The Greeting Farm Flutter Anya and McSplendid Farm

Hi Friends! Yup, I made a whole load of the Greeting Farm cards! Wow, I was on the roll the past few days! I'll post more tomorrow. I gotta space them out.

Actually, when I was watch a movie or TV with my family, I have a tendency to fall asleep in the middle of the movies so to keep myself awake, I'll color images. Well, right now, I have stock pile of them. I kid you not!!

Putting the cards together is really quick because my images are already colored. You should try it!

Okay, enough chit-chat and let me get down to business.

This image on this card is Flutter Anya. As always, I colored my image with my Copic Markers

I love cutting out Anya's hair and remounting it with foam tape. It makes her hair look more realistic.

The flowers are chipboards by K&CO.

Card Details:

Stamps: The Greeting Farm Flutter Anya
Paper: MME, SU More Mustard, Certainly Celery, So Saffron
Ink: Copic Markers, Sakura Gel Pen
Accessories: SU Ticket Corner Punch, CB Embossing Folder, Organdy Ribbon, Blue Moon Charm, K&CO Chipboard, Martha Steward Border Punch

This card was created using the McSplendid Farm stamp set. Okay, aren't these animal cute or what? I initially was going to put a bunch of chickies but decided to add the horse instead.

This is a simple card. Sometimes I gravitate towards simple designs and sometimes, I like very busy cards. I want to do both so this card is sort of on the minimal side.

I like diversity in my cards. . .I don't want my cards to look the same all the time. I'll start working on flower images towards the end of the week because I've been creating a lot of "cute" cards lately. I need to change things up a bit. Besides, it's spring so we need a bit of flowers in our life. Don't you agree?

Again, I colored my image with my Copic Markers and cut parts of the image and remounted them with foam stamp. Nothing new.

Anyway, I'll be posting more The Greeing Farm cards tomorrow. It's almost the end of the month and I need to meet my DT obligations! LOL!!

Be sure to stop by The Greeting Farm on the 1st of May. . .there's going to be a bunch of new stamps released in May. Just to let you know. . .they are SUPAH, DUPAH CUTE! I'm not kidding!!

See ya' all tomorrow!!

I just love all the dimension you put into your cards. The white dots on the cheeks is a great idea too.
The second card is my favorite!

G'morning my dear Maria! Hmmm, this girl is at it again with so many wonderful cards! Okay, I know, your virtue is patience LOL! Every card is layered in some way and very dimensional which I love. How you do it, I just don't know! Very adorable, each and every one! Keep them coming. Hugs, Cami

Christine said...

Wow, Maria, you are such a creative genius. You always do something new. I get a new idea to try on my cards every time you post something. Just curious, how long does it take you to make a card? You've just given me the itch to use my Copics! :)
xoxo, Christine

More adorable cards Maria! Love them!

To answer your photography question, not much going on with me in that dept. I HAVE to pass this test and after that I have promised myself to take LOTS O PICS!

We need to start challenging each other again... that worked pretty well last time! Good motivation! We could have themed shoots, and get Jen involved too!

I listened to that song from yesterday's post too... I really liked it! And I am definitely taken back to a different time in my life when I hear certain songs... Journey and Foreigner in particular! My mom took my Journey albums (how am I dating myself there) back when I was a teenager because I played Open Arms a zillion times. Boy issues, imagine! :-)
