You can always read me...

Hello, hello!

I'm playing with another new Dreamerland cutie from the summer release today. This one is called Good Reading Companion and it features this darling girl in her summer dress reading away the afternoon with her four legged friend. I really love the unique perspective on this image, like you the viewer are standing behind them looking down, you just don't see that a lot. Rather than coloring in a full scene and trying to transition from the grass up into other elements I decided to grab some pretty papers from October Afternoon that tied into the whole reading theme of the card instead. I like how the book print paper looks like it could be the page she is currently reading and of course I pulled my inspiration for her dress from the little bit of pretty floral paper that I used as well. I can't tell you how much I wish I could trade places with her and just while away the hours with a good historical romance novel right about now, LOL! Alas, the busy days keeping rolling on... oh well at least I can still make time for my coloring. ;)

Toodles!

Making it shine...

Hello crafty friends! 

In case you hadn't heard the news yet, the A Day For Daisies digital stamp shop is closing its doors at the end of the month. This news breaks my heart as I have been a long time fan of Tammy's art work. I even went back into my blog archives to see when I posted my first ADFD card and it was all the way back in 2012. As I scrolled through them it was fun seeing all those cards again, many of which stick with me as some of my own personal faves during all my many years of card making. More recently I haven't had as much time as I would like to get more of these images onto cards but I just had to take a moment to say my own goodbye to a wonderful little shop. While I've still got plenty of great ADFD digis on my hard drive, I couldn't help but take advantage of the current 20% OFF the entire store sale and add a few more lovelies to my collection. This Love of Birds image was one of them and as always I just adore the moods that are captured in these loose and flowing lines. It really does feel like a bit of magic watching them come to life as you add color, fleshing them out into solid looking characters that totally transport you into their stories. And while I am sad no new images will be coming our way, I am grateful for the ones I have and look forward to continuing to create with them all for many more years to come. So here's to wishing Tammy all the best in wherever her creative journey takes her next and thank you for your amazing contribution to this wonderful hobby of ours. :) 

Hugs!

Hi all! For my card today I have paired this sweet gal from the new Miss Anya Samoyed set with the It's Your Birthday set that was released earlier this year. Her expression and the way she is holding her hands to her chest made her look so excited, like she had just walked into a surprise party thrown in her honor. So I pulled some pretty papers and colored her and the simple birthday scene to match. I even raided my long neglected ribbon stash to tie a pretty bow for some added decoration.

Alrighty, I won't keep ya... have fun hopping!

Listen to this...

Good morning! 
 
After a break last weekend for the big release I am back on the Bellariffic blog with another scenic Saturday card to share with you. This week I took advantage of the fact that the fun Cork Board backdrop is the stamp of the month for July and used it to show that not all scenes have to be vast landscapes going off into the distance. Sometimes close, intimate vignettes can be just as fun and effective in getting your message across. I thought it would be a cute pairing to use Call Me Teeny Tiny Townie in front of the Cork Board to create a sort of home office type snapshot, don't you just love that old rotary phone? I can still remember the wall mounted rotary phone that used to be in my mom's kitchen when we were growing up. I swear the cord on that phone could stretch half way across the house! Now once Call Me was stamped on the card stock I masked her off then repeatedly stamped and masked the little notes that come with the Cork Board because I figured if this Teeny Tiny Townie was anything like me she would have random notes all over the place, LOL! The board itself was the last image to be stamped so that once all the masks were removed it was pushed all the way to the back of the scene, framing everything beautifully.

Before I leave you, don't forget that the new release is in the store and you still have until the 15th to take advantage of the 15% OFF sale that is good on everything, not just the new stamps. Which makes the stamp of the month deal even sweeter, just use the code NR0719 when you check out.  :)

Loving Today...

 
TGIF!
 
Are you ready for the fourth and final day of the Greeting Farm's July release previews? We are wrapping things up with a new clear set for all you planner peeps called, This Day. This Day includes all these great handwritten day of the week abbreviations as well as a bunch of extras and sentiments. Since I am not one who keeps a planner I used the abbreviations to create a colorful backdrop for this sweet gal from the new Miss Anya Samoyed set. By stamping the words in a variety of colors they give the card a bright and cheery vibe to go along with the positive message. :)

Ok, be sure to head on over to the TGF blog to see the fab cards that my fellow Farmers have created using the This Day set. And I will see you on Monday for the official blog hop and a chance for some lucky individual to win the entire July release!  :)

It's a slumber party...


 
Hey there!

We are back with day three of the Greeting Farm's July release and today we are introducing the new mini Slumber set. This sweet mini set includes three little sleep over pals all bundled up in their sleeping bags and two coordinating sentiments. Of course I had to create a bird's eye view scene of these cuties camped out together on the living room floor surrounded by popcorn and their phones, because you just know they stayed up way too late watching funny Youtube videos. ;)

I ruff you...


Hello, hello!
 
It's day two of the Greeting Farm's July release and we are introducing another new Miss Anya set today... I just LOVE these bigger girls making a comeback! This set is called Miss Anya Samoyed and it includes two individual Miss Anyas and this sweet puppy lover with her Samoyed. I paired these two up with the Puppy Love paper and goodies from Doodlebug and pulled my Copic colors to match. The dog bed even came from the Doodlebug Odds and Ends die cut pack and I just used some blue Copics to add some dimension to it so it wouldn't look out of place and flat when compared with my colored characters.  Miss Anya Samoyed will be available for purchase on the 15th along with the other new stamp sets.

Now hop on over to the TGF blog to see all the gorgeous cards from my fellow Farmers using the new Miss Anya Samoyed set. Then I will see you tomorrow for day 3 of sneak peeks!  :)

An amazing day...

Hey there! 

I'm just sneaking in real quick with one last card for the Mama Elephant Top Card Contest before the deadline tomorrow. This card primarily centers around the super cute dolphins in the Marine Friends set but I also added element in from the Mermaid Kisses and Little Mermaid Agenda sets as well. I wanted to create a scene where a child is silhouetted against those cool underwater aquarium window looking out at all the magic and wonder that the oceans are teaming with. And guess who got her sea legs for this... one of the Mermaid Kisses mermaids, LOL! I only inked her from the waist up then when I was coloring her in as a silhouette I simply gave her some legs. Her seashell top became a hand on the glass window and I stamped the smaller sea turtle into her other hand so it looks like she is carrying her favorite plushy around with her. The sentiment was borrowed from the Picnic with Friends set and I think it does a great job bringing everything together. :)

Alrighty, now back to our regularly scheduled posting, LOL!
Supply list:
cardstock- Papertrey Ink and Catherine Pooler

Take a hike...



Hello friends!

Can you believe it is time to start previews for the July release at The Greeting Farm already? We have four fabulous new stamp sets to share with you and we are starting with a very timely set called, Take a Hike. Take a Hike features an adorable mini couple enjoying the great outdoors as they hike and canoe during their summer camping trip. It also includes a bunch of great sentiments and accessory images like that cute pup running along with them. The scene for these two was a no brainer as I colored in an idyllic hillside trail for them to be exploring together. :)
  
Now be sure to check out the TGF blog to see all of the fun cards from my fellow Farmers using the new Take a Hike set as well as an extra card from me. Then check back tomorrow for day 2 of previews. :)

One sip at a time...

Good morning!

It's my day to post at 7 Kids and considering it has been a while since I've inked up a Picket Fence beauty I figured this was the perfect excuse to get one colored up and on a card. I debated between Beautiful Girl Kendyll and Beautiful Girl Kiki because they both look like summertime sweeties. Ultimately what gave Kendyll the edge was the drink she is sipping on as it gave me a very definitive direction to take the rest of the card. But don't feel bad for Kiki, I'm sure she will get on a card of her own before summer is out. With all those pretty flowers in her hair I imagine Kendyll as a runaway bride's maid who has skipped out on the reception for some relaxing time at the beach. And when she came across the little ice cream shop she decided to treat herself to a delicious milk shake. I don't know if her glasses where meant to be sunglasses but I colored them in that way and I think they look quite stylish. I stamped Kendyll in desert sand because I really wanted to give her blonde hair and I just always love how soft and dreamy no-line coloring is... I think it suits her. :)

Stay crafty my friends!

Hooray...

Hi there!

I'm just sneaking this card in real quick because I wanted to get it entered into the Mama Elephant Top Card Contest before it ends on the 10th. It's a pretty clean and simple design but I thought the mash-up of the Little Fairy Agenda cuties with the Celebration Balloons was a fun one. All I had to do was draw in the strings and it looks like they are flying those balloons to a fairy special party. ;)

Hello again!

Sneak peek week at Stamping Bella is wrapping up today which means that we are only one sleep away from release day, woohoo!  If you haven't been checking out all the gorgeous preview cards from my fellow Bellas you really need to head over to the Bellariffic Blog and leave comments on each post for a chance to win a $25 gift to the store. But hurry because comments close today! In the meantime I've got two more Tiny Townie cards to share that will take you back to those carefree childhood days.

First up is a card featuring the new Tiny Townies Hair Play. These two besties are having a bit of a spa day as they take turns doing each other's hair. Right away I saw these two in a very girly girl type bedroom, reading teeny bopper magazines and chit chatting about all the latest goings on. I don't know if they have anywhere special to go once they get all dolled up or if they are just enjoying feeling good by looking good. :) 
And my final preview card features the Tiny Townie Hula Hoopers. Personally I can relate to the little gal in the middle because I could never quite master the art of hula hooping. But I think with the help of her friends she will persevere until that hoop is spinning circles around her waist. :)
Ok, time for me to scoot. Enjoy the rest of your weekend everybody!

No one youer than you...

TGIF everybody

I had a great day celebrating yesterday but it didn't leave me with any time to get crafty. So instead I am sharing one of the extra cards that I made for last month's TGF release featuring the new You sentiment set. If you haven't noticed yet, I'm a big proponent for having sentiments on cards. I just really love how the perfect words can help pull a scene together or give an image a deeper meaning. So seeing these new large sentiments coming out from The Greeting Farm, whether they are stamps or the cool new extra large dies, makes me all kinds of happy! For this card I paired the large sentiment with a tiny Minkie and practiced my ink blended backgrounds some more. All in all I think this turned out quite whimsical and sweet. 

Ok then, I'm outta here... gotta get ready for work. See ya next week!    
Supply list:
cardstock- Papertrey Ink and Catherine Pooler
stamps- The Greeting Farm (Minkie 1 and You)

Let's celebrate the 4th...

Happy 4th of July!

For many of us here in the States today is a day to celebrate with family and friends as we enjoy backyard barbecues, swimming, games, parades and of course fireworks displays. When I sat down to pick a stamp for my card celebrating this 4th of July holiday I was a bit stumped at first. I've done plenty of cards in the past featuring fireworks in some way and I wanted a change so when I flipped through the stamps still sitting on my desk and saw the Party Parade set from Hello Bluebird I had my inspiration. But I didn't stop with just that one set, instead I pulled out my Hello Bluebird binder and found more fun critters, from various sets, to really build up my 4th of July parade with not only those walking the route but the bystanders watching it as well. I had such a blast putting them all together in their patriotic red, white and blue pageantry.

Alrighty, have a blast today my friends but be safe while still having fun! :)

Hello...

Hello friends!

I'm sharing over on The Greeting Farm blog today and I couldn't wait to ink up one of the new beauties from the Cheeky Girly Girls kit that arrived in my mailbox recently. I've been a huge fan of the Cheekies ever since the original three, Glamour, Rockabilly and Shooter were released back in 2010. Compared to the other characters that call TGF home the Cheekies have always been a little bit naughty and super sassy! Now up until this newest clear kit all of the previous Cheekies have been in seated or kneeling positions but now the gals are standing up and ready to strut their stuff. This particular Cheeky looked to me like she was ready for a beach vacation full of surfing fun and twilight bonfires. I grabbed various scene building type stamps from my stash to help make that idea come to life. You may also notice her pink lips... if I had one pet peeve with these lovelies it was that their pretty rosebud lips always inked up black along with everything else. So this time around using a stamp platform I was able to wipe the black ink away from the lips before stamping then ink them up again using a pink ink and I LOVE the results! I really can't wait to get more of these Girly Girl Cheekies onto their own cards... who knows what what kind of fun each of them will be having.  

Stay crafty... and a little sassy!  ;)

Bellariffic sneak peek week!

Hello crafty friends!

Sneak peek week has begun for the HUGE release from Stamping Bella coming to the shop on Monday, July 8th. If you missed Day 1 of previews yesterday be sure to head over to the Bellariffic Blog to see all the gorgeousness that my fellow Bella Babes have created with the first four stamps that were shown. Today we've got four more Tiny Townie images that will transport you back to those carefree childhood days.
My first sneak peek card features the new Tiny Townie Tire Swing and as soon as I saw her I could just picture her swinging out over calm lake water. So I grabbed my Copics and set out to make that vision come to life. Living in the foothills of the North Cascades I drew a lot of inspiration from my own backyard, though I like think that she is enjoying time at summer camp. :)    
For my second card that I'm sharing today Tiny Townie Pirate is the star of the show. The story that came to mind with this imaginative cutie was that living on the coast watching the ships sail in and out of port had her dreaming of her own swashbuckling adventures. So with a little ingenuity and the company of her first mate, Mr. Whiskers, this Tiny Townie becomes the dread pirate Buttercup! Hmmmm... perhaps her or I have our stories all mixed up, LOL! ;)

I've got two more cards to share but I'm going to save them for posting here on Sunday, just before the release goes live. In the meantime, the other Bellariffic Babes will continue sharing previews for all the new stamps throughout this week. So make sure you keep checking out the Stamping Bella blog for daily posts, with the chance to win a prize for commenting on each one!

Laters!
