The Greeting FArm: Pool PArty

 Hello TGF friends

 I hope you are all enjoying your summer! It’s been a hot one here in Cincinnati but I don’t mind it at all.  To celebrate summer I created a card with the adorable Pool Party set from The Greeting Farm.    They look they are having so much fun floating away!! 

All images were colored with Copic markers and diecut.  The water was done by ink blending a couple of Distress Oxide colors using a water stencil.   The sentiment was stamped on that panel.  I used a couple of different patterned paper from Echo Park Summer Party 6x6 pad,  to complete the card.  


Copics Used:
Girl 1: Hair YR31, YR30, E40;  Skin: E04, E11, E00  Swimsuit: B02, B05  Tube: RV06, RV04, RV 02, R21
Girl 2:  Hair: BV29, BV25, BV23  Skim: E04, E11, E00  Swimsuit: YG13, YG17 Sunglasses: W5, W3, Y18  Tube: Y15. Y18. YG17
Boy: Hair: E47, E44, E42  Skin: E04, E11, E00   Shorts: BG13   mTube: B26, B05, B04

Mama Elephant: Love Ya

 Hello crafters

Today I’m sharing another Mama Elephant card that I will be entering for the Guest Designer call.  I’m in love with the Little agenda sets! They are so tiny, cute and easy to color. 

For my card I used the little Monkey Agenda and used the images I thought would work better for a love you card.  I stamped the images on the background that was die cut from Mama Elephant Love Ya Die. 

The images were colored with Copic markers.  For the loveya sentiment I started by blending some distress ink oxides (Kirsch Flamingo, Picked Raspberry and Abandoned Coral)  on a piece of white cardstock and created a hombre look and cut out the words.  I popped all the layers with foam adhesive and added some dot enamels in the corners.

I really like how it turned out.

Mama Elephant: One design Two cards


Today I am sharing two cards I made using Mama Elephant stamps and dies.  I have one design and two different cards.  

For my 1st card I use the so cute Little Mermaiden Agenda set and the whales are from Whale Wishes set.  (No links yet to the store as they are moving).   I also used the Slim Card die basic to design the card and cut the 3 windows. 

The sea background was ink blended with TH Distress Oxides Savage Patina, Peacock Feathers and a little of the Kirsch Flamingo.  I sprayed a little water and blotted excess, as well as drops of liquid shimmer to get a sparkly ocean water.  

The sentiments were stamped on the front panel, and it was popped with 3M adhesive foam.  All images were colored with Copic markers, fussy cut and popped with foam adhesive.  I finished the card with dot enamels. I added Prisma glitter on the mermaids. 

I took the same design and created a Halloween card using the adorable Little Witch Agenda set and the Little Boo Agenda set.    

For the night sky on the 1st panel, I first applied tumbled glass oxide ink along the tiny circle mask to create a halo. Next I applied chipped sapphire oxide ink on the rest of t panel. I also added black soot oxide ink to darken the edges, and splattered water, as well as drops of shimmer liquid to get a nice sparkly spooky night sky. I took the mask off and slightly colored the moon with Copic YG00.   All other panels were done using the same ink blends.  With the black Copic marker I free handed the bats and trees.   

All images were colored with Copic markers, fussy/die cut and popped with foam adhesive.    The sentiments were white heat embossed and finally finished the card with dot enamels.  

I love how they both turned out!!   I’m entering both cards for the Guest Designer call 😊 

Thanks for stopping by!
