Happy Hopping!

For my card I used the Mermaid Fun stamp set and created a small slimline card. For the background, I first created the panel by die cutting the 3 different sized stitched circles on thick white cardstock.  I then created the backgrounds behind each circle by blending Distress Oxide inks peacock feathers and cracked pistachio.  Next, I stamped all the images,  colored them with copic markers and fussy cut them. I adhered them with glue or foam tape to give dimension to the card and the whole panel is attached with foam tape. I finished the card with some glossy dots.

The Greeting Farm: April Release Preview Day 2: Mermaid Fun

Hello and  Welcome back for day 2 of The Greeting Farm April release

We have some under the sea cuteness! We are introducing Mermaid Fun! Such a fun set to color.  

For my card I created a sea backgound using Distress Oxide Inks and waves stencils.  I sprayed some water on the background to create some water bubbles.  I used under the sea plants dies and seashells for the bottom of the ocean.   All mermaids and sea creatures were colored with Copic markers, fussy cut and popped with foam adhesive.  All the sentiments were directly stamped on the background.   I love these little mermaids!!

Birthday Cards


Today I'm on The Greeting Farm blog sharing some birthday cards.   March is a very busy month for me, with all the school activities, volleyball tournaments and both my girls birthdays.  I made them both cards featuring some cute TGF stamps.   

For my older daughter's card I used a couple of stamps sets: Miss Anya Fanny Pack and Small Surprises and the sentiment is a TGF Birthday Wishes die.  Both images were colored with Copic Markers and die cut with my Scan & Cut. The background was inblended with Distress Oxide inks and sprayed with water for a bubbly cool effect.  Both images were popped with foam tape, added some enamel dots and  her age die cut.  It turned out pretty cute!

For my younger daughter I used the super cute set that was an exclusive limited edition from the Simon Says Stamps/TGF collaboration called Got Cake?.  I was so excited to be able to get this set.   This card has the same process as the other, just added some patterned paper. 

Thanks for stopping by!
