The Greeting Farm Birthday Anya Card…

Hi everyone! Sharing a birthday card I made for one of our granddaughters that just turned 13!  Hard to believe! They grow up so fast!

Birthday Anya was stamped in the MISTI with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored with Copic Sketch markers.  I cut her out by hand…fun to visit my coloring and cutting days again!

So fun… I love coloring redheads…Lilli is one of our 7 grands with red hair! hehe  She loves pink! She loves to make cards too…for her birthday she wanted Distress Ink mini ink pads…sure made it easy for grandma! lol

I love my days stamping/cardmaking with the grandkids.  We had lots of fun making Valentines.  I’ll share the ones I made soon…we’re late since our family party was just Sunday night.

The dies and stamps I used are linked below!  Thanks for stopping by!

the ROYAL Battle continues…week #3

The Royal Battle, over at the Greeting Farm is a battle of teams, and depends entirely on VOTING. It goes like this: there are teams of three to five players. Each Wednesday a new Battle challenge is issued. One of the team members has to make a card to meet the Battle challenge. Folks have a chance to vote for three cards each week. The top half with the most votes moves to the next Battle. Each team member has to take one turn. Hopefully, we make it to the final round and a chance to win a big prize.
The team I am playing with is called the Card Sprouts…cool! The Greeting Farm has a line of stamps called the “Sprouts”. This week the challenge is to create a scrapbook page and it is Kim’s turn to play for our team! Twenty five teams playing this week and the cut happens Tuesday night at midnight…Twelve teams will carry on to next week! We need your vote!!! Here’s a link to Kim’s submission for the Card Sprouts! Leave a comment and that counts for a vote…for some reason some of the pictures aren’t showing up…you can see a closer picture of Kim’s page HERE,  the last photo in the post.   Hope you like it and vote for us!

I wanted to create a card for my post today using one of The Greeting Farm stamps that hadn’t seen ink yet!  I love postal “things”  so I had to have this mail carrier cutie!!!  Her name is Bree.  Our youngest daughter’s name is Breanna so then I really had to have her!  I’m linking her up to Monday Mania on the Club Anya blog,  the Pink Elephant Challenge blog – 1 image, 2 dies (standard circle and scallop circle), 3 of your favorite embellishment (three brads) and Stamp With Fun – a sketch.

A close up of the charm…I partially closed the card.  It does come all the way up to lay flat and fit in an A2 envelope!  I really like this idea and think I’ll be using it again.  You could really bling it up more for a girl and more for a boy too.  This was just all  I could come up with Sunday a.m.! lol

Miss Anya all fine and fancy….

dressed for the holiday with a flower in her hair and probably mistletoe behind her back!!!! I LOVE how these embossing folders worked on this Bazzil cardstock! Two are from Stampin Up and the words  from Sizzix but I think they are deeper than some or something! Anya is colored with copic sketch markers.

I used the sketch from The Farm Fresh Friday post on The Greeting Farm’s blog by Mercy.

more fun with copics, nestabilities dies, stamps and punches! Spellbinders, Martha Stewart, Punch Bunch, EK Success and a button brad from Making Memories.
Not sure what I’ll do with this card…Breanna thought she looked like a “call” girl… EEK!
I don’t usually do that style!!! I’m thinking she’s headed for a Summer birthday party. lol

The trip of your dreams…

4018776243_fccf015961_o

I don’t think about going anywhere very often, but I enjoy stamping about traveling! lol  I used some 7 gypsies papers and a tag.  The Anya shopping stamp is from The Greeting Farm…the trip of your dreams is a stamp from B Line Designs…I think the Post Card stamp is Inkadinkado. Anya is colored with copic sketch markers!

I suppose the real trip of my dreams would be stamp shopping and purchasing one of everything! But where to put it all would be a problem,  so I better just be happy and I am!  Internet shopping is so easy and the Greeting Farm has great stamps and more coming out soon!!!

Hope you’re enjoying a sunshiny day!  It’s nice here in Iowa!

Happy Anyaversary Blog Hop

Hope and Grace Snuggle – I like to call it Bunny Hugs!

Be sure to click to see all the dimension…lots of cutting and layering…tried to get it to show up in the photos!

I love the Anya stamps from the Greeting Farm and today on their Anyaversary they are introducing more new Anya’s and new images! I’ve been anxious to get this new to me Snuggle Bunny Sprout stamped up and colored and went ahead and did her not even thinking that an Anya would have been better! oh my mind!!! Anyway, I do have an Anya post here and she’s cool!

Here’s a little different angle shot of this snuggle bunny gal…love her and I’ll be posting more Anyas soon!


The pattern paper I used here is Girl Friday by Cosmo Cricket…oh HOW can two sheets of double sided paper have so many colors of pink in them! It was a challenge to decide which copics to use. I ended up using the R3 series. The flower is a Quickutz die and the button is from a Making Memories embellishment jar.

My inspiration for this card came from Mariska…a wonderful copic artist!

Thanks for “hopping” by! I appreciate it!

InkyDTcall

I just found out about this rubber stamp company yesterday and placed an order today! My submission is going to have to be a creation from another stamp company, since I’m so late finding out.  I am looking forward to creating with the new stamps when they arrive!  They are really cute, sweet girl images….

This card I’m submitting is Anya from the Greeting Farm.  I’ve colored her multiple times with copic sketch markers and layered her hair, puffy sleeves, bow and basket of flowers.  I chose this Basic Grey paper from a 6×6 pattern paper pad.  The stamped sentiment is from Hero Arts.

Thank  you looking and comments received are truly appreciated!

Take good care…

I  used the sketch from the Friday Sketchers challenge blog…an easy one to follow.

The background stamp is a Hero Arts stamp and so is the sentiment.  Nestabilities oval dies and SU apple green ribbon…eek…a little on the bright side! lol   The paper flowers are from Doodlebug.

The image is from the Rain, Snow, Shine Anya set from The Greeting Farm.   She’s colored with copic sketch markers.
