The Greeting Farm Peace and Snuggle

Hiya Friends!! I decided to work on a few cards last night and I decided to use The Greeting Farm stamps. This card was created using "Peace". I've been trying to use different color combos. I don't use blue and purple often so I decided to try it out!

Isn't Peace a cutie or what? I love this stamp! I had fun coming up with a layout for this card! It's a little different from my other layouts because I decided to put the sentiment at center rather than off to the side.







I colored this sweetie with my Copic Markers. . .cut parts of the image and remounted them with foam tape.

Card Details:

Stamps: The Greeting Farm Peace, Hope & Grace
Paper: Deja View and K&CO designer paper, SU Lavender Lace (I think), Lovely Lilac, Blue Bayou
Ink: Copic Markers, Scribbles Iridescent Paint
Accessories: Basic Basic Ribbon, SU Large Oval Punch, Marvy flower punch, organdy ribbon, Nestabilities




Here's another card I made. . .this time using The Greeting Farm "Snuggle". Don't you feel like giving Snuggles a snuggle. LOL!

Again, I decided to use a different color combo. I actually used an old SU card stock color. . .it's called Marvelous Magenta. It's a retired color and I still had it. LOL!

The embossed background was created using Fiskar Texture template. Remember those old texture plates that you had to use that embossing tool and scratch the card stock to create the embossing? Well, fast forward to present time. . .all I did was run the plate through my die cut machine. I love innovation! LOL!



Again, I colored my image using my Copic Markers. Hey. . .I have another "big find". . .I'll tell you about it another time. You're going to flip out when I tell you about it!!

Anyway, I hope you all have a fantastic day. I gotta get off of here. . .I am so behind on life, it's crazy. It's not because I have a lot to do. . .it's just I get interrupted every 5 minutes so I can't get anything done.

Card Details:

Stamps: The Greeting Farm Snuggles
Paper: K&Co designer paper, SU Marvelous Magenta, More Mustard
Ink: Copic Markers, Sakura Gel Pen, Scribbles Iridescent Paint
Accessories: Plaid ribbon, Marvy flower punch, SU Large Oval Punch, Fiskar Texture plate, SU Scallop Edge Punch, Nestabilities

Heather said...

Hey Maria,

Both of these cards turned out really well!!! I love that purple it reminds me a lot of the new SU in colors coming out there is a purple pretty close to the old SU Magenta one.

I do not have any of those new Hope and Grace stamps yet, Yes I know the horrors how could I not have a new TGF relase I actually did not get any of the last two releases not because I do not like them just because I have spent to many of my Dollars at TGF the last several months!!! I own almost everything so it is time to slow down!!!

Plus I have so many SU expenses coming up with the New Catalogs and Catalog Sneak Peaks, and the Catalog Level 1 and Level 2 hostess sets ect... ect....

Great cards they are both so so so pretty and so creative girl!!!

Both of these cards are absolutely gorgeous! I think everything you make needs framed!

Christine said...

Wow, your cards are stunning. I have also shied away from purples lately so thanks for the inspiration. I love the popped up flowers in her hair. So sweet. You are so good with the dimensional look. Great idea for those texture plates. I would have never thought to use mine like that. Actually I think that they are sitting in my "get rid of somehow bucket." Hehe. Well I am pulling them out immediately. I just love your work. Every card is just so adorable.
xoxo, Christine

Both cards are super cute and the vibrant colors are fantastic! The blue and purple is my favorite! A lot of ppl. aren't fans of purple, but I'm a big fan of the color and would like to see more of it. I also like the tiny flowers with the gems....too too cute!!!
