The Greeting Farm - Birthday Cards

January seems to be the month with the most family and friends, celebrating their birthdays; at least for me.  So, I have been busy creating several birthday cards this past weekend.

This is one of my new Greeting Farm Stamps, Birthday Anya, colored with Copics.  I really need to start writing down the colors I use, when coloring.  Anyway, most of the papers used were from DCWV Glitter Mat Stack, except for the purplish color; and that was just a piece of scrap cardstock (purchased in a bundle at Joann's).  The front mat was wrapped with pre-adhesive Martha Stewart ribbon and anchored with two pearl brads.  I added a Prima flower (sprayed with Frost Glimmer Spritz), which was actually my inspiration for the colors on this card.  A little faux stitching and a simple sentiment, distressed with Tim Holtz Antique Linen...

This next card... I used The Greeting Farm Stamp, Lolli Anya, also colored with Copic markers.  Is she not the cutest thing???  The card is a standard A2 size card.  The polka dot mat is from the Paper Studio Birthday Extravaganza mat stack.  Attached with brass brads, I stamped the sentiment on white cardstock and distressed the edges with Tim Holtz Antique Linen.  Then I added a Prima flower sprayed with Frost Glimmer Spritz and attached with glue dots.

The Greeting Farm Stamp, Flirty Anya, colored with Copics, is just so sweet.  I really struggled with coloring her black hair, but I think it turned out okay.  The card is a standard size, A2 card in Kraft.  Both the red cardstocks were embossed using the Cuttlebug and Tim Holtz, Damask embossing folder.  I also rubbed some Tim Holtz Antique Linen to make the design pop.  The two scalloped circles were cut using the Cricut.  The black polka dot mat is from DCWV Adhesive Mat Stack Prints.  Attached with black glittered brads, the sentiment was stamped on white cardstock and distressed with Tim Holtz Worn Lipstick.

Last but not least...  TGF, from the Creepy Crew Collection, CC Tuesday was also colored with Copic markers.  All the images from the Creepy Crew Collection are so stinkin cute!  This particular stamp reminded me of my sister; so I had to have it...  I used a standard size, A2 card base in black cardstock.  The polka dot mat was from The Adhesive Mat Stack Print from DCWV.  The top blue mat was embossed using my Cuttlebug with the Argyle embossing folder.  I also rubbed Tim Holtz Broken China, to make the Argyle design stand out a bit.  Added another Prima flower, spritz with Frost Glimmer Spritz.  The ribbon is from American Crafts, Greeting Collection.  Also attached with copper brads, the sentiment was stamped and distressed with Tim Holtz Broken China.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hoped you enjoyed all the cards.  Let me know if you have any questions or comments...
