The Greeting Farm Farm Fresh Friday Challenge

Hello everyone! I'm really excited about the card I'm sharing today. The Greeting Farm came up with a great challenge this week called "Getttin Wiggy With It". For this challenge your image must have no brunette, blonde, or red hair so it's time to break out the fun colors! I was really put outside my comfort zone with this challenge because I have NEVER colored these images with anything besides normal hair color. I'm soo happy that I was challenged to do this because I really love the results.

This is the first time I have used the trace feature on my Silhouette to cut around my digi stamps. I think the cut came out perfect around the stamp and it saved me the time of doing it myself by hand! I also took the extra step to break out my sewing machine to add some embellishment to this card. I think the Studio Calico wood veneer shapes added the perfect finishing touch. What do you think?

Here is what I used:
Copic markers
The Greeting Farm Valentine Anya Digi
patterned paper and sentiment from the Memory Keepers Love Struck stack
Papertrey Ink solid cardstock
Studio Calico Wood Veneer shapes

Thanks so much for stopping by!

July Avery Elle challenge

Hello everyone! I'm back today with my entry for the July Avery Elle challenge. The challenge is to make a project using this picture as inspiration. The winner of this challenge gets to be Avery Elle's guest designer for the month of September. How exciting! Be sure to head over to their blog to see all the other fabulous entries!

My newest Avery Elle stamp set is the Papel Picado Banners set. It has such a festive feel but for this project I wanted to show how it could be used as a design element as well and change the whole feeling of the set. Here is what I came up with.

Here is what I used to make this card:
Avery Elle Papel Picado Banners stamp set
Avery Elle Papel Picado Banners Die
Echo Park sticker alphas, patterned paper, and arrow from "Everyday Eclectic"
Papertrey Ink solid cardstock
Colorbox ink
Distress ink
Stampin Up Ink
twine from my stash. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
