The Greeting Farm's "Lovey Bean" Sneak Peek

So, I have been sitting on a secret for a few weeks now.....which is torture!  
I hate having to keep exciting news quiet!  

Today I can finally share that I have been invited to be part of the Greeting Farm's Premiere Guest Design Team to help them kick off their very first release of 2013!  I was thrilled when Jessica Diedrich emailed to invite me!  

The Greeting Farm is releasing FIVE new stamp sets on January 1st to kick off the new year!  Today I have the honor of giving you a sneak peek of the adorable "Lovey Bean" with a couple of cards I created with this new stamp set.  

Here's my first card:

Her hair was so much fun to color.....and so was her cute little round belly!  I colored her with copics and fussy cut her out so that I could layer her over some PP with text on it.  I paired some Bazzill Card Shoppe wax lips  and licorice twist CS with some PP from the Fancy Pants Designs Love Note 6x6 paper pad.  I added some black grosgrain ribbon.  I used a SU heart punch to cut out the heart, stamped the sentiment, and then went over the sentiment with a black glaze pen.  I added some opal glitter glue to her wings.  

skin - E11, E21, E00, E000
cheeks - R20, R30
hair - C9, C7, C5, C3
clothing and flowers - R59, R29, R24, R05, YR18, YR16

And here is my second card:


This time I stepped away from the scissors.  No fussy cutting this time so that I can show you the entire image.  I colored Lovey Bean up with copics and cut her out using the MFT Die-Namics circle STAX sets 1 and 2. I paired some Bazzill Card Shoppe icy mint and black licorice CS with some PP from the My Mind's Eye "Love Me" 6x6 paper pad.  I added some black vintage seam binding and some opal glitter glue to her wings and the centers of the flowers.  .  

skin - E11, E21, E00, E000
cheeks - R20, R30
hair - E19, E18, E08, E02
flowers and hearts - R85, R83, R81
clothing - B02, B00, B000

  2. Hi Kim.
    I stayed up just so that I could see what stamp was next on this week's previews, and I have to say that I am very happy that I did. :O) I think your Lovey Bean is just adorable! I really love how you have colored her hair in both your cards and I really love that you list what you did and what you used to make them both. So often you run across a card that you really think is fantastic, but you have no idea what the person did or used to get that look. I can see why Jess asked you to be a part of the premiere DT. You are very talented and I am really enjoying seeing all your cards on your blog. I know how hard it is to keep that secret and I have to give you a hugh CONGRATULATIONS! Hope your Christmas was a Merry one. Hugs, Lisa G
