The Greeting Farm – Preview Day 2

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

Today we have a lovely floral set to share with you all called Grateful For You!

I used this as an opportunity to play with more of my black watercolour paper, and some more opaque watercolours. This has sense lead to me purchasing coloured gouache. I stamped them out with white ink, then painted them up using pink and green from Designs by Rachel Beth handmade paints. I then retraced all my stamped lines with a white Posca pen!

Fussy cutting everything out then adding it to a white card pannel. A little doodling and some sequins and this card is complete!

Hope to see you tomorrow for day 3!

The Greeting Farm – Preview Day 1

Hey all! It is time to kick off previews for the November release from The Greeting Farm!

Starting things off is a new set of Miss Anya’s, this set is called Miss Anya Darling! All the images are just that, darling!

I coloured her up with my copic markers, I haven’t been reaching for them a ton lately but I had a blast with them here!

Going back to my simple soft washy background made this one perfect!

Drawing in a Scene – The Greeting Farm

Hey all! I am here today sharing some The Greeting Farm inspiration!

I love how The Greeting Farm stamps are versatile, and just because they come out during a certain time of the year, doesn’t mean they can only be used for that. A prime example of this is Holiday Anya 6! She is all dressed up and cozy, with what I think was suppose to be a mug of hot chocolate. But in my scene it is not this at all!

I added a fun scene behind, by drawing it in in pencil then lining it with a copic multiliner. Colouring it all in with bright colours gave it a great summer feel!

The Greeting Farm – Miss Anya Coffee Break

Hey everyone! I have a fun card today. I have been getting myself out of my funk, and today’s card was nothing but fun! I feel am loving making cards again!

I stamped this girl from Miss Anya Coffee Break on a piece of toned grey paper. I decided to see what I could do with 6 pencils, one of them being black to retrace the stamped lines. It was a challenge and a great time to see all the different shades of brown I could get with the same 5 coloured pencils!

Pencils used:
Luminance – Sepia
Sepia 50%
Brown Ocher 10%
Faber Castell – Bister

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!

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!

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!
