The Greeting Farm FFF Challenge: A Sparkly Cheers!



Wow, can't believe the week is already over!  Is it just me or does it seem like the days have been just flying by?!!  Well we're already back to the next Farm Fresh Friday over at The Greeting Farm and this week is a fun "Sparkly" Challenge.  This week's theme is Make it Sparkle!!! Add glitter, bling, rhinestones, sequins...anything to make your project sparkle! :)

   Here is the card I created...


I've had this cute Cheeky Christmas gal for a long time but every year, I can't wait to take her out for a Christmas card!  She is just so adorable and that sentiment is just so perfect for this theme, right?!! :)  I colored up this cute image with my copics and then added lots of Wink of Stella in clear glitter to her santa hat and outfit.  For her white trim, I did use a two-way glue and added some fine white glitter by Recollections.  The picture doesn't show half the sparkle she has up close which is disappointing but she is definitely very sparkly!  I also used some black sparkle embossing powder for the sentiment and of course I had to throw in some sequins on my card! :)

Please check out The Greeting Farm blog to get the details on this challenge and to see the other fabulous Sparkle creations from the DT Girls!  

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful TGIF!

The Greeting Farm FFF: Happy New Year!



Hello Friends!  I am really late in posting this as I have been sick with colds the last few days which has caused my timing to be off big time! So sorry about that but I figured better late then never, right?! :)  Anyways, the FFF challenge this week is actually one I'm hosting on the TGF Blog and this one is perfect timing....Holiday cards!!! So now is the time to get some Holiday cards done and maybe win a prize for entering in the challenge! :)

   Here is the card I created...


So I totally had Christmas in mind for this challenge the whole time but ended up making a Happy New Year card!  But isn't this adorable new Cheers Anya so perfect for that holiday!  She's perfect for so many occasions actually and I had so much fun coloring her up and creating my card.  I thought the black and yellow were elegant colors for this theme and I also added part of a hoarded black doily I had in my stash.  It just had to go! :) I also added a little bit of white dots to her dress using my gel pen and lots of my Wink of Stella in clear glitter for extra sparkle.  I also added some glossy accents to her champagne glasses to emphasize them toasting in the New Year!!! :)

Loves Rubberstamps Tuesday Challenge: Make a Splash with cool colors!


Happy Tuesday Friends and welcome to another Loves Rubberstamps Tuesday Challenge!  Hope you're all having a great week and that some of you are enjoying the Veteran's Day Holiday today!

Before I get to my card, let me introduce this week's challenge Sponsor which is The Paper Shelter!!!


Here is my card:


I had a lot of fun with this week's challenge!  When I think of cool colors, I always think of the ocean or water and of course with mermaids being some of my favorite images to create with, I couldn't resist using this adorable image called Monet the Mermaid by A Random Fan.  I colored her up with my Copic Markers and added lots of my Wink of Stella in Clear Glitter to give her lots of shimmer!  I also added some glossy accents to the cute blue starfish.  For my fun background, I used a new Prima Marketing stencil called "Bubbles" and added some cool colors using several of my Tim Holtz distress inks in the shades of Blue and teal.  I really like the way it came out!  

Here are some other supplies used on my card:


Black Tuxedo - Memento Ink
Peacock Feathers - Tim Holtz Distress Ink
Broken China - Tim Holt Distress Ink
Faded Jeans - Tim Holtz Distress Ink

Please check out the Loves Rubberstamps store to find more adorable A Random Stamp  images.  There are some new ones that just came to the store and they are all so adorable!

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Hugs,

Loves Rubberstamps Inspiration Day: You're an Angel!


Hello Friends and Happy Saturday!!!  I'm here to share some inspiration today from Loves Rubberstamps! With the reopening of the store, there are so many new stamps and crafting items that I can't wait to get my hands on!  I'm looking forward to lots of new creations and of course sharing them all with you! :)

Here is the card I made for today...


So  I had originally thought to make a Christmas card with this adorable Gorjuss Girl image called The Black Star.  However, I ended up deciding to give her wings by using my Wings stamp set by Prima Marketing and voila, she became a cute angel! :)  I had so much fun coloring her up with my copics and couldn't resist adding lots of my Wink of Stella to give her lots of shimmer.  I also added some stickles to her wings for even more added sparkle!   For the soft background,  I did some masking and used some of my Tim Holtz distress inks.  I just love how the inks blend together so perfect every time!

Here are the Supplies Used:
The Black Star - Gorjuss Girls Stamps
Wings - Prima Marketing
Seedless Preserves - Tim Holtz Distress Ink
Faded Jeans -Tim Holtz Distress Ink
Weathered Wood - TIm Holtz Distress Ink
Spun Sugar - Tim Holtz Distress Ink
Black Tuxedo - Memento

Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by!
