SOG New Release: Threshold Mae!

Greetings! You are cordially invited to the first day of previews for the December clear stamp release at Some Odd Girl!

Today’s card features “Threshold Mae,” who has just tied the knot with her true love! This set also comes with two sentiments; one is showcased on my card! You can see ALL of the GORGEOUS-ness that the other Odd Girls created with this set at the SOG blog!

I used a few new techniques on my card that I hope will inspire you! I folded some silver washi tape and used a mini heart hole punch to make a border strip. 
I also changed the look of the two heart brads. They were originally white, but I coated them in watermark ink, and dipped the inked top in silver embossing powder and heat set it (tweezers are a BIG help to hold the brad while using the heat tool). Keeping the brad in the tweezers, I applied another layer of embossing powder to the brad and heat set it again. 
Stay tuned…We’ve got lots of presents for YOU this week…in addition to two more clear stamp sets releasing this week, there will be two new digital stamps in the SOG Store tomorrow! AND be sure to make a note to join us for our HOL-ODD-DAY Hop on December 9!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Hope you have a wonderful week, and I’ll see you back here tomorrow!

TGF July Release Preview!

HELLO Friends of the Farm! It’s our third and final day of sneak peek previews for the July release at The Greeting Farm! Today, we’re previewing the Polaroid die set. This set also comes with a film strip die and a larger heart die.

I was inspired by a retro Hollywood theme when I was creating my previews for this release, so for my first card, I’m pairing “Tuesday Premiere” with the Polaroid die and film strip. I also colored her in cool shades of grey to match the black & white papers:

And I couldn’t resist doing another card with the retro-fresh loveliness ofCheeky Glamour!

TGF June Release Preview: Charlotte Chic!

Happy Thursday, Friends of the Farm! It seems like forever since I’ve blogged, but what I have for you today is worth the wait!
We’ve been previewing the June release this week at The Greeting Farm, and it’s my turn to share some creations with you that I made with the newest Wild Sprout, “Charlotte Chic”!
She’s a new, updated rubber stamp based on the “Charlotte” digi that’s still available in The Greeting Farm Store…and she’s fashionably fabulous!
For my first card, I paired Charlotte Chic with some bright, fun papers. Making these cards gave me the opportunity to practice my skills for coloring curly hair and darker skin tones! I paper pieced her shirt with some coordinating paper and added a flower to her headband. The sentiment I used is from the “Anya Styles” set.
For my second card, I kept the theme of bright and bold colors and added some polka dots to her headband and shirt. The sentiment on this card is from the “Anya Celebrates” set.

So, what do you think? This fashionable and fierce Wild Sprout will make her runway debut June 1st, but, you can have the chance to win her just by commenting on the blogs of the DT members who are previewing “Charlotte Chic” today: Suzanne (you’re here),  RachelAnnie Rose, and Jodi! 

You have until 11:30 PM CST tonight to comment on the blogs and stop by TGF’s blog to let us know that you visited and left comments on all of them!

And, don’t forget about our RELEASE DAY BLOG HOP on Saturday, June 1st starting at the TGF blog!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
