TGF - Day 3 Preview

Tuesday, December 31, 2013
Welcome back to DAY 3 of the TGF JANUARY PREVIEWS!!! 

Today we preview a super cutie stamp - Sweet Bean!! She is so adorable with her flowing hair - and perfect for the upcoming Valentine's Day, she can shower hearts of love on someone special.

Here is my card. She is coloured with Copics and I could not go past the fabulous bright blue for her hair - I love this colour combination. I also used the no line colouring technique. For any of you out there wanting to have a go at this technique it is a little more time consuming but very rewarding. Remember that some of the detail needs to be put in with pencils - I use Prismacolour.

TGF - Day 2 Preview!

Monday, December 30, 2013
Hi Everyone!!  welcome to DAY 2 of the JANUARY PREVIEWS at The Greeting Farm. The new stamp we are featuring today is Frou Frou Believe.

I coloured her with Copic Makers and teamed her up with some patterned paper by My Mind's Eye - Stella Rose 6 x 6 pad. I have had this pad for ages and finally pulled it out and loved the orange and aqua for inspiration.

TGF - Day 1 Preview

Friday, December 27, 2013
Hi everyone! Welcome to DAY 1 of the JANUARY PREVIEWS over at The Greeting Farm. The first release features a new FABULOUS Anya set: Miss Anya - Night Out.

So if you haven't figured out the exciting news ... I am now part of The Greeting Farm design team!!!  EEEEKKKK!!  I am so honoured and excited to be part of such a fantastic and inspirational team. I have always loved the TGF images - fantastic to colour with Copic markers, fun and cute images, so to be part of the team is so fantastic.

I got super excited and created two cards for the Day 1 preview.

This is the first card I made. I wanted to keep the design simple and clean so Miss Anya could really shine!! 

 A close up of the coloured image:

My second card used another Miss Anya from the new set (there are 3 all together). I loved the shorter hair on this one - and reached for one of my favourite colours - purple!!

No Peeking!

I have long admired the stamps at The Cat's Pajamas. I love the oh so cute penguins - so when they had their Black Friday sale I finally splurged and bought some. They are also having a sale on now with 25% off so head over and check out the cute images and grab a bargain.

Yes I know Christmas has been and gone but there are still a few Christmas cards to share now that the rush and business of Christmas is over.

Here is the card that I made for my mum and dad - love the image ("Give a Little" set) !! I coloured with Copics and then pulled out some new washi tape from Stampin' Up - instant card!!

Thanks for looking...

Quilled Daffodil

Sunday, December 15, 2013
I used to do a lot of quilling when I was in high school. With so many fantastic images on the internet it is very easy to get inspired, and I think I might have caught the quilling bug again!! Here is a card I put together to teach at Create on Ormond.

Merry Always

I am really getting inspired again to make cards and to participate in a few challenges - I always look at challenges and then forget about them as I am usually too busy - or too tired! But now I feel like I have my mojo back - so it was time to participate in The Greeting Farm's Farm Fresh Friday.

This week's challenge is "All That Sparkles". Use rhinestones, glitter, glittered papers, metallic papers, or.......well, you get the idea, anything nice and sparkly.

I also took the opportunity to bust out the no line colouring technique again. The stamped images look so different with this technique. I teamed Holiday Anya 2 up with some lovely Christmas Paper by Authentique - Festive. 

Thanks for looking....

Cyber-Monday Celebration Hop with the Greeting Farm

Tuesday, December 3, 2013

I have been loving my Greeting Farm stamps lately, as you would see if you scrolled down a little at my last few posts. I love their images and they are great to practice your copic colouring - nice big areas of space to play around with shading.

I have been admiring so many people's work on the net - especially the examples of no line colouring so I have delved in and started practising and let me tell you I love it. 

Here is the card I have made for the Hop using the Greeting Farm Later Sk8ter stamp. I used the no-line colouring method. It takes a little longer and you really need to go over an over the image to get it just how you like it but I think the effect is fantastic.

And here is a close up of the image.

The Greeting Farm Cyber Hop!
