The Greeting Farm – Mystery Box Release

Happy Monday everyone! This week we have a special release we are showcasing! Twice this year, we released Mystery Boxes. Both of the boxes contained 5 new stamps, along with stickers and enamel pins and a few other extra goodies. We had a lot of amazing feedback, but we also had many who missed out on the special boxes. 

Our awesome customers asked and pleaded for the stamps to be released individually at a later time. Well, we are happy to announce that those pleas were heard, and this month is your chance to grab these exclusive cuties!! All 10 Mystery Box stamps will be released in The Greeting Farm Store at 12am EST on December 15th!!

To celebrate this fabulous release, we are doing something a little different. We are having 5 days of BLOG HOPS and showcasing two stamps on each day. In addition, we will be picking 5 WINNERS total…one from each day of comments!! Each person picked will win the two sets featured on the day they won. All winners will be announced on the December 15th New Release Blog Post so you will know what you won on the day the release goes live.

Comment daily on each DT post linked below and come back to the TGF post letting us know you completed the hop. On Sunday, one winner from each day of comments will be selected to win the two stamp sets featured on that specific day.

Today, we are showcasing HAPPY HATS and CHEEKY TAT! Happy Hats features 9 different character stamps wearing adorable animal hats with 6 word stamps. Cheeky Tat features a tatted girl with a 1950’s feel, along with the perfect sentiment…”Tat’s so Sweet.”

I had a play with my copic markers and Distress Inks for both of my cards today! It was a blast pulling out things I haven’t used for a while!

Altenew Wallpaper Art and Watercolors

Hey everyone! Today I am here with a soft card featuring Altenew Stamps and Watercolors!

I have had these paints in my collection for quite some time now. I have discovered that I have this issue where I am afraid that I will use them up, and then want them. But, I really need to get over it, and use this stuff. So this card was a step in the right direction, to using my stuff!

As for these paints, I really enjoyed using them. They rewet awesome, the mix well. They layer fantastic, which is how I do most of my painting. Saturation was great, color selection is gorgeous. All in all I really love these paints!

As for my card today, I have been doing one layer cards for such a long time now. This is such a step outside of my comfort zone. I really love how this one came together.

I do have a complete process video of this one for you all as well!

Black Watercolor paper?!?!

Hey all! Today I am playing with a new to me paper. Stonehenge Black Aqua paper! I had a blast pairing this with white gouage and floral stamps!

This card was super fun, I really enjoyed spending a couple of hours with a new paper and one tube of paint.

As for the Black Aqua paper, I really like it. It accepted the Gouache and water just as I expected it to, I did go into it considering it a watercolor paper. It is 100% cotton and is 140lbs the big difference is that it is black and not white.

I do have a process video to share with you all as well!

My poor markers, had been so neglected lately. I have been on this watercolor kick! While, I still love my paints, I do need to make the effort to use all of the awesome things that I have in my collection.

Ornamental Wreath – Simon Says Stamp

Hey everyone! Today I am sharing with you a fun new release from Simon Says Stamp called Cheer & Joy!

I had a blast playing with the Ornamental Wreath die and the Faber-Castell Albrecht Durer Watercolor Markers. Being as it is Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada, the colour scheme was ever so perfect!

I love that this die does not cut everything completely out, it’s like stamping with a die! I am super happy with how this clean and simple little card came out!

I do have a complete process video for you all!

Drink Up the Sunshine

Hey everyone! Today I am starting the day off sharing my entry for MFT Card Design Superstar Clean and Simple Genius category.

I started out by colouring the little girl up with my copic markers. Then adding the finishing details with my black coloured pencil. Once she was cut out I created some sweet little waves using Make Waves stencil and distress ink. Embossing the sentiment from the same Drink up the Sunshine stamp set on black cardstock and couple enamel dots finished off this sweet little CAS Card.

The Greeting Farm – September Preview Day 3

Hey everyone! It is day 3 of previews for The Greeting Farm. As always all these sets will be available on the 15th of the month!

Today we have a set called My Care Team. The cool part is you can build a giant little hospital scene of all these fantastic people that help us through some tough times!

I love all these fun characters, I created a long card with a bunch of the characters from this set. This card is 2.5 x 7 inches, inside I stamped the ambulance and the “best care team” sentiment from this same set!
