Getting sketchy for Garden Variety Tuesday!

Hi, everybody! We’re getting sketchy with the newest Garden Variety Tuesday challenge at The Greeting Farm! I picked “Cheeky Lessons” for today’s card:
I added some Glossy Accents on her glasses and the apple and substituted two metallic brads for the buttons on the sketch. The sentiment is from my stash.
And here’s our fantastic and fabulous sketch, designed by Farmer Annie Rose:

I haven’t been listing all of my supplies because I’m not sure if it’s still helpful to my readers. Would you still like me to list the supplies for my cards, or just the paper, or are you OK with just the picture of the card? Or, instead of a list of supplies, do you prefer the click-and-shop links that other bloggers use? Just let me know in the comments section…thanks so much!

And THANK YOU so much for stopping by today! It’s a busy posting week for me, so I hope you’ll bear with me…I’ll have at least two posts per day until Saturday, but I can assure you that you’ll be inspired and delighted!

Hugs,

TGF Garden Variety Tuesday!

Happy Tuesday, y’all! It’s time for a new Garden Variety Tuesday at The Greeting Farm!
After seeing all of Farmer Joni‘s lovely no-line coloring, I am taking the plunge this week and trying it myself!
I am always skeptical when it comes to coloring things this way, but I’m pretty happy with the finished product! I always keep a “regular” stamped image of what I’m no-line coloring in front of me as I color. It helps to guide me as I’m trying to figure out the parts of the image.
TGF images are perfect for those of you who have been wanting to give no-line coloring a try. Starting with a very detailed image will quickly overwhelm you…start with something simpler and familiar and give it a try! I use Memento Angel Pink to stamp images when I’m no-line coloring instead of traditional black ink.
I went a bit retro on today’s card with “Wild West Anya”, who has ridden off into the sunset at The Greeting Farm (she’s retired). I also used TGF’s Polaroid die, which was just released this month as part of a 3-die set: 
In case you haven’t guessed, today’s GVT is a color combo challenge:

Thanks so much for stopping by today, pardner!

=====================
Hello friends of the Farm! I hope you’re having an absolutely fabulous week so far!
If you haven’t had the chance to hop along with us for our July release blog hop, make sure you do, because all comments are due by 11:30PM Central Time TONIGHT (July 2nd)…one lucky hopper will take home the grand prize package…”Tuesday Premiere“, “Cheeky Lessons” AND the Film and Polaroid Die Set!
The blog hop starts at the TGF blog (here’s the link to the hop post). Once you’re done visiting all the blogs, stop by the TGF blog to let us know how much you enjoyed the hop!
Even though we’re still celebrating the July release, we’re starting a new Garden Variety Tuesday challenge, and it’s one that should encourage a LOT of entries: “Anything Goes”!

I chose “Tuesday Premiere” for today’s card! I found this paper pack on clearance and thought it would be perfect to pair with Tuesday Premiere! (The sentiment is from my stamp stash.)

So, are you ready to play along with us? Here’s what you’ll 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, July 8 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! I hope you have a wonderful rest of the week, and a safe and happy Fourth of July holiday if you’re in the United States!

Hugs,

It’s Garden Variety Tuesday at The Greeting Farm!

Hi, crafty friends of TGF! I’m sharing my card for the new Garden Variety Tuesday challenge at The Greeting Farm’s blog! We have a sketch for you this week, courtesy of  DT member Maria Therese!
Here’s my take! I like finding new ways to use my dies, and here’s another way to use the Onesie Die…as a T-shirt! (I just cut the bottom of the onesie off and stamped the cupcake from the “Mini Cupcakes” set to decorate the shirt.
For your creative reference, here’s our challenge sketch:

Garden Variety Tuesday: 1+5+5

Happy Tuesday, Friends of the Farm! I hope your week is going well so far!
Thank you so much for all the wonderful comments you left for me and the rest of the DT during this weekend’s new release blog hop! We love hearing what you think about our creations with each month’s new release!

Our Garden Variety Tuesday challenge for this week is based on today being the 155th day of the year. Your challenge, should you choose to accept it (and I’m really hoping you will), is to use a recipe of 1+5+5 on your entry.
For my card, I chose to feature “Winky Bean” (1 image) and added five flowers + five adhesive pearls/gems …whew! But, you can make your own combination of 1+5+5 for this challenge! 

TGF stamp: “Winky Bean“; paper (“Sugar Rush” 6×6 pad), glitter brads, flowers, sheer ribbon, assorted Copic markers, adhesive gems/pearls, Stickles, Spellbinders Labels 25 die.
So there you have it! Be sure and stop by the TGF blog to see what the rest of the DT created for this week’s Garden Variety Tuesday and to get all of the details on how to link up YOUR entry for this challenge!

It’s Garden Variety Tuesday at The Greeting Farm!

Howdy, Friends of the Farm! It’s time for a new Garden Variety Tuesday challenge at The Greeting Farm!
I decided to feature Latte Anya on today’s card:
Supplies: image stamp (Latte Anya” – The Greeting Farm), cardstock (Stampin UP), striped paper (Fancy Pants), assorted Copic markers, orange chevron paper (My Mind’s Eye), twine (Whisker Graphics), button, sewing machine, foam tape, embossing folder.
The sentiment is from my stash of various coffee-themed stamps. Before we moved to Virginia, we lived near Seattle, Washington, the home of Starbucks Coffee. I became quite a coffee snob in the process! Now that we’re back East, I don’t go out to Starbucks as much, but I still love a cup of coffee in the morning (even though now it’s the store brand)!
Our challenge for today is inspired by this group of photos. We’ve also included the color palette in case you’d like to draw your inspiration from it instead of the items in the photos.
For all the details and guidelines on this challenge, visit The Greeting Farm’s blog!

The deadline for this challenge is in two weeks, because we’re previewing the June release next week and won’t have a new GVT. So, be sure to upload your entry to the TGF blog before Monday, June 3 at NOON CST.


Thanks so much for stopping by!
