Dreams do come true...

Hi there! 

For my card today I pulled out the Ever After stamp kit to create a super cute scene. There are so many adorable little Beans in this set, all dressed up like characters from a fairy tale, it was hard to pick just two to color up. When I finally settled on this couple I ended up going with an Ariel and Prince Eric look for them. And I can't even tell you how much I love the castle that is included in the set as well. I stamped it in grey tones and kept my Copic colors less intense to try and make it look like it was further in the background. 
There is good news too if you missed out on ordering this set the first time it was available... May 1st-5th pre-orders will go up in the TGF store for not only the new Aloha stamp kit but also many of the past kits which includes Ever After! So mark your calendars if you've had some of these on your stampy wish list, I know I will be hitting the store first thing!  ;)

Have a great weekend everybody!

Good morning!

Today I've made a card for this week's Bellarific Friday Challenge which is Birthday Wishes. Tiny Townies Birthday Party was the perfect stamp and I was excited to have the perfect reason to finally get them on a card. I stamped these party girls on some vintage cream cardstock using a dark brown ink then proceeded to color them up in some bright, happy colors. Then I masked off the balloons and stamped on these cool streamers to make the scene extra festive. A sprinkling of matching sequins and this birthday card was fun and done.  :)

Alrighty, it's off to work for me. Have a good one!

You always shine...

Hi there! 

Ok, so I swear this is my last unicorn/pegasus card that I'll be posting this week. But I really wanted to get both the pegasus from the Magical Friends set and the Your Wings pegasus on a card together. These cuties can take to the skies and soar as far as their imaginations can take them. I also couldn't resist adding another winged friend from the old Never Ever set... a tiny version of the Tink Fairy! I created the watercolor background myself by 'smooshing' on four different Distress Ink colors. I was going for an abstract sunrise kind of look and I think I pulled it off. ;)
This card is up over on The Greeting Farm blog today too as part of the CardMaker Magazine blog hop that is going on. So be sure to check that out and get in on the fun!

Supply list:
cardstock- Bazzill, Copic X-Press It and Watercolor paper
stamps- The Greeting Farm (Magical Friends set, Your Wings set, Sparkle & Shine set, Never Ever set)

Show your wings...

Hello, hello! 

It's time to take to the skies with the super cute new pegasus set called Your Wings. I love it so much that when it came time to make my card I used every single stamp in the set, plus an extra from Glitter Bomb, to create this scene. Everything just works so perfectly together that how could I not? I was masking off stamps like crazy to give the illusion of layers on a primarily one layer card. Though I couldn't resist throwing on that stitched sun die and a few sequins to really help pull everything together. Another bright and happy card with these happy new magical ponies... so much fun!

Toodles!  :)

Hello my friend...

Good morning! 

OMGosh, can you believe how quickly these new unicorn sets sold out yesterday? Talk about flying off the shelves! Luckily a restock is due to hit the store sometime tomorrow so don't despair if you missed out yesterday. For my card today I used the Hello Unicorn set and I think she looks to be the happiest cutie of the bunch. I paired her up with some scribble star stamps and a bright neon ombre ink pad. It was a lot of fun trying to match her hair to those neon hues. And really that is what this card is all about... stamps, Copics and ink. I kinda can't believe I skipped the pretty papers once again! Still, I love how this card turned out paper or no.  :)

Hope your week is off to a great start. Laters! 
Supply list:
cardstock- Papertrey Ink and Copic X-Press It

Hope your day is magical...

Hello, hello!

We've got a very special release day that fans of the Magical Friends set are going to go crazy for! Today we are introducing three new 3"x4" clear sets, each one featuring either a sweet unicorn or lovely pegasus. For my card I chose to ink up not only the fabulous little unicorn from the Magical Day set but I also used the included sentiment and little hearts and small hexagons stamps as well. After that, the first thing I pulled for my card was this pretty ombre stripe washi tape and all of my Copic colors and my treatment of her beautiful main and tail were directly inspired by it. I can't even tell you how much fun I had putting this card together!  :)

Now be sure to check out the TGF blog to see what my fellow Farmers have created with these magical new stamps!

Hi sweetie...


I've had quite the busy week and it hasn't left me with a whole lot of crafty time. So when I did finally find myself sitting at my desk I needed something quick and cute o work with. Wouldn't you know that the new For You Anya clear stamp fit that bill to a 'T'. I really can't get over her little belly shirt... I kinda want to poke her like the Pillsbury Dough Boy, LOL! It's been so unseasonably hot here that I have been craving ice cream treats all week so I really couldn't resist giving Anya the fudge-cicle that I wish I had. If it was possible to be jealous of a stamp I think that I am.  ;)

Anywho... another sweet and simple card in the bank. Now I have to go tackle the coming weekend. Have a good one everybody!  :)
