Twilight Tuesday Bonus Challenge with The Greeting Farm!

Woo Hoo! How exciting is this!?!?
Twilight Tuesday is mingling with The Greeting Farm to celebrate the release of their new Wild Sprouts “Edward” stamp!!!

Who can resist lil' Eddie?!?!
Most of you already know - he is my MOST FAVORITE STAMP in the universe!!! ;)

Craft Portion: Create a piece using the classic Twilight color scheme of Red, Black, White and/or Silver, AND you must use a stamp from The Greeting Farm to play along.

Comment Portion: "So many of us turn to these classic colors for Twilight projects, which are clearly inspired by the covers of the books. However, we’d like to know if you have other favorite colors to use for Twilight projects. Do you have any other interesting colors that you like to use?"

Tell us about it!!! Leave your comment on the Twilight Tuesday bonus challenge post!

Ummm... so, I think that I mentioned that this is my fave stamp ;) EVA!!!
So, I went a bit overboard with my lil' Edward stamp and I have 5 cards to share with you!!! YES! You read that right! 5!!!
hee, hee! I had a lil help from 2 lil mini-designers ;)

Here's my first card... Oh! and keep in mind... Alice designed all of his clothes! hee hee
Isn't he the cutest lil guy in the whole entire world!?
I used Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge #95 for this card...

It's hard trying to keep the cards as masculine as possible! Now that I know how to tie bows {yea!!!}, I really wanted to add it on... and then, I didn't want the flower to be too flowery, lol, so I altered it a bit by cutting the petals down...
"Bite Me" Card Details:
Paper(s): Bazzill; Making Memories Starry DP; misc. stripe DP.
Stamp(s): The Greeting Farm's "Edward" Stamp; Artful INKables "Bite Me" Sentiment.
Ink(s): Memento Tuxedo Black Ink; Copics; Atyou Spica Glitter Markers; Stampin Up Markers.
Accessories: Altered Prima Flowers; Dew Drop; Making Memories "Black Tie" Silver Ribbon.
On each card, you might notice that lil' Edward goes through some skin and hair changes! I was trying to figure out which colors work best for the ultimate "Edward look-a-like"!
Here's my 2nd card...
I made up my own sketch for this card :) I've never done that before!
This card is my 5yo's fave one!
He thinks that this is the one that looks the most vamp-y!
Vampy Card Details:
Paper(s): Bazzill; Misc. DP.
Stamp(s): The Greeting Farm's "Edward" Stamp
Ink(s): Memento Tuxedo Black Ink; Copics; Atyou Spica Glitter Markers; Stampin Up Markers.
Accessories: Making Memories Brads; Misc. Ribbon.
... and here's my 3rd card!
Hmmm, looking at him now... we don't think he looks so Edward-like... his hair is too light...
Is that you, Jasper??? ;)
"Jasper-y" Card Details:
BasicGrey; Bazzill.
Stamp(s): The Greeting Farm's "Edward" Stamp; Artful INKables Sentiment Stamp.
Ink(s): Memento Tuxedo Black Ink; Copics; Atyou Spica Glitter Markers; Stampin Up Markers.
Accessories: Misc. brads and flowers; Fiskar Lace Corner Punch.
So, which card do you think looks like Edward the most???

Several members of the Twilight Tuesday DT will be playing along,
Please visit their blogs to see their creations!

Now, I would like to introduce to you to my 2 mini-designers... Nicky and Matt :)
Here's Nicky's card!
Nicky has seen the beginning of the movie up to the part where Eggward "flips" the apple scene!
"Ma! That is the coolest thing ever!!!"
Everytime he sees an apple - he kicks it across the room!
Being 5 1/2 years old, he is very observant!
See closely, lil Eggward is wearing the same clothes as Eggward-doll AND see Apple DP AND the buttons represent Eggwards fave colors!!!
Here's Matt's card!
Being that he just turned 3, he has never seen the movie,
but he wanted to make a card too since Big Bro had so much fun creating his ;)
All Matt really wanted to do was hold Eggward-doll, LOL!
... but then he finally decided and said...

"Eggward needs that flower paper, Mommy! It will make him happy!"

Who can argue with that??? LOL!

Thanks for stopping by today!
Happy Wednesday :)

Oh, how fun is this whole post? All of your Edwards are awesome -- I can't even choose. I also made his hair a little light on my card as well. I LOVE that the boys played along, and the fact that you posed Pocket Edward with their cards totally cracks me up! Awesome job on the whole thing - we have you to thank for the entire challenge!
