Graduation Time

 Hi TGF friends 

It's the end of the school year and graduation month for many. Everywhere I drive I see all the graduation signs in people's yards.  My daughter is graduating 8th grade and moving to high school to a brand new school.  I'm excited and nervous for her.  I decided to make her a little graduation card to congratulate her on her hard work.  The Greeting Farm has the cutest Graduation stamp set!! I love it.  It's just perfect!  

I cut the back blue panel from patterned paper. I die cut a smaller one out of white cardstock.  I stenciled the background with Distress Oxide Inks.  I white heat imbossed the sentiment Well Done into black cardstock.  Both characters were colored with Copic markers and die cut.

They are both popped with foam adhesive.  The Whoo Hoo! sentiment was stamped in black onto the background. I finished the card with some dot enamels.  

Thanks for stopping by!!

For my card I started by stamping both characters on Copic Xpress It and masked both.  I ink blended the background with Distress Oxide Inks.  At the end I splattered some of the darker ink into the whole scene.  I lifted th emasks and colored both images with Copic markers.  The big sentiment was stamped in black and the fur-real sentiment was heat embossed.  I added the little cat ears to Anya and the little cat wand to Ian.  I really love how it turned out.

Fairy Love


Today I'm on The Greeting Farm blog sharing a slimline card I made using the super cute Little Fairies stamp set.   It was my 1st time using this stamp set and I'm in love!! They are so much fun to color and quick to color too! 

I used a backgound die from Hello Bluebird to set the scene for these little cuties.  All the background is colored with Distress Oxides and Copic markers.   All the Fairies, little mushrooms and ladybugs are all colored with Copics and die cut with my Brother Scan & Cut.   

Each little fairy was popped with foam adhesive.  I glittered their wings with Prisma glitter.  Sentiment was stamped directly on the background.  I also stamped the little stars from the set into the background  and glittered them too.
