The Greeting Farm – October Release Blog Hop

It’s the 15th, and the OCTOBER RELEASE is now available for purchase in The Greeting Farm Store! Our first set, features the beautiful HOLIDAY ANYA 7 with a gingerbread man cookie and the sentiment Oh Snap. The 2nd set called LITTLE ELVES has an entire crew of worker elves getting all the toys ready in Santa’s workshop. Next, we have THE MORE THE MERRIER with the cutest woodland animals celebrating the holidays in style. Lastly, we introduced two new large word dies: SANTA BABY and MERRY CHRISTMAS.

For my card today, I coloured up our image in my copic markers. I have been ignoring my poor markers lately and am so happy I pulled them out again. I love how she came out, once she was coloured I did add some black coloured pencil to help with a little more depth on the image.

Fussy cut her out and added her to the patterned paper, and star stenciled panel. A small sentiment and this card was complete!

To celebrate we are having a short BLOG HOP, where one lucky fan will take home the entire release! You have until OCTOBER 18th at 12pm CST/1pm EST to leave your comments on each Designer’s Blog and The Greeting Farm Blog (letting us know you completed the hop).

The Greeting Farm – October Previews Day 4

Hey everyone! Welcome to the final day of Previews for The Greeting Farm!

Today we are sharing a couple of dies with you all! I chose to use the Santa Baby die, and pair it with the Simon Says Stamp Stamptember set that I didn’t get a chance to use, because it got to me after it was released.

So I stamped and masked a little holiday scene colouring it up with my copic markers. I then die cut the sentiment from the top, and also from a piece of craft foam to create the sentiment in white but with it being lifted it is still able to be easily seen, the name for this style of card escapes me. But I love it!

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!

Supplies:
Simon Says Stamp Ornamental Wreath
Simon Says Stamp Delicate Flowers
Faber-Castell Albrecht Durer Watercolor Marker Beige Red
Faber-Castell Albrecht Durer Watercolor Marker Green Gold
Faber-Castell Albrecht Durer Watercolor Marker Permanent Olive Green

The Greeting Farm – October Preview Day 3

Hey all! Welcome back to day 3 of previews for The Greeting Farm! We are nearing the new release!

Today’s set is called The More the Merrier! It is full of the cutest little critters ever!

Let’s talk about this card! I had a fantastic time colouring up the little hedge hog and door! and for some reason while I had them all masked out I decided it was a door to no where? Notice the blue sky and green grounding. But, I was so happy with how it looked all put together that I did not want to change it and try and make it look like the inside or outside of a house. So I left it the way it was. I am really happy with how it turned out.

I have been doing so much painting with my watercolours lately, that it was so much fun to pull out my colored pencils and colour this one up!

The Greeting Farm – October Preview Day 2

Hey all! Welcome to day 2 of previews for The Greeting Farm!

I love making cards, but one of my favorite ways to keep myself, somewhat, organized is creating lists. This set lets you keep all the holiday things simple and organized. Of course, it will also work awesome on cards and your planner!

I know it looks so simple. But once I add in all the rest of the present ideas, and fill the other side with my baking list it is going to be super adorable, aside from my messing printing.

I added a little bit of colour with my Tombow markers to add a pop of colour!
