A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words.....TGF Release

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,  Today I am showcasing the "polaroid" die from the new Film Die Set.

For my first card I decided to go with an Instagram theme and made an Instagram camera:

The top part was sponged and I added some ribbon for the stripes.  The lens and the view finder have a piece of transparency underneath to make it look more realistic.  In addition to the polaroid die I used Delicate Words Die set and the Anya Styles set.

For my second card I went with a black and white picture color theme:

I used the polaroid die and the film strip die from the Film Die Set along with the new Creeper Crew stamp, Tuesday Premiere....LOVE her!   To get the STAR sentiment to fit in the film strip die, I cut out the two strips that divided the film panels.  I added silver glitter, used a silver paint pen to add dots on the card, and a ribbon with a bunch of silver "pearls".

Stop on over at The Greeting Farm to see some more gorgeous cards using the polaroid die and to find out how you can win the new Film Die Set!  

Thanks for visiting and have a great day!  :)

Retro Fresh Wednesday with TGF

Today it's time for Retro Fresh Wednesday, a month long challenge, over at The Greeting Farm.  

The theme for this month is
Over the Top - Lots of Layers
(and use a TGF stamp that is older than 6 months)

For my card I used Lolli Anya (who is now retired).  I colored her with copics and added some stickles and rhinestones to the image.  For my embellishments I used some taffeta ribbon, a lot of pearls, bakers twine for the lollipop, a doily and a heart button.  The sentiment is from the Mini Cupcakes set.  Three of the papers are from Lily Bee Design and  the other is unknown.    

We'd love to have you join in the Retro Fresh Challenge....remember, you have an entire month to enter and the winner gets a 4x6 stamp set of their choice as well as a single stamp.  

Thanks for visiting and have a great day :)

Dream - Canvas

Happy Thursday everyone!  Today was my day to post on The Greeting Farm blog and I decided to share fun little project I did.  

When the mixed media craze started I went out and bought a bunch of canvas panels.....unfortunately the only thing I have used any of them for was......taking pictures of my cards.  So, I decided to pull one out and try to make something for my craft room.  I started by painting the canvas with green and blue acrylic paints.  I stamped a tree and painted over the branches with brown acrylic paint and then added buttons with embroidery floss tied on them.  For the cloud I cut some white fur fabric (see I knew those scraps I saved from when my DI team was making costumes would come in handy!) with the cloud die from the Mini Clouds with Die stamp set.  I wanted to try to stamp Garden Anya directly on the canvas and then paint her but chickened out so I colored her with copics, added some stickles to the ribbon on her hat, fussy cut her out and then added her to the canvas.  To finish it off I added some washi tape to the bottom left corner, stamped the word dream and added two rihinestones.  All in all I am happy with how this turned out and can't wait to add it to my craft room wall.

Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful day! :)

Garden Variety Tuesday on The Farm

It's Tuesday so that means time for another Garden Variety Tuesday over at The Greeting Farm. This week, since today is the 155th day of the year, Peggy challenged us to create a card using a 1-5-5 recipe and here is what I came up with:  

I used the new Baby Anya and Ian stamp set.  Ian is colored with copics and cut out.  I used pretty many layers on this one.  After I put the ribbon on and added my layers I realized you really couldn't notice it so I added a bit more as a "tab". The embellishment on the bottom left is a button with twine and a baseball hat charm hung from it.  I added three brads to the bottom right corner and one on in the center of the gear.  The image panel is raised on dimensionals.

So, have you figured out my 1-5-5?  It is 1 image, 5 different patterned papers, 5 different embellishments (brads, button, charm, ribbon and twine).
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!

Oh, BABY! It's time for the TGF June Release!

Hi, everyone!

Thanks so much for joining me today in the JUNE release at The Greeting Farm!

As you've seen over the past few days, we are going "ga-ga" over this new installment of cuteness available NOW in the TGF Store!   We're welcoming the new onesie die, the revamped Anya and Ian stamp set, the new Winky Bean, and a new WS Charlotte "Chic"!  We're keeping it sweet and sassy this month and can't WAIT to see what you do with these new items!

For my first card I used the new Winky Bean:
I love the playfulness of the Beans so I just had to use some fun cheerful papers.  She was colored with copics and I added a few pearls and a satin ribbon and bow to finish it off.

For my second card I used the Onesie Die and a sentiment from the Baby Anya and Ian set.
Instead of using it as a onesie, I decided to try something different.  I cut off the bottom part of the onesie, added some lace and a little button and's a dress.  I came across the baby girl ribbon and had to use it with this.
