TGF FFF: Color Combo Challenge!

Hi, Friends of the Farm! For my friends in the United States, I hope you had a safe and happy Thanksgiving holiday! We’re kicking off a new Farm Fresh Friday challenge today at The Greeting Farm, and Farmer Joni is challenging us to create with a color combo: silver, baby blue and white!
I chose “Holiday Anya” for my card today and added the hand warmer from “Holiday Anya 3” to my main image.
I puffed up some Liquid Applique on the fur trim of her dress and hand warmer with a heat tool. It’s also what I used to create the mistletoe berries in her hair. 
To work in the silver, I heat-set some silver ink with clear embossing powder on a strip of cardstock. 
So there you have it! For all the details on this 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!

TGF Farm Fresh Friday: Wonderful Washi!

Hi, everybody! Are you ready for a new Farm Fresh Friday challenge? I know you’ll find this week’s challenge wishy-washi wonderful! That’s right…we’re inspired by washi tape (real or faux)!

My card features Amelia from the newly released “Oliver and Amelia Valentine” set:

I used woodgrain washi tape to make a border on the card and also covered a wooden heart accent with the same washi tape.

Here’s the scoop on playing along with this and all of our Farm Fresh Friday challenges:
  • You must use a TGF stamp (rubber, digi, or clear) as your main image.
  • Entries must be uploaded via InLinkz no later than Thursday, November 14th 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!

There are lots of stamps in this set, so there are lots of possibilities for your creative projects! I made a chalkboard-styled display piece for my second project.

Who will be your alter ego?

Hi, everybody! Today, I’m sharing some news about some changes to our contests at The Greeting Farm!
First of all, beginning in November, we’re discontinuing the Retro Fresh challenge and Garden Variety Tuesdays (GVT), but have no fear, a new FUN contest will take place quarterly such as the one we’re about to announce today. We’re still continuing the Farm Fresh Friday challenges, so there will still be plenty of fun on the Farm!
We’re also excited to announce another customer-wide blog hop opportunity for the holidays. Be sure to stay tuned for info on the hop after the November 1 release!
Without further delay, we present a new contest:
How FUN is this going to be?   We know there are a lot of you creative crafters out there who do amazing things with TGF stamps, and sometimes you kick it up a notch or two by switching heads, bodies, clothes, etc. With Halloween coming up,  we thought it was the perfect time for a contest, so here’s your chance to mix up your TGF images to WIN a prize!
For my card, I combined CC Saturday‘s head with CC Dante‘s body:
So, what do you need to know to join in the fun and possibly win a prize? Let’s start with the rules:
  • You MUST use at least two (2) TGF stamps to create your character.
  • You must create a NEW project.You can create a card, altered project, or whatever you’d like. 
So, what’s the PRIZE
Don’t lose your head, but the winner will receive their choice of two (2) 4×6 stamp sets  AND a GUEST DESIGNER SPOT at The Greeting Farm!  
We’re changing the way we choose our Guest Designers as of November, so we can give even more talented TGF fans a chance to showcase their work.  Guest spots will now consist of 1-2 features a month on the TGF blog and will give LOTS of creative freedom to the designer, so believe me, you’ll want to show us what you’ve got!
When is the deadline?
The In Linkz tool will open at the TGF blog on Thursday, October 24 (the second day of our DT preview).  You have until 11:00 pm Central Time on Thursday, October 31 (Halloween!) to create your “Alter Ego” and upload it to the TGF blog The contest winner will be announced on RELEASE DAY, November 1st!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! We can’t wait to see who YOUR “Alter-EGO” will be!
