You say witch...

Hello there!

Who's ready for Halloween cards? Me, me, me! Yes, lately I've been feeling that itch to start transitioning into the next season of card making as we head into the final weeks of summer. Even though we haven't had a break in the hot weather yet I am ready for things to get a bit more cool and cozy. So when I saw all the fab new Halloween stamps in the latest Picket Fence release I quickly added them to my 7 Kids cart. The sketchy looking witches in the If You've Got It, Haunt It set were the first to catch my eye and then I fell in love with the On an Autumn Day background. The nice thing about it is it's versatility because I can totally see using it for all the seasons just by changing the sky colors and using my Copics to add more leaves. The sentiment even comes with the small Witch, Please set... so much Picket Fence goodness on one card, LOL! You might notice that I couldn't resist giving my sassy witch a head full of big, bouncing curls a la Cher in The Witches of Eastwick, and I think she looks fabulous with her new 'do.  ;) 

Don't be surprised if more fall and Halloween cards start showing up here on the 'ol blog cause there's no going back now, LOL!

So doggone kind...

Hello, hello! 

For my card today I felt like playing with another one of the newest Dreamerland stamps that were released this summer. This little beauty with her basket of pups is called Because I Love You and I paired them with the older Box of Flowers stamp and the running pup that come with one of their red rubber stamps which, for the life of me, I can't remember what it's called. Once they were all stamped on there together I could just picture her sitting right outside her house by the front stoop. I didn't have a ruler handy to I was really winging it with the house as I sketched with my Copics and the perspective got totally wonky on the front there but what can ya do, LOL! At least you get the impression of what I was going for, plus it isn't like the house is the focal point any way. Then I just finished the whole thing off with a fun sentiment from the Honey Bee Friends Furever set which I thought tied back quite nicely to her helping so sweetly with those puppies. :)

Ok then, so much to do today... I should get moving. Have a good one!

Birthday wishes...

Good morning! 

We opened the Sweet November Vault at 7 Kids this weekend and we brought back the Surprise Party Fairwees in honor of Kelly's third anniversary of owning the store. On Saturday I did two Live coloring videos in the 7 Kids Customers Create Facebook group and this card using Daphne's Balloons is the result of one of those videos. We ended up coloring her floating high above the clouds which left me a lot of blue space up top to play with. So I grabbed the new Birthday Wishes die from The Greeting Farm and created a large but subtle silhouette style greeting in that space. It's so cool that by simply die cutting the sentiment five times and gluing them all together you get this raised lettering that almost disappears into the scene. It's like a little bit of card making magic, which seems appropriate with these sweet Fairwees.  ;)

Ok, time for me to scoot. Hope you have a lovely week!
Supply list:
cardstock- Catherine Pooler and Copic X-Press It

You're invited to a wee little party!

Hello friends!

It's time for the August SN Vault release and because we are also celebrating Kelly's three year anniversary of owning 7 Kids we decided to go big... in a small way. To help us celebrate this milestone we have brought back all six of the Surprise Party Fairwees who were originally released in January of 2012. These smallest of the small inhabitants of Sweet November Land are the best party planners around and they have gone all out for this celebration! :)Fairwee Josie is putting the finishing touches of sparkling sugar and candy coated decorations on the yummiest looking platter of mini cupcakes that we have ever seen. While Mia is a wee little ball of energy zooming in and showering everyone with a burst of sparkling fairy dust and colorful confetti! Little Jilly is in charge of making sure the cake has just the right amount of glowing candles for each and every celebration.


Our tiny friend Emaline is toting a pile of pretty presents to the party, so proud of her wrapping and ribbon curling on each one. There is Fairwee Daphne swooping in, holding tight to a bunch of birthday balloons. She's so small that even the gentlest breeze could blow her right out of the party again! And what could be inside that gift with the pretty wrapping paper and big bow? "Surprise" it's Fairwee Piper popping out to wish you a very happy birthday, half-birthday or non-birthday! Let's just enjoy the sweet treats and play a party game or two because the fun is just beginning. :)

Because we are celebrating the store anniversary for the rest of the month this Vault will stay open until September 1st. But for today and tomorrow only we have a special bundle deal going that you won't want to miss!

Drop you a line...

TGIF my friends! 

What with the TGF previews and getting ready for a couple of upcoming releases, I didn't have a lot of time to make a card for today. Luckily I've got a stack of Some Odd Girl images already colored from past coloring challenges that I've participated in. So all I had to do was grab this little mermaid resting on a fishing hook and color in a quick background of water for her to live in. The image is called Caught Mermaid but I like to think that she is just toying with whoever is on the other end of that line and she will slip away just before the hook is pulled from the water. ;)
Alrighty, time for work. But I will be back tomorrow with a special Vault release at 7 Kids so be sure to check that out! 
Laters!

Lastly, we introduced 3 big Anyas in a set called MISS ANYA COFFEE BREAK that is perfect for coffee/hot chocolate lovers and fantastic for all those fall cards.

I love, love, LOVE her and hope we see even more characters sportin' cute pixies in the future... who's with me? Something about her had me imagining this girl as a stylish, young assistant working in some office coming back with the morning coffee for her and her boss.

Happy looks good on you...

 
Hi friends!

It's day three of the Greeting Farm's August release and we are introducing the To Do set which includes this sketch style little gal as she goes about her day taking care of all the household chores that fill our days. These quirky little stamps are perfect for planners and journals as well as fun cards like this one. For my card today I paired the To Do girls with girls from the Happy Travels set that was released in April. I thought it would be cute to have her daydreaming about getting away from her work-a-day world for a bit of r&r on a tropical vacation with the sun, sea and sand and a drink in her hand. To Do will be available for purchase on the 15th along with the other new stamps.

Now hop on over to the TGF blog to see all of the great chore themed projects from my fellow Farmers using the new To Do set. Then check back tomorrow for day four of previews. :)

A really small gang...

Good morning! 

When 7 Kids got in the new More Jungle Littles set from Hello Bluebird I had to add them to my cart immediately. All of the little critters in the set are super cute but it was the adorable meerkat that really sealed the deal. There is just something about meerkats, watching them hang out with each other, popping in and out of their burrows, that I just find totally endearing. So even though there is only one meerkat in the set I wanted to try my hand at creating a small gathering of them on my card through some selective inking.The two up front I only inked up the heads so that I could color the dirt in around them and create the appearance of them peeking out of the ground. Then I just masked them and added a few more behind them, wiping away the tail on two of them before stamping and then drawing in a new tail off to the opposite side on one to help change things up a bit more. Once I had them stamped it was time to create the background so I googled meerkat sunset photos and found this really cool one with a yellow sky that looked awesome but also scared me a bit to try. But since these are the challenges that make us better colorists, I took a deep breath and dove right into it. I am really pleased with the end result even though the dark cloud bank doesn't look near as fluffy as it does in the photo. And while in reality my meerkat gang being backlit like that would have been cast in silhouette I decided to take some artistic license with the scene and color them in like they are front lit. Who knows, maybe there is a wild life photographer using her flash there to capture them in front of that Sahara sunset. ;)

Have a great week everybody!

It's someone's birthday...

Happy Saturday my friends!

I've got another Scenic Saturday post over on the Bellarific Blog today and this time around I thought it would be cool to show how fun and effective creating a monochromatic grey scale background can be. I started off by stamping and coloring the beautiful new Curvy Girl Baker on Copic X-Press It card stock. I knew that I wanted to create a kitchen for her to live in but I still wanted to keep most of the focus on her, so I grabbed a ruler and a handful of my lighter W Copics, W00 up to W3. Using the W3 and the ruler I proceeded to sketch in the cupboards and stove, then I used my lighter greys to add in simple shading to give the different kitchen elements just a touch of dimension. Now you've got a fun environment for her to call home but there is no denying that this Curvy Girl is the star of the show! Just like my last Scenic Saturday card, this is another great coloring technique to baby step your way into creating backgrounds using your markers and I hope you will give it a try. :)

Stay crafty!

Birthday Wishes...

Hello again!

It's day 2 of the August previews at The Greeting Farm and today we are introducing two more of the large sentiment dies! This time we've got Birthday Wishes and Happy Birthday dies in Marie's fabulous script writing for all of us to enjoy creating with. I've got card samples up on the TGF blog using both of the dies but I chose to share my Birthday Wishes card here today. I thought it would be fun to create a magical unicorn birthday party using some of the cuties from the Be a Unicorn set. I tend to give my unicorns shimmery gold horns and hooves so I used the big Birthday Wishes die to cut the oversized sentiment out of shiny gold adhesive backed paper to coordinate with them. It's hard to capture how cool the gold looks in a photo but in person it is very pretty. :)

Now be sure to head on over to the TGF blog to see what my fellow Farmers have created using the fun new dies. Then check back here Tuesday for day three of previews. :)

A brighter place...


Hey there!

It's time to kick off previews for the August release at The Greeting Farm! Today we are introducing a new Mini Remix Friends set. These more medium sized Anyas are my favorite of the smaller Anya stamps and I think it is fun to see the different head swaps that Marie creates with these remix sets. This time around they had me going back to my roots and reaching for some of the great pattern papers in my stash. This little gal in particular looked like she could be a teacher which made her perfect for pairing with some of the new Doodlebug School Days goodies that I just got. As that back to school time nears I figured this card would work great to show appreciation to a hard working teacher, maybe even with a gift card tucked inside. :)

Be sure to check out the TGF blog to see all of the fun cards from my fellow Farmers using the new Mini Remix Friends set as well as a couple extra card from me. Then check back tomorrow for day 2 of previews.

Waving Hello...

Hello, hello!

I'm back with another super cute MerBean to share with you today. This sweet little minnow of a mer is the digital stamp that came with the second TGF Mystery Box. Haven't heard about the Mystery Boxes yet? Well, every couple of months Marie puts together a collection of brand new, never before released stamp sets as well as some stickers and a digi, all for a price that is a lot lower than if you bought them individually. The mystery part comes into play because you don't know what they will be until you open your box. Now if you aren't a fan of surprises no worries, they will eventually be released individually, but at a much later date. Don't want to miss out on the next fun mystery? Then be sure to follow The Greeting Farm on all their social media platforms. 
As for my card, I paired this wee MerBean with some of the background elements included in the Make a Splash clear stamp set. I like how it looks like she's swam out of her seashell castle to say hello.

Alrighty, that's all I've got for today. Be sure to check back tomorrow as we kick off August previews... woohoo!

You're Fintastic...

Hello there! 

I'm up on The Greeting Farm blog today with a Tip Me Tuesday post and mine is all about a pretty pink coral color combo that I used on this fun Merbean's hair. She is part of the big rubber Sparkle kit that was released last year, though I did do a bit of altering by wiping away the horn from her forehead before stamping. With a hair-do as fabulous as hers, I knew that it would have to be a very special color, so I came up with this combo that isn't quite pink yet isn't quite orange either... pink coral! Since it is such a soft shade I colored the background in with a lot of mint greens to really help her hair stand out on my card. After that all I had to do was add a few Doodlebug Sprinkles, like that cute jellyfish, and my card was done.  :)

Have a good one my friends!

Just dandy...

Good morning!

This darling dandelion fairy is from the newest Dreamerland release and I had to have her as soon as I saw her because you know I'm all about my fairy stamps. She's called Fairy 2 and she is just as cute as can be. As I was planning out a scene for her to live in I had an ah-ha moment and pulled the Mix and Match Flowers and Windmills stamp set out and was able to quickly add in a field of dandelions gone to seed below her. Then I just used my Copic markers to add in the rest of the scene as it trailed back into the distance, pretty seamlessly. I think the end result is a bright and cheery card full of sunshine and smiles!  :)

Later gators!

Day 2 of Sweet November's August release...

TGIF my friends

We had a wonderful time yesterday celebrating the August Summer Garden release from Sweet November Stamps over in the  7 Kids Customers Create Facebook group. These two lovely cards are the results of the two Live coloring videos that I did, the first one features a close up of Rose and the second one is a close up of Peony. Don't forget that today is the last day of the release celebration so if you haven't grabbed the freebies yet you will want to get on that because come tomorrow morning the only way to get Bud and Beezer will be to purchase them in the shop. This is also the last day to take advantage of the special bundle deal in the store and my final two coloring videos for this release are today as well. So there is still a lot going on and I hope we see you there! :)

It's a magical summer garden release!

Good morning! 

Welcome to the August digi release for Sweet November Stamps at 7 Kids! After we have spent most of the summer down by the sea shore it's time for us to turn back inland to the lush summer gardens of Sweet November Land. There among the beautiful riot of rich colors, breathing in the sweet scented breezes as they whisper through the petals we will meet the Flower Fae who are the guardians of this particular garden.


First along the garden path is Rose. Everyone knows that Rose is the queen of the summer garden, her beautiful blooms standing tall and proud above all the other flowers. She is as sweet as the fragrance of her flowers and even more lovely than an entire bouquet.   
Next along the garden path the happy Gerbera Daisy Fae welcomes all with a cheery disposition that matches the flowers she so loves. There is a happiness in this corner of the garden that is completely irresistible. One can't help but smile as you watch the daisies sway and dance atop their long stems and Gerbera Daisy dancing right along with them.    
As we make our way further into the garden we meet the elegant and dignified Dahlia Fae. Her blossoms come in all kinds of shapes and colors, each one just as pretty as the last. To be gifted with a bouquet of her special blooms is a rare treat! 
Finally we come to the beds of peonies at the end of the garden and resting among her blossoms is Peony Fae herself. This dreamy little Fae is a bit of a romantic and much like the frills and ruffles of the petals on her flowers she loves all things girly and pretty. 
As for this month's release day freebie, once again we couldn't resist and have two up for grabs today and tomorrow. Please say hello to Bud and Beezer. These two garden helpers spend their days assisting the lovely Flower Fae with everything from pollinating the flowers to singing the blossoms to sleep so they close up nice and tight as the sun sets each evening.  
We also went a bit overboard with the garden background builder elements so we have three different sets to choose from this time around. And for the next two days you can take advantage of the special bundle deal in the store.  :) 


And as always, this month's exclusive Fairy Tot digital stamp is only available to participants of the July Sweet November posting challenge. We know that sometimes it can be intimidating to put ourselves out there and share our creativity so these monthly Fairy Tots are our way of thanking everyone who plays along and shares the Sweet November love. If you missed out this month, no worries, just grab one of this month's images and join the fun in August to get your hands on next month's fairy. 
And don't miss out on all the fun and games and Live coloring videos I will be doing in the  7 Kids Customers Create Facebook group over the next two days as well, we would love to have you join us!
