    For my card, I chose “Monday Morning” and let the colors in the photo inspire my card. I also threw in some chevron patterned paper and used a coordinating embossing folder for one of my elements.
    Since she’s a Creeper, I thought it would be fun to color her in different shades of cool grey, with just some spot color on her outfit.
    Supplies: image stamp (“Monday Morning” – The Greeting Farm), polka dot paper (Echo Park Dots & Stripes), flower, aqua/black stripes: (Basic Grey Lucille), brown chevron paper (My Mind’s Eye), sewing machine, Copic markers, Copic Spica clear glitter pen, rolled flower dies, white marker, Spellbinders Labels 28,  glitter brads (American Crafts).

    TGF Double Take Tuesday: Blue and Brown

    It’s Double Take Tuesday time again at The Greeting Farm! Are you loving all the previews of the new stamps that were just released? I’m having fun coloring and creating with all of them!

    I think my favorite this time around is “Anya Blooms.” While I’m enjoying all of the new stamps, I fell in love with the “Big Time Anyas” when they were released a few months ago during TGF’s birthday celebration. So, it might not be surprising that I chose “Anya Blooms” to be my first TGF DT card this month.

    Our DTT challenge for this week is the color combo of blue and brown. Here’s my card:

    (You might recognize the new flower die and stamps from last month’s release!)
    To make the accent, I stamped the flower center on a chipboard circle, then colored it with a lighter marker to match the daisies that Anya’s holding. The flower was cut from a scrap of plain white cardstock. I used a light grey marker to add some dimension to the die cut so it matches the daisies. Then, I stamped two leaves on coordinating paper, cut them out and added them under the flower accent. 
    Ready to join in on the fun? Great! Here’s what you need to know:
    • You must use a TGF stamp (rubber, digi, or clear) as your main image. 
    • Entries must be uploaded via InLinkz on the TGF blog no later than Monday, March 11, 2013 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 post’s comment section.)
    • The fabulous prize: A random participant will be selected to win a digital image of choice from the TGF store.
    • And here’s the double take: each week, our friends have the opportunity to DOUBLE that prize to either two digis or, you can trade those two digis for a SINGLE rubber stamp of choice, as long as we have 20 or more players each week! Encourage all your friends and family to play along!

    Hugs,

    Farm Fresh Friday: Flowers!

    Hi everybody! Welcome back for a new Farm Fresh Friday challenge at The Greeting Farm!
    This has been a crazy week…we’ve been on our cross-country move road trip from Washington state to Virginia. We got caught in some wild snowy weather in Colorado, and had a mishap with our moving trailer in Ohio today (the left wheel was wobbling, and when we were at the rental place getting it fixed, it wobbled enough to almost fall off!), but tomorrow should be a much easier day. Whew!
    I am so glad that I was able to work ahead and get all of my DT deadlines done before we hit the road. I’m hoping to get back to coloring tonight and this weekend…I’ve missed it so much!
    Without further ado, I’m pleased to present my card for this week’s FFF, featuring “Gracie” (and a die and a sentiment from the new clear stamp and die sets):
    You may recognize the flower die from the brand-new “Mini Fleurs w/die” set, and the sentiment from the new “Mini Cupcakes w/die” set! 
    I also used the sketch from this week’s DTT challenge…if you haven’t linked up your card yet, there’s still time to join us!
    For all the details on both of these challenges, stop by The Greeting Farm blog!
    Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
    Hugs,

    TGF Double Take Tuesday!

    Howdy, friends of The Greeting Farm! I have a new card to share with you today for our new Double Take Tuesday challenge at the TGF blog! This week, we have a sketch to inspire you, and I know you’ll have fun creating with it!

    Here is my card, featuring “Awareness Anya“:


    I changed a thing or two from the original sketch when I made my card. Instead of putting the sentiment along the side, I moved it in place of the accent flowers. It was too big to fit on a tab, so I used the twine in the place of the tab. Two brads in the lower right corner are accents to balance the card.

    and here’s our sketch, created by Showcase DT member Annie Rose:


    For all the guidelines on this challenge, and to link up your entry, just visit the TGF blog! We can’t wait to see what you’ll create! Don’t forget, you also have time to enter our Retro-Fresh “Hearts” challenge, and there are a few days left on our Farm Fresh Friday challenge, too!

     We’re still on the road, making our way from the West Coast to Virginia, and I can’t wait until we’re settled again! Thanks so much for stopping by today!

    Hugs,

    TGF Double Take Tuesday!
