Feeding the ducks

Hello crafty friends!

Happy first day of Fall!! I can’t believe that summer is officially over and fall is knocking on our door. I LOVE the colors of fall, but don’t like that it means that all the fluffy white stuff is literally right around the corner…ughhhh!

My design team project for All Dressed Up Stamps today features this little sweetheart called ‘Feeding the Ducks‘. Such cuteness!

I printed this little sweetheart on X-Press It Blending Card and colored her with the following markers.

Hello Beautiful

Hello crafty peeps!

We all need a card just to simply let someone know they are beautiful just the way they are!

I am back today to share a slimline card I created for my second project as guest designer for The Greeting Farm. This gorgeous image is called ‘Dressy Ebony‘. She worked out perfectly on a slimline card by adding a sentiment to the bottom of the card.

I printed this little sweetheart on X-Press It Blending Card and colored her with the following markers.

~Copics~
Skin: E13, E11, E21, E00, E000, E0000, R20, R30, R00
Hair: E55, E53, E51
Dress, Shoes, Headband: RV99, RV95, RV93, RV91, RV000
Flower: RV95, RV93, RV91, RV000, YR24, Y15, Y11
Jacket: YG97, YG95, YG93, YG91, W0

The beautiful flowers I used on my card are from I Am Roses.
R2-839 – Mini Mixed All Green and WHITE Paper Flowers
LY3-188 – Pale Lilac Mini Lily Crafts Paper Flowers
S10-15 – White Small Craft Paper Flowers
T1-15 – White Mini Artificial Paper Crafts Rosebuds
R2-15 – Mini White Paper Flowers
R4-15 – White Artificial Small Arabian Jasmine Craft Flowers  
S10-921 – White with Soft Pink Center 2 Tone Small Flowers

I planned the card layout before I started coloring to be sure I was printing the image at the correct size.  I wanted to be sure Ebony fit inside the scalloped oval die cut, and that there would be room for the flowers.  Once all my coloring was complete, I fussy cut her out and glued her directly to the oval.  The flowers were added last.

There is so much cuteness to be found at The Greeting Farm…how does one choose…lol!

Until next time…crafty hugs!!
Pam

i’m here for you

Happy Friday!

I am back today with another little cutie from Rachelle Anne Miller Creative Studios. This incredibly sweet image is called ‘Flower River‘. Such a clever place to sit and take a rest!

I printed this sweet image on X-Press It Blending Card and colored her with the following markers.

Bonjour

Hello and welcome!

Squeeeee…I am so excited to be guest designing for The Greeting Farm this month!!

Can you believe cutie patootie ‘Bonjour Anya‘ is on her way to Paris and left me behind?? I am hoping that someday I will get to see all the wonders of Paris!

This little sweetheart was printed on X-Press It Blending Card and was colored with the following Copic Markers.

Once I had Anya colored, I fussy cut her out and set her aside to start on my card design. I started with a card base that is 5×5, and created a design with lots of layers. The center portion is popped up with double sided foam tape. When the card design was finished I attached Bonjour Anya with double sided foam tape as well. The main paper inspiration is from Doodlebug Design – French Kiss Collection.

There is so much cuteness to be found at The Greeting Farm…how does one choose…lol!

Until next time…crafty hugs!!
