The Greeting Farm - Ready, Set, Snow!

Hi everyone, Jo here. How's your weather this month? I hope you are staying warm and cozy. This fun Winter themed card was created using clear stamps sets Ready Set Snow and Holiday Anya 11, as well as the Happy Winter Digi Set. Let's get started!

The digital images were printed on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80lb cardstock using an inkjet printer. I die cut a scalloped rectangle frame in red cardstock. Using Distress Oxide Ink in Broken China, I stenciled in clouds and stamped some snowflakes.

All images were colored with Copic Markers and fussy cut out. The sentiment was stamped on a stitched rectangle die cut and adhered to the bottom of the frame.

November I Am Roses Challenge

 **(CLICK HERE: The Greeting Farm November Release Blog Hop)**

Happy Wednesday! Here's my project for the new challenge at the I Am Roses Challenge Blog


I created this wreathe to use as d├ęcor to hang on the wall in my entryway. The original wreathe is from the .99 Store. It was sad and needed a lot of help.


I used a variety of flower sizes ranging from 1/4" - 3", tucked beneath some of the flowers and foliage that came with the original wreathe.


I used the Daisy Brown Stamens as a cute little "mushroom" accent tucked in around the flowers.


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

Next, we introduced 6 cute penguins enjoying a SNOW DAY on the slopes. Lastly, we have ANYA IN ITALY visiting the Colosseum on her scooter.


Here's my card and I'm bringing back these cuties from Snow Day. I had leftover images from my previous project and wanted to make this fun card with these playful penguins. This snow day scene was easy to create.

All images are colored with Copic Markers and fussy cut out. I used a stitched hillside border die to create these snow sloped hills. The mini snowball images I used were pulled from the Holiday Anya 11 Stamp Set.

The Greeting Farm - Here's to a Great Year!

Hi everyone, Jo here. School is in session for most and that is the theme for my card today. "Here's to a Great Year!" using Miss Anya Hobby Clear Stamp Set and the Build-a-Locker Digi Set. Another wonderful mix of clear stamps and digital stamps.

The digital images were printed on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80lb cardstock. The lockers, backpack and all the decorations are from the Build-a-Locker Digi Set. It's so fun to set your scene by layering all the digis, size them up or down, whichever way you choose.

Miss Anya Hobby is colored with Copic Markers, fussy cut out and adhered to the card. The base of the card is covered with pattern paper for the border around the lockers. The digital sentiment was printed out and cut into a fish tail banner peeking out behind Anya.
