Charlotte's back!

It's the end of the month, and you know what that means.....previews for the new stamps!  Today is the third and final day of previews and I get to share Charlotte Chic with you today.  I was so excited when I saw her.  Charlotte originally came out about 3 years ago as a digi stamp and now here she is better than ever:  
For my first card I colored Charlotte with copics and added a flower with a brad to her headband.  I used spellbinders dies for the image panel and sentiment and colored the outer edge of the white ones with a copic marker.  The sentiment is from the Sitting Cute set and the papers are from the Citrus Stack by DCWV.  Some Ribbon, a flower and button finish it off.  I love the bright colors on this one!

For my next card I colored Charlotte with copics.  The papers are from the Olivia Collection by Basic Grey.  To keep with the floral theme of the paper I wanted to add a larger flower in the open space so I took 3 different sized flowers, added a jewelry piece and a brad to the center of them and put them on top of a few swirls for leaves.  To finish it off I added some silver self adhesive "pearls" to the image panel and the sentiment (which was from the $1 bin at Michael's).  

Stop on over at The Greeting Farm to see some more gorgeous cards using Charlotte and to find out how you can win this adorable new stamp!  

Thanks for visiting and have a great day!  :)

FFF with TGF

Happy Friday!  It's time for another Farm Fresh Friday over at The Greeting Farm.  Today I got to host this weeks challenge and I chose "Easy as 1,2,3".  Use 1 focal image/sentiment stamp, 2 embellishments and 3 patterned papers.  See, it really is easy!


For my card I used a sentiment from the Anya Strolls set and stamped it on a journaling card that is from the Simple Stories Summer Fresh Collection.  My three different patterned papers are from the same collection.  My two embellishments are pearls (colored to match with a copic) and ribbon.  I also added a border with the Tulip Border Die and a little butterfly to the sentiment.

Now should I admit that my original card for this challenge didn't make it to the picture stage?  Instead of taking a picture of it right away I put it aside figuring I'd do it later.  In the meantime, I decided to clean up my craft room.  Well after doing that, my card, along with my BG00 copic marker, was nowhere to be found.  I have looked for the last two days and still can't find either....thinking they may have fallen into the garbage can by my desk, which of course was emptied on Wednesday :(     
Head on over to the TGF blog to see the rest of the Design Team's fabulous projects and be sure to join us this week ~ I'd love to see what you do with this challenge!

Thanks for stopping and have a wonderful day!

Garden Variety Tuesday with TGF

It's Garden Variety Tuesday over at The Greeting Farm ~ basically it's the same challenge as Double Take Tuesday, it just a new catchy name ;) . This week Thanh challenged us with a sketch and this is what I came up with:  

I used the Limited Edition Queen Bean from last month's release (there are still some of the Limited Edition Beans remaining, so if you still haven't ordered these, go over and grab them before they are gone).  I colored her with copics and cut her out.  I used 4 different patterned papers and added some pearls along with a sentiment from the Delicate Words Die Set.  This was a fun sketch to work with!
Stop by The Greeting Farm blog to check out the rest of the Design Teams amazing projects this week.  While you're there, we'd love to have you join us this week ~ just link up your entry on the blog.

Thanks for stopping and have a wonderful day!
