Happy Wednesday everyone! This is my newest card that I am entering in the Pink By Design weekly challenge. I just love all of their stamps! The sets I used to make this card are "Make it a Venti", "Perk Up", and the coffee background stamp. I colored all of the images in with my copic markers. The tag for the sentiment is the first cut of the images that come with the Cricut Imagine machine. I hope you enjoy!

I just can't seem to get enough of the Greeting Farm stamps lately. Here is my newest card with their Country Anya digi stamp. I also used my Cricut Create a Critter and Gypsy Wanderings cartridges for the paper piecing cuts. The sun, clouds and grass are all cut from white cardstock and colored with my copics. Anya is also colored with copics. It's getting kind of late and it's time for bed so I'm not going to list all of the other ingredients but please leave me a comment if you have any questions. I'm entering this is the Cricut Circle monthly challenge for August and The Greeting Farm's Farm Fresh Challenge. Thanks for looking!

I decided to try the technique posted on The Greeting Farm Blog where you use a very light colored ink to stamp your stamp with so the lines are not visible after they are colored in. I'm not sure I like it as much as when you can see the stamp line but hey, I gave it a shot! I do however like the way the card turned out. I did add some lines in with a black jelly pen in the end anyways hehe. For the flowers I cut them with my cricut out of white cardstock and colored them in with my copics. I then rubbed a rounded tool on the backside of all the leaves to add dimension. Here is what I used to make the card:
DCWV yellow cardstock
Papertrey Ink rasberry fizz cardstock
Papertrey ink white stamping cardstock
Colorbok white cardstock for flowers and embossed section
The Greeting Farm's "Fleur Anya" stamp
Pink By design's "shopaholic" stamp set for the sentiment
Cuttlebug Polka Dots embossing folder
Svgcuts.com 3d flowers set for the flower cuts
Tim Holtz Distress Ink in antique linen to stamp Anya
Memento ink in tuxedo black and rose bud for the sentiment
ribbon and rhinestones from my stash
I'm entering this card in The Greeting Farm's Mystery Monday challenge and ICopic's weekly challenge #44.
I hope you enjoy :)

This is my newest card. I've been making it one piece at a time for a while now and I finally put it all together in to a card for The Greeting Farm's Fresh Friday Challenge and ICopic's All About Children blog hop. I love these stamps! They are so super cute. A lot of times I will just stamp a whole sheet of paper and color them in a little at a time at my leisure without really knowing what I am going to use them for. I just really enjoy the coloring part of stamping! I stamped out the oven and hand cut the background hole to fit the oven in and give it depth. The oven door opens and closes. I hope you enjoy!
Here is what I used:
The Greeting Farm's Cupcake Anya digi stamp
Art Gone Wild's happy oven stamp set
cricut cuts for the background
Scrappy Mom's stamps "Sweet Nothings" for the sentiment
small buttons as accents

I just wanted to post this card I made a few days ago. I used my Imagine and the Yummy cartridge. I just love how easy it is to put cards together using the Imagine. I can make them in no time! I also used the Pink by Design stamp set called "Perk Up". You can check it out here. I hope you enjoy!

It's been so long since I have had a chance to post but I'm glad to be back. A few months ago a got a Cricut Imagine and I've had so much fun so far with it! I just got the Baby Boutique cartridge and this is my first project with it. So here is the formula:
The bird is cut at 2" from Baby Boutique
The frame is cut at 3.5" from Baby Boutique
The pink background is printed from Baby Boutique and trimmed to fit card size
The thanks cut is at 1" and is from Cindy Loo
The flowers are hand punched from Punch Bunch and Carla Craft punches
Rhinestones are added for embellishment
I hope you enjoy!
