The Greeting Farm Stamp Feature: Oh Boys

Happy Thursday everyone! The Greeting Farm introduced 3 NEW Stamp Sets in the Store on October 15th along with their short BLOG HOP! Come play along as the winner gets to take home all 3 sets!!

This cute set called OH BOYS features 8 boy characters, and is a must have for your collection! There are so many ways to recreate friendships using this set, along with the endless customized birthday cards you can make. I mean seriously, could their hairstyles and outfits be any more stylish?!

 

I decided to create an outdoor scene using three of the boys. The background was created using ZIG markers on watercolor paper. It's so easy!! I just scribbled some of the marker on the watercolor paper and then used a wet paintbrush to create the sky and grassy area.


I stamped the boys on X-press It Blending Card and colored them with Copic Markers. I then cut them out using the coordinating Outline dies. I raised them on pop-dots for added dimension.


 The entire release is available in The Greeting Farm Store for purchase now. Don't forget, there are still a few more hours to join in the BLOG HOP for a chance to win the entire release!

Hugs,
Rosie

TGIF everyone! I hope you're enjoying this week's Stamp Features of September's new Release from The Greeting Farm. The sets are perfect for Halloween, Christmas, and my Pumpkin Spice Latte loving friends!
 
Today, I'm showcasing this beautiful girl called SMILE ANYA. I love her perfectly wavy hair and cute flower hair clip. She's great for so many different occasions.

Smile Anya - Clear

 I used some adorable papers from Echo Park's Beautiful Life 12x12 Paper Pad. The large flowers and butterflies are stickers in the pack. I just backed them with cardstock and cut them out. The flowers are raised on pop-dots. The butterflies were just glued down the center so their wings lift off the card.

C.C. Designs: BAT & SPIDER

Happy hump day! C.C. Designs had an awesome, spooktacular release for September, and this one was a big one! There are 18 products total: 8 new stamps sets with 8 outline dies, along with 2 stand alone die sets. And the theme this month is: HALLOWEEN!
 
Today, I'm showcasing the Bat & Spider Clear Stamp Set with the coordinating Outline Dies. I also used the blood border die and the spiders from the new Halloween Die Set. The spider web and bats were all heat-embossed with Nuvo White Embossing Powder. I then took a white gel pen and filled in the whites of their eyes. Next, I die cut the spiders that are along the bottom of the card and the spider on the middle spider web from black cardstock, and added eyes and outlines using a white gel pen.

 
The spider web was embossed directly onto the card base. The bats were embossed on separate black cardstock, cut out using the outline dies, and raised on the card using pop-dots. The spiders and sentiment are also raised on pop-dots.

 
This entire release has been a lot of fun and can really be used for a lot of different occasions other than Halloween! We hope to see you creating and sharing with us on the C.C. Designs Customer Facebook Page.

The Greeting Farm Stamp Feature: COZY WITH YOU

Happy Monday everyone! The Greeting Farm had another AWESOME release with 4 amazing stamp sets. I'll be here for the next four days featuring each one! These are available for purchase now, but don't forget to play along in the BLOG HOP for a chance to win the entire release!

Today's set called Cozy With You will definitely give you warm, toasty feelings, and it's the perfect set for all those Christmas cards!
 
 

I decided to create an Easel Card today so I could feature the characters along with several elements all on one card.


The cute paper is from Echo Park A Perfect Christmas 6x6 Paper Pad. I stamped the sentiment and then used C.C. Designs Circle and Scalloped Circle Dies to cut it out and frame it. Next, I added glittery enamel dots around it, and topped it off with a bow (of course, haha).


I found a holiday plate clipart online, printed it, and cut it out to lay the gingerbread and Christmas tree cookies inside for the bottom part of the easel card. They were a lot of fun to color! I also added glittery enamel dots to the cookies.


The sentiment, characters, plate, along with some of the cookies are raised on foam dots for added dimension.


I hope you are enjoying this release! I'm a huge TGF fan so I always love every stamp they put out! This one is really versatile and will make fabulous Christmas cards. Be sure to head over to The Greeting Farm Store to grab your faves!
