A fairy happy day...

Hello again!

I've got another card to share from last week's TGF release and it is going back to the Fairy Happy set. There is so much you can do with these tiny fairies but this little one with her back turned really caught my eye and I knew that she could carry a whole card design all on her own. So I perched her atop the sentiment that is included in the Fairy Happy set and masked a large circle behind her before inking the sky to create that large moon shining down. Next I grabbed the mushrooms from the Little Fairies set to help ground the sentiment and added strong shadows to sell the idea of moonlight streaming past them. I love the quiet and still mood that I ended up with. :)

Later gators!

Good morning!

I've got a quick card to share before rushing out the door this morning. I made this one for the Greeting Farm release last week and it features another one of the fun bunnies from the Enjoy set. As soon as I got the set this little gal looked like she was hopping along to me so I grabbed the Magical Friends set that has the hopping dots in it and added the motion to this simple scene. I also masked in that piece of carrot cake that she is carrying, I'm not quite sure if she is taking it to share with someone special or if she is running away to keep it all to herself. Either way she looks quite pleased with herself, LOL! ;)

Ok folks, gotta run... I'll talk at'cha later!

Hang in there...


Once again it is my turn to share some inspiration on the 7 Kids Customers Create Facebook page. This week I chose to ink up another cutie from Dreamerland Crafts called, Swinging Tire Fun. There isn't much that says nice weather has returned more than spending time swinging under a shady tree. This stamp was absolutely screaming for a scene considering the alternative would have left her swing just floating in space. It was a great excuse to practice my trees 'cause I still haven't mastered those quite yet. While I was coloring her up I had no idea what the sentiment would be and it wasn't until I had the scene complete that I was flipping through my sentiment binder and I came across the perfect saying. I love how it turns this sweet Swinging Tire Fun girl into an encouraging ambassador of happiness. :)

Ok then, there is still a week left to create something for our "anything goes" themed challenge and as always there is a $20 gift certificate to the 7 Kids store up for grabs. There is also a special St. Paddy's Day sale going on now and all you have to do is type in LUCKYME at check out for 27% off your entire purchase!

A fairy nice day...

It’s the 15th, and that means the new MARCH Stamps are NOW available for purchase in The Greeting Farm Store. This month we took you to the land of fairies with Fairy Happy and Fairy Garden. And who could pass up the cute, adorable bunnies from the Enjoy set. Then of course, you gotta be able to rock out from time-to-time with the fabulous Rockstar Anya 2. All of the new stamps are perfect for your cards, journals/planners, gift packages, and scrapbook layouts. 

To celebrate we are having a BLOG HOP, where one lucky fan will take home all 4 sets!! Pretty awesome! Be sure to leave a comment on each designer’s blog, and then head back to The Greeting Farm Blog to let us know you completed the hop.

You have until Sunday, March 18th at 12pm CST to leave your comments.
We will announce the random winner next week.

 TGF Design Team:








Don’t forget you must leave a comment on each Designer's Blog to be eligible for the prize drawing. It's a short hop so it's definitely worth playing along! And if you can't wait for the hop to be over, you can purchase these stamps now along with their coordinating dies HERE.
We will have more cards featuring the new stamps from our DT Leaders starting the 16th so be sure to stop back by to see more inspiration.

Hi there and thanks for joining us on the hop. For my card today I really wanted to play with these tiny fairies from the Fairy Happy and Fairy Garden sets once more. This time around I envisioned them frolicking among a blooming flower garden so I grabbed the His Love and In Christ I Am stamp sets because the florals in both of those are just fantastic. It took some time masking in all those fairies but in the end it was so worth it. As I started adding color to the fairies and the flowers the card really came to life and turned out even better than I had imagined it. Now I want to plant some wildflowers in my yard in hopes that I might find a little magic added to my daily life as well. ;)

Thanks for dropping by and have fun hopping!

You rock...

Are you ready to rock?!

Here we are at the third and final day of March previews for The Greeting Farm and this super star is ready to steal the show. It's always exciting to have a new Anya join the TGF family and Rockstar Anya 2 is going to knock your socks off! I mean seriously, this girl has attitude and confidence to spare. Right away I knew that I wanted my card to have a lot of energy and bright, happy colors. The best way I could think to do that was grab this fun strobe stencil and sponge on some neon ink behind her, which really put this Rockstar in the spot light! I tried to make her outfit look like it is made of sparkly gold sequins and I'm pretty pleased with the end result. I also used the same technique when I colored in the sentiment as well. And of course I had to grab the gold glitter enamel dots to finish off the card because this rocker sparkles and shines!  

Alrighty, you know what to do...  head on over to the TGF blog for even more Rockstar Anya 2 fabness from the Farmers. And don't forget that the entire release will be available for purchase on the 15th along with a blog hop for a chance to win all four new stamp sets!  :)

Look what's sprouting up...

Hello, hello!

Are you ready for day two of the March Greeting Farm release previews? Today we have another small clear set to share called, Enjoy. These four happy bunnies are arriving just in time for Easter but they are so much more than just holiday stamps. My card today features the two bunnies who are holding some yummy veggies and stamped them in Desert Sand ink for some no-line coloring to create a cheery garden scene. Taking my cues from the carrot and leaf of lettuce I used my Copics to sketch in not just the veg but the fence, flowers and sky behind them as well. These cuties may look innocent enough but they love raiding the farmer's garden. ;)

There is plenty more Enjoy inspirational cuteness to be had over on the TGF blog. I promise you won't want to miss all of the fabulous creations my fellow Farmers have made!

A magical bday...

Hello there!

Today is day 1 of the March stamp release from The Greeting Farm... woot, woot! We have four fantastic clear sets coming out this month and I just gotta say... they are ah-mazing! Take a peek at the first two coordinating sets that we are previewing, Fairy Happy and Fairy Garden, both of which will be available for purchase on the 15th. I have officially fallen head over heels for these tiny little fairies and their terra cotta pot home. I seriously couldn't stop making cards with them they are SO much fun. The Fairy Garden set comes with one tiny fairy and I stamped her down in the bottom right corner, then I added a bunch of her friends from the Fairy Happy set to really get this magical party started. I even grabbed an old bottle of Stickles to add a sprinkling of fairy dust below each fairy and it makes the card sparkle nicely when you see it in person.   :)

Now be sure to head on over to the TGF blog to see the fairy magical cards from my fellow Farmers using the new Fairy Happy and Fairy Garden sets and I shall see you back here tomorrow with more sneak peek fun!
