Today, I'm featuring Foxy Fall!  This fun set if perfect for any occasion!  



To create my card, I layered up some patterned paper in the background.  Then I stamped out my images, colored them up with Copics, and die cut the scene into a rectangle.  I layered that on top of a teal scallop and added it to the center of my card.  I tucked in some of the coordinating die cuts that matched the paper, added a page flag to the right and finished it off with some enamel dots.  So much fun! 


Thanks so much for stopping by!  Be sure to leave a comment as you hop along!

Holiday Anya

Hello, today, I'm sharing another holiday card.  Christmas will be here before we know it!  Haha.  This is Holiday Anya #6.  One of my absolute favorites!  

To create my card, I layered up some patterned paper in the background.  Then I die cut a small circle and adhered that to a white doily from my stash.  I added them both to the top center of my card with a bit of adhesive.  Then I stamped out my image, colored her up with Copics, fussy cut her out and adhered her to the center of the circle with foam tape.  

Just below my image, I added a die cut falala sentiment and tucked a pieces of ephemera behind it.  Using some diamond dots, I added a bit of texture to those by covering the red berries that were printed on the ephemera.  I also added a sweet little holly sticker to her hair.  

Thank you so much for stopping by!  Happy crafting!

For my sentiment, I decided to stamp it across the moon.  I die cut some yellow paper into a large circle.  Then stamped my image towards the to.  I slipped that behind the house.  A few cloud die cuts and a glittered bat finish this card off.

The Greeting Farm: Christmas in July

I'm celebrating Christmas in July with this fun little holiday card featuring the Fa la la set!  Does anyone else create Christmas cards year round so you'll be ahead of the game?  
To create my card, I started by stamping out my sentiment. Then, I stamped out several snowmen just under it, masking them off.  After coloring them in with Copics, I used my Copic pen to draw in some snow.  A bit of Stickles glitter gives it some texture.  I also added some white snow across the whole panel using Copic white paint.  Using a die in my stash, I die cut the whole thing to fit the front of my card base.  Such a fun and festive holiday card!
