Today’s card was created using a stamp set I fell in love with instantly – The Greeting Farm Wild Sprouts Wild Child. SO cute, and so much fun to colour. I’ll be colouring her again soon, as I really want to colour her outfit to look like a panda. On this card I went for the reverse as I wanted to colour her hood in black. Other completely unrealistic colour combinations would be good too – why not have fun and go wild? 😉
As promised, I’m getting back to my colouring and card-making now that all the new furniture has been delivered and organised. I’ll give you a little tour of my new office/craft space soon, just need a couple of little extras to get it fully organised *cough* Ikea trolley I’ve been admiring for months *cough*.
For now, here’s one I DIDN’T create earlier! The second card to be completed in the new house. Whoo! Several others were completed over the weekend, and I’ll be sharing them in due course.
I’ve been on a bit of a The Greeting Farm (TGF) stamping/colouring binge. They were one of my first character stamp loves, and I have been making some time to play with them because they just make me happy.
We are now settling in to the new house quite nicely. There are still bits and pieces left to sort out, but the essentials are all set up, so I’m getting back to “normal” 😉
Our niece has the honour of being the recipient of the very first card made in the new house! It was a perfect excuse to play with one of the stamps from the new Magical Beans Kit from The Greeting Farm, which I have been itching to play with since it arrived just before the move.
You can find the Magical Beans kit and other stamps from The Greeting Farm over at my store Quixotic Paperie. I am based in the UK, but ship worldwide! Plus, if you pop over there between now and midnight on Monday 4th August you could enjoy a fantastic 20% off everything!
Here it is! I decided to make a pop up box card because I love making them and my niece was so impressed with the one I made for her Nanny earlier this year (you can also see another one I made HERE). The Magical Beans images lend themselves pretty well to this as they are a little smaller than the standard TGF size.
Cute, isn’t she?! An absolute breeze to colour too. I always have fun colouring TGF characters. She was coloured with Copic Markers and a little pencil on my favourite Make it Colour Blending Card.

I created the papers myself, using a Prima stencil and my favourite Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magicals (Tibetan Poppy Teal, Magnolia Magenta Gold, Glory of the Seas Gold) I also used Luminarte Silks in Ice as a resist to create the star paper. Here’s a close up of some of the gorgeous sparkle:
The dies used for the flourish and leaf elements are Magnolia DooHickey dies. The sentiment is from a Lawn Fawn stamp set.
If you haven’t tried making one yet, you can find instructions on creating a Pop Up Box Card over at Splitcoast Stampers.
I hope you’ve enjoyed dropping by today. I’ll be back again soon with some more crafty fun!
I am thrilled to be joining in with the fun at The Greeting Farm as a guest designer for the March release previews this week. I’ve been a fan of The Greeting Farm since the beginning, so I was excited to join them as a guest this month, and even more excited when I saw the awesome images being released.
This first day of previews is for a new Anya set – Anya Blooms. As you will see, she is utterly gorgeous! I love the larger Anya stamp sets, and I think this one may actually be my favourite so far. She’s just…so…pretty!
I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Make it Colour Blending Card and coloured with ShinHan Touch Twin Markers. The paper I used is actually a magazine freebie I had in my scrap box. I think it is by Raspberry Road. I used a combination of MFT Die-Namics Photo Corners and Dies by SCACD Garden Corners dies to embellish, along with some little gems. I distressed the edges of the papers with an acrylic paint dabber in white, and also did some sewing!
The sentiment is one of the ones that comes in the set – perfect!
What do you think? She definitely has me cheered up and thinking of Spring/Summer!
Pop on over to the The Greeting Farm blog to check out some more samples with this stamp set, and to join in for the chance to WIN one for yourself!

Today I’d like to share a fun card I created for Paul’s birthday earlier this month. Like me, he’s a fan of the Cheeky Cherry range from The Greeting Farm! Really, it was great to have an excuse to ink one of them up – and I have promised myself I will do this more often, as I had SO much fun colouring her.
The stamp I used is from the Naughty or Nice set. Absolutely love this one, very cheeky indeed!
I coloured her with ShinHan Touch Twin Markers on Make it Colour Blending Card (see pic below for marker details). The designer papers are a mixture of My Mind’s Eye Alphabet Soup Boy and Fancy Pants Saint Nick. I created the sentiment on the computer and printed it out.
Here’s the colour map showing the markers used:
That’s it! Paul certainly liked the card, hope you’ve enjoyed checking it out too!
