April Release Blog Hop!

Today is RELEASE DAY for the new APRIL Stamps at C.C. Designs.
As you have seen from our Preview Days,
these new stamps revolve around birthday parties and celebrations!
I used the adorable Balloon Lucy and some fun dies for today's hop:

I have missed coloring on kraft! It's such a fun technique,
and always gives the image such an easy tan complexion. 
I paired Balloon Lucy with two dies from the Make A Card Summer #16 Metal Die.
The glasses are a perfect fit for Lucy and gives her such a studious look.
I also used an old C.C. Designs sentiment on the tag die from this same set. 
I colored Balloon Lucy with Copics, 
then I  added a little faint detail behind the balloon for transparency.


Every release we will have a New Release Blog Hop to showcase our awesome Design Team.

Hope as an anchor for the soul

Happy Wednesday, friends!
The Greeting Farm now has a line of Faith based stamps,
and they are simply beautiful.
The newest release is a wonderful array called Blessed Words:
Here is my card using HOPE:



We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. Hebrews 6:19
 
As I was putting together my list of supplies,
I realized that the anchor paper, anchor chipboard, and swirly white papers
are all courtesy of Michaels ($1 or less!). 😊

The Faith based stamps are geared towards bible journaling,
but they make amazing cards as well!
You can see all of the beautiful samples by the Faith Design Team here on the blog.
Simply beautiful. 💓

Have a wonderful middle of the week day!
Thank you so much for coming by.

A card for Lou

Happy Tuesday everyone!
If anyone is familiar with Lou Daubney,
then you know what a true optimistic sweetheart she is.
Lou is a big name in the crafting world,
affiliated with the likes of Saturated Canary, Mo Manning, and Tiddly Inks
(to name just a few!).
She is also a fighter, as she is going through a medical challenge
that I know she will overcome.
I made this card for Lou to put in her little care package from me:


C.C. Designs released this sweet stamp called Rustic Sugar Cinnamon with Bunnies,
and oh what a perfect image!
Lou is also a proud mum of two sweet hippity hops.💓
 I used the sentiment and the carrot from the Meoples Hops Clear Stamp to finish up the card.

I encourage you to follow Lou's journey here on her blog,
her talent and positivity will truly make you smile. 😊

Have a beautiful day everyone,
thank you for coming by!

Little Heroes

Happy Super Hero Monday everyone!
I am so excited to start off the week with the newest cuties from TGF.
Little Heroes is an all clear set that also has coordinating dies (sold separately):


Eeeek! Isn't this just a SUPER set?
The masks, helmets, add ons, are just SO CUTE!
Here are a couple of cards that I created with this set:



I pulled out some Cuttlebug Folders for the backgrounds,
keeping it simple so I could showcase the characters more.

You can see more samples by the Farmers here on the blog,
and by Rosie and Claudette here on this Stamp Feature.

Have a SUPERHERO kind of Monday, everyone!
Thank you so much for coming by today, I barely made it out of bed. 😏

Blog Hop Hop Hop Hop!


Hi friends!!! 💚
Today is RELEASE DAY for the new MARCH Stamps at C.C. Designs
As you have seen from our Preview Days, these new stamps revolve around Spring and Easter 
with some of the cutest chickies, bunnies, and kitty around!


For today's hop I just had to use Hop. 😉

I thought I'd go with a neutral card so I could finally use that three year old ribbon. 😏
I stamped the bunny with Versamark, then embossed him in seafoam white.
I used Shapers #2 Die for the patterned panel, and Dotted Rectangles Die for the back panel.

Every release we will have a New Release Blog Hop to showcase our awesome Design Team.
Check out their amazing creations!

C.C. Designs Release Day #3



Happy hippity hop Release Day to you all!
C.C. Designs is wrapping up its day 3 of the March Release,
and eeeek we have more Roberto's Rascals coming your way!

My first card features Bunny Boy, and boy is he sweeeeet...

I had so much fun with C.C. Designs Dies (Make A Card Summer #16),
then I added a sentiment from the Hop Clear Set that debuted a couple of days ago.
To finish it off, I used C.C. Designs Enamel Dot (Halloween Boo).
He was colored up in Copics, as was his little buddy peeking out from his ear. 

For my next card, I inked up the adorable Chicky Girl:


I decided to do a softer palette with this cutie, just so I could match the paper.
I colored her up in Copics as well, then added a rub-on sentiment, 
and of course topped it off with those adorable C.C. Designs Enamel Dots in Autumn.

I just adore this Month's new releases and I hope you do too!
Be sure to join us with our Blog Hop tomorrow for your chance to WIN!
Thank you so much for coming by, have a wonderful Wednesday everyone!

Blessed Words



Hello everyone! The Greeting Farm is continuing its line of Faith based stamps,
and this month we are debuting one called Blessed Words:


These stamps are so wonderful to use for all of your projects,
and Bible Journaling is such a beautiful art that I am determined to try soon!
To show the versatility of this set, I created a card focusing around one of the words:


This card was so much fun to make, I think I'll do a handful for Easter. 💗
I combined REJOICE with a Spellbinders cross, D'arcy cloud embossing folder,
leaf ribbon, and mini roses from Michaels.
Pop by the blog post here to see what the Faith DT has created with this sweet set,
there are some amazing samples on today's blog post for you all to swoon over!

A 'Tail' to share with you


Happy Tuesday everyone!
I am on The Greeting Farm's blog today for Tip Me Tuesday.
If you are new to the Farm, TMT is an every-other-monthly feature of color combos,
paired with our favorite images from TGF.
Today's card uses the adorable SSSC No. 34 named Waverly.
{She is not available in the store just yet, but keep peeking in!} 💖


For the no line technique, I inked Waverly up with Memento Ink {Angel Pink}.
I colored her in using Copics, and added little white dots with an Inkessentials Pen.
The sentiment is a rub on, which is my go-to when I fear I'll mess up. teehee! 😏
I also used the adorable bunting stamp from the Little Party set for the banner AND the sun.
Don't you just love multi purpose images?

You can find all of TGF's past SSSC releases here,
and be sure to browse all of the newest cuties right here at Marie's store.
Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone, thank you for coming by to say hello!
