    It’s a fence-tastic Tuesday at TGF!

    Hi, everybody! It’s our last day of May previews at The Greeting Farm, and today, I have some fence-tastic cards to show you…along with a preview of our new fence die!

    I chose to do two cards…one with each new Anya and the fence die. It’s a great way to build a scene on your cards and projects!

    Here’s my first card with “Anya Strolls”!
    TGF supplies: “Anya Strolls” stamp set, TGF Fence Die. Other supplies: patterned paper (“Kneehighs” 6×6 pad – Basic Grey; yellow polka dot paper is a scrap from my stash), assorted Copic markers, ink (Memento Tuxedo Black, Espresso Truffle), butterfly accent (Pink Paislee).
    I added the butterfly accent from my stash because I thought it would be good for the puppy to have something to look at, and to chase later!
    For my second card, I chose “Garden Anya” and made space behind the fence die for a little pocket, which is also a great place to add a gift card!

    I also used TGF’s cloud die and flower die to help accent the scene, and I used an embossing folder to make the woodgrain pattern in the fence. I just inserted the die cut into the folder and ran it through the machine!

    TGF supplies: “Mini Cloud Die“, “Mini Fleur Stamps and Die“, “Garden Anya”. Other supplies: patterned paper (“Green at Heart” 6×6 mini pad – Basic Grey), assorted Copic markers, embossing folder (Sizzix/Tim Holtz), sewing machine, kraft cardstock, ink (“Melon Mambo” – Stampin’ Up, “Northern Pine” and “Tuxedo Black” Tsukineko Memento), gift card.

    So, what do you think? All of our new dies and stamps will be available TOMORROW in the TGF Store! Be sure to join us for our DT blog hop tomorrow, where we’ll show you some more fun possibilities with our new release!
    And, one lucky reader/commenter will win their very own fence die! Just comment here and on the TGF blog and we’ll draw a random winner!

    Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you have a wonderful day!
    Hugs,
