For all the coffee lovers

Hey, hey! How are you doing? Enjoying the weekend? I was going through my clothes and started brining those warmer tops and trousers to the front of the wardrobe. Fall is in full swing already, which means the temperatures are not so high anymore.

Before I go to my today's card, I want to tell you that my mom has candy on her blog so hop there to check it out if you want. There are stamps, dies, papers, embellishments ... Lots of crafty goodies to be won. :)

I found out that there was a fall blog hop going on at the Coffe loving cardsmakers blog and I wanted to participate, so I quickly made this card.


Are you a coffee "addict"? I am not a big fan of coffee, but I do enjoy a cup of cocoa or hot chocolate. 

To make this card I used several scraps of paper from my stash in fall colours and some sequins to add some bling. The cups are The Greeting Farm stamp (from Perk up stamp set) and I coloured them with Promarkers and pencils. The cups also have matching dies which I used to cut them out. The sentiment is from The Greeting Farm's Hello Fall stamp set. In the background I used a Memory box stencil.


So, this is it from me for today. See you again soon. :)
Have a great day! xx

I decided to use Holiday Anya 5 stamp again. I just love her and I think she's perfect for the holiday cards.


I love purple and teal/turquoise colour combination and I decided to use it on my today's card. I had these papers in my stash for a while and I really like them. They are from Sandylion's Disney Tinkerbell paper pad. 


I coloured the image with Promarkers and pencils.


To decorate the card I used some lace, pearls, gems and sequins.

We’ll have more inspiration over the next few days using these fabulous new stamps! Don’t forget you have until Sunday, September 18th, 12pm CST to leave your comments.

TGF September release preview - Holiday Anya

Hello and welcome to the last day of previews on the TGF blog. We have another holiday image to share with you today. We started previews with Holiday Ian and it's only fair we have a Holiday Anya stamp for you too, right? ;)


I decided to go with an old CLP sketch for this card. As I wanted the image to stand out I didn't use many embellishments. I just sprinkled some Frantage around the image and decorated the card with some golden snowflake sequins, pearls, pearl trim and some gold crystals on top. Papers are from my stash. Sentiment came with the stamp.

See you again tomorrow. :) xx

TGF September release preview - Hello Fall

Good morning and welcome to the second day of The Greeting Farm previews. Yesterday we were showing you projects made with Holiday Ian stamp and today we are using the cute Hello Fall set. It's definitely another of those "must have" sets. ;) Please visit the TGF blog to see what my teamies made. 


I made a shaker card using 2 of the stamps from this set. How adorable is this little fox? Love it! And the sentiment is awesome too and can be used on sooooo many different occassions. To make this card I used papers from MME and some sequins from my stash. On the sentiment I also added a heart shaped crystal.

A nice and simple creation from me for a change. ;)

See you again tomorrow for the third day of previews.

TGF September release preview - Holiday Ian

Hello everybody! It's time for the new release from The Gretting Farm. I don't know about you, but I am already thinking about Christmas - decorations, cards, presents ... In fact, I have already bought a couple of Christmas presents just a few days ago. I'm surprising myself for being so organised. lol I just need to stock up on Christmas cards too, so I won't get crazy making those at the very last second. And the new TGF stamps are perfect for this occassion.

Today we are showcasing Holiday Ian stamp.


He's a cutie, isn't he? I have to admit I don't have (m)any boy holiday images, so I'm really glad I got to play with this one. I used different papers from my stash and distressed the edges with my distress tool. On snowlake border, stars and around the image I used some diamond Stickles. I decorated the card with sequins and some cheesecloth from my stash.


I coloured the image with Promarkers and pencils. Sentiment comes with the image.

So much from me today. See you again tomorrow for the second day of previews. :) xx
