Happy July 1st everyone, thank you so much for joining us on our Release Day! With the Film Strip die, Heart die, and Polaroid die, it's a Picture Perfect kind of day! Last week we had the pleasure of debuting the set of those threes dies, as well as (CC) Tuesday Premiere and the new Cheeky Lessons, and today you have the opportunity to WIN it all!

Here is my card using CC Tuesday Premiere. I've seen this a lot in Pinterest, where they have party photo booths with props. Using the Polaroid die, I used it as a frame and Tuesday is like taking a "Superstar" mugshot. LOL. She's all decked out in her leopard print dress (I can't get enough of this print)!

She has a glittered crown and some sparkly red shoes. She is so ready to party!

FFF - School's Out

Hey everyone, it's Farm Fresh Friday today! Check it out over at The Greeting Farm Blog

If you've been over to the TGF blog this week, you know that it's been sneak peeks of the July Release. I used the Film & Polaroid Die Set. Love the Polaroid, again perfect size for cards.

This would be a cute card to give to a teacher, just insert the child's/student's photo in the Polaroid. I used Cheeky Geeky and colored her with my Copics. Her glasses are so thin, I used a fine tip Sharpie marker to color it, then added some Xmas Red Stickles for some sparkle. I drew some polka dots on her hair band and her vest.

Okay guys, come and play along with us and enter your project over at the TGF Blog!

TGF July Preview - Cheeky Lessons & Heart Die

It's the end of the month and it's time for July Previews over at The Greeting Farm. If you missed out on yesterday's sneak peak, check it out. 

Well today's preview is Cheeky Lessons & a Heart Die (this die comes in a 3 piece die set).  The Cheeky gals are just so cute and sexy. I colored her with my Copics. I made a video tutorial on how I created that leopard/cheetah pattern on her dress here. I had to add mini rhinestones to her glasses. Don't forget the Stickles on the apple and her red shoes. She is workin' it!

The Heart Die is the perfect size for cards, at least I think. It's not too big or too small. I used the die on red polka dot dp. The "Teacher's Pet" sentiment is from Anya Says (retired).

On my second card, I just used the Heart Die on red glittered paper. I kept the cardstock to black & white. I used an apple embossing folder that fit with the school theme. Some alpha stickers and an assortment of washi/paper tapes were added.

Don't forget to comment here and all the other DT's blogs, then back to the TGF Blog. GOOD LUCK!!

Stay tuned for the last July Preview tomorrow over at the TGF Blog. You're going to DIE!

FFF - Summer Fun

TGIF!! Oh boy June is coming to an end, one more week! Next week is July previews, eeeeeek! First let's get to this Farm Fresh Friday.

I used Winky Bean and I gave her hair a little trim =) She looks cute in smaller pigtails, I just wanted to switch it up since the last two Winky images were the same. I fussy cut her leaving out all the other images that came with the stamp. She is colored with Copics and glittered all over with Stickles. 

I went for a beachy summer theme. She looks like she's wearing a sarong and a bikini top. I cut some flourishes out to mimic splashes of water. The sentiment "wanna play?" is from Anya Says.

This is a fun theme to play with for this challenge. Come on over to the TGF Blog and play along with us.

GVT - Sketch

Hi all! It's Sketch time for this Garden Variety Tuesday challenge over at The Greeting Farm Blog.

Here is the Sketch for you to play with:

And here is my card.

I kept my interpretation of this sketch simple. You can embellish the heck out of it if you like =). I love her little outfit, I paper pieced it with the coordinating DP. The only parts of the image (Baby Anya & Ian) that were colored with my Copics were the face, hair and the bow. I added some Stickles to the bow for some sparkle.

Easy peasy, come and give this sketch a try using TGF images and enter it over at the TGF Blog.

FFF - Banners or Flags

Woohoo it's Friday! To start off the day, I'm sharing with you my Farm Fresh Friday challenge project.

Here is the theme:

Sounds fun, huh? The stamp I used is the Baby Anya & Ian set. This set can be either used for a girl or a boy, I chose boy this time.

He's colored with my Copics, placed on dimensional pop dots and I added some Stickles Star Dust to the propeller on his hat and outfit. For the banner I used the MFT Rounded Banner Trio dies. I used some alpha stickers to spell out "little boy". Also, I placed some coordinating designer paper using circle punches. 

Head on over to the TGF Blog to for more details and to also see the other fabulous projects from the Designers.

GVT - Girly Girl

Garden Variety Tuesday time! Hey guys I am hosting this challenge over at The Greeting Farm Blog today. The theme I chose is "Girly Girl". 

I made this card using the new Baby Anya & Ian stamp set. I stamped the giraffe on designer paper. I colored the spots with my Copics, as well as the heart. I added some Star Dust Stickles on her bum. I stamped the sentiment on some vellum that's embossed in white embossing powder. 

I had this banner stamp and embossed it on vellum paper, underneath it I put some text paper. There is also text paper under the circle cut out.

To add some more girlyness to this card, I used some pink/white flowers from I Am Roses and also added some white stamens. Another piece I added from my stash of scraps was this embossed doily stamp image.

I went for a girly, frilly, delicate and sweet look for this challenge =) Come play and enter for a TGF image!

FFF - Bold & Bright Birthday

Happy Friday! It's.....

at The Greeting Farm. The challenge is "Bold & Bright Birthday". I was going through my paper stacks, I had such a hard time looking for bright colors. I have a lot of pastels but hardly any brights. Luckily I was able to find some in my stash.

I am using the new WS Charlotte Chic. I colored her with my Copics. To give her curly hair some texture, instead of using brush stokes to apply the color from the marker, I used a dotting technique. Basically making little tiny dots using the tip of the marker, I did this several times with different colors to get a dimensional look.

I used some alpha stickers "hb2u" (happy birthday to you). I didn't add glitter this time, shocking right? So this is my card, I hope you guys play along with us.

GVT - 1/5/5

Hello it's me again. It's the Garden Variety Tuesday challenge over at The Greeting Farm. Here is my card using the NEW June Release Baby Onesie Die. This is one of my favorite dies that I own so far. It is so stinkin' cute!

This challenge is 1-5-5...You can use 1 of something, 5 of something and so on. For this card, my 1 is the Baby Onesie Die, the 5 is five pattern papers, and the other 5 is five embellishments ( 2 mini clothespins and 3 buttons).

This is a very simple baby card and I just love how it turned out (because if I didn't, I wouldn't be showing it...LOL). So head on over to the TGF Blog and play along!
