Glitter Anya Experiment

I wanted to make a Christmas card with a Greeting Farm stamp. The only problem was that I didn't own any Greeting Farm Christmas stamps lol (although I have some coming in the mail, yay!). I decided to experiment a little with my Fleur Anya stamp to see what I could come up with. I I coated a piece of white cardstock with white glitter and then I used VersaMark to stamp Anya on to the glitter. I then coated the stamped image with glitter embossing powder and heat set the powder. I colored in Anya with my Copic markers on top of the white glitter. To me Christmas means red and sparkly so this is what I came up with. I also used the Cricut Winter Lace cartridge to cut the snowflakes. I love my Cricut! I can't seem to do any project without using it. The sentiment is a K and Company sticker. So what do you think? I'd love it if you told me some of your thoughts. Thanks for looking!

I've entered this card in The greeting farm's Farm Fresh Friday challenge and Cricut Circle's weekly blog challenge.

P.S. Thanks so much to The Greeting Farm design team member Emily Martina! I won her Greeting Farm gift card giveaway. She's extremely talented and I love seeing what she comes up with for all the Greeting Farm challenges. Visit her fabulous blog Beans Scraps & Sheep.

KinderStampO's Color it Monday Design Team Submission

Hello everyone! Jessica at KinderStampO is having her Color it Monday challenge today. Here is the color inspiration and my design team submission. I used the KinderStampO "Greetings from Home" stamp set for the sentiment.Check it out at the KinderStampO store. The butterflies are black Elizabeth Craft stickers that I stuck on top of cardstock covered in white glitter. I then colored over the glitter with my Copic markers. I really love the way the glitter sparkles underneath the Copic color. For the base of the card I welded a card using my Gypsy and the Ornamental Iron cartridge. The black gate cuts are also from the Ornamental Iron cartridge. Check out all the other submissions and join the fun at

Meet the KinderStampO Design Team Blog Hop

Are you ready for some blog Candy?!

Jessica from KinderStampO is announcing her design team today and I'm very proud to announce that I have been chosen to be a part of this amazing group of ladies! I'm so eager to start sharing my work with all of you and I would be very honored if you would like to follow me. The KinderStampO motto is Live, Craft, Inspire so here is a little information about me and a new project so you can get a feel for my style.


I live in sunny southern California where I'm a retail store manager for a national chain of clothing stores. I love clothes and fashion and I face new challenges and goals everyday. I live with my boyfriend of four years. I have always been into art and crafting and have managed to get in to many different crafts over the years and studied fine art in school.


Currently my love is paper crafting and I love everything about it. I started my first scrapbook a little over a year ago and in that short time I have bought 2 Expressions, an Imagine, and acquired a huge number of Cricut cartridges because I'm totally addicted! My new love is using Copic markers to create cards. It's like coloring for adults and I find it very relaxing.


I am totally inspired each and everyday by all the amazing crafters I see on the blogs and message boards. Every time they do something fabulous it inspires me to create something fabulous as well. I also really love the fact that we are able to get new ideas and techniques from each other and use them in our own way. I'm very excited to be on Jessica's deign team and I hope that the followers find a little bit of inspiration in my work as well whether it's a new technique or a new idea that they haven't come across yet. Hopefully I can challenge someone to try something new!
