Hello and good morning!! It's time for another release from  The Greeting Farm and today we are kicking off the release previews with Birthday Anya 3

The first project I made was cupcake purse. I got the template for this over on Cre8ive Cutz for a mere 99c and it's so simple to make. 

Inside I added 4 mini chocolate chip muffins.

Quixotic Paperie - Fairy Queen

Hi!!! Today I have a Quixotic Paperie DT card to share, featuring the beautiful Fairy Queen from Carmen Medlin for SCACD.

First, I just want to let you all know that here is a 10% OFF STOREWIDE SALE UNTIL MIDNIGHT SUNDAY 28TH JULY! Orders will dispatch on Monday 29th July.

I've stamped her out onto Make it Colour blending card and coloured her up with Copic markers. I've also added a little sparkle to her wings with Star Dust Stickles. 

The papers I used are actually Christmas themed Kaisercraft papers. I've kept the card really clean and simple and only added a small flossed button to embellish. 

Hope it inspires!!

Stamping Bella Madison - 5 o'clock Somewhere!!

Hi guys!! Today I have a card to share which features Madison has a Margarita, one of the Uptown Girls, from Stamping Bella. 

She's been stamped out onto Make it Colour Blending card with Memento black ink and partially coloured up with copic markers. I paper pieced her dress from the same paper collection as I used on to make my card. 

I just LOVE the sentiment that comes with this stamp, it's perfect!! .. and can totally relate to it, ha!! 

My papers are from Pink Paislee's 'Pink Crush' collection and I've used pink and white cardstock for matting and layering. I also added a white doily in between my layers of paper. To embellish I've added loads of flowers, pearls & twine. 

The white, resin look, flowers (and the bow) I've used have been handmade by moi !! I got some amazing new moulds from WOW! Embossing Powder and last night while I was watching Revolution on my laptop I spotted a pack of modelling clay on my shelf.. so I sat and made flowers and bows. So easy, so much fun and I am SO gonna make more later today. 

You can find Madison and the rest of the Uptown Girls right HERE in the Quixotic Paperie Store. And, as it's 5 o'clock right now, grab yourself a margarita while you shop  :D :D :D 


WOW! Emobssing - A Little Note...

Hi everyone!! Today I am sharing some WOW! Embossing Summer Inspiration for you. This month the WOW! design team are creating Summer inspired projects and my take on it was to use HOT colours, 

Taking some white card I heat embossed French Music with Clear Gloss embossing powder. I used Dylusions sprays and Glimmer Mist to create the background. Being the impatient type that I am I used my heat gun to dry the sprays and then lightly rubbed a damp baby wipe across the music notes to remove the colour. 

I used the Butterfly and sentiment from the With Love clear stamp set - I heat embossed the butterfly with Primary Bark and coloured the wings with distress inks. The sentiment has also been stamped out with distress ink and cut out with Nestabilities. 

You still have a little over a week to enter our Wow challenge of Summer to be in with a chance of winning 6 embossing powders of your choice!

Have a great day!

Hi everyone!! We have a new challenge today at A Creative Romance . The very lovely Delphine challenged us to use 'No Patterned/Designer Papers'.. eek!!!! 

While I was sitting colouring my Magnolia image I received a text message asking me to make a wedding card - I could not have timed it better, lol. Soooo pulling on my big girl panties I grabbed white card, embossing folders, dies and punches and got to work. :D 

I stamped my image onto Make it Crafty Blending card and coloured with copic markers. The dies I've used are a mix of Spellbinders and La-La Land Crafts Rolled Roses Small, Medium & Large and the leave are made from the Large Flourish die. I also added a punched butterfly and embellished with white sparkly pearls.
