TGF Garden Variety Tuesday: Halloween Colors!

Hi, Friends of the Farm! It’s time for a new Garden Variety Tuesday challenge at The Greeting Farm!
This week, we’re inspired by Halloween colors, so I’m featuring the “Hallobean” digi stamp and the TGF Fence Die on today’s card:
I love that Halloween papers now feature more colors than the traditional orange and black. The pops of purple, blue, and green on some of the newer collections make them usable all year long!
No tricks here, but there are are a few things you’ll need to know to play along with our challenge:
  • You must use a TGF stamp (rubber, digi, or clear) as your main image.
  • Entries must be uploaded via the InLinkz tool on the TGF blog at the bottom of the post no later than Monday, October 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 a comment.)
  • The fabulous prize: A random participant will be selected to win a digital image of choice from the TGF store.
  • But, WAIT! 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, so encourage all your friends and family to play along!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Hope you’re having a wonderful week so far!

Hugs,

I chose one of the new cowgirl cuties from the new “You’re Wanted” set for today’s card:

Happy Tuesday, Friends of The Greeting Farm! We’re getting ready to kick off our October release previews tomorrow, but we’ve come up with one more Garden Variety Tuesday challenge for September! This week’s challenge will last for two weeks so we can bring you all of the new release festivities on October 1!

Our theme for this week’s GVT is “Blue Raspberry,” which means that we want to see berry pink and aqua blue on your entry!

I made two bookmarks with the “Royal Cutie Pies“:

Getting sketchy with The Greeting Farm for GVT!

Happy Tuesday, everybody! Is it feeling like autumn where you are? I’m loving the cooler temperatures we’ve had this weekend and so far this week!
 
Fall is my favorite time of the year, especially the cooler weather and colors as the leaves change. So, it wouldn’t be a surprise if I told you that I’ve been hooked on creating with fall themed paper and colors, right?
 
For this week’s Garden Variety Tuesday at The Greeting Farm, we have a sketch as our theme!
 
I chose “Gracie,” one of the Wild Sprouts released a few months ago, and the sentiment from this month’s new release “Frou Frou Fabulous” for today’s card. The papers are from the “Persimmon” mini pad by Basic Grey, which coordinated well with embellishments I have from one of their past fall collections.
 
And here’s the sketch, designed by my very talented TGF DT buddy, Annie Rose:

It’s a Texture-iffic Garden Variety Tuesday challenge at TGF!

Hello everybody and happy Tuesday! 
How are things where you are? My parents came to visit over the Labor Day holiday last weekend, and I think I’ve finally rested enough! I’m so glad we got to spend the long weekend with them, but all that sightseeing and fun wore me out! LOL!
I’m glad to be going back to my regular schedule this week, because having the holiday threw me off! I was so mixed up on what day of the week it was!
And, because it’s Tuesday, that means it’s time for a new challenge at The Greeting Farm! We’d like to see how you add texture to your entry! I’m featuring “Frou Frou Fabulous” today, and I added some Liquid Applique to the trim of her dress and her headband for texture on my card. Applying heat to the Liquid Applique made it puff up.
Ready to join in the fun? Here’s the info you need to know: 
  • You must use a TGF stamp (rubber, digi, or clear) as your main image.
  • Entries must be uploaded via the InLinkz tool on the TGF blog at the bottom of the post no later than Monday, September 16 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 a comment.)

TGF GVT: Tic Tac Toe!

It’s Tuesday, so that means it’s time for a new Garden Variety Tuesday challenge at The Greeting Farm!

This week, we’re playing Tic Tac Toe! We picked three elements in a row from a game board of nine squares to use in our cards! I chose a die/punch, patterned paper and glitter for today’s card, featuring Anya from the new “Picture Perfect” set:


So, here’s what my Tic-Tac-Toe board would look like:


So, you’d pick three items in a line, whether they are across, down or diagonally, and use them to inspire your card or project for the challenge!

A colorful combination for Garden Variety Tuesday!
