Sat showcase for TGF Friday!

So, I'm back and even tho it's Sat - I'm still showcasing for The Greeting Farm Friday!!! I have been seriously loving these Tri-Shutter Cards I'm seeing everywhere and thought I'm finally going to try this technique. So that's what I did tonight. I'm very pleased with the outcome tho it's a bit time consuming for me, personally. It's cutting out all the little decorating pieces that did me in for this card. LOL Thankfully I knew I was going to use the fabulous Spooktacular set and the mini Ians/Anyas make for quick coloring. Phew! I still have some pieces to add for the inside but wanted to share the main front first. I made this birthday card for my SIL whose birthday is in Oct.

I hope you like:

TESC78 - A Challenge!

Yesterday I got together with some fabulous stamping friends and took some challenges to kickstart my mojo. This one follows Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge 78. I turned it on it's side but I think you can still see the sketch.
My brother's birthday just passed and we haven't seen him yet so I figured I could sneak in a late bday card. LOL I've been dying to ink up this Cakey Watt from Stamping Bella so I finally mounted him and off I went. The DP is from The Greeting Farm & I found the sentiment on the bottom from my friend Teresa's stash and the other embellishment is from my own stash.

I've actually made a few cards over the weekend which I'll be posting throughout the week, especially stay tuned for Digital Tuesday Challenge and The Greeting Farm Friday! ;)

I hope you likey!

Greeting Farm Friday!!!

It's Greeting Farm Friday and I have a new card to share with you! My camera batteries died and I don't have any charged so I had to scan it for you today.
I used the new Birthday Anya - when I saw her I could WAIT to ink & color her up. I just adore her. I also used papers from the new happy anyaversary paper pack and I cut out one of the Happy Birthday ovals for her to hold as the way I cut it out and the layout you couldn't see any of the birthday on the paper. Also, this follows Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #76 from a couple weeks ago.

The Greeting Farm Friday!

It's Friday and that means I have a Greeting Farm card to share with you today!!!

This week I used TGF's Fly Away set. Now, I'm normally not an animal stamping kinda girl as any one that knows me would tell you, but when I saw this one I knew it would be perfect to make a card and send to my BFF b/c she has always collected piggies. She's going thru some tough times so I just wanted to send her an encourging card.

Also stepping out of my norm, this card is CAS, ie. Clean And Simple. It actually has no layers. I stamped the image directly on the card stock, then masked the main image & stamped the clouds. Both are colored with Copics. Then I added a border with my scor-pal & used glossy accents to add some dimension to the balloons. All in all I'm pretty please with the effect:

I hope you likey and be sure to stop by the other fabulous blogs today for more inspiration:
