Paperie Ink - Fairy Friends

Good morning!  Today I'm sharing a card using a stamp set from the Paperie Ink etsy shop.


This sweet little fairy and the flowers are from the Fairy Friends stamp set.  This set has four adorable fairies and lots of accessory stamps to create lots of different scenes.  I diecut a stitched scallop panel from white cardstock and adhered it to my card base using foam tape for dimension.  I stamped the images on Neenah cardstock, ran them through my ScanNCut, and colored them with copics.  I used a white gel pen to add highlights to the flowers.  I sponged Wilted Violet Distress Oxide Ink onto a diecut circle and spattered it with clean water. I used foam tape to adhere the circle frame over the purple circle, adhered the images, and then adhered the circle to my card.  I stamped one of the sentiments from the stamp set to finish my card.

Copics Used:
Skin - E13, E11, E21, E00, E000, R20
Hair - E44, E33, E31, E30
Dress - BG05, BG01, B000

Reverse Confetti - Heart Pals

Good morning!  Today I'm sharing a card featuring a cute stamp set from Reverse Confetti.


This adorable doggy is from the Heart Pals stamp set.  There are four critter images along with sentiments that are perfect for Valentine cards!  I colored the dog and his sign with copics and used a black glaze pen on his eyes.  I added Nuvo Crystal Glaze to his nose and used a white gel pen to add polka-dots to his shirt.  I diecut a stitched rectangle from white cardstock and added Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Ink with a blending brush.  I adhered the inked panel to my card and then used foam tape to adhere the doggy.  I added a few clear sequins to give my card some sparkle.

The Greeting Farm - January Relese & Blog Hop

 
It’s the 15th, and the JANUARY 2020 RELEASE is now available for purchase in The Greeting Farm Store! The first set, MINKIE #3, showcases our cute Minkie getting ready to go on more adventures. Then we have the LOVE YOU Cutting Die which is perfect to use alone or can be combined with any of our characters. Next up is CHEEKY BABE who is all dolled for an awesome date night. And to round out the release, we brought you 3 big Anyas in the set called MISS ANYA BUCKLES wearing stylish boots with buckles.
 

I used the Love You Cutting Die and a digital Anya that is new to the shop - Be Mine Anya.  I diecut several of the Love You sentiments and glued the layers together to create more dimension.  I printed the digital Be Mine Anya on Neenah cardstock, diecut her with my ScanNCut, and colored her with copics.  I used some Valentine paper from my stash for the base of my card and adhered the sentiment with glue.  I used foam tape to adhere Anya.

Paper Smooches - Anything Cold

Good afternoon!  Today I have a card featuring a chubby snowman from Paper Smooches. 


This adorable snowman is from the Warm Hearts stamp set.  I've had this stamp set forever and I still love created clean and simple cards with it!  I sponged distress oxide inks on Bristol card and then diecut it using a stitched rectangle die.  I also stamped the snowflakes using the distress oxide ink.  I diecut a snow slope and sponged distress ink along the top.  I stamped the sentiment on the snow slope and added some Glamour Dust to the edge to make it look frosty.  I colored the snowman and bird with copics and diecut them using the coordinating dies.  I added some Glamour Dust to the snowman and applied Nuvo Crystal Glaze to the heart. I used a black glaze pen on the snowman's eyes and mouth and then adhered him and the bird with foam tape.

I'm entering my card in the Paper Smooches Challenge where the theme is Anything Cold.

Paperie Ink - Mermaid Kisses

Good morning!  Today I'm sharing a card using a stamp set from the Paperie Ink etsy shop.


All of these adorable images are from the Mermaid Kisses stamp set.  There are five sweet little mermaids, two sentiments, and lots of fun accessory stamps.  Be sure to stop by her shop and check it out!  I stamped all the images on Neenah cardstock, ran them through my ScanNCut, and colored them with copics.  I used a black glaze pen on the sea creatures' eyes and I used a white gel pen to add some highlights. I sponged distress oxide inks on Bristol card to create the water scene.  I spattered water droplets and once dry I stamped the sentiment.  I adhered the images with foam tape and added a few clear bubble embellishments.

The Greeting Farm - January Previews Day 2

Hello and welcome to Day 2 of The Greeting Farm previews of the January release!  Today I'm sharing a card that features the new Love You Cutting Die.



The font on this die is beautiful and is large enough to be the focal point of your card, or you can pair it with an image like I did on my card.  This sweet kitty is from the Cute Kitties stamp set and I thought it would go perfectly with the new die to create a Valentine card!  I sponged Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Ink on Bristol card and then spattered water which I dried with a paper towel.  I diecut the sentiment two times and glued them together to create a thicker diecut and then I adhered it to my card.  I colored the kitty with copics and used a Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen over the pink heart.  I used foam tape to adhere the kitty and then I added a few clear sequins for some sparkle.

Thanks for stopping by.  Be sure to stop by Monday for our third day of previews.  In the meantime, stop by The Greeting Farm Blog to see what the rest of the team created! 

Hugs, Anita
