Monday Crew at the Greeting Farm

Guess what I needed to do???
Yep! Make a funny card for one of my friends who is having a birthday!
I think this image by Greeting Farm has the perfect expression on her face for this sentiment!

Monday, as she is called, was stamped in Black Archival Ink on Tim Holtz watercolor paper. I colored her with Distress Markers and a water brush. Love how you can use the Distress markers as watercolors!
Hope this card brought a smile to your face! It sure was fun giving it to my friend!
She didn't mind the sentiment!

Thanks for stopping by!

Items I used on the card are available at the 7Kids Store!

Sweet n Sassy

Good Morning,

Today I am showcasing a Whimsy Stamp by Elisabeth Bell. The images are just so sweet. I paper pieced her hat, top and patches on her pants. It was a little bit of a challenge but I like the way it came out. She also got some heart bling for her necklace. I hope you will join us over at the 7 Kids Anything Goes Challenge. This Wednesday we will be having a special blog hop. See you then!

French Country Card

Happy Friday everyone. I'm here to share my French Country Card. Graphic 45's French Country  8x8 pad is brimming with beautiful images that are perfect to make cards with. You can quickly make elegant cards with just the paper alone.  In this case, I am pretty much down to scraps, so I also pared it with the 6x6paper pad that coordinates with the 8x8 pad. The papers are background patterns and are smaller in size. The circular image is from a scrap piece of Provance paper that I couldn't bear to throw away.

I used  a circle punch to isolate the image

It now is the main focus on my card.  And to think, It could have been tossed into oblivion. LOL

I hope you have a wonderful weekend. Happy crafting.

Sending Happiness with Sylvia Zet's Mountain Lily

Happy Wednesday! It's Karen here to share a new card with you!

Using my Copics, I colored up this precious fairy from Sylvia Zet: Mountain Lily! Isn't she sweet? :o)
After a long stretch of cool-toned cards, I wanted to warm things up. I knew this cutie pie would be perfect for an encouragement card filled with warmth and whimsy. She is accented with Star Dust and her vest/poms are fluffed up with Polar White Flower Soft.

I placed the gorgeous Memory Box Butterfly Vine in her path, cutting it twice to include an offset shadow. I cut it a third time to set additional butterflies around the card, as Mountain Lily whimsically speaks nature's beauty to me. A die from Marianne Design's Anja's Vintage Ornaments 2 set serves to "hold" the layer in place. There are so many lovely dies at 7 Kids to choose from to be a focal point or a perfect accent. :o)

Supplies from the 7 Kids College Fund Store:
Sylvia Zet's Mountain Lily
Marianne Design Anja's Vintage Ornaments 2
Memory Box Butterfly Vine Border
Copic Sketch Markers
Neenah Solar White Smooth Cardstock
Memento Tuxedo Black Ink
Tim Holtz Distress Ink: Broken China and Forest Moss
Stickles: Star Dust
Flower Soft: Polar White
Zip Dry Paper Glue

There is still plenty of time to play along with us in our Anything Goes challenge at the 7 Kids Challenge Blog! We love seeing your projects! Be sure to use products available at the 7 Kids College Fund Store to be eligible to win a gift certificate. Have a blessed and beautiful day! :o)

  I am going to start clearancing out Tiddly Inks clear stamps from the store. I really love these stamps, but they are not selling well for me.

Good for 25% off all Tiddly Ink stamps
Good through 1/27/14
