It's Sassy Suzi Sprout Day!!!!! Do you remember the contest on The Greeting Farm to Design your own Sprout? Kim Yu won with her drawing of Sassy Suzi! What a wonderful image!!!! Kim will be participating with us and even has a Sassy Suzi to give away to a random commenter, courtesy of The Greeting Farm.
Sassy Suzi inspired me also! I made several projects with her. First, I made a card. Suzi is colored with copic markers. I coordinated her outfit with my K&Co. design paper. I used PTI cardstock and lots of glitter glue.
I found some daily planners in the Target dollar section. I used PTI cardstock, K&Co. DP, and glitter glue for Suzi. I measured my planner and built my design around it. I then laminated the cover and attached it to the planner with the super hold red tape. I like how they turned out. I colored Suzi to be a brunette and a blonde. I really love how much each project changes just by coloring the image different. Hope you enjoyed my projects and make sure to visit all of the Design Team and Kim Yu too!
Pixie Dust Studios is having a new release of the digital set Forest Friends! I chose Nuttin but Love. These two little squirrels are just perfect for a Valentines card or a card to someone you love. I colored the image with Copic markers. I used PTI cardstock and K&Co. design paper. I embellished my card with ribbon, rhinestone hearts, and lots of glitter glue. I added a heart charm and a tag that reads "Nuts about you". I hope you like it! You can purchase this Digital stamp and all the others from the collection on December 1st from Pixie Dust Studios. Make sure and visit all of the Design Team and see what they created from the Forest Friends digital stamps!!!
The Robyn's Fetish challenge this week is to make a penny spinner card. There are several good tutorials on this technique. My favorite came from Splitcoast Stampers. I chose the bee from the Robyn's Fetish store and colored him with Copic markers. I used K& Co. paper. My spinner is several Prima flowers and when you tip the card the flowers spin down the channel. Make sure to visit the rest of the Design Team and see what they created for this challenge.

When I found out The Greeting Farm was releasing ten, yes 10, new digital stamps I was amazed. The images are called Chibis and are they ever cute!!!! I designed with the drink Chibi. I am from the Southwest and to me she looks like she is holding a margerita. Every year for Thanksgiving and Christmas my Father makes margaritas, it's out tradition. I love seeing him ready the blender and drinking a drink out of a cute little glass. He is a beer man usually! So, I made my Chibi using him as inspiration. I colored her with Copics and embellished her with glitter glue. I made a cart and covered it with K&Co. paper. I added a little umbrella and a banner. I am envisioning this as a centerpiece to a drink station for a party or get together.
Make sure to visit all of the Design Team to see all their Chibi creations!
I made a pillow box and added the versitile stamp from the My House Collection from The Greeting Farm. A gift card to a home improvement store would fit nicely in this box allowing the recepient to purchase a few new things for their new home. I colored the image with copics. I used a border punch, brad, felt ribbon, twine and a button to embellish the box. I used K&Co paper. I think that this would be a lovely gift for someone moving into a new home!

Have you seen the new fairies from The Greeting Farm? They are digital stamps. As soon as I saw that there was a fairy for each season I knew what I had to make...a calendar box. The calendar box is a combination of easel card and box. The box has a drawer which allows the various headers to be stored when not in use. Each of the seasonal fairies has a strip of velcro on the back to allow them to be changed out with the season. I used Basic Grey paper and lots of different embellishments. The most difficult thing about this project was keeping it balenced on such a small scale. I did not want it to look busy but, I also wanted it to be interesting. I am really proud of how this turned out. I made it for my daughter as a gift but, I am having a hard time parting with it!

You have to check out the new digital stamps by Janet McDonnell by The Greeting Farm. They are awesome. I had a blast coloring them. I used A+ Anna and Gothic Roxy to make this CD card I designed for my daughter. I made a joy fold card that fit into the insert of the CD case on the one side. On the other side I created a tag holder so that I could write a message. I colored the images with Copic markers and used the Girlfriend collection from Cosmo Cricket for the DP.
Isn't Madelynn just the cutest? These Twinkle Tots stamps from The Greeting Farm are so much fun!!!! Madelynn is colored with Copic markers. I used Basic Grey paper and PTI cardstock. She is embellished with a ribbon, button and leaf charm. I also added a chipboard photo corner.
