Berry sweet...

Olo!

I told you the other day that I had altered the new TGF Stamp Club cutie called Slippers and here she is. I opened up her eyes by wiping the ink away from her lowered lashes before stamping and then used my light box to trace on Fairest's wide eyes. But I didn't want her looking up so I traced Tress' pupils instead. Oh, and I also wiped away her toes and just drew in a straight line to give her a slipper on her bare foot. The easiest alteration came when I cut out a berry from the Summer Squeeze paper and glued it right over the slipper she is originally holding. Now instead of heading off to a midnight ball Slippers is spending a sunny afternoon out in the berry patch.

Okey dokey then, time for me to run and get myself ready for another day of work.
Laters! :)

Make a wish...

Hello, hello!

Well, I didn't get my June Stamp Club stamp from TGF until yesterday but I inked her up as soon as I brought the mail in. This month is a darling version of Cinderella called Slippers. For my first go round of coloring I like to stick with the traditional colors so of course I stuck with the blond hair and blue dress theme. But I've also already altered another version of Slippers with her eyes wide open and I'm looking forward to doing a complete 180 with her on my next card. 

But I digress... getting back to today's card, I paired Slippers with a pretty piece of paper from the October Afternoon Girl Talk collection. That floral had a kind of retro 50's vibe to me which suited her quite nicely. I went with the 'make a wish' sentiment because that song from the cartoon kept running through my head as I was coloring her. You know the song I mean... "A dream is a wish your heart makes, when you're fast asleep...". Unfortunately those are the only words I remember so that is what kept looping over and over and over, LOL! Anywho, once I had that all together the card still needed something. And then it hit me... Slippers needed a few of her mice friends to join her. So I grabbed my Pergamano Flower Girls clear stamp set because it has a couple mice that are the perfect size. Once they were part of the scene my card finally felt complete. :)

Ok, it is back to work for me today so I should go get ready for the day. 
TTYL!

I really do...

Hi there! 

I just read the notice that June's Stamp Club stamp has been mailed off and I realized that I hadn't even colored up May's stamp yet... for shame! So of course I had to ink up Miss Beauty and make amends for that little oversight. I was so excited when I got her because Belle and Tiana are the two princesses that I was most looking forward to in this fairytale theme that Marie is doing. Though I would just die and go to heaven if we get Ariel in mermaid form as well. Oh and since I'm planning on seeing the new movie soon, I think a SSC version of Maleficent would be pretty darn cool come October... ya know, for some cute Halloween cards.  ;)

But I digress, back to Beauty... as you can see I colored her up pretty true to the Disney version. Brown hair, yellow dress and a perfect rose for her sweetie, Beast. I think that's why I chose the sentiment I did... 'cause she really does love him, LOL! The papers are oooold scraps from my handy dandy bag o' scraps and I just finished the card off with some pretty ribbon and a few pearls. 

Alrighty friends, thanks for hanging in there with me and my sporadic posting. I'm still hoping to get back on a more regular schedule soon.

Later gators!

Smile...

Hello, hello!

Boy this month is slipping away faster than I would like. I had all these plans and things I wanted to do before summer really hit and here we are already staring down Memorial day weekend. And around here anyway this is the weekend when the summer tourist season goes into overdrive. So now I'm rushing around trying to get things crossed off my to-do list and it's just not all going to happen... sigh...

One of the things on my list was to get more cards done as I've been missing my crafty room quite a bit lately. So when this TGF Instafun kit arrived in the mail yesterday I made no excuses and dove right in. I'm not a big fan of the mustache trend but Party Props Anya was way too cute to pass up and she makes for a great birthday card. I used some of the Bella Blvd paper from the kit as well as the cardstock and colored Anya to match. The sentiment and other goodies were supplemented from my stash. It really got my creative juices flowing again and if I didn't have to go to town today I would be right back in there working on another card. Alas, I doubt I get back home early enough to make that happen. Hopefully I don't lose too much momentum and am back with another card come Friday... fingers crossed! LOL  :)

Later gators!   

Supply list:
cardstock- Bazzill and Copic X-Press It

Hello there...

Good morning!

Sorry that it's been awhile since my last post. I wish I could say that it was because of fun and exciting things but not so much. My grandma had a heart attack last week and is in the hospital. She's getting better but as you can imagine the entire family has been rallying around her so the usual schedules kind of get tossed out the window. Thankfully she should be coming home today to heal and get her strength back before possibly going in for surgery at a later date.

So this card has actually been a work in progress over the past four days or so. I colored up another of my new Greeting Farm stamps, Miss Anya Summer and matched her to some new Echo Park papers. I really love this little gal and can see so many head swapping possibilities with her. As I was putting the card together I spotted this little kitty that was left over from the Hallobean alteration that I did a couple weeks ago. He was too cute not to get on a card so I colored him up as well and now Miss Anya has a new best friend. This actually got me to thinking about how great a Miss Anya/My Guy Ian pet set(s) would be. Heck you could have one with just cats and another with a handful of different pups for Anya and Ian to walk. Wouldn't that be fantastic?! Hmmm... maybe I should run this idea by Marie... :)

Ok then, thanks for stopping by and hopefully I'll be back with something to share much sooner than this last week allowed.

All the boys...

Hey there!

Well, there's nothing like starting off the week with an  emergency trip to the dentist... ugh. It knocked me off my feet for a full day and I'm just now getting back into 100% mode. Needless to say, it took me a couple days to get into the crafty room but the silver lining is that it gave me some time for a few more stamp orders to arrive. ;)

One of which was another package from The Greeting Farm containing the May release stamps. I was so super duper excited to see a new Miss Anya set that I hit the order button right away. I also got the WS Wild Child set but I honestly didn't think it would be the first one that I reached for... especially not the foxy little dude Sprout. But here we are... go figure! I did do a bit of altering by changing out his eyes for WS Edward's eyes, just because they are my favorite WS boy eyes that Marie has done. Oh, and I also trimmed off his tail when I cut him out but otherwise not too much of a change. 
I paired Foxy up with the Max paper collection from Bella Blvd and was delighted to find that little fox sticker included in the set... talk about being meant to be! The sentiment is also from that same sticker sheet and I just think it is really sweet. I finished off the card by stamping "Happy Birthday" in the center. I gotta say, I don't make boy cards nearly as often as girlie cards but when I do they end up being some of my faves. 

Okey dokey then, enjoy your day and I'll check back in with ya tomorrow. :)

Happy Birthday...

Hi there!

This was a great mail weekend for me. I got a couple of stamp orders, one of which was the Magical Bean kit from The Greeting Farm... yeah! Being a short haired girl myself, I couldn't wait to ink up this new Bean who is exclusive to the kit. I love her sweet bobbed hair-do and flirty party dress. With those flowers in her hair I pictured Magical going to an evening garden party and I had just the paper to make that vision come to life. Don't those strings of lights look like they are glowing against a dusky night sky? I have a feeling that this wee Bean will be the belle of the bash, LOL! 
I'm also playing along in this week's Farm Fresh Challenge to use buttons and bows. Considering twine and buttons are a couple of my go-to embellishments this was an easy one. Though I couldn't resist sprinkling in a few sequins as well. ;)     
Alrighty, one more thing before I leave ya for the day... the Magical Bean kit came with 10 Beans, eight of which where previously released as clear stamp sets. Because I already own those clear Beans I decided to cut this set apart and put the repeats up for sale over in my 1000 Sheets Card Shop. So if anyone out there is looking for one or two Beans to fill out a collection this could be just what you are looking for. I'm putting them up for $6 each plus $2 sh/h within the U.S. International shipping will be $5 and I'm willing to combine any orders to save on shipping.

Okey dokey then, have a great Monday!  :)

Lordy bees...

Hello, hello!

Back before Halloween I had printed off this little Hallobean digi so that I could use her witchy hat on another stamp. But even after I had cut away the hat she was too cute for me to just toss in the trash. So I've hung on to her, waiting for inspiration to strike on how I might use this 'lobotomized' lass on a card. Finally I was going through images yesterday and when I came across Hallobean again I thought that I could use my light box to draw in the top of her head and by adding a May Day crown of flowers it would hide the seam between the original stamp and my new addition to her look... so that's exactly what I did. I also cut away the long trailing parts of her scarf to lighten up her ensemble into a more spring inspired look. Now this Bean is ready to do some May Day mischief, leaving bouquets of flowers at all of her neighbor's doors. ;)
Once again I found myself reaching for these Garden Party papers by Pebbles. They've been quite the favorite of mine this spring. I'm pretty sure this is the first time I've used the bee paper at least. And how could I not use that sentiment stamp with all those bees buzzing in the background... it was too perfect of a pairing, LOL!

Anywho, I hope you are enjoying a lovely week so far.
Toodles!

How've you bean...

Good morning!

It's been a while since I've played along in the Farm Fresh challenge over at The Greeting Farm and since I recently got my hands on Frappi Anya it was the perfect time to join the fun. This week's challenge is to use pastel colors so I flipped through my paper scraps until this pretty stripe caught my eye... talk about pastel perfection, LOL! 
Now I myself am not a coffee drinker but I do love a good frappuccino from Starbucks. My favorite one? Why, it is vanilla bean with two pumps hazelnut and two pumps toffee nut. It tastes like drinking a cut out cookie... mmmmm yummy! So of course I had to give Anya her own vanilla bean frap complete with the little specks of vanilla floating throughout. And I figured that I could still get away with using that sentiment because it could easily be a play off the vanilla bean rather than a coffee bean. ;)

Well, I should get a move on. Have a good one everybody!

You will be missed...

Olo!

We've had a totally fabulous UPS delivery lady for years and she is retiring this week so I thought it would be nice to make her a personalized card. While many will miss her smiling face as she dropped off our packages, I think the neighborhood pups may miss her most of all. She was always ready with a treat and not a single wagging tail was ever left out. Heck, I'm pretty sure she even new most of their names as well, LOL! 
It also gave me a great excuse to ink up this little truck stamp set that I got recently. All I needed to go along with it was a "Delivery Anya". So I grabbed Picture Perfect Anya for her head and altered Twirl Anya's shirt just a bit until I had the perfect Anya for my card.

Alrighty, time for me to tackle another busy day.
Laters!

Get well soon...

Hello, hello!

Apparently there is nothing like getting a new stamp to get the creative juices flowing, LOL! This month's addition to the TGF stamp club arrived in my mailbox and I couldn't wait to put her on a card. After getting three princesses in a row I was pleasantly surprised to see Hood here... it's good to know that the theme seems to be encompassing all the different fairy tales. Playing off the story's sick grandma, it seemed like a no-brainer to make this a get well type of card.  ;)

I'm also entering Hood into this week's Farm Fresh challenge, which is flower power. With that bit of floral paper up in the corner and the cute button that I've been saving to use on just the right card, I think it qualifies. :)

Ok, time for me to run.

Hello...

Hey there!

I know it hasn't been that long since I posted the last SSC Slumber card but I got my light box back in commission so I was able to finish altering this version of her and get her on a card. I like her so much with her new open eyes that I didn't want to wait any longer to post this one. I used Fairest as my template to trace on the new eyes and just moved the pupils down a bit as well. I've paired my not-so-sleepy Slumber with a pretty new paper pad by My Mind's Eye, this Now & Then collection is really gorgeous.
While I was putting this card together I decided to try out the white version of the Pebbles rub-ons that I had... afraid to find out that I would have to chuck them just like the gold ones. I am happy to report that the white still went on like butter. Whew, what a relief! I'm still super bummed about the crappy gold ones but at least I should be able to use up this sheet of sentiments at my leisure. :)

Ok then, thanks for dropping by and I'll catch ya on the flip side!

Happy Birthday...

Olo!

So far it's shaping up to be a beautiful weekend. When the sun is shining like this it has me itchin' to get out and start planting some flowers but the chilly nights are still making it a bit early for that. So instead, I find myself stamping in the crafty room, which is always a good time too. :)

I'm entering today's card into this week's FFF challenge over at The Greeting Farm, it's an easy peasy one... paper piecing. Up Up Bean has been patiently waiting on my desk to see a little inky love and this seemed like just the challenge for her. I used some new Doodlebug paper to piece both her hat and the balloons. I added a bit of shading to both with my trusty Copics and I really like how the balloons now look kinda transparent with confetti flying inside them. And since Up Up looks to be celebrating I went ahead and made this a CAS birthday card.

Ok then, time for me to get ready for work. 
Have a good one!

Enjoy your special day...

Hello, hello! 

I received the third installment of my Greeting Farm SSC subscription this past weekend and was delighted to see the princess theme continue. This little sleeping beauty is called Slumber... so cute! I actually stamped up a version of her without the closed eyes and was going to open them up with some altering but alas, after ten years the light bulb in my faithful old lightbox finally went out. So I'm either going to have to replace the bulb or look for a new one. Despite the set back I decided to go ahead and make a card with Slumber just how she is and I have to admit that even with closed eyes she's totes adorbs. She's actually very demure and dainty looking as she bats those long lashes of hers don'tcha think?  :)

And since I was coloring up a TGF stamp I decided to check out this week's FFF challenge and play along. It's an easy one... birthday cards, all I needed was the right sentiment and Slumber makes for a perfectly girlie little birthday card. I've gotta say, it's been so much fun getting these stamp club stamps each month that I went ahead and signed back up for another term and I'm keeping my fingers crossed for TGF versions of Belle and Tiana soon.  ;)

Toodles!

You're freakin' great...

Hey there! 

Sorry about my absence the last few days but I've had some stuff come up that is taking a lot of my time. It's not health issues or anything, everyone is fine, but it is just something I'm dealing with at the moment and it will probably keep my posting here kinda erratic for the next week or so. But that doesn't mean I won't try to make it into my crafty room every chance that I get. ;)

Yesterday I sat down at my desk with the goal of getting a card done for this week's Farm Fresh challenge over at The Greeting Farm. It's a photo inspiration, which I'm always drawn to, and I took the navy/aqua/mint/cream color combo for my inspiration. I've used a couple of Creepers along with a bit of altering to create this sassy little diva. I've had the head of the Hallo Bride Creeper digi sitting on my desk ever since I used her body this past Halloween and I thought that with just a bit of a hair cut she could make for a cute short haired chick. Then I paired her up with Creeper Piper's body and she was ready to strut her stuff. I may be biased but I think she turned out pretty cool. :)

Alrighty then, I'll catch ya later!

I like you a latte...

Hi guys!

Sorry about being MIA these last couple days, it was the Red, Wine, and Chocolate weekend in town so I was extra busy at work. Which wouldn't have been so bad if we hadn't have gotten slammed with snow all day Saturday. I'm really not a fan of that ol' groundhog who predicted six more weeks of winter because this is getting ridiculous.

All that white on the ground must have been what inspired me to go ahead and make another winter themed card. I know I mentioned a few weeks back that I had originally gotten Skyward Anya for her altering capabilities and this amalgamation of Anyas is the result of that idea. I used Cuddle Anya's head with the face on her hat wiped away and the bear ears trimmed off. I then paired Skyward's body with Latte Anya's to-go cup and a drawn in arm and they all came together to make this winter ready sweetie. The colors for her outfit where actually inspired by my own winter coat and scarf... it's definitely hard to miss that bright orange when you are out in a winter wonderland, LOL! 

Alrighty then, time to get another week started.
TTYL!

Love you...

Happy Valentine's Day!

I got the final Night Out Miss Anya that was left to be colored onto my last Valentine for the year. This little girlie is looking pretty in pink for her big romantic date with Ian tonight. Hmmm... which has me thinking, we really need a Night Out Ian set to go with. I would totally buy that in a heart beat! I guess I'll just have to keep my fingers crossed that Marie will grant my wish someday soon. :)
The papers are from last year's Basic Grey collection called True Love and to be honest I didn't really think I would use this particular print with the roses, certainly not first out of the pad any way. But as per usual lately, I'm drawn to anything that makes the creating process quick and easy. A bit of sparkle and a pearl heart for Anya to hold on to and I was done. 

Alrighty then, be sure to eat some chocolate today because we all know that it what makes Valentine's Day really great, LOL! ;)

As wonderful as you...

Good morning! 

Anyone out there a Walking Dead fan? I was so excited to see it make it's return last night. Even though I know that there is no way I would ever survive a zombie apocalypse (coloring with Copics is hardly a top survival skill, LOL)... I love this show. And what's the best way to kill time during commercial breaks? Why stamping and making a card of course. ;)

How could I not, once this darling new stamp arrived in my mailbox this weekend? This is Tress and she is the newest release from The Greeting Farm's SS Stamp Club. After Fairest last month I'm beginning to notice a theme... princesses! I hope it continues because I really want to see TGF versions of Belle and Ariel in the future too. As for Tress here, well, I think she is too cute for words. I did alter her a bit by getting rid of her nose but that is just personal preference as I like TGF images sans noses. And boy was that hair fun to color, which there is no shortage of with this pretty princess. Garden Party paper made it it's way onto another card already... I told you not to be surprised. Those pastels were just too lovely not to pair up with Tress.

Well, I've got some errands to run and a haircut appointment to get to so I'll catch y'all later.
Toodles!

You're Dreamy...

Olo!

TGIF my friends! We are in the midst of a serious cold snap at the moment. I watched the temp dive down into the negative degrees the other night and I gotta say that it makes getting out of a nice, warm bed very hard in the morning. If I didn't have to get ready for work I'm thinkin' this would be a major sleep in day. Alas, I must bundle up and brave the big freeze. :)

I've got another Valentine card to share today. I got this Valentine Anya digi stamp from a TGF challenge win and I didn't want to miss getting her on to a card before the big happy heart day arrived. The paper and stickers all come from the new Doodlebug Sweetheart collection... I've said it before and I'll say it again, Doodlebug and TGF were made for each other. No wonder Anya looks right at home here.  ;)

Well thanks for stopping by!
Laters!

Thanks a million...

Olo!

Winter finally caught up with us the past few days, there's nothing like digging your car out from under several inches of snow early in the morning. If you couldn't tell, that was said in my best sarcastic tone. ;)
Oh well, I should just be happy it held off this late into the season. If I'm lucky this will be all we get and spring will be right around the corner... it is the last day of January after all. 

Ok, whine about the weather is officially over. Moving on to my card for today... it's another Greeting Farm girlie from the Night Out set. This one is a bit fancier than the last one I inked up, what with her glitzy earrings and clutch. And since she looked like a million bucks I thought it would be clever to pair her up with that "thanks a million" sentiment. When I started coloring her it was with the intention of entering her into the red, white, and blue challenge but I just couldn't stick to that patriotic color scheme so I ended up finding that pretty blue floral instead. All in all, I'm liking how this one came together. :)

TGIF and have a great weekend my friends!
