Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Anything Goes

The first card I made is using a Magnolia stamp from the Butterfly Kisses range.  I coloured her in with my copics and used some Atyou Spica pens on her wings and the ruffles on her dress.  I then cut out the image using a Spellbinders die.

The floral patterned paper was punched out with the Martha Stewarts corner and border punches.  I can't seem to remember the name of it!  The 'Happy Birthday' sentiment is from a Papertrey Ink stamp set called Inside and Out : Birthday.

I used flowers from iamroses as embellishments to match the colours on the pattern paper and also a polka dot ribbon from my stash.

This next card was envisioned in my head and I am very happy with the physical result. The main graphic sentiment stamp is from Taylored Expressions from their graphic greeting line of stamps.  This one was called Birthday I believe.  I then stamped the sentiment another two times in Hero Arts Bubble Gum and Tide Pool ink and randomly cut out two sentiments to be popped up on dimensional adhesive.

The banner was die cut using a die from La-la Land Crafts.  This is my new favorite die.  Cuts so nicely and loving the stitched border around it. 

I die cut the window to fit the sentiment using my Silhouette Cameo.  The pink frame is also die cut using my Silhouette cameo.  Lurve that I have the option to cut it whatever size and shape I want. 

That's all from me today.  Thanks for visiting my blog.

Have a great week!

The Greeting Farm's Farm Fresh Friday Challenge - Anya-licious & Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes Challenge

This is my entry for this week's challenge at the TGF and SSS blog, both with a focus on Anya stamps.

I just realised that I do not have a lot of Anya stamps even though I have alot of Greeting Farm stamps.  LOL...But Fancy Anya is definitely one of my favorites so here is the card I made.

The pattern paper is from a very old patterned paper pack from SEI called Moonrise.  The paper is so beautiful that I really did not want to embellish too much and instead let the paper and the Anya image be the focal points.

Anya is coloured in with Copics and the die cut behind the image is from Memory Box called Hopemeadow. Love it. So intricate.  I paper pieced her dress from one of the pattern papers in the paper pack and put stickles on her hair pins and her belt. The sentiment is from Signature Style Greetings stamp set by Papertrey Ink.

On the inside of the card, I used the same die cut to create some form of continuity.

Hope you like it.  Thanks for visiting my blog!
