The Greeting Farm: January Release Blog Hop

The JANUARY 2021 RELEASE is now available for purchase in The Greeting Farm Store! First up, we introduced you to MISS ANYA FANNY PACK with 3 different big Anyas carrying fashionable critter fanny packs. Next, we have CAFFEINE CRITTERS... a set featuring 5 coffee loving critters. Our 3rd set called DREAMS DO COME TRUE has Anya and Ian living happily ever after in their castle with a pet frog and unicorn! And finally, we have a brand new stand alone MAGIC CASTLE DIE.

For my card today I picked the Caffeine Critters set.  They are so much fun to color.  I colored the background with Distress Oxide Ink and stamped the branch and coffee from the set. I used the frame windows from Mama Elephant.  Added a few sequins and beads to the background.  

To celebrate this release we are having a short BLOG HOP! One lucky fan will take home all 3 clear stamps sets!

The Greeting Farm: January Release Day 4: Magic Castle Die

 Hello! 

Welcome back for Day 4 of  The Greeting Farm  January Previews.  I hope you have been enjoying all the new goodies!!  We have some fabulous sets this month!  This month we are introducing 3 new clear stamps, along with a new Die. We will have our Blog Hop on the 15th where 1 lucky person will take home the stamps and die set we feature this week!


Today we are introducing the amazing Magical Castle Die!  It is such a perfect companion to yesterday's fairytale set!  It was so much fun to put together.  There is a video tutorial on the blog on how to put it together.   


For my card I paired the Castle Die with the Unicorn and sentiment from Dreams Do Come True set.  Card measures 5 1/2 x 4 1/4.  I stenciled the background with a hill stancil from Clearly Besotted, the grass from Lawn Fawn grass stencil as well as the sky stencil.  I used Distree Oxide ink Tumbled Glass and Broken China for the sky and Mowed LAwn and Twisted Citron for the grass.   

The Unicorn was colored with Copics and I glittered the pink mane. Both castle and unicorn were  Popped with 3M foam tape. I used glossy accents on the castle's windows. 

Thanks for stopping by! Hugs

The Greeting Farm: January Release Day 3: Dreams Do Come True

 Hi Crafty Friends! 

Welcome back for Day 3 of  The Greeting Farm  January Previews.   We have some fabulous sets this month!  This month we are introducing 3 new clear stamps, along with a new Die. We will have our Blog Hop on the 15th where 1 lucky person will take home the stamps and die set we feature this week!

Today we are introducing a magical set Dreams Do Come True! Love this fairytale set with so many wonderful images and 2 beautiful sentiments.  Endless possibilities!



For my card I stamped the castle 1st, on a 80lb white Nenah cardstock. I masked the castle and stenciled the grass hills (Clearly Besotted Stencil) with Distress Oxide Ink Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron and, also stenciled the clouds (Lawn Fawn Cloud Stencil) with Distress Oxide Inks Tumled Glass and Broken China.  With some of the same ink and water I splattered drops with a paint brush and let it dry.   I removed the mask and colored the castle and all the images with Copic Markers.



 I die cut the characters with my Scan & Cut, Popped them with 3M Foam tap, and stamped the sentiment in black.  At the end I added a stitched frame from Lawn Fawn.  Love how it turned out.  

Make sure you visit the TGF blog to see all the amazing creations from all of our DT!! 

See you tomorrow! Hugs

Game On!!

 Hello TGF Friends!!

Happy New Year and I truly hope it will be a better one for all of us!  I'm so excited as this is my first post as a DT member for The Greeting Farm!!  It is an honor to work with such a talented group of ladies! 


Today I'm sharing a birthday card I made for my daughter's friend.  This has been my go to image for boy's cards. Nowadays all the kids are gamers. I love this set!    It is part of the Gamer Couple stamp set.   


Card measures 5 1/2 x 4 1/4".   Image was colored with Copic markers (color combo below) and fussy cut.  I used foam adhesive to pop the image. I used patterned paper from Simple Stories So Rad paper pad.  I stamped the sentiment Level Up and some of the little images directly into the patterned paper.  The game control was fussy cut from the same paper pad and popped it with foam adhesive.   I distressed the edges of the papers and added some glossy dots accents on one of the corner of the card. 


Thanks for stopping by!! 

Hugs E

Exciting News! The Greeting Farm DT

 Hi !

I'm so excited to be part of the new 2021 Design Team for The Greeting Farm!! I've loved their stamps for so many years, and now to be part of the team is a dream come true and, an honor!! 

I'm so ready to share all the new goodies for the new year!! 

I always love to share cards I make with their stamps. Last month I participated on the Daily Marker Daily Coloring Challenge. I colored lots of The Greeting Farm images and they are ready for some cards :)

To start today I'm sharing a Christmas card I made with the darling older set Peace On Earth. It is not in the store but I believe it can be requested for the Farmers Market.  



I inked the background with Distress Oxide inks; stenciled the stars with a glimmer paste. Loved how it turned out!  Images were colored with Copic Markers and fussy cut.  I popped them with 3M adhesive foam.  

Tahnk you for stopping by!
