GUEST DESIGNER ANDREA SHELL!
For the month of November we have the awesome Andrea Shell from Blissfully Scrappy guesting for us! As you will see over the next few weeks her cards are amazing and she really does a fantastic job showcasing our stamps! We know you are going to love her as much as we do!
Hello, it’s Andrea from Blissfully Scrappy here, and I’m thrilled and honored to be guest designing for The Greeting Farm this month! I just love their adorable stamps and had a really hard time deciding which stamps to use for my first post. In the end I chose these cutie patooties from Wood Friends (I mean those sweet, little faces – sigh.).
After stamping my images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, I colored them with Copics and cut them out. My background was created by inking up two pieces of Bristol Smooth paper with distress ink: one with Broken China and the other with Peeled Paint. I die-cut the green piece with a grassy border die, adhered it to the sky, and die-cut both with a stitched rectangle die.
That fabulous sentiment is from the Hello & Smile set. I had decided to use this sentiment as soon as I saw the cute faces on these critters, so the entire time I was making this card (and even while writing this post), I was singing the country song “You make me smile.” The problem is, I only know that phrase and kept singing it over and over and over… You get the idea. I have got to download that song now! Anyway, after heat-embossing my sentiment, I adhered my background to some patterned paper from Simple Stories’ Pumpkin Spice and popped up my critters with foam tape. Some string tied at the top and a little Glossy Accents on the noses finish the card.
