Farm Fresh Challenge

Hey all! It is November 1st, which means time for a new Farm Fresh Challenge over at The Greeting Farm this month we are doing one layer cards, a personal favorite of mine!

The Greeting Farm - Lift off go time - Jessie Banks.jpg

I did tons of masking for this card, combining Mega-Mini Go Time, and Mega Mini Lift Off. I created the background with my Distress Oxides on Kraft Cardstock, then coloured up all the rest using my coloured pencils, I mix Prisma Colour and Polychromos Pencils.

I have been making tons of Happy Birthday cards lately, I was running low! I hope you found some inspiration in this and you play along


Dolly Diver


Hey everyone! It is Wednesday and that means its time for another Wonderful Wednesday challenge! Bring out your Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps, and make whatever your heart desires, no theme, doesn’t even have to be a card!

Kraftin Kimmie Stamps - Dollie Diver - Jessie Banks.jpg

I coloured up Dolly Diver, with my Faber-Castell Polychromos, and Prismacolor coloured pencils. I did this hanging out outside on my deck before the weather started to cool off, so I do not have a list of colours that I used. I have been all over these super CAS cards lately and this one is no exception. I created an angled block of colour along the top of the panel for my sentiment to sit along.

Hope you found some inspiration here to play along!
