TGF Special Halloween Release Day



Happy Friday everyone! It’s here…..RELEASE DAY for the surprise Halloween stamp sets and their coordinating dies.  We had two days of previews (Scaredy Cats and Peek-a-Boo) and they are now available for purchase at The Greeting Farm Store.  Below is a reminder of my preview projects.



And now onto my  release day project... because I created cards for previews, I wanted to create an envelope to send one of the cards in. We as card makers get so focused on the cards that we forget that plain white envelopes don't do the cards justice and that they deserve "tricked out" envelopes. hehe. I used a combination of both stamp sets on the envelope, going for a batsy, semi-spooky theme while making sure to keep the cute and cuddly. 



Now for the even more fun part, with every new release all farm friends get the chance to win their very own stamp sets so make sure you hop on over to The Greeting Farm for some trick or treating. Good Luck!

TGF Special Release - Halloween Preview Day 2: Peek a Boo



Hi, I'm back with day2 of previews, which will be available for purchase on Friday the 26th. This time around we have Halloween images for you. Today we bring you a set of fun little ghosts playing dress up, some in some spookier costumes than others. With this set, you'll get a chance at cutesy and spooky. I was inspired by the ghosts and went for a cloud card, which is a favorite of mine. I figured who better to be up in the sky playing around than a lot of mini ghosts. I used the traditional Halloween colors but went for a more playful look to convey the fun you can have on that day.

Now make sure you pop on over to the TGF blog to check out all the farmer inspiration to get you creating this day. Make sure to come back tomorrow for our release day hop where you will have the opportunity to win some Halloween candy.
Thanks for stopping by!

Camp Create: Monochromatic Magic


Hello! I'm here to share a card created for MFT's Camp Create - Monochromatic theme. The Camp was put on to bring crafters together by participating in several challenges and join in on clean adult fun. Who said camp was only for kids? 

My card was inspired by this adorable dragon that has a look of confusion. He looks like he's unsure of what's happening but that's what makes him great because he can be used for several type of projects, and here he's blue-ish and grey because the recipient is feeling ill, actually the recipient is "dragon (drag-in)" Get it? Lol, took me a bit to figure it out. I was hoping to join in on the rest of the challenges but time got the best of me. Til next camp time.
Thanks for stopping by!

Camp Create Bonfire: Adventure


Happy Wednesday! I'm here to share a card created for MFT's Camp Create's Bonfire Challenge - a single layer card. The Camp was put on to bring crafters together by participating in several challenges and join in on clean adult fun. Who said camp was only for kids? 

My card was inspired by Harry Potter. I had that flying scene in my head when I began to stamp away but as I began to color, I was inspired by all the colorful buildings that can be found all over Europe. So let's just say that a detour was taken to have an adventure.
Thanks for stopping by!
