The Greeting Farm Stamp Feature: ANGELS REJOICE

Happy Friday everyone! The Greeting Farm introduced 3 NEW Stamp Sets in the Store on November 15th along with their short BLOG HOP! Come play along for a chance at winner the entire release!
 
Today, I'm featuring ANGELS REJOICE. These angels are so sweet and adorable! This set also has coordinating dies HERE. On the little stamps, I recommend purchasing the coordinating dies because it makes it so much easier to cut them out.
    

I recently came across a tutorial on a Rain Shaker Card by Laura Dovalo. It's pretty incredible so I gave it go with this Angel card. The hubby thought it was so cool!


When you shake the card the beads slide up and down. I will definitely be trying this card again. It was so much fun to make!


You can see this card in action on The Greeting Farm Fan Page.


Don't forget to head over to The Greeting Farm Blog to see more inspiration from my fellow DT Sisters!

Have an awesome weekend!

C.C. Designs: Vampy Wishes!

Happy Friday everyone! C.C. Designs had an awesome, spooktacular release in September, and with Halloween right around the corner I decided to color up Vampy Wishes! Isn't he amazing?! And that bat is just the cutest thing ever!


The bat paper was from an older Recollections 12x12 Paper Pad called Haunted Estate. It was originally orange with the bats. My tip of the day....if you have decorative paper that doesn't match, color it!!


The entire Halloween Release was a lot of fun to create with, and I just couldn't let the month end without giving this fabulous vampire some more exposure. We hope to see you creating and sharing with us on the C.C. Designs Customer Facebook Page.

There are so many ways to recreate friendships using this set, along with the endless customized birthday cards you can make. I mean seriously, could their hairstyles and outfits be any more stylish?!

 

I decided to create an outdoor scene using three of the boys. The background was created using ZIG markers on watercolor paper. It's so easy!! I just scribbled some of the marker on the watercolor paper and then used a wet paintbrush to create the sky and grassy area.


I stamped the boys on X-press It Blending Card and colored them with Copic Markers. I then cut them out using the coordinating Outline dies. I raised them on pop-dots for added dimension.
