Stamptember with The Greeting Farm

Hello everyone!  Today I'm sharing a stamp set that was created exclusively for the Stamptember collaboration with Simon Says Stamp


These sweet images are from the Winter Is Here stamp set.  I colored everything with copics and then cut them out.  I added some Nuvo Crystal Glaze to the star and lights on the Christmas tree and I used a black glaze pen on the little boy's jacket.  I diecut the snowbank and then used a stencil to add some layers of snow with distress inks.  I also used distress inks to create the night sky, and then added flicks of white paint to create a light snowfall. 

These stamps and dies will only be available while supplies last.  Once they're gone they won't be restocked so hurry over to Simon Says Stamp to order yours now.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hugs, Anita

Sunny Studio Stamps - Fall Kiddos

Hello everyone!  I did some guest designing for Sunny Studio Stamps last month, using the adorable Fall Kiddos Stamps and dies.  I had my post written and thought it was scheduled to post while I was away on vacation.  I'm not sure what I did wrong but it never posted and I just realized I had never shared my cards on here.  So, better late than never lol!  


I colored all the images with copics and then diecut them using the coordinating Fall Kiddos Dies.  The diagonal-striped paper is from the Dots & Stripes Jewel Tones 6x6 paper pad - I love the colors and patterns in this collection!  I diecut a piece of Bristol card and applied distress oxide inks in Spiced Marmalade and Fossilized Amber.  I adhered the images and the sentiment tag with foam tape.    

 


I used a piece of diagonal-striped paper from the Dots & Stripes Jewel Tones 6x6 paper pad on this card also.  I diecut a rectangle of Bristol and sponged various distress inks to create a background of fall colors.  I colored all the images with copics and then diecut them using the coordinating dies.  I added white polka-dots to the girl's dress with a white gel pen.  I adhered the images with foam tape and added a few enamel dots to finish my card.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you have an amazing week!

Hugs, Anita

The Greeting Farm - September Release & Blog Hop



It’s the 15th, and that means the 4 new SEPTEMBER Stamps are NOW available for purchase in The Greeting Farm Store! Our first set, COZY FOR YOU will give you warm, fuzzy feelings, and remind you of things that make the holidays special. Our second set called BREW IT ANYA features a big Anya holding some coffee, and it looks like you all love her a latte. The next set, TRICK OR TREAT 2, is perfect for Halloween and would make awesome birthday cards! And, the last big Anya set called SMILE ANYA just oozes happiness.
 

I used the Cozy With You stamp set and coordinating dies for today's card.  I colored the images with copics and then used the coordinating dies to diecut the images.  I sponged Cracked Pistachio distress ink on Bristol card, splattered it with water droplets, and then dried them with a paper towel.  I adhered the adorable Christmas images with foam tape.

Happy Haunting

Hello everyone!  Today I'm sharing a card that I posted over on The Greeting Farm Blog.


I love making Halloween cards!  They're one of my favorite kinds of cards to make.  My daughter's birthday falls on Halloween so it's one of my favorite holidays to celebrate!  This sweet witch and mummy are from the Trick or Treat stamp set.  I colored the images with copics and then cut them out.  I used some fun Doodlebug Design paper and stenciled some clouds onto cardstock to create the background.  I adhered the witch and mummy with foam tape, and heat-embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder.

Copics Used:
Skin - E13, E11, E21, E00, E000, R20
Hair - E15, YR23, Y23
Hat - C7, C5, C3
Hatband & Bow - YG17, YG03, YG01
Dress - V17, V15, V12
Broom - YR23, YR19
Mummy - C3, C1
