The Greeting Farm - A Gingerbread Christmas

Hi everyone, Jo here. My card today features the Gingerbread Christmas Clear Stamp Set. It's the most wonderful time of the year and these cute images will help you celebrate this holiday season. Are any of you putting gingerbread houses on your to-do list?


All images are colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers that are stamped on watercolor paper. The girl gingerbread cookie is paired up with a glass of milk and the cookie house. I fussy cut them out and adhered to a postage die cut from pattern paper.


These cute gingerbread silhouettes on brown grosgrain ribbon adds some whimsy to the card. Lastly, I placed some "gum-drop" like enamel dots on the corner.

I Am Roses - October IAR Challenge

 Happy Saturday! Here's my card for the new challenge at the I Am Roses Challenge Blog. Ever have one of those cards in your stash that needed a little re-vamping? Well, I found one.


There was nothing wrong with this card by all means but I thought that I could level it up with flowers. I went crazy lol. I first started with the base arrangement above the sheer ribbon. I used a variety of autumnal colors: orange, red, taupe and green.


The gold die cut words were surrounded by taupe, tangerine and green flowers along the border. To see the original card, go here.

Thanks for stopping by and come join our challenge over at the I Am Roses Challenge Blog for amazing prizes.

The Greeting Farm -You're Off The Charts

Hi everyone, Jo here. Today's card features images from the Cheeky Divas Clear Stamp Kit. Soo many divas to choose and create with in this stamp kit. I set the stage & spotlight to highlight this wonderful trio. Can you guess who they represent?

If you guessed Katy Perry, Sia and Pink you are correct! I tried my best to mimic their iconic look. All images are colored with Copic markers. The sentiment "You're Off The Charts" and the musical notes are included in the set.

The background was inked with Distress Oxide Inks in Black Soot and Mustard Seed. I also splashed gold glitter spray on the card. I used masking paper to created that triangle spotlight shape. "Sia" is placed in the center with dimensional adhesive to add some interest. To add some sparkle, a few of the images have Stickles glitter glue on top.

The Greeting Farm - Sending You Hugs & Kisses

Hi everyone, Jo here. Today's card features images from Hugs In A Mug Clear Stamp Set. Ever come across a stamp set where you just can't limit yourself to use only one image? This is the one for me. I incorporated several of these cute critters.

I've used four out of the six character images included in this stamp set. Stamped on watercolor paper and colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. I used a circle grid type of die cut as my frame.

The sentiment I used is "Sending You Mugs & Kisses". All images were fussy cut out and adhered with dimensional foam adhesive, as well as the frame cut out.
