TGF FFF: Color Combo Challenge!

Hi, Friends of the Farm! For my friends in the United States, I hope you had a safe and happy Thanksgiving holiday! We’re kicking off a new Farm Fresh Friday challenge today at The Greeting Farm, and Farmer Joni is challenging us to create with a color combo: silver, baby blue and white!
I chose “Holiday Anya” for my card today and added the hand warmer from “Holiday Anya 3” to my main image.
I puffed up some Liquid Applique on the fur trim of her dress and hand warmer with a heat tool. It’s also what I used to create the mistletoe berries in her hair. 
To work in the silver, I heat-set some silver ink with clear embossing powder on a strip of cardstock. 
So there you have it! For all the details on this challenge, and to link up your entry, visit The Greeting Farm’s blog!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
Hugs,

TGF Farm Fresh Friday: Wonderful Washi!

Hi, everybody! Are you ready for a new Farm Fresh Friday challenge? I know you’ll find this week’s challenge wishy-washi wonderful! That’s right…we’re inspired by washi tape (real or faux)!

My card features Amelia from the newly released “Oliver and Amelia Valentine” set:


I used woodgrain washi tape to make a border on the card and also covered a wooden heart accent with the same washi tape.

Farm Fresh Friday at TGF: Anything But a Card!

Happy Friday, everybody! Hope you’ve had a great week and are ready for a new challenge at The Greeting Farm! Today, we’re challenging you to make “Anything But a Card”! (And that was a challenge for me!)

After much brainstorming, I decided to alter this mini notepad, and I love the end result! I’m thinking of doing a tutorial on this one, because it’s a great little holiday gift or stocking stuffer that I’m sure anyone could make! And, of course, “Holiday Anya 3” is on the cover!


The sentiment I used on the notepad cover is from TGF’s “I Heart Sweaters” set. I masked the word “heart” and used the rest of the sentiment, substituting a small punched heart shape for the missing word.

Here’s the scoop on playing along with this and all of our Farm Fresh Friday challenges:
  • You must use a TGF stamp (rubber, digi, or clear) as your main image.
  • Entries must be uploaded via InLinkz no later than Thursday, October 24th 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!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a fabulously creative weekend!

TGF FFF: For the Boys!

HAPPY FRIDAY, everybody! I’m back with a new challenge for your Farm Fresh Friday, and this one’s for the BOYS! That’s right, we’re making masculine cards this week! I couldn’t pass up the chance to color up new digi cutie “Beanie Ian” for today’s card!

The sentiment I used is from TGF’s “I Heart Sweaters” set. I just masked off the word “heart” and added a heart-shaped gem in its place. I also added some Liquid Applique’ and puffed it up with a heat tool to create the marshmallows in his mug and make pom poms on his hat.

Here’s the scoop on playing along with us for this challenge: 
  • You must use a TGF stamp (rubber, digi, or clear) as your main image.
  • Entries must be uploaded via InLinkz no later than Thursday, October 17 at NOON CST
