Good morning everyone! Looking for a fun challenge to participate in? Well we have a fun one for you at The Greeting Farm! Today is Double Take Tuesday, and our challenge this week is Purple and Green!!
I have had this piece of paper with the purses on it forever!! (think it's Cosmo Cricket) The purse die is a Cuttle Kids die that came with a high heeled shoe, a crown, and a bow. The sentiment is from a Paper Smooches set. I used some of my fav Copic colors on this- Y26 & Y28, also R22, R24, and R27.
It's been a long time since I have done any black/white coloring, and I really enjoy it! It can be a challenge, but I don't spend a lot of time matching up colors with paper, so that makes things go much quicker. I have had this grey/yellow paper forever, (think it is from Authentique), and this was the perfect opportunity to get it out. The "you are so nice" sentiment is from Paper Smooches, but the rest are all stamps included in this Kaylee set.
Check out the new forum when you can, and get a load of some serious inspiration over there!
I used a sort of postage stamp shaped die set to make the entire card. The flower and banner dies are from My Favorite Things. I also colored an extra flower from her hair to attach to the banner. Since I fussy cut her, I had to glue her wings onto the back side of her, but I think they still look pretty good.
Love that giant "flirt" badge. It's from a pack I found
at Archivers by Creative Imaginations.

I think the butterfly paper was probably a Recollections sheet I picked up at Michaels. The cloud dies are from My Favorite Things, and the butterflies are a Martha Stewart punch. I used a couple different dies to make the flower under the big brad. After I cut out a few colors and shapes I wanted for the flower, I then crumpled them up to give it some texture and body. The salmon colored cardstock with the stitching was cut using just the end of one of my Nesties. To finish it off, I then put a few pieces of washi tape on two opposite corners. (the tape is from Smash)
In case you haven't heard- there is a new fun forum that SOG is using for all of us SOG fans to hang out and talk stamps, paper, whatever you want! You can also post SOG pics, and get loads of inspiration from everyone in there! Check it out here!

If you haven't stopped by The Greeting Farm's blog today, then you must go check it out! They have announced the new Showcase Design Team for 2013, and I am proud to announce that I am part of that wonderful team!! The Greeting Farm holds a special spot in my heart, and I couldn't be happier to be working with some of the most talented people I know!
Over Christmas break I put together a little card album using Olivia from the Lovey Dovey set.
I saw this idea on Pintrest, and just had to make some! (still need one for myself!) If you haven't heard me say it before, I LOVE coloring on kraft paper!!! This time I used varying shades of brown, but often I use normal colors as well. I built the flower out of different shaped scalloped circles, and plain circles. I crumpled up the circles and used some distressing ink on them to give them depth and character.
Have yourself a little look-see and find out about the other lovely ladies on the new TGF team!
