TGF Farm Fresh Friday: It’s So Easel!

Hi everybody! It’s time for a new Farm Fresh Friday challenge at The Greeting Farm!

Hope you had a great week…it’s been kind of a roller coaster for me…we are trying to close on a new house next week, and it’s been pretty crazy!

OK, now on to our challenge! This week, we’re making easel cards. If you’ve never made an easel card before, Showcase Team Member Annie Rose made this awesome graphic to show you one way to put it all together:

You can make these in really any shape or dimension, but the technique of creating the easel is still the same. Normally, I make square easel cards or horizontal easel cards. I think this is my first “portrait” easel card! 
I’m spotlighting TGF’s “Blush Beatrice” today:

Other supplies: kraft cardstock, sentiment stamp (“Blush Beatrice” – The Greeting Farm), twine (Whisker Graphics), patterned paper (“Lemonade” mini pad – Basic Grey), dies (Classic Circles, Lacey Circles- Spellbinders), Copic markers, wood veneer banner accent (Studio Calico), brads, foam tape, corner rounder, sewing machine.
Ready to play along with our challenge? Here’s how: 
  • You must use a TGF stamp (rubber, digi, or clear) as your main image.
  • Entries must be uploaded via InLinkz at the bottom of the challenge post on the TGF blog no later than Thursday, March 28th at NOON CST.
  • You can add a direct link to your entry from your personal blog, SCS gallery, Flickr or TGF galleria. (If the InLinkz tool is missing, feel free to link your submission URL in the comment section!)
  • The fabulous prize: A random participant will be selected to win their choice of an in-stock SINGLE RUBBER STAMP or a 4×6 set!
Don’t forget, there’s still time to enter our Double Take Tuesday challenge (flowers) and our Retro-Fresh challenge (Boys)! Check out each challenge post for all the details!

Hugs,

Farm Fresh Friday — Greeting Farm Style!

Happy Friday, friends of the Farm! I’m so happy to be here today with a St. Patrick’s Day-inspired card to share with you! I chose The Greeting Farm’s new Blush on the block, “Beatrice,” for my card:

After coloring her, I wanted to add a clover accent, so I punched four mini hearts out of cardstock. I added some details with a Copic marker, ran the punched pieces through a Xyron sticker machine, and then arranged them over her hands to make it look like she’s holding a clover! And of course, I had to add a little sparkle with some Stickles!

Other supplies: patterned paper (My Mind’s Eye), Spellbinders dies (circle, small scalloped circle), embossing folder (Sizzix) , twine (Whisker Graphics), sewing machine, mini heart punch, Copic markers, opaque white marker, Stickles glitter glue.
