Boba Tea Time


Today I'm at The Greeting Farm blog sharing a card I made using the super popular Boba Anya (I just realized she is now out of stock) and I also used one of the little images from Small Surprises.  Who doesn't like a good Boba tea drink! I love the ones with the busrting bubbles full of yummy flavors. They are becoming more and more popular these days.  

For my card I colored both images with Copic Markers and die cut them with my Brother Scan & Cut.  The background was made using the Taylored Expressions stencil Bubbly and ink blending several Distress Oxide inks ( Dusty Concord, Wilted Violet, Chipped Sapphire and Stormy Sky).  I aslo die cut the little drink cup from Mama Elephant Boba Shaker  and made a shaker element using some foam adhesive.   I love how it turned out.  

Thanks for stopping by!

Anya:  Skin E04, E11, E00 R20   Hair: V09, V06, V04, V01 Outfit: B97, B95, B93 Y15, Y17

 Welcome back to The Greeting Farm August Previews Day 2!  Today we have such a delicious treat for you!! Introducing Donut Worry Anya!! Isn't she adorable?? and her little cat?? Love the donut theme!!! 

I had the perfect paper to inspire me.   Both images colored with Copic markers and die cut with my Brother Scan & Cut.  They are popped with foam adhesive.  I added glossy accents on the donut glaze to make them shiny.  I loved using some of my patterned paper.  I feel I don't use them as much and I forget how much they help me with a color scheme.

Lawn Fawn Challenge #106: Sketch Challenge


I was inspired by the new LAwn FAwn sketch challenge to create a card.  

I used the cute set Den Sweet Den and the Stitched Den dies to create this cute card.  All images were colored with Copic markers.  For the background I played with Distress Ink Oxides ( Prize Ribbon and Wilted Violet) by Ink Smearing both colors into the Ranger's Distress White Heavycardstock. I learned this new technique from Jenn Shurkus Creative Chick Distress Class.  

Thanks for stopping by.

Flutterby Anya


I'm on The Greeting FArm blog today! I can't believe that my girls are going back to school in less than 2 weeks! I'm not ready for Summer to end.  It's my favorite season! So today I'm here sharing a bright summery card using the super cute Flutterby Anya with all her butterflies!  I used a patterned paper as my color inspiration, bright yellows and teals.  Love this color combo.


I colored Anya with Copic markers.All the butterflies were glittered with Prisma glitter.  I created several layers with different die cut panels and popped the top layers with foam adhesive.  The sentiment is from The Greeting Farm Say BDay stamp set (not in the shop but you can request it in the Farmer Market). 

   I finished the card with a couple of die cut butterflies from Sheryl Lynn.  

I love the brightness of this card.  I just hope Summer will stay a little longer.  See you next time! 


Copics Used:
Skin: E04, E11, E00, RV11
Hair: BV29, BV25, BV23
Hat: Y21, Y23, YR24 BG11, BG13, BG49
Outfit: BG11, BG13, BG49, Y23
