The Greeting Farm: Cheers!

 

Hey, farmers!

I'm here today with my last post for The Greeting Farm. And while I could definitely be sad, I decided to see it positively and cheers to that with today's project!


As always when I'm looking for inspiration, I looked at what was on my craft desk and this time, I found an image I had coloured weeks ago. This image is from the exclusive kit called "Aloha". She practically begged me to be turned into a card! So I diecut a stitched panel with her at the bottom, and added a few circles here and there with my markers, so that we could feel a "bubbly" effect coming out of the project. Hey, I can imagine whatever I want, okay? Hehe!


Last but not least, I took out Holiday Anya 8 and used the sentiment from the set when heat embossing in white over black cardstock. Next, I popped the black strip with foam tape onto my card front and my project was done!





Hope you like it :)

I used the large sentiment from the Unicorn Bday stamp set as my focal point on a very CAS card. I first created a large mask with masking paper and diecut a circle in the center, to create an opening. Next, I applied the new mask directly onto my A2 white cardbase so that I could ink a perfect circle right in the center. After that, I stamped the sentiment in the same space, and then removed the mask. 

Finally, I completed the card with the unicorn colored image that I had left from Day 2 and popped it with foam tape for more dimension.


This is a short hop and definitely worth playing along! If you want to grab your faves now, you can purchase the new stamps HERE. We will have more cards featuring the New Release from our Design Team Leaders starting on the 16th so be sure to stop by The Greeting Farm Blog to see more inspiration.

Happy Hopping!



LDRS Creative: Poinsettia Peace and Love

 

Hello everyone!

 

I'm back with you today for LDRS Creative to share about my latest craft addiction, large backgrounds with watercolor pens! As soon as I saw the large Poinsettia stamp set in the latest release in store, I knew I wanted to create a deeply contrasted background for a Christmas project.

 

 

To create this card, I first stamped the Poinsettia stamp set with Raven hybrid ink  several times onto watercolor paper, to make sure the pattern would be crisp on the slightly bumpy surface. Next, I used my Karin brush markers to colour the whole thing, making sure I would leave some light areas for contrast. I also speckled a few golden drops here and there.

 

 

 

Next, I trimmed my coloured panel to 3 3/4"x5" with a paper trimmer and layered it with some Tiffany Blue cardstock for focal brightness. I layered the whole thing a white A2 cardbase.

 

All that was left to do was to stamp the Christmas Wishes Sentiment Stack 

with Raven hybrid ink onto white cardstock and diecut a whole bunch with the Wave Ribbon Stack coordinating die. I love how you get SO many sentiments with just only one stamp and one cut! I should mention that all the sentiments included in the set mix very well with each other, so I was able to place three of them on my project for a nice finishing touch.

 

 

And that's the end, folks! I hope you like this project and will try it on your own, too!
