Happy Father's Day and The Greeting Farm Cards

Happy Father Day, Friends!! Last night was a good crafting night. I actually created two cards in one day. Yay! I'm typically a one card a day girl but from time to time, I'll make more and save the extra cards for rainy days! I decided to just post the two cards I made rather than saving the card for another day.

Hey my diet starts today. It's not a "REAL" diet. . .my plan is to eat smaller portions. We're heading out to a restaurant for Father's Day and my goal is to eat only half my plate and save the rest for left overs for tomorrow! LOL! I don't care if takes me a year to lose 30 lbs as long as I lose 30 lbs one day. Wish me luck, friends!!

Okay. . .I decided to create a scenery with the Greeting Farm "Dress Me" Anya and the "Wardrobe 2 - Summer" stamp sets. The "Wardrobe 2 -Summer" stamp set is now available for purchase.

To create the ocean. . .I used a dp that had a water photo. I had this dp for years . . .it's a good thing I held on to it. . .it makes for a great ocean. The dolphin and the crabs are 3D stickers by Jolee's by You.

Design tip:

To create the sand. . .I drew 2 wavy patterns and colored them brown. . .then layered them. . .one is slightly raised with foam tape to give the sand a layered dimension. To give Anya's sunglasses a shiny appearance, I added SU Crystal Effects to the image.

I colored Anya with my Copic markers. That's about it!

Check out my second card. . .it's all about bears and babies!

Card Details:

Stamps: The Greeting Farm Wardrobe 2 - Summer, Dress Me, Stampendous
Paper: DCWV designer paper, SU Real Red, Brilliant Blue
Ink: Copic Markers
Accessories: Jolee by You, SU Large Oval Punch, Grosgrain Ribbon, SU Crystal Effects

This is the second card I made. . .this time I used The Greeting Farm "Oh Baby" set. I title this card "Bear Attack" LOL! Holy. . .that's a lot of bears, huh! It's a babies heaven to be snuggled by all those stuffed bears!

Design tip:

To create all the bears, I masked the bears. The stamp set comes with only 1 bear. Masking is a great way to create a scenery.

Nothing much else to the card other than coloring the images with my Copic Markers.

The Greeting Farm currently have a challenge in progress. You can win 3 stamp sets so be sure to check out the challenge. You may be the lucky winner.

Anyway. . I hope you all have a wonderful Father's Day!!

Cute cards MAria, My goal is to loose 18 so far I've lost 3 lbs I began this week the gym. I hate exercising but I have bad news for you, there is no other way, doesnt matter eating less, or if we just complain about it the bottom line is we have to keep moving
