It’s Farm Fresh Friday at TGF!

With April drawing to a close and May just around the corner, we’re celebrating all of the blooms and blossoms we’re hoping to see next month for this week’s Farm Fresh Friday at The Greeting Farm!

It has been a curious trip through Wonderland this month, and I hope you’ve scooped up our limited edition “Beans”! If not, there’s just a little time left before the portal closes on this release…once the stamps are sold out, they won’t be restocked!

Today, I’m sharing a card with “Queen Bean” and some more of the coffee filter roses I made for last week’s FFF:

Supplies: image stamp (Queen Bean” – The Greeting Farm), patterned papers (Echo Park), Spellbinders Labels 25 die, twine, sewing machine, foam tape, assorted Copic markers, Stickles, coffee filters.
Although I only received one lovely comment asking for the tutorial, I may find it in my “heart” to put something together in an upcoming post! ūüėČ
Here’s what you’ll need to know to play along with this challenge:
  • 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, May 2nd at NOON CST.

It’s a TGF release to DIE for!

Hi there! Hope you’re enjoying our special new release blog hop…and that you are as excited as we are about this new release!

The Greeting Farm¬†is branching out in a NEW direction, and we are so excited to unveil what you may have seen bits and pieces of after CHA! ¬†Yes, the rumors are true! ¬†While TGF will still continue to bring you the cute characters you’ve come to know and love, I’m excited to share a new collection of clear stamp sets with you that come packaged with….MATCHING DIES!
TGF took its time testing them until they found the perfect fit and we think you’ll love them! ¬†They work in any standard die cutting machine (Cuttlebug, Big Shot, Grand Calibur, etc.) and come tucked in with their matching stamp sets for an amazing price of only $10.50 per set! ¬†Your papercrafting adventure just got a little more exciting, right?
To celebrate this exciting news,¬†The Greeting Farm¬†is welcoming SIX talented guest bloggers to our party today and we couldn’t be more excited to have them along with us!¬†
I used all four of the sets today! They work great together or separate! Each comes with several images and a matching sentiment, giving you LOTS of creative options!
Here are my cards:

I used the metal die to cut a cloud out of felt. It cuts beautifully!
You can mix and match the tops and bottoms of the cupcakes in the set, giving you lots of fun options!
The sets work great together and build on each other! They are also great for accenting cards and projects created with all of your favorite characters from The Greeting Farm!

TGF Sneak Peek: New Clear Stamps & DIES!

Howdy, everybody! Just popping in to share a sneak peek of the latest release at The Greeting Farm!

We’re doing a full blog hop tomorrow, but thought you’d like a preview before then!

I’m using two of the FOUR new clear stamp and die sets on my card today, “Mini Flower w/die” and “Mini Butterflies w/die”:


Each set contains clear image stamps, a coordinating sentiment and a matching die. The dies work in all standard die cutting machines (Cuttlebug, Big Shot, Grand Calibur, etc.) and are tucked in with each stamp set.

Be sure to join us tomorrow for our new release blog hop, when you’ll have the chance to win ALL FOUR stamp and die sets! TGF assembled a fabulous blog hop with its Design Team (and some crafty guests) to inspire you with lots of possibilities for these sets!

Thanks so much for stopping by! You can see all of today’s peeks at The Greeting Farm blog!
