A Sweet and Sparkly Christmas Card

Hi, everybody! Now that I have a bit of a break from school, I can do a bit of crafting for fun! I made this card to send to one of my nieces:

I used some papers from Bo Bunny’s “Candy Cane Lane” collection from a few years ago, and The Greeting Farm’s Holiday Anya 3. I combined stamps from Lawn Fawn’s Cheery Christmas and Toboggan Together sets to create the sentiment.

I’m entering my card into two challenges:

The Greeting Farm’s December Farm Fresh Challenge: Sparkle!

Freshly Made Sketches #267, because my card uses their sketch:

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I’ll be back tomorrow with a new card for Lawnscaping Challenges! Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend!

TGF FFF: Color Combo Challenge!

Hi, Friends of the Farm! For my friends in the United States, I hope you had a safe and happy Thanksgiving holiday! We’re kicking off a new Farm Fresh Friday challenge today at The Greeting Farm, and Farmer Joni is challenging us to create with a color combo: silver, baby blue and white!
I chose “Holiday Anya” for my card today and added the hand warmer from “Holiday Anya 3” to my main image.
I puffed up some Liquid Applique on the fur trim of her dress and hand warmer with a heat tool. It’s also what I used to create the mistletoe berries in her hair. 
To work in the silver, I heat-set some silver ink with clear embossing powder on a strip of cardstock. 
So there you have it! For all the details on this challenge, and to link up your entry, visit The Greeting Farm’s blog!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Farm Fresh Friday at TGF: Anything But a Card!

Happy Friday, everybody! Hope you’ve had a great week and are ready for a new challenge at The Greeting Farm! Today, we’re challenging you to make “Anything But a Card”! (And that was a challenge for me!)

After much brainstorming, I decided to alter this mini notepad, and I love the end result! I’m thinking of doing a tutorial on this one, because it’s a great little holiday gift or stocking stuffer that I’m sure anyone could make! And, of course, “Holiday Anya 3” is on the cover!


The sentiment I used on the notepad cover is from TGF’s “I Heart Sweaters” set. I masked the word “heart” and used the rest of the sentiment, substituting a small punched heart shape for the missing word.

Here’s the scoop on playing along with this and all of our Farm Fresh Friday challenges:
  • You must use a TGF stamp (rubber, digi, or clear) as your main image.
  • Entries must be uploaded via InLinkz no later than Thursday, October 24th at NOON CST
  • You can add a direct link to your entry from your personal blog, SCS gallery, Flickr or TGF galleria. (If the InLinkz tool is missing, feel free to link your submission URL in the comment section!)
  • The fabulous prize: A random participant will be selected to win their choice of an in-stock SINGLE RUBBER STAMP or a 4×6 set!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a fabulously creative weekend!


Hugs,

Getting a head start on the holidays with this week’s GVT!

Hi, everybody! Hope your week is going well so far! I’ve been seeing lots of reminders lately that Christmas isn’t that far away, but somehow, it doesn’t seem like it’s that time of the year yet! I did make an ornament wreath, though…and I can’t wait to display it after Thanksgiving!
This week, Farmer Sandie is challenging us to get a head start on the holidays by making a Christmas card! So, I chose to color up newly released “Holiday Anya 3” for today’s card:
