL Well today, I'm hosting a new FFF over on The Greeting Farm blog!!! The theme I chose is Winter!  So get out those frosty creations and join us! :)

Here's my card for some inspirataion...


So I FINALLY jumped on the Shaker card Band Wagon!!! :)  Kinda late with that but I thought better late than never, right?!  I've always wanted to try making one so I thought this week was the perfect opportunity.  The only set back was digging around for some plastic to cover the shaker part of my card.  But this was sooooo much fun to create and I can't wait to make another one!  As you can see, I went a little overboard with sequins but then again, you can never have enough sequins, right?!! :)  Oh btw, this cutie is Beanie Anya (Retired) and I colored her up with my copic markers.  I added lots of Wink of Stella as always.  The fun papers are from Doodlebug Designs.  

Hope you like my card and be sure to head over to the TGF blog to check out the amazing projects by the rest of the TGF farmers and to also see the details for this challenge!

Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy your weekend!!!

Hugs,
Marcy

Loves Rubberstamps Holiday Blitz Anything Goes!




Hello Friends!  We have the Holiday Blitz going on at Loves Rubberstamps! We have multiple fantastic sponsors for this and great prizes so I hope you will all join in with us!!!

Here is my card share...


This is part of a set of TGF handmade cards I've been for friends and family.  They're so easy to make now that I have quite a bit! :) I kept my card pretty simple just coloring up cute Anya with my Copic Markers and then adding lots of Wink of Stella glitter to her dress and also some white polka dots to the trim.   I also added some glossy accents to her Christmas Tree ornaments which I thought looks pretty cool!  For the sentiment, I stamped it using some versamark ink and then took some gold embossing powder over that to heat set.  It really looks so pretty against the kraft cardstock.  

Here are the Supplies Used:
Santa Express - Doodlebug Designs
Black Tuxedo - Memento
Versamark Ink - Tsukineko

Have a wonderful day  and thanks for stopping by!

Hugs,
Marcy

Loves Rubberstamps Inspiration Day: Cheers Anya Holiday card!

Happy Saturday Friends!  I wanted to share a fun holiday card I made recently.  I've had a lot of holiday events this week including our holiday luncheon at work.  I wanted to give out some handmade cards and I made a few using this adorable "Cheers Anya" from The Greeting Farm!


Here's a pic of it...


I kept my card pretty simple just coloring up cute Anya with my Copic Markers and then adding lots of Wink of Stella glitter to her dress and also some white polka dots to the trim.  To her wine glasses, I added some glossy accents and  I also scattered some colorful sequins and rhinestones onto the card base.  For the sentiment, I stamped it using some versamark ink and then took some gold embossing powder over that to heat set. It really looks so pretty against the kraft cardstock.  Oh and the fun background paper is from a collection called Santa Express by Doodlebug Designs.  Super adorable holiday papers!

Here are the Supplies Used:
Santa Express - Doodlebug Designs
Black Tuxedo - Memento
Versamark Ink - Tsukineko

Have a wonderful day  and thanks for stopping by!

TGF FFF and Inspiration Day: Happy Holiday Cards!



Hello Friends!  I'm combining my TGF and Inspiration Day posts together as these cards are all part of my last creations!  So how has your week been?  It's been a very busy one for me filled  with holiday events.  I was crafting away all weekend to get some Christmas cards together which I always make for my co-workers and close friends at work.  Every year I have been using a TGF Christmas image which are always the cutest!  They are always enjoyed and so appreciated each year so I don't mind making them at all! :)

So let me tell you about the FFF theme this week which is Non-Traditional Christmas colors!!!  Since some of my cards used different colors other than red and green, I thought they fit in for this challenge.  
Here is one of them...


and here are a few more samples of my TGF Christmas cards this year...

My picks for this year were the adorable Holiday Anya 4 and Cheers Anya!  I'll be sharing my "Cheers Anya" with you tomorrow! :)   Both are perfect for Holiday cards!!!  I even personalize the cards by using favorite colors and coloring hair to match the recipient which is always fun to do!  I hope they will like these cards and I hope you all like them too!  Do you also make personalized holiday cards for co-workers, friends and family during the holidays?  I'd love to see them! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful rest of the week!
Hugs,
Marcy

Loves Rubberstamps Challenge: Happy Holidays!



Hi Friends!  Happy Tuesday to you all!!!  We have a fun Loves Rubberstamps challenge for you this week!  The theme is Winter or Christmas cards! I bet many of you are working on some of those right now so why not play along?!! :)

We have 2 fantastic sponsors this week and they are Meljen's Designs and All Dressed up 
Stamps!!!


   All Dressed Up Stamps 

Here is my card:



So for my holiday card, I couldn't wait to create using one of the new stamp sets I recently picked up from Lawn Fawn called Winter Penguin.  What I love about Lawn Fawn sets are that even though they are pretty simple images, there are so many pieces to the sets that you can make several different cards.  On my card, the snowflakes, the hearts and the sentiment all come with this fun set!  And the perfect paper match is definitely Frosty Friends  by Doodlebug Designs.  This collection is so bright and cheerful and perfect for the holidays!  I finished off my card with some sequins and twine as always!

Here are the additional supplies used on my card:
Black Tuxedo - Memento Ink
Salty Ocean - Tim Holtz Distress Ink
Wink of Stella - Clear Glitter

I hope you will all play along this week to show us your Winter/Christmas cards!  Make sure to check out the Loves Rubberstamps Challenge blog to see what other amazing projects the DT has to share for some inspiration!  Also, if you want to check out all of the adorable Lawn Fawn sets, the Loves Rubberstamps store has brand new releases that just came in!

Have a great week and thanks so much for stopping by!
