I Am Roses + Conie Fong's Snowman Juggling Baubles

Happy Thursday everyone! Today, I'm featuring a Christmas card using the beautiful flowers from I Am Roses with Conie Fong's Snowman Juggling Baubles. I think this snowman is so cute and adorable, and of course perfect for those upcoming Christmas cards. And to make it even better, I added I Am Roses Flowers in the corner.

The Greeting Farm Stamp Feature: ALL OF US

Happy Tuesday everyone! The Greeting Farm introduced 3 NEW Stamp Sets in the Store on November 15th, and they are awesome once again! Today, I'm featuring this adorable collection of animal friends called ALL OF US! It also has a coordinating die set HERE.
I decided to make it look like the animals were popping out of boxes. I found a Fiskars stamp set with different animals and a hot air balloon. I used the animal bodies from that set so I could get the paws hanging over the box. The presents were made using Elizabeth Craft Designs Gifts Die. I just trimmed the bottom of the presents so they would fit in the squares.

The frame with the square cut-outs was made using the C.C. Designs Trio Collage Die. I just cut out two of them and glued them together.

 I hope my U.S. friends have a Happy Thanksgiving! You can see more inspiration on The Greeting Farm Blog from my fellow DT Sisters!
Have an awesome week!

The Greeting Farm Stamp Feature: POTTED PLANTS

Happy Monday everyone! The Greeting Farm introduced 3 NEW Stamp Sets in the Store on November 15th, and they are awesome once again! Today, I'm featuring this adorable succulent set called POTTED PLANTS with its coordinating DIE SET.

I found some cute cacti paper in a pad from The Paper Studio called Oh Elle Elle. I then decided I wanted to stamp the sentiment in a long, straight line, and have some plants on a wood ledge. To stamp the sentiment in a straight line I covered parts with a post-it note and just inked up the words I wanted to stamp.
I raised the wood ledge and potted plants on foam dots for added dimension. I also added foam behind the entire stamped panel to raise it off the background cacti paper. 

You can see more inspiration on The Greeting Farm Blog from my fellow DT Sisters!

Have an awesome week!

The Greeting Farm Stamp Feature: ANGELS REJOICE

Happy Friday everyone! The Greeting Farm introduced 3 NEW Stamp Sets in the Store on November 15th along with their short BLOG HOP! Come play along for a chance at winner the entire release!
Today, I'm featuring ANGELS REJOICE. These angels are so sweet and adorable! This set also has coordinating dies HERE. On the little stamps, I recommend purchasing the coordinating dies because it makes it so much easier to cut them out.

I recently came across a tutorial on a Rain Shaker Card by Laura Dovalo. It's pretty incredible so I gave it go with this Angel card. The hubby thought it was so cool!

When you shake the card the beads slide up and down. I will definitely be trying this card again. It was so much fun to make!

You can see this card in action on The Greeting Farm Fan Page.

Don't forget to head over to The Greeting Farm Blog to see more inspiration from my fellow DT Sisters!

Have an awesome weekend!
