I wanted to share a card that I made today for a challenge on the LawnFawnatics blog. This challenge was a color challenge and I thought that it was perfect for this smoothie stamp set called "So Smooth" that I picked up from Lawn Fawn not too long ago. The colors are all bright and fun, I popped up some of the images for more dimension and added Glossy Accents to make everything look wet and shiny. I love how this one turned out!
Have a great day!

Welcome to my blog!
It’s the 15th, and that means RELEASE DAY for the new July stamp sets! And guess what? We have FOUR releases this month, so it's extra fun! We have been previewing the new sets over the past few days and now they are available to purchase at the shop!
To celebrate, we are having a BLOG HOP, where one lucky fan will win these sets for their very own! Yay!
Be sure to leave a comment on each designer’s blog, then head back to The Greeting Farm Blog to let us know that you completed the hop. You have until July 19th at 12pm CST to leave your comments. We will announce the random winner later in the week!
I chose to use "Hang Out Ian" for my blog hop card. He's just so dang cute, isn't he? He comes with two sentiments, both shown on the card above, a hamburger and a hot dog. There's also a coordinating die to cut out Ian as well. You just might want to pick that up too!
Our wonderful design team!!!! Happy hopping, everyone!

Preview days continue for The Greeting Farm with this cute set called "You're Spectacular"...and she is, isn't she? This Anya set comes with a main image of Anya, some sentiments and several pairs of glasses that you can either stamp right onto her face, or cut out and just add to your project. There is a die available to cut out Anya as well, you might as well add that to your shopping cart while you're at it! This set is available on the 15th of July, 2017.
Today I made a card and a small treat box. I used the sentiment, the main Anya image and the glasses for the card. For the treat box I opted to just use a sentiment and some of the glasses. Mix it up, am I right?
Have a great day!

I love preview days, don't you??? Today I want to show you a new stamp set from The Greeting Farm. I made a star shaped triple easel card featuring "Hang Out Ian" and I have to say, I'm in love!

And yes, there's a coordinating die for sale too! Mark your calendars so you can pick him up to add to your Greeting Farm collection!

Hello Greeting Farm fans!
Are you ready for another preview? This month we have four sets that are being released, so make sure you keep stopping by to check and see what's new!
Remember, these sets will be available at thegreetingfarm.com on the 15th of July! Also on that same day, you can participate in the blog hop and have a chance to win the WHOLE RELEASE! Your chances are SUPER good, please play along!
I used one of the characters from "Our Song" to create this fun gift bag, but there are two main images in the set. There are also a variety of music notes, some cute birds and a heart, plus sentiments. You know how I love plugging the die sets and you guessed it, there's absolutely a die set to go along with this set. I'm excited because those little music notes and such would be hard to fussy cut, so the die is the perfect solution!
See you tomorrow!

I'm very happy to be here on the blog today showcasing a few more projects that I made using stamps and dies from The Greeting Farm! I'm still not over it that I made the design team and that I actually get to work with all of the new releases every single month! It was completely a crafty goal of mine and I am still pinching myself!
Today I want to share two projects with you. The first one is a card that I made using the release from June called Text Me Anya. I didn't happen to include the phone on this project (LOL) so she's not actually texting anyone but the phone is a separate stamp so you can choose to add it or not. I like versatility in a stamp set, don't you? I put that cutie pie up onto floral paper layered with a gold glittered overlay that I die cut, added ribbon and floral die cuts...a little stickles....a little glitter pen and called it good. I enjoy a good sparkle. I paper pieced her shirt and shorts, I'm super into that lately.
This next card is actually an insert for a PL pocket. I used the digital image called Halle. You KNOW how much I love a digi image, am I right? The benefits are numerous! I printed her, colored her up and placed her on a little polaroid with watermelons on the bottom. I'm wondering if any of you would have noticed without my mentioning it that I colored her outfit in layers of color like the watermelons? I placed the polaroid on top of some fun watermelon print paper and then white card stock. I have some pocket pages that will fit this card perfectly, and I can't wait to use it!
Take care, everyone and I hope you're enjoying your summer!
