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,

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
  • 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!
 I hope you have a wonderful weekend! Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Getting a head start on the holidays with this week’s GVT!

Hi, everybody! Hope your week is going well so far! I’ve been seeing lots of reminders lately that Christmas isn’t that far away, but somehow, it doesn’t seem like it’s that time of the year yet! I did make an ornament wreath, though…and I can’t wait to display it after Thanksgiving!
This week, Farmer Sandie is challenging us to get a head start on the holidays by making a Christmas card! So, I chose to color up newly released “Holiday Anya 3” for today’s card:

TGF FFF: Paper Piecing!

Happy Friday, everybody! Is it just me, or has this been a LONG week? It seems like it’s been forever since I’ve blogged!
It’s time for a new Farm Fresh Friday challenge at The Greeting Farm, of course, and this week’s theme is paper piecing! I’ll admit, I don’t paper piece as much these days because I love to color, but I still made the pieces look like they were colored with some shading. Here’s today’s card, featuring “Sunday“:
(I paper pieced his scarf and jeans, then added shading to those sections with BV00 and BV000 markers.)
I found the clear ticket and canvas embellishments in my stash. They were originally for a paper collection I had a few years ago, but I think it’s so cool that I was able to match them to the papers I picked for today’s card!
Make sure that you join me here and at the TGF blog next week, as we preview The Greeting Farm’s October release! For all of the details on this Farm Fresh Friday 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!
