Happy Bird-Day

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


These cute images are from the new stamp set called Happy Bird Day.  I sponged distress oxide ink on a stitched rectangle to create the base of my card and then I spattered clean water.  I stamped the sentiment from the new stamp set and then adhered a diecut frame that I cut from white cardstock.  I stamped all the images on Neenah cardstock, ran them through my ScanNCut, and colored them with copics.  I used a white gel pen to add some polka-dots to the party hat and I used a black glaze pen on the bird's eyes.  I used my Wink Of Stella Clear Glitter Pen on the banner and balloon to give them some sparkle.  I adhered all of the images with foam tape.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you have a fabulous day!

Hugs, Anita

Raccoon Love Letter

Happy Valentine's Day!  Today I'm sharing a card using a cute digi from Paper Nest Dolls.


This cute digital image is Raccoon Love Letter.  Paper Nest Dolls has several Valentine raccoon digis so be sure to stop by their shop and check them out!  I colored the image with copics and fussy-cut it.  I used a white gel pen to add polka-dots to the hearts.  I diecut a stitched rectangle, sponged it with Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Ink, spattered it with water, and adhered it to my card base with foam tape.  Since this is a very clean and simple card I also adhered the raccoon with foam tape to give my card lots of dimension.

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you have a wonderful day.

Hugs, Anita 

The Greeting Farm - February Previews Day 4

Hello and welcome to our fourth and final day of The Greeting Farm previews of the February release!  Today I'm sharing a card that features the new Hello Spring 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.  These sweet little Easter kiddos are from the Happy Easter stamp set, which is also part of the February release.   I sponged Cracked Pistachio and Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Inks on Bristol card and then spattered water which I dried with a paper towel.  I diecut the sentiment three times, glued them together to create a thicker diecut, and then adhered it to my card.  I colored the images with copics, cut them with my ScanNCut, and adhered them with foam tape for dimension.  I added some clear sequins for some sparkle.

The new release will be available in the shop tomorrow, February 15th!  Be sure to stop by and join our Blog Hop for a chance to win the new release!  In the meantime, stop by The Greeting Farm Blog to see what the rest of the team created! 

Hugs, Anita

I fell in love with stamp set as soon as I saw it!  So many sweet Anyas and Ians and lots of Easter accessories!  I sponged Cracked Pistachio, Spun Sugar, and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Inks onto Bristol card and spattered it with water.  After it was dry, I stamped a sentiment from the Happy Easter stamp set.  I colored all the images with copics and used my ScanNCut to diecut them.  I adhered all the images to my card with foam tape. 

I hope you stop by tomorrow for our last day of previews.  Then be sure to return on Saturday, February 15th for our Blog Hop!

The Greeting Farm - February Previews Day 2

Hello and welcome to Day 2 of The Greeting Farm previews of the February release!  Today I'm sharing a card that features the new Jellia Mermaid.


Isn't this mermaid beautiful?  The Greeting Farm has amazing mermaids and I'm so happy Marie decided to add another one to the collection - you can never have too many mermaids, right?   I sponged Distress Oxide Inks onto Bristol card and spattered it with water.  After it was dry, I stamped a sentiment from the Lettered stamp set.  I colored Jellia with copics and used my ScanNCut to diecut her.  I adhered her to my card using foam tape and then added a few clear embellishments to look like bubbles.

I hope you stop by tomorrow for our third day of previews.  Be sure to stop by the The Greeting Farm Blog to see what the rest of the team created using Jellia!
