Marie, the owner of The Greeting Farm, challenged the DT to try out some envelope art. I've seen some amazing envelopes out in blogland so this was just the push I needed to give it a try. I used images from three different stamps sets to create my underwater scene: Make A Splash, Happy To Sea You, and Hands Down. I started by writing the address on my envelope so I would know where I could stamp the images. I stamped some of the images and then masked them in order to stamp the images in the background. I fussy cut masks for all of the images and sponged some Antique Linen and Gathered Twigs distress inks on the bottom of the envelope. Then I sponged Salty Ocean, Mermaid Lagoon, Peacock Feathers, and Blueprint Sketch to create the ocean. After my ink sponging was completed, I removed all the masks and colored the images with copics. Since my envelope wasn't really copic-friendly, I kept my shading to a minimum. While I'm glad I finally tried some envelope art, I will say it was very time-consuming (mostly because of all the masking) so it's probably not something I will do often lol.

Hello friends, I'm here today sharing another guest designer card for Whimsy Stamps.
This sweet stamp is Fairy Gifts For You. I adore this collection of fairies that Whimsy carries. Be sure to stop by their shop to check them out because they're all so adorable! I colored this sweetie with copics and then paired her with some colorful designer paper. Since this is a birthday card I wanted it to be bright and cheery! I added some Glamour Dust to her wings and embellished my card with a few enamel dots. I used my Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen to add some sparkle to all of the gifts. The sentiment is from the Polka Dot Fun stamp set. There are lots of sweet sentiments in this set, along with some fabulous polka dots of course!
Hello everyone! I just wanted to pop on here and share a really quick and easy card that I made using a few fairies and some pattern paper.
These sweet little fairies are from The Greeting Farm's Fairy Happystamp set. I found this fun pattern paper by Doodlebug Design at my LSS and decided to add a few of the little fairies to create a quick and easy card. I colored the fairies with copics and then diecut them using the coordinating dies. I used a stitched rectangle die to cut the pattern paper and adhered it to my white cardbase. Then I simply used foam tape to add the fairies to the flowers. I added some Glamour Dust to the fairy wings and also added a few sequins for some sparkle.
It’s the 15th, and that means the new MAY Stamps are NOW available for purchase in The Greeting Farm Store.
Our first set, BEACH BUMS, has all the elements to create a relaxing
pool or beach-side scene. Next, we introduced a cute jellyfish, adorable
octopus, and fabulous squid in the HANDS DOWN set. With summer right
around the corner, we couldn't forget about camping and s'mores in the
S'MORE FUN set. And finally, the HAPPY TO SEA YOU set showcased more sea
fun with an awesome shark and whale, along with additional sea
I used the awesome Beach Bums stamps and coordinating dies to make my card. I colored the images with copics and then diecut them. I created the base of my card by sponging distress inks onto Bristol card for the water and sand. I used Nuvo Crystal Glaze on the sunglasses to make them shine.

Hello! Today I'm sharing a card featuring a sweet Birdie Brown stamp set from My Favorite Things.
The sweet bunny and bubbles are from the BB Bubble Over With Joy stamp set. I colored them with copics and then fussy cut them. I used a black glaze pen on the bunny's eyes and nose and used a white gel pen to create polka dots on her dress. I applied Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen and Nuvo Crystal Glaze to the bubbles. The pretty pattern paper is from the Homespun Gingham Paper Pack. I diecut the sentiment using the Die-namics Stitched Sentiment Strips.
Hello and welcome to Day 4 of previews of The Greeting Farm May release! Today I'm sharing the Happy To Sea You stamp set!
This amazing stamp set has so many sea creatures and accessories ... I know you're going to love it! I colored everything with copics and then diecut them with the coordinating dies. I sponged distress inks onto Bristol card for the ocean and sandy bottom and then cut a channel to create a slider card. As you can see in the photo below, the whale "swims" across the front of the card.
Hello friends, I'm here today with another guest designer card for Whimsy Stamps.
These sweet images are from the Hugs Bunny stamp set. These stamps could be used for so many different occasions ... I think it would be perfect to make a Father's Day card, which is just around the corner. But I've used it to make a card that you could send to anyone just to let them know you're thinking of them. I stamped the bear and bunny on Neenah cardstock and colored them with copics. I used the Gingham Background stamp to create the pretty pattern on the bottom and then sponged some ink on the top of the card also. I used a black glaze pen on the bear's and bunny's noses and applied Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen on the hearts.
