The Greeting Farm Stamp Feature Day 2: GINGERBREAD CHRISTMAS

Happy Friday everyone! We are on Day 2 of Stamp Features for the SEPTEMBER 2021 RELEASE at The Greeting Farm. This month TGF introduced 3 new stamp sets! Claudette, Joni and I are on The Greeting Farm Blog showcasing the new release. Don't forget TGF has a Blog Hop going on right now where 1 person will win the entire release.

Gingerbread is all the rage around the holidays so what's better than a gingerbread man? Well, a gingerbread family of course! This next set called GINGERBREAD CHRISTMAS features 4 gingerbread characters, a mini gingerbread house, several accessory stamps, along with two sentiments.

 
One of my favorite dies is the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Background Portrait. It's my go-to for creating an outside snowy scene.

I Am Roses September 2021 Challenge: ANYTHING GOES!

 It's The 15th of the month, and we are back with a brand new I Am Roses ANYTHING GOES Challenge! Come play along for a chance at 1 of the 4 prizes up for grabs!

I have been slowly creating some Halloween decor for around the house. I don't go all out like I used since my boy has grown up, but a little bit here and there helps me get into the decorating spirit. Today, I created a canvas wall hanging using an image from one of my favorite artists, Krista Smith. This digi is called Witchkeys. It's an older image, and I don't see it in her Etsy Store. She does have this adorable trio in the store called Witches.
 

I painted the canvas black on all sides and along the front edges. I then added decorative paper and rounded the corners. I colored the witches with Copic markers, and added the gorgeous IAR flowers along the edges. To finish it off, I added 16mm plaid beads on to some twine, tied knots on the ends, and glued the ends to the back of the canvas.

Jaded Blossom: BOO Banner

 Happy Friday everyone! I'm back with a new Halloween creation featuring some awesome products from Jaded Blossom. I haven't decorated for Halloween in a while since my little boy has grown up on me and become a teenager. When he was little he loved for us to go all out. Fortunately, I have friends I can gift all my Halloween makes to! 

Today, I am showing off this cute BOO Banner I made using the Scallop Caddy Die. I just trimmed the sides and bottom off and used the front panel of the Scallop Caddy to create the banner shape. The large chipboard letters for the word BOO came from Hobby Lobby. 


 I colored up the monsters from Monster Munchies and Rawr with Copic Markers and added them to each panel. The paper and little sentiment squares are from Doodlebug Design Ghost Town 6x6 Paper Pad. I purchased the buffalo plaid beads from Amazon.
 


 
Remember, Jaded Blossom has a current ANYTHING GOES Challenge. You have until October 2nd to play along for a chance to win a free stamp set! And, be sure to check out the Jaded Blossom Store for all your stamps and gift giving supplies. They have various Cutting Dies to make party favors along with Favor Bags and Boxes.

TLC Designs Shop: HAPPY FALL Y'ALL!

 Happy Sunday friends! I'm back today with a card featuring products from TLC Designs Shop. On the last Sunday of every month I'll be showcasing stamps/digis, along with the awesome dies carried in the store.

Today, I used this cute and adorable koala from a digi set called FESTIVE FRIENDS. Can you tell he's having the time of his life in that big pile of leaves?! 
 

 The leaves are part of the Festive Friends Digi Set. To create the paper layers for this happy fall card, I used the new Zinnia Slimline Dies. 

 
I added the sentiment and 3 falling leaves to MS Word and printed it on Copic Xpress It Blending Card. I then cut that panel out using the smaller landscape die. The koala and pile of leaves were printed separately, colored with Copics and then fussy cut. I glued the pile of leaves to the bottom of the card and placed the koala on an action wobble!! When you flick him, he wobbles like he's jumping.....SO FUN!!
 
COPICS:
Koala Ears: R01, R20, R21
Koala Nose: C3, C5, C8, C10
Koala Fur: N0, N2, N4
Koala Stomach and Tail: C1
Leaves: G46, R39,  YR09, YR23, Y15, E44
Sky: Blue China Distress Oxide Ink and Cloud Stencil

This is a very supportive community, and we can't wait to see your creations using TLC Designs products. To get you started there are even some FREEBIES.

Jaded Blossom: BOO!

 Happy Friday everyone! I'm back today with a card featuring some awesome products from Jaded Blossom. I'm in a Halloween mood so I decided to go that route for this spooky card. Be sure to scroll to the last picture to see the surprise this card holds!

To create the faces background panel, I rubbed Ink on 3 embossing ink over the Pumpkin Face Stencil onto black cardstock. Then I sprinkled both green and yellow embossing powder over the black cardstock and heat embossed it. 


The word "boo" was created using the Balloon Letters Die Outlines. I just cut off the little balloon tab at the bottom of the die-cut letters. I also used a small circle die to cut out the inside of the letters.


And now for the hidden surprise!! I cut the boo letters from glow-in-the-dark sticker paper!! It's soooooooo cool!!


Remember, Jaded Blossom has a current "ANIMAL" challenge going on. You have until September 4th to play along in the AUGUST Challenge for a chance to win a free stamp set! And, be sure to check out the Jaded Blossom Store for all your stamps and gift giving supplies. They have various Cutting Dies to make party favors along with Favor Bags and Boxes.

The Greeting Farm Digi Stamp Feature: NURSERY

Happy Thursday everyone! Today, we have a Digital Stamp Feature for The Greeting Farm showcasing the new digi released on August 1st called NURSERY. It has all the elements to create the cutest nursery scene, but you can also use the digi stamps individually to create other types of cards for various occasions. 


I layered the alphabet blocks and baby bottles in MS Word and tilted them at different angles to create the patterned paper at the top of my card. I printed the giraffe and sentiment on Copic paper and colored it with Copic markers.

 Happy Thursday everyone! We are on Day 3 of Stamp Features for the AUGUST 2021 RELEASE at The Greeting Farm. This month TGF introduced 3 new stamp sets! Claudette, Joni and I are on The Greeting Farm Blog showcasing the new release.

I can always use more celebratory and birthday stamps so this next set called MISS ANYA BIRTHDAY is the perfect addition to my collection. To top it off, these girls are stunning! 


I used paper in my stash. The doily started off as white, but I took RV10 Copic Marker and added color to it. I used all the small word stamps in the set to create the sentiment. The sentiment and Miss Anya are raised on foam tape.

The Greeting Farm Stamp Feature: DONUT WORRY

 Happy Wednesday everyone! We are on Day 2 of Stamp Features for the AUGUST 2021 RELEASE at The Greeting Farm. This month TGF introduced 3 new stamp sets! Claudette, Joni and I are on The Greeting Farm Blog showcasing the new release.

I LOVE donuts so this next set called DONUT WORRY is one of my favorites from this release! My favorite donut is called a cronut and it's a cross between a croissant and donut and let me tell you it's AMAZING! One of the donut shops around here will sometimes top it with a maple glaze and pieces of bacon.....divine, I'm telling ya.   


If you follow me then you know I like to take smaller stamps from a set and make my own patterned paper. I used the stack of donuts and sprinkles to create the paper at the top of the card. The other great thing about this set is it comes with a large sentiment that can go inside the card.

 Happy Tuesday everyone! We are on Day 1 of Stamp Features for the AUGUST 2021 RELEASE at The Greeting Farm. This month TGF introduced 3 new stamp sets! Claudette, Joni and I will be on The Greeting Farm Blog showcasing the new release over the next few days.

Today's set called HUGS & HISSES features 3 grumpy cats and they are hilarious! I'm more of a dog person, but these cats are LIFE! They make me laugh!!  


I knew when I saw this set that I wanted to turn the cat at the top of my card upside down like he was sneaking to try and get the cupcake. When I look at this card, it cracks me up.
