Anya & Ian - The Greeting Farm

 Hello Crafty Friends! 

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!  IT is now a mad dash for the busy Christmas season!  

This past week I received the new Anya & Ian big set and couldn't wait to color these cuties!! The set is amazing! All the images are so adorable!  I hope you were able to pre-order this kit!  If any left from the presale it will be added to the shop.  Keep an eye out for it at TGF store.  

I created two cards with the same design, one with Anya and the other with Ian. Just changed the colors and sentiments.  

I stamped the images into Copic XpressIt cardstock and masked them. I stenciled the background with a circle stencil using different colors of Distress Oxide Inks.  The images were colored with Copic markers and the sentiments we stamped with coordinating colors.   I kept it simple and love how they turned out!! 

I can't believe this is my last post of the year!!  I wish you all a wonderful Holiday Season and hope to be back next year with lots of inspiration!

From All of Us - Minkie Christmas

 Hello crafty friends!

Today I'm on The Greeting Farm blog sharing a new Christmas card using the adorable Minkie Christmas set.  These little guys are just so full of Christmas Cheer!! They were the perfect size to fit into this postage collage die that I recently got.  

I created this postage collage with this postage die (links below).  I used the coordinatating stencil to color each of the little postage squares with Distress Ink Oxides and Mica Distress Ink spray.   I stamped the sentiments in black, little hearts in red and I heat embossed in white the snowflakes.  All these are from the Minkie Christmas set.   All the MInkies were colored with Copic markers and die cut with my Scan & Cut.  They were all attached to background with foam adhesive.  

To finish the card I added glitter on all the images and glossy accent on the deer hat nose.  The finished card was matted with black cardstock.  

This card is ready to be send for some holiday cheer!! 

Thanks for stopping by!! Hugs

Happy Winter - New Digital set


The Greeting Farm is releasing a new digital set perfect for the holidays and for those fun winter days.  Introducing Happy Winter.  

This set has several fun images , Ian and Anya playing with the snow,  a beatiful house, car full of snow, pine trees, deer and a cute snowman.  It is so much fun to create a super cute winter scene.  

I created this scene on a word document and played with the sizing and position of the images until it was how I wanted.   All was colored with Copic markers and I matted the card with black cardstock.  I added some glitter stickles on the snow in the trees, on the roof and around the kids.  

So much fun!  I don't know about you but I'm not ready for winter! :)
