Hey all! Welcome to the June release for C.C. Designs! We have a bunch of new super sweet images to share with you!
I am sharing my first project of a super clean and simple card using the New Snow Swissie! I love her ever so much.
I decided to colour her up using my coloured pencils, something I have not picked up in a very long time! I had so much fun playing with them. I die cut it out with the Scalloped Rectangle die to put her on the card front.
It’s the 15th, and the NOVEMBER RELEASE is now available for purchase in The Greeting Farm Store! Our three new sets Miss Anya Darling, Grateful For You and Cheeky Handy are in the store and ready for you to scoop up.
To celebrate we are having a short BLOG HOP, where one lucky fan will take home the entire release! You have until NOVEMBER 18th at 12pm CST/1pm EST to leave your comments on each Designer’s Blog and The Greeting Farm Blog (letting us know you completed the hop). We will announce the random winner later in the week.
Today I coloured her up in a black and white style with my colored pencils! I am over the moon with how she came out. Pulling out some Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Inks!

Hey everyone! I have a fun card today. I have been getting myself out of my funk, and today’s card was nothing but fun! I feel am loving making cards again!
I stamped this girl from Miss Anya Coffee Break on a piece of toned grey paper. I decided to see what I could do with 6 pencils, one of them being black to retrace the stamped lines. It was a challenge and a great time to see all the different shades of brown I could get with the same 5 coloured pencils!
Pencils used: Luminance – Sepia Sepia 50% Brown Ocher 10% White Faber Castell – Bister Black
Hey all! Welcome back to day 3 of previews for The Greeting Farm! We are nearing the new release!
Today’s set is called The More the Merrier! It is full of the cutest little critters ever!
Let’s talk about this card! I had a fantastic time colouring up the little hedge hog and door! and for some reason while I had them all masked out I decided it was a door to no where? Notice the blue sky and green grounding. But, I was so happy with how it looked all put together that I did not want to change it and try and make it look like the inside or outside of a house. So I left it the way it was. I am really happy with how it turned out.
I have been doing so much painting with my watercolours lately, that it was so much fun to pull out my colored pencils and colour this one up!
Hey everyone! We are back for another set of previews for The Greeting Farm! This month’s release is amazing!!
I pulled out all my coloured pencils for this one. One thing I love about this medium is how friendly they all play together. Prismacolor, Polychromos and Luminance. I can mix them in endless ways to create tons of looks!
I think added a little bit of detail with a white Posca marker and added some stitching to finish it off. The sentiment comes from the Holiday Wishes stamp set.
Hey everyone! I have been doing tons of colouring lately. But not a lot that I can show… yet!
So for today, I pulled out the Bring Out The Sunshine set from My Favorite Things, and coloured her up on Neenah Desert Storm cardstock. I haven’t coloured up anything on kraft cardstock in a long time.
I recently purchased a set of 20 Caran D’ache Luminance coloured pencils, and 4 additional colours to that. So I mixed them with my Polychromos to colour up this little lady.
My verdict on the Luminance pencils after their first use… I will be buying more. Lol I am an art supply junkie!
Hey everyone! I am still plugging along on the 30 day colouring challenge! I pulled out one of the newer sets from Simon Says Stamp called Chillin’ Frenchies!
I have not played with my pencil’s in a long time. Also, seeing as my son’s baseball season is coming to an end I thought it was the perfect opportunity to make a fun card for the coach from all the boys on the team. I don’t normally gush about my boy, or people in our lives. But my goodness did he get a great coach this year, he went above and beyond doing extra practices with the boys, and helping them become little men.
So I coloured this one up on some kraft coloured cardstock. Super happy with this clean and simple card. Now I need to colour up the rest of the dogs in this set!
Hey everyone! Today I have a guest post for Stamping Bella! I am so thrilled to be guest designing for them, it really is a dream. I have loved the stamps this company releases for years!
For my first card, I pulled out Curvy Girl Eats Cake and my coloured pencils. I haven’t shown my pencils much love lately, but this was the perfect opportunity.
I stamped her out with a light colour ink, to give the no lines colouring look, once everything was finished. Then I went in and coloured it up with my Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils.
Once I got her all coloured up, I decided I wanted the sentiment to look really sketchy as well. So I stamped it with the same light coloured ink, then traced over it with my black pencils to give it the sketchy look.
