Feb. Farm Fresh Challenge – 3D

farmfreshchallenge

Hey all! It’s Feb 1, that means its time to start a new Farm Fresh Challenge on The Greeting Farm Blog!

The challenge for this month is 3D, and this is so out of my comfort zone!!! But I did come up with something for you all!

TGF - Carnival wm.jpg

I coloured up SSSC no. 25 – Carnival  with my copic markers a while ago, and thought this was the perfect little project for it!

I broke out my Cameo and cut a square pillow box and all the pattern paper layers with the file, once it was all cut out I inked up all the pattern papers and then glued them onto the pillowbox, adding my image, some chipboard and wild orchid craft flowers and this little box was done!

I can’t want to see what you create this month!

Just Because

LDRS Just Because 2.jpg

Hey everyone! I am back with another post for LDRS Creative!

I have always loved making cards with only sentiments, I have been doing fewer and fewer of them. But LDRS had some fantastic sentiment  sets that work so perfect for these types of cards! I used the Just Because set for this card!

LDRS Just Because 1.jpg

I embossed the sentiment on vellum and die cut it out with the Basic Stitched Flags Dies, lots of paper layers, Wild Orchid Crafts flowers, enamel dots, and cheese cloth finished off this card!
