"Snow and Cocoa" Inspired, p.2

Happy Friday farm friends, I'm on the TGF blog with another "Snow and Cocoa" inspired post. As you know, the Crate and Paper line is sooo cute with its pinks and blues but that also means that its really popular and sold out pratically every where.  Yesterday's project was inspired by a polr bear tag found in the ephemera pack.

Todays project was inpired by the whole line. I took elements from different pieces and used them as inspiration. I created 4 cards size 3x4 which I found  were the perfect size to play and experiment. Plus, they are perfect for a DD album or for project life. I used several greeting farm sets for this project. I like looking at all the smaller stamps on the sets because they can be used to create awesome mini projects.  I hope you found inspiration here and give it a go to create your own set. Happy weekend!

Hello All! I'm on the Quick Creations blog today and today I have a Christmas card featuring the adorable greeting farm reindeers.  I was inspired by the poloraid frames found in the "odds and ends" pack and so I thought it would be cute to make it look as if its their christmas card that they are sending out to their snow friends. hehe. Cute, right! I hope you found inspiration here today and start on your christmas projects.
Thanks for stopping by.

Snow and Cocoa Inspired

Happy Thursday farm friends, I'm on the TGF bog with a "Snow and Cocoa" inspired post. The absolute super cute pink and colorful winter-christmas line released by Crate Paper has been very popular amongst us crafters and thus has been extremely hard to find. Everywhere I look, most of it is sold out and so I decided to be inspired by the line and by an  ephemera piece in particular. This greeting farm polar bear from the set "Let It Snow" was perfect to recreate the bear tag (seen in the top picture), I like a lot from the ephemera pack. 

I created my tags by: stamping the bear with black ink, creating a mask for the bear and applying it to the tag, using distress inks of various aqua shades and pink and then stamping the mini stars found on the stamp set. This doesn't require much coloring as the bear is stark white but you can opt for minor shading as I did.  These are quick, simple and great for mass production.  Now its your turn to give it a go. I hope it's snowing wherever you find yourself.

DECEMBER Farm Fresh Challenge: Sparkle

Happy DECEMBER 1st! Wow!! That was insanely quick how this year just went by. It is the last farm fresh and this time we want to see some ... SPARKLE.  It's time to go crazy with your sequins, gems, sparly paper and work on some fun projects. I went for a fairy winter wonderland theme because these fairies are just too cute to be only used for spring/summer projects. They look right at home with all the girly colors.

Make sure to click over to the TGF blog to see what the rest of the farmers created for you. You will also find the guidelines there so you can play along with us. Thanks for stopping by.
