Shine On!

Good Morning! Today I made this card and really had a ton of help from the papers I used. I used the My mind's eye Howdy Doody papers to make that boardwalk. All it needed was some Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a regular old pen to draw in some nails and voila it's a beach boardwalk! The sand was made with the Echo Park Paradise Beach paper and the sky was handmade with several tim holtz distress inks. And the main focus is the Sunny Mae from Some Odd Girl. tfl!

Dad's Day

Howdy! Today I made this quick card and my unused stamp pile continues to get smaller and smaller. I got this sweet Whimsy Wee Bunny Stamp and thought he'd be cute on a father's day card with his striped tie:) So I paired it up with my Lawn Fawn Quinn's ABCs set and voila! tfl!

Bright Sunshiny Day Card

Hi! Here's a small card I made. I used my new Simple Stories Summer Fresh paper and cut out some die cuts. I just love how their paper is divided in different sizes. And I also stamped out some stamps I had never used. Like this cute PI girl I got in a RAK. TFL!

Be Unique Card

Hello! I know this card is pretty busy but I wanted it to look like that so it would look flea market-ish. There is a method to my madness!! I also used some coredinations paper from Joann to try to color and didn't like the way it blended but since the image was already colored I just went with it. I entered this in the greeting farm-Farm Fresh Challenge for this week which was to use stitching (by hand,machine or faux) I opted for faux since it's so much easier. That's all for my card!

Hello Summer Card

Hello Everyone! I made this card last night. I just love the new Some Odd Girl Summer release! Don't you agree that they are just the cutest? I wanted to make a scene with beach day buddies and thought they needed a more ambitious sand castle so by doing a little masking I was able to easily stamp out the smaller sandcastle several times and then dotted them with FS3 Spectrum Noir Marker so it looks more realistic. Anyways, I got to go! TFL!

Aloha Card-ATS Inspiration Challenge

Hi guys! So I'm on a mission to ink up my unloved stamps so here is Hawaiian Brigitta. Isn't she a doll?:) There is an inspiration photo this week at the All that Scraps Wednesday Challenge. This one:

So I drew on the different colored cars(?)on the ferris wheel. And did something a little different. I cut out some hexagons with my slice and put them slanted upward. The middle of the ferris wheel has a red sun like circle so I cut out a sun that kind of looks like that. So that's the card I made for the challenge.TFL!

Hello crafty friends! Today I made this card It was super simple and came together pretty quickly. Besides the fact that I messed up when I was coloring her face and had to give a totally new face. I used the Basic Grey PB&J papers and when I first got these I wasn't sure if I liked them. But they are started to grow on me. AndI now actually like the patterns in the collection. TFL!

Gracias Abuela- TGF Retro Fresh Challenge

Hello Everyone! Today I made this card for the The Greeting Farm Retro Fresh Challenge for the month of May and that is to make a card for your mother or a mother figure. So since I just made a card for my mom I decided to make one for my grandma. My grandma has been so wonderful with me especially the last few years. My grandma is 78 and is such a ball of joy. I went with her last week to get a manicure and everyone at that salon just loved talking to her. Everyone just seemed to want to sit by her. And truthfully I am not one to like manicures but my grandma always insist I go so I can be more feminine. So I go but mainly I go to spend time with her.:) So enough of my rambling.
I made this card for her just to thank her for everything she does. So I used my Spectrum Noir markers again and boy am I loving them. I also used my new Crate Pretty Party Paper. Isn't it cute?! My poor neglected Spotlight girl has never been inked so I took this opportunity to ink her up. TFL!

You're Sew Awesome-SOG Bright Color Challenge

I can't believe I almost missed a Some Odd Girl Challenge!They're having a Facebook Day tomorrow and are having a Bright Color challenge. Ooo, doesn't that sound fun! I knew I had to pair up my cutie patootie In Stitches Tia with my Echo Park Hello Summer Paper Pad! I also had some Bakers Twine Fun! I made a little twine raindbow in the background and I wrapped some turquoise twine around the spool! And if you're wondering what this is, it's a small folded plastic frame I got from Walmart and altered. This was a lot of fun to do! Hope you join in the challenge too!

Sneak into the Garden-Card

Today I got to craftin' much later than I usually do. But I got the idea I had in my head all day finally out of my head and onto a card! I just love my new paper pad My Mind's Eye Howdy Doody! The colors are so soft and perfect I just love it. And that wood plank paper is what inspired the card. I thought it looked just like the fence my Aunt has in her backyard so I turned it over and cut into a fence. I thought my new Tilly stamp from Sweet November Stamps would work perfectly with the theme and then just added some stickers and that was that! I also decided to enter this in the All that Scraps Wednesday Anything Goes Challenge:) TFL!

In the Spotlight! Card-TGF Retro Fresh Challenge

Oh I almost missed this challenge over at the greeting farm and the deadline is 1 day away! Anyways, the challenge is to make a weather themed card. I have TGF sets that are specifically for sunny days or rainy days. But I really wanted to think outside of the box. So I went through my TGF binder and found Spotlight Anya with her fun star sunglasses and knew I wanted to use her on my card.
And doesn't she look so bright and fun in yellow and orange!:) TFL at my card!

You're Super Amazing Card

How's everyone today? I'm doing quite well, I'm pretty happy that I made my goal for my first year of college to make the Dean's List for both semesters. I'm also happy that it's break time.
Anyways, Today I made this card for The Greeting Farm Farm Fresh Challenge for this week. The challenge is to use two greeting farm characters on one card. So I thought this challenge was perfect for my new stamp set Amazing Duo. I used the two characters and the "You're super amazing" sentiment. I also did a little improvising. I almost bought a brick template yesterday and then told myself I could probably make that with my cricut. So I cut out a brick wall from my Batman:Brave and the Bold Cartridge in a square from George and Basic Shapes and Voila! my homemade template! Here's my card!TFL!
