Farm Fresh Friday at The Greeting Farm

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  Today it's time for another Farm Fresh Friday challenge at The Greeting Farm.  Joni challenged us to a color challenge.  I loved the combo so much that I made two cards. 
For my first card I used an older (and retired) stamp, Sassy Suzi.  I colored her with copics and added some stickles to the "fur" trim on her coat.  Her shirt and shoes are colored with a silver metallic pen.  I added some rhinestones to the centers of the snowflakes on the border and to bring in a little more silver I used some silver cording.  
For this card I used Holiday Anya 3  and the digital image of Beanie Ian (which I had printed out before the rubber stamp <here> was available).  Don't they look cute together!?!  They are both colored with copics.  I added some white polka dots to Anya's scarf and some stickles to her hand warmer.  I also added some silver "pearls" to her boots and some silver to the star in her hair.  For the puffs on the end of Ian's hat I used some white liquid applique and colored it with a copic after I heated it up. This background paper was perfect for the challenge.  I cut out two of the glittered snowflakes from the leftover piece of this background paper and added them to the top of the card and for a little more silver I colored the edge of the sentiment with a silver metallic pen and added some silver "pearls".  

And here is the color combo in case you haven't guessed....pale blue, silver and white.

Yee-Haw it's Tuesday!

Happy Tuesday!   While going through my paper cabinet, I came across this unopened pack of paper and knew that the You're Wanted stamp set would be absolutely perfect for it it. 

I ended up paper piecing everything except her hair and skin (which was colored with copics), and even put part of her hat on dimensionals.  I added some stickles to the heart on her hat.  It's been a long time since I have used my sewing machine so I pulled it out, threaded up a bobbin and sewed a border on the paper panels and also sewed the lace onto the card.    
The embellishment that I made is really easy!  Just take some lace, accordion fold it and stitch some thread through all the layers.  Pull the thread so the lace forms a circle and then sew it shut.  I then put some bakers twine through a button, tied it in a bow and hot glued it to the center of the lace circle.

Thanks for stopping by and have a fantastic day!

Release Day at The Greeting Farm

SWEET NOVEMBER!  It's Release Day!

Hi all!  We have JUST the cure for your trick-or-treating hangover today at The Greeting Farm!  It's November 1st and the gorgeous images you've seen for the past few days are now available in the TGF STORE!

We are happy to be adding My Heart, Frou Frou Sweet, and the adorable Oliver/Amelia Valentine to our line of lovable, versatile TGF characters.

For my card I chose the new Oliver and Amelia Valentine set.  I colored Oliver with copics and put him on a heart background which I added a few of the heart cutouts from the border punch to.  A bit of ribbon and some pearls and it was done.  I love the sentiments in this set, but I think this is my favorite....every night when I tuck the kids in I say "I Love You Always and Forever", so this one will definitely get a lot of use!

Today as always, there's a chance to WIN all the above!  Be sure to check out the TGF BLOG too, not only for our hop, but to see who's "ALTER EGO" won the contest!  We're excited and can't wait to get started, so just head on over and let the fun begin! 

Thanks for visiting and have a great day!  :)
