I attempted to make this a more masculine card. Those are always so difficult. I used the super cute new Twinkle Tots stamp from The Greeting Farm's new release and colored it with Copic Markers. All the paper is from the Boyfriend Collection from Cosmo Cricket. I even used brads that look like screw heads and lots of masculine stitching.

Robyn's Fetish Challenge this week was to use a recipe to make a card. We were to use 2 types of cardstock, 3 types of design paper, glitter, ribbon, bling, and a flower(s). I made my countdown to Christmas Calendar with the adorable Santa's Workshop and Elf and Tree digi stamps. I used lots of glitter glue and rhinestones. I used many ribbons to decorate my binding of my calendar. I made a flower from cardstock and placed it atop of a decorative clip that holds the days to countdown to Christmas.
Make sure and visit all the Robyn's Fetish DT and see their creative ideas for this challenge. Also, take a look at the Robyn's Fetish store and see what jumps into your basket. They have so many adorable images for the upcoming holiday!

I have such exciting news to share with you!!! But, first let me tell you about my project using a Marina Neira TGF rubber stamp. I used little Marlene Monkey to create a Countdown to Christmas Calendar. I colored Marlene in with Copic markers, cut her out, and added dimentionals. She was then places on American Crafts paper. The paper is sewn using various stiches for texture. A golden clip and rhinestones were added to make her sparkle. The calender is cut from chipboard and laced together with rivets and ribbon. I made a clip to hold the cards that allow you to countdown the days. I made a paper tote bag to hold all the pieces and allow me to give this as a gift. The tote bag allows the clip to be visible and add as a decoration to the bag and a sneak peak to what is inside!!!!
Now, for the first time ever at The Greeting Farm..............Drum roll please.......

I am pleased to announce that I am a member of the newly formed Pixie Dust Design Team. This digital stamp store has the cutest images. Go to the Pixie Dust Blog and read the story of Pixie Pie and Wink. Visit all the characters and then stop by the Etsy store. I guarentee you will not be able to walk away without out something jumping in your cart....maybe even Pixie Pie :)
I created my card with this adorable Pixie Pie and wink image. Easel cards are so much fun to make. This one is created with PTI cardstock and K&Co. paper. Lots of stiching was added to add texture. I higligted Pixie Pie and Wink with a flourish stamp sprinkled with rhinestones. Diamond glitter glue was added to make Pixie Pie sparkle. I added the "adorable" setiment to the bottom of the card.
Remember to go say "hi" to Pixie Pie and Wink at the Pixie Dust Blog!!!!!

This card is using the new TGF(The Greeting Farm) stamp set "My House" I made a neighborhood with the two house images and popped the main house up with dimentionals. I added the grass and the sky to ground the whole image. I colored it all with Copics. Lots of sewing was added to the K&Co. paper. A ribbon, a button, and a key charm finish off this card. I really like how this turned out.
