The Greeting Farm Stamp Feature: HI/HELLO and THANK YOU Word Dies


Happy Thursday everyone! The Greeting Farm introduced 2 NEW Word Die Sets and 3 NEW Stamp Sets in the Store on May 15th, and the entire release is AWESOME! Today I made 3 cards to show off each of the new word dies: Hi/Hello and Thank You. I had so much fun making these! 
 
The first card was made by adding Copic alcohol ink to Yupo paper. After it dried, I die-cut the word Hi 3 times and layered the panel on top of the white card base. I finished the card by added white enamel dots to the corners.
 
 
For the second card, I die-cut the word hello from black cardstock, tapped the top of the word with a Versamark Ink Pad, sprinkled gold embossing powder on top and heat set it. Then I glued it on top of additional hello cut-outs to make it thick like chipboard. 
 
 
The last card got the floral treatment with some paper flowers and butterflies from I Am Roses!

StampingBella Guest Star Sunday: UPTOWN ZODIAC GIRL SAGITTARIUS

Happy Sunday everyone! I'm back today with my last post as the April Guest for StampingBella. I had an amazing time, and look forward to creating more StampingBella projects throughout the year. A huge THANK YOU to Em, Sandiebella, and all the ladies on the Design Team for giving me this opportunity and being so supportive! It's been awesome!

I love altering those cheap 8x8 wood frames from Walmart and Michaels. I knew when I was collecting the Zodiac Girls that I wanted to customize a frame for each girl. It's going to be a long process, but I can't wait to share each frame when they are finished! Since I'm a December 14th baby, I decided to start with Uptown Zodiac Girl Sagittarius.

 Copics:
Skin: E50, E00, E01, E11, E13
Hair: Black, C7, BG13
Dress/Boots: BG10, BG32, BG34, BG72, BG75, BG78
Gold Marker

After coloring the image, I painted the 8x8 frame with a couple of coats of Gold Metallic Paint.

 
 I found various zodiac and starry night digital papers on Etsy, and printed them off. Then I cut some 2" x 2" squares and 1.25" x 2" rectangles. I rounded the corners so they fit on the frame correctly. Next I cut out a 3.75" x 3.75" square piece for the center of the frame, and rounded the corners. I heat embossed the sentiment with Gold Embossing Powder. Then I added the glittery foam words and stars.


To finish off the altered frame, I raised Sagittarius on foam tape for extra dimension.


Be sure to head over to the StampingBella Store and grab your Zodiac girl....you're going to love her! These gorgeous girls are versatile for so many different occasions.

Have a great Sunday!

This would definitely be my dream world! The Happy Forever words are acrylic sticker letters that I also had in my stash.

Some of my favorite stamps are from the Rosie and Bernie line....one because my nickname is Rosie, and two I absolutely LOVE unicorns!! When we went on vacation last summer to Europe, I brought a unicorn and took pictures so when I scrapbook them I can use these stamps. :)
This was us in Bled, Slovenia!

 I raised Rosie and Bernie on foam tape. Also, I raise some of the hearts on foam tape and glued the ones further away from the image onto the cloud paper.

I stamped the images on X-Press It Blending Card in a row and colored them with Copic Markers. Next, I added the sky and finally some grass at the bottom.

  To finish it off, I turned an older C.C. Designs balloon die into speech bubbles, and raised them on foam tape.

StampingBella Guest Star Sunday: Curvy Girl BESTIES

Happy Sunday everyone! I am so excited because I have the awesome opportunity to be a Guest Designer for StampingBella for the month of April!! It's a dream come true! I love all their stamps, and this stamp called Curvy Girl BESTIES is one of my faves. I think they are gorgeous and love how this stamp can be used for so many different occasions.

Copics:
Girl 1 Skin: E51, E00, E01, E02, E11
Girl 1 Hair: E42, E47, E49
Girl 2 Skin: E11, E13, E15, E18

Red: R24, R27, R29, R39
Teal: BG10, BG13, BG15,  BG18, BG78
Green: YG23, YG17, YG67

I colored these ladies to represent me and my bestie. I met her in high school in the late 1980s and we instantly clicked. Over 30 years later, we are still friends, and now live less than an hour away from each other! She is definitely my sista from another mista. I found this wooden friendship sentiment in my stash, and thought it would be perfect for these two ladies.


I stamped the sentiment from the Curvy Girl Besties stamp a couple of times and cut it apart. I distressed the edge of the paper with Black Soot Distress Ink, backed each strip with black cardstock, and raised each panel on foam tape. The two ladies are also raised on foam tape. To finish it off, I added black enamel dots in the corners.


Be sure to head over to the StampingBella Store and grab some of your faves. Also, a NEW Release is coming on Monday, April 8th so tune in to see all the awesomeness!!

Have a great Sunday!
Rosie
