The Greeting Farm- Coffee Shop & Sweets

Hello everyone, Happy Thursday! I'm up over at, The Greeting Farm blog with a cute little coffee themed card. I know a bunch of you have already received your may release orders and have been having fun inking them up. I just love this months release and decided to feature the new, "Need Coffee" stamp set today.
Colored using Copic Markers.
I don't know what goes together better than, The Greeting Farm and Doodlebug.
I used the cute little sweet shop from the Odds & End cream & sugar pack. I think it goes perfectly with this adorable little Coffee Lover from the, Need Coffee set, don't you?
Pattern Paper: Spring Things-DoodleBug Designs
I added some misc. enamel dots and a cute little AC bow to my girly's hair to finish the card up.
Thank you all for stopping by. Have a FUN and SAFE, Memorial Weekend!

The Greeting Farm- May Release Previews- Best Day Ever

Welcome, Welcome!! Today is DAY 2 of Previews for our May Release, which will be available for purchase in The Greeting Farm Store on Monday, May 15th
  Don’t forget, we will have a New Release Blog Hop on the 15th, where 1 lucky winner will receive all 3 sets! Today, we are featuring a super fun set called, "Best Day Ever".
Here is my card featuring the new stamps from today's set.
For today's card I decided to create a fun little carnival scene by merging and masking multiple images from today's set. I had so much fun creating this labor of love. I colored all my images using my Copic markers. I wanted the focus to be mainly on the scene itself, so I kept it simple and just matted my scene onto some black cardstock to make it really pop, then adhered to white card base.
What do you think? I can tell you this set will probably sell out pretty dang quick so be sure to be on your game come the 15th :)

The Greeting Farm- May Release, Baby Laundry

Welcome, Welcome!! Today is DAY 1of Previews for our May Release, which will be available for purchase in The Greeting Farm Store on Monday, May 15th
  Don’t forget, we will have a New Release Blog Hop on the 15th, where 1 lucky winner will receive all 3 sets! Today, we are featuring the ultra adorable, "Baby Laundry" Stamp set.
Here is my card featuring the new stamps from today's set.
I decided to make a shaker card using this sweet new set. I used the coordinating dies to cut out a baby onesie directly on card panel. I then stamped all the adorable little pieces of girl clothing in a random pattern ontp card creating this monochromatic look. I filled with misc. sequins and beads and finished my card off by stamping sentiment using the same pink ink, onto banner and adding more sequins.
This is a fun and simple card that's quick and easy to whip up and can easily be made into a boys card or even a gender neutral card.  I think it would even be cute without being a shaker card for and even quicker method.

SugarPea Designs is hopping with My Sweet Petunia!


Hello and Happy Friday everyone!! I'm so excited for you all to be joining us for this super fun collaboration. I have a fun and easy project to share with you all using my SugarPea Design products and my Mini Misti and Creative Corners.

I will also be sharing some step by step photos to show you how I created this clean and simple design.
Let's get started, shall we!

See step by step process below...
Stamps and Dies used will be listed at end of tutorial.
Step 1: I started by placing my angled triangle piece in bottom corner. I then slid my paper in place where I wanted and held in place with magnets & corner piece.
I stamped sentiment using 3 different colors of red in to make an ombre effect.
Inks used: Ladybug, Rhubarb Stalk & Poppy
Stem: Pear Tart

Step 2: Move paper up 1/4"

Step 3: Because I'm stamping at an angle, my next sentiment wasn't long enough to go across paper completely. So all I did was stamp it off the paper, this way the beginning will be at the end and you'll be able to see all the little sentiments.

Step 4: Move paper all the way to top 1" and all the way to left edge leaving only 1/4". You will also need to move your triangle edge up a 1/2". We are going to do some more stamping off edge to get a couple sets of repetitive books. This will make our design look coherent with the sentiment above.

Step 5: Remove triangle edge in order to stamp last image. I used a boarder stamp here and only inked and stamped the part I needed, this way you don't get ink on your Misti ruler guides.

Step 6: Last part was to stamp our cute little book worm. All I did here was use the corner brace pieces to hold paper in place and make for easy placement of worm without anything interfering and getting in way.


I'm not gonna show this step, but I also ended up using my large Misti Tool to stamp my green background paper using the cute little Chalkboard stamp from the Class Act stamp set.

Products Used:
SugarPea-Designs-Class-Act


SugarPea-Designs-Sweet-Sentiments-Teacher

Store--Build-A-Background---Basics


Store-SugarCuts-Notebook-Journal-Card


MINI MISTI


I finished my card by adding some bakers twine & sequins.

Please be sure to leave a comment on each blog for a chance to win some AMAZING goodies!!

  • There will be 2 winners for a $25.00 Gift certificate for the SugarPea Design Shop and 1 winner of Misti Stamping Tool (winner will have choice of either the original or mini).
  • MISTI Winners will be announced on the My Sweet Petunia blog on April 28th.   
  • SugarPea Winners will be announced over at the SugarPea Blog.
