Holiday Anya

 Hello TGF friends! 

 After all this month Christmas themed release at The Greeting Farm I decided to continue this theme.   I just love all the Holiday Anya's and for my project today I used the stylish Holiday Anya 6.  Who doesn't love a good cup of hot chocolate?  She totally brings in the warmth and joy of the season. 

The image was colored with Copic markers and die cut with my Brother Scan & Cut. She was popped with foam adhesive.   The background was slightly stenciled with a coffee stain stencil from Tim Holtz and I added some Christams floral patterned paper.   The sentiment is from TGF called Lettered (currently sold out).   I finished the card with some glossy enamel drops.

LAwn Fawn: Bubbles of Joy Challenge 108


I created a card to submit to Lawn Fawn Challenge # 108 inspiration photo.   I used the cute Bubbles of Joy set.  I just love all the little mice!!

I started by ink blending the background with Distress Ink Oxides (Cracked Pistachio, Chipped Saphire and Savage patina) on Rangers Distress White Heavystock.  I spritzed some water and heat dried.  I splattered some of Lawn Fawn's Liquid Stardust.  After I used Lawn's Fawn Bubble stencil and the same Distress ink and added some of the bubbles onto the background. All papers were cut with Lawn's Fawn Stitched Rectangle dies.   All images were colored with Copic markers and die cut.  I popped most of them with foam adhesive.  The sentiment were stamped and die cut with the simple sentiment strips.

The Greeting FArm: September Release Blog Hop


The SEPTEMBER 2021 RELEASE is now available for purchase in The Greeting Farm Store! This month we introduced 3 new sets. Our first stamp set called MEOWY CHRISTMAS featured adorable kitties snacking on chocolate chip cookies and hot chocolate while decorating their Christmas tree. Next, we introduced you to the cutest Gingerbread family in a set called GINGERBREAD XMAS. Lastly, we gave you the oh-so-stylish HOLIDAY ANYA 9 who is ready to attend an upcoming Christmas party.

For this card I used a window frame and added a little scene to each window by inking each window with Distress Oxide inks.  Added the sentiment in one of the windows.  All images colored with Copic markers and fussy cut.  Added some foam adhesive to some of the images to make them pop. Finished with some enamel dots. 

I also made a little gift card holder with one of the Kitties from Meowy Christmas set.  I just love this set! The images are little and perfect for smaller projects.
