Preview of "Oh Dragon" from The Greeting Farm...making my own PL cards!




Hi there!
How many of you make your own filler cards for your pocket pages? I DO! It's easy and it's fun, plus you can customize them any way you'd like. Today I wanted to show you two cards that I made for my pocket album using a new set of stamps from The Greeting Farm that will be available on March 15, 2107 at:


The set is called "Oh Dragon" and is filled with little dragon images, plus icons like smoke puffs and flames, rocks and dragonflies PLUS sentiments! Use your imagination and come up with some great ways to use these fierce creatures!

I used paper from Lawn Fawn as a background,  using a die to cut the card perfectly with those rounded edges that I've grown to love. I used a stitched cloud die for the bottoms of each card, then colored up the dragon images, added sentiments and popped up different areas for dimension. Do you have any questions? Just ask!

Remember, you can find me on You Tube as well at:

See you soon!

Preview of Little Heroes from The Greeting Farm!




It's sneak peek time!!! You can't have this stamp YET.....but I know you want it, am I right? It's too cute! This set is called Little Heroes and it will be available on March 15th, 2017 at The Greeting Farm! It has lots of little icons, four characters and sentiments. It's so versatile!


Here's my card:

I used an old paper pad (photo down below my card photos) by Recollections. Both of the images on the front are interactive. I used some dies that you cut into your paper, add pop dots and suddenly your images are free to fly and soar around the front of your card at will. I love that!! I thought that it would be perfect for these cards since the images are super heroes, they need to fly! I added Stickles and Glossy Accents around the card to make it more sparkly and dimensional.


This photo just shows the front and inside at the same time. I feel like it resembles a comic book, which was my goal. 


Here's the inside of the card. I have to say, I am pretty darn happy with how this card turned out. I made another card for the blog hop using this set so be sure to come back for them hop!

Here is what that paper pad looks like if you happen to go on the hunt for it:

Have a great day!

An altered box using Bonjour Anya from The Greeting Farm!





Hello everyone!!!!

Today I have a project for The Greeting Farm using a digital image called Bonjour Anya! You can pick her up by clicking HERE!

I started with an old cardboard box that I wanted to alter. First I spray painted the top of the box white to cover what was already printed on it.  I used paper from Recollections called My Favorite Things. It's a pretty old collection but I still love it and it went perfectly with the French theme.  
I mod podged the paper to the front, bottom and on the inside of the box. I cut out a circle out of that same paper collection and pop dotted it onto the center of the top of the box and adhered Anya and her Bonjour sentiment to the circle, then added Glossy Accents to make her outfit shiny. I glued on die cut leaves, plus flowers and butterflies. I added Stickles to the flowers for extra sparkle. I also added lace round the edge of the box.

I hope that you like my project and that it inspires you to pick up Bonjour Anya today!
Until next time, have a great day!
Carol

Christmas Prep with OHCC! Making holiday cards (and some spring time cards too using the same stamp set!)

Hello everybody!

Today I was trying to get ready for Christmas. I know, it's March. It's ok, I like to be ready in advance. lol I have a whole series on my You Tube channel called Christmas Prep with OHCC and I try to do things throughout the year to prepare for the holidays. That way you feel less stressed the closer the holidays come because you're already prepared! It's a good feeling. If you enjoy videos, I have a semi process video on how I made these cards.

Just click:

I used a Recollections stamp set that I purchased last year for these cards. It's that iconic red pick up that is so trendy right now. I decided to make three holiday cards with it, but then wanted to mix it up a bit and use that same stamp set for cards for spring. Just by changing the colors and the contents of the pick up bed, you can change the look of your card! Easy peasy!

Spring time card by making the truck pink and filling the truck bed with sparkling macaroons!


Have a great day!
